Tom Clancys Ghost Recon Future Soldier – Review (Xbox 360)
20 July 2012
Conclusion: This is a good game. It’s a fun game. It’s almost like a military RPG with the leveling up you have to do. There’s a lot of little things that I think are great and used well in this game. I won’t say this game has turned me into a shooting game fan, on the whole, but I am definitely a fan of this game!
Summary: Overall this game is as good as they come. I find it very hard to give any game a ten but this is up there with the Call of Duties and Battlefield games out there. I strongly recommend this game if you prefer the Gears of War style of game play over the first person shooter style. There is more focus on planning and stealth and not so much on the run and gun aspects of the other games.
Excerpt: The Ghost Recon series has been one of the shooter genre’s elite franchises, with an emphasis on squad tactics, near future tech, and effective mechanics. The latest installment is Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, which not only lives up to the previous games, but proves to be one of the best shooters available. GR: FS provides a wealth of content, whether you want to play alone, with friends, or against the world.
Conclusion: This game is very good. A 10-12 hour campaign, that can all be played cooperatively, is supported by a good handful of multiplayer offerings. The "story" seems relative and sets the stage for a great experience, even with it being a bit repetitive. There could be more playlists in "Adversarial," but the ones that are here rock and lend themselves well to the 6v6 design. Great gameplay mechanics are the tools to enjoy just pristine presentation, particularly the audio.
Excerpt: Tom Clancy siblings Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six have always had a complementary, yin/yang relationship. Where Rainbow is loud, Recon is quiet. While the former is all door-breaches and in-your-face, the latter is a half-click away, lying prone in a bush and about to pull the trigger on its sniper rifle.
Pros: + Deeply satisfying stealth-focused campaign — either solo or in four-person co-op., + Equally compelling multiplayer mode with no shortage of maps, modes, or upgrades.
Cons: ? Why don’t the subtitles always match the dialogue?
Excerpt: Ubisoft mission command sent over the latest for the Xbox 360, supporting some small section for optional Kinect play. The Game they sent: Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier for us to take a look at. All of our gear was combat loaded and ready to go, all stowed in a way for the anticipated tactical operations coming up, to review this game.
Excerpt: In terms of sales there is no doubt that Call of Duty sells more copies than the Ghost Recon series. That said, the Ghost Recon series is better in every way. There….I said it. From the early days of planning out the entirety of my team’s assault on an oil derrick in the original Rainbow Six to inverted-fast-roping through a Vegas Casino glass wall in Rainbow Six: Vegas, the Rainbow Six series manages to blend plausible realism with over-the-top action in way that...
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (Xbox 360) Review
3 June 2012
Excerpt: The last time Tom Clancy’s tactical shooter Ghost Recon arrived on the Xbox 360 it was back in 2007 with Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 (GRAW 2). At the time, I absolutely loved the game and I logged in countless numbers of hours with several now COG community members as we made our way across the virtual streets of Mexico taking down rebel insurgents.
Excerpt: One of my favourite shooters this year, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, offered a spectacular single player campaign with some of the best co-op fun I’ve played in years. While the game was packed with 12 missions and numerous tactical challenges, upon finishing the game I was left longing for more single player & co-op action. Well, my wishes have been answered with the Raven Strike DLC Package.
