    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.

    Excellent game, especially at the price. A very worthy sequel to Just Cause 2. Map is huge and varied. Plenty of different vehicles too. InExcellent game, especially at the price. A very worthy sequel to Just Cause 2. Map is huge and varied. Plenty of different vehicles too. In game physics are excellent. Graphics are quite good (ultra setting). The game performance is smooth and loading times are minimal. The game does crash sometimes but hopefully this will be sorted out very soon. Expand

    First I had a problem with AMD graphical card where textures where only loading as some triangles, but after switching to the beta driverFirst I had a problem with AMD graphical card where textures where only loading as some triangles, but after switching to the beta driver ''Radeon-Software-Crimson-Edition-15.11.1-Beta-64Bit-Win10-Win8.1-Win7-Nov30" all worked silky smooth and I had a lot of fun so far. Loading times for missions might be on the long side, but once you are in the vast world I can only say that there is a lot of fun.
    The game for me is a good way to releave stress with just toughtless bombing and tethering people into exploding goodness!

    For 3$ on sale, I'm not sure if I could complain about a repetitive and boring open world shooter with nothing to offer but nonstopFor 3$ on sale, I'm not sure if I could complain about a repetitive and boring open world shooter with nothing to offer but nonstop explosions, ridiculously bad driving controls and bland gunplay. But hey, it's still fun because it's cheap, just enjoy the mayhem that this franchise proudly markets itself with. Expand

    I pre-purchased the game with dlc from steam, and now i regret it.

    I pre-purchased the game with dlc from steam, and now i regret it.
    The game is a crap - in the first mission itself one can find out that - you are visiting an area and tasked to destroy a few things that's it. All is focused on explosions, almost no story line. The worst part, Long Loading Times -

    Also not to forget the fps issue, even with JC3.

    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?
