Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon First Impressions

Even the title screen is so 80's themed

Even the title screen is so 80’s themed

When I was first told about this game by B-Money, I got totally excited, and now, the game finally dropped on April 30th. on PSS for $15.00, and XBLA for 1200 MP.  (see my original post https://justwroteablog.com/2013/04/16/far-cry-3-blood-dragon-dlc/).  I finally was able to get my hands on it earlier today, and I just finished up playing the first 2 levels.  All I have to say is, it’s cheesy.  So cheesy, it’s amazing.  It’s a very weird sensation, seeing 8-bit style graphics on the cut scenes, (imagine NES)  and yet, I’m hearing 80’s style post apocalyptic movie dialog and music.  I did some capturing, but it’s a tad late, so I will divulge more info and some footage and screens tomorrow. (or in this case later).

There is a Demo available on the PlayStation Store if you are weary about spending the $15.00 on it.  How can you go wrong though.  It is based off of Far Cry 3 (at least the game engine), and it’s made by the same people.  I’ve bought games that were less money, and were not as good.  If anything, get it for the cheese factor.  Right from the get go, it’s entertaining.  More soon on this!

Load screens are hilarious too. It's these little things that really separate a good game from a great game.

  1. I’m very much enjoying this game so far. I like how it not only pokes fun at cheesy 80s action movies, but even modern day video games tropes. Make sure to check out the weapon descriptions in the menu. They are hilarious.
