It is really strange to see Ubisoft releasing a free to play establishment of the popular Ghost Recon after so long. I was really amazed by their decision not to advertise the game and let just their uPlay users know about the launch.
The main objective of the game is to capture all the points in a certain amount of time. If the time runs out the winner is going to be the squad that has the most points captured. There are some things in the game that make the camping useless which is a really big plus for the game an advantage over other online TPSs.
The community is of a really good quality I mean that if you aren’t so good they won`t make fun of you and they will try to help you if you aren`t thinking you are the best.
The Graphics aren`t bad but you are limited to presets which is ok if you are not the person that likes to tweak and tune every aspect of the graphics quality, but else you are limited by chorusing the preset.
The weapon choice is really low and the differences between one and another are really big. The sound of the shots is relay realistic but the lack of ammo choice is really tearing down the experience.
As armor you don`t has much to choose as the head gear isn`t helping you at all and the body gear is as low as the weapon choice.
One really neat thing in this game is the use of some “devices” that give you and your squad some advantages for a short period of time.
- ASSAULT: The class with the most HP. By activating your Blitz skill you can infiltrate in your enemy`s base and take all the resistance down before they realize, or use your Heat ability and kill all of the enemies on a short range by hitting them with microwaves.
- RECON: The class with the longest range. It`s Oracle lets him and his squad see the outlines of the enemy. The Recon can deploy an almost invisible cloak that lets him kill his enemies.
- SPECIALIST: The supporter. This class is mostly used as support. It can deploy a shield that is bulletproof, however once your enemy enters your shielded area he can shoot you without any problem which makes this ability almost useless. The other ability is good at disabling enemy`s devices which is a really good ability.
Tom Clancy`s Ghost Recon Online is a really demanding game if you keep in mind that it is a beta free to play. There are some downsides but overall is a really good game that deserves the gold award for F2P games.
Weapon and armor choice: 7/10
