I've investigated the issue and found that if the game is not running at 30 FPS or 60 FPS, the mouse camera (when moved) will drop frames.

So I have have finished Just Cause 3's story mode and played for about 27 hours in total. Here is a small review from me.

Let me start off by saying that I was hugely disappointed by Just Cause 3 and after finishing its story mode and playing for a reasonable amount of time I can safely say that JC3 is inferior in every aspect when compared to JC2, the only exception being the visuals and the game's graphics fidelity. I am or more precisely I was a huge fan of the Just Cause franchise and JC2 was and still is one of my favourite open world games. It had so much to offer in terms of content and replayability. Not even talking about its brilliant performance and very impressive visuals. The game feels like it was in development for at least three years where as JC3 felt like it was developed over a course of 18 months. To me the inferiority of JC3 was a big let down as I thought the developers would improve upon the already existing perfect formula but somehow they managed to do things even worse and those things include the following.

I begin by saying that I really enjoyed the story in JC2 and didnt understand the criticism that it got. It was hilarious, entertaining, offered variety and was overall an oustanding experience which was presented in a coherent way. People might not have liked it due to its lack of seriousness but this is not Mafia. The story of Just Cause 3 was very mediocre mainly due to the weay it was executed and its length. Just Cause 2 had factions whose influence on territories you had to expand and build relationships with their leaders, helping them in various tasks and missions. In Just Cause 3 you simply come back to your homeland, meet your old friends which have either little to no backstory at all and start fighting against the only enemy who is the dictator and his forces, while you represent the rebels, simply boring. All the missions are the same, go there, help the rebel forces beat the ones of the dictator and see the scale to turn in your favor, then follow those pipes and destroy those generators. Repeat, repeat, repeat. In just Cause 2 you had to destroy specific strategic locations, kidnap key people, hold off waves of enemies at certain basements and safely extract characters which may aid you in your journey. JC2's story was also significantly longer than the one of JC3 and consisted of way more missions which were all unique where as the ones in JC3 were not only less but also gave you the same repetitive tasks. JC3's story is definitely inferior in pretty much every regard when compared to the one of JC2.

Performance, oh my god what have they done. Just Cause 2 is one of the best optimized games out there with one of the most consistent and steady framerates, I have never dropped 60 fps in any scenario while playing JC2 on maxed out settings. In JC3 I drop frames just by repositioning my character or looking somewhere else, constant drops in frames would they be minor or major, in addition to that there is also hitching and stuttering whenever travelling or using the hook. Simply awful, and all that at medium to high settings, so its not even maxed out. Performance wise JC3 is simply horrendous and this time around it does not affect PC only, the kind of performance issues that Playstation and Xbox users are experiencing are even worse.

Vehicles. Not only does JC3 feature less vehicles than JC2. The handling of every vehicle type would that be aerial, naval or ground is significantly worse in terms of responsiveness, maneuverability and performance. In JC2 all vehicles except cars handled magnificently, cars had some issues with breaking but other than that they were ok. In JC3 all the vehicles handle like utter crap, while you can get used to them, the experience is simply awful which is unfortunate for someone like me, in a game like Just Cause vehicles play a major role. JC2 also had very unique vehicles like the reversed wings fighter jet and the insurgencie's vehicles which come with very unique upgrades and features. in JC3 we only have that helicopter with a shield which is lame and looks hideous, other than that there is nothing special or unqiue. Hopefully those paid DLCs will bring some neat and unusual vehicles cause otherwise I will be even more disappointed.

Graphics in JC3 are impressive and represent the world rather well but some effects and rendering techniques are outrageously bad, the rendering distance is very small and everything that is at least 25 meters away from you misses textures and is blurred out until you literally face it with your character. Water however and the vegetation as well as its density look very advanced and impressive even on not maxed out settings. JC2 however had better effects, when example floating above water at a small distance in an aerial vehicle the effect of the wind on the water is inferior than the one found in Just Cause 2. Some other effects as well such as colissions and explosions of vehicles, those in JC3 are unreralistic and overly exaggerated.

World. The world of Just Cause 2 was not only huge but also offered an immense amount of variety, it had different biomes, unique locations, very detailed cities and bases as well as many more neat features such as verticality, different weather conditions and unique lighting settings. Everything was populated and contained something, there were no useless empty spaces. All the continents and islands had something interesting and unique to discover and liberate. The island full of japanese soldiers who thought WW2 was still going on was a fantastic touch along the tower which jammed all the vehicles which would approach the island. The big island found in JC3 is simply a lame and empty vulcan with nothing to discover. JC3 consists only of two biomes, the mediterranean and the snowy mountains one which is lame and features nothing but mountains, repetitive ground texturing and slight amount of snow as well as thousands of pines and nothing else. The cities in JC3 are all the same unlike in JC2 which are all unique and feature differents types of structures. The capital in JC3 is a joke, its simply a town like any other with two big skyscrapers, thats it. JC2 had more than 4 biomes including, tropical, sub-tropical, desert and high altitude grounds which all featured unique vegetation, buildings, structures, ground textures and habitants. JC2's world was fuller, offered more variety and was overall more unique and representative.

I am done with Just Cause 3 for now, I will re-install it and give it another try once I get a new GPU and the vehicles DLCs come out which as it seems wont be anytime soon. I was left hugely disappointed by the game.

Pretty much my feelings also (although performance was fine for me). Too short, and not enough variety/replayability.
post #154 of 202
Yeah I am playing it now and I agree with your post cybertox. The vehicles turn like they are in slow motion which is aggravating me to no end but the graphics don't look to bad on my 40 inch 4k monitor. It almost seems like this is just cause 2.5 and does feel like they rushed it out to fast.

Guys Nvidia addressed the Maxwell memory bug with drivers 361.60 WHQL.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1587599/nvidia-geforce-hotfix-driver-361-60/0_50

Instead of memory running at 3305 MHz, it runs at my 24/7 OC of 3850 MHz. And this gave me around 5-10% extra performance @ 2715x1527 and maxed settings.

The Air, Sea and Land DLCs are minor expansions which add new vehicles and challenges, not sure whether they add additional missions or any other type of content. The Air DLC will include new aerial vehicles and challenges, same goes for the other two.
