IF you can run it, Just Cause 3 is an amazing experience, packed with big explosions, exciting gameplay, and enjoyment. But the IF is an actual question as this has performance issues.

Just Cause 3 had the potential to be a stunning and fast paced open world game, but the loading and frame rate make it frustrating to sustain a lengthy play session.

Rico Rodriguez goes back to his homeland for a massive open-world killing spree but you'll get bored before seeing it all.

Maybe further down the road, or as part of a sale, it would be worth picking up just to mess around in the world and go crazy…and perhaps by then the technical issues will be fixed.

The game is immensely fun. It has heart and soul but also gives the vibe of not caring how stupid it can be; and while the game has a few flaws, none of them cause the game to have a reason not to be played. So if you haven’t done so (If you haven’t already, why not?) go out, get the game, buy a disk, get it from a digital store, play the shit out of it. If you’ve already got the game, keep playing it. Finished it? There’s always the multiplayer mod.

Just Cause 3 is a goddamn fun game. Well, it's fun whenever you're just going around and liberating bases or towns. Everything else just falls on its face (as I have done many times in-flight). The problem, though, is that every other system you use in the game pulls you away from the craziness at hand. As I said in the opening, the game is a damn blast to play, but the way your skill trees unlock, ticking off bases and towns from a big checklist, and gunning down every bad dude you see.

Just Cause 3 is like fast food. The game has the potential to be addictive, but it's lacking in some aspects. Compared to the other open world games, it also lacks depth and variety, but on the other side provides a set of fun toys like a destructive environment and a physical engine designed to maximize bloodshed.

JC3 is lethargic and dull – and while there's always something to do, there's no real desire to actually do it.

Just Cause 3 liefert wieder einmal eine action-geladene Story mit jeder Menge abgefahrener Möglichkeiten euch die Zeit in der riesigen Open World zu vertreiben. Leider kämpft der Titel auf der Playstation 4 mit leichten technischen Problemen und auch die Langzeitmotivation fehlt wie auch schon in den Vorgängern, wegen den wiederholenden Aufgaben und der schwachen KI. Falls ihr auf der Suche nach einem schnellen und vor allem action-geladenen Open World Trip seid (mit einem Hang zu Explosionen), gibt es von uns eine klare Empfehlung.

But aside from some pretty sights and a mostly good storyline, this open world sandbox is disappointingly empty, and makes for a poor explosion simulator thanks to some seriously annoying frame rate problems.
