    Just Cause 4 is another solid entry in a franchise that continues to bring me hours of over-the-top, hilarious action. It doesn’t do enough to evolve the franchise, and doesn’t make enough use of the new weather effects, but the new tools available to Rico and the improvements in customization options is well-worth the price of entry.

    Despite issues in several areas, Just Cause is ultimately about the scale of its action moments over which players have complete control, and the freeform sandbox in which players run amok, and to these ends Just Cause 4 is the best in the series.

    Just Cause 4 is easily the best game in the series, seamlessly combining its freedom of experimentation with its signature, action-packed concept. The addition of extreme weather effects, together with the game’s redefined functionalities, go hand in glove to produce wildly entertaining gameplay opportunities from the get-go. Unfortunately, the game’s weak story and its grindy structure ultimately pulls it just shy of greatness.

    Just Cause has always done, and still does, one thing very well, but it has long lost its novelty and desperately needs something - a reboot, a visual upgrade, a good story. Adding interface and systems complexity does nothing to make core experience more compelling or less familiar. Bugs and opaque mechanisms aside, fans who love the Just Cause games for their unadorned mayhem and destruction will find it once again, but it is hard to imagine anyone coming away excited for another sequel.

    Whether it is fatigue or poor implementation, Just Cause 4 doesn’t feel like a true sequel. The issues I had with the third game have been fixed, but I still fell off this game much faster than I had anticipated. I adored the second game, dealt with the third one, but this fourth entry just lost its appeal far too quickly. It might be time to rethink and restructure the series, or perhaps move on to a new idea.

    Just Cause 4 is a fun game full of explosions and crazy action typically seen in Hollywood movies, beyond that there is nothing. Its graphic section is horrible, although it is mitigated by the physics engine and the global performance of the game.

    Even among games that would deign to call themselves “destructive sandboxes,” few games let you break and blow stuff up like Just Cause, but Just Cause 4 doesn’t go there unless you force it too.

    This game shows the true genre of Super-Destruction, with great implementations of Co-op, new ways of blowing things up, good graphicsThis game shows the true genre of Super-Destruction, with great implementations of Co-op, new ways of blowing things up, good graphics adaptations to be fairer compared to Game 3, and undoubtedly a great story that explores the whole story of Rico Rodriguéz, showing why everything is going to be like that with Black Hand, Avalanche really got over this time.

    As a fan and owner of Just Cause 3 and all of its DLCs I think I have a valid opinion as I say that this game is actually the most forgettableAs a fan and owner of Just Cause 3 and all of its DLCs I think I have a valid opinion as I say that this game is actually the most forgettable thing I have played all year. As some others may have mentioned the gameplay is identical to its predecessor except for the fact that balloons have been added to your wrist rocket. Graphical improvements are essentially unnoticeable and side activities and objectives are buried in the map. And along with all of that the gameplay loop is so hollow it just wants you to keep playing and then... keep playing. Expand

    What to say, it's better than fallout 76 but a lot worse than just cause 3. I didn't play it for long and that's because I just didn't like itWhat to say, it's better than fallout 76 but a lot worse than just cause 3. I didn't play it for long and that's because I just didn't like it even though I wanted to like it so much. Your targets are not that obvious and I found no way of getting ammo for your gun instead I kept having to change to whatever gun the last enemy was using. I only played this for a hour so take my review with a pinch of salt Expand
