The Ghost Recon series has been around for along time. While some more popular franchises follow the more standard “run and gun” military formula, Recon has always been one to let you step back and survey the options before directing your team how to best fulfill your objective. This iteration tries to freshen things up by taking a step out of reality by giving you some futuristic camo, ammo, and firearms. The game does pull a little inspiration from more action oriented games like COD: Modern Warfare, which does add some needed variety, but mostly it holds true to what made the series a standout from the beginning. It also has multiplayer, so grab three of your friends for some engaging mission based co-op.
