Is it worth it?

I was thinking about buying JC2 but I don't know if it's worth the money.

100% yes.I spent about 20 hours beating Just Cause 2. And that was roughly 30 percent of what the entire game has to offer. This game will keep you busy for a long time.

i say yes, i have had it for a while, got it on offer at store, just started playing it and loving it

true free roam sandbox reminds me of the fun in older GTA games but with less gangsta

enjoy the destruction

It's definitely worth the purchase. It's a great time-waster until the big games are released (Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Skyrim, Modern Warfare 3, etc.) and you'll have tons of fun with it. There are endless amounts of things to do in this game; and with the massive environment, it makes it even more worth the buy.

It's definately worth buying. I've just passed the 65% completion and I already have 55+ hours and I'm still playing it, waiting for Assassin's Creed: Revelations comes out. Have fun, I'm sure you will!

I was watching videos of Just Cause 2, and it really caught my eye. I'm looking into purchasing it

It is very worth it!! but a hint from just starting out on the game.. your first couple missions (before you are giving free roam) can be confusing because of the controls. then again I went from a Mass Effect 2 to this and it was a different animal. So, if you get discouraged the first few missions just grind through because once you are free to roam.. it is pure awesome!!

Grab yourself a rocket military chopper and go to TOWN..

Pvt. Joker: How can you shoot innocent women and children like that?
Helicopter gunner: It's easy. You just don't lead them as much. You see, anyone that runs, is V.C. Anyone that stands still is well disciplined V.C. Ain't war hell?

Absolutely worth of money! Very addictive and fun to play.. but when you have all missions completed and you have to explore and blow up things, it's little bit boring.. military guys always shouts same things, enemy choppers gives no challenge if you are flying with chopper, all military bases and civil towns are from the same mold and cars are terrible to drive.. but anyway, that's not big deal cause game is still very fun and Panau is maybe something best in xbox360.

The full 1000G is a lot of grinding but I had fun to do it anyway.

JC2 is a sandbox game in every way possible - in good and in bad. But for the third game (?): please, come up with a decent story! Running around the island was fun for the first 25 hours, but after that it got boring.

Really really fun sandbox game. I hope they include co-op in the next game, that would be great.

The only downside to this game, is the achievement 75% completion. That one is a really boring grind.

I would recommend it, I need to go back and finish it but what I played of it was fun. It can get repetitive but all in all a great game.

I feel like I've been playing this game for a month straight, it just won't end. Fun and all, but Christ.

It seems like the consensus here is that it's worth the money, but I hear that there may be some glitches that negatively affect the game. Was there anything glitch-related that made certain missions almost impossible or caused you to restart all over from the beginning?

It's one of the best Open World games I've ever played. A lot of fun to just jump into a plane and fly around the island.

I had a lot of fun completing this game. It does eventually get a little boring trying to get to the 75% though. There's a ton of landscape and terrain to cover for those who like travelling and Hard difficulty wasn't all that bad. I'd recommend the game

Install it to your HD and you shouldn't have any trouble. I didn't experience a single glitch during my playthrough.

Because the game is just so goddamned enormous, it might have spots where you'll get a little bored, but overall JC2 is a very underrated, fun game.
