Another PC game downgraded because of the consoles
, 9 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
From the videos & reveiews before release I was expecting this game to be much much better. Ive had it wrapped in the selephane for a couple of months becuase I just havn't found the time to play it. Yesterday I decided to give it a go. Installing the game took a little over an hour & even after just 2 months from release we are already on patch 1.3. Then the obvious happens like most PC games...you need to install & load a 3rd party programme in order for you to play the game - "UPLAY" ...so yes yet another game that we have paid for but don't actually own.
Then we come to the game itself...First impressions: -
Cut scenes/video - the usual eye candy & video/visuals when maxed out on all high settings...and thats about where it ends. The actual gameplay has gone down the ever-growing "linear - COD" path with its excessive cut-secenes & points that only give you a couple of options/ways to go. The level depth is very small & poor poor poor...think "Medal of Honour" and you are getting somewhere very close.
Too many shooters are trying to copy COD - but even COD by todays standards has become flawed because of priority of releaes for consoles.
If you really want a shooter that has no boundries then play ARMA (if you havn't already done so)....OH WAIT...CONSOLES DON'T HAVE THE POWER TO PLAY IT DO THEY...!!
FROM NOW ON IF YOU WANT A DECENT PC GAME MAKE SURE IT ISN'T ON THE CONSOLE...OR AT THE VERY LEAST THAT IT WASN'T RELEASED FOR CONSOLE FIRST.
