    Just Cause 4 - After Rain Comes Explosions

    I've not played JC3 on the consoles, only on pc but I heard performance is very bad, in the video they say that JC4 performance is much better on consoles. The game was rock solid on my pc and with some Nvidia control panel tweaks the game looked better but alas the gameplay in my opinion is shite.

    I think somewhere in that video they state that the PS4 version of the game mostly runs at 720p, not sure if that includes the Pro version.

    Alright fuck it, I went and put 12 hours into this game even though I was gonna wait for some patches but I just had to know if I could stay with it, today I uninstalled it. In those 12 hours I got a proper handle on all aspects of the game. Gameplay all boils down to completing missions and taking over regions, to take over a region you have to complete a strike mission which consists of going to the designated enemy base, flicking several switches or using a bunch of consoles and then defending against waves of enemies or destroying a couple of targets. It's always the same, you get there and several elements appear on your hud and you know straight away that you're gonna be racing around the base doing boring stuff for a boring finale. Once the strike mission is complete, the base is yours and allies now run it, and get this, you can go around the now friendly base and destroy all the red labelled structures and earn chaos points risk free! There is no need to destroy the red stuff beforehand, just liberate the base and then do it after. Once the strike mission is complete you can now take over the region which is done via the map screen, it will tell you how many squads are needed to take it over, you click it and thats it, done, it's now yours assuming you have enough squads to burn. You earn squads by earnig chaos which you get from missions and destroying red stuff but I always had plenty of squads avaliable. Story missions are pretty much the same as strike missions but have a cutscene and perhaps a bit more meat to them. There are other missions, ones that involve mostly racing through checkpoints or taking a few recruits out in a vehicle to blow some stuff up. Dotted around the map are challenges, wingsuit challenges, drive a vehicle through a ring above a certain speed and something else I can't remember. I really liked the wingsuit challenges in JC 3 but in this they all consist of three rings and thats it, super easy, no challenge. Every mission, every task, every challenge is just boring, lacklustre, unrewarding and unimaginative. It's such a shame really, I spent some time exploring the vast world and you can see a lot of effort has gone into creating this world but the actual gameplay loop is no fun. I just want to go around blowing shit up, liberating bases/settlements and complete fun challenges, Iv'e reinstalled JC3 as I have all the dlc and never got round to playing it, I'm having a blast tbh. There is so much wrong with this game but if you enjoy it then fairplay to you but if you are like me and enjoyed JC2 or JC3 then I would recommend you steer clear of it.

    Played some more and there is some fun to be had but it is overshadowed by numerous problems. I'm not going to play anymore until there has been some major patches applied, priorities for me being FOV, brightness, contrast, gamma and a massive improvement to graphics and gameplay. I've got plenty of games to play in the meantime, just glad I got the standard edition.

    I've maxed out all settings at 1080p, games runs solid at 60fps but the game is just ugly so far. The grapple seems to have a delay between uses which can make flying awkward, the whole games feels awkward tbh. I'm tired, I'm going to bed, I'll give it another shot tomorrow and hopefully find a way to fix the fov.

    Maybe the console versions have HDR and thus don't look so stark and dark?At the moment I can't fathom how this game is getting good reviews, maybe it gets better the more you play it? I played some more and the game still seems bad, I got in a few vehicles and the fov gets even tighter! Nothing has clicked so far and it all feels a bit confusing, I'm going to install JC3 and do a comparison to figure out if this new one really is bad as it feels.

    Avalanche are making the new Rage game right? Because it seems Just cause 4 was made on the side by a third rate developer. I've played one hour and oh boy is it bad so far, numerous problems were apparent in that time... Pre-rendered cutscenes are indeed awful. Super compressed and plain ugly. Seem to suffer from audio lip sync problems. The game is dark, the game starts at night and I had a hard time seeing shit. There is no brightness or contrast options! No gamma either, wtf. No fov option which sucks, I would like to change it as it feels too claustrophobic. There's two types of AA and neither seem to do jack shit. There are in-game cutscenes and there seems to be some weird ghosting effect going on, maybe happens because motion blur is on. No HDR. I've been in a few fire fights and the enemy are hard to spot, no minimap doesn't help and horrible contrast combined with piss poor art direction means it all looks a mess. The enemies should stand out some what but nope they just seem to blend into the noise. The map screen is weird and as far as I can tell it doesn't allow you to zoom in or out. I've only seen a very small portion of the world so far and it is not a looker so far, seems quite low poly. If I had bought this on Steam I would certainly not be playing more than 2 hours and would probably get a refund. I'm gonna jump back in in a bit but first impressions are not good. If the game continues to be shit then I'll be baffled as to how Avalanche could have fucked up so bad and will be interesting in finding out what the fuck happened.

    How can it not have C4? steam is unpacking the game and now I'm slightly afraid of what awaits me. Surely Avalanche couldn't have fucked up their key franchise? All the videos looked so good but the general vibe seems to be it's bad. I got the game from Greenmangaming so no going back now...

    I read on the Steam forums that the 100% thing has been replaced by some kinda squad thing.I mean the game can't be any worse than 3 surely? I really enjoyed 3. Please don't be shit.

    I've got the standard edition on pc so I'll be playing this tomorrow night. From the videos I've seen on here I think it looks great, I couldn't give a shit about rough cutscenes because thats not why you play a Just cause game. Along as I can blow stuff up and fly around causing havoc in whatever way I want I'll be happy. I need a break from Assassins creed Odyssey and this will hopefully be pure no-nonsense gameplay.

    I have AA on medium or high I think and volumetric clouds down a notch, 4k resolution down scaled to 50%. I just find it annoying that the frame rate splutters in certain places. I even reinstalled Origins to do a quick check and my settings for that game are set higher than Odyssey but it runs lovely, so yeah, optimisation not as good as Origins it seems. Really enjoying the game though, love the improved mercenary and bounty system. Almost 30 hours in and only level 20 and 36% story done. Great that you can wear your best armour and change it to whatever style you like. I think the gameplay is better than Origins but the world itself is a bit ugly in comparison.

    I'm playing this on pc and the game performance seems a bit shit compared to Origins which I was able to run at higher settings. Is anyone on pc experiencing frame drops sometimes? i7 6700k 1080 16gb

    Don't think I can be arsed with all that if I have the choice.

    Later on in the game do you have to choose to fight for the Athenians or the Spartans? I'm only level 13 at the moment and now off to Athens. This game is freaking massive!
