Tag / Just Cause
Just Cause is an action-adventure video game set in an open world environment. It is developed by Swedish developer Avalanche Studios and published by Eidos Interactive, and is the first game in the Just Cause series. It was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 2, Xbox and Xbox 360. The area explored during the game is described as being over 250,000 acres (1,012 km2; 391 sq mi) in size, with 21 story missions and over 300 side missions to complete.
Just Cause was the secondary game that we were playing during Extra Life 2015. 23 days later I finally completed all achievements. I still can't believe that this game is 9 years old. Sure it might not be super polished, but it looks and feels great. The limited character animations and vehicles can be overlooked since it was made for older generation consoles. Apparently the game was riddled with bugs but the only ones that I ever encountered were over-powered Tanks (bane of my existence when trying to liberate military bases), and the fact that by the end "my" side would start attacking me from the start of the liberation without ever attacking them first. This made it incredibly hard to complete some of the areas as everyone was out to kill me and not just the government and cartels. Also it suffered from some fairly unrealistic "lets drive a car up the side of a mountain" bugs, which I'll exploit with glee any day.
