Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon review

Review: Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon blends modern with retro, and a healthy dose of ridiculous

GameZone

  • 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 soundtrack, and hilariously retro cutscenes that would have been at home in the NES era. So what the heck is Blood Dragon all about, and why is it called Far Cry 3 ?

  • 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. But here’s the kicker - it’s better for it.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Review (PC)

Softpedia
19 May 2013
  • 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. The story is cheesy, the graphics are kitschy, and the hero is one-dimensional, but the game retains the tongue-in-cheek feel throughout the whole single-player campaign and that's what makes it a great title.
  • 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

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon (PC) - Review

VGChartz
5 May 2013
  • 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. It exists to parody the entire decade between 1980 and 1990, as well as action games in general. Here, as in many things, it is hit and miss.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

  • Conclusion: Fueling creative energy with frayed Neuromancer paperbacks and worn out Terminator VHS tapes doesn't typically qualify as a safe investment, but Blood Dragon absolves its endearing risk by leveraging Far Cry 3 as its base and then running away to celebrate 80's cinematic excess. Ubisoft wins, Blood Dragon's creative team wins, Michael Biehn wins, and, most importantly, the consumer wins. Why can't all games be like this?

Slay the Dragon | Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Review

  • Conclusion: While it is easy to write this expansion off as a re-skin of Far Cry 3 , there is much more here than just the visual appeal. If you ever loved an action movie on VHS tape, Blood Dragon has something for you. Whether that be over-the-top action, cheesy one-liners, a neon-highlighted, nuclear-devastated future or a sound track fit for Europe ‘s next album.
