    Just Cause 3 stands for freedom and fun. Every gameplay element is working towards one and the same goal: doing whatever you feel like. Just Cause 3 is simply a game you must play, it would surprise us if you wouldn't like it.

    Just Cause 3 is a chaotic, over the top action game where a simple grenade could level an entire military base from the domino effect alone. It is a beautiful action movie in video game form, with a cool protagonist and an incredible attention to detail.

    Just Cause 3 delivers what it does best: chaos and destruction. Though the world and gameplay feel monotonous at times, the wingsuit and other new additions are fun. But still no multiplayer, really?!

    Just Cause 3 is a monument to excess. It’s Hot Shots. It’s Charlie Chaplin in The Dictator, if Charlie Chaplin had rocket-powered C4 in his boots. It’s that scene in Dr. Strangelove where Slim Pickens rides the nuke into Russia, except...well, no, it’s pretty much exactly that scene on repeat for 25-30 hours.

    Just Cause 3 has two souls: one is pure, untarnished and ridiculous fun, the other is pretty raw, unpolished and repetitive. If you like blowing stuff up, launching rocket cows into space, or simply chaos, this game is definitely a dream come true. Just don’t expect an action masterpiece.

    Just Cause 3 is a sandbox game that works only if you create your own experience. But if you play it in a straight way, it shows only limitations (and some technical issues that we hope Avalanche will fix soon).

    Gliding over Medici’s beautiful vistas and causing those awesome explosions are the only fun things in a soulless product known as Just Cause 3. But then again, you can just gaze at screenshots while listening to the game’s soundtrack.

Amazing.One of the best game i played since long time. Who cares about the plot. I'm full of all that games that want to give an amazing plot when probably best part of the players even care. this, is a game.you can do everything you want. he is an old style hero, a real one. some good joke while i shot with my bazooka, cool attitude, superstrong, unbeatable. Big map, lot of thing to do. The MOD system is cool.
    Now the part about the graphic:
    Yes there are problem on PC version. I have an i5-4670k 3.40ghz, 8gb ram,geforceGTX 760, and it give me some problem, mostly when i turn on myself very fast, and there is some "lag", but all that kids who say that is worst that BATMAN are real morons. you can play any way. probably in 2/3 weeks we will have the patch, so be patient. i cant stay here and read some stupid newbie who say "is possible that for everygame that come out we need a patch?". yes is possible, you konw howw difficult is to make a triple A game in this period? shut the **** up and go to work or play something else. you are not playing supremario bros, this are amsterpieces idiot, id like to see you do anything like. this.

    Just Cause 3 is the god of Just Cause. It brings back the old concept of a insane man with guns and a parachute flying around but the wingsuitJust Cause 3 is the god of Just Cause. It brings back the old concept of a insane man with guns and a parachute flying around but the wingsuit makes the chaos more fun and trickier to get shots on enemies. The map is bigger than Just Cause 2 and the story is much more fun and chaotic than the last story. Rico comes back with new guns and even more vehicles that stand out from the rest. The idea of taking over the Medici kind of reflects of the Far Cry 3 concept of tyranny and control over the lands. The controls are confusing at first since I went from the middle of JC2 to JC3 and I was not used to the controls. The music is decent but the graphics make it shining like a diamond. Always recommend it. Expand

    What's the point to use crap DRM like Denuvo to improve initial sales, when you need to wait weeks to fix all the bugs ?
    The crack will be out soon and we legit buyers will need to wait more for a patch to fix all the fps loss, bugs, glitch, ecc.
    My personal suggestion : stay away from this crap till the fix all, and wait for a discount, atm is only a boring piece of buggy beta.

    Blowing up fuel tanks is fun, but that fun quickly turns into tedium as you find yourself confronting more and more difficult, tediousBlowing up fuel tanks is fun, but that fun quickly turns into tedium as you find yourself confronting more and more difficult, tedious enemies. Want an edge against those enemies? You'd better be ready for some tedious challenges, which wouldn't be a problem if the driving and wingsuit controls weren't completely horrendous. I want to know who thought that people wanted to fly through rings and practice "jihad-jeeping" for 20 hours straight just to get extra slots for "beacon" tokens, which are now the only way to get supply drops...

    The story takes literally two hours to complete unless you have the IQ of a peanut, enemy AI has one mode - "bum rush", and SAM site overuse completely ruins aircraft in the game. You WILL not be able to use a jet or helicopter to take down a base. At all. It must all be done on foot, all without the ability to even so much as CROUCH.

    Everything that was fun and awesome about Just Cause 2 is completely MIA here. Absolutely anything fun in this game is either gated behind unfair AI, grindy minigames, or arbitrary "defense systems". Save your money and stay away from this game. It's barely worth the two hours you'll spend with it before wanting to gouge out your own eyeballs, and *definitely* not worth whatever price you'd pay for it.

    I was pretty hard to launch the game first time. It crashed few times, hung my PC few times... When I finally managed to start it - it workedI was pretty hard to launch the game first time. It crashed few times, hung my PC few times... When I finally managed to start it - it worked perfectly. But it looks like it manages to start only few times in a week. Other times it tells that I have no internet connection and freezes (my connection is perfect by the way), or just freezes on a first loading screen.
    When it works - it's a great game, really fun and perfectly optimized. But what's a point of this when I can't actually play it?
