    "Ghost Recon: Future Soldier "fits the market expectations of gamers these days" but is nonetheless "more true to Ghost Recon than Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, in terms of who the Ghosts are and what they do", UK brand manager Matt Benson has told OXM."

    This is funny. Wait till Battlefield 3 obliterates the market with their sales. I'm looking forward to big maps in BF3, not these congested maps with ridiculous choke points like COD/GRFS will most likely have. I hope Ubisoft proves me wrong, and we at least get a taste of some old school Ghost Recon gameplay. I'm just highly doubtful at this point.

    I just miss the old days of Recon when we had some big *** maps, but I understand Ubisoft is salivating over the sales previous COD games have made. Ghost Recon used to be in a class of it's own, now it seeks to do what the other games do.

    Imitating someone else flatters that person and demeans yourself.

    A new challenger appears...And it's due out right around the same time as GRFS.

    And in this case, they know exactly where their place is in the market and they're looking to take full advantage of it. At the same time they're expanding and improving the core of what made the game so successful in the first place. And they're inviting fans to help in the creative process.

    Ubisoft should leave the chest-high walls to Gears of War, the tiny chokepoint-filled maps to COD, and the cloak to Harry Potter. Instead they should imitate Valve's market sense and fanbase interaction and make a real, updated GR game.

    Dude... That would make SENSE. They can't DO that, it is apparently against their corporate policy now.

I would still choose GR over CS just because FS is still more tactical than CS. I mean don't get me wrong, I liked all of the CS games, but it turned into the a COD sense really quickly. People only ever used 2 guns, noobs populated many teams, and many just spammed grenades and mines all over the place.

    Then why are you guys giving FS so much slack for adding "noobish cloaks" when every shooter is a noobfest?

    Because GR didn't used to be a noobfest. It used to be a game for people who wanted to play a game that made them think instead of having enemies pointed out to you and highlighted with big red boxes. You used to have to be aware of your surroundings and move carefully if you wanted to remain hidden, not activate the magic invisibility fairies and the big red box jammer gizmo. They're desperate for the "casual" market, and the casual player is exactly the kind of person you're complaining about when playing Counter-Strike.
