Typo in the very first part of the video, the subtitle says they're in the Western Provice. Excellent.

This is a pretty good looking game, especially for being on a console. Lots of little subtle touches. I like how the active cammo doesn't fully cloak you, which is a lot more realistic. Granted... it doesn't really make you all that invisible either lol.

I've actually been enjoying this game quite a bit. The gameplay feels as thoug they merged a lot of the elements I loved about GRAW with the a touch of some of the movement from Splinter Cell: Conviction. Graphics are great, and can't wait to see the PC version in action.

The story/voice acting could be a little less hokey, although I enjoy the kind of MGS 4 feel of the world. The multiplayer, however, has been outstanding so far.

This doesn't really seem like a ghost recon game. The ability to take tons of damage combined with the inability to control your squad, makes it seem like a straight forward run-and-gun game or a cover hopper. I have to agree the lack of feedback from the squad members is surprising, although if it was in the game, it would make the game even easier.

Very few letter Ns survived to see the future.

Loved GRAW 1 for Xbox 360. Felt atmospheric and cool. Not sure I like the Sci-Fi (however probable) part of this game.

Please go back to the old player, the video quality has dropped sharply.

the accent of the African soldiers is unnerving.

The game seems a little on the easy side. For a seemingly stealth-focused game, the maps are quite linear, and it seems like you can always mark all of the targets at pretty much zero risk to yourself. The only reason Jeff dropped stealth is that he seems to be pretty impatient with that type of stealth mechanic of meticulously noting each guy.

The sync shot seems satisfying, but with so little deviations from the central path, it seems like you're always going to walk forward and have the 2-4 enemies in the area plainly presented to you, and then it's a matter of tagging them and taking them all out.

I normally like stealth games or stealth sections in games, but his was so goddamn mind numbingly boring. Including the action shooty parts, those were a snooze too.

And that is some incredibly advanced active camo tech that works on all armor/skin/surface/etc with no major power source too, while most of their other gear seems simply modern. Weird disconnect of technology mismatch.

Maybe I'm spoiled by my hot PC, but this game looks not so great visually. The framerate the shadows and lighting is also pretty bland, the bland textures...

Okay, none of that is anything but nitpicking, so I'll admit to sounding like a whiny bitch. I guess I just wanted something special for this game after loving the GRAW series and this thing looks as mediocre as it can possibly get. I'll probably still rent it, though, as I prefer slower-paced shooters and they are hard to come by.

Fucking hilarious QL, but sort of unexciting game.

Welcome to 2012! It's unfortunate to say the least.

This actually looks pretty fun. I still want to go back to the previous games and play them before I get this though

Posted by AvianFlame

Yeah, the new player's video quality is substantially worse, and the audio also appears to have taken a hit.

The enemies speak a very fluent brazilian portuguese... So weird.

Posted by Chewii101

Does anyone else have issues with the new player? I'm on Windows 7 using Chrome and the video stutters and breaks up constantly.

Posted by seanord

In the future, there are still trucks.

Posted by Napalm

This game seems like what Spec Ops: The Line will inevitably be: ambitious and interesting in spots, but fucking boring and underwhelming as a whole.

Posted by DrStrangepork

@seanord: Tom Clancy: Future Truck or trucks, trucks never change. I can't decide which I like better.

Posted by Cataphract1014

Game looks good but I think I'll wait for the PC version.

Yeah, first, i really don't think ppl speak Portuguese in Zambia, that's more Angola and Mozambique, and then, the Portuguese they speak in Africa, doesn't sound like Brazillian Portuguese at all, it's basically Portugal's Portuguese with an African accent.

I think it looks pretty fucking cool. Jeff seems dismissive, but I'm interested sure. The previous Warfighter games were fun and I like a shooter with group dynamics and more methodical pacing every once in a while.

Same here,not sure why Jeff is surprised that it's not more future-like.Correct me if I'm wrong but I think all the tom clancy games have used near future weapons based off of real technology,it's not like they were about to stop doing that.The sync shot seems like it might make the game too easy but then again Jeff did only show off 1 or 2 levels.

Posted by fox01313

Game seems okay though agreed that it is not future enough for me but the game is doing some good stuff with the UI & gunsmithing. Bringing something in from a previous bombcast, would love the floating text elements in a game like this to get the surly/sarcastic Clippy showing up to give you more information and/or entertainment.

A sneaky stealth camo game like this would be insanely amusing to get into one level where some solar flare or other plausible idea happened to turn off the active camo for a moment to have the player seeing ghost recon teams from all over the world all in the same vicinity on different missions, wave at the player's controlled character then all of them disappear to let the player finish the mission. Also if we are sending in the ghost recon teams in Africa or other parts, I'd love the soldiers to tell the command officer tha tthey are going to skip the mission to go after all the email spammers instead.

Wolverine wants to shut down those damned pillow mines!

Posted by spilledmilkfactory

This game is actually pretty awesome. And for those who don't think it's future-y enough, it becomes more so later. There's a level towards the middle where you basically command a tiny mech.

Posted by TheSouthernDandy

I think this looks pretty rad. Haven't played a GRAW in ages. I'd say I'm about due.

Posted by n0nametaz

This game seems very boring to me.

I havent really liked a Clancy game since RB6: LV, and while I want to like this, just....... meh

Posted by Roger778

That actually looks like a fun game. Very splinter-cell like, in that it focuses on stealth, and killing silently.

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

I agree. Never seen a more pissy user base than the one on this website.

Man, seeing that "Clear" pop up at the end of each encounter really made me realize how games have gone downhill. Here we have a supposedly tactical third person shooter that's all stealthy and tries to build suspense and has cool setpieces with sneaking through sandstorms and stalking targets and silently backstabbing guards... But it's so very eager to tell you HEY, there aren't any enemies left, you can run to the next arena now, kthxbye!
 
Games shouldn't freaking do that. Don't tell me that there aren't any enemies left. Hell, stop having dedicated sections for fighting, and sections between them that are for walking and exposition. That  started getting stale five years ago, now it's beyond formulaic. What happened to action games that never let you be sure if there was going to be enemies around the next corner or not? Games that would trick you into thinking you had cleared an area, then shot you in the back as you kept moving on because you didn't take one last look around? Games where half the level wasn't designated as a non-combat area that will play out the exact same way every time you play it because only one thing is programmed to happen there, and it's not controlled by the player?
 
Guys, what happened to video games?
 

@MrKlorox said:
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?
You're asking that someone who isn't in the core Giant Bomb crew take a look at all these games, because they were all already negatively biased toward this product due to the nature of their jobs. Even though having the crew only cover things they're genuinely interested in would mean significantly less content on this site, probably leading to its demise as they would barely be able to cover any games at all, the good news is that we already have you covered.
 
All you have to do is take a look at the many other video game websites available on the Internet, find one where one of the members specializes in the type of genre you would only like to see represented by someone who is passionate about it, and follow their coverage instead of Giant Bomb's. It's that easy!

Bravo guys! I forgot how funny quick looks could be. This had me rollin!!

Can wub chiptune on the battlefield?

Ok that was a stretch. Here's another:

Jeff QL: Double headshot without trying. Brad QL: Gun jams before being run over by APC.

Less of a stretch. ;)

My thoughts exactly. It looks like a step up from Conviction, which I loved.

Oh, I agree. Perhaps my response was worded a bit poorly. Tom Clancy games have been "dead," since the end of last generation. I meant that there's practically zero chance for a game like GR/GRIT to exist in today's market. You're right in that it's been that way for quite some time.

This is weird, the enemies speak Portuguese.

I feel like the game is making some kind of accusation about the FUTURE of Africa....? I don't know....

Posted by Rapid

Game looks alright, I like that it is trying to do something new than the regular military shooter. Not just a rollarcoaster ride or overly scripted events. I just remember all those ridiculous trailers.
