Among Ubisoft’s more recognisable properties are their Tom Clancy branded series. Each of them canvasses a different aspect of war while also presenting a more authentic experience than what is offered by most other games. Ghost Recon has typically focused on squad-based warfare taking place on large, open battlefields while most of the story and plot is carried by political motivations. In concert with this, each game is set in the near future from its release, allowing for minor advancements over modern technology to facilitate imaginative gameplay. This is one third person shooter that has always sat upon the line between accuracy and accessibility, meaning that it has never really achieved the heights of popularity that it is, perhaps, deserving of. While the latest entry, Future Soldier, isn’t necessarily looking to change this, it is shaping up to be the best Ghost Recon game to date, and arguably the most unique mainstream military shooter to hit the market this year.
