Just Cause 3
Top Critic Average
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.
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, if we were to go back several years, would have been a pretty darn good game. I mean just look at your predecessors. The problem lies in it being released in 2015, and the rules that made up open world sandbox games has changed pretty dramatically. Worlds are not just worlds for your chaos, but an interactive experience. It is too simple.
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 is a toy box full of fun. However it won't take you long to realize a lot of these toys are broken.
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.

Just Cause 3 is a big sandbox that lets you run around with a gun, a grappling hook, and a wing suit and blow up anything or anyone you want.
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.
Fun in small bursts, but overwhelmingly mediocre
Thanks to over-the-top game mechanics that encourage not just mayhem but also creative ways of unleashing them, the game can be a hoot to play for action lovers who have imagination and a sense of humor. Some parts are admittedly shallow and the game could use a more memorable plot. If you like campy action, however, Just Cause 3 is for you.
