Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands Review
The Ghost Recon series has now been over a decade and a half old and the most recent entrant of this series, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is almost five years old now.
Since then, a few games from Tom Clancy have helped in bridging the gap but the phenomenal Ghost Recon series has vegged out. Coming up with the new series- Wildlands, Tom Clancy is hoping for a good come back in the league but it is not very recognizable which we feel is not really as extreme as it may seem to be.
Like most of the Ghost Recon series, Wildlands makes you run through a troublesome war land which has been dominated by a lot of bad guys who need to be thrown out of the land as soon and as thoroughly as possible. Tom Clancy has selected the South American country of Bolivia for all the action this time. The game perfectly blends current affairs in the story and the landscapes and the politics of the region have been made very artistic and it is surprisingly interesting how you will not even recognize the blend of current affairs while you are busy flying helicopters, rescuing rebels, and sniping heavily armed cartel members.
Once you start playing, while complete the first few missions it becomes very evident who the final target is- El Sueño. Every move you make and mission you complete only helps you to get closer to the final stage of taking down El Sueño. There are some side quests as well in the game so you can pause your story missions and complete these quests as well, but then again these quests are also linked to the final stage of taking down El Sueño.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands offers a wide open world with great freedom to move around in the region and battle with the enemies as well as police officers who seem to be corrupted. It also offers complete customization and control to decide how to complete your mission. The thing that makes Ghost Recon: Wildlands stand out from the former games of the series is that the final aim is just focused on fulfilling one objective of taking down El Sueño. The entire clan of the Santa Blanca, El Sueño’s members is filled with small player which need to be taken down in order to make developments and reach the final stage.
There are a few bugs in the game like you can’t ride the llamas but these bugs or performance issues are not something you need to worry about as they don’t come across breaking the game. The game has been built on such a large scale and with so much detailing that these cons can be simply considered as the side effects of making something so huge. Also there a vast difference between Ghost Recon: Wildlands and other games of this series that it could have been a game on its own instead of a series of the Ghost Recon series.
