"It's not realistic. We don't want it to be realistic." See, this is why I'm so looking forward to Just Cause 2. Fi-i-i-inally a game that isn't trying to boast realism. But rather boast lunacy. The latest trailer shows off the vehicular stunts you can do, from tethering cars to statues, destroying sports cars off road, and just nonchalantly included in there, jumping from a private yet to a fullsize airliner. I might explode before this comes out.
The damage modelling on the cars looks brilliant, especially combined with their unrealistic acceleration and braking capabilities. And all the parachute leaping. And most of all, the tethering. How will anyone get anything done when you've got a tether to play with? Which means my continual concern remains: what if the main game itself gets in the way of having all this fun? We shall have to see. The game is due at the end of March.
