Forget everything you think you know about Far Cry 3 when starting Blood Dragon. With the exception of the core element of an open-world on a tropical island, there’s hardly anything that has stayed the same. The entire Far Cry 3 experience has been streamlined as there is no longer a need to sell the items looted, sorry, pilfered. Levels are gained and given to you without so much as seeing a skill tree. There are analogues to pistols, shotguns, SMGs, sniper rifles as they all return with new names with futuristic-sounding attachments. Enemies are varied, and are no longer simple pirates. These cyborgs want you deader than a “Where’s the Beef?” commercial.
