Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Review | The Game Effect

The game utilizes, criticizes, and references every ‘80s action movie trope imaginable, while retaining a degree of self-awareness that only exacerbates the absurdity. You command Sergeant Rex Power Colt through a story that consistently references a nuked Canada, threats from ‘The Reds,’ and the futuristic world of the year 2007. Just about every line of dialogue and every cut-scene (all of which get a very Sega Genesis vibe with 2D images that barely move) makes a reference to the ridiculousness of everything the game is. (Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 9/10

I found the atmosphere too dark and monotonous. Funny dialogue but i'd rather they put out a better effort for Far Cry DLC.

This game was not a DLC for Far Cry 3. This was a stand-alone spin-off from Far Cry 3, get your facts right. And for 15$ this game is so worth it.

I thought it was a pretty sick game, but nowhere near as in depth as far cry 3 was. The one liners and 80's theme really made it awesome, plus the fact that it was just a blast to play with all the ridiculous upgrades to weapons and your stats.

I hope we see more of these types of games in the future.

loved the game play, the one liners..

the last two missions were some of the best fun i have had in any video game.

if you are not an 80s kid, i can see how some may just "not get it"

deserves a full game.

the only issue i had with it was at times i wish there was a bit of daylight.
