The Ghosts’ upgradable skills, along with a vast arsenal of weapons, vehicles and drones, help them defeat their almighty enemy.

    It’s quickly becoming my favorite first-person shooter of the year, thanks to its impressive landscape, captivating storyline and fully customizable characters. The short list of negatives pale in comparison its highlights. All and all, Ghost Recon: Wildlands delivers and should easily be a contender for 2017’s best first-person shooter, if not best game. It’s magnificent, unique, and certainly worth your time.

    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands proves that Ubisoft has taken what they have learned from all of their previous titles and used it to work for the future. There are noticeable aspects from Rainbow Six, The Division, Assassin's Creed and Far Cry all at work here without ever making Ghost Recon feel like a copy. What may be lacking in the single player elements of the game are made up for over and over again when playing with friends. If you are on the fence about getting this to join with your buddies, bite that bullet and grab this game up. If you don’t have an online connection or anybody to play with, maybe hold off and catch it when it goes on sale.

    Despite the generic setting, and an over-abundance of Ubisoft-style menus, levels, and statistics, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands is a fun, tactical, engaging shooter with plenty of depth and good AI. The freedom and nature of the open-world mission approach, while familiar to Far Cry and Phantom Pain fans, allows for some truly creative tactical experiences and enjoyable gameplay moments. Stable matchmaking and the random nature of human players make the co-op a blast as well.

    Wildlands is a fun sandbox open-world shooter from Ubisoft Paris with a massive amount of content that is best experienced with other players in its seamless drop-in, drop-out four-player co-operative multiplayer mode.

    Ghost Recon Wildlands is a fun romp in a huge world that allows you tackle each encounter in as tactical or non-tactical manner as you please. Your fellow players are what bring this game to life, so best not look at this as a single-player experience.

    It feels like such a painstakingly created world could have hosted a more interesting and considered exploration of its themes. As it is, Wildlands is a vast, pretty and militaristic playground for friends to charge around in. And at that, you cannot deny its potency.

    Wildlands is a bad fu.king game -- it completely fails at everything it aspires to be. It's a bad co-op game, it's a bad shooter, it's a bad open-world game, and the writing is terrible. At best, the game is boring. At worst, it's frustrating. I suppose the visuals are worthy of some praise, but you can just look at screenshots for free. I cannot recommend Ghost Recon Wildlands to anyone, unless you're directly related to someone on the development team. If that is the case, by all means, support your family! Everyone else: stay away.

    Been playing since it went live solo, I do plan to play coop down the road, but I wanted to let people know solo is great. I had read peopleBeen playing since it went live solo, I do plan to play coop down the road, but I wanted to let people know solo is great. I had read people hating on A.I. during beta, but just put a couple early skill points in sync shot and it works great. The stealth and sprawling open world, the banter of your teamates really make for an immersive experience. I feel like this game took the best aspects of far cry, division and watchdogs and threw out the crap. I have no regrets on this purchase, and I doubt fans of shooters, stealth and open world games will either. Expand

    Open world vasto e dettagliato. Grafia di altissimo livello. Moltissime operazioni disponibili, diverse l'una dall'altra nella modalitàOpen world vasto e dettagliato. Grafia di altissimo livello. Moltissime operazioni disponibili, diverse l'una dall'altra nella modalità campagna. Ti puoi muovere liberamente nell'open world senza dover seguire un percorso o una missione prestabilita. La storia è avvincente. Armi realistiche. Finalmente un gioco spara-tutto in prima persona completo ma facile da usare. Scorre che è un piacere. Secondo me il migliore. Expand

    I didn't think there was a such thing as too big an open world until I played this game. The gameplay is exactly like Far Cry or Metal Gear,I didn't think there was a such thing as too big an open world until I played this game. The gameplay is exactly like Far Cry or Metal Gear, inasmuch as you sneak up to a base, mark all the enemies, try to take them down silently or just blast your way in. The problem is, it's almost always impossible to get them all silently because they realistically (but un-funly) stay inside buildings or somehow know exactly where you are if you miss a shot at them. And, you guessed it, once they're alerted, they'll sound an alarm and get an attack helicopter on you and that's that. Initially the game stays fresh by implementing squad tactics, but the map is so huge and the missions so numerous that you invariably feel like you've done that stupid mission where you have to silently interrogate a boss to get intel and you'll sigh when you realize your next objective is 17 kilometers away. The biggest problem is that the upgrade system is completely meaningless - you get such amazing skills as 5% less scope movement on a sniper rifle or 5% faster squad revive - so you never feel like you're getting any better. Even worse, the only way to get new guns (and actually be better) is to do a minimum of 3 of the aforementioned repetitive intel missions only to find the gun is buried in some cave 32 km away.

    Honestly, I played the game about 25 hours doing side missions and the main missions and I finished about 30% of the game's massive main mission to take down a drug kingpin. The though of how repetitive that journey would be led me to trade it in.

    Virtual Bolivia is sometimes stunning and I often found myself staring at the beautiful views it offers for long periods of time. This is whyVirtual Bolivia is sometimes stunning and I often found myself staring at the beautiful views it offers for long periods of time. This is why I think it's a shame that it's filled with dullest imaginable open world experience with its chores like missions and simplistic A.I. However, they have made a good job with character and weapon customisation which is deep and well build. All that is combined with an entirely blank story that could not keep me interested even for the briefest moment. Playing with friends improves the experience but overall these things don't make a good or even a mediocre game. Expand
