A wonderful world of hackneyed characters and buggy scripting...
10 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In an island paradise archipelago full of brightly colored flora, vivacious inhabitants, countless villages, and even more vehicles to chose from than Burt Reynolds has wigs... this is the world of Just Cause.

You are placed in the footsteps of an agent working to overthrow a dictator in a fictional Latin country. Sounds good right? Not really...

The cast has about as much character depth as an Extra in a Paulie Shore film.

The game scripting is very buggy. Aiming is extremely difficult. The enemies can take a ridiculously large amount of bullets to the chest before they die. (example given- sniping a Boss character in the back, neck, etc takes health down but isn't an instant kill... the game is very arcade). The poor design allows AI that is so bad that, if you stand in the middle of an airport, you hear "Boom, boom, bang, boom" as the computer is much too stupid to fly, or land, any planes or helicopters- they just crash and immediately respawn above your head.

The game plot is far from linear (neither good nor bad) but at times it can be hard to remember why you are fighting in the first place- oh wait, you're an agent and its cool. That's right. That's why you are fighting. (Seriously, this is why you are set out on a slaughter campaign to liberate a country- because you're wearing black and have a gun, guess its your job *shrug*).

The plot is pretty much nonexistent.

Overall, the scenery is pretty. If you want to explore miles and miles of ocean and tropical paradise and see local villages with people harking their wares and gangs killing each other, this is the game for you. If you like to be entertained with good gameplay, a story, or anything resemblant of character development... this isn't for you.

This is a Grand Theft Auto clone containing both "theft" and "auto", but it is very far from "grand."
