If you want lots and lots of ridiculous action, involving explosions, gunfights, throwing yourself off cliff faces only to parachute to saftey, jumping across car rooftops, and escaping from the local armed forces, then Just Cause 2 is the game for you.
You can grab a copy on the Xbox 360 for £19.85 from Simply Games, which'll save you just over £5 on the next best deal of £24.93 coming in from The Hut.
The island of Panau is huge and you'll find a number of way to navigate around its vast area, including planes, helicopters, cars, and of course free-falling from cliff tops! There's also an equally impressive amount of things to do, other than bringing a blend of chaos and destruction to the villages and towns people that are littered about the environment. On foot Rico's pretty sprightly and anything that's out of reach can be manipulated by his grappling hooks, which also allow you to reach high spots or tie enemies to exploding barrels.
Sadly, the combat is incredibly disappointing as there's no covering system, so you'll only be able to avoid hostile bullets by jumping directly behind a car that's been abandoned by its occupants or diving around the wall of a nearby building. Also, your weapons seem to be as effective as low powered BB guns, as you'll have to pump round after round into an assailant in order to cause their demise, even if you're standing right in front of them.
You can have a great deal of fun playing this game and there's plenty of stuff to keep you entertained throughout.
