Maybe don't give the quicklook to people who aren't into the type of game and have shit on it every time they come back from seeing it at a show.. Or is that an unreasonable suggestion?

has ANYONE expressed any interest in this?

might pick up on sale, doesn't seem offensively bad

Looks more interesting than Call of Duty of Battlefield campaigns.

That sandstorm sequence was pretty cool

@MrKlorox: How the hell did they shit on it? They seemed to quite like it, they barely said any negative things really.

Aside from the majority of comments below? I remember saying it looked cool a long time back and the prevailing sentiment around these forums was that Jeff didn't like it so it probably sucked and that I should look forward to something else.

In a number of bombbcasts in the past few years. Usually after they come back form an event where it was shown.

@MrKlorox: I meant the GB guys obviously

@MrKlorox: This isn't a bombcast, this is the quick look so how is that relevant then?

Posted by LikeaMetaphor

You totally shot a civilian, but you shot a bad guy to do it. Acceptable loss?

You clearly didn't read my initial post before responding to it.

Then don't fucking do one if you're not going to do it maturely, obviously. Also, choosing someone who is abjectly against something isn't the same thing as choosing someone who is merely uninterested.

Kinda weird that the game just ignored the whole thing. Bugs?

Reminds me a lot of Splinter Cell: Conviction, and I loved that game. Colour me highly interested!

Ah, those sweet, sweet morality grenades. I always wanted those!

You guys are right about the significant 'style over substance' design philosophy of this game as far as the futuristic warfare theme is concerned. Since I often don't like military style shooters with true SciFi elements I'm personally happy about this and to me it sure does look fucking stylish and nice, pointless as it may be functionally. Generally the game seems to strike a nice balance between silly videogame stuff and tactical concepts to make you feel like you're actually part of an elite military force. I guess what I'm saying is it seems like a game that allows dumb people like me to feel like a badass tactical genius.

Downsides would be the moronic dudebro cutscenes that at least seem to be a relatively small part of the game and very uneven graphics. Great animations (I love when the soldier rushes towards the falling dead body after taking the stealth shot, presumably to prevent a 'thud' noise and raising attention) and beautiful settings but outdated textures, especially in close-up, and clipping issues.

Maybe it's an effect of little to no expectations but all in all the new Ghost Recon looks pretty good to me.

Regenerating health and not even a health bar?  That is fucking disappointing.  Just another shooter for dumb people. Love that they are dumbing down console franchises.

I really like Ghost Recon and Ghost Recon 2. Those two games were pretty rad

Posted by groposo

why the fuck did Jeff do this quick look? all I got from it was that he has some shit going on in his life that made him unable to even try and like this game (or even try to play it the way it is supposed to be played). He kept fixating on the most stupid shit. Don't get me wrong, I think it's funny when they make fun of tiny things in the games, most of the times.

Not caring about something is not a good enough reason to say it's bad or stupid. Sorry if the comment is too long, but this stuff has been bothering me for a while now.

Huh... I didn't even get that vibe at all. Between this quick look and what I've seen previously of the game, he was playing the game right. I don't really see where all the hate for this quick look is coming from. A lot of their complaints of the game came from that it was "style over substance" which is what I noticed from the what I've seen, such as the needless text in the sky that provided mostly useless intel. The main complaint is that this game just seems like a mediocre 3rd person shooter.

This game seems too easy.

When Ryan says, "This has some gnarly texture work..." Is that good or bad? Im not up on my Cali slang. Im from the east coast.

@groposo: Could I ask how you are supposed to play Ghost Recon?

Posted by BoOzak

I'll admit that sandstorm sequence looked pretty awesome, but none of it seems very fun to play. Yet another game where the emphasis is on style instead of gameplay. Not that I havent played and enjoyed games that put gameplay behind everything else but this alleged 'future' seems like the same bullshit weve seen in every Call of Duty in the last 5 years.

Sad really, I remember enjoying GRAW and to a lesser extent GRAW2. But this doesnt look like it's headed in the right direction. I'd rather something along the lines of Full Spectrum Warrior but maby a little more streamlined. I dont wanna have to learn military jargon, and i'm not some wannabie jarhead who thinks any of these so called skills will translate into real life.

Game looks generic and boring as hell.

Posted by CDUB901

And yet more bitching in the comments from users who can't take someone elses opinion of a game as just that...an opinion

one little negative remark from any of the crew and everyone has to get all defensive of the game

and asking why Jeff did the quicklook? probably because no one else wanted to play it because everyone is tired of shooter after shooter after shooter

and sure, they could have an "unbiased" point of view...but then the videos would be really quiet because wtf would they talk about? We come to video game sites to get point of views and guess what, they don't seem to fond of it, big fuckin whoop

just go to youtube and search "future solider gameplay" if you want to see what this game is like without opinions...it's that easy folks....don't go to video game sites with people who review and cover games for a living and not expect them to say what they honestly think of a game in a video

Posted by AndrewB

I can get behind a more tactical shooter, but the problem I see in this Quick Look (not necessarily indicative of the whole game) is that they set up way too many scenarios of "hey, there's four dudes, we've got four dudes, so let's line up those shots." If a game is just a matter of painting a target, it sounds... well, more fun than turret sequences, but not by a whole lot.

It's bad, the texture looked kind of grimy.

You think that if the GB crew think a game is bad/medicore from the previous times they have seen it then they just shouldn't do a QL at all? You are totally wrong. So many quick looks wouldn't have been made if only people with an interest were allowed to QL it. Duke Nukem Forever for example. You want them to just not make that? Such a fool.

Posted by Butano

Is the PC version of this game the same as the consoles? The GRAW titles for PC were first-person.

No, dimwit. I'm saying that the people who have the least interest in a thing should be the LAST people who dedicate themselves to showing something off. And if nobody on staff is interested enough to give an open honest and unbiased look, then they shouldn't do one. Just like that shitty Sniper Elite V2 QL. Duke Nukem Forever is a shit example since Jeff was clearly interested in seeing how it turned out after the decade of development and the game has become a monument in gaming history before it ever even came out.

It has more preorders than every recent game bar Diablo 3. It has twice the preorders of Max Payne 3. I'd say there's been plenty of interest.

Yeah! I can't believe their reviews of the Harry Potter Wii games. Couldn't they get someone on the staff with a deep love of Harry Potter based, or at least movie tie-in based, Wii games to review it? They don't do any justice to those games unless someone with a passion for Harry Potter games reviews them. Instead it's all snark, snark, snark. Bias!

Edited by Soapy86

Man, if I didn't know any better I would never guess that this is supposed to be a Ghost Recon game. This series has gone irredeemably down hill.

Edited by Fudge91

I'd love to see some more stealth based third person shooters like this, but this just seems way too easy. Something with Hidden and Dangerous 2 game play, combined with these graphics would be awesome..

Posted by DarkbeatDK

Seems serviceable, but personally I'm not really keen on the TactiCool stuff and I think that everything with Tom Clancy on it is suuuuuper boring.

Posted by coaxmetal

that active camo doesn't seem very realistic, it's all flickery and the eye notices movement and shit really easily, it would probably be better if it was like slower to change but not flickery or static.

I wish life was third person.

Posted by MrMazz

Even for all its future trappings this seemed pretty generic in terms of gameplay that sync shot stuff was cool though.

Edited by AngelN7

So wait .. oh MY GOD that part with the guy getting out of the truck and the the camera guys following him just made my realize in all those 3rd person shooters you just play as the camera guy not the dude you're controlling! no wonder why they look so cinematic.

Edit : Dude what the shit you guys killed a civilian and didn't loose that mission an no one said anything?

Posted by MiniPato

These soldiers kinda suck. I mean, one of them just shot that lady at 9:40.

Ok, that sandstorm with those magnetic goggles was pretty cool.

Posted by chan05

I really love the new gameplay additions. Loved all the ghost recon games and while this is different it is still close enough to the Advanced Warfighter games for me to give it a try

Posted by TehJedicake

and of course I have to wait till June 12th to play the superior version, ugh...

Posted by PillClinton

This looks kind of offensively mediocre.

Tom Clancy's Chinny Recon more like.

Oh Jeff, you shot that civi lady without even knowing it...
