Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Review | GIZORAMA

GIZORAMA - Twelve-year-old boys from the 80’s and early 90’s are pumping their fists in the air because they know in 2013 they will get to play a game that represents their childhood that is still burnt into their retinas via cathode ray tubes. A period that can easily be summed up as the VHS-era had a particular style in action movies. Robots, cyborgs, lasers, nuclear holocausts, and more neon than a red light district was the norm. The future was always in the year 199X or early millennium and the stars were one man armies of mayhem.

Tired of action games taking themselves so seriously, Ubisoft has brought forth Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon which calls back to that bygone era of action. Blood Dragon is filled with tongue in cheek references, spoofs, and parodies of all the fan favorite quirks that fill that very special genre. If 12-year-old boys think it is cool, then by god it is probably in Blood Dragon creating an adrenaline infused wet dream and a standalone downloadable title based on the Far Cry 3 game. Think of it as a reskin that basically has the same mechanics and underlying systems powering it but more condensed and with a whole bunch more neon, smoke, and testosterone. (Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Xbox 360) 5/5
