Why would you? 3rd person is only good for peeking through corners, and the only corner you can find in GR is probablly a cliff.

Honestly man, everyone knows ghost recon is only first person. Why would you have expected any different? It is described as a squad based fps. Geez. You have the internet obviously. Why didn't you read a review or something.

How dare you put GR in the trash!!! Here's an analogy.

S7N is to HALO as DCell is to Ghost Recon!!

I did read a review (from GameSpot) and it said nothing about being first person only.

Why would I expect any differently? Because Rainbow Six ( another Clancy game, also which I'm not crazy about) give you the option of first or third person views.

Good thing I only paid $10 for it. At least I didn't get soaked for the $40 gold edtion.

And what the heck is SN7 anyway?

There is no point in arguing this. Honestly. Just because one review didn't particularly point out it was an fps, where did it ever say it was in third person? Why would you buy something expecting it to be like that if it was NEVER described to be like that. "Oh, I thought SC had online deathmatch because *such and such review* didn't say it DIDN'T have online deathmatch, therefore it should.

Your laziness man, your fault.

No I'm not embarassed that I was proved wrong. I think I was misled in by the GameSpot review. Not the first time it's happened to someone. How many times have you guys seen "the movie of the year" only to have it completely suck? And don't say never because it's happened to everyone.

Let me tell ya something. One of you has said why would you want a 3rd person view? I don't understand why you'd want a first person view only. To me that's just a lazy programmer's way of taking the easy way out. "We'll make this first person, it's easier". Just recycle the Doom or Quake game engines, add a few new charaters and viola'! A "new" game you can charge $49.99 for.

well, so i suppose halo stunk and they took the easy way out? it is probably just as hard to make 3rd person view as 1st person, plus it is even harder to make both

Well, too bad that didn't happen. No, it's not a developer's lazy way out, it's because it was designed to be fps.

So what if a game is designed to be only third person, and doesn't have first? Is that another of the developer's laziness. No.

And led on by gamespot? LoL. Just because they didn't specifically go "CaptainHarlock, this game is NOT IN THIRD PERSON" does not mean you should have ever thought it was. It is your fault. Don't try to blame it on something else. There is nothing anywhere to suggest the game was in third person.

Cornered dogs fight back.

I don't know, I've never played Halo. So I will not comment on it.

should of downloaded the demo /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif . when i first got r6 a long time ago, i was turned off by the absence of the first person weapon. I wanted to return it, but it was a demo /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif . I eventually got used to it was enjoyed the game very much, same thing might happen for GR, who knows /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
