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.

Damn. As an older gamer, this really looks awesome.
Too bad the bit of searching i did, i came to a conclusion that this is a very nice looking game, that has been just dressed over cod.

Now please do correct me if im wrong but for what i've understood is, that this game is full of 80's, 90's things (awesome imo) but with modern BAD game mechanics.
Mechanics such as ironsights, health regen, cutscenes/qte's...

It is very shame if this turns out to be true, since this pretty much looks kinda like Hard Reset V2 :D which would just be pretty fucking awesome.
But ofcourse in this world, an awesome game would not make enough sells. Fuck!

Who the hell came up with this idea?  To mix 80s cheese and actions movies + Michael Biehn?....because they should be given a promotion for being awesome.

Of course an Ubisoft Montreal game opens with Toronto getting nuked. C'mon, guys. Why the Toronto hate?

I have a feeling that at the end it's going to be revealed that's it's a movie that Vaas or some other character from Far Cry 3 is watching.

Anyone else think this is what Duke Nukem should have been like? Pure 80's scifi action sauce and all?

@skOdgaard nope I m not. I had heard that their site had got hacked and a friend of mine already got it from a street vendor and I didn't believe it till I played it

growing up in the late 80's and early 90's this reminds me of everything my childhood consisted of! Badass cheesy action films, the absolute best cartoons and just pure 80's music! Can't wait! Will be downloading as soon as I can get it going May 1st!!!

Cool cat Cam,  More speculation would have been a welcome on what Ubisoft's intention are in making this game and marking it as Farcry.

weird but original ... I like it.


this is how expansions/DLC should be ... something that you wouldn't get in the normal far cry 3 game experience. the fact that is standalone is also pretty cool since you can try this without ever owning the original. looking really good ubisoft.
