Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Hands-On Preview | Jumping The (Cyber) Shark

Dealspwn writes: It's clearly built on Far Cry 3's DNA. Despite being a downloadable marketplace title destined for Steam, the PSN and XBLA, you'll explore an expansive patch of open world real estate, liberate garrisons, commandeer vehicles and hunt all manner of dangerous wildlife.

But now, the whole thing has been punched up to 11... or should that be 1981. Instead of a displaced party boy, you play as Rex "Power" Colt, a Mark IV cyborg commando hammed up by none other than Aliens and Terminator star Michael Biehn. Rather than a lush paradise, we'll romp around a neon-soaked 80s blockbuster movie set, populated by an army of overblown extras wielding cheap props cobbled together from bits of old vacuum cleaner. And the wildlife? Enormous glowing dragons who shoot omega-lasers out of their eyes, and can be tamed to your advantage by feeding them the cybernetic hearts ripped from your fallen foes. (Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
