We spent the whole week end playing Just Cause 3 on PS4 and had a lot of fun, but sadly, it came with a price. If you want to find out why and you want to enjoy a few pretty nice videos, please follow us inside. Don't hesitate to share your thoughts too. GSY Live: We'll be playing Just Cause 3 on Tuesday evening 9:30 GMT+2.
Despite some rather unacceptable technical flaws, Just Cause 3 surpasses its predecessor with high flying stunts and even more exhilarating action. With its over the top scenarios which easily surpass the stupendously caricatured protagonist, the latest Avalanche title stands to please those who swear by the great Rico Rodriguez. The world is massive, rich in opportunities to go nuts, and just plain fun to play through. Of course, some of its activities can feel rather repetitive but, in the end, it's impossible not to come running back to Medici with a smile on your face. Ultimately, Just Cause 3 is the kind of game that's just loaded to the brim with joy – it's just a shame that it is partially spoiled by lengthy load times and frame-rate drops. Muy Rico!
On the plus side
+ A vast world
+ …and beautiful too
+ An impressive draw distance
+ Hitting the skies in the wingsuit
+ The wingsuit challenges
+ The physics based destruction engine and impressive explosions
+ No more Quick Time Events
+ Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun
+ Did I mention fun?
On the down side
- No more sprinting and no rolling to dodge
- No mini-map on the HUD
- Land based vehicle, motorcycles – the absolute worst
- Uneven visuals
- Performance dips on PS4
- Loading, loading, loading, loading – do I have to "press play on tape" here or what?!
@AndreasZ94: did the people that went missing come back? I'm missing molly, Jack, Abigale and Sadie. (2 Hours ago)
My goty list would be 1)rdr2, 2) GOW, 3)detroit, 4)spiderman. Great year but i definitely want more linear games now, tlou2 better deliver (6 Hours ago)
It's my goty for sure because it's my kind of game but i can see how a lot of people wouldn't like it as much as i did. (6 Hours ago)
My overall feelings about rdr2, there were quite a few issues i had with it but so many incredible and unique moments that overshadowed the negatives. I did get that shitty missing people bug btw (6 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Playing ac odyssey now and its on the opposite side of the spectrum. Very responsive but mediocre and weightless animations. Games like U4, horizon,gow have a good balance (7 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: The movement controls are definitely less responsive than most games but thank god it's much better than current gen gta v input lag. Aiming can be much improved with some setting tweaks (7 Hours ago)
@b0vril: Yeah you still have a lot more to go (7 Hours ago)
