Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

D+PAD
10 May 2013
  • Conclusion: This is a downloadable game that dares to dream big and pulls it off by throwing caution to the wind and letting loose, but on a very solid base of gameplay mechanics. It’s Far Cry 3 with a cyborg hero, a new lick of paint and a heavy dose of imagination. Fans of the FPS genre and anyone with fond memories of the 1980’s owe it to themselves to experience the self-parody that is Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon

GameTrailers
30 April 2013
  • Excerpt: What happens to a dream deferred? Something to do with dehydration and fruit… so, what happens to an April Fool’s joke becoming a reality? With the Far Cry series, you get a cybernetic-fist in your face, retro-raunchy, hyper-violent, cyber-clad bootleg VHS to the 1980’s R-rated action movie and marketing power house of yore. You get Blood Dragon. Pastiche or parody, we felt the dragon’s roar would be best assessed in a manner and method reflecting its own nature.

Far Cry 3 Review

  • Excerpt: This generation has seen no lack of open-world games ever since The Elder Scrolls series showed devs the ropes with Oblivion. The biggest problem that open world games face is that the world often feels empty with only a few missions or a couple of side quests to do at any time. Ubisoft has tried to remedy that with its latest offering, Far Cry 3. Does it manage to succeed where many others, including the previous game in the series, have failed? Let’s find out.

Far Cry 3

Gaming Evolution

  • Conclusion: Far Cry 3 explores the world of Rook Island, a tropical locale that seems like a great vacation spot until you get there and have to fight for your life. It explores how a man can go from normal everyday living to a monster who relishes killing people, but in the back of his mind he’s doing it for a reason.

Far Cry 3 PS3 Review

  • Conclusion: Far Cry 3 Image © Ubisoft I thought for sure that any competition for the 2012 Game of the Year was over with the release of " Assassin's Creed III ." Sure, " Black Ops II " would be fun and I had high hopes for " Hitman: Absolution " (which were realized by that stellar title) but it never dawned on me that the last major game of the year, "Far Cry 3," would force me to reconsider my Best of the Year list. Yes, it's that good.

Crying For Some Bloody Good Fun

GIN
10 January 2013
  • Excerpt: The Far Cry series has always been an interesting one in the game industry, known as much as a technical showcase for over-the-top beauty as anything else. The Far Cry games have also been known for some deep gameplay flaws that keep it from being thought of in the same light as say, Assassin's Creed or Halo. Far Cry 3 follows these same patterns, but the technical impressiveness is much greater and the flaws thankfully far less than before.

Far Cry 3 PS3 Review

Console Obsession
12 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Despite some nasty bugs, I had a lot of love for Far Cry 2. Saying that, I can certainly understand why some didn’t take to its very dangerous Africa environment, with constant enemy attacks and little pause for breath. As sequels should, Far Cry 3 addresses many of the second games issues, and it can also be considered a return to the roots of the series.

The troubled paradise you explore is colorful and wild, enticing you to investigate its ravines and discover new ways to enjoy the open-world playground sprawling in front of you. This is a game that ignites the desire to complete every last challenge and check out every last icon on your map.
  • Pros: A huge tropical world stuffed with fun things to do, Ecology and unpredictable creatures make the world come alive, Stealth and action come together in rewarding ways, Role-playing elements and difficulty curve give a sense of momentum, Great structure leads you from one activity to the next
  • Cons: Some design quirks lead to minor frustrations, Certain story elements break the immersion
