Just Cause is a franchise started in 2006, with the release of Just Cause under the Eidos development team. The game series has a major emphasis on liberation. Both games place you in the shoes of Agency operative Rico Rodriguez. The games place you in a large area of fictional islands, and supply you with many reasons to blow things up and produce anarchy in the nation given. The games are both based on the premise of overthrowing a power-hungry leader and saving an island nation from the government. Both games also include a grappling hook and parachute to allow you to traverse the large landforms quickly.

Giant Bomb Review: (Ryan Davis)

Just Cause 2 was released in March of 2010, and features more of an emphasis on Chaos than the original game, which did not include such a feature to begin with. Rico is working against Baby Panay, the leader of an Asian island called Panau. Baby Panay is meant to have assassinated his father, and has taken hostile control of the island. However, with the improved grappling hook and additional factions, Just Cause 2's aim is simple: to remove Panay from power. Permanently.
