When the action gets hot, the PS4 and Xbox One can't deliver the performance Just Cause 3 needs to be fun.
Not even IGN likes the loading. I guess IGN was not paid to like this game!
im just gonna add that they gave 9 out of 10 to Evolve...
"You cant spell IGNorant without IGN or You cant spell IGN without IGNorant" - some guy on the internet
alien isolation 6
They gave Battlefront an 8/10
"Repetitive liberations" lol and they gave MGSV 10/10 lol.
weird review since they gave the pc version an 8 and it too has technical problems. the frame rate and loading on the consoles must have been too much for them.
I'll admit I have not been following IGN for years now, but since when they started to make platform distinction in reviews? Not a rant, I think it's actually a good idea, but I hope they are making (or had made?) this a standard, not just a move to save face after giving a broken game an 8 score on a review with no platform specifics (as far as I remember the headline here on N4G didn't mention PC, it's not like I'm reading IGN)... Ok, that was kinda ranty.
Pretty weird that technical performance matters all of the sudden, when they gave AC Unity high marks in its broken state & Halo MCC high marks when the mp wasn't functional for 6 months. I reckon this is a reaction to all the flak they received for those reviews, but it's too little too late unless they consistently base their scores off of performance from here on out....doubtful really. An outlet that size needs some kind of consistency, either you aren't marking off for technical issues or you are, can't have it both ways.
Dan Stapleton is the one reviewing it. I suggest avoiding his reviews as he cannot hold a consistent ideal from game to game. See: his fallout 4 review.
I have it on a console and I haven't had any trouble with it???
Loading? Seriously did you even update the game??? Loading is almost instant! But yeah performance does drop a bit but this game is an 8/10 at least
Seems pointless to get a shameful pc fanboy to do a console review.
Um they don't get paid for any reviews, don't act like a child.
Give me evidence that reviewers are paid. What company would pay for an 8/10 review? Because as of right now, the majority of games are getting grades in the 7-8 range. On top of that. People need to stop looking at reviews as scales based out of 10, despite that what they say. A 10 is a masterpiece, 9 is amazing, 8 is good, 7 is ok, 6 is bad. Anytime a game gets below a 6, they're trying to make an example of it. That's clearly the system at this point. It's a system out of 5, that they add 5 to for no real reason.
Yet AC Unity, Battlefront 4 and some others got more or less a free pass Oh and repetitive? Where was that in the MGSV review, the worst offender
Worst review site award goes toooo.....
Star wars got a pass for being star wars and everyone knows dice will give great expansions. Mgs v got a pass because its Mgs and that is all. I am not saying that battlefront or Mgs v are bad games but the same things other games get bad mouthed on these games got passes. I wanted to try just cause 3 and I still might buy it on pc because cd keys has it for 30 bucks. But this game looks like it will be fun for like 3 hours then boring as hell. I have never played just cause but I doubt this game is a 5.9.
I have it and it is far better than a 5.9. It may have some framerate issues and the loading times suck, but it still is really fun. I'd give it a 7.5. I'm hoping the load times improve with updates.
They got $$$$$$$$$$ from EA and Ubisoft.
Up to 4 minute loading times? Wtf...
that's hard to imagine!
Yea its pretty long on SSD on PC...I can only imagine the pain on consoles... O_O
I've had a 6 minute loading screen when trying to retry a time trial.
It's not that bad, I've been playing it for a few days now on PS4 and I've never had to wait even close to that long. Sure they're not quick by any stretch, but they are not that bad either.
SHOTS FIRED lol
Evolve 9/10, that's all.
Probably not even the same reviewer. Also different games promising different experiences. That's all.
No, but it is the very same reviewer gave the Fallout 4 review a pass disregarding its bugs, but condemns Just Cause 3 for bugs, because "it's an action game, and heavily dependent of performance".
Fallout 4 never had me sitting on a loading screen for 6 minutes.
Just Loading 3
I have the Just Stuttering 3 edition. Patches can't come fast enough.
Seems I'm not going to play this game soon
Damn on IGN's scale that's like a -3.8/10
Well, guess it's just Just Cause 2 for me.
Evolve and starwars battlefront what does these two have in common? Hmm lack of content and no single player yet they get good reviews never count on ign
This game is a total fraud, they show us the pc versión all the time and now that the final product is here, ign show their review OF the console versión 3 days before the pc versión only to tell us that the game is unplayable, and afther 2 days trying to play IT on ps4 i figured out by miself on the worst way, spending 60 bucks on a pile OF trash, the worst things about the game at this point are not the framerate or the long loading times, the real enemy is the useless log in system that tries to login you in every time and the servers are failing right now since thuesday, and if you choose to go offline, even then the game tries to login when you try to view the map, or select items or missions and keep you waiting on the login screen every time, thats a real ripoff the game does not have any multiplayer Mode al all...
Fallout 4 had some of these problems - 9.5/10. Remember that
Worse of all it's the same reviewer who did Fallout 4 as well.
Stapleton's voice is so annoying. He's the same clown who started that debate with Angry Joe.
But fallout 4 does other things really well. I disagree with the 9.5/10 on fallout 4, but from what I can tell, it deserves a better rating than this game.
I completely disagree. The quality just isn't there for Fallout 4. It's completely riding on the fallout name.
Have you played other fallout games? If you think they deserved goos scores, then I don't see why you would dislike this one.
Stop complaining bout IGN,, wait for Angry Joe, If he say its suck..... I will take his word for it.
nope. Angry Joe is just as bad. Stop putting your faith in one guy.
If all the other reviews from other site also give it bad score, what are you gonna say then?????
Exactly. I don't like the fact that he's named Angry Joe. I can't trust what he says because how would I know his review score isn't made up by anger?
@Lennoxb63 Angry Joe is just his persona, much like Lennoxb63 is yours on here or kupomogli is mine. As crappy as Angry Joe is as a gamer, he really goes in depth in his reviews. He's my favorite reviewer. I'd recommend going to watch some of his reviews. Go watch his GTA5, XCOM, and Guild Wars 2 reviews on Youtube, all three getting high scores from him. Because we're talking about Just Cause 3, watch his Just Cause 2 review on his website(half of it is cut off on Youtube to try and get more hits on his website at the time.)
Wow, just wow. I am having a blast with the game X1 version. Framerate dips when action gets crazy but nowhere near game breaking. When I booted up the game, I immediately linked my email address to the squareEnix website and its been flawless in that regard, loads up quicker than gta. Perhaps if you skip that prompt, it causes issues with the servers? Granted I havent done any challenges or missions, just exploring, smashing leaderboard records, and liberating outposts having a super good time with the game. IGN is a joke to me now and with that, Im gonna go and do something crazy and creative in Just Cause 3, my personal GOTY by a longshot. People born in the 80's will truly 'get' this game.
No game out right now will give you this much fun. That's a ridiculous score.
If they are having major performance problems what do you want them to do? Ignore it and give it a 9 like they have done with other games? We keep bashing them for giving games with major issues 9s but when they give a 6 to a game they are having a tough time playing everyone loses their minds. IGN does need to be more consistent with their scores. How does BF4 get a 8.5 and it was worse than this? Im having issues too on PC and have put this game on hold until its fixed. Cant enjoy the destruction when you go from 60 fps to 20 fps everytime I attack a base.
Woah woah woah . Wait a minute so now they are taking points for performance issues ? Then why did fallout 4 get such high reviews when it also had frame drops and many glitches ?
This in about the worst review I have ever seen. If there gonna do each version separate how does the XB1 version get the same score as the PS4 version? Ps4 version has a better resolution, less frame rate drops, and remote play.
Will wait for the definitive blow up everything open world game with cloud power: Crackdown 3!
Is it to much to ask for some type of consistency? Regardless of if it's different reviewers there should be SOME kind of standard for ALL reviews to adhere to.
I feel like this game series is misunderstood. Rating systems are just not working for this game. This game is not about story and drama, it's just meant to be a fun experience. When you master the gameplay you are basically superman. And it's soo much fun just to travel around this beautiful world and do crazy shit. But rating systems aren't equipped to reflect that feeling most of the time. Apart from them technical difficulties (I pretty much have none on my mid range pc) this is such a fun experience I love it!
With how bad IGN is with their game / movie reviews there are still people that trust them their reviews? They reviewed the Xbox One Elite controller & review score would have been better if the controller was cheaper. IGN review pro / con for the Elite controller they complained about the price & used it as a reason the score wasn't better
Just cause is a Sandbox destruction game. I wouldn't waste full price on it. I would prefer that kind of destruction in a real AAA title. 4min loading times are a joke.
I have yet to experience a 4 min load time, 30 sec tops. It is imperative that you setup your sqEnix account so you can login to the servers. X1 version here. Additionally, if you lack a creative, imaginative mind you will think this game is bland. Just Cause 3 gives you the tools and gets out of the way, I am loving it, worth every penny at full price, no regrets, just pure crazy fun! Just Cause 3 succeeds in exposing those people who have no imagination. If you were born in the 80's, there is a very high chance you will love this game to bits. This review is grade A garbage.
Gamers these days are like little babies, needing to be spoonfed content, otherwise they are not mature enough to think for themselves... quite a shame really.
Reviews don't mean shite for this game because its mostly the loading and lagging that reviewers are bitching and giving low scores for. The Gameplay is solid and a good 8.5/10
Can't rate them the same Xbox version runs worse by all accounts.
I don't see how Just Cause 3 gets worse reviews because of frame drops when it has better framerate than Fallout 4 does. Digital Foundry showed off a framerate comparison and the PS4 version is a stable 30fps except for one scene where the bridge is blown up by C4.
