GamesRadar: Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Preview

According to US military advisor Jean-Louis DeGay, "The future of the solider is an F-16 on legs." It conjures up weird images of Metal Gear Geckos and constipated Transformers – but it's also the philosophy at the heart of Ubisoft Paris' latest foray into near-future military warfare. Hard to believe, but the gazillion-selling Ghost Recon series has been in hiding for three years now.

"Future Soldier doesn’t look much like GRAW at all – and it sure as hell doesn’t play like it."

Uhmm I guess I will keep reading.

"Future Soldier’s central premise involves getting close enough to see the whites of an enemy’s eyes... before blacking them with a dose of Close Quarters Combat"

Why God what have we done to deserve this!? Is nothing sacred in console gaming? Perhaps I'm getting too uptight about this but I started back in Ghost Recon 2 and never thought I would see something like this in a military simulation series.

I, for one, can't wait for this game.

I absolutely LOVE GRAW and GRAW2.

As was mentioned in this article, they have some TREMENDOUS explosions.

"And if you’re able to remember rounding that corner in the original Advanced Warfighter only to be flattened by the embassy blowing into a billion pieces, you’ll understand how exciting this is."

I actually remember this part. It was so loud and unexpected that I nearly sh*t myself. XD

"One final question: are those legendary helicopter chaingun sections making a comeback? “There will be certain rides,” teases Lacey.""

Those helo chaingun sequences are amazing as well. GRAW 2 has several of them that are completely freakin' epic.

Yeah chaingun helo sections are more fun than they probably should be. The explosions are always excellent!
