I grabbed the Just Cause 2 demo, and boy is it AWESOME. You get to fly around with a sweet, sweet parachute and fly around with a grappling hook, grabbing any vehicle or surface you want to cling to. The whole thing is an incredible testament to how awesome explosions are, especially when you’ve just jumped out of a helicopter and sent it careening into a huge statue.
The scope of this demo is also huge, spanning 35 square miles. I’ve never SEEN a demo that gives you that much freedom. It lets you play in 30 minute spurts, and I think this is plenty of time to figure out the controls. If you like blowing stuff up, this demo will eat up a hefty amount of your time.
When this game comes out, I’m grabbing it.
Well, not yet.
I’m still broke.
