Far Cry 3

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Far Cry 2 and I have a very special relationship, as I don't think I've ever enjoyed a game that I hated so much. I've played it many times, loving and loathing every second of it. For as much as it infuriated me with its glitches and stodgy pacing, it continued to delight me with its promise of close-to-the-bone survival in a uniformly hostile savanna.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon PS3 Review

About.com
16 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Image © Ubisoft "Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon" feels like it could be a much longer, more intense game and still succeed. That's something that can rarely be said about anything you can currently download on the PSN. Most PSN titles add to on to something you already know and love or stand beautifully on their own (" Journey ," " The Walking Dead ").

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon (Multi-Platform) Review

10 May 2013
  • Summary: Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a triumph of ridiculous creative energies, and plays just as fun as its incredible concept would imply. The combat and levelling system may not be as detailed or complex as Far Cry 3, but the main elements that made the original game a great experience are still here to be enjoyed, with an added heaping helping of cheesiness and over-the-top insanity that will appeal to anyone who claims to be a fan of the sci-fi action genre.

  • Excerpt: If you’re a child of the 70s or 80s, you may miss those cheesy, tongue-in-cheek, ridiculously silly themes found in many action movies. Nowadays, it seems like such films (even the ones obviously designed to be absurd) take themselves far too seriously, and you might miss the corny innocence of the good ol’ days.

Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon review

GamesRadar
30 April 2013
  • Conclusion: "It's a collection of the best 80s action movie cliches, wrapped around Far Cry 3's deliciously violent gameplay" "Cut-scenes, done using Contra-style 2D character models, are incredibly well observed" "You need to kill or remove Blood Dragons to claim outposts" "The jokes never get stale, and the game definitely goes out with a bang...
  • Pros: Fantastic retro style and music, It's a decent chunk of game, Genuinely funny dialogue
  • Cons: Needs more genuinely new features

  • Summary: Great 1980s movie montages featured plucky underdogs, perhaps played by Sylvester Stallone, or maybe Ralph Macchio, demonstrating their determination to triumph over the forces of communism, bullying, or stodgy adults who don't believe in the power of young love. They were accompanied by properly cheesy pop hits, possibly performed by Joe Esposito, or maybe Deniece Williams, creating a wonderful audiovisual time capsule that could have only originated in that fabulous...
  • Pros: Hysterical dialogue and collectibles, Lots of smart references to 1980s pop culture, Taking on blood dragons is always a delight, Smart levels and missions make for rewarding stealth, A lot of terrific open-ended action for a great value
  • Cons: A few enemy behavior quirks, Some crass jokes land with a thud

  • Conclusion: “Do you know the definition of…”, ah hell, is it really worth repeating? After countless ads pegging Far Cry 3 for the theme of “insanity”, I’m happy to share it fits the title perfectly, but sadly, I’m not quite sure in the way the developers intended. Meeting the criteria for the franchise (jungles, guns, wild animals), FC3 follows a group of friends during a vacation on an island in the pacific that takes a turn for the worst when crazy pirates kidnap them… and I mean...
