Ghost Recon Wildlands Video Review

Sometimes ambition can get the best of you and such is the case with Ubisoft’s, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands. Over the course of its development, we managed to get a number of hands-on moments and each time we walked away thinking that there was an amazing experience on the way for gamers. That’s why we’re disappointed to say that it didn’t quite live up to our hopeful expectations. While the idea of Ghost Recon Wildlands seemed like a good one we just encountered too many issues that kept it from being as great as we’d imagined.

In Ghost Recon Wildlands you are taken to Bolivia to take down an infamous drug cartel. There is a huge open world to explore and while it looks good when properly loaded we experienced a ton of texture pops to take away from it. Other issues we came across were shoddy AI and poor stealth options. The world overall was big but seemed barren as traveling from mission to mission became more of a chore than something we enjoyed. Funny enough, though, despite the issues.

Obviously, you’ve got our video review up there to check out but our man, Tyler Treese summed up his experience with Ghost Recon Wildlands saying, “Ghost Recon Wildlands is a game that is hurt by its own ambition. Its blend of genres results in a game that tries to do everything, yet excels at nothing. The sheer scope of the world makes it impossible to be filled with interesting details, and Ubisoft manages to make the entire country of Bolivia feel boring. Nothing fits together as well as it should, and it all results in one very disappointing package.”

Hopefully, your experience with Wildlands is better than ours because despite our opinion on it there are people out there enjoying it. We’d love to hear your comments below!
