    Just Cause 2 does everything you wanted to do in GTA4.

    I was thinking the same thing myself. After playing JC2 and then RDR... I TAKES FOREVER getting around! Everything just seems soooo slow now. John Marston needs a grapple hook FFS!

    I personally prefer JC2, i had more fun plus i LOVE flying. I really want that JC3 has more detail into flying, like controlling flaps, roation around the horizontal plane, pulling out/in wheels, more airports, more air movement

    GTA4 is one of those Movie-games which centers on the story more than gameplay
    JC2 is a game and ONLY a game No story and mission crap

    I can just see that now:
    *John Marstin jump off horse during horse race between Bonnie McFarlane and him, and zips along to the finish line*

    BM: "You cheated! By the way, did you invent that Grappling hook? I've never seen it before in my life."

    This is a very insightful post, IMO.

    Most games these days are story-driven and trying to recreate movie-like atmospheres... But they fail epically when it comes to the actual game play. The game play is either too restricted (scripted, on rails), or there isn't enough actual game play and it's too many cut scenes because it's emphasizing story over game play.

    JC2 is a pure Gamers Game.

    Like another poster said, you feel you are in a lot more control of what is going on in JC2 as far as the actual game play mechanics go. The only time I die in JC2 is because I made a mistake and the AI overwhelmed me, or the inconsistent physics got me e.g. riding along at top speed and hit a fence post and die in a fiery crash - LOL - But even this doesn't feel cheap because that *could* happen in real life even if it shouldn't in this game

    When I sit down and play a game, I want to *play* a game. Not sit through an interactive movie like the majority of games are designed these days. This is also why I favor open-world games like JC2 where the game play is emergent and not pre-scripted in the sense you can only do what the developers want you to do because the game itself doesn't have that much going for it beyond its cinema-style presentation.

    I also grew bored of GTAIV really fast, too.

    I felt GTAIV took itself too seriously and was trying to be a "crime simulator" to appease hardcore players who wanted a realistic urban crime game like Mafia, and Hitman.

    GTA IV has it all, but Just Cause 2 has it all and even more.

    If you think about it, JC2 lacks features that GTA4 has, and GTA4 lacks features JC2 has.

    Rockstar should have released a game like jc2.


    Panou should = the Gta iv era of San Andreas.
    Just Cause 2 = modded the up version of Gta Iv

    Just cause 2 > GTA:SA > GTA 4

    GTA4 is extremely overrated imo.
