An Honest Review of Wildlands

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! So I decided to make my own full review of wildlands after seeing so many bad reviews of the game, because I love it so much. I used a script which I'm not used to so if you want to read the notes I used for the video then just take a look below. Let me know what you think.

 

 

 

Pros Before I praise the game for its best parts I want to play some clips that I think show the unique nature of the game. My initial thoughts on the game were pretty harsh since it seemed like a 180 from ghost recon future solder but as I've been playing it lately I actually love it . It pushes the boundaries of depth and immersion for a realistic setting , Is 4 player cooperative , Is one of the first games I've ever seen to emphasize the importance of situational awareness and how nicely layered level design can hinder or improve a missions success not to mention that some missions are very creative and get intense at times, even for those who didn't find to much of a challenge you can customize your HUD for a more realistic experience if you desire. The expansion Fallen Ghosts had the exact tone that I wish the entire game carried . I think my favorite enemy was El yayo because he felt like a real character , as far as the most impactful missions those would be where we found out about agent Sandoval or when amaru died in the end of the game . They were some of the only missions that made me feel like there were real consequences for us trying to turn the entire cartel on its head.
 
Cons Not enough cutscenes , poor voice acting , AI Civillians every freaking where and even when ###### got thick they would stay there and run towards gun fire or cower . Me spawning a vehicle and not being able to find it at all . Being able to change your loadout on the fly . If thats the case then why are you even able to change it at a ammo refill. Stupid upgrades . The pvp came very much after the initial release although granted it was made apparent that it wasn't meant to be that kind of game I still think that the PvP given to us is a glorified squad death match where you hunt each other . The objective based, team work oriented PvP in ghost recon future soldier in my eyes is the best. Attention to detail clips Narco road / loot boxes / stupid AI Fallen Ghost/ Still adding and Changing things to the game Alot of reviews were super harsh on this game.
 
When I think about the whole controversy about Big media outlets stealing content from creators and Exaggerated reviews of Clean Price and Down Ward thrust. Some were probably riding the train, but after awhile I began to love this game . I just had to appreciate it for what it was and not focus on what it wasn't. A direct sequel to Future Soldier. This game is different from alot of other shooters I played. To be specific you need complete situational awareness. It doesn't hold your hand if you're oblivious. The environment isn't just there for good looks, it's part of what makes the game challenging and just as well its part of it's charm. Whether it's going to a mission, or escaping an area when the mission didn't go as planned. Maybe the enemy base is littered with patrols , gates , checkpoints , sniper towers. There are deserts, snowy mountains, jungles , swamps, underground bases , Air fields

It's an interesting perspective on what you think makes a great game BZ. I don't necessarily agree with all the things but we agree on many.

I respect that, I mean everyone does have their own perspective.

I should have expanded 😉 it's interesting to see what makes the game enjoyable is different for everyone, things I hadn't really noticed before. It also highlights the challenge for Devs in trying to build a game that pleases everyone. There are just too many design decisions.

My main con i agree with is the voice acting. I don't know why they havent fixed it so you dont hear them go over bosses that have been taken out already. For me that's real frustrating and i usually turn the voice volume off. Honestly i love the game still. I hope they make a 2nd one, but we'll see cause this one was just a hit for me ever since I saw the reveal trailer.

Lets hope the new one lives up to the hype.
