Another demo is out for the 360 owners to try out. About a month from today, the game will be released. Eidos hopes it can make you fall in love with this demo.

The open ended GTA-esq style of Just Cause might just be a winner. Can't wait to get home.

"Just Cause" for the PC and 360.

If I had to characterize this game, I would have to bring up quite a few different games. Hitman, Grand Theft Auto, and Mercenaries all rolled up into 1 game based on a CIA hitman out for "Regime Change":lol:

After playing for a little while on the Demo I have to say that this game looks like its going to have alot of fun missions. This is definatly not your average shooter(neither was Hitman though), and the only flaw Ive really seen so far is "The Terminator factor". You know what I mean if you have played Mercenaries, your a virtual walking tank. However, there is so many enemies firing bullets and explosives at you that it wouldnt be fun if you had as much life as in a Tom Clancy game or SOCOM. Im sure they are going to add in some difficulty settings for when the game is ready to launch.

I recomend this demo for anyone looking for a fun, action-packed shooter. They may have stolen some ideas like carjacking(been stolen before anyways), but there is a ton of unique content in this game.

The full game is due to launch this fall.

This game is awesome! I plan to buy it in September when it's released. It's georgeous, fun, and is open ended. Think GTA + Mercenaries + Farcry + Some sort of James Bond. I love it. Go get the demo now, PC or 360!

Yea I knew of this game like half a year before it was pictures and videos I got some exclusive shots since a person on my mod team actually worked for them and from there on I was impressed.

He now works on killzone for ps3 :D

Sorry double posted I just played PC demo. Its not bad at all big problem with pc version is controls if they are not fixed for release then this should be a console only game imo.

The thing I noticed about the control issue, when you fire at enemies try not to use short clicks with your mouse. Instead, try holding down the fire button (even when using your silverballers). I think there needs to be a bit more responsivness as well, but I wasnt havning issues getting quick kills once I stopped trying to fire like you do in Hitman.

Did you parachute onto your first mark's vehichle? I tried it about 3 times and the best I did was landing on the little jeep behind him :lol:

Luckily those jeeps come equiped with a .50 machine gun and I quickly disposed of the mark:woot:

I landed on the jeep in front of him, then tried to run him off the road (failed at doing so). Followed him back to his base and killed him and 15 of his closest buddies.

:tantrum:

How can you leave hitman out of it! Bah and it uses a tweaked version of the Hitman engine!

One thing I have to say that keeps me smiling when playing this demo(apart from using grenades!) is the background music :lol:.

The music was the thing I think I hated the most. :lol:

anyone else download the Demo yet? i did a couple hours ago and wow i'm impressed. for those who don't know the game is like GTA on steroids in a beautiful (and i mean beautiful) tropical island setting . i'd post some pics, but you'd really have to see it in motion to really appreciate just how amazing this game looks.

Freefall about 20-30 feet up and it will go into a cut scene of landing on the vechicle.
