Platform: PC Download

The year is 2007. It is the future.

You are Sergeant Rex Colt: Mark IV Cyber Commando. The year is 2007 and Earth has been ravaged by a nuclear war which erupted in the 90s.

The east vs. west conflict has raged for generations, and humanity continues to struggle to progress after a disastrous decade. New paths for peace must be found, and the US cyborg army may have found a solution: a powerful bioweapon on a distant island. Your mission is to gather information and figure out what the hell is going on.

Key Features

A kick-ass cyber shooter.

There’s only one force powerful enough to stop an army of rampaging killer cyborgs, mutated scientists, metal sharks, and vicious Blood Dragons that shoot lasers from their eyes – that force is you. Your name is Sergeant Rex Power Colt, a Mark IV Cyber Commando. Lock and load as you and your seven favorite fully customizable killing implements tackle a bizarre open world island crawling with evil. Take down the enemy with ninja stars, guns, or even just good old explosives. Your battle. Your way. Their tough luck.


Get the girl, kill the bad guys, and save the world.

As Sergeant Rex Colt, you are part man, part machine, and all American. You are a state-of-the-art Mark IV cyber commando on a mission of vengeance. You’re out to bring down your old commanding officer and his battalion of ruthless killer cyborgs, and you’ll stop at nothing to get the job done.


Wrapped up in every cliché from the VHS era.

Hollywood action icon Michael Biehn (The Terminator, Aliens, and The Abyss), returns in this explosive 1980s-style sci-fi vision of a dark future where cyborgs and mutants collide. So turn off your VCR, plug in your video game cabinet, and get ready to experience all the thrills of Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon in full stereophonic sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars As Awesome as Advertised May 1, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download
Let's be honest, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon sounded a bit too good to be true when it was first announced (seems fitting it was announced on April Fool's, right?). Luckily, that isn't the case. Blood Dragon is downright awesome, and it's one of the best stand alone games I've played since Minerva's Den. Why? Well, it's pretty simple. It's basically the dream 80's action film in a video game form. Part Tron, part Terminator, and part Robocop, this balls to wall action game deftly mixes the the best of 80's action films with all out with explosive game play. Let me just say that, if you have any passing interest in 80's action films, you need to play this game.

First off, while Blood Dragon essentially Far Cry 3 regarding game play, everything else is completely different. Honestly, it's the whole 80's inspiration that drove me to purchase this, and they did NOT disappoint. The basic plot revolves around Sergeant Rex "Power" Colt, who's on a mission to destroy a rogue robot army in a futuristic dystopia in 2007. He's aiming to get the chick, cause a lot of deaths and destruction, and of course, save the world from a robot apocalypse. Along the way, there are cyborgs, cheesy 80's one-liners, laser-spewing dragons, and a world that is basically an orgy of neon lights and brilliant, colorful landscapes, brought up to uncomfortable levels of rave. Oh, and they have Michael Biehn (of Aliens/Terminator fame) playing the lead role.

It's the style, and the fact that they hold NOTHING back, is why this tongue in cheek, but still genuine, love for the 80's works. It's a wild game, evoking every awesome 80's action film brought up to the most grandiose levels of sheer awesomeness. It's wild and it doesn't hold anything back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Stand Alone DLC this Gaming Generation! May 6, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download
Like most people, I thought the announcement for this downloadable content was literally an April Fool's joke. Luckily, it was not. What do you get for $14.99? Oh, positively one of the best, if not THE best Stand alone DLC experience you can buy right now. Ubisoft Montreal have somehow combined the humorous nostalgia of 1980s action movies with their current Far Cry engine; to create an experience that would make Arnold Schwarzenegger wish he was young once again. To top off the look and feel, Michael Beihn (known for Aliens, The Terminator, Navy Seals) even offers his gruff voice to portray Rex Power Colt, the Mark IV Cyber Commando you control to thwart the evil schemes of your previous commanding officer. The adventure is full of one liners, crazy action situations, and just plain over the top stupidity that you can't help but love and laugh at. Even the soundtrack provided by electronic band, Power Glove, fits with Blood Dragon's look providing familiar yet needed sound queues for every situation. Although the in game cut-scenes are not what you call "current generation," they do however provide a wonderful ode to old school story telling for video games from the 80s. If you don't laugh at the Terminator or Predator references within the first 5 minutes, you must not have a funny bone within you...or you are too young to understand.

The cons:
*For PC, you have to use Ubisoft's version of DRM game management, UPlay, no matter if you are already using Steam or Origin. It's a minor inconvenience, but you can simply set it to go into offline mode after you install and register Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.
*PC default controls seem off to me like Far Cry 3's did. The game feels more comfortable using an XB360 controller, even though my aim suffers this way.

Simply put, this is the most fun game I have ever played. Thank you Ubisoft for taking a risk and making a non-mainstream game. You put a smile on my face for hours and hours!

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best downloadable games this year August 16, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download
The Good: Fantastic music and art, wonderful sense of humor, Rex is an awesome character, dragons, the weapons

The Bad: Light on content, too much reskinned from Far Cry 3, short story, lame storyboard cut scenes

Blood Dragon is a beast all on its own. Forget everything you know about Far Cry. Blood Dragon uses Far Cry 3 as a base -- a building block to lay something seriously bad ass down. You play as a cyborg named Rex who is trying to stop a man named Sloan from taking over the world. Sounds cheesy, and it is, and that's the best part.

Right when you launch the game you will notice the awesome 80′s vibe. The loading screen looks like a VCR with a tracking bar down at the bottom. Funny little hints flash across the screen like "Sniper Rifles...close range weapons when you select the wrong gun." Once I saw stuff like this I knew I was in for a bad ass ride. The game is short on content, let me just get that out right now. You can beat the story in about 4 hours, but there are bases to take over like in Far Cry 3. You can use cyber hearts you rip from dead bodies to lure Blood Dragons into these bases, shoot the bad guys up yourself, or go all stealth. It's completely up to you. The dragons can hear you once you run or shoot, so stay low and use the hearts to lure them away. Other than that there are two side missions you can partake in, hostage rescues and hunting. Not exactly different from Far Cry 3, but enough to justify the small price tag.

There are only a few weapons in the whole game, but they are really awesome. The shotgun has a cool reload animation similar to The Terminator 2, and Rex rests the gun on his wrist. He pops the shells in by letting them fall into the chamber.

It was ok. After my issues with FC4, I hate to rate anything Ubisoft does with more than one star.

3.0 out of 5 stars So very average. Ultra positive reviews are mind boggling.
This game is literally 2 hours and 30 minutes long. If you want to go for 100% completion I can't imagine it would take much over 4 hours. That is pathetic. Read more
