Reviews Summary

Sandbox Mayhem
Lack of Innovation
Bugs and Performance

Summary: While Just Cause 4 delivers the chaotic combat and murderous mayhem the series is known for, it fails to meaningfully advance the series. As a result, many of the systems feel old and dated. Performance also seems to be an issue on PC.

Weather effects and party balloons see a knockabout charmer return in decent form.

Just Cause 4 is a slightly better version of Just Cause 3's destruction-fueled action, but lacks a big new idea to give it an identity of its own.

Still delivers the series' sandbox mayhem, but is underserved by some pretty dated systems.
