    Trailer NSFW!

    Looks fantastic, reminds me of the old ones and other games like hidden and dangerous.

    Looks similar to the recent Far Cry series, with up to 4 x player co-op.

    More pics.

    Was almost interested until it turned in to a 4-way 3rd person cover shooter QTE-circlejerk.

    I'd love another good tactical shooter, like Ghost Recon or Rainbow Six 3 etc. Doesn't seem like anyone wants to develop one.

    Much easier to make a big "open world" and slap in some nice assets, plenty of chest height walls and shithouse AI for the X-BRO crowd.

    And, how pissweak of Ubisoft to use the Ghost Recon title, how averse to new IP do you have to be? I mean it's a 3rd person action game- Ghost Recon was a first person, slow, tactical and difficult shooter. This game looks like a 10 year old could get all the very import achievements with little trouble.

    Most games with high levels of difficulty aren't that popular anymore. I'm hoping this will have lots of those moments like Op Flashpoint where you're snapped in the head and never see the shooter. It's hard to tell so far. Also doesn't mention if single player has control of the squad does it?

    Looks pretty now but its due for a graphical downgrade, much like The Division.
    This ain't Ghost Recon.

    Whilst the trailer makes it look good the previous footage looked terrible.

    Im actually pretty keen for this.
    Enjoyed the division and this looks like similar gameplay just different location so providing it doesnt feel too 'rinse and repeat' I should enjoy it.
    Doesnt look 'graphically' exciting compared to some modern titles but still good enough

    Hopefully it will be all about the gameplay which will always be paramount to me (and most others seem to agree)... flashy graphics don't make the game ;)

    Edit: If they screw up the gameplay... " game over, man ! "

    The in game footage makes it look more like GTA than ghost recon, I think we will be very dissapointed. I want a game that is true to the original ghost recons with 1 shot kill.

    Another downgrade. Trailer looked good. Then when they released the gameplay, I LOL'ed. Not even a bargain bin buy.

    Just for reference, this is an actual Ghost Recon game :



    First one, proper tactical shooter.

    Another nope from me. Looks like a pretty forgettable game.
