Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Shadow Wars - 3DS
A Little Messy.
I'm kind of a big fan of strategy games, so I thought I'd give this game a try. When I first popped the cartridge in and started playing, I felt like I was forced to do a lot of reading. I wish that the Ghosts would actually talk. The menus are fine and the controls are easy to work with for the most part. The graphics are a little shabby. They don't look much better than some of the old DS games. The soundtrack is okay, but the sound effects aren't so great. The style of gameplay is fun for strategy fans, but it seems to get somewhat repetitive after ten or fifteen hours of gameplay, but if you enjoy the gameplay, then you'll be playing for a while. It has a pretty lengthy campaign mode. But anyways, if you're a strategy fan like me and you have a 3DS, you might just want to stick with Fire Emblem Awakening.
Pretty Good Game
I really liked this game. This game is good for the people who like games where you command your own troops to kill other troops. Overall, this is a fun game when i cant play other games like this on the computer.
Not what I expected, yet better then I expected
A lot of the young gamers out there might be disappointed with this one and I would understand if they are. I at first was disappointed because with the first glance at the box art, I thought that it was going to be a top down 3rd person shooter, like Killzone: Liberation for the PSP. But I didn't let the fact that it is a turn based strategy game discourage me, I tried it out anyway and found it to be like XCOM (Some of you newer gamers might want to look that one up, the older gamers that were playing PC games in the 90's would know what I'm talking about). Now I'm glad I gave it a chance, because I found it to be very entertaining.
To break it down, you play as a team, not a person. Pick a soldier and move them to a position to intercept, defend, or simply advance, and continue until all of your soldiers have taken their turn, and then the opposing team will take their turn and do the same. Turn after turn until either side has completed their objectives. AND IT GETS ADDICTIVE. You will find yourself unable to put this one down once you get the hang of it.
Now don't get me wrong, I am dying for a good 1st or 3rd person shooter on the 3ds, and am hoping that a COD or Battlefield is coming soon. At this point, I would even settle for E.X. Soldiers to be released in the US. But in the mean time, if you are looking to feed your soldiers need, this is a good one to check out.
Not Your Average Ghost Recon
While it bears the same name as the popular shooter series, this game shares almost nothing else with the other games. The gameplay in it is akin to the likes of other turn based strategy games, like Advance Wars and Fire Emblem, where you command a group of people around a battlefield, taking out foes in the process. I personally was pleasantly surprised by this fact. My only gripe with this game is it's graphics, It's obvious that this game was originally in development for the DS, then ported to the 3DS to cash in on the launch of the console. So don't get this expecting an shooter, you've been warned
Not what i expected out of a ghost recon
At first, I thought it would be an fps.Then i realized that you had to COMMAND THE GUYS TO MOVE TO A CERTAIN SPOT.You don't get to do the SHOOTING.The graphics were horrid.This is an embarresment to Ubisoft.
when i first got this game i was happy and i started to play it and it was won of the best games i have reached. I played threw the campain and i it was fun un like some ds games. I todaly recomend this game for any body that wants a long game.
At first I really didn't like this game. I got it for Christmas 2011, and didn't try it again until last Sunday. It is better than I thought. The only thing I thought was completely stupid was how great they make the graphics. On the second mission it has great graphics when the clip thingy shows you landing the parachute. Overall it's pretty fun, I'm already halfway finished. I would recomend this to anybody who likes strategy and waiting to shoot. If you wanna know what last Sunday is look at the date this review was written. I know I'm halfway cause it says 50%.
This is one of the worst games ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The gameplay is terrible. Yes the 3d is nice, but not worth a buy. It is an overview game, you have turns that you have to wait to shoot. Not a very appealing game. Was bored the first 10 minutes. Makes no sense whatsoever. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The first tom clancy game i liked.
This game was surprisingly good normally im not into tom clancy games but this one was very different from the others. Shadow wars has the turn based strategy style gameplay which is fun. The game did have a few problems though the end was just extremely prolonged by the bad guy getting away at the end of almost every mission untill the last one of course. But either way i would recommend this game to anyone who has a 3ds.
this is a good game, but some levels r long, and i hate it when u almost win, and then 1 of your guys die, and u have to start again.
