Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars

Square-Go
23 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Tactics games always seem to pop up pretty early on portable systems, so it was simply a matter of time before a tactics game arrived on 3DS. Not much time at all in this case, since Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars was there at launch. Always eager to be first to market, perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised it was Ubisoft to do the honours. Unfortunately, that same eagerness explains why the game feels rushed and a little rough around the edges.

Ghost Recon Shadow Wars

  • Excerpt: It has been awhile since I've sunk my teeth into an Ubisoft shooter. If I recall correctly, it's been at least a couple of years since I hunkered down with anything from Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon franchises. A new Ghost Recon game for the next generation platforms has been in the works for some time now, but we've heard nothing in regards to a new Rainbow Six game.

  • Excerpt: What do you expect when you play a Ghost Recon game? Probably high-flying action, an over-the-top storyline, first-person shooting and... wait, this isn’t a first-person shooter? “Give me a refund!” you would probably say. Not so fast. Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars is a quality turn-based strategy game that focuses more on planning than it does on shooting.

  • Summary: Shadow Wars is without a doubt one of the most robust titles on offer for the launch of the 3DS. The negatives are few and relatively minor: the storyline and characters are forgettable, the multiplayer is a little clumsy and the visuals could be better. However, the developers have done a superlative job of creating a turn-based strategy game that can, conceivably, be appreciated by newcomers to the genre as well as experienced strategists.

Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars Review | Three Dimensional Graphics, Two Dimensional Gameplay

Dealspwn
30 March 2011
  • Excerpt: It's difficult to imagine a more exciting mission statement. Commanding a team of hard bitten stock characters, you'll storm through a meaty campaign set in wartorn Kazakhstan; using isometric turn based strategy instead of third-person cover shooting. Its pedigree stems from the watchful eye of Julian Gollop, the British mastermind behind the venerable X-COM franchise - and whilst innovation is at a premium, his influence is very clear from the outset.
  • Pros: Effective strategy action, Satisfying campaign and skirmish mode, Chunky, attractive and functional 3D visuals
  • Cons: Annoying lack of basic genre staples, P.E.C. system is underused, little replayability, Ghost Recon in name alone. No recon. Little stealth.

Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars

Ready Up
27 March 2011
  • Summary: Ghost Recon on the 3DS is a great introduction to the machine for me. Easy to get in to, hard to put down, it epitomises all that is good about pick up and play gaming. In a slightly lacklustre launch line up, this shines like an undiscovered gem.
