This score is about what I expected. JC4 is very iterative but focusing on adding more crazy stuff isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s looks like an improved Just Cause playground to mess around in. I’ll probably pick this up when it’s a bit cheaper. I still feel really burned by JC3.
At least it’s actually playable on consoles this time around as well. JC3’s framerate was so bad (consistently in the low 20s or less when you actually did anything) that I think many people are never going to touch this game. It was one of the worst AAA console ports that I’ve ever played.
I’m still bewildered by the odd person who claims, “I didn’t even notice a thing. Seemed fine to me.” How can you not notice unresponsive controls, frequent stuttering and when a game descends into a slideslow? You belong in a madhouse and I’ll be joining you if I ever have to play JC3 on a base PS4 ever again.
