What's up Ghosts,

Let me start this off by saying, Ghost Recon is and always has been my favorite FPS. I ask myself what separates Ghost Recon from all the other FPS games out there? I put some thought to it and have come up with a few things that draw me to play G.R. First off, can you say realistic realistic realistic!! I know one thing when I shoot a target with a sniper rifle I don't care how far that target is, it should go down. Another feature that I like about G.R is that you do not gain back your heath if you are wounded, I mean come on who heals in 20 seconds. It only takes a few bullets in the chest from a lighter powered weapon like the XM8, and that is how it should be. I have noticed that G.R. attracts a different kind of gamer then other first person shooters like Call of Duty. Is it just me or does the G.R game play weed out your Run of The Mill noob. I mean these guys just want to sit in a corner or run around aimlessly. Some of the most organized battles that I have ever played have been played on G.R. Let it be known that for the most part, I play with a lot of randoms. I can put in my any of my Call of Duty games, and play for days and never get that type of game play out of random players. Ghost Recon is the only game that I have ever played where every player on my team has been able to hold up in cross fire positions to lock down parts of the map. What I am saying by ( ever played ) is that when the match was over and we were in the lobby we would not be called campers (good game, nice shooting stuff like that). Well most of the time. Camping = Strategically placing yourself at a point of advantage. Map layout to me makes a huge difference when it comes to a F.P.S. I love the open maps the G.R has been offering us. The cover that the maps provide in G.R. always fits the maps properly. You do not see random stuff sitting around that just does not belong.

From what you guys have seen in the trailers, do you believe that G.R.F.S is going to uphold there realistic G.R. feel that I have grown to love?

Do you feel that the integration of kinect G.R.F.S, and in all Tom Clancy games is a good idea?

Do you think that battlefield 3 and MW3 has anything to do with the new reliese date?

If so do you feel that it was a good move?

What seperates Ghost Recon from the rest? Try this Top Ten List that has grown to a top 50 by now I think. :whistle:

GRFS isn't going to compete with the original IMO, different beasts. The original has too much that is missing in FS, having said that, and having watched the videos, some of FS is looking good, especially the co-op; co-ordinated take downs and room breaching is looking good. Waiting to see more...

I don't think GRFS will come anywhere near Ghost Recon in terms of tactical gameplay (or even realism), and as Rocky said it isn't aimed at competing with the original. But if they manage to keep the missions open or at least not too linear and make all of the superfluous futuristic stuff (e.g. augmented reality, invisibility cloaks, force fields, x-ray vision, robotic legs, autonomous drones etc.) optional and maybe add an FPV-only hardcore mode (without health regen etc.), then this could turn out to be a nice shooter. If they also add easy and comprehensive modding the whole thing could turn out a lot better than expected.

Add Rainbow Six to this conversation. I know a lot of you guys are Old GR fans. I played some but not much of the old GR. I also never played any of the PC versions. I actually started playing steadily with ghost recon 2 on the xbox and have played every iteration since. It's the tactical aspect of this game that just draws me in. And I hope they stick to that tactical format that brought them so much success. I think this game is going to be a huge hit. Aside from your teenage kids, a lot of people are tired of the run and gun aspect of cod series. Now BF3 could be interesting, but we'll have to wait and see on that one. I think Ubisoft is smart not to compete with BF3, MW3, GOW3. A lot of 3's in there :D So far everything is looking fairly good with FS. I'm sure it will deliver come March!

Future Soldier is the step up from Advanced Warfighter. It's still a Ghost Recon game but with much more advanced future technology and weaponry. there is no other game quite like the first one but i personally enjoyed playing GRAW 1 and 2, and i'm quite sure future soldier will be great. Kinect is really cool for bodily or mental exertion :D
