Just Cause 2 is a game about gravity and grappling hooks. It’s what happens when Grand Theft Auto and Far Cry hook up, and make Saints Row the godfather to their bastard child. The child is baptised in a font of flame that is kicked out of a helicopter and parachutes onto the burning wing of a plane that is tethered to a lorry that is driving off a cliff while somebody stands on its roof adopting a surfer pose while shooting rockets at the moon.
A sequel has just been announced. I sincerely hope I can fire my grappling hook into the moon and swing it at my enemies like a big ol’ wrecking ball. Details below.
