The tutorial was good and served its purpose. I achieved pretty good scores on all the tests. After taking out a tank using smoke grenades, stealth and planting a explosive charge blowing it up your reunited with your team. Just like Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter you can select between 3 squadmates to command.Your given a Gunner (who takes damage and deals out damage), Rifleman (who is skilled at using long range assault rifles), Medic (he revives fallen squad members).
Cross-Com is a new feature that wasn’t in the last game. By hitting R2 (Playstation 3 DS3) you can open up cross-com. Cross-com lets you see as well give commands through the eyes of your squadmates. Pretty cool huh? Say you hit R2 to bring up cross-com. You are then transported over to a squadmate. Say you want the squad to take cover you would just hit the up on the d-pad. Unfortunately half my allotted time is over at this point. Well, at least i was able to play around with a new feature that was pretty nice in cross-com.
Next up multiplayer. There were quite a bit of gaming options to choose from like Online Game, LAN Game, Local Play etc. There are clan rooms and leaderboards, ranked matches, quick matches. You can even make custom matches and private matches. I decided to keep it simple and jump into a quick match which was custom designed by the host. You can pick which class you want as well your loadout guns etc.
If you didn’t know, this is a third person tactical shooter in the mold of say SOCOM but not as good. I understand its a four year old game. The positive was that their are groups of people on PSN still playing this regularly. I was able to find a match fast and many matches were available to join. The problem is its extremely meh and pedantic. Its just boring to play.
The match i was in was called team elimination with 6 on 6. The map was a desert village setting. the graphics atmosphere and shooting were just bad. the connection was good and the game’s multiplayer ran good. But that didn’t matter cause the gameplay itself wasn’t fun. At least the music was good. I finished the match with 5 kills and 9 deaths last on my team. I didn’t attempt to try to play this game’s multiplayer after that.
I can say i enjoyed the single player more than the multiplyer regarding Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2. Its an older game with people still playing its multiplayer on PSN (which is a good thing). I went into this expecting the multiplayer to outshine the single player campaign which it didn’t. To put this in perspective i can see this being a decent videogame four years ago. Thanks for reading. Have a great day.
