'''''Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon''''' (a 2013 game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and released on PSN, Xbox Live Arcade, and PC) is a stand-alone expansion of ''VideoGame/FarCry3''; you don't have to own ''Far Cry 3'' to play ''Blood Dragon'', but having played ''Far Cry 3'' may help you get used to ''Blood Dragon's'' controls. The expansion game serves up a [[AffectionateParody love letter]] to [[TheEighties '80s]] action movies (and videogames of roughly the same era) -- it takes place on a bizarre, neon-colored island crawling with [[EverythingTryingToKillYou killer robot soldiers and robot animals]], and it features a musical score filled with cheesy synthesizer music.

In the grim future of 2007, American cyber-soldier [[AwesomeMcCoolname Sergeant Rex "Power" Colt]] (voiced by Michael "[[Film/{{Terminator}} Kyle Reese]]" Biehn) travels to a remote island to destroy a rogue robot army led by his former mentor, Sloan. Armed with a wide array of weapons and accompanied by fellow soldier [[BlackBestFriend Spider]] (and HotScientist Dr. Darling later on), Rex has to get the girl, [[KillEmAll kill the bad guys]], and [[SavingTheWorld save the world]] from [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment the apocalypse's apocalypse]].

* AffectionateParody: Of 1980s sci-fi action movies. The expansion pack's cast even includes Michael Biehn (of ''{{Film/Aliens}}'' and ''TheTerminator'' fame)!

Added DiffLines:

* WorstAid: Fitting with the game's jokey nature, it's parodied. When critically injured Rex will fix his robot arm with a blow torch, rapidly squeeze a grip strength bar, or just pop a loose wire back into place. The one time it's played straight is when he fingers the bullet wound to try and get it out.

Added DiffLines:

* SniperScopeSway: The Kobracon does this unless holding your breath, as in ''VideoGame/FarCry3''. Subverted with the aim stabiliser upgrade, which makes the breath holding mechanic redundant.

Added DiffLines:

* RefugeInAudacity: The game runs on this. The fact that shooting someone in the back with a quad-barrelled incendiary shotgun can count as a ''stealth kill'' is only the tip of the iceberg.

* {{Retraux}}: The game is crafted to look and feel like an 80s scifi action film. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dofacvjRkc This goes all the way down to its official trailer as well.]] The game's artists were directed to use old SegaGenesis game box art for inspiration, particularly with games like ''VideoGame/{{ESwat}}'' and ''VideoGame/CyborgJustice''. Also notable are the cutscenes which copy the cutscene style of DOS-era games with LimitedAnimation and limited color palette.

* KonamiCode: The game's official website has "Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, A, B" scribbled in the upper right corner. Using it and hitting Enter will then make anything you click on explode in a cheesy gif fireball. [[http://fc3blooddragon.us.ubi.com/shop.php See for yourself.]]
