    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.

    I think people are confused about what this game is supposed to be, which is why the score is below 90.

    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.

But after they actually finish it. Action, destruction, physics are really fun. I would compare this game to the Saints Row 4. You are ovepowered hero in fun sandbox world. But... the game needs polishing. There are crazy loading, that takes minutes. (and sometimes all this loading will do is set a wehicle next to you and show a waypoints). I estimate that I spent almost half of the "play time" looking at loading screen. This has to be fixed. Then there are enemies. I wont mind their bad AI (it is sufficent for this type of a game). The problem is with their respawn, that are really annoying and non logical. You shoot the nemies, turn around and suddenly someone is shooting you in your back again. This is runing the gameplay ,because shootingenemies feels meaningless. And then are are lots of randoms small bugs (levitating npscs, etc). I can say, that when I way playing I have tremendous fun. The problem is, that the game did not let me play as much as I wanted and kept interupting with looooong looooadings. Once this is fixed, I will recomend this game. Until then I stopped playing.

    Destruction galore! that is the best part of this game. running around F'in stuff up is a lot of fun and a sight to behold. But to tell youDestruction galore! that is the best part of this game. running around F'in stuff up is a lot of fun and a sight to behold. But to tell you the truth thats it. not much else to talk about. The open world is large and beautiful but sadly repetitive. Every base is the same, every town is the same and every mission almost feel the same. You may find nothing wrong with that at first but 5-10 hours will make you want to move on. The story is cringe worthy at every turn. The main character is cool, nothing wrong but when he and other characters start to talk and play out the story. Well lets just put it this way, you'll be wishing you were deaf. It's not the voice acting it just leaves you with the thought of "Who the hell says this ****

    You will also find some bugs, but nothing game breaking, but a good bit and very easy to run in to. Also the frame rate will drop a good bit when things get crazy.

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
