Loving the demo, but I won't have time for a while. Will pick it up when a - I have time, and B - price drops.

Won't buy it for now ... Demo is broken for me. Time to do some troubleshooting : I get a black screen and 'application stop responding'. Call it a false start.

I need something new to play. This scratches a lot of itches for me. I'll have my copy later today.

No I won't be buying Just cause 2. I have grown tired of things like Steam which bind my games to an account . I miss the days where I could just run a game and not have anything else open. Steamworks is a no go for me now.

Well, better enjoy it while it lasts. Most games these days are tied to some sort of online community. IMHO, Steam is great for playing with your friends. It's really easy to see what they are playing and invite them to your game.

imo the series is overhyped, first one was a forgettable game, not bad, but forgettable. Not even sure why it warranted a sequel. But its just not on the radar to buy.

I'm sort of surprised at the poll results. I've put probably 5 hours into the demo. I have never seen a demo that had that much replay value. Not saying there isn't one, but it's certainly a rarity.

It's fun as shit to just think of some wild way to blow something up and the graphics engine constantly impresses. I do agree that the controls can be a bit overwhelming at first on a keyboard.

I'd like to hear from someone that has put substantially more time into the full version say it's still fun after 30+ hours. Then I'll buy it.

The full game is really awesome. If you're a fan of GTA and Mercenaries type games at all, you want to be all over this. Gorgeous, huge, fun to play, tons of things to do.

I know it is a depressing trend. Luckily I have close to or over 100 games to beat right now and a wishlist of 136 games that don't require me to play through Steam, GFWL, or activate online.

Now to wait about an hour for it to download.

I haven't had this much fun playing a game in years. JC2 is easily the the best expenditure of $45 I've made thus far on gaming...I never thought I'd say that after buying Fallout 3 awhile back.

It doesn't try to weigh itself down with reality, but looks, feels, and runs great. It has most of the beauty of Crysis, but it actually has the fun and humor to back it up. B-style movie writing is hilarious.

i really liked the first one. then again i never played GTA past 1 and 2 the top down view ones. the first one pretty easy so always just went out of my way to most over the top method of completing most missions. i had hours and hours of fun just screwing around.

JC2 is basically the same game with a ton of new tricks and destructible environments. i will get it when i need a new game.

I'll wait until it's $10. I paid $10 for Red Faction Guerilla and feel like that's a more enjoyable game though I like the setting of JC2 better.

Got it from Gamefly a few days ago on 360......one of the BEST if not the BEST sand box games I have ever played. Including RFG, GTA 3-4, Mercenaries 1 and 2. Might go to the gamefly website and hit keep. Dont know if I will get it for my pc, sofa and this feels too good. Have had sessions that have cause the wife to say...."umm i thought you were supposed to quit an hour ago".... I keep having those I wonder if i tried this moment. The engine they built for this game is absolutely insane and pretty dam good.

It's tough to not repeatedly blow up one's base with no backlash... sh-sh-shink, sh-shink.

I think the best part was driving a big armored hog into the town of Dust city hall with the M.O.A.B. on it. From impact and just blowing it up, boom, high importance target gone. Well actually the best part was going to get the nanoforge and living, first time.

I bought it on steam right after I watched the video reviews from gametrailers, ign, and gamespot. The game looked too damn fun to wait for a steam sale.

All I do is fire this up and just lose myself and turn around and 1-2 hours are gone in a flash. Great game!

I know, right? I haven't purchased the full game yet but every time I played the demo I'd find myself saying "Damn, only 5 minutes left already?!?" I couldn't believe how quickly a half hour would pass when I was just driving/flying around goofing off and blowing stuff up.

This game is incredible. It is remarkably well polished (there are a few bugs, but considering the scale of the game it hardly matters) and most importantly TONS OF FUN TO PLAY. The map is fucking enormous, probably the biggest map in a game ever, with tons of terrain change and gorgeous tropical eye candy to boot. Even in the fighter planes, traversing from one end to the other takes quite a few minutes.

Oh and there are tons and tons of easter eggs in the game. Hell, the entire northwest island is the LOST island, plane crash and all! They really nailed it, too-when you fly over the island, you instantly get shot down, leaving you stranded in the middle of nowhere :D

Most fun I've had in a sandbox type game, even more so than Saints Row 2 co-op. What makes the game for me, is double hooking things and abuse the physics.

Same here. I loved Saints Row 2 once they patched it up, I like Red Faction Guerilla a lot, but this somehow has a bit of the best of both of those and it's own twists on things.

This is a hell of a great game IMO.

I've actually gone thru the demo 4 or 5 times given the 30 minute time limit. It is a tempting play

Just ordered the PS3 version. Hopefully it doesn't have the same awful design flaw that RF:G had, namely that if you piss on a tree all the enemies on the map swarm you within 10s.

Well, I have been playing this for the last couple of days and although in between missions there is quite a bit of just keep busy work, its still fun stealing cars and blowing shit up. So far I wouldnt say its great, but its not boring. Plus, the graphics look very nice.

Voted yes. I played fifteen minutes of the demo at a friend's place on his 5850. That was enough.

Already bought ... 14 hours in and I've still barely even touched the story ... there's just too much stuff to do in this game. I think I'm going to go for 100%...

Anyone else playing the full game having the occasional freeze/crash happening to them?

I had quite a bit of fun on the demo, but most likely I'll wait for a sale on this. I'll purchase it for around $20, but not $50.
