I haven't completed Just Cause, but I definitely find Mercs 2 to be a lot more fun. Graphics wise Mercs 2 is a lot more varied and it isn't blurred to hell with bloom. The character models in Mercs 2 are lightyears ahead of those in Just Cause.

Gameplay wise I definitely think Mercs 2 is better. There's more variety in vehicles and they control a bit better (they have really floaty acceleration in Just Cause but the cars in Mercs 2 feel a lot heavier), the aiming is much much better than Just Cause (although I've only tried the 360 version of Just Cause which had full auto targeting, I dunno if PC version also had that), and there's full coop support from start to finish. Coop alone makes it vastly superior.

Ok, thanks. Sounds like this could be a worthy buy if they fix the nonworking AA and sells for $30 or less.

Has Nvidia ever fixed the shadow and rendering issues with the 8800GTX and Just Cause? I really wanted to play this game but it just had too many rendering errors on my GTX.

I dont have AA either using 177.89 (i think, last on nvidia site under beta). tried in game and forced, nothing. And what is with the retarded resolutions... doesnt even support 1680x1050. Just Cause was alot better, more fun and imo looked better too.

Well, Just Cause didn't even support widescreen.

I'm a fan of Just Cause, don't get me wrong... great underrated game. It also had a lot of polish that Mercs 2 does not have. Still, Mercs 2 is MUCH more fun. It just has a ton more to do, destroy and play with.

No 1680*1050 support. Another crappy EA Games title. NEXT.
