1.0 out of 5 stars Another PC game downgraded because of the consoles, 9 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.

My advise to you, pirate the games and only buy the good ones that you can actually own. I got this game for free and I feel robbed. At least call of duty is always a good blast, this is just boring. At which point did games stop being fun and became boring?
You want a fun fun game with minimum cutscenes and lots of freedom? Buy Wolfenstein, that was a fun fun game for sure.
