lol clearly they lost some points for not giving Gamespot enough advertising dollars. This game is a 8 minimum. I would give it an 8.5. Great single player campaign that gives you a lot of hours. Gunplay is better than Call of Duty. I mean I like COD but you can tell what a gross double standard Gamespot applies when they complain about this game being familiar but continue to praise COD when it's pretty much the same run and gun game every time around. AI has some flaws but not nearly as bad as people seem to make it out to be. Multiplayer is great and actually requires strategy unlike COD.
They said the magic words for me to pick this game up: "Lengthy Campaign Mode". It's been a long time since I've heard that said about a tactical shooter game. I can almost always depend on Ubisoft to come through for me.
i dont have friends and my gaming hours are messed up so i dont play multi-player.can i still have fun by myself with this game? thanx.
I'm gonna have to pick this up... kinda reminds me of the good old SOCOM days...3rd person shooters are hard to come by.
The guy on the video is right about one thing: the AI teammates, in the campaign, are messed up. No, actually ALL of the AI are messed up. It is so unfair that the teammates get to keep their camoflouge active when they fire their weapon or are running and the player can't. Also when they take out enemies they NEVER get detected, except when "dead body found", but the second the I take out an enemy(especially on "no alert allowed" objectives) then the "DETECTED: Gamertag" message appears and I have to go back to the checkpoint. I also find the enemies are just too aware, because sometimes if I take out an enemy that is out of sight, then some other enemy will impossibly find the dead body. The AI, I find(me, my personal self), are overpowered with their impossible skills that the player doesn't have. That is MY opinion though and I'm sticking to it, unless Ubisoft releases a patch or something to fix the AI problems.
this game is for people who are bored with the repeated gameplay style of AC and UNCHARTED..
this game really gives a new gameplay style experience which no other game in the market gives..
its a good combination of stealth and modern shooting gameplay.
I just watched a 5 minute review full of interesting concepts and no game breaking flaws or even anything that really bothered the reviewer and yet this is a 7.5? Lmao....I think I'm going to unbookmark gamespot seriously this is ridiculous....
Gameplay is nice on PC; but bugged out as heck. Kind of unplayable on high end systems. We need a patch!
lol people give this a bad review and whine about it because they cant sprint and headshot someone 300m away with a fork!, its ment to be realistic not cod..u cant jump around a corner spin around and expect to be able to shoot someone square in the eye from another contenant. (unles ur playing cod ofc)
this looks fun, i play bf, used to play mw before it bacame old and stale...
so a nice change of pace with this game would be nice =) itl complement bf well i think, bf dose the giant battles with vehichles i love so much, this will give me more intense shooting games i want to =) weee
7.5 is not terrible score people, it is 'good'.. 'terrible' score was around 3.5. this game still in the 'good game list'. however i also agree the score is not high as i expected.
The one thing I find funny is that critic's praise call of duty for it's smooth control's and gun play mechanic's. Even though they are not even close to the real thing. I collect firearm's and I have shot many different gun's in my life and I have to say that call of duty it the weakest when it comes to replicating real world gun's. Games like Ghost recon and rainbow six do a far better job then call of duty yet every time a ghost recon game comes out critic's complain that the gunplay feel's "off" or "uninspired" Which is not true. The reason shooting a gun while moving, firing from the hip and taking 200 yard shots with a AK is difficult in these games is because they are difficult in the real world. Now I am not trying to toot my own horn but I can hit a man sized target with my 1938 mossin nagant from 400 yards away with iron sight's, But I am just awesome :P
how much more fucking remarkable can the gunplay be? what do other games like call of duty have that this game doesn't? nothing. i would get it if they said this about a game in a setting like Halo, but come on. give this game some slack. it's actually pretty badass.
I agree with FreedomPrime.
I'm sick of watching how CoD gets high marks, while anything other than that gets lower marks (excluding BF3).
The graphics in this game look really weak especially for a new game. Overall I would say that 7.5 was maybe a bit of a undercut and the reviewer didn't really press on many issues to justify why it was given an average score.
Ghost recon 7.5 for feeling "familiar" yet call of duty keep's getting higher reviews year over year. Good job gamespot. This is why I prefer IGN.
Good gameplay,bad graphics (what happen here ubisoft?),amazing solo campaign,awful glitchy cooperative multiplayer in the moments (in the campaign) where the characters move alone protecting a v.i.p.and that all you have to do is shoot, everything turns glitchy when you play with friends (if you play alone it doesn't happen) an awful development mistake if you ask me they have release a title update but it does not fix it. Multiplayer is ok but nothing amazing.
amazing campaign one of the best ive played in a while not bad survival type game mode.(Guerrilla) but the thing that lets this game down is the multiplayer. it frankly sucks..... the ghost teams guns are over powered, it dosent switch your team after each round the gameplay feels sluggish online and unbalanced. 7.5/10 is the best score for this game its lucky it didnt get less because the multiplayer has let this down a lot when u die and you watch the kill cam 90% of the time the kill cams aim isnt even on u, so u wonder why u died its laggy and a pile of crap in my opinion great campaign though. if i was u peeps i wouldnt get this game if your only after multiplayer because its not worth it for the online experience in my opinion.
From what I've seen this game is wayyyyyyyyyy better than COD or BF. That run and gun stuff gets old fast. Stealth, I think, allows for a more intense game, makes the user think before reacting.
this is a new third person game , and some guys do not like first person shooter like me .. so this a good game for me .. cod and bf3 are to far from this game . it has it has customization for weapons .. leveling up and stealth action .. i think this good . no other game has stealth gameplay like this game .. i have been whiting for a stealth game like this one, for a long time .. if you play metal gear solid 4 online you will love this game .
The video review and the score don’t really add up here. I usually pay a lot of attention to GameSpot reviews, but they seem to be giving it a lower score just to come across as more critical than other review sites.
I’m glad I watched the video. At a glance, I was going to avoid this game based on the score it got and spend my money on Max Payne 3 instead. New option: get both.
To me the game looks very ugly artistically and with that said I will look to try other games. I really don't like how things look when stealth is on and thus I won't be playing it.
ahhh, tom clancy and his ever present russophobia... what else is new!? disgustingly broken russian language? check! funny inscriptions here and there? check! I mean, why do they even bother!? just scramble some random gibberish (like in Little Kings`s Story for example) and it`s good to go! probably even cheaper and faster too! apart from that - good game! i`ve just completed pretty lengthy campaign and not particularly unhappy or annoyed about it. still it would be nice if pc version turned out to be different game like ubi\grin did with graw2 for 360 and pc.)
@MasterYevon They made the game seem dope they wyllin' with that rating
@carloscanalesv I've played a few missions into the single player campaign and I'm finding it pretty enjoyable. It gives you a bunch of challenges for each mission, some of which can be pretty tough and require a few retries to accomplish. Found myself restarting from the same checkpoint at least 20 times just to complete one challenge I set my sights on. I played it so many times I knew the exact patrol paths of ALL of the enemy units in the area. But never did I once think, "damn this is draining my life! ARGH!" I actually enjoyed it!
I get sick of games pretty quickly these days but I find myself wanting to replay the campaign once I'm done with it just to do things "better" (more stealth like, more tactical, etc..). I can't think of any game I've felt that with in recent times!
I'm not a fan of third person shooters (gears of war bores me to bits) but I was a big fan of the early RB6 and GR games, and I must say, I'm pleasantly surprised with this one!
Unfortunately I haven't finished the campaign so I can't comment on it's length. Still unsure? Try rent a copy first.
@thequickshooter Both are good but are also very tactical. Trying to play coop alone is nigh impossible and multiplayer also demands teamwork in capping objectives. Online you'll get destroyed if you don't take advantage of equipment like sensor grenades and drones. That help?
Listen to it closely and you'll find out the answer to your question.
Just finished the game and I'd give it a 6.0 . It doesn't worth playing.
@FreedomPrime I can't agree with you more
I find that they over estimate and under appreciate most of all games.
IGN is possible a bit more consistant.
@Decro111 The Cooperative Multiplayer, you cannot play with random people, they must be on your friend's list. And also, the graphics, many have been encountering bugs with Low resolution textures.
@Skith1 I play games like halo but I also think this game is cool too, I just love the amount of detail they put into the game.
@icybl00d3d because this is gamespot
You really seem like the type of person who isnt pleased easy. When I first saw this game I thought it looks pretty cool, but im still not sure if im going to get it or not. The gameplay looks pretty well set up though...
@wankwish You do realize Tom Clancy is an American author, who actually writes very realistic and detailed novels. Ubisoft is a French/Canadian company who has the rights to create games loosely based on Tom's novels. Don't blame Clancy for Ubisofts lack of realism when it comes to the voice-acting. C'mon man, that's misplaced rage if i've ever seen it...
@robertcain i asked some guys around that played the game they said it's a good campigan but the multiplayer is not battlefield class but it's basic fun nonetheless so i'll buy the game if the prices drop down a bit
@max-hit You've played the game so you're obviously giving it a bias-ed opinion. I'm basing my question solely on what I saw on the review. I never said it was a good or bad game and honestly, I don't care about your opinion since I probably don't share your taste :D good day
@c0kemusheen first of all, where was no rage \ well maybe a little bile \ but game is good - remember? \ i do know it`s just a logo \ and yes in credits roll there are 2 writers under tom clancy`s name \ so instead of "his" i should have typed "its" \ my bad \ and second - with all those fun facts you kinda missed my point - why do they even bother involving foreign languages if they can not deliver!? -was my rhetorical question ) `cos the atmosphere is falling flat for all those who even remotely familiar... ok i'll stop talking now \ life goes on... \ ...in Dragon`s Dogma :p
