Why was the original game rated m and why do you think this one is m also?

It couldn't be rated T. There was too much blood, and you could kill innocent people. Not to mention the property destruction. I do think the game could have passed for an M in Australia instead of an MA15+ if it was appealed, because the game wasn't anywhere near as bad as GTA, but what's done is done.

And JC2 looks to recieve an M rating because of the new (much improved physics) and brand new ways to kill people. Also, because of the blood and innocent people, that pretty much seals the deal.

Is the innocent-people-killing confirmed? I personally dont want a terrible dissapointment such as I had with Mercenaries 2. I will forever remember those damn immortal civilians getting up again and again after all kind of attacks including an antibunker nuke. I cursed EA for that

I honestly think that Just Cause 1
could've received a "Teen" rating
because it looked so fake on the
graphics and blood and the drugs
but since the new Just Cause has
better details and it looks more
realistic maybe it would deserve a
"Mature" rating :) but it doesn't matter
I'm not fighting for JC1 to be "Teen" but
that's my opinion it doesn't really matter;)

The reason people worry about ratings is because the rating can condition the game content, more than the content determining the rating. I can only cry when I remember what they've done to MKvsDC because they wanted to sell more, they wanted a teen rating and that went into censored lame fatalityes (plus many other issues).
Just imagine this game sufferded the same fate, then you would have immortal civilians, no blood and a black screen when you shoot at someone plus a message that would say "He's KO, he has been sent to the hospital and will be ok tomorrow". HEROIC BRUTALITY!

Well you do jobs for one gang, their colour is yellow, and they're a drug related gang at war with the purple drug gang.

thanks. I'm glad that someone else feels my pain. Mercs 2 would have been so much better if it was rated M.

Yes, we all who enjoyed the first part share that pain. The promise of absolute destrution went to hell. Why would I want to nuke an entire city only to see later that everybody survived? Damn those buildings and my bombs are toys! And even surviving the damned "injured" costed money!!!

Just Cause 2 ESRB for your enjoyment.

Rating: Mature

Content descriptors: Blood, Drug Reference, Language, Sexual Themes, Violence

Rating summary:

This is an "open-world' action game in which players assume the role of a US operative (Rico) who investigates the disappearance of an agent in a Southeast Asian island country. Players' objective is to de-stabilize the island government by performing various missions: assassination, demolition, "Stronghold takeovers," the rescue of hostages, etc. Players mostly use machine guns, sniper rifles, and explosives to kill enemy soldiers; players can use a grappling hook to scale tall buildings, zip between moving vehicles, or grapple enemies to vehicles and structures. Blood often spurts out of injured characters and stains the ground and walls. Bodies also react to postmortem damage, flailing (i.e., rag-doll physics) and emitting blood long after death. Within the free-roaming context (i.e., not missions), players have the ability to kill island citizens (never children); however, a "Heat Meter"-penalty system discourages these acts by attracting government agents and the local militia. During the course of the game, players may be required to transport a female escort to various locations or to visit a brothel called the "Mile High Club." The dialogue contains mild sexual innuendo (e.g., "[he] was swapping bodily fluids with a well known general"), as well as more direct references (e.g., "well renowned for his excessive and deviant sexual habits," "Mile High Club . . . so many sexual memories," and "To the guards you are just another whore hound!"). The game contains several missions involving drugs: Players must secure drug lines, find hidden drug cases to increase their "Faction meter," and transport drugs via trucks and helicopters. Although there are never any visual depictions of drugs (they are mostly just in cases and crates), the game contains several references to cocaine, amphetamines, heroine, and opium. The dialogue contains profanity—both in English (e.g., "*****" and "a*shole") and Spanish (e.g., "ch*nga," and "m*erda").
