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?!
@GriftGFX: Before Europe will formulate an answer and come to a ppssible bill, we could be years away (39 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: No, the minister of justice is going to ask Europe for advice if the gambling in games should be banned. He thinks it should, but there is no bill drafted. (41 minutes ago)
@nostradamus: I played some of the maps on the free week they had and they weren't bad or maybe it was just me thinking that as I hadn't paid for them :P (1 Hour ago)
@aphex187: the beta map was awesome to play. (1 Hour ago)
BF1 season pass £11.99. Not a massive fan if this game or the series now but I could be tempted by that. (1 Hour ago)
@GriftGFX: meanwhile the land of the free is trying to destroy the internet as we know it. (2 Hours ago)
They're going to wind up harming consumer friendly service models as much as they will punish the bad ones. And I feel like stuff like SWBF2 will be appropriately punished by the market. (7 Hours ago)
