So this game has now annoyed me... I put it on hard mode when I started as usually console ports are too easy with mouse aim.

Come to find out that hard mode is annoyingly hard, as they simply throw endless enemies at you and the game is designed around a ludicrous amount of auto-aim used with the gamepad which is not present with a mouse.

So I'm like "ok, no big, I'll put it on normal." Come to find out... you cannot change the difficulty after starting.

This means I either start over and lose 5 hours of progress or I continue to deal with the annoying difficulty, which is a choice between two devils and it makes me not want to play the game at all.

Thanks Just Cause 2!

Use a trainer. That sucks you cant change difficulty mid game.

I'm just using my 360 pad for the game now... much easier to play it that way and the vehicle controls are better.

I cant say I like the actual "game". I decided to pickup a trainer for inf health and blow the crap out of everything in the game. The story and how its executed through poor looking character models and the worst voice acting/script since 1999 gaming makes it forgetable, and I simply use it to get from one mission to the next, blowing everything up. The graphics are pretty amazing, the clearly defined lights from cities that are a hundred miles away is amazing. Heli's are pretty slow but they are faster then driving and can offer up some great damage of their own. Also the atmospheric conditions like the clouds are great. Theres some amazing artistry here that keeps a high level of detail going on distant objects even though you know they have been turned into really simple geometry. And at the same time picking up a land vehicle looks as good as any racing game, its to bad vehicle control realism took a back seat for the sake of keeping the action flowing.

This will be a great game to pickup for eye candy and testing your system when it hits the bargain bin, but I wouldnt pick it up at full price.

16hr in and I can't stop.
There is too much to do in this game. It's like a cross between GTA4, BF2, Crysis, Bionic Commander and some crappy 3rd person console shooter port.
Racing planes, boats, cars and bikes. I found some giant base tonight that I took down took an hour, I finally found some jets and OMG are they fast.
