Review: Ghost Recon Future Soldier

ghost_recon_future_soldier_bot

Having never sampled a Ghost Recon nor mired in Tom Clancy’s infiltration of the video games industry I approached this latest addition to the franchise, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, with open eyes and was more than pleasantly surprised by the package offered. Baring a few graphical and connectivity hiccups it was a hell of a romp with solid AI across the board.

Woo hoo Jester's dead!

I say pleasantly surprised as friendly AI is usually as dumb as dogshit, but Ubisoft amazingly added actual intelligence to the artificial component making both single or co-operative play viable options.

“If you are discovered or take a wrong turn down clusterfuck alley, your team is surprisingly adept at dealing with a more bloody solution. They will flank, actually take out hostiles and even race to revive you when prompted. It all handles remarkably well and any moments I was cursing my squad for their inabilities were extremely few and far between. All in all the single-player campaign was surprisingly satisfying, with any co-op buddies jumping in only adding to the enjoyment and not the other way around which is an incredibly refreshing change.”
