Just Cause 3 - Destruction Dev Diary
Jan 19, 2016Just 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.
Dec 2, 2015Just 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.

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.… Expand

The glitches thus far haven't been game-breaking in my experience and I think they'll work them out soon. And it certainly doesn't detract from the unadulterated chaos and mayhem that I've found so enjoyable so far.

Just Cause 3 is a third person action game where you’re given a large area map for destruction. Set in the fictitious nation of Medici, you must topple General Sebastiano Di Ravello tyrannical rain though destroying his infrastructure and completing missions. A sequel to JC2, this game doesn’t feel like an evolution or revolution. It feels like more of the same with something added here and taken away there.
I had no issues with getting between 50 to 60 FPS most of the time. The slight dips from time to time didn’t take away from my immersion. While everything looks as it should, nothing really WOWed me except the explosions and destruction. When taking down a large antenna structure while underneath it, the sense of exhalation was great as it toppled around me. When things went boom, it did so with great particle effects and debris. However, after a few hours and a bunch of towns and military bases under my belt, the novelty wore off and I was less impressed. Other toted effects were less impressive. Dandelions do flatten while driving over them; I fail to see how this is supposed to improve my experience.
I was pleasantly surprised that the story was passable this time compared to JC2. Perhaps my expectations were so low that I wouldn’t be hard to beat them. While campy throughout, it did have some interesting insights to the character’s past and their prior relationships. These moments are rare and never more than one offs, quickly deviating back to the mission at hand. Voice and dialog are b-movie quality but good b-movie. The story did rush though all points far too quickly and have a very unsatisfying ending, as if to say “that’s enough story, here’s the end”. Could be finished in about 5 hours, maybe less if you rushed.
The gimmick here is the destruction that was well showcased in JC2. Towns, outposts, and military bases can be liberated by blowing up everything marked in red. While cool at first, Towns and outposts are mostly copy and paste leaving a very repetitive feel to them. Military bases are more varied but suffer the same monotonous feeling after 6 hours. The campaign does give some unique situations and motivation but was far too short to sustain me for the long run.
The improvements to the zip line and the inclusion of the wing suit are nice but didn’t improve the experience much for me. Using zip line to pull down chaos objects is fun but uneven. Upgrades are required to get more functionality out of this and after a while felt like a novelty. The wingsuit was a nice inclusion for nothing more than a quicker way to move around. The unlimited parachute feels sluggish compared to the prior game, encouraging the use of the wing suit.
Non-explosive weaponry are mostly useless. You got a handful of rifles, handguns, SMGs, and shotguns. All felt very weak and underwhelming. As far as special explosive weapons go, you got more options but didn’t really entice me that much.
Upgrades are given by completing boring, repetitive side missions that earn you gears in different categories depending on the mission. These are a slog to go through and have very little fun value. Upgrades are often standard fare but most unique upgrades are useless. Certain upgrades like zoom in aiming and landing while using the wingsuit should have been standard features. Locking these things to pad the upgrade list is disappointing.
The map is big but less impressive. It feels like a lot more empty space between towns and outposts than before and nothing to do outside these areas. You can find a few collectables but beyond that, its wasted space used for races trigged by side mission. Gas stations are now reloaded after destroying and bridges can be blown up now but both offer little strategic value outside of missions.
Cars and planes handle far worse than the previous game. Tanks and helicopters are about the same but are very week and get destroyed easily. Ground play is worse with little in the way of protecting yourself in a firefight. Developers stated that cover wasn’t implemented to encourage use of the parachute as a form of cover. It works, but it didn’t feel fun slowly hovering over my enemies as I popped them off. Dodging was removed along with the mini map. Xbox One controller felt sluggish with aiming and was always imprecise.
Your value on this is how much you can stand repetitive tasks. Towns and outpost all feel, look and play the same way with very little originality. I never got a sense of accomplishment when liberating areas around Medici. Just felt like I was checking off the list. Fighting as a shooter feels half-baked and was tighter in JC2. Explosions and destruction are better this time around but this is the same game we played before. I was expecting more this time around.… Expand
