Ubisoft's Yann Suquet has told GamerZines that the publisher "hopes to interest" Call of Duty players with Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, suggesting that the game's 'wow' moments and pacing have both been inspired by Activision's shooter giant.
And another highly respected franchise down.
If you couldn't already tell with how stupid the game looked during E3 last year... It's too bad, because the last GR games were awesome.
Yep, unfortunately trying to be Call of Duty results in failure 99% of the time..
Imitating cod would NOT MAKE YOU AS SUCCESSFUL! Ironically enough, what made cod popular is the innovation with cod4 which they even couldnt top off and just rehash the formula. Innovation!!! Not copying cod!
;_; why god whyyyyy? Its the WoW effect... by 2017 i bet there will b only CoD-like franchises. Well i might just be gettin out of FPS's anyways...
How many is that now in my eyes that makes about 4, R3 kz3 socom4 and this
Ubisoft hopes to transform the once very tactical and respected Ghost Recon series into Ghost Recon: Modern Warfare Next Be nice to get some of that classic GR tactical gameplay in a new title...........Oh well!
What game developer isn't these days. I still see CoD as a fad. Next gen something else will pop up and people will flock to that. People are fickle. Remember Pogs, tamigotchis and all that. That's honestly how I see CoD. Just to add I really liked 1, 2, and 4 but it's going a bit overboard now. Perhaps the CoD style fps is a fad but the genre itself most definately isn't. It's just most developers copy the CoD template at the moment. But look at Bioshock Infinite or even The Darkness 2. There are original ways to use the genre that don't involve soldiers and middle eastern warzones.
I don't think of COD as much of a fad as I do the whole fps genre. When COD 4 came out I spent countless hours playing it. I also spent many hours on KZ2 and COD: WaW. Now, every shooter seems like the same thing and not just the COD franchise. I've been pretty much done with online shooters for a while now, just focusing on great single player games. That's just me though, ymmv.
Totally agree, why can't they strive to be different instead of copying the yawn fest that is Cod.
AHHH...Look away Ubisoft. Look away.
I've always loved Ghost Recon over COD just a true military game.
This is sad and pathetic , but then again ubisoft have always want to be another "activision" oh,well ubisoft is shit anyway so no big lose here.
If ghost recon involves a learning curve it won't get Cod players jump ship, we all know COD takes no skill to play anyone can be a juggernaut wit aim assist...
And this is why I won't buy it. Ibis oft has become as bad as activision but worse. They lose a their fans because they take away what made them unique. Fools I tell u
Nothing good can come from copying COD
I wont pretend that this comment doesn't upset me - it certainly does - but I wont say it's a deal breaker either. The game looks pretty great to me, and the 4 player coop campaign yells day-one! Although, to add to the things I'm not impressed about it, there's that invisibility device. Personally, I hate it. It makes me miss the good old days of moving slowly in the jungles and changing the view, every three minutes or so, to first person to look for enimies doing the same.
Oh gawd not more kill streaks :(
if its not fast, there is no one hit knifing and camping like lil wussies, then it wont sell well, cause thats what cod is all about.
