Let’s start this review on the same page. I HATE online multiplayer! WHAT you say (shock horror)? But it is true… I hate being a 26 year old man getting steam rolled by some pubescent teen who has the gall to inform me that he allegedly deflowered my mother and in turn could possibly be my biological father.
So when I saw Ghost Recon I thought … GREAT ANOTHER (INSERT CURSE WORD) MULTIPLAYER MONSTER! Is this the case? I’ll will never know… but what I do know is that this is the BEST military game that I have played… EVER! And I’ve played a lot of games.
Big call I know what with COD and now Battlefield fan boys probably ripping out their hair as they read this. However. I have one thing to say to you “GET OVER IT”.
Ghost Recon allowed me to feel like I was part of something bigger. Between changing nappies and preparing baths, having a team of special force elite soldiers rely on me is somewhat invigorating, chance for me to man up.
The story is well written with the usual bad guys implicated like Russian, Middle East and Africans. Also, let’s not get started on weapon choice and configurations! AH! This game is good… no… this game is (Insert favourite curse word of choice) GOOD!
So you might ask me…
You: “Your royal Tzarness what about COD?”
So then you will say: ”Your royal Tzarness what about Battlefield 3? Surely you considered this when reviewing this game?”
To which I would respond : “Meh”
So then you would try and argue… and I would get you impaled! Conversation over.
So let’s do the Excitometer!
Before I Got the Game: 3/10
First Time I Played it: 10/10
Half Way Through: 10/10
End of the Game: Not sure have not reached it yet… but I’ll hazard a guess 10/10
Would I Play it Again: HELL YES! Try and stop me.
