It’s ugly, monotone, and almost feels incomplete. Even some of the character animations look lazy, as though the characters themselves are saving their energy for something. The game isn’t without its charm, certainly, but that charm doesn’t amount to much when it is marred by a plethora of other issues. Just Cause 4 approaches its potential, but doesn’t quite seize it. Considering how well the game performs at its peak, that is a real shame.
The master stroke of Just Cause 4 is that it puts you in Rico’s position; as long as you can stay airborne and keep the high going, you can fill a weekend with cheap thrills the likes of which you’ll get nowhere else. When he catches up with that hurricane, he makes a human harpoon of himself and stabs into its heart. Whatever his plan was, one of his allies remarks, ‘It’s fucking nuts.’ Back comes the reply: ‘And that’s why it’s going to work.’
Just Cause 4 is easily the best game in the series, seamlessly combining its freedom of experimentation with its signature, action-packed concept. The addition of extreme weather effects, together with the game’s redefined functionalities, go hand in glove to produce wildly entertaining gameplay opportunities from the get-go. Unfortunately, the game’s weak story and its grindy structure ultimately pulls it just shy of greatness.
