It's a cool game that blends solid action with a well-designed system for tactics and stealth-based combat.
Pros: An overall engaging shooter experience involving cool stealth-based combat and a lot of single-player and multiplayer fun;
Cons: Basically nothing innovative, some missions are too easy thanks to unbalanced AI, story's unmemorable as are the characters.
Summary: " Ghost Recon Future Soldier " is a very solid game indeed which proves enjoyable from start to finish thanks to some excellent missions, an engaging storyline and a solid multiplayer to boot.
Conclusion: It would be just about impossible for any gamer worth their salt not to notice the strong, pervasive influences that new shooters like Call of Duty exert on Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. And while we’re tempted to complain about some of the more direct copying and pasting, the fact is this series needed some help. Ghost Recon’s attitude toward realism and tactics has always been commendable and full of potential.
Pros: Fun stealth gameplay, Huge graphical improvements
Cons: At least one fun-ending bug, Stock multiplayer
Excerpt: Most Tom Clancy games hold emphasis on stealth and coordination. Specialised teams work together in a synchronised dance of death, taking down targets quickly and quietly. The pleasure behind Tom Clancy titles has always been the satisfaction of finding tactical ways to resolve a mission besides the ‘Serious Sam’ approach of shooting everything that moves and then blowing up the leftover gibs for good measure.
Conclusion: In conclusion, Ghost Recon Future Soldier is a game that takes the things its competitors do best and brings them together in one package. Some may look at the changes that have been made and lose faith in the series, but the game is enjoyable nonetheless. While this title never quite exceeds the best of its competitors, it is still a damn good experience with few faults to affect the user’s experience.
Excerpt: The biggest offense for a game is to be inoffensive. To be thoroughly competent in all of the expected ways and yet contain no surprises. That’s the feeling with Ghost Recon: Future Soldier . After years without a proper entry in the franchise, its return is met with a departure from what the series once was.
