ADMINS, I AM NOT STARTING ANY DEBATE AGAINST GR:FS, I SIMPLY AM CURIOUS OF THIS PERSON'S OPINION.
I really like OGR, but it is lacking in a few areas.
OGR? As in the first Ghost Recon? What things do you find lacking?
Well, mostly in the weapon customization department and the AI department.
In the case of AI they are either insane and know exactly where you are and hit you in one shot with iron sights when you even barely peek out.
They are dumb as a rock and do not even see you coming.
Your AI buddies cannot hit the broad side of a barn on one occasion but then have perfect precision another time. Even if they have terrain and stealth advantage on both occasions.
WRT weapon customization I do understand that not all weapons can take certain things and of course they have to limit the kits in some manner.. a guy with a suppressed&scoped long range rifle /and/ a suppressed&scoped shorter range rifle /and/ a bunch of grenades is not quite what you might find in a field. But that did not stop me from doing it in GRAW1 w/ brettzies.
There are also the times when you set a point on the map for you buddies to go to and the route cannot be calculated or takes a long time to calculate.
Never mind that you can pretty much never send them into buildings without them getting their posteriors handed to them. And forget about multi-level stuff or enclosed spaces where they trip over each other.
Now, this is more something that was not quite as technically practical ten years ago with more limited computing power.. but I would kinda like that explosive to actually affect that interior wall as well as that guy on the other side of it in a house. As you may have noticed interior walls are incredibly flimsy and even a round from a reasonable pistol can penetrate the vast majority of them. Bullet fragments bouncing around after entering a room can also be very deadly but simulating those certainly adds to the computational load.
Exterior walls are thicker and more sturdy in general and not all weapons can chew through all of them even with extended fire in a specific spot so I am not bothered by them.
Do not get me wrong, I love original Ghost Recon but it is by no means perfect. Nor is basically anything else on the market.
OHYEAH I forgot! Ghost Recon needs TrackIR support!.
