First Look At Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldiers

Tom Clancy

Hello there TPS fans! Are you running out of shooter games to play? Are you getting tired of shooters taking place in the modern day period or shooters that take place in a World War II setting? Frankly, I’m tired of shooters simulating the events that just happened recently, like the war against Iraq. Why don’t game publishers step up and think of something new and fresh? All right — now that my rant is over, there is actually a shooting game that is on my radar and at first blush looks like a total winner: Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldiers.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldiers was initially titled as Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon 4 (it’s actually the 4th game in the series if you exclude the expansions) and was going to be released in March 2012. However, Ubisoft is delaying the release until May in order to fine tune the game. For those who are not familiar with the series, it is a third-person shooter game. Ghost Recon: Future Soldiers takes place in a futuristic setting of Russia which is currently engaged in a grueling war. The entire mission includes visiting places such as Pakistan, Zambia, Russia and Norway. The Ghosts will be deployed in different missions in order to defeat and neutralize the ultra-nationalist force that took over Russia and are currently invading neighboring countries.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldiers is mostly a third-person shooter, but some instances (such as shooting with the aim sight) require the player to switch to first-person for more accurate targeting and aiming. The player will have to control four Ghosts with different expertise — a sniper weapon expert, a commando, a Ghost lead, and a reconnaissance expert. You will have to be strategic with the positioning of your Ghosts so that you will succeed in your missions. In my opinion, strategic shooters are best and offer a challenge to serious gamers, as opposed to shooters that any button-masher can master.

Since the game is set in the future, you will be armed with some amazing futuristic weaponry and equipment. My favorite is “optical camouflage” which will basically allow your Ghosts to become invisible. Optical camouflage will be extremely limited so that players will not be able to rely heavily on the tech to accomplish missions. The optical camouflage is designed to automatically turn off if the Ghosts move too fast, fire weapons, or are being shot. I have to mention another neat feature of the game that I like — Gunsmith. With Gunsmith, you can customize your weapons. The customization is very deep as it includes tweaking every part of the gun. Good news for Xbox 360 users, as the game allows the use of the Kinect. Customization will be done through hand gestures and even voice commands.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldiers is set to release in May 2012. The game will be coming to PS3, Xbox 360 and Windows. Look for it at your favorite game store — the future is now!

Review: Duke Nukem Forever

Good of Duke Nukem Forever
Shrinking enemies is the real fun here and stomping on them.

Bad of Duke Nukem Forever
The platform seems boaring and the driving sections is too long. Impact of shooting is not prominent and the visuals are ugly with jerky frame rates. The game is not at all shocking and even funny or sexy.

Duke Nukem Forever Review

The wait is over after the release of Duke Nukem Forever, but it to be a seems unattractive and tedious sci-fi shooter game. Duke may be an icon in the gaming market but this time its is in the category of poorly paced levels.

Many will find the cigar-chomping alpha male in the game as misogynist pic and few may consider it to be a clever and ironic take on macho cliches. The Duke’s action is not liked by crowd and he occasionally spouts with sexist quip. He also gets a topless stripper’s lap dance and uses words starting with “f.” However, nothing provocation or sexy is found in the game. Also there is little joy in it, little fun and little excitement. There are just few occasions where you can get a glimpse of digital nipples and sometimes shoot few brain-dead aliens.

Duke Nukem is mid-1990s video game culture icon that was vulgar, brash and also committed to one-liner art. The new Duke Nukem Forever is not a revitalization of the early days first-person shooter games but it is muddles with hypocritical exercise irritationally with shooting mechanics.
