Do not be fooled by these other reviews, this game is in a complete league of it's own.
A fantastic campaign that while being a tutorial does not actually feel like a tutorial
Great multiplayer with plenty of different modes
Cover system is much smoother than Gears
Very in-depth gun customization and actually being able to test out everything before using it in battle
If you have enough people the tactics are amazing
Multiplayer isn't mindless shooting like CoD and has objectives and is based on teamwork
Stealth is very punishing: being detected in multiplayer is almost certain death, in the campaign the stealth is crucial if you want to get anywhere
You need an online pass and a Ubisoft account to fully enjoy this game
Ghost Recon FS is a Third person cover based shooter. Is this a bad thing? NO! Many believe if it doesn't bring something new to the table it is trash. This is mostly due to the hate on COD. The game is great, it adds gadgets that can help you in battle some cool and unique like sensor grenades or generic like frag grenades, and while the campaign is a bit lacking and frustrating the online is what makes this game. This is were the Rent becomes a problem, Ubisoft has joined the online pass band-wagon. Does this make the game bad? No, go buy the game and it wont be a problem but for the rent it is probably a steer clear. on the bright side they haven't completely locked out mp to the renters. You are allowed to get to lvl. 5 with all 3 classes and are alowed to play 2 game modes of the 4 available. You may play Conflict: Semi-TDM with more emphasis on team work and objectives, Kills give no points but team work actions add 1 and objective completions add 100, and Saboteur: a neutral bomb must be acquired and armed in the enemies bombsite, winner is the one that arms the bomb ties are decided by team action points. you still get a multiplayer experience but it isn't much. I hope this made you decide to possibly rent and then keep from Gamefly if not then i respect your decision.
