I'd say FC3 was going for a realistic style, however in FC3 Blood Dragon you are in what seems to be entirely different world, with animals you won't find on our planet. You play as a cyborg and fight robots. This here is the reason why some people dislike the game. The thing is, this game is very different from other Far Cry games, so different that it plays by it's own rules and people shouldn't put it near Far Cry 3. Actually if you forget the "Far Cry 3" part of the title, you too will find out how awesome this game really is. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is very different from every other Far Cry game I've played, the action was great and I enjoyed the game a lot till the end, that is after I forgot the whole Far Cry 3 expectations I had because of the title.
Blood Dragon came from out of nowhere and turned out to be better than the main game. I love the Far Cry series, but Blood Dragon surpassed my enjoyment of Far Cry 3, which had previously been my favorite Far Cry. Everything about it was fresh and original. The love the neon graphics, the game still retained the Far Cry open world, just not as massive and not as chock full of content. But quality over quantity. Blood Dragon feels like a totally different game than Far Cry. It's funny, has a great soundtrack, an awesome finale, and it's just plain fun to run around hunting Blood Dragons. Everything about this game brought me back to the days I spent in arcades and neon vibes of the 80's. This game totally nailed the nostalgic factor and really set the bar for what spin offs and expansion packs should be, rather than the terrible DLC that developers are nowadays forcing upon us. Be creative like this and people will want your DLC. Absolutely this game is a must buy for everyone. Totally worth it.
Blood Dragon is a total tribute to corny 80s sci-fi action movies. That is awesome and it really does breathe that vibe throughout the entire experience. However, the game itself is just kinda boring. From the missions to the side missions to the exploring, there isn't much there and what is there feels like you have already experienced it before. The game really does feel like what it is...a reskin of far cry 3. Pick it up in a sale.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a cyberpunk shooter that combines elements from 80's flicks such as Predator, Aliens, Blade Runner, Commando and much, much more. If you liked one or more of those movies, you will absolutely love FarCry 3: Blood Dragon. The gameplay is exactly the same as FarCry 3, but reskinned more or less. You have a smaller island to explore, complete with lazer-dinosaurs, lazer-tigers, cyber sharks, and yeah, you get the idea. There are new guns, like a plasma mini-gun, a lazer assault-rifle, the pistol from Robocop, a purple bow, and a giant flamethrower. Prepare for huge amounts of awesome one liners and puns during combat. The soundtrack is pretty awesome too. Experience a synthesized-tech beat while you slaughter your way through cyber commandos and other ridiculous variations of the local wildlife. If you like or love any of the things I've just mentioned, buy this game right now. Do it. Overall, FarCry 3 : Blood Dragon is a reskinned version of the main game, with 80's extras. The great music, awesome cutscenes and ridiculous gameplay will keep you hooked (and wowed). 10 / 10
Mix modern shooter with old school cinematics, add tons of humor, then add B class movies story and shake it with some "dragons" ;) Here you go this is FC3 Blood Dragon!
