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

    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.

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

    Disclaimer - I'm partial to 3rd person military-type shooters, but don't really vibe on fantasy games or rpgs -

    I've played nearly 200 hours (embarrassingly) in story-mode only (sorry, pvp is just too fast paced and not my thing) and it keeps getting better with each level-up and new weapon discovered (OK, I reached top tier a while ago but it's still fun). Exploring Bolivia is great fun especially with little and big mountain/jungle/desert/forest hideouts all over the place. Villages and towns can be infested with lurking cartel members (or Unidad, the corrupt para-military police) and it's up to you to decide if you're going to snipe them from a distance or go in guns blazing. Each scenario is fluid, intense, but with a plethora of weapons to choose from and infinitely customize, each approach to a situation is different if you want it to be. Drone recon is wonderful, easy to use, and very helpful, as is the rebel assistance you can employ in ever-improving ways the more you progress within the game. I've nothing left to discover in this massive open world, but I find myself still playing it often, which is the sign of an iconic game in my opinion.

Let me explain, the good side is that the graphics are pretty well made and the game play of stealth is amazing too, The shooting is good as well. The bad part are the AIs, they are not recognized by enemies and dont do anything thing in the game so this game is really made to play with friends if youre playing the campaign! The multiplayer mode of 4v4 is very interesting as it is actually fun which i never thought it would be, but be prepared it is a slow paced game so its not for everyone! Expand

    - your actions and play-style have no consequence whatsoever
    - your party in single player can shoot through walls
    - enemies spawn randomly
    - every mission is virtually the same
    - driving and flying mechanics suck

A Ubisoft, uma das empresas que maisO Ghost Recon Wildlands tem tudo pra ser um bom jogo, infelizmente, é produzido pela empresa errada. A Ubisoft, uma das empresas que mais produziu jogos para essa geração, deixou de buscar qualidade para buscar quantidade. Esse jogo é exatamente isso, o modo single player é divertido durante algumas horas, com os amigos, fora isso, nada mais e do que passar horas invadindo bases e mais bases, sem mencionar a estupidez da IA. Outro ponto é o recente “Modo Ghost” que chegou tarde para o jogo, quando todos estavam desinteressados. Mas o principal que mantém o jogo vivo ainda é o modo multiplayer, que está quebrado, não há muitas opções de mapas, de modos de jogo,, você é limitado a escolher as armas e os equipamentos que já estão predefinidos por classe, algumas classes estão desbalanceadas, não há um filtro de partida entre os níveis dos jogadores, há bugs no jogo e a Ubisoft vai aparecer a cada três ou quatro meses com um update de mais de 70GB pra colocar um mapa e dois personagens. Como os demais jogos da Ubisoft que não deram certo (como o popular Rainbow Six Siege), este é só mais um com um bom trailer, uma boa ideia e que a Ubisoft desperdiçou. Expand
