Re: JUST CAUSE 4: Xbox One / PS4

Cool thanks. I already bought the gold edition since i wanted the bonus stuff and dlcs. I had a blast with the JC3 dlcs.

Hopefully they can patch some of the correctable issues in the future

Re: JUST CAUSE 4: Xbox One / PS4

Reviews on Steam have been overwhelmingly negative. Apparently the PC version is chock full of bugs that render the game nearly unplayable.

Re: JUST CAUSE 4: Xbox One / PS4

I will say the grapple hook is still fun, and even more so now. Found lots of ways to destroy with it and only just started playing. The balloons add a nice element.

Oh, and I bought the Gold Edition as well. That's how high my hopes were.

Re: JUST CAUSE 4: Xbox One / PS4

I was playing JC2 via BC but found it kinda clunky so I stopped. I bought JC3 on sale ($9, I think) but haven't started it.

Re: JUST CAUSE 4: Xbox One / PS4

I'm going to just keep my copy and hope it gets patched. I have such a back-log, I can wait (and it isn't the first or last game I buy that never gets played if that turns out to be the case). The pain of shipping back to Amazon isn't worth my time these days.

Re: JUST CAUSE 4: Xbox One / PS4

What amazes me is this game went Gold well in advance of release date and yet no first day patch. Impossible that they were unaware of so many glaring problems. The graphics at times are PS2 quality they are that bad. The driving has taken a dive since JC2 as well, just not fun. I am sticking with it simply because the action can be fun, but this game has a massive amount of work ahead of it if Square are gonna qualm any unhappy voices.

The gameplay itself is fine and blowing shit up is always fun, however whereas in JC2 there was a lull at times and you could find different ways to attack a base, this just feels like mindless non stop shooting. The action is actually fun, and I can see that the longer I play this the more I might like it, but I could never recommend this as a day one purchase.

My love for JC2 got me to buy JC3 day one and I regretted it, the videos and previews of JC4 got some faith back into me and I took a chance on this as a day one purchase. That will not happen again with JC5 if it ever comes out.
You took all the words right out of my mouth. Going from RDR to this, it feels like I'm playing on the PS2. I wanted to like it badly, and it's fun, but it just feels...old.

Re: JUST CAUSE 4: Xbox One / PS4

I found it funny to read "HDR Capable" on the front of the box.

Re: JUST CAUSE 4: Xbox One / PS4

OK, so a fee more hours with it today. Its funny but the more I have played it the more I have enjoyed it on a surface level as an action game. All three problems still persist, but at least the action is fun. I do have to admit that I love the design of the sandbox, its just such a shame that the textures are so shitty. If more time was pumped into making this look current gen it would help a great deal. They have done a great job in making the map feel familiar and yet unique and feel quite fresh. I also came across the tornado for the first time today. Was taking on a large wind research facility at the time and got blown around quite a bit. A fun little extra, but nothing spectacular for what it is.

At one point during my play it hit night and I literally couldn't see anything. Went through a sandstorm at one point and the same, but at least it's supposed to hinder visibility.

I will be curious to see what the updates do for this, and will keep the thread in the know.

Re: JUST CAUSE 4: Xbox One / PS4

What are the little streaks that fly across the screen in the hundreds? Those are annoying.

James, I'm not sure if you played Mad Max, but are the tornadoes in JC4 similar to the storms in Mad Max? They were very annoying and often distracting.

I ended up finishing JC3 with the exception of the challenges. Getting 5 gears for the wingsuit and shooting challenges was impossible for me. I will eventually get JC4 when is really cheap or wait for it to become a PS+ free game of the month which happened for JC3.

Re: JUST CAUSE 4: Xbox One / PS4

I did play Mad Max, and enjoyed it a great deal. The storms didnt bother me too much in that, but you don't need to worry in this. The tornado can be seen from a long distance away as the cloud make the cone in the far distance. I came across one storm so far and it was similar to the Mad Max and kind of annoying. Zero visibility, but it seemed to be just located in the desert part which makes sense.

I am enjoying the action of JC4 at this point, but whereas I enjoyed all vehicles travel and play in JC2, this feels more in line with the first game. Cars feel like they are driving on ice and little fun to be had with anything. I did a mission today where I needed to use motorbikes a d the littles knock would send me flipping and spinning. Super annoying. I am gonna blast through the game on foot as much as I can, but doubt it will be getting go much replays unless the updates make drastic. Changes.
