In-depth Review: Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon - Electronic Theatre

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon plays off the back of Far Cry 3’s success, and a decade ago would’ve been sold as an expansion pack. However, here in the world of digital distribution it’s a standalone product, so one may wonder why Ubisoft decided to attach that frontline to the title: this is a new world with new characters and a new storyline entirely unrelated toElectronic Theatre Image that of Far Cry 3, so much so in fact that there are a couple of moments where it openly mocks it’s bigger brother. The reason then, must surely be one of marketing alone. Ubisoft may not have had the confidence to develop and distribute such a quirky title had it not been for the success of Far Cry 3, and so using that cannon has allowed the publisher to fire Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon into the retail channel. (Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 87/100
