There’s a lot of games to look forward to this year. Jim’s been writing about some of them today, in fact. (Parts one and two.) Amongst them is Just Cause 2, which has to be up there with Mafia 2 and The Old Republic in peak levels on my crazed antic-o-meter. Every video of the game makes it look like the most awesome fun toy (with that constant caveat: just so long as they don’t let the game get in the way). Their latest video(s) is a cute idea to show off how many different approaches you can take to a mission, with a choose-your-own YouTube adventure. The first part of it is below.
An operative has been kidnapped, and your task is to bring her back. Starting with the video below you can pick what approach you’d like to take to each situation, thus branching off in various different directions. Not all will be successful, but a mission failed choice will then let you pick an alternate route straight away. My favourite moment: the cable car gag.
