Rico Rodriguez is back to blow another desperate and delusional despot into the sunset

RICO Rodriguez is one of my all time favourite video game characters. He gives no fucks. If there’s something to blow up, he’ll blow it up. If there’s a dictator to take down, he’ll do it single-handedly, albeit with his trusty grapple hook and wing suit. And chaos seems to follow Rodriguez about. Or is it Rodriguez that pursues chaos? Either way, playing a character like the always-seemingly-well-connected Rodriguez is never disappointing.

Just Cause 4, to be clear however, is not the next generation of Just Cause games. There are no major changes to game mechanics, no real innovation in story and, graphically, it doesn’t jump out from the screen as I’d expect it to. Not to say that it’s not pretty, it’s just a bit disappointing. Honestly though, Just Cause has only ever been about one thing. Explosions and destruction. As a result then, Just Cause 4 doesn’t disappoint.
