What's with the weird names 'Advanced Warfighter' and 'Future Soldier'?

What's so weird about them dontgetit.gif ?

The meaning of the word 'Warfighter' is a soldier, it is just the same as calling a medic in the battlefield "Warhealer"?

Neither of them sounds cool 'Advanced Warfighter' and 'Future Soldier'.

Might as well stick to name which has no direct meaning e.g. Tom Clancy's Ghosts

Well, now that you mentioned it, that's sound much better.

Meh the trailer looked cool enough, maybe for a rather interesting movie tbh.
And the sniper shot was cool, although it seemed odd that he shot twice with the .50 Cal at the guy. confused.gif
I honestly haven't been a fan of series since GRAW and all the future soldier stuff started with the series, which was after Summit Strike (I believe).

Also I thought Ubisoft bought the Video Gaming rights to use 'Tom Clancy' as they damn well pleased from him a few years back.
Which may explain why Hawx was made.
Seriously I do wish Ubi would drop some serious money into the next Rainbow 6 game and not pull the old direct copy from competitor thing they did with Vegas 2.
That is the dodgy (at best) running mechanics and the experience bar and system.
But now I'm gone from doubts in a game based on a live-action trailer to being critical of the little old french Canadian company. tounge.gif

First order of business: This game looks like it has some potential. I liked GRAW2, never got into it much though. The skirmishes were fun. The futuristic, sci-fi twist gives it a bit of edge that I find appealing. I would've liked some actual gameplay or something to be shown, though.

Secondly: RomanViking, I'd like to kindly ask you to f*ck off and take it to PM.

Quite the resurrection.

So yeah the multiplayer beta has now been rolled out (better late then never). You can either get it by loading up Splinter Cell Conviction or pre-ordering Future Soldier. The beta was promised months ago, probably the middle of last year sometime, i'll be surprised if many even have SCC after such a long time.

I was going to go on a bit of a rant about me missing out on the beta due to all the delays and getting rid of SC ages ago but i got emailed a code so all is well biggrin.gif .

Anybody been on the beta yet? what do you think of it? mines currently downloading and i won't get on it until tomorrow.

I was never interested in the MP portion of the game, but since i have SCC lying around i might give the beta a shot later.

Utter cack.

1, I can't figure out how they've managed to go backwards in visuals.

2, The hit detection and aiming doesn't feel remotely solid.

I loved the GRAW and R:6 outings but this feels like their redheaded bastard stepbrother who's been locked under the stairs.

I know it's a beta but I really hope this isn't a reflection on the finished product.

Massive let down.

Yeah GRAW and R6 were quality, i spent so many hours online with them. We had so many games together all those years ago, it's scary how the time is flying.

Here's a video of the first mission done in stealth.


Also a multiplayer video.


Hopefully it's just the beta that's making it sh*t and the final product will be flawless. It looks great from watching those two videos, i've got high hopes for this so don't let me down Ubi.

Just realized I have access to the beta. Got an e-mail by Ubi.

I'll download it and tell you what I think.



EDIT: Whoa, this project has an enormous amount of potential. When you get to play the MP, it feels so fresh. The weapon customization goes to the limits. The graphics are great. But what impresses me the most (and what I was worried about when I've heard of this) were the controls. The game plays good. icon14.gif

Hmm, looks like I'll be popping in Splinter Cell tonight to download the beta. Picked it up recently for $20 so me and a friend could play some co-op, but this is a nice bonus on top of that.

I got a key a few nights back from Ubi, and so far I'm enjoying it. I actually enjoy the weapon customization more than the actual game play which is perhaps a little worrying.

As i was expecting. It's one of those games where the multiplayer has some longevity so it shouldn't be much of a problem.

Finally got a couple of rounds in last night after i kept getting the never ending loading screen for the past couple of days. It was alright, seems very fast paced and more of a 'gun and run' style compared to GRAW 1 and 2, also it was quite the grenade fest. I played as the assault class and the starting guns where crap and so it was hard to get kills from a distance, had a good first game and then a sh*tty second game as the map was bigger.

Just got a beta key for this from Raptr. Downloading it now. It's not one I've been anticipating, but I'll give it a go.

Awww yeah! No gun and no head lol.gif I usually spend most MP games running around like a headless chicken, but this takes the biscuit.

How do you get the reward from raptr? I've played assassins creed revelations after I made my raptr account but I didn't get any ranking on it.

I've got no idea. I have ACR, but I haven't even opened the box and had a play yet. I just logged on to Raptr and the code was there waiting for me.

Raptr was where i got my code from, wasn't even expecting it, after trying numerous other ways i gave up. It says being a newbie in a top 10 game or a previous Ghost Recon or Assassin's Creed game, newbie pretty much just means booting the game up.

If you can find your rewards page then it should be there to claim.

Idk it must not have been working for me, but I ended up getting a code from twitter.

I started up the game after taking forever to get a code and wow was I disappointed. How the hell does Ubi even call this a Ghost Recon game? All you do is run around, spray, and lob grenades.

Ubisoft are turning Tom Clancys games into massive piles of run and gun sh*t.

Merged.
Maybe this topic was created, but I didn't find one mercie_blink.gif , anyways..

So I have my brothers copy, picked it up from him yesterday and which I'll go ahead and say, I can't play full version of Multiplayer because his code has already been used but I can only play up to Level 5 and won't be able to rank any further.. I also can't play with friends or create a party.. this is another story.

Anywho, the game, wow.. I'm seriously disappointed. This has to be the worst GR to come out thus far. It has it's "cool" moments, SP and MP, but it's still like holy hell.. this is like NOTHING I've seen on YouTube or in promotions. (Which some if not most games usually are).. but I was really at a loss for words. The graphics seem abit lacking and the gameplay is well, an average shooter. I was expecting a full-on edge of seat game and 3mins into the first mission on Campaign, I took the game out.

Anyone else have any issues with this game, or plays it? I've been playing the MP and I must say, it's challenging, but it's out of whack as well, not at all what I expected. GRAW2 was awesome and then this here may have just ruined Ghost Recon as a franchise.. who knows..

It's def not worth a buy, but a rent, mayyybeee. Ghost Recon was amongst the first MP games I've ever got into on the PC and it was pure ecstasy, but after playing this for acouple hours.. I think they hit a wall. Not sure what the deal is.. It's just horrible and they've obviously CHANGED alot of things. Not sure why, but the graphics have been downgraded, the mechanics are awful.. It's basically a sit behind cover until you shoot someone or get shot.

Not intensity, no replay value, it's just suicidal.gif

I don't know, I love the multiplayer, I've been playing a lot with friends and it's replaced Socom for my tactical shooter. The campaign is long as well and I actually loved every second of it. I played the beta and was dissapointed initially, but I honestly think it's a great game.

I can't play full on multiplayer due to the code was used already, but that just means I stop leveling @ 5 and I can't form parties.. but that doesn't affect my overall judgement of the game.

It's just not what I thought it would be.. I remember when it was first revealed and the amazing single player gameplay trailer they showed.. I was just like O.O and when I played it, I was like cryani.gif . Just seems to me that downgraded alot of it. Textures seem blurry, same as text. Formatting is wack.. I haven't even went past the 2nd mission in Single Player .. which normally on bad games I finish regardless.. that's just how much disgust that I have.

I have my eye on the new Sniper Elite though.. looks fun.

I enjoy playing the game co-op online. I would play more multiplayer, but they need to fix the servers before I go all in... I have beat the game on Elite, it was not that hard, really... Hit me if you want to play online sometimes via XBOX Live - CWB iPhaze...

True, I enjoyed playing it on PC... I believe they released it in third person because of the lack of third person games. I mean, we got Gears of War for all that... I think it's because of the games such as Battlefield 3, Call of Duty's, on and on... There are plenty of FPS war games taking place on today's warfare... They wanted to try something different, and it's alright.
