E3: 10 minutes of Just Cause 2

E3: 10 minutes of Just Cause 2

Eidos and Avalanche Studio offer us ten minutes of commented gameplay of Just Cause 2. The first episode was one of the first games of this generation to be noted for its technical prowess. We wish that the same will happen for this sequel wich already showcases some breathtaking vistas.

Looked awesome actually. Hope the vehicle physics are better than in the first game, but that grappling hook was amazing.. I love how you can tie any two objects together, even friggin jeeps to bridges lol!
But it almost looks too powerful, to be able to fly around nonstop like superman.

As for the swedish dude.. :D Why did he have a questionmark? At the end? Of every sentence? :=))

The original was one of the prettiest games (at a distance) that I've played. Was just a joy to move around in, looking at gorgeous vistas in the distance. Looking forward to an even prettier sequel.

Wow, this guy is a monkey.

Graphics are really really good. Lots of pop in, but still, really good.

Gameplay seems to be a bit inconsistent though. AI is downright terrible. I like some of the ridiculous things you can do though, so it's not bad. It may just come down to how it feels when you are playing it. I'm hoping for a demo.

Looks great, I didn't play the first one but this one is really interesting if you ask me...

The "Ok, this guy is dead" comment was golden :-)

Looks great, I've been saying forever that this beats Mercenaries 2 to the ground. My biggest complaint so far is that it's too similar to Just Cause. That seems to be a major problem this generation. Forza 2 is Forza Motorsport in HD, Fable 2 is Fable in HD, Overlord 2 is Overlord in HD, Crysis 2 is Far Cry in HD - I wish developers would take more risks and offer new experiences and not just updates or slight variations of previous games. Cause I'm not interested in paying $60 to do in Just Cause 2 what I already did for 100 hours in Just Cause.

AI leaves little to be desired, but we don't know if the devs just made it easy so they could demo it. Looks like a lot of fun though.

Is there multiplayer I never played the first game?

Both were just upscaled PS2 games, just like the first Just Cause. They were running in HD but they had SD graphics/details/textures.

If Crysis is FarCry in HD then what is FarCry 2?

FC2 has a totally different setting.

Over the top brainless fun it seems which is no problem with me. But, brainless, it truly is. The AI is so dumb!

The ps3 kEEPS STEALING 360 EXCLUSIVES THIS AND DEAD RISING NEXT IT'LL BE Lost planet :).
Some necessary perspective for those that cause such a huff when the situation is reversed.

I had the same impression. JC's mid air action was "balanced", but JC2 is almost a superhero game. It's slightly over the top.

Sold. This is what Bionic Commando should've been. It has enough of its own flavour to stand out amongst other games. Car surfing hook-jacking parachuting = EPIC WIN.
Commented on 2009-06-04 14:05:18
Nice graphics. Mercenaries + crysis + bionic commando = this = awesome.

(even though bc sucks)

GREAT!

When was it said that JC2 would be xbox360 exclusive?
Even if it was said it wouldn't matter because imho JC1 wasn't that amazing and I think that JC2 won't be either. It looks amazing but the gameplay just isn't my cup of tea.

As you can imagine I don't give a sh** about exclusives because I like it when everybody can enjoy good games.
Nonetheless exclusives are there to sell units and/or to demonstrate the power of each system.
Although I think that Uncharted2 would look the same on xbox360 if NaughtyDog would develop it for MS.
PS3 and xbox360 are on par...

Boring ;P

Crysis is a lot more than Far Cry HD though... but.. on topic!

This game looks surprisingly awesome. I hated the demo for the first game.. but this looks really fun. I thought the AI looked pretty daft too though, and it's funny how they keep talking about how much they improved it over the first game.

Age of exclusives is dead. Its still nice to have system specific games but yea no point for third parties to keep a game on one system.
Commented on 2009-06-04 19:26:05
What I love most about this E3 is that it put to rest the myth that the 360 was tapped out and wouldn't improve( I'm lookin' at you Sony Fanboys) graphically. I am truly excited to see where everything goes from here...
Commented on 2009-06-04 21:44:59
The game's looking pretty damn fun actually!

But, the thing that killed the first game for me was the lack of any interesting interiours and incredibly bland urban environments. Mercenaries also suffers from this, ijust kills the immersion.

Let's hope this sequel get's that aspect right as well!

because many of the exclusives people are saying sony are loosing were only exclusive because in the previous generation there wasn't really any other console to put their gmaes on, so I'm basically I'm saying that people need to understand this and realise that there isn't much sony can do about it. some exclusives in previous gen that went multi-platform are DMC, GTA,Resident Evil and so on.

very impressive..a lot of nice enhancements over the first - especially with how flexable he is in the action. But lets be honest.. that is never in a million years "state of the art AI", the AI is one place where i cant see any improvement over the first game - they still just stand there as cannon fodder, offering little reaction. Thats a shame.
