Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a standalone open world first person shooter. The game was developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. The game was released on May 1st, 2013. The story follows super soldier Rex to a post-apocalyptic world following a nuclear war between America and Russia. He finds that Colonel Sloan has gone rogue, and Rex has to stop him. Is this trip into the future worth it or not?

Graphics-While the color scheme works in this game’s favor, it also works against this game’s favor. This is because the stereotyping of using neon colors to make a dystopian setting is really cliché and we’ve seen it before. The Blood Dragons themselves will make you wonder if you stepped into Jurassic Park in the future, but they look awesome in their glowing glory.

Sound-The sound in this game is pretty much run of the mill, with the typical gunshots, grunts and groans. The sound effects the cyborgs make when dead is pretty cool, but sounds too quiet and could’ve used some more work.

Gameplay-Gameplay remains mostly the same as Far Cry 3, with less of an emphasis on RPG elements, but gaining experience points remains intact. One downside to the gameplay is that when you level up, you don’t get a choice of skill to choose. You’re given a specific skill when you reach the next level.

Humor-Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has some elements of humor inserted into the game, and unfortunately, it doesn’t work in this game’s favor. The humor is really dry, and the jokes aren’t very creative.

Overall-Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a solid game that has humor (although very weak), and enough content to keep you busy for hours.

Score: 4/5
