LOST island hidden in Just Cause 2

Are you rooting for Jack or Sawyer? Team Jacob or Team Locke? Prophet Hurley or Zombie Sayid? Flashbacks, flash forwards or flash sideways? Do you have any idea what the hell I'm talking about?

If so, you're clearly still a LOST fan, and if so, you now have a reason to pick up the recently released Just Cause 2. Plenty of developers sprinkle their games with subtle references to movies, books, comics and TV shows, but the creators of Just Cause 2 have really raised the bar. As the video below shows, they've included not just the LOST numbers, not just a couple lines of LOST trivia, but the whole damn LOST island. (Keep scrolling for screen-by-screen highlights and a map of where to find the island for yourself.)

Video from YouTube user Cyborgmatt


Above: A mysteriously isolated island on the Just Cause 2 map. Why not fly over and see what happens? What could possibly go wrong?


Above: Oh, right. THAT. From what I've read, flying over this area in any plane - even the fastest and strongest - will result in an automatic crash.


Above: No point in including a cool LOST reference if no one ever finds it. Also, check out the wreckage next to the beach... Oceanic 815?


Above: Gamers report that when they visit the LOST island in Just Cause 2, the sky immediately darkens and turns to rain. Some even claim they can hear Smoke Monster sound effects while running through the jungle.


Above: And there she is. A little rounder than I remember from the show - and you can only get inside with a PC hack - but pretty damn awesome nonetheless.

    to respond to lymanzaar there is a small LOST reference. In megaton if you talk to maggie with the child at heart perk and ask her if she has any secrets she says billy creel has a safe in the floor of his house and the combo is 15-16-23-42... 4 of 6 of Hhurley's numbers.

    The best easter egg to me was in The Summoner, with The Summoner Geeks. After you beat the game, you got CGI clip of the Dead Alewives' Dungeons & Dragons sketch. Watch the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zng5kRle4FA

    the island of lost is actually controlled too. on the series is controlled by ben, lock, and jacob and that's why it isn't sutprising to see a military base up on the hill... though on the tv series a rich guy wants the island :O

    I wouldn't be surprised if you could find the whole LOST cast too.

    Is it kinda sad I want to buy this now; especially since Walmart has it on special? If only there was some kind of site with a review I could peruse...

    I know NOTHING about the TV show Lost (never got into the series...) but this actually sounds ****ing awesome! Wish more games would do things like this.
  • GamesRadarCharlieBarratt - March 25, 2010 12:21 a.m.

    @beezn Nah. As zabu_san pointed out, it's music the video's creator took from the show.
  • McSpermie - March 24, 2010 11:38 p.m.

    amazing I am getting this game, I love Lost.
  • beezn - March 24, 2010 11:34 p.m.

    If that music is in-game I'll lose my shit.
