    Just Cause 4 fulfills the promise of what a Just Cause game should be better than any of its predecessors.

    While it misses some of the best features from its predecessors, Just Cause 4 is a captivatingly fun experience, with enough new mechanics to be a staple for action fans.

    Just Cause 4 is neither a revolution nor a weak entry in the series, but it is actually the most complete Just Cause title yet. JC4 gathers everything positive from the previous games, adds some other things on top of that, and despite a repetitive gameplay and some story telling issues, still manages to at least satisfy the fans of the series.

    Rico is back, in a technically stable adventure that unfortunately lacks an interesting story, varied mission design and state-of-the-art graphics. There's a lot of fun to be had in the world though and perhaps that's enough.

    Just Cause 4 more often than not feels like an average open world third person shooter than it does the explosion filled bonanza that it should be
  6. 60
    It’s an improvement on the last game but as a franchise Just Cause is still squandering the majority of its potential with its banal mission design and dull storytelling.

    It doesn't matter how cool an individual set piece looks if all the smaller scenes leading up to it are marred by unresponsive vehicles, dumb AI, and shoddy physics.

    Dont let people complaining about technical performance deter you from buying this game, while it does admittedly suffer some annoying pop inDont let people complaining about technical performance deter you from buying this game, while it does admittedly suffer some annoying pop in and low textures from far away, it is an improvement over the massive lag spikes we saw in just cause 3. When you are in the thick of a fight or soaring through the skies of Solis in (or on) a plane, or gliding through the desert with your wingsuit, a patch of ground that doesnt quite look like a masterpiece is incredibly insignificant. Another thing people complain about is how the game does not really provide much fun through story and side missions, this is because as anyone who has played the just cause series will know, the game merely provides a space for you to make your own fun. If you are very reliant on story driven linear games just handing you your objectives then you wont enjoy just cause, so dont buy it, but if you are good at making your own fun than just cause, despite having flaws, is the perfect game for you.

    Lo bueno: Es un juego para pasar el rato y relajarse.
    Lo malo: su historia es horrible, tiene un gameplay repetitivo, sus gráficos son peores que los de la entrega anterior, y sus texturas son vomitivas(al menos en la versión de PS4)

    Para fines prácticos, es un Just Cause más..., bueno para pasar el rato, pero no es indispensable.
    no recomiendo su compra a menos que seas un fanático de la saga, o un jugador que no quiere calentar su cabeza con tramas rebuscadas y solo quiere divertirse explotando cosas.

    Like another reviewer on here, I also made an account just for this game. It's clearly an undeveloped, unfinished product. I literally playedLike another reviewer on here, I also made an account just for this game. It's clearly an undeveloped, unfinished product. I literally played it for 20 minutes and felt like I needed to wash away the experience. Everything people are saying about the graphics is true. I actually gave it the benefit of the doubt, thinking "how bad could it be?" The textures really are PS2 level, objects and lighting pop in and out, and the only way the open world looks pretty is from a great, great distance. Just Cause games are good for some fun, don't think about it action to unwind. I don't think anybody expects a Game of the Year here, but I did expect a 7-level experience. Buyer beware. Big regret. Online reviewers playing it on PC may have had a justifiably 7 or 8 level experience, but it simply isn't there on PS4. Square Enix announced a patch this morning, but I could not care less. Got the game refunded. Expand

    I'm an all time Just Cause fan... And I must say I'm extremely disappointed with this game. By far worst game of the franchise. I bought itI'm an all time Just Cause fan... And I must say I'm extremely disappointed with this game. By far worst game of the franchise. I bought it for base PS4. Graphics are the worst thing. Sometimes it literally seems a PS2 game. Water looks awful. FPS are also terrible. Gameplay changed a lot. Movement is slower. Grappling hook configurations are tedious. And the way they changed settlements is just awful. Now you don't have to liberate anything in order to unlock new places. You just have to go and destroy random stuff around the map to get chaos and get troops to move around the map. About the story I can't say much for now. The way they did Sheldon reminds me when Game of Thrones changed the Daario Naharis actor with a completely different one... That's simply not Tom Sheldon. Played a few missions and they all were the same. I'm seriously thinking about returning this. Expand
