Amazing for the price.TETfromLondon | Dec. 16, 2013 | See all TETfromLondon's reviews »
Blood Dragon is a game based on the original Far Cry 3, reusing may assets such as the landscape and vehicles. However, it does a great job of re-skinning these things. The landscape now has a purple-red colour. The animals are often cyber-versions of themselves or alternatively zombified versions. It looks and feels very nice. There have been minor gameplay changes. Your character moves far faster, jump higher and can survive falls from great heights. Their is also a new arsenal of weapons available, all of which are fun to use.
The game is very self aware, parodying cheesy 80s sci-fi movies, with over the top voice acting and plot and 80s sci-fi style music. You play Rex Power Colt, voiced by Michael Biehn. The dial has been turned all the way up to 11 for this game, and the only major criticism I have is that it gets a little old by the end, especially the looping music. Still, you will get at least 15 hours of gameplay out of this, which is amazing value for such a cheap game.

If you loved Far Cry 3, you will love this! It is a world full of frequently funny dialogue and TONS of 80s references and the enemy AI is considerably better than in FC3. The mechanics mirror Far Cry 3 and so are brilliant, however the addition of new weapons is a nice touch and makes the game stand out. For this price (£11) you should get it!
It is a real Far Cry!ccroatian | Sept. 17, 2013 | See all ccroatian's reviews »
The title is a bit misleeding but this is the only bad thing I can say. Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is fun all the way, until the end of the story and even further. It is absolutely not serios, that is why everything is simpler than it is in Far Cry 3 and that is a good thing. I am just a little sad that the story is about 4 hours long only, but you can spend even more time with killing and collecting televisions and videotapes for guns or upgrades. I just miss the multiplayer option...but I think they didn't make one because it would be the sam as Far Cry 3 multiplayer...but I think theyhave the talent for making one. Oh and the soundtrack and voice acting is brilliant! This game worth every cent or penny.

as stated above, it's far cry 3 on steroids set in the 80's.
100% in around 8 hrs with a story that makes only a lick of sense but you love it because of it. It gives you a task, you go kick the butt out of it.
The usual collectathon upgrades weapons and collect stuff for collection sake.
Highly enjoyable game

After I heard about this game, I knew I had to play it. I had just finished FC3 and everything about this game seemed wonderful. It delivered on most aspects.
As a satire, the game is pretty funny. The music is decent and the mechanics are obviously on the level of FC3. However, I feel it has a high love/hate ratio due to the colour palette used (dark blue, red and neon colours) and the balance of the weapons is completely off. This makes for great fun minigun sessions and exploding sniper headshots, but I can imagine it's not made for everyone.
Even though it is meant as a satire, the story is pretty weak, the enemies are not that interesting and many of the quests are boring.
All in all, the game offers a great $15 shoot-everything-you-see with neon explosions and silly humour.
