IGN- Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Review

IGN:Blood Dragon’s playful focus on humor, nostalgia, and self-aware absurdity allows it to delve into a subject far more important than African arms races or tropical sociopaths: Video games are really, really fun. This comical, explosive shooter takes everything that makes Far Cry 3's gunplay great and dresses it in the kind of wit and over-the-top fun that Duke Nukem Forever is so desperately missing. Blood Dragon is a different beast – and it’s something you shouldn’t miss.

The story is too old to be commented.

IMOO FC3 is the most over hyped game of the year, the story is juvenile, the gameplay repetitive and mostly straight from Assassins Creed, only in first person

climb tower--clear base--climb tower--clear base----

is this the standard of "great game" now? a formulaic rinse/repeat check box experience?

if Watch Dogs is based on "hack network---clear zone" I'm going to burst my veins (Fist of the North Star style)

Nullifying what makes a game unique into a "Rinse & Repeat" formula can be applied to any game, including some of the greates games there are:
Mario: Jump platforms. Kill Goombas. Jump platforms. Kill Goombas.
Gears of War: Flush enemies. Take Cover. Flush enemies. Take Cover.
Halo: Shoot enemies. Drive vehicles. Shoot enemies. Drive vehicles.
Half Life 2: Shoot enemies. Solve gravity puzzles. Shoot enemies. Solve gravity puzzles.
Uncharted: Shoot enemies. Traverse platforms. Shoot enemies. Traverse platforms.
Pac-Man: Run away from ghosts. Hunt ghosts. Run away from ghosts. Hunt ghosts
Splinter Cell: Hide in shadows and watch patterns. Stealth takedown guards. Hide in shadows and watch patterns. Stealth takedown guards (not to mention the M&E formula of the last game)
Diablo: Kill enemies. Loot corpses and buy/sell equipment. Kill enemies. Loot corpses and buy/sell equipment.
Starcraft: Build and guard base. Launch attack on enemy. Build and guard base. Launch attack on enemy.

Should I go on?

Mario: are playing the same level the whole game?
Gears of War: don't like it
Halo: levels, environments and enemies change, and the story is good.
Half Life 2: !!!
Uncharted:has more gameplay variety, great level set-ups and set-pieces. and the characters are great.
Pac-Man: you pay 60$ for this?
Splinter Cell: don't like it
Diablo: do you kill 3 enemy types the whole game using the same method?
Starcraft: !!!

I loved the FC3 intro and first part of the game, but dumb plot twist after dumb plot twist turned my initial excitement into bitter disappointment.
