Recently Ubisoft released the open beta for “Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands”. The game covers a special operations unit apprehending a vast cartel by taking down underboss by underboss alongside supporting a rebellion that looks to overthrow both the cartel and corrupt government. The beta had lasted a week starting on Feb. 20 and lasting to the 27. The week had quickly passed by for many people in anticipation for the expansive game’s release on March 7.

Trailers and information started being released about four months ago but didn’t draw that much attention. Many people had seen it as another unnecessary, boring continuation of the “Tom Clancy” series. Ever since the unique innovative styles of “Splinter Cell” it’s seemed that much of the stealth based gameplay has been experimented on easily died off games like the original series of “Ghost Recon”.

However, this is not the case with “Wildlands”. The game features an expansive breadth of the personal customization, an extensive arsenal, a rolling and interactive open world, uniquely innovative stealth and combat mechanics and an original storyline. On top of everything, the game allows for a four player online co-op that will entertain for hours. “Wildlands” takes the best of the “Just Cause”, “Far Cry”, the customization of “The Division” and unique take of its own when it comes to combat mechanics and story.

However, every game has its shortcomings. For one example, the combat situations can sometimes be a tad delayed with some iffy AI moments, which can be expected from games like these. Second, the game holds a multi-layered approach to missions that can sometimes be anticlimactic to the actual objective. Even more so, the driving and piloting mechanics are poor. Of course, the game’s unique approach is something that compensates for this and the one thing that needs to be considered is that the game is still in the open beta. Ubisoft had a survey and complaint line that allowed those who played a way to voice concerns for a better release of the game.

“Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands” will be released on March 7, there is still a chance to preorder for anyone who is interested. Other than that there is a documentary called “Wildlands” that covers the true stories that inspired the game and the journey to understand the complex ways behind the South American cartel.
