This should be a Farcry with real Dinosaurs, real human enemies, cannibal tribes, and more lush green environments. There aren't any dinosaurs in this game. There are only 'blood dragons', boring robotic enemies, and annoying rave colors over a dead, grey, boring post-apocalyptic, tropical island environment.

I like how the pirates are already playing this and the people who paid for it are still waiting.

It looks like it has more appeal than the original far cry 3......I love the idea.

I'm going to be 30 this year so I should totally love this, but its not nearly as enjoyable as Far Cry 3...mainly because of the color scheme, you can barely even see the terrain. My favorite part is the games humor, but the color and lack of guns prevents me from getting into it, even with Michael Biehn.

So for me, it's a win and probable purchase with Blood Dragon and a major fail on the Flashback refake.

Hmmm. I find it very ironic that Ubisoft is releasing a Far Cry 80s spin-off with neon-filled, high contrast graphics, and at the same time is announcing a remake of the classic 80s platformer Flashback, with a graphical style that looks almost nothing like the original but is a lot more akin to Far Cry. Intential design switch-a-roo here possibly?! I love the look of Blood Dragon but if it comes at the expense of a far less inique, off cannon grahical style of a Flashback remake, it leaves me with pretty much no interest in the latter and a bittersweet taste in my mouth overall.

if you like the Kick ass Movies action of the 80 you must buy this game for sure.I see is only 15 bucks on Ubisoft Homepage.

If it has the same mechanics as Far Cry 3, then it's a must buy for me. Far Cry 3 is one of the funnest games I've played in a long time.

It's like a Duke Nukem Forever that doesn't suck. Instead of waiting 10 years to get the biggest disappointment in gaming history, we only have to wait a few months to get a piece of 80's in-your-face ass-kicking awesomeness. Ubisoft just reached game developer gold status in my books. Bravo!

All the kiddies totally missing the point of this game crack me up.

Am I going to be the first one to say it?

This looks AWFUL. Maybe it's the terrible pace of the video. Why does it look so weird? The 80's? Where? Sounds like greedy developers trying desperately to be "hip". Dragons? Why? And what's with all the stealth. You want to play stealthy go play Splinter Cell. This is FPS country, son. Just shoot everything that moves. I've never understood the incentive of going out of your way to be "stealthy" when you can just shoot everything. DUMB.

Stop watching this and go to IGN preview done by Americans, who get the 80s nostalgia and highly appreciate the effort. Nothing against the British folk, but this is our 80s Terminator, Aliens, Commando, reboot. Oh and by the way its voiced by Micheal Biehne, ya know the Future Dad of John Conner, and only soldier who lives through Aliens.

I HATE IGN, BUT PLEASE GO WATCH THEIR PREVIEW, PROMISE IT WILL MAKE YOUR DAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's like Deus Ex meets Hotline Miami. Sucks. Whats with the weak cut scenes? Looks like Atari 2600 and then cut into the Far cry 3 graphics, obviously bad amateur content. Come on Ubisoft this is even below your standards.

Gave me a bit of a headache. I would have preferred an actual Far Cry 3 expansion or DLC.

Okay yeah I've never said this before, but I am really glad to have been born in the 90s. REFERENCES!!

So they've taken the FC3 engine, re-skinned it, and created a whole different game?

looks quite good fun, given the solidity of Ubi's FC3 engine and how much i enjoyed FC3, i'll definately give this a crack.

@Wahab_MinSeo

Its a Standalone game; if you look on the steam page it says this\

"Playing Far Cry® 3 Blood Dragon does not require a copy of Far Cry® 3."

@Wahab_MinSeo its a downloadable stand alone game.

@snaketus  because it's also on PS3?   I haven't played anything on the 360 in over 2 years.  I miss nothing.

@Psych0tr0n 

I can't tell if your serious, "weak cutscenes" in case you didn't realize it, they were going for an eighties theme with the music and other items.

Please go watch the IGN preview, this Gamespot preview is done just plain bad.

@chrisrooR 

agree. its very messy and not polished at all. And the humor/comedy gets stale quickly.

Weapons are also not pleasant at all to fire.

@epakille @chrisrooR If it didn't give you a headache or get stale quickly, it wouldn't be the 80's. You think playing this video game is bad, try growing up with the 80's experience for 10 years.
