Surprised there's not a newer one up yet on the soon-to-be-released Ghost Recon Future Soldier so instead of bringing the original one up from the dead here's one for everyone to comment on.

I noticed my Splinter Cell Conviction game I got for 10 bucks came with the GR:FS beta. Looking forward to giving it a go this weekend.

After playing the beta all I can say is:


The game sucks. A lot.


Really nothing good about it. GRAW 2 was better in every way, especially graphically.

I love the previous version of this game, it ranks behind RB6:LV and Diablo series for my all time favorites, but I have heard nothing good from Beta players and this is disapointing. I am tempted to order from Game Stop for the deluxe upgrade, but until I hear something positive this might be a rental first.

Well after being shafted by all the hype and final result of RE: Racoon City iIwas hoping after all the countless delays this would be a winner and I'd actually end up buying & keeping a game. I didn't even open RE:RC...sent it back still wrapped.

Can you give a bit more insight to all the "sucks" of the game. I and a few other friends were planning on jumping on this for the coop. But after being burned on RE:RC....I'm really hesitant about any pre-orders much less a week after the game comes out.

the maps are smaller that GRAW 2...not sure how I feel about them yet....if the idea of a slower paced call of duty sounds fun, you might like it a lot....if you are a die-hard GRAW nut you might not be happy.

As for graphics...I thought the game looked amazing. Having put near 200 hours into GRAW 2, there is NO WAY you can say this game does not look better.

Also, there are coop modes for this game, along with the fact that the single player campaign can be played 4 player coop. The demo is just the MP part.

I have faith this game is going to be worth it. If the MP part is a let down, the rest of the game should make up for it.

I went over to the offical site and glanced at the forum on that has a topic..."Beta Feedback". I'll spend more time reading and I'm sure more are to come but the negative is outdoing the positive so far. Granted it is "Beta" but while some are complaining about certain quirks in the game several are also mentioning it the idea of the game....that it's not GR. Got a month to figure it out and wait and see.


Update...A friend had a few spare codes for the beta and he gave me one last night. i think a few of us are going to give it a go together tonight. I'm not much interested in actual fighting as I am about controls, movement, interaction, display, etc...I just hope I can get in and try things out without someone just in to rack up some beta stats to brag about.

I loved GRAW2.

Got a Beta code and I'm sort of indifferent on what I've played so far.

Everyone playing like it's Team Deathmatch got really annoying quick.

I wonder if all the people bitching about the game are MW/BF/Halo players, the ones that this series has never appealed to in the first place or if they are GRAW2 fans. GRAW was my favorite series but after playing RB6:LV I really prefer the controls on it and am hoping they use mor RB6 controls vs GRAW controls.

That one was the best....A RS game has been long overdue.

I did read some more feedback at the offical site's forum and it hasn't ben all good. In fact many have stated they're cancelling their pre-order. It sounds most or really disappointed in the "new direction" of the game and it's no longer GR. One even said it's another BF or COD with claustrophobic maps and spray & pray.

This is what I was afraid. I don't like the run & gun of the BF/COD and have always loved the GR/RB6 series. I still play RB6:LV2 and still have a blast (the cover system is the greatest most realistic in any shooter IMO) because I love the tactical aspect and the coordination needed for it. I threw in GRAW2 the other day after playing Vegas 2 and I was really disapointed, Vegas series really set the bar to the ceiling.

Press the Guide Button, Go to Redeem Code, enter the code the same way you would enter XBL Points.

From then it should prompt you to download the Beta.

I know how to redeem codes I just think Ubisoft sent me a code for computer gaming which I don't do.

I have a code that I tried that with but it didn't work. The numbers are set different from the normal Xbox codes it like this:

Sounds like the beta is a disappointment. Guess I'll be playing GRAW 2 on PS3 for longer than I thought. I still can't find a modern game that recaptures the play style. Tried Battlefield, Socom, and numerous others and keep going back to GRAW 2.

Have you played Rainbow 6: Vegas 1 or 2? It is similar, a small 4 man team being more stealthy/enclosed areas vs open terrain with a more battle type feel. I like the controls much better and you still need to strategy like GRAW. The cover/shoot from cover system is awesome, the most realistic cover in any game I have played - surprise soldiers don't just run full speed into the open blasting away.

If it's the wrong one, just email Ubisoft back and see if you can get a 360 code.

Also there are a ton of Video Game forums where folks are just posting their extra codes for all to take.

I tried Rainbow 6 Vegas years ago but didn't try the multiplayer (had an XBox 360 at the time and didn't have gold at the time). I found the single player incredibly difficult and sort of lost interest. Plus, one of the things I like about GR is that usually it takes place in large outdoor environments. Unless I'm mistaken that doesn't seem to be the case with any of the Rainbow Six games.

Saw this over at Gamespot's...Now Playing...showing four playing a full mission in coop mode. Pretty long but gives a good first hand look of actual game play....

My thoughts exactly, I'm interested in picking it up now (wasn't before based on the negative comments about the beta) but not at $60 and knowing it should drop in the not too distant future, I'll hold off.

Toy's R Us has a deal this week on Ghost Recon: Future Soldier in that if you receive $30 off if you buy the game and strategy guide together. I ended up price matching this deal over at Best Buy, who also takes an extra 50% of the price of the strategy guide if you purchase it along with the game. So between all of these deals, I ended up getting the game and strategy guide for about $40.

I've played the first mission of the game and a little bot of the multiplayer so far and it's not too bad. My Xbox Gamertag is Wedge003 if anyone wants to play some co-op campaign.

Well I traded in some games I wasn't playing and I must say this game is an absolute blast!!! I love it! I've only completed 5-6 missons and haven't played multiplayer only co-op but I love the pacing and they made the contols sooooo easy to use.

I have 2 buddies that play COD MW 2 only and picked up this game and say they won't go back.

Well I guess Operation Flashpoint is no more then...but glad this is working out. There are still me and two others that are probably going to get the game but not now. For the next "war" game the new MOH one looks to be a killer.

Cardiff Giant11

Got this today as well. While it's not as revolutionary as GRAW was at the time, it's a solid improvement. The multi player especially flows better. The campaign is kinda annoying with all those "cinematic" camera angles but so far so good. Haven't played too much yet, does the cross com show up at all?

Just finished the single player campaign. I'm surprised at how much I enjoyed it. It was a nice change of pace from the usual run-and-gun military FPS like COD and Battlefield. Definitely worth a rental.

Have some friends who have this and would like to get a forth person for the co-op run. I really don't care to spend $40.00 right now since GOW is coming up and may get Aliens.

If I were to buy a used copy just what will I be missing in terms of the "codes" that comes with the new one?Is it something really good, needed or important or just another skin or two?

K&AJones
02-26-13, 09:27 AM
Ended up getting this used at $20. Just doing the solo campaign on recruit and then two or three of us are starting the co-op either tonight or tomorrow.

Have to say I've ben really surprised how much I've enjoyed the game overall. The game itslef reminds me of TC:Rainbow Six Vegas. A good blend of action, cordination, stealth and suspense. The AI, both friendly and hostle have been pretty good. Not too smart and not too dumb. Action , graphics, sound have all been really surprising. Overall I give the game a 8.7.Haven't done MP but doubt i will with GOW getting close and I just want to finish the co-op campaign.

For those who played would getting the DLC Raven be worhtwhile? Apparently it's mainly a new five misson campaign add-on. Also do you need actually four people to do the Guerrilla Mode? That's something I want to do but wasn't sure how it worked?

Finished the solo campaign last night and to me was worth every penny. Looking back I wish I went ahead and spent the extra $12 for the new game and got the pass or DLC or whatever came with the new copy.

I played recruit thru solo like I said to get a feel of the game before doing the coop part on veteran. Even playing recruit there are plenty of areas that were challenging. And even doing some of the misson challenges (to complet to get better stuff) are no cake walk.

Overall...highly recommended though a little late in the game since it's been out several months. Anyone who is a Rainbox Six fan would love it. A blend of Rainbox Six and COD: Black Ops.

On a side note I have to wonder how our Russian friends thought of the game? With American Spec Ops speaking Russian, going into their homeland defending one Russian side while taking down an evil Russian side.

Finished it last night and although I enjoyed it, I'm glad it was just a rental. Maybe playing it co op would have solved some of the issues because at times my squad was just flat out useless. I died multiple times because they would not heal me and I had to restart to the last checkpoint twice because they wouldn't regroup at a door at the end of a firefight. Playing this really reminded me of how much I want another Rainbow Six game.

K&AJones
03-04-13, 08:28 AM
Speaking of co-op, me and a friend are doing it on Elite. Takes all but one or two shots and you're down and no; the AI will not heal you. But we've learned to use the two AI soldiers a lot in sync shots because they don't miss and can get many places without being detected.

So far it's been a combination of fun and pain and some frustration but I'm really liking the game. The last three matches we've hit 80/100, 100/100 and 90/100. When we get around to Guerrilla Mode you are more than welcome to join.

And speaking of Rainbox Six, there is another in the works that is to come out this year. I've still got RS:Vegas 2 which I started with a friend in co-op but never finished which I would like to get around on.

foxdvd
03-04-13, 08:31 AM
My group enjoyed the game...on elite it was frustrating because one of the 4 of us is not as skilled as the others, and he kept going down, but besides that it was easy.

All of us though miss the coop maps from the last GRAW. They put in another horde type mode, replacing one of the best coop game modes this generation.

08-18-13, 06:36 PM
Finished it (on veteran) earlier today. This game is sweet. The controls are great, the AI is awesome helping u with kills and they always healed me no matter how hectic it got. Love synch shots, actually seeing your AI teammates running around the perimeter looking for the right spot to take the shot is awesome. Also liked a lot Diamond position. It's was nice trying and trying over again till I got it right to complete a section without being frustrated (although the difficulty ramped up in the later levels).

:thumbsup:

Got to the final level last night and was at the end where 2 fleeing HTV's where left. Man was that a bitch. It didn't help that I was trying to beat the Tactical Challenge of under 6minutes to kill. Anyway I tried and tried many times and I was getting kinda frustrated so then I decided to forget about the challenge but it was still hard. Trying to find a good balance of killing enemies and not letting the last HTV escape. I got mad so I decided to do it tomorrow morning (today).

Tried it earlier today loaded it up and was at a check point (which I wasn't getting last night) after killing the first one. So I just ran my ass after the last one without killing many enemies in my way got shot downed and revived and kept running and made it to final scene/checkpoint... On my first try, I was so happy. :lol:
