I am LOVING this game right now. The environments are beautiful and the story is actually pretty good, despite naysayers. I don't get where people think the graphics are outdated, wtf? The Controls are pretty good, though the transition between third person to 1st could possibly use some work, but everything else is awesome. This is a very nice change of pace from 1st person shooters. Well worth $60 in my opinion. I only hope that Splinter Cell 6 is either as good or if not, even better than GRFS. This game is a strong indicator that SC6 will be very good.
Maybe I will go out of line here, but the only way I was able to play Future Soldier was by ignoring the franchise it came from. Future Soldier just fails to be Ghost Recon. The first titles were hardcore tactical intrusion into enemy territory were single bullet could have ended your life. Then in 2006 Ubisoft wanted to move series further with Advanced Warfighter, which still remained true to its legacy; easy to get killed, required planning, the need to throw a smoke just to safely cross the street! Now we have an ignorant Future Soldier, which have nothing of above mentioned as solidified core mechanic. All tactical parts are just an occasional inputs to spark nostalgia, while in between you still have CoD. And even with firefights you can’t feel a weapon! I don’t know why recent incarnations of Ubisoft top franchises are action-driven with disrespect to the legacy. In summary, if you remove Ghost Recon from the title and don’t raise your hopes too much, Future Soldier can be entertaining for a few hours.
Crysis such a beautiful and open game. Although I didn't like the end with the aliens. Just got to ridiculous for me. Crysis 2 is really a step back in my opinion. Of course you can still enjoy that game and the nanosuit functions are now better balanced but it lost that free approach aspect and the story had to suffer a lot too through that "evolution process" in my opinion. I don't think it will be any better with Crysis 3. After all it's only about these "aliens"... I thought playing with/against real human beings was really fun.
