Expanded Description Agent extraordinaire Rico Rodriguez returns for more death-defying missions against ruthless cartels and corrupt governments in this sequel to 2006's open world, third-person shooter. Instead of the Cuba-inspired island of San Esperito, Rodriguez will battle heavily armed foes in well guarded compounds scattered throughout the South East Asian islands of Panau. As in the original Just Cause, how you cross the terrain or complete mission objectives is up to you. Hitch a ride in a 4x4 to travel up a snow-capped mountain, pilot a helicopter or plane, or slip behind the wheel of a dune buggy to travel over desert regions.
One distinctive feature from the first game is back with improved play mechanics. Rodriguez can fire a grappling hook anytime and anywhere he wants, allowing him to latch onto a surface to propel him forward or to bring items (and even enemies) closer. This technique can be combined with the protagonist's parachute to glide through the air and perform elaborate combos. Rodriguez will need to rely on new stunts, vehicles, and weapons to become a one-man army in a world spanning 1,000 square kilometers in size. Just Cause 2 is Swedish developer Avalanche Studios' second game on the Xbox 360 platform.
