I purchased my Original Xbox for 75 dollars. That included two ######ty games and two controllers. I went on to buy alot of games from the time I bought it on. In 2005 I bought my first Ubisoft game. Ghost Recon 2: Summit Strike. That game introduced me to what is now one of my best friends in the world OPSIXDELTA. I put the game in and the first thing I did was start a co-op campaign room. I had a few people join at first and I instantly saw run and gun and my worries began. So I kicked everyone out and started a new room. I had three people join right away and the first question I asked was "Can anyone play this game tactically" I got one affirmative and two completely silent people. I kicked the quiet ones and set out to tactically take out the Government District. A level that myself and Delta would be tackling for over a year until the Xbox 360 and finally GRAW was released. Delta and I continued our tradition of playing Ghost Recon together. We gained friends and started moving from co-op to multiplayer. And we were good. We gathered a team and started playing every day and we were GOOD. Then we all sort of fell apart. GRAW2 was fantastic but I joined the Navy and everyone else was working hard. one day I picked GRAW2 up used and started playing it again. And Delta and a few of our old squad did as well but it was a strictly co-op thing. The duty players had moved into the game and tactical playing was no longer being done. But the beauty of the GRAW games was I could control who was on what team. Now Future soldier is released and Delta and I are Excited.

Then we played the game. We started our ghost recon tradition of opening a player hosted match. Wait. . .it won't let me close this to the public. Why can't I make it a private match. Oh it already is? that's interesting. Oh well lets get started. We learned a couple of maps the first night and by night two we were ready to get into the action of tactical multiplayer gaming. I started a game hoping to be able to host and determine who was on what team. At first it would be randomized but over time I would build my tactical playing team and hopefully get a few people to. . .why am I searching for a game I wanted a custom match that I host and control. . .whatever lets just see how it works out. Overpass. Underground. Market. Harbor. Cargo. FRUSTRATION. Delta and I are the only ones talking that's nothing new but why are these maps all run and gun paradise. So I exit with my party and I go to the maps. And we go from map to map on 5 minute games and realize that these maps are all catered to run and gun gaming. This is a sad day in the Ghost Recon world. For seven years I've been looking forward to every Ghost Recon Game. I play Ubisoft games just because Ubisoft made them. It's why I like assassins creed. Rainbow Six Vegas. It's all because of Ghost Recon. And now Ubisoft has gone the way of Call of Duty. Battlefield. Gears of War. You've sold out the Ghost Recon Franchise Ubisoft. And heres why:

The Problems as I see them

First off I can't seem to Host my own match. This is a Problem as I am a particular person about who I like in and out of my room. I guess it doesn't matter to Ubi who is in the lobby because, Problem number two, this lobby system is after all in the style of every CoD game I've ever played and that's a total of 4 (and just so everyone knows I burned every copy of that game I ever owned because I do not want it back in circulation) and finally BIG problem number 3 (by the way there are far more than these problems I'm just stating my top three) Every map is catered to run and gun. Choke points surrounded by ways in and out making them just a filter instead of a good spot to mine, no Sniping worth anything. In short these games are just call of Duty, And though I hate these games I know they used to be necessary. And I also knew that they would keep those sweet sweet little children off of my Ghost Recon games. Those run and gun players as well. Battlefield Gears of War and Call of duty and countless other run and gun paradises will keep my Ghost Recon as tactical as ever. But not anymore.

In short Ubisoft I will make this simple statement Make a short list and ask a simple question:

Statement: You've sold out the Ghost Recon Franchise Ubi

List: This is what I see wrong with the game:

1: There are no player hosted match settings or search settings

2: There are no open maps to facilitate tactical gameplay and snipers

3: I can't control what game I join and who in my party will stay on my team. It's more of a push the button and pray method.

4: You've taken out too much of the old Ghost Recon and added in too much of the New Call of Duty

Question: Why take a dump on a good thing? Tell me why it is you destroyed the good about ghost recon and made it into something new and different?

Gunsmith is great co-op is great, single player is great. But Ubi you've done all of us members of the hardcore tactical playing fanbase a great injustice by turning this game into what it isn't. Run and gun Call of Duty meets Ghost Recon. You've sold out so that you can make more money and that hurts us Ubisoft. That hurts alot.

Tactical is good but any choice in your poll is fine by me.

The Problems as I see them

1: There are no player hosted match settings or search settings

3: I can't control what game I join and who in my party will stay on my team. It's more of a push the button and pray method.

.

The biggest let down imho is the lack of full control in private matches for console and pc.
