    The authenticity and the survival, central to the experience, accentuate the urgency of the situations and this oppressive feeling of being the prey, and no longer the hunter, on Auroa.

    Ghost Recon Breakpoint looks like a different game on PC thanks to higher resolution, nicer visual effects and the chance to get a 60 fps gameplay that dramatically improves the overall experience.

    Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a decent open world, full of the bad ghosts of the Ghost Recon past.

    Ubisoft clearly wanted to make Breakpoint a mix between The Division and Destiny, but it doesn't really work if you look at the work as a whole. Dusty community hub breaking immersion, idiot AI, bugs of all kinds despite the beta, microtransaction system a little bit abusive, terrible driving vehicles system,tactics non-existent in solo.... However, the game also has some good aspects, especially with its brilliant main actor, its fun multiplayer Ghost War mode and many cooperative possibilities due to the realistic and complete equipment. Definitely Ghost Recon Breakpoint is not a bad game, but it is not what you would call a good game either.

    Breakpoint offers initial fun following Ubisoft's open-world structure as gospel, but a lack of variety and conflicting pieces leave it devoid of personality.

    Compared to its predecessor, Ghost Recon: Breakpoint offers mainly more possibilities for creating fun and exciting momens with friends. The flaws and bugs are offset by Ubisoft’s promise to continuously deliver new content for Breakpoint over the next few years. The French company has demonstrated with Rainbow Six Siege and Ghost Recon: Wildlands that they are committed to supporting their games for a long time, so there is a good chance that Breakpoint can play a lot better on your own in a year.

    Poorly stapled-on mechanics and a general lack of polish make Breakpoint's open-world tactics simply not worth the time.

    Best game ever. Ubisoft is the best, finally did an awesome job. Haven't donated any cent, and played for like 70+ hours.

    After a rather disappointing familiarization, I really enjoyed Breakpoint in Single Player. 350 hours of playtime.
    Graphically a masterpiece
    After a rather disappointing familiarization, I really enjoyed Breakpoint in Single Player. 350 hours of playtime.
    Graphically a masterpiece by Ubisoft. The huge map promises some variety in terms of terrain and the day and night rhythm really creates atmosphere. The game should be played in unguided mode on hard, then it feels very immersive and is big challenge and forces you to use the many different classes and their diffrent advantages.

    Biggest criticism:
    Ubisoft had to release quite a few patches before the game really became a serious competitor to its predecessors.

    If you want to play it, be sure to buy the Year One Edition.

    I love the game. It has a good set of bugs and its missing a special drone class for players.

    I love the game. It has a good set of bugs and its missing a special drone class for players.

    But i dissagree that its unplayable. You can buy everything with real money? True. But most people forgot that this was possible in Ghost Recon Wildlands too. Its optional. And commonly you dont need it.

    Aurora has lots of biomes and its way more different than Wildlands.

    Best thing! Your progression stays till you die or reload. So you wont get hit by an SAM that you cleared just 2 minutes ago. Loot and vehicles stay. Cleared bases stay cleared and there isnt a strange respawn or unlimited hunters like Unidad.

    Weapon and Equipment details are awesome! Ok... I got a 75" 4k setup. So i can enjoy it more than ohters;).

    You get a good shooter with a strange gear score system because the developers wanted you to switch between guns instead of sticking to the same gun for the whole game.

    Ubisoft always listens to their players. Thats why lots of stuff got removed or weakend after the first tech test. But it also causes lots of improvement like it did in Wildlands.

    Wildlands? Commonly helicopter use for transport. Breakpoint? Aurora is so full of stuff and action that i commonly travel by foot. And Aurora is huge! So its a real challenge to keep players on the ground. And a big achievement that it worked.

    I would wish for more drones. Including player made ones. Since you get lots of drone parts.
    And you can only sell 1 item at a time... Even if you got 200 of it. Kinda annoying but hey... I got lots of hate when i complained about that in RDR2.

    Recomendation. Buy it if you like exploration and good gun play. Its designed to be a 4 Player coop game or an immersive Solo experience. They cut down the survival part because of complaints. But they will include it after people complained that its missing.

    Ubisoft works to make the game fully custom. So everyone can choose his own experience. I love this idea!

    And again... You dont need to buy anything in the real money shop. They even give new players a vehicle and a helicopter for free... So the other packages are only for those who want the Season pass. Just buy the basic version and you will have alot of fun.

    Story? ... 70 hours and i only did 2 side quests and the main quest that was the only aviable in closed beta... Why? Because the game offers lots of exploration and interesting challenges. So i didnt cared for the story. Its a shooter after all.

    Hardcore Ghost Recon? Not even close, what a joke. This game not only runs horribly but the half baked story is almost difficult to continueHardcore Ghost Recon? Not even close, what a joke. This game not only runs horribly but the half baked story is almost difficult to continue to play. Breakpoint is loaded with micro transactions, horrible dialogue, p2w menus, a clear downgrade from Wildlands. Don’t buy this game or support this developer. They given us trash games every single time without fail since Far Cry 3. Expand
