Just Cause 3 is about a civil war between the rebels and the dictator of Medici. Medici is a fictional Mediterranean island that Just Cause 3 is set in and the main character, Rico Rodriguez’s home. In the campaign, you liberate towns, destroy vehicles, and defeat mini bosses until you fight the dictator himself.
One of the things I enjoy about Just Cause 3 is that it is an open world game, meaning you can roam the islands, towns, and everywhere else without having to complete objectives. I also like how many vehicles you can find just roaming the islands. Some of the vehicles that can be found are attack helicopters, military vehicles, a F1 racing car, two other sports cars, jets, tanks, etc.
Some of my favorite things to do are raiding military citadels, hijacking cars, planes, tanks, and helicopters, and wing suit flying from high places.
Military citadels are the hardest places to raid because of the extra defenses that protect the base. There are Bavarium nukes, air strikes, and EMP cannons to name a few. When you raid citadels, the only way to cut off or shut down the extra defenses is to control the entire region or province. I found that out when I got nuked on my own base and died which put me on a loading page with text that explained what I had to do to shut off the nukes. It is kind of frustrating because it takes a lot of hard work to take down citadels. The most challenging citadel to cease is Falco Maxime: Centcom because often times I would die as soon as I was within range of the bavarium nukes. It took me over fifty attempts to take the citadel down and just when I thought I was safe, I got nuked exploring the base. Every time you raid a citadel, you are given either a weapon or military vehicle for your drop list. That’s one of my biggest reasons for raiding citadels.
Hijacking cars is easy, planes are hard to find and if they’re airborne it’s hard to hijack them, tanks are easy to hijack unless the person riding the tank has backup because they don’t hesitate to fire on each other, and helicopters are relatively easy to hijack. I usually choose to hijack a helicopter to get to places then a tank to destroy those places.
Wing suit flying is super fun. If you don’t have a vehicle, flying is the fastest way to get around. It’s also the best way to evade bullets. If you’re not freeing a town or evading the military, flying around and sight seeing is something to do. Just Cause 3 is very realistic and has beautiful landscapes.
I don’t hate anything about this game other than how difficult it is to take down military bases or citadels. Just Cause 3 is fun to play, it’s very realistic, has wonderful graphics, and it’s an open world game.
