The Just Cause game series is known for having the largest maps for "sandbox"-type games. The playable area of JC1 is 1'025 km2 and JC2 is 1'035.55 km2. JC3 is about 45 by 45 kilometers, making it about 2'025 km2. In some promotional materials and interviews it's reported to be "the size of Panau" and in others "just over". Just Cause 4 will reportedly be the same size as JC1, however this could be a false report to surprise us later.
Just Cause games provide in-game maps (in the PDA), but the map in Just Cause does not provide info about settlement names and in some places it's difficult to distinguish a military base from a village. The main complaint is the lack of a player controlled map marker, which makes navigation difficult. The map in Just Cause 2 has more features, but there's no accurate way to set the map marker, causing all seemingly accurate co-ordinates to be inaccurate by about +/- 5 m. Just Cause 3 uses real world co-ordinates.
