Summary

Many war-based shooters have nailed the feeling of being in a battlefield. Explosions everywhere, bullets flying by your head, squad mates yelling commands, and countless ‘do or die’ situations. But few have actually conveyed the feeling of being a badass soldier. The Ghost Recon series is different - and the upcoming Future Soldier really ups the ante.

A lot of it is down to the fluid, refined controls and visceral sound direction - from the very first mission, you can get a real sense of the slower, rhythmic pace of this third-person tactical shooter. Whilst sneaking around, you are handed many opportunities to cap unsuspecting terrorist soldiers in the head. Each shot feels powerful, and every kill returns a satisfying ‘thud,’ making you feel a little bit like Superman every time.

In Future Soldier, America’s worst enemy has once again become the Russians. A para-military faction looks to overthrow the current Federation and re-establish the country as a superpower.

Where Ubisoft has really laid down some impressive work is in the artificial intelligence. Your squad mates are smart enough to know where to go, what to do and how best to assist you without the player issuing any commands whatsoever. Similarly, the enemy AI has been improved to the point where you will be fighting against formidable opponents. Without paying attention to the benefits of the future-age gadgets you wield and the nuances of the game’s mechanics, you’re going to fall pretty hard.
