Just Cause 3 Review- An excellent ride but with a lot of bumps along the way.
Just cause 3 was released around 2015. It’s an action-adventure game developed by Avalanche Studios and published by Square Enix. Just cause 3 is the third instalment of the series; it’s a direct sequel to Just Cause 2, released in 2010. The game takes place six years after the events of just cause 2.
Rico Rodriguez returns to his homeland, Medici, which is under the reign of the dictator General Sebastiano Di Ravello. The game is a third-person action-adventure game but very different to the GTA series. The game is open to the players to explore to their heart’s content, and this time they have added new elements to the game, making the gameplay much more fluid and smooth.
Just Cause 3-Gameplay.
This time around, we have new weapons and equipment that Rico can use to wreak havoc upon his enemies and the world overrun by the Medici militaries. This time Rico has returned with his nifty Wingsuit, which allows players to traverse the Whole island almost like a bird; we can also use our Grappling hook and parachute, but it’s much improved this time.
Ricos Wingsuit allows the player to glide across the world more quickly. When players reach the ground using the Wingsuit, they can use the grappling hook and parachute to draw themselves upward again. Players can switch between using the parachute and Wingsuit freely, which makes the gameplay smoother.
Just Cause 3: Combat
With the equipment at disposal, players can use a wide range of weapons like Assault rifles, Shotguns, missile launchers, RPGs from the parachute similar to its prequel but with much-improved animations and vehicles, such as fighter aircraft, planes, ships, and exotic cars, are included in the game.
However, players can do many creative things with their grappling hook in this instalment; the grapple has two barbed ends that can attach two objects together, leading to some very inventive kills with more formidable foes like Tanks and choppers.
Just Cause: World
The world size is 400 square miles, but it feels empty. While traversal is fun, the only actual game content is in towns and bases. Everything else is either for the challenges that you’ll need to complete for upgrades or lush desolation that’s beautiful but useless. Collectables do exist, but they’re scarce, usually located in towns or bases.
However, some locations are very lucrative and colourful compared to its predecessors, but it lacks contents, and the bases and towns look similar. Secondly, exploring such a vast world leads to boredom when there’s nothing more to do other than shooting and blowing things up.
Just Cause: Missions
Just cause 3 is all about shooting and blowing things up, of course, and it’s not known for its storytelling. Still, there are no side missions like Assassins creed 3 in this game; only story missions follow almost the same pattern, which gives players the vibe of repetitive missions. However, upon completion, some challenges provide Rico with mods to upgrade your gears, but these are not side missions.
These are based on my personal thoughts and opinion let me know down in the comments about your thoughts/opinions.
