Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
Is it a game? Is it an action movie? Is it a shooter? YES!
When I say that I have been waiting for a game like this for years, I’m not exaggerating for a split second.
The year is 2007 and it’s announced as “the future”. This game is set in a 80s view of the year 2007 and it really has everything. Cheesy one liners, funky 80s music, cyborgs, robots and much more. Literally everything you were dreaming about as a kid in the 80s can be found in this game.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was announced as a DLC for the Far Cry 3 game but it turns out that this game is a stand alone. To put it simple, you don’t need the original Far Cry 3 game to be able to play this expansion.
Before I tell you what the storyline is and how it works I’m going to show you the trailer of the game, just because it is so fantastic!
The world is suffering the aftermath of a nuclear war. You play as Rex, a very American cyborg soldier. Together with his partner Spider he travels to an island to investigate a man named Colonel Sloan. When you confront Sloan he kills Spider and knocks you out. Some time later you are woken up by Sloan’s assistant Dr. Darling. Darling, who refuses to work any longer for Sloan, teams up with Rex and they plot to overthrow Sloan’s plan to return the planet to it’s prehistoric state.
Chances are that you have already heard about this game since it has made the news. Before the game was released, hackers managed to steal this game from ubisoft. Ofcourse they did not stop there, they also made it available for people to download. You can imagine Ubisoft wasn’t too happy about this.
In any case, the game was officially released on the 1st of may 2013 and it is now available for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
Just one remark about this game, don’t take it too seriously. It’s just good old 80s scifi shoot-em up action!
As a warm up I give you some in game footage
