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!
I bought this game when it was on discount on GMG and so surprisingly good, in fact, that had I known, I would not have held out for a discount. The game is solid because it is highly immersive with lots of variety. Before writing on, I have 100% completed this game under medium difficulty in under 10 hours (all achievements). The story was very fun and successfully relays the ‘80s movies vibe. The over-the-top story really helps with the immersion because you know you are a super commando and you are supposed to be able to rampage and take much damage and not die. This is opposed to the original (far cry 3) where the normal guy main character just goes on to massacre a whole island of people. The gameplay is solid with a lot of variety. The game allows you to take a guns-ablazing approach or you can stealthily disable alarms and pick off the enemy one by one (somewhat reminds me of metal gear solid 2). There are many types of weapons, from stealthy melee, standard rifles to miniguns (and death-rays!). There are sufficient locations that encourage different types of game play from outposts, laboratories, and even offshore platforms and ships. Also there are dragons in the game. One thing that could be said may be relatively the short-length, but I think it’s actually a strength because it lets the game end on a high before any hint of repetition or fatigue. I wholeheartedly recommend this game, even at the full price. Nothing is ever perfect but this game is realy close... 90/100. PS: A little introduction to my gaming preferences, I mainly play first person games, e.g. CS:GO, Skyrim, Killing Floor, as well as RTS like Starcraft 2.
