    Overview

    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars is a turn-based strategy game, the first of its kind in the Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon series. The title draws comparisons to Fire Emblem and the X-COM series of which the latter had been created by Shadow Wars producer Julian Gollop. As in previous series entries, the player assumes the role of the "Ghosts", an elite squadron of American soldiers. The Ghosts operate in secrecy, used to intervene in situations that the United States does not wish to be publicly involved with. In Shadow Wars, the Ghosts go from Kazakhstan to Siberia attempting to stop a new Russian empire. It is up to the Ghosts to bring peace to control the tensions in the Middle East that have risen due to Russian influence.

    Gameplay

    Campaign

    This is the mode that follows story of the Ghosts through their mission to covertly unravel a Russian conspiracy. Missions have three difficulty levels, which affect health and ability of enemies, as well as the amount of upgrades that the player can use on his Ghosts. PEC points are also awarded, which increase the player's overall rank.

    Skirmish Missions

    Skirmish missions test the skill of the player in three different difficulty levels in specific scenarios. The various classes are used in unique situations that highlight each class' abilities. PEC points are awarded in this mode as well.

    Multiplayer

    The Multiplayer Mission mode allows players to go up against friends using the same 3DS console in specially designed multiplayer skirmishes. PEC points cannot be earned in this mode.
