It has some of the worst shooter mechanics and enemy AI ever, but some people get a thrill from bouncing around the world with their grapple, I guess.

It also has horrible VA and story.


That's the thing brah, it doesn't try for anything "revolutionary" or "realistic". There is only fun and that's what gaming has been missing.

Yet it's still easily one of the best games in years.

Sorry but jumping out of your jet and surfing it while flying through the air is just plain fun. Not too mention the world is beautiful.

Just downloaded some mods.

This game is fun without them.
This game is some of the best fun I've had in years with them.

Take a look at that and tell me if you are still disappointed. If you are, don't go anywhere near JC2, because the multiplayer mod is awesome and loads of fun.

Well..I suppose if terrible AI, shooter mechanics, painful animations and VA, and a generally lousy game are fun...then OK.

I ask again . . .


As compared to what? Go ahead, name an action game that's more fun than Just Cause 2.

"Fun" is subjective. An action game that I had more fun with? Any TR game, GTA3, VC, SA, SR2, 3, 4 (and 4 kinda sucked, really). well...pretty much any action game I have ever played was more fun for me.

So like I said, if terrible mechanics and terrible animation, and terrible everything else is fun for you, then I'm glad your purchase was worth it. JC2 just annoyed me, it was not fun at all.

Just FYI, JC2 made it to Yahtzee's #1 best game of 2010... you know, the guy famous for hating basically every game ever made? He thinks it's the best game that came out in all 2010.
