    Just Cause 3 is an amazing spectacle of destruction and satisfaction.

    Those that found JC2 underwhelming or repetitive won’t find much to change their mind here, but for fans like myself that simply can’t get enough destruction, Just Cause 3 delivers on all levels.

    It’s a solid and light-hearted game that offers a sprawling open-world playground for you to explore and destroy in as many creative and humorous ways as you can imagine. There are bugs that need to be addressed, it lacks the depth of other games in its genre, and it can be repetitive over long periods of play, but in short bursts of a couple of hours or so there’s no hiding from the fact that being given the freedom to blow things up to your heart's content provides some of the most chaotic fun you’ll find on the Xbox One right now.

    Just Cause 3 can be a rather fun game, but it's not the sequel we were hoping for. There are some very impressive things to be found within its large-scale and explosive quest, and on its insanely large world of Medici, but technical problems and dated mechanics hold it back from living up to its potential.

    Long load times, sluggish frame-rate and awful shooting would usually be the end of an action game. Just Cause 3 just about gets away with it though thanks to the hugely open approach to carnage with the likes of grappling hooks, parachutes, wingsuits, rocket launchers, infinite C4, tanks, choppers and the freedom to do whatever you want with them.

    The lasting memories of Just Cause 3 will be the small moments where everything comes together to make the most insignificant action feel like a unique event. The fact that all of the mechanics work together so seamlessly is impressive, but the magic is fleeting.

    When the spectacular fireworks and hilarious, delightfully destructive chaos kick off, the frame rate often drops well below 30 frames per second. And when the frame rate drops, it’s much harder to defy death as you’re piloting one of the many helicopters, jets, or cars, or stay in the air when you’re using the fun but touchy wingsuit. When you die, you’re subjected to loading times that can last 90 seconds or more.

    10/10 from me.. this game gives me everything I want at the moment; FUN, FUN & FUN!

    Truly a step up from Just Cause 2, in this 3rd
    10/10 from me.. this game gives me everything I want at the moment; FUN, FUN & FUN!

    Truly a step up from Just Cause 2, in this 3rd installment bigger really is better. I have recently put 3 days into Fallout 4 and I find myself dropping it like a hot potato just thinking about the chaos I can create in this game.

    For those who want a break from the intense online shooters, epic story rpgs and games alike.. pick this up!

    I am very much enjoying the game at the moment only played about 3 hours of it so far but very impressive. Many of the aspects of Just Cause 2I am very much enjoying the game at the moment only played about 3 hours of it so far but very impressive. Many of the aspects of Just Cause 2 that I loved are still there but somehow made even better. Also some of the new features such as the wing suit are so fun and so exciting to use.

    Just cause 3,

    Just cause 3,
    massive map, massive fun, and massive let down.
    Just cause 3 is a 3rd person action adventure gamewhere you play as rico rodriguez, set out to liberate the massive island you’re on...
    You do this equipped with some guns, a parachute, and a grappling gun…
    Just cause 3 is hilarious, and never takes itself seriously... it knows it’s a ridiculous videogame and it makes fun of itself the entire way…
    You’re going to have a blast for the first few hours of this game...
    There’s seemingly so much to do...
    There are cars to collect... missions to do... towns and bases to liberate, and challenges to conquer
    plus basically the entire world is destructive
    unfortunately, this becomes stale very quickly…
    Apart from the hilarious cut scenes, there’s nothing special about the campaign, it’s your typical fight your way to the bad guy story, get the things he’s after before he does…
    what I found pretty clever though is that a couple missions require you to liberate sections of the map before they will unlock..
    This forces you to do the best parts of the game in my opinion...
    Liberating can be fun... at least the military bases...
    You basically go in and destroy all of their goods while they try and stop you…
    and this is the meat of the game…
    it’s a clean the map game which again is fun for a while, but is massively repetitive…
    I feel like the staleness comes from the restrictions the game puts on you…
    For starters as you complete missions and get stars from missions you’ll unlock vehicles and guns…
    the great thing is you can request these items from a drop box anytime at all
    the problem is you need a beacon to do this…
    This is bad because you’ll find yourself in the middle of nowhere many times after a mission with no beacons or a helicopter in sight... causing you to have to grapple way 8,000 km to your next way point
    Sure infinite beacons would’ve made just cause 3 much easier.. But more importantly I feel like it would make the game much more fun...
    more about causing destruction and mayhem and less about forcing you to traverse a massive but empty world….it isn’t a game you play for challenge anyway or really a game you play to explore…
    the same issue can be found with fast travel..
    You can only carry 1 flare at a time and you need this flare to fast travel to a location…
    I would’ve much rather had fast travels be endless but limited to liberated bases...
    This would’ve given me incentive to liberate beyond the minimum to complete the story…
    but while you are creating havoc, almost everything you do is tied to a score so you can try to outdo your friends in craziness…
    you can of course opt out and play offline. .but annoyingly every time you go to check the map or pause the game it tries to log you in stopping all flow and immersion of the game...
    This is by far the greatest sin the game commits…
    I had games downloading in the background so it would attempt to log in for minutes, causing me to get distracted numerous times by something else… only to remember oh yeah, I was playing just cause 3…
    When I enter offline mode, please keep me there until I opt in to online...
    don’t try to force it
    while there are hours of fun to be had in just cause 3
    I didn’t really find the journey to be worth it all in the end…
    There’s a good time here, just no real substance
    I give just cause 3 an 8/10

    Do you ever feel like parachuting into a military base and using a RPG to blow up anything in sight? Well that's Just Cause 3, You will spendDo you ever feel like parachuting into a military base and using a RPG to blow up anything in sight? Well that's Just Cause 3, You will spend most the game going from Cites,Towns and Military Bases and destroying them. The game takes place in a tropical island in the middle of a Military Dictatorship, You are part of the rebel group and I'm sure you see where this is going. The highlights from Just Cause for me have to be using your Grappling hook and wing suit to fly across the map like a superhero or just thinking of new ways to destroy everything. The game is fairly simple with not much depth, If you don't enjoy the simplicity of just killing everything with not much of a story then you won't really enjoy Just Cause 3. It seems like a game you play for a bit then move on, not much with the game keeps you playing or draws you in. Expand
