Ghost Recon Wildlands - Review thread

#10
I was expecting maybe 75. This is quite a surprise...maybe I cancelled my pre-order too hastily. Probably not though, it's a Ubisoft game, it'll be 19.99 in 4 months or less.

Some minutes ago it had a 88 score on Metacritic. It just dropped to 84 right now.

I'm very glad that it seems to be better than expected. Played both betas, liked them both, and this is a Day 1 purchase since I'm playing it coop with a friend of mine. I pre-ordered it some time ago so I'm pretty happy overall.

Not sure what people were expecting from this game, but it's very much a Ubi game. I enjoyed the beta a ton and will pick it up 50% off in a couple months. I just love these big open world Ubi games. Great for trophy hunting.

Nice, very excited to play this, I enjoyed the beta a lot.
I'll favor Nier first, but I'll get it as soon as I'm done with that, I think.

Those games have nothing to do with Wildlands besides the name.
This games have nothing to do with each other, beside the name, either.

I was going to come in and predict a Metacritic 77, but this seems to be scoring higher than I'd expected. I'd guess that a lot of the harsher publications like Edge, Gamecentral and Polygon will drop 6s or 7s though.

I played it and enjoyed it a lot, both as SP and Co-Op, a little surprised by some of the 9 but def worth 8-8.5.

It can be a bit repetitive from time to time, however that is solved by the fact that you as a player can approach any mission in pretty much any way you want.
Want to ignore all enemies and go straight for the target stealthy, fine, want to go in guns blazing with a chopper, do it. As a Co-op game it is incredibly fun!

It's still good so far. The twinfinate review lowered it with the 70. I think 80 is it average for sure. With PVP being added later I can see it as a minus on the over all score as well.

Definitely higher than I would have guessed after my time with the beta but hey, if you've got a full team that's enthusiastic maybe it's a good time. I just found the controls waaaay off.

As others have said, those review scores are surprisingly high. I really enjoyed the Xbox One open beta and kept trying to load it even when it had ended - but the game's technical issues and lack of smooth CQC were constant annoyances.

I think I found the game's market when I hopped in with an online acquaintance and two of his friends. Two of his friends who were clearly so drunk, that I was amazed they were able stay upright, let alone play. Their attempt to take out a convoy was rather...confused...but they were having great fun.

Beta was a lot of fun in co-op, so i'm not really surprised that the game got good reviews.

People that were not expecting these kind of scores must've expected some GTA like thing, but that isn't what this game is all about.

Also, it is not meant to be played alone - it's best played with buddies.

Sigh.... I'm still sad I don't have the time or money to get it right now and these reviews aren't helping. I'll likely take the plunge in a few months as I found out one of my friends wants to play it as well.

Get fukt haters

=^)
lol really?

IMO reviews these days are worthless... almost every big AAA game no matter how shit it is gets a pretty high score... sure everyone like different things etc but the Beta threads showed pretty clearly that the game isnt really well received by the general audience..

Have any sort of examples of bad games instead of this low quality gif as a "funny" reply?
Have you ever played some of Ubisofts games they released this gen so far?
This is my personal list:

Far Cry 4 & Primal (Primal basicly a FC4 reskin)
AC Unity
The Division
The Crew
For Honor
and now Wildlands.

I really hope they dont fuck up the South Park game.

GAF is not the 'general' audience. This place can be an echo chamber at times which makes things seem a lot more disliked than they actually are.

So will we be able to VPN unlock later today?

Taking GAF as a indicator for how good Ubisoft games are sure is a good idea


If they'd release Zelda or Horizon GAF would shit all over them
