THE GOOD: - This is the largest game in terms of map size ever created for PlayStation2...)* - A nice range of unlockable weapons and vehicles which all handle pretty well. - Interesting concept for a storyline and some great supporting characters. - Lots of action: this is basically an interactive Steven Segal film. - The re-usable parachute is just as much fun as it sounds... - Mid-air hijacking of planes and helicopters, plus hijacking cars by landing on their roofs. - Heavy Drops!
THE BAD: - *...meaning you'll get lost or spend lots of time walking rather slowly. - Graphically not so strong on textures or detail, but distance shots are nice enough, I suppose. - Dull central character. - Terrible and limited music, and the sound effects could do with a decent overhaul. - Repetative side missions.
SUMMARY: Taking a glance at the Bad column above, you might wonder why I've still given JUST CAUSE on PlayStation2 such a high score.
The answer is simple: while the game doesn't look like Miss Hawai'ia...
