    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.

    Playing on Xbox One X

    First, the good: It's Just Cause, so destruction and explosions are front and center. The game is incredibly fun.
    Playing on Xbox One X

    First, the good:

    It's Just Cause, so destruction and explosions are front and center.
    The game is incredibly fun.
    The physics and using the new devices bring another level of craziness to the open world genre.
    A ton of stuff to do
    The new map system and using recruits to take over regions is new and pretty neat

    The bad:

    Mostly more of the same from JC3
    The game seems kind of dark in some areas for some reason - maybe HDR is not used correctly in the game
    The graphics are not the best, but good enough
    The story is non-existent
    Why no reviews for the console versions of this game? PC reviews are everywhere. Seems Avalanche knows the game is not up to snuff on the consoles.

    Overall:

    If you are a Just Cause fan, you will love it. Although the graphics are not top level, they are good enough to enjoy the game. Seems suspicious that there are no console reviews up yet. I suspect Avalanche had to dial down the graphics to make game run better because of all the physics going on. The game is a lot of fun and if you look at the game from that viewpoint, you will enjoy it.

    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

    I played Just Cause 2 once. I was surprised it was better than Just Cause 3. It's better than JC4, too. Don't waste your money! Its not justI played Just Cause 2 once. I was surprised it was better than Just Cause 3. It's better than JC4, too. Don't waste your money! Its not just in the details. Some would say that boats not producing wake (that's not even the worst of the water) is bad. But compared to everything else this 'game' has to offer, it's nothing. I would DEFINITELY buy something different. I wish I bought GTA:SA. Expand
