    They also don't realise that console pirating makes up most of the traffic through pirating websites. ;)

    The real reason is that its cheaper and faster so they can churn out more product for less effort and turn a greater profit. But marketing would never say it like that. ;)

    Yep, looks pretty cool Angry. Not used to 3rd person views, but it still looks the goods. Roll on Wednesday.

    Very tech. Not sure why you would loose stealth camo when discharging weapons... But still impressive.

    yep, very glad I've bought this. Lots of fun so far. Though personally I would like to play without the cammo.

    See below link for PC Version Key Features, Minimum hardware requirements and Recommended Configuration.

    Got the PC version, one of the worst ports I've ever seen, in addition to the game itself not being very good. Some missions I can't even get 30fps on the lowest settings it's so poorly optimised, and I have no issue maintaining 60fps on much more graphically intense games like The Witcher 2, BF3 etc on med - high settings.

    In addition to that it doesn't feel at all like the other GR games, really been dumbed down. I had to put it on the hardest difficulty and even then it's not even remotely challenging, especially since you're almost invisible and have x-ray vision. Small linear maps, scripted sequences everywhere, forced combat sections when stealth could have been perfectly viable, terrible AI, incredibly low res low quality pre-rendered cutscenes (the volume of them is also about half that of the rest of the game for some reason).

    Steam version and other PC versions didn't match for a while which resulted in constant disconnects, now the versions are the same but it still suffers from constant connection issues. Multiplayer is really poorly designed, it matches you with people of similar levels but only for your team, which for me resulted in a team of level 1 players getting put in a match against a team of level 30ish players. Guess who won :rolleyes:

    Another case of "we want the CoD audience". Stay away.

    LOL Chief, so true. Too late for me, I bought it as well. Playing with the "Warhound" reminded me of using Godmode in some games. Invincible, too easy, unchallenging and totally boring. You could eat dinner and play this game. I was wondering if Spec Ops The Line, would be better? The demo wasn't toooooo bad.

    Its a fun shooter on the ps3 for me at least. I do enjoy the MP when you get a good squad but when you have a bunch of run and gun players on your team its horrible but that is not the games fault I guess :)

    The gameplay is just your average cover shooter but overall it's a pretty good game. Bug free, runs smooth as silk and has a surprisingly strong and engaging story for a shooter. Don't think I'd pay full price for it though, couldn't see myself playing through it more than twice.

    Looks like, and reminds me of Frontlines: Fuel of War... Enough said on that front.

    But for me, all Ghost Recon titles have gone downhill since the original, which was utterly brilliant. Each time they add in new tech they seem to remove an important element of gameplay.

    There's a reason WWII games are so consistently good and challenging - no "helpers" like heartbeat sensors or x-ray vision, or thermal sensors that see through solid concrete...

    I still can't figure out why we don't have any proper 80's themed theatre based FPS titles. The 80's had such awesome hardware, the Cold War was at its climax and the weapons still had a lot of that "directness" that translates so well into FPS gaming.

    Instead we get remote control helicopters and heartbeat sensors...

    Nah I mean the actual game, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon. It came out a year after Rainbow Six I think. Wasn't quite as "planny" as R6, much better graphics if I recall, and was more of an outdoor stealth-em-up rather than a demo and charge like in R6.

    EDIT: and now he see's the : p hehe
