Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon
8 March 2014
Conclusion: It’s a game that has to be endured to see the best content - one where the satisfaction comes not from the act of playing it, but rather from watching the world and listening to the characters along the way.
Review: Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon blends modern with retro, and a healthy dose of ridiculous

Excerpt: Remember Back to the Future 2 and its hilarious, technologically advanced look at the year 2015? That is essentially Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon ; an 80's representation of the year 2007, complete with neon lights, bad guys in motorcycle helmets, laser weapons, an incredibily bad awesome synth...
Excerpt: It was almost too perfect for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon to be confirmed on April Fool’s Day. Blood Dragon may be the dumbest game you’ve ever played. You’ll throw dice to distract super-soldiers, fight cybernetic sharks and heal yourself by welding your robotic arm.
Conclusion: Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a great experience that manages to take the impressive mechanics from Far Cry 3, like shooting or exploring, and packages them in a love letter to 1980s sci-fi action movies.
Pros: +Great retro-themed story, +Impressive first-person shooter open world mechanics, +Plenty of hilarious moments
Cons: -Blood Dragon AI is a bit erratic, -Level progression doesn't allow for player choices, -Weapons feel underwhelming at first
Conclusion: It’s a shame that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was forced to be a type of game it clearly isn’t. A game just called “Blood Dragon,” free of its open-world tropical heritage, would have given developers the flexibility they needed to do their vision justice.
Excerpt: Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was initially announced on April Fools’ Day, and the absurdity of the concept led many people to think that it was a joke. As it turns out, it is a joke. That’s not a statement on its quality, but rather on its intent.
