WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Your four-man Ghost Recon squad is placed on the front lines of an unknown international war. As they progress across a variety of terrains including the Arctic and Africa, the Ghosts begin to realize that there is more going on behind the scenes than they thought possible.

WHY YOU SHOULD CARE: This latest installment in the Ghost Recon series sees you handle some of the most advanced tech yet imagined, including the highly touted “optical camouflage” which renders the user virtually invisible to foes unless they are wearing thermo-goggles. With a mixing and matching of weaponry and a high variety of scenarios placed before you, this could raise the bar once again for the tactical shooter.

WHAT RAY THINKS: I simply could not get enough of the A.T.L.A.S. augmented reality system that feeds the player information on the battlefield like never before. It allows you to work with a rare sense of precision and timing that will have those wannabe tacticians out there jumping for joy. Include with your plethora of futuristic weapons and devices the fact you can modify them to your personal style with the Gunsmith system and the future can’t get here soon enough.
