    While a departure for the franchise, Soldier delivers some of the most fun we've had in cloaked camouflage. [July 2012, p.84]

    The game is a little bit more accessible than the franchise is known for, but that's not a bad thing. Future Soldier offers more variety than any of its predecessors and won't bore you a single second, since every time you get tired of sneaking, the game gives you an excuse to bring out the big guns. [June 2012, p.78]

    The game's accessibility remains a key strength and highlight throughout both sides of the game, enabling both casual fans of squad shooters and more hardcore fans to find something they'll enjoy.
  4. Only a slight lack of polish lets things down. Although it's generally a pretty game, poor character models and clipping make the cast of genero-men look like beardy versions of Morph. For all the novels sold, Clancy's PS3 titles still can't tell a compelling story, either. Yet with such a brilliantly playful toolset and strong online features (including four-player campaign co-op and a compelling wave-based Guerrilla mode) this is the most impressive soldier since that blue American bloke with the indestructible shield.

    Ghost Recon: Future Soldier has several technical flaws and leans too much on the story devices conceived by several other modern day shooters to its detriment, but where its campaign diversifies with elements of stealth, teamwork and gadgetry it really shines. It's the multiplayer that turns out best, however, focusing on fewer modes of good quality that encourage co-operation rather than all-out killing.

    After a troubled development and several delays, this Future Soldier looks more like a military game of ­the ­past.

    Future Soldier does what is expected. It does little else and rarely deviates from the concepts accepted as standard. There's a sense of regret there with the opportunity to be something bigger, something more, but rather than expounding on the stylistic ambition, Future Soldier camouflages itself with borrowed ideas, blending seamlessly into a crowded genre.

    The best games this year are getting their behinds kicked in the dirt by most critics and users.
    Unrrated games are always my cup of tea. When most people don't like it, i do like it.
    Therefore i just give a 10 to boost the score up. Realistic score would be a 9 from my side.

    When certain console gamers are nagging about graphics, go buy a good pc then.
    On my plasma tv, Future Soldier looks very good. Graphics look a little bit like the Frostbite engine from Battlefield 3.

    A decent not so easy 10 hour single-player experience plus slick online mp and co-op missions, make Future Soldier a worthwhile package. The soundtrack is also very good.
    The online mp is not as tactical as you should expect, because you can still run, camp and shoot like it's a COD. (but Future Soldier is more difficult)
    But ofcourse i've played a lot of Red Orchestra 1 and 2 where teamwork is more present.
    But compared to previous Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six games, Future Soldier is more arcade shooting with some little tactical portion in the game-play.
    In other words, Ubisoft tried to find a balance so they can compete with all recent shooters.
    In my opinion, they succeeded and still kept it true to the Ghost Recon franchise.

    Just like Max Payne 3, it´s not a groundbreaking shooter.
    But it´s entertaining with some replay-value attached to it.

The gameplay is fantastic, and the graphics are very good as well (except for the cutscenes which are poor). The online multiplayer is where this game shines though. Huge amounts of unlockables and game types that are interesting and fun. Being a huge fan of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2, i must say this is definitely a permanent replacement and lives up to the Tom Clancy name. Expand
