This purchase was a chance on my part. I never even played the other Ghost Recon games. This game is very tactical and has incredible stealth elements. I loved nearly every minute of the campaign. Aside from the very odd and stale ending, fun play through. There is also a basic wave mode and multiplayer. Multiplayer is very different from what people are used to. You rely on your team mates A LOT, one quick precise shot will kill you and ignoring the highly defended objectives is a sure way to lose. I found that when I or other players didn't play the objective the matches would end 300+ to 50, I still don't understand the scoring system all I know is we lost badly. I have fun playing and the gunsmith mechanic is even cooler in creating your classes. The only thing that keeps the mutiplayer in the shadow of other games is the inescapable lag. Half the games are laggy, glitchy and just impossible to play. If you have the patience to just leave and find better games a lot more than most games, than this is a great buy. If you're only looking for campaign a good rent, only for multiplayer you might want to pass considering it's kind of broken in ways, for the moment.

I've played too many of these third-person shooters... I like that this forces you to use some weapons you rarely get the chance to in other games, but besides that I didn't think it was anything special. Liked it but didn't love it and when video games go for $60, that makes all the difference
