Ubisoft snipe at COD and Battlefield, "if you want a smart shooter, you play Ghost Recon"

As momentum gathers towards release, Jean-Marc Geffroy, Creative Director on Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, has taken a snipe at franchises such as Call of Duty and Battlefield.

In an interview with SI, Geffroy claimed players come to Ghost Recon if they want a "smart shooter". (PC, PS3, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Xbox 360)

Haha, if he said that during the original ghost recons he'd be right. But not anymore.

You see the problem Is people don't like to do research to see how far we are ahead tech wise then start calling our reality Illusions...Imagine potraying you're idea of a live conversation between people across the sea for for free and with a cooured Image 100+ years ago...you'd get the same reaction telling people their is an invisability suit..but their is and this will be used on you when you've government turns on you

This guy is living in the past. If you want a "smart" shooter go play the original Ghost Recon games.. I'm left confused as to how they can just justify the "tactical" element in these current gen Ghost Recon titles. GRAW was a run and gun arcade fest not a slow methodical planning shooter of it's predecessors and the old Rainbow Six games.

If you want a thinking man's shooter go play Battlefield or Starhawk.

Out of interest, what defines a "man's shooter"?
TekoIie  +   1114d ago
BF3 a thinking mans shoo- HAHAHA!!!!!.... Oh wait your serious : /

Bf3's good but it requires very little intelligence to form a strategy of any kind in that game. Atleast on starhawk we can agree but none of the shooter elements in that game require any need for thinking. Its the construction of your base which requires strategy in Starhawk.

Same genre, different taste.

replace "Smart" with "Buggy as hell", and he'd be right.

ghost recon campain is ok, but in my opinion the mp stinks, this is based on recon 1 and 2, also i dont like the crosshair in ghost recon games, its the same as the one in spintercell conviction.

(bring on the disagrees)

I've grown to hate CoD, but you're right. Dunno why you would get disagrees for stating fact. CoD will sell better than anything else. It doesn't deserve to IMO, but it will regardless.

oh shit LOL no disagrees? i must be dreaming
