Having only briefly dabbled with Just Cause 2, I didn’t expect much from its sequel. And whilst Just Cause 3 did release to some fairly good reviews, a lot of critics however argued that the game suffered from superficial gameplay elements that prevented the title from being considered as being truly worth one’s hard earned cash – with some believing that it would be better if one waited for Avalanche Studio’s open world action game to go on sale. Of course, it also didn’t hurt to wait for patches to be released as the game suffered from terrible frame rate and performance related issues when it initially launched in November 2015.
Now that the game is considerably cheaper than its initial £40 price, I’d argue that if you’re a fan of the franchise and like blowing things up in your spare time, then Just Cause 3 is worth picking up as it’s only £17.95. It also looks considerably better than Just Cause 2 – with the carnage and mayhem having been dialed up to 11. Personally however, I’m going to wait for the game to go down to the £12-15 mark, but that’s not to say that you won’t get your money’s worth if you decide to buy it now.
