    Really should have read the reviews here first. Far Cry 3 was an amazing game. Where this DLC is not a bad shooter and is fairly humorous, why in the world, other than to suck people in, does it have the Far Cry 3 name attached to it?? That normally indicates it's a follow-on from the original....this has NOTHING to do with the original. After reading some of the reviews I get the impression that some people consider it appropriate as it uses the same engine. If that's what makes something a DLC, why wasn't Far Cry 3 a DLC called Assassin's Creed 4!!! Ridiculous garbage....not the game, which isn't horribel, but the money grab here. Expand

    Easy, boring, unfunny, and wretchedly ugly (accomplished by making it permanently pitch black out and throwing a hideous dark reddish purple haze over what was once the gorgeous FC3). Everything about this screams cheap cash-in the only new model is the blood dragon, which wouldn't look out of place on the N64, everything else is hastily retextured or not at all, the bargain bin voice acting attempts (sounds like Michael Biehn just read down a list of a few dozen phrases in a 10 minutes take with no direction). The writing features an ambiguously consensual 'no means yes?' sex scene that might be most catastrophic failure of taste I've ever seen in a game outside of Japan. All of the weird interface from FC3 is still here too, unpatched, and the game will acknowledge that it sucks while mocking you for getting frustrated.

    Even for when this goes under $5, you'll still be giving your money to for a visciously unfun 6 hours.

    It's a meaty, gratifying dose of excess that refuses to pander to subtlety. [Issue#136, p.108]

    As if Far Cry 3 was developed by Ocean Software and starred The Terminator. [July 2013, p.76]

    Wholly entertaining, Blood Dragon chucks everything we didn't like about Far Cry 3 in the bin and cranks everything else we did like up to 11. Then adds lasers. Solid. [Issue #98, p.72]
