Just Cause 2 review embargo lifts, we round ‘em up

Tuesday, 23rd March 2010 17:14 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


The review embargo for Just Cause 2 has lifted and the results are starting to trickle-in.

General consensus? Rather good.

As a matter of fact, it seems as though Avalanche has put out a game that looks up at you with its large puppy dog eyes and says: “Please take me home. I am a really good boy”.

We will update the list as more reviews are published.

Game’s out in the US today, and this Friday in the UK.

    Looks like a great buy, For me, I do care about reviews for 80% of my game collection. for that 80% 7+ is a good game :) this seems to be 8s :)

    I was very impressed by the demo. It was fun but the controls will take some time getting use to. I wish there was a custom setting option for the controls

    lol @ MTV’s “score”.

    Tbh, I’m a little surprised to see so many eights. It felt more like a seven out of ten when I played the demo. Good for Avalanche Studios, though. :)

    Very good scores, although I didn’t quite feel the demo like I thought I would. I think I’ll give it another go.
