    For that price, fucking get it.

    Amazing fun, even if you just play the first few missions and dick around the rest of the time.

    Yep, get it. Just run around causing mayhem.... the next best thing to the rampage missions in GTA.

    I think its better.

    Nothing says awesome like strapping yourself to a gas canister and riding it into the sunset as an oil rig explodes behind you!

    I jumped a lot between GTA5 and JC2 (I was late to JC2), and felt so restricted in GTA. Ditto when I got the HD re-release of GTA5 and played JC3.

    Once you're parachuting/wingsuiting/grappling/steal-a-jetting around in pure freedom, GTA's "drive somewhere" feels like I'm trapped in slow motion.

    I agree.. once you get the parachute and grapple, you can effectively fly, for free, and just loiter over targets with nil consequence. Just so much fun picking off targets and grenading bigger targets with all that explosively eye-candy.

    Whilst true, GTA 5 feels way more alive and immersive.

    Just Cause 3 is quite bland and undetailed and samey everywhere. Good fun though.

    GTA series is extremely polished, so no surprises really. It's a huge franchise.

    Oh for sure. GTA is more of a "cynical life simulator", and also has 50 times the people and budget.

    Compare to JC3, where their development motto was "fun beats realistic". It was never intended to offer any sort of realistic immersion, only to be silly fun.
