    Let’s try a metaphor and imagine games as drinks. Fallout 4 is a fine wine, aged, complex, and evolving, likely better with a bit of wait. Bloodborne is a single malt Scotch — dense, overwhelming and rarified. Destiny might be a well made cocktail — a bit trendy, probably too expensive, but eminently satisfying and possessed of a certain technical skill. Just Cause 3 is a Miller High Life. It might not tick those other boxes of quality that those other drinks manage, but damn if I’d have it any other way.

    When you’re not waiting for it to load, Just Cause 3 is an incredibly fun game. Crisp visuals and a clever soundtrack bring all the explosions to life. Even with the violence and destruction, it manages to maintain a lighter tone than the Far Cry games, without sliding into the outright silliness of Saints Row. But, it’s still silly enough.

    Just Cause 3 gets away with more stunts and high-flying hijinks that, let’s be honest, even Hollywood can’t get away with much anymore. Come for the explosions, but stay for the, well, stay for even more explosions.

    All in all, Just Cause 3 is one giant bombastic set piece that manages to be immensely enjoyable and disappointing at the same time.
  5. "I have an island and i will blow it up!" Just cause 3 is a symphony of explosions. Action scenes make you feel good but missions get repetitive after a while.

    Like me, fans of the predecessor will still enjoy playing this game, and the true sandbox nature that promotes tinkering around with nearly endless possibilities will ensure that some people will continue to play it even after the story is completed.

    Imagine a roller coaster that stops for maintenance every 30 feet and doesn't allow you to exit, even after you've already been around the track a few dozen times.

    Repetetive after a while, and it has some questionable progression unlocks. A little bit shallow too.

    But hell if I'm not having more fun than ever.

    Every day I come home and look at my PS4 game collection and think "these are all great games, but I'm feeling lazy as hell. I don't want to think, I want to RELAX."

    Enter JC3. Turn on the game, blow stuff up, cry laughing at the awesome freedom afforded to you.

    Thanks Avalanche. You know what you are good at and don't pretend to make this game something it isn't. It's good, stupid fun. And I've been waiting for this since JC2.

    Repetitive mission design and lacks an engaging story, but who cares!!

    This is the perfect game to disable your higher brain function and just have a blast playing. Reminiscent of the last-gen titles Prototype 2 and Saints Row 4, just roaming the landscape causing havoc everywhere you please is a blast. The wingsuit is by far one of the best new gear additions and makes movement throughout the game not a chore, but something to look forward to. A great getaway at the end of a long day.

I'm not saying the explosions and booster explosives aren't super fun to watch, but that's the extent of what's offered here. The side missions are boring, the main character is like a blank sheet. Occasionally they throw a gob of ink on there, only to rub it off with white-out. Some other characters like Dimas are pretty good, but Just Cause 3 lacks good characters. This game encourages me to be creative. In my face, it tells me it will reward me for being creative. And while ten automatic weapons, a missile launcher, and three snipers are shooting at me I'll plant a super intricate chain reaction and be 'creative.' Basically the game consists of main quests, side quests, and taking bases. You'll need to take bases to advance the story. The first couple of bases are awesome as you goggle at the explosions and watch your explosives go to work, but then it becomes repetitive as being creative is impossible as the super aggressive AI works all too well on you. There will be red screens. There will be grinding. All I ever used was a RPG, and occasionally the plantable explosives on big objects. But over all of this, the idea of how you take bases is absolutely ridiculous. Blow the crap out of everything and then the dictator loses the place. What? How does that help the resource starved rebels? Now onto the best parts of the game. The graphics are phenomenal. I've never felt more in paradise in a video game. The explosion effects are awesome too, with pieces of metal flying through the air, and crushing Di Ravello's puny militia troops. I've never had more fun strapping explosives that push things(booster explosives) onto cows and watching them fly through the air in awe. It almost brought tears to my ash caked eyes. The game is extra fun when you're just jacking around, blowing up cars and cows, and testing how far you can free fall. Also, travelling with the combination of wingsuit, grapple, and parachute makes long distances a 'distant' memory.
    Overall, Just Cause 3 is great for what it is, but it lacks anything else. If you love explosions, strap right in to your car coated in plastic explosive, and enjoy blowing everything to pieces.

    Was ok, I had a better gameplay exp in just cause 2 than 3. everything feels the same. few things added, the rest is copy/paste.

    Main story is just not good enough, but aside that enough things to do and to blow up. A good sand box game but maybe it's time to come with something else.

Horrible controls which you can't change, horrible vehicle physics (seriously, those morons responsible for this abomination have ever played a decent game before they started blindly smashing their keyboards in desperate attempts to code something???), glitched challenges and challenges themselves!!! Oh my god... Avalanche monkeys, I'm talking to you - yoг must pay people who had unfortunately played your "game". This is the worst thing I have ever wasted money on! Play some Saints Row and finally figure out what FUN is and how transport works in video games!!! Expand
