This game is in a peculiar state, almost entirely because it carries the “Far Cry 3” name in its title. The plot has nothing at all to do with Far Cry 3. It’s a parody of 80’s future thrillers and is quite silly in a lot of places.
On the other hand, much of the gameplay is very Far Cry 3. There’s lot of sneaking and the shooting is, obviously, the same (not to mention the driving). It’s very short (you can get through the primary campaign in about 3 hours), and it’s quite linear when compared to Far Cry 3.
But it’s only $15 - and that’s not a sale, it’s actually only $15. And the recreation of the 80s sci-fi thriller world is oh-so accurate. The soundtrack is SPOT ON. And in a nice touch, the NES-style cinematics fit the atmosphere perfectly.
It kinda feels like a mod of Far Cry 3, and thusly, I can understand choosing that title. At such a short length and such a great price for the quality, it’s an absolutely worthwhile play - particularly if you enjoyed movies like Terminator and Blade Runner.
I’m doing a full video review which should be up by the weekend.
