PAMPERS YOU WITH WEAPONS
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier tests the player’s strategy plans. You are part of the Ghost squad, the Hunter Team to be precise. Your aim is to find out who is behind a terror attack on USA which cost your colleagues’ lives after they intercepted the package. No reckless cowboy heroics here. The best plan is to take your target down one at a time, making sure that the patrolling guards don’t come across a dead body and raise the alarm.
This game comes with many new attacking methods like “tag the enemies”. You first synchronise their kill with the help of your other team members. This can be done in single player mode as well as by your controlling four soldiers. This approach works wonders during a firefight. You simply discover the enemy, tag them and then fire. All four soldiers will take down their targets at one go.
This fast-paced game pampers you with so many more different weapons that even Inspector Gadget looks like an unarmed gladiator in a Roman circus. There is the Warhound mobile artillery platform that launches missiles by remote commands. The flying drone is a great tactical weapon as it helps you survey the battlefield from the sky. The magnetic view allows you to see through walls and identify enemies carrying weapons and other metal objects such as landmines.
The gameplay is a refreshing change as you don't need to babysit your squad. Team members have their own mind, thanks to artificial intelligence, and find their own cover when required. But even with AI, your co-fighters are still likely to play follow the leader and no prizes in guessing who the leader is—you, of course.
If one is to do a bit of nitpicking then it has to be the graphics that are just one bar above “bad”. Some cut scenes lack detail and look average at best. But as a third-person shooter game, Ghost
Recon is worth buying.

OR JUNK IT? Average graphics but as a game is worth buying.
