A Very Good Time

Blood Dragon runs surprisingly well and looks great with my Windows Vista 64-bit, my Radeon HD 6850, and 2.6Ghz quad core. Even on medium-high the game will look quite decent, partially due to the crt monitor filter that gives the game that retro look. Blood Dragon is an 80's throwback with an improved plot over its predecessor since Far Cry 3 goes from "I've never killed anymore before." to mass murder with an AK in an hour.

Expect neon, collectables all over the map, fast-paced 80's action, lasers, adorably awful one-liners, silly gun customization, cybernetic enhancements, style, and explosions. This game will probably take most people 6-8 hours. In my case, I just took over five since I moved very quickly. It's fun enough to consider replaying and short enough to be able to do so. The game uses its time well, in my experience.

In conclusion, Blood Dragon is a surprisingly entertaining and solid title that hopefully receives another entry. Maybe one for every new Far Cry?
