You're basically Spiderman But you're on steroids And you have infinite parachutes And you have a wingsuit And you have a cooler name And you can steal cars And you can steal someone's airplane in mid-flight So it's kinda like GTA too But it has a bigger map And better graphics And a better storyline And a wingsuit And practically everything is destructible The explosions are cooler Maybe it's more like an action movie But you're the protagonist And you have a wingsuit Need a tank? No big deal. Just go borrow one from the army. They may shoot at you, but that's okay. They're helping you learn how to dodge bullets. Ever collapsed a bridge and watched a train fall onto hundreds of innocent civilians? I have. It was fun. Did I mention there was a wingsuit?
Just Cause 3 is what would happen if you took the free-roaming of GTA and placed you on huge series of islands, told you that the police are actual villains, and gave you the ability to tether anything to everything and blow it up by using mini-jet boosters. Oh and let you glide almost indefinitely with a wingsuit and a parachute. Basically, that is Just Cause 3 in a nutshell: you have the freedom to destroy anything however you wish, by firing rockets at buildings, to tethering explosive barrels to towers, or driving a plane the size of a school into an oil platform. The world is your oyster, and you have to free it from a tyrannical leader by destroying it. If continually destroying building after building with new and exciting weapons and tactics, Just Cause 3 is for you. If not, then stay away. However, I need to dock points for this bundle due to the DLC: it’s nothing but weapons and vehicles, stuff you should be able to earn in-game, but instead locked behind a paywall. This is unacceptable in any game. If you like guns, explosions, and more guns and explosions, you will like Just Cause 3. Just don’t go in expecting much else.
"Scorpio" is back in this third episode of the Just Cause franchise. It's basically the same thing as before. You have gigantic open world where you can destroy almost everything and must wreak havoc as much as possible in order to free the country from some dictator. Just Cause 3 is not a clever game. The shooting feels very "arcade". The story is ridiculous. But the whole game is very fun. The big feature here is the wingsuit. Now you can fly across the map without any vehicle and that's amazing. Also the presentation is gorgeous. Note however that the game is not well optimised.
Just Cause 3 tries to introduce new gameplay mechanics that are quite interesting. Being able to maneuver around tall skyscrapers and wearing a wingsuit to get around the environment is something of a rarity to see in a lot of games. However, the positive aspects of Just Cause 3 will come to an end after seeing those characteristics as eager players and fans will be hit hard by disappointment. The game immediately becomes shallow with the stale and cliche'd gun fights. Then, the horrible optimization cripples the game's functionality, along with continuous stuttering. Then, even when past that, the problems with Just Cause 3 will simply not cease to exist. The missions are uninspired and the characters are not interesting, making them very easily forgotten. It would appear the developers focused too much on "wowing" the crowd in presentations to cash in with graphics and extensive parkour but failed miserably in making the game good and giving it substance. I give Just Cause 3 a C- for possibly introducing some new and fairly solid mechanics but unless the game receives much needed updates, Just Cause 3 will only be remembered for being over-hyped and lacking focus on other parts.
