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?!
i still think the mastermind itagaki has secretly worked on this game lol :D (1 Hour ago)
Seeing some so called ''souls vets'' giving up, without learn the posture system, cuz no overlevel/co-op/iframes abusing/backstab - sogood.gif (1 Hour ago)
20hrs in and 11 bosses defeated (2 main,9 optional - only one of them was shit yay!), this is the ninja game i've been waiting since NG days bruhs. Loving its depth of all mechanics. (1 Hour ago)
@Melmoth: Yelp, it's all about perry and attack with that guy. (6 Hours ago)
This is the closes (setting) i've seen to my old fav. Irem's Ninja Spirit that i've seen. Feudal japan mixed with From's superb bosses also makes me think about Madhouse's Ninja Scroll. (7 Hours ago)
only played the first area (after the prologue), and it's more openworld-ish than the other From games. very vertical , and wider play area. (8 Hours ago)
@asdfg: The first miniboss felt like something they put in there to tell soulspeople that "don't play it like it's souls". i got whooped seriously when i tried to dodge the guy,. (8 Hours ago)
