Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is badass, er, backward compatible on Xbox One

Be kind, rewind, and shoot to kill

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is the latest Xbox 360 game to become backward compatible with Xbox One.

Almost deliberately designed to be a cult hit, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was teased to a disbelieving public shortly after the 2012 launch of Far Cry 3, a much more mainstream take on the franchise. Blood Dragon, which looked for all the world to be a joke until it wasn't, is something straight out of a 1980s movie-rental store, replete with over-the-top action and third-wall breaking dialogue.

We scored it an 8, for those keeping, well, score. The game launched in spring 2013, about six months before the new console generation debuted. The rest of the Xbox One's backward compatible library is here.
