It seems to me that Ubisoft is reinventing Tom Clancy games to the highest quality while we are reaching to the end of this generation of consoles. Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Rainbow Six: Patriots.
Let me get rid of downsides first because there are so many upsides for this game. The graphics of the game don't hold a candle what we come to expect even from Ubisoft(especially during cut scenes). Same goes with the story. However when it comes to the game itself its a force to be reckoned with.
Ghost recon is all about tactics and how you'd like to approach the situations. It's not a futuristic game but it seems the ghosts take advantage of futuristic tech like optical camouflage and are able to do 4 coordinated sync shots. Yes they are as cool as it sounds. Thanks to cinematic camera and motion captured animations I didn't mind the substandard graphics one bit. My favourite moment is when the ghosts make diamond formation to protect the VIP. It's an exhilarating and exciting ride all the way through. It has a lot of content to go through as well: single-player with challenges, co-op. multi-player and guerilla mode( horde mode).
If this is the sign of new breadth of Tom Clancy games to come, boy it will worth the wait. Judging by how awesome Splinter Cell: Blacklist looks you can expect what might Ubisoft has to show for Rainbow Six: Patriots as well. We have exciting years of gaming yet to come
