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

Thunderbolt Games
20 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Repeating well-worn clichés isn’t an inherently novel idea. The cliché-ridden ‘80s throwback has become a cliché in itself and is so overdone that it takes something special to stand out. Mostly the videogame homages are in the form of the decade’s games and done by small teams. They are love letters to 8-bit design, all the good memories of a simpler time made current through a humble development process.

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

411mania.com
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.

  • Excerpt: Few game developers pull off good satire. Sure, there are plenty of examples of tongue-in-cheek humor in video games but not many dedicate themselves to ridiculing an entire cultural era, either intentionally or unintentionally. This is exactly what Ubisoft has done with their 80s action movie knock-off in the form of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

Ubisoft Loves The '80s

Game Informer
30 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Concept: Borrow the basic elements of Far Cry 3 to create a standalone adventure themed around ‘80s action films Graphics: From laser beams and neon skies to cyber heroes and Star Wars-style box art, the visuals scream 1980s Sound: Power Glove’s synth-driven soundtrack fits the aesthetic perfectly Playability: Far Cry 3’s stellar controls drive this unique offshoot Entertainment: Repetitive side missions and base captures slow the momentum of the otherwise hilarious...

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...
