I will post this here as well I did in console boards but the demo will be available for the PC as well!

If you’ve been turned on by the wild, crazy, and quite acrobatic action showcased in the media surrounding the upcoming Just Cause 2, you’ll probably be excited to learn that the game’s demo will officially be released for the PC on March 4.

The demo will feature 35 square miles of Lautan Lama Desert that will be packed with towns, villages, military installations, mountain ranges, missions and more to feed your need for “adrenaline-fueled chaos”… I thought that’s what Mountain Dew was for…

Here’s a (rather in-depth) description of the demo:

Hunt down and assassinate one of the game’s 50 military colonels; devastate military bases, bio fuel chambers, government infrastructure and more; hijack tuk tuks, military 4×4s, armoured vehicles, mopeds, helicopter gunships, light aircraft, mini vans and numerous other military and civilian vehicles; freefall from desert outcrops or from burning planes at 20,000 feet; and unlock one full, multi-stage mission, traversing the mountains to a heavily fortified government radar station and ending in an unforgettable desert car chase.

“The Just Cause 2 demo is simply massive and with so much to do, the replay value is enormous,” said Lee Singleton, General Manager of Square Enix London Studios. “It’s easily one of the biggest freeroaming demos of all time and for fans of openworld games, it’s unmissable.”

So, check out Steam on March 4 to try this bad boy out. Just Cause 2 is set to launch in late March.

I was surprised as well. It looks amazing. If that's what you get for coding things for DX10 and up, then I hope more will follow.

The first game looked good to IMHO. We did miss out on a free post processing effects that the 360 had, but this one we get the lot (and more). Fun game, over the top action puts some off, but if you like games like Crackdown, Prototype and San Andreas you'll love this one.

I loved that gliding in the first game. hitching a ride on a car, then a helicopter, and jut parachuting around the island.

i see one issue with the beach and water, sand doesn't apear to be wet.

sand should have different shades where water actually washed up on shore and where it doesn't

i mean they talk to much about the damn water and they didn't think of something this simple.

Well they would have if you told them nekro. It's clear you are the one to blame here.

It's a like or hate game grey. I don;t remember much about the story or missions, but the zooming bout the island was fun. At any time you can bail from a car and start para-sailing, or jump from car to car. Pretty hectic game.

First one was very clunky in it's controls, had issues with performance too.

This new one looks very interesting, if the demo's any good......

I didn't have any performance issues. Or for controls either. Then again, I had anSLI rig when I first played it...

i didn't like it, some liked it, hard to say, until you try it yourself.

It was hit or miss really. Reviews were quite good for a new title. I felt it needed to be more storyline focused, but otherwise it was fun.

Btw. the "trailer" is now on GT, in slightly higher quality - http://www.gametrailers.com/video/nvidia-mini-doc-just-cause-2/62589
