Why Ghost Recon's Gunsmith Is Kinect's Coolest Gimmick

OXM UK: "Here's the thing about Ghost Recon: Future Soldier's Gunsmith mode: it's totally unnecessary. But here's the other thing about Ghost Recon: Future Soldier's Gunsmith mode: it makes our palms itch and our toes wriggle."

The story is too old to be commented.

whether it has kinect support or not how often does anyone mod guns. i know i'm the type of person who has a few specific guns and stick to it so this feature is great but only if you plan on consistently modding your guns. Also your going to have to start the game and navigate the menus with the controller so is it really worth it to put it down just for this? either way it's such a tiny feature it hardly deserves to be "news".

If you are getting/earning upgrades then you would mod your gun quite a few times.

Providing the game itself is good, where's the harm?

Extremely excited for this feature. Can't wait to play around with it and show it off to family and friends.

From the video, it looks pretty slick, but is that all? It barely worth putting Kinect on the box. Hopefully, there's more.

What "more" do you expect? It's a Kinect Hybrid game. It's not Kinect only. It's just a little added "something" for those who have a Kinect unit. It's not like the price of the game is more expensive for the 360 than the PS3.

It's just an added and optional feature. What else would you use the Kinect for if not just what Ubisoft is using it for? What else would you use it for that felt "appropriate" and another great feature?

There is also squad voice commands for the SP game.

That looked really cool.
Can't wait to get my hands on it.

I'm sorry, I don't get it. Like the title says, it's a gimmick. I'd rather use my controller to change all the parts.

The one good thing I've seen so far is the use of voice control. That could come in handy during actual play. But the movements for gun customization, IMO, will get old rather quickly and people will probably just go back to using their controllers.
