With hundreds of villages and well-known landmarks, local legends and various factions and regions, players venture into a vast world with which to interact and explore. The Ghosts’ upgradable skills, along with a vast arsenal of weapons, vehicles and drones, help them defeat their almighty enemy. Gamers can play the entire game solo or they join up with as many as three friends in co-op to roam freely in this vast playground. [Ubisoft] Expand

    Ghost Recon Wildlands does not really innovate. However, it offers enjoyable tactical stealth gameplay set in an impressive, vast world, and provides a fun, memorable and rewarding experience in both co-op and solo playthroughs. Main missions are well-designed and offer great variety and challenge, and although the story is rather predictable, it has great presentation and ample amounts of information to support it. It is, in its core, a true Tom Clancy title and worthy successor to the Ghost Recon series.

    Wildlands is a great mix-up of some of the best elements of Ubisoft's most prominent IPs, but struggles to find its own identity. Military-minded co-op fans will definitely want to check this out, while solo players can also expect up to 50 hours of open-world fun.

    Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands is equal parts new approach to a storied franchise and familiar and well-trod open world systems. While it doesn’t break a great deal of new ground for the genre, when played with friends this cooperative open-world game can be an amazing amount of fun. Those moments are tempered by technical mishaps and inconsistencies that can be patched, but as a result, this launch ride is going to have some technical potholes that put a damper on an otherwise excellent experience.

    Many issues, like linear progression and limited AI, that I have with Wildlands are issues rooted to the ‘open-world’ genre, and therefore not worth holding against Ubisoft. Wildlands offers a tight finesse for a shooter, and is sure to be enjoyed by gamers; however, it does little to go beyond this.

    Fun shooting and open world are great, but there aren’t many Ghost Recon elements and game simply feels dull at times.

    Proof that bad writing can ruin anything, Ghost Recon Wildlands feels like the death knell for a particular style of open-world game. Occasionally great moments, like the co-op play and the Sync Shot, are sadly drowned out.

It's filled with plenty of content, multiplayer, challenges, and customization to last for hours. It's not perfect, but if Ubisoft continue to improve upon this design in the next iteration of Ghost Recon, it has the potential to be a GOTY contender. Expand

Gunplay in this one is amazing, I can't really thinkI like to describe this game in terms of a fusion between The Division and GTA: Online. Gunplay in this one is amazing, I can't really think of any other game in which I would enjoy shooting as much. Missions are somewhat repeatable, but as environment and stealth are two crucial factors on the highest difficulty level (which I do recommend a lot), they vary a lot in that regard. Add some coop interactions with a group of friends (I only played on coop), and you have a solid experience for many, many hours to come. Expand

I love the options on doing the quests, so you can infiltrate and such things that other games marked as "stealth" lack of, but obviously, the AI of the teammates is messy, so if you want a fully infiltration without being discovered, you better leave your team behind and use them just for the sincro shoot. So: good enviroment, good on alternatives, good on customization, but it lacks on music and AI. Expand

    This is as generic as generic gets. A massive and undeniably beautiful open world with only a handful of things to do over and over.

    First
    This is as generic as generic gets. A massive and undeniably beautiful open world with only a handful of things to do over and over.

    First and foremost, let me just say that this should NOT be played singleplayer. The characters and dialog are so unbelievably one dimensional that you will find yourself groaning as every single attempt at humour falls flat. Throw between one and three friends into the mix and there it is possible to glean some entertainment out of this.

    Taking on a fortified base in complete silence, synchronising shots with your sniper buddy while your two man ground team move in the shadows. There is no denying how much of a badass you will feel when you nail that headshot or wipe out an entire squad of enemies in a single flurry of sniper fire. Even when things don't go to plan, the subsequent firefights are hectic and sometimes hilarious.

    Unfortunately, you will find yourself doing the same thing every half hour. There are side missions you can tackle, but the variety is extremely lackluster. Trigger a radio antenna then race to another, defend a radio when it broadcasts rebel propaganda, steal a guarded chopper/plane or stop and tag a supply convoy. That's basically it. There are so many tactics that can be applied to complete these objectives, but you will quickly find the best method and this suddenly becomes routine and dull.

    There is a nice level of customisation with your character's gear and weapons, allowing you to spend literally hours tweaking your setup and making yourself look as professional or as goofy as possible. Sadly, the game is lacking in the "goofy" aspect, instead trying for force the serious tone of the game. There are weapon paints available such as bright red or pink, but surprise surprise, you have to pay extra for them.

    In my personal opinion, you can get ten times the enjoyment out of GTA:Online, which doesn't limit you to four players, has PVP if that's your bag, and is constantly being updated for free.

    Ghost Recon Wild-lands could have been a good game but sadly its only a mediocre one. There are a number of aspects to this game that let itGhost Recon Wild-lands could have been a good game but sadly its only a mediocre one. There are a number of aspects to this game that let it down. The most obvious is the Uplay interface that can best be described as a marketing tool. Unlike Steam that mostly gets out of your way Uplay is simply a nuisance that constantly trying to sell you things even when the game is loading.

    The second biggest failing is the confused mix of arcade style game play and strategic military shooter. It should be one thing but really its both and its a discordant mix. Things constantly pop up on your screen, rubbish about movies, tutorials, insistent requests to join on line play and other nonsense that like Uplay simply get in the way and can best be described as "screen graffiti". This arcade interface is simply a nuisance and its not helped by a needlessly complex mapping system that in trying to help you simply confuses. Less would have been far more.

    With its open world game environment you would have thought good vehicle physics would be a must. Well you would be wrong again. Ground vehicles handle like buses with choppers being the only decent form of transport.

    Game plays a mess too. Because of the annoying arcade interface you often find it difficult to work out simply things, mission parameters and the like. The net result if failed missions where have to go in with no real idea of what it is you are to do let alone how you are expected to achieve anything.

    Gun physics are mediocre too. Things like zooming sniper sights are limited and poorly executed. Guns feel awkward and under powered. Enemies seem to know where you are for no obvious reason turning you into a bullet magnet in short order.

    I played this game half halfheartedly and could not really get into it. It's deficits are so conspicuous and extensive that like Far Cry 5 its more frustrating than it could ever be said to be enjoyable.

    A unenthusiastic 4/10 from me.
