Slightly disappointing, but the compulsive appeal of the parent game carries over and it's nice to play a sci-fi shooter that's not trying to tell a so-called 'epic' story.

I'll bet Neon would have loved this... certainly sounds like it deserves more than a 7 rating...

cough *9* cough.

I'm wondering if it's more to do with having lived through the 80s and been that age group to have seen those movies when they came out and fondly remembering VHS etc.

Interestingly Turtles was the 90s and the 16 bit cut scenes are also more 90s than 80s, everything else was very 80s.

Downloading right now... shall hopefully be able to offer some thoughts on the title later tonight.

Although it does remind me of when I was music editor for the student mag, having to remind reviewers weekly that it wasn't edgy to hate on everything and bitch/condescend at every opportunity... If something is genuinely enjoyable, say so. VG.com does feel like it is currently in such a sulky teenage phase... which is a shame... :-/

For being just a DLC yet having an excellent story and gameplay plus nice soundtrack, I would five FC3: Blood Dragon a 9.5 score.

I prefer this one better than the dissapointing Crysis 3 which I finished playing in less than 10 hours.

Blood Dragon is unique as it's a homage to the 80's although the year is 2007 and there are also reference to 90's. I'm tired of playing zombie themed games.

And guys, here's a walkthrough I recommend: http://www.cheatmasters.com/blog/201...-dragon-guide/
