Just Cause 3 is a joy to play and is easily a candidate for game of the year.
PlayStation Universe -
Filled with action, Just Cause 3 offers a massive and realized world with engrossing scenes inspired by works like those from Michael Bay. Skill development aside, this sequel delivers on all fronts.
Just Cause 3 is a lot like Just Cause 2, but a host of additions including the wingsuit and gear mods make the game a joy to play. Add in some amazing graphics, stunning explosions, and a huge world and you have a nearly perfect title. One only brought low by online connection issues.
Just Cause 3 may not trump its predecessor in every way, but it does excel beyond Just Cause 2 in its sheer creative freedom. The new tools and tweaks to old ones work great, it's just up to gamers to discover how best to use them. Having so many choices you lose track of them is one of the best things any game can offer, and Just Cause 3 does so in spades.
This game doesn't innovate much over its predecessors but it has an interesting component of creative and open action. Just Cause 3 is one of those sandboxes that, in the long term and when you have played many hours, is not fun, it's simple entertainment. Avalanche Studio gets one of the most agile, rapid and interactive open worlds, it's a pure explosion of gameplay.
Giant Bomb -
If you're aware of the game's limitations and you're still eager to blow an open world straight to hell, few games do it better than Just Cause 3.
Just Cause 3 is maybe the best game of the series thanks to the uber efficient combo of the grapple, the chute and the wingsuit that makes traveling a breeze. It only lacks a real multiplayer mode.
Game Informer -
Players may find their enthusiasm flagging at times, but it's hard not to cackle with glee after watching yet another base bloom into a fiery blossom.
When Just Cause 3 is consistent, however, it's a stunning display of cause and effect, as watchtowers topple into fuel tanks, which blow up nearby helicopters, which sail into oncoming vehicles. I often spent hours setting up outlandish chain reactions, or trying new gear mods, knowing full well I wasn't making any progress in the traditional sense. I was content to just sit back and marvel as it all happened.
It truly is an insane, explosion-filled romp through a beautiful nation chock-full of cheeky humor. It provides some of the best open-world tools ever. This is definitely a case of "it is what you make of it," and for those with intrinsic motivation to make it the best will be greeted with just that.
Just Cause 3 is a playground where you get to be a physics-defying force of destruction, and its loop of liberating dozens of towns across this enormous scenic world would've gotten old much quicker if the combat wasn't so full of options for free-form mayhem. Getting the most out of it requires some creativity and tolerance for performance bugs on your part, so come expecting to make at least some of your own fun.
Rico Rodriguez returns to save his homeland and blow up the evil forces of General Di Ravello Medici in an archipelago of 1.000 km2 of chaos and destruction. Offering hours of fun and explosions but neglecting other aspects, such as graphics and plot, it's unclear whether the fireworks be enough to engage the player.
IGN Italia -
Just Cause 3 is quite a good game, but it would have been better with more attention to detail.
Just Cause 3 is a wonderfully constructed open-world, that successfully builds on its predecessor's legacy with humour and aplomb. The key problem however is that at the moment there are too many technical problems which hamper play. You'll want to be wild and free, blowing everything to hell in a variety of ways, and so often you can be, but that only serves to emphasize those moments where Just Cause 3 struggles to keep up.
PC Gamer -
The explosions are amazing, and it's fun in short bursts, but Just Cause 3 is ultimately an unremarkable, shallow experience.
Digital Spy -
From its intense firefights to its wanton destruction and carmageddon, Just Cause 3 has all the hallmarks of a classic action movie - it's just a shame the end result is more Van Damme in quality than vintage Schwarzenegger or Stallone.
There's a lot to do in Just Cause 3, it's just that doing it all isn't really that much fun. In fact it's probably a better game in retrospect than it is when you're playing it: freed from the controls and other issues, you'll remember it fondly. You'll also likely want to get back to it: there's a moreish, Ubisoft-style vibe here that encourages repeated playing. Those of you that wanted Just Cause 2 Part 2 will love what's on offer, but it all feels lesser than the sum of its parts.
A chaotic action romp, tragically let down by repetition and padding. There's fun to be had, but all too little variety in its huge open world.
