    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

    My favoritest game ever. It's better than Assassin's Creed, Watch Dogs, GTA, and Just Cause as it combines and improves on EVERYthing thatMy favoritest game ever. It's better than Assassin's Creed, Watch Dogs, GTA, and Just Cause as it combines and improves on EVERYthing that those games are known for which is perfectly fine with me. After all, the saying does go: imitation is the purest form of flattery.

    Good: 1) EVERYthing is customizable (uniforms, paints/patterns, patches, and EVERY part of the weapons)
    2) 5 character save slots (great for me with 4 teenage sons)
    3) Squad controls are genious AND very timely in firefights

    Bad: 1) No control binding for selecting "crouch" since there is "soft cover" which means the character goes into cover just by approaching something that could technically act as cover.*

    *Even listing this as a "bad" feature of this game is really a technicality as Ubisoft most likely didn't have room in the controller layout to fit the cover option. Finding yourself with too much of a good thing shouldn't be bad.

    Long story short: this game is awesome. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Whatever path,I've been playing this game for the last two years and it is great. Co-Op or Solo this game is a fantastic tactical simulator. Whatever path, route, or experience you want to run in this game, your choices are at your own disposal. The game play is versatile dependent on your play style. If you want to sneak, snoop, and snipe or barrel in and unload on your enemies this is your game. The weapon variety, gear, customization still keeps me occupied. Wildlands is everything good about the Ghost Recon franchise. Expand

    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
