Playing Far Cry® 3 Blood Dragon does not require a copy of Far Cry® 3.
"Blood Dragon is a different beast – and it’s something you shouldn’t miss." - IGN.com
Far Cry® 3: Blood Dragon is THE Kick-Ass Cyber Shooter.
Welcome to an 80’s vision of the future. The year is 2007 and you are Sargent Rex Colt, a Mark IV Cyber Commando. Your mission: get the girl, kill the baddies, and save the world.
Experience every cliché of a VHS era vision of a nuclear future, where cyborgs, blood dragons, mutants, and Michael Biehn (Terminator, Aliens, Navy Seals) collide.

What seemed to be an april fools joke turned out an excellent shooter tributing the VHS era. Cheesy one liners, cyborgs, neon lights, and 'MMURICA! The soundtrack is very fitting and so is Michael Biehn (Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss) the voice actor of the hero.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a weird addition to the series, but it's not to be taken seriously. It doesn't have any connection to previous games obviously nor with the ones that came later. You feel like you play as Robocop with Blood Dragon, or something similar. It's weird, but it's totally fun. The 80's feel is really strong with this one, as you can see. There's humour, there's action, but don't expect it to be 100% exactly the same like the previous ones. Nonetheless, it's a short game, feels a bit repetitive at times, but fortunately for 14.99$ is kind of worth it. I wouldn't suggest it in it's full price always, but for a good sale around 5$, is a go-go. There's laser guns, there's 80's futuristic action, but it's not a classic Far Cry game, don't fool yourself. Don't take it seriously, and you will have more fun. 4 stars from me. It's packed with lots of guns and mayhem, but I would prefer to play Far Cry 3 instead.
We all remember old movies about the fantastyc of the future, cyber-fighters, superheroes. So this game will allow for a moment dip into the nostalgia, for a fun way to have fun in y shooting skirmishes. Almost the whole game is filled with references to other games. The whole seriousness of the game is intertwined with the comicalness of ridiculing many of our familiar things. Slightly black humor adds only raisins to what is happening. Madness? - there is no future with lasers and neon.
If you have to summarize the game in one sentence I would say that Blood Dragon is a unique tribute to the culture of the 80s and a real gem for players brought up in those days. The Bloody Dragon is a much smaller than Far Cry 3 but the fun factor and great humor makes this game must have for FPP fans.
It's a neon party out there and you're the lovechild of Terminator and Robocop. By the end of the game you are a killing machine and become a Blood Dragon (sort of)
