Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Blood Dragons is a love-letter to b-movie sci-fi films from the 1980s. It is genius in its satirical take on the iconic sub-culture of the material itself as well as video games in general. Fans of action movies, the 80s, satire, or just goofy action games in general will fall in love with this game before the tutorial is completed.

The Pros: 

+Great sense of humor. 

+Sense of loyality its inspiration (80s action films).

+Same great gameplay of its predecessor (Far Cry 3). 

+Stunning visuals (both the neon in-game, and the 16-bit cut-scenes).

The Cons: 

-Character customization has been almost completely removed to make way for a straight forward leveling system (earn a level, get a new game-choosen ability).

Far Cry: Blood Dragon is a perfect, or rather the only, example of what fans of the 80s sci-fi/action b-movie genre have been hoping for out of video games for about the last 30 years. Of course that’s a pretty ridiculous standard for Ubisoft to try and live up to… but it was refreshing to see how serious, or rather not-serious, the team building the game took the project.

Ubisoft Announces Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, New Spin-Off Starring Michael Biehn

Opting to shake things up in a way never before expected, Ubisoft has announced further details for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. Once believed to be a potential April Fool’s Day joke based on how crazy the box art was (it had a laser eye shooting T-Rex for crying out loud), Far Cry 3 is indeed receiving a rather sizeable add-on/spin-off that almost seems like it would be better suited for the world of Saints Row.
