great!

first of all i love the gameplay. it offers something different from the traditional shooter mechanics since you also have 2 tentacles to grab and slash enemies in half. the story is great too and there is no need to play the first game, it all gets explained to you. the game doesnt revolutionise the genre but it is really great fun and i still like to fire it up from time to time to get all the abilities. if you like games that make you feel like a badass while providing a good challenge this is definitely for you! at the price that it is right now i can only recommend it!!

great and goofy 80s shooter with far cry 3 mechanics.

Obbag | May 24, 2013 | Review of Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon

so this far cry 3 spin off does not have anything in common with the original story wise but the gameplay has not really changed. you are a super soldier who is able to run fast without wearing out and can jump from any hight. the takedowns and other abilities are the same as in far cry 3, the difference being that many of them are available to you from the start. like in the original the gunplay is lots of fun, the story is hilarious (i like it a lot more than far cry 3s) and if you dig 80s action flicks you are gonna love this. the voice acting is top notch and the 80s synth music is even better! for this pricepoint you cant do anything wrong, i only suggest if you just finished far cry or been playing it a lot that you wait with this one for a while since the gameplay is practicly the same and it would be a shame if you could not appretiate it as a new experience.

Most fun shooter i played in a long time!

Obbag | May 24, 2013 | Review of Far Cry 3

so until a few years ago i only played fps shooters but then got kind of bored with them and found that nearly none of them offered anything new. the last one i really enjoyed was deus ex and thats been out a while. when i first saw far cry 3 it seemed to me like it could be a lot of fun and i gotta say thats really what it is: fun. like extremely fun. the abilities you get after some time are great and the further you get into the game the more of a badass your charakter gets. you swim up to them and dreg them into the water, jump on one guy und instantly knife the other one down that stands next to him, etc. you can play it rambo style or take a more stealthy approach, you decide. a friend of mine made it his mission to beat the game only with a knife :) the only thing i find somehow forgettable and kinda blunt is the story: you and your friends get kidnapped on vacation, you get split up and find them one after the other. there is some well written dialogue and some cool characters but all in all its pretty basic stuff. but like i said the gameplay is top notch, many far cry 2s flews have been ironed out so get right into it! it is a must have for me :)
