    Awesome Third Person Shooter Game

    The installation took nearly an hour (Even with Disc.) I thought of abort the installation and try another game. But I left the installation to continue since I got some other work. Finally I got installed when I return. Pros: + Easy : Am totally new to XBox, But am able to catch the game pretty fast and able to play well. Kudos to Square Enix. + Graphics : The Graphics is Totally Awesome. Beginner to Pro, No Matter who, you'll love it. + Experience : The Grapple and Parachute ride is So COOOOL. Sniper and great weapons increase the interest. Can't fly anywhere and watch / fight. Can hijack any vehicle and roam. + Addictive : It's very Addictive game. Once you start playing it then you won't keep the controller down. Cons: - Installation Time: The time to install is very long even with Physical Disc. I felt it's too slow to install. - Load Time : The load time for each mission is more or less 2-5 minutes. Definitely it should be reduced. This is the Best Game I've ever played in XBox One among couple of titles. Definitely recommended!.

    Excellent Open-World Game

    After playing Just Cause 2, I couldn't wait to get to play Just Cause 3 once it was first announced. Just like Just Cause 2, the map in Just Cause 3 is huge giving you more area to wreak havoc in. Though the weapon variety is small, vehicle, sea-, and aircrafts is large with anything from a moped to a fully armed tank. The main downfall to Just Cause 3 is the same is the 2nd which was it's lack of variety in terms of objectives, missions, challenges, etc. Missions don't even necessarily feel special what-so-ever, just do what you do when you're free-roaming; blow up everything and kill all the militia. If you're one for a more story driven game, Just Cause 3 probably wouldn't be the best sandbox for you. However, if you're one for sitting back to just destroy everything 'just cause' in a casual manner, this is your game.

    Just Cause......just because it was on sale.

    Overall, this is a great game.  The new mods, which change how your vehicles, weapons, and grappling hooks work, make the game a little deeper than the last.  The story has more polish, but you are probably not playing this game for the story.   The wingsuit and multiple grappling hooks make getting around and destroying stuff more exciting. As much as I enjoy this game, it has a tendency to stutter when you explode too many things at once, which is strange, since this is the main draw for this game. I would’ve figured that two months after release this issue could be fixed.  It doesn’t last too long, just interrupts the flow of the game.  Besides the inconvenience, Just Cause 3 is a blast.

    The Just Cause you know and love, but worse

    Just Cause 3 retains all of the shenanigans you've come to know and love and throws in a lot more weapons, easter eggs, means of transportation, and a lot more into it. As of right now, it seems very incomplete. It doesn't have a minimap, which makes navigating really annoying when you have to flip open the big full screen map every 5 seconds when trying to find something. The majority of the time when you call something in, usually planes or helicopters, they blow up as they pop out of the shipping crates, which is also annoying. I wouldn't suggest paying full price for this, maybe $40 or less, or at least whenever they fix the problems.

    At first I had no idea what I was suppose to do. After getting the hang of it, I could not put it down. A mix of grand theft auto and far cry. Graphics are amazing esp. When you start flying and going under water. Either have a blast in the story or go rouge in the open world. I have not tried any dlc, multiplayer, and load times seem kind of long in-between deaths. That's about the only negative. One of the best games for the X1 yet. If you like driving, flying, swimming, guns, explosions, and a ridiculous Hispanic voice. Really, I'm part Latino. The voice is Ridiculous. I also got just cause 2 also for free. I think it might be the day one edition. Totally worth it.

    Just when you thought open world games couldn't get more addicting than the GTA and Watchdog variety this gem comes out of nowhere! It's a mix of Crackdown, GTA and Watchdog all tied together. The open world is vast and unique. The vehicles you can take control of (Jets, Copters, Tanks, Cars, Bikes, etc...) are all unique and wonderful to enjoy. The ability to "conquer" aka "liberate" each portion of the open world means you get some enjoyable even if repetitive battles. It also has a ton of fun challenges that give you racing mini-games that unlock power ups to your character. If you could only buy one game for your Xbox One this should be it.

    A buggy mess

    I still enjoyed the game, but it is still incredibly buggy and slow (especially when a lot of stuff is happening on the screen). You are basically trying to create as much chaos as you possibly can to move the plot along (think of a GTA, but playing a "good" guy instead of the bad guys. There is a lot to do, and if they can every fix the frame rate and bugs, this would be a blast. But there are times when the game slows to a crawl and is unplayable. If you can put up with occasional hanging gameplay and slow frame rates, and you like causing destruction, give it a go if it's on sale. Otherwise, you may want to stay away for now.

    If you’ve ever played a just cause get this, if not probably get this. It’s a busy game, so you need to have a firm grasp of how to play a shooter. That being said this game doesn’t bother itself with trying to create a perfect story or universe to play in. It sets the pieces up and lets you have a blast blowing through it. There’s never a dull moment (unless your a completionist which can get tedious) and the feeling of complete freedom is pretty liberating. Will recommend this to everyone but those who kinda struggle playing games - looking at you Oma.

    Ok first off I am a fan of the Just Cause series so I was going to like this game no matter what. I love all that this game stands on as far as blowing stuff up! It's just a fun game to just do whatever and see what you can do. My reason for giving this 4 stars Pros 1. Just a blast to play 2. Can't stop blowing thing up just too fun 3. Large map 4. Wing suit is my favorite 5. The things you can do with a grappling hook Cons 1. Graphics are so so but good enough 2. Hand to hand combat lacks 3. Glitches here and there 4. Long load up times 5. Driving is not fun

    This is a silly, over the top explosion simulator. Just Cause has a shallow and forgettable story, with boring characters and dull missions. However, this game is amazing due to the insane scale of destruction, huge explosions and large Arsenal of weapons. On Xbox One, this game has loooooong load times and an inconsistent frame rate. I personally did not experience these issues to the degree others reported, though I amp laying on an Xbox One Elite which has a faster SSD Hard Drive installed. Turn your mind off and shoot everything colored red. It's great!

    For those that like open world and destruction games like Far Cry or Assassins creed series then this is a must have. Some may argue that GTA done first but where can you fly in a plane, jump out as you send it into an enemy camp to self destruct, parachute on to a moving jeep, kick out it's driver and finish the job by shoot-n-driving over those that remain. This game is just that crazy.(check out YouTube for some montages). And if have to choose which system go for the Xbox one as it comes with Download for previous gen's Just Cause 2.

    This game is awesome! If you like to creatively blow things up, this game is for you. From flying and grappling, from collecting vehicles to guns, this game packs an entertaining and cinematic punch. There is plenty to do, from discovering new settlements to mini missions to unlock mods. The main story should not be your main focus. I recommend you take back settlements. That is the number one priority. Enjoy.

    Extremely fun and over the top. The tether system is the most satisfying mechanic I've used in a video game in a long time. The gameplay is pretty solid; I feel as though the character does what I expect him to do. The gunplay is a little loose but I rarely resort to guns. Load times are loooong. Graphics are great and the size of this game is unreal. I flew a plane to a distant island and it took about 5 full minutes to reach it. Between loads and iffy gun controls, I can't say it's a perfect game. Overall, it is extremely fun.

    Overall great fun game. If you're looking to mess around with all kinds of cool explosives and innovative tethers, wing suits, and parachutes, then this is the game for you. Additionally, if you are the type of person who would play games like GTA or Saints Row for hours just messing around and having fun causing mayhem, then this is the perfect game for you. The game play is fun and unique, the destruction is amazing, and creative chaos is greatly encouraged by the game. This game is amazingly epic! Highly recommended.

    I bought this game solely because of the gameplay footage I saw with the character using a grappling line, wingsuit, and parachute to rapidly traverse the landscape in a very unique parkour style. I had never played the previous Just Cause games but I can say I really really like this one. You can grapple and fly around for a long time without getting bored. It's a lot of fun and very unique. No other game has ever done something quite like this that I know of.

    Just Cause 3 is an awesome action packed thrill ride for the Xbox one. Any big time explosion you've seen in the movies, or thought about in your wildest fantasies can be accomplished in this game. Flying threw the sky with jet packs, hooking up 8 chain connected explosives to a cow, nothing can hold you back l, experiment away. The only down fall of this game is slow and long loading times often taking 30-45seconds. Hopefully an update will fix this in the future so you can have uninterrupted explosive fun.

    I would not call myself a serious "gamer" and would HIGHLY recommend this game to anyone who likes FUN! This game is not for those who take themselves too seriously. With that said, if you are just looking to relax and blow stuff up, this is your game. I really liked Just Cause 2 (PC Version) and this game is even better. I have the xbox one version and the only thing I can think of that would make this game any more awesome would be if the system supported mouse & keyboard controls. (Hint, Hint Microsoft!)

    This is one of the best games I've played. At times it is hard to put down the controller cause you want to see what you can do next, pretty much anything you want to do. Should I blow up this plane, car, goat (that's right i said goat) should I steal this car, helicopter, or tank. Should I sky dive wing suit our use a parachute. It is up to you our you can follow the story line. I would recommend this game to my friends. Heck even my dad plays this game. I do believe this game is better that GTA5

    I bought this game as a gift for a family member who basically only plays sports/racing and GTA-style games. Even with GTA, he almost never plays the plot and spends most of the time exploring the city and causing havoc. Just Cause 3 got good reviews from him - is a fun game to relax, enjoy the world and see what wacky stuff you can do in it. Even the game knows no one plays it for the plot and you can do a a hugely diverse amount of over-the-top action in it.
