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 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?!
