"Ghost Recon: Future Soldier", the latest in a series of Tom Clancy's squad based shooters, is a well done 3PS that does of fine job of mixing both stealth and all out action. The game does a nice job of keeping things tense throughout, and forces players to think and plan out their next move. COD-style of run and gun will get you killed quickly more often than not. Your three squad mates act well on their own, dispatching targets and providing a dose of first aid should you require it. The ability to synch shots is highly satisfying, where up to 4 targets can be marked for a simultaneous takedown. Early on this can clear an area but later in the game, you'll be forced to deal with larger squads, necessitating more care in picking your targets. The cover system works fairly well and rarely fails you. The AI of both allies and enemies is well done, and leads to some tense firefights. Voice acting is quite good, and the story, while not outstanding, is one of the better ones you'll find in recent shooters. The ending may seem abrupt, but it's also satisfying. The campaign has a nice length- the 12 missions will take you anywhere from 10-12 hours to complete one playthrough. Challenges offer some incentive to revisit the campaign. The Guerrilla mode is basically a survival mode that can be played solo, though you'll have a tough time lasting long alone. There's multiplayer for those who enjoy it as well, but this review is just of the single player campaign, as I generally don't play online. The graphics are nicely done, with plenty of detail, and the Ghosts are well animated. The guns sound great, and get pinned and the camera will shake under heavy fire. Cover can be destroyed, so keeping a cool head under fire and in motion will help you survive. There are a few on rails segments where you man a gun aboard a helicopter or truck, and fun as they are, it's the stealth segments that really shine here. If you enjoy shooters, this game is well worth your time.
I would have given this game a 9 but the only fault I really found in the game was the voice over. They did not seem like they really put any effort into the lip sync. It looks like their mouths are moving like the games had them 10 years ago... But the gameplay, guns, and missions were really awesome! But one thing I wish would change... once you go through a cut scene, if you die, dont make us watch that same cut scene again lol.
