An open-world sandbox game, JC 2 takes place in the beautiful fictional island of Panau in Southeast Asia. Just Cause 2 is wonderfully ridiculous in the possible best way. Within the space of a few moments, you can get on to a hovering helicopter, or could beat up the pilot and hijack the chopper. You may also blow up a cluster of fuel tanks and watch the resulting explosion as you parachute down over a moving motorcycle below. Enormous, varied island to explore with lots of things to do. More than 100 vehicles to drive and pilot, you can pull off all sorts of crazy stunts. Blowing up stuff can be a whole lot of fun and the visuals are absolutely fantastic.
#6 Assassin's Creed 2
Assassin's Creed II carries on the tradition and culture beautifully, inspiring you to rethink the conspiracy at the heart of the series--and to reconsider what you should be expecting from a sequel. The franchise's second outing is an impressive piece of work and a huge improvement on its predecessor. A greater variety of missions, weapons, and stealth techniques compared to the original make your experience worthwhile. The game also has a great set of controls making it easier to find your way through the open world non-linear gameplay. The Ubisoft always online DRM isn't a pleasant experience.
#5 Bioshock 2
BioShock 2's rapture is just as haunting and atmospheric the second time around, although the sunken tomb of rapture has been lost under much of the mystery that made it so much memorable. Things might seem a bit too familiar for fans of the original, and the story that accompanies your journey is not as impressive or shocking as the original one, but nonetheless Bioshock 2 is an impressive game. It has an expanded set of moral quandaries which takes the immersion to a while new level. The improved combat mechanics makes it fun, the game also has an engaging multi-player mode which some of you might fancy.
