Played the game this weekend for free. I won't be buying. This game is as Ubisoft as it gets. About two minutes of story in an initial cutscene then that's it, straight into your open world checklist!\

Combat seems fine, weapons are nice and punchy and satisfying when you kill someone, but that's the most fun I had with the game. Granted I only played for a few hours but from what I understand the whole game is just the same few missions over and over again.

Graphics are...ok. This game is so poorly optimized I can't get a stable framerate. Animations are pretty sub par, comparing against The Division from the 2016 (a year prior to this game's release which I picked up last month and am loving) is almost crazy, that game is so polished and all the animations are silky smooth.

Speaking of bad animations, holy moly the driving in this game. The car never goes where you want it to go, and driving a bike is even worse. I'm currently playing through The Witcher 3 at the moment, and comparing the smooth animation of riding horseback to what seems like 4 seperate frames while riding on a bike is almost insulting.\

From what I understand, the Gold Edition gives you two expansions, one based on driving which is currently sitting at a mostly negative on Steam because...driving and then a second one which is more story focused. HOWEVER, they are seperate to your main game, so you're not missing out on anything on your main character by not getting it, so I'd pass. Oh yeah, there's a 4v4 PVP mode with the season pass too but trust me, having played lots of Ubisoft multiplayer sections they're dead on PC after a month.

Heat for the price, and I guess I'd recommend it for anyone wanting some mindless openworld slightly stealthy/action based co-op stuff (the most fun I actually had with this was messing around with my mate in co-op just in disbelieve at some of the AI/physics in the game). For me with a huge backlog, there's no way I'm adding spending 30+ hours completing ?s on a map, not again Ubisoft.

if you do want an open world checklist Ubisoft romp, I'd heartily recommend The Division, much more stuff to do in that game with the loot system being much more rewarding that this game's level up system. Level up! Increase your revive speed by 8%!!

I thought the worst part of The Witcher 3 was the horseback riding. So, it must be pretty bad in Ghost recon.

One thing that Wildlands definitely has over The Division - no bullet sponges - when you shoot enemies in Wildlands they die quickly. In The Division you can empty entire clips into an enemies head and they just don't drop.

In Wildlands a pistol shot to the head will kill most in one shot. Sniper round to the head - insta kill / to the chest kills most in 1, if not they die on the 2nd. In The Division I could empty a 90 round LMG mag into an Elite unit and be lucky to strip one of maybe 5 or 6 bars of health.

I did enjoy The Division - got to the end game and maxxed all my gear and mods on Xbox One, and the issue became less noticeable once you could over-level your gear. But playing some of the DLC like Survival where it effectively resets you to the start just highlights how horribly balanced that side of the game is. The difficulty in The Division also meant quite a few missions heavily favoured having someone else to fight alongside, making some missions much more challenging for those playing solo if that's how you want to play it - was my preference going in to the game, but actually found coop to be a lot of fun and simple to drop in/out of.

I'd not played Wildlands before this weekend - doing the trial on PC, though my PC is showing it's age so I can't comment too much on the graphics. I do enjoy the freedom it gives in how you go about tackling a mission, though even in the first territory could see a lot of similarity in the missions. Driving up steep hillsides near the start - yeah the driving side is "special"

I played a bit further, found a sniper rifle and good magnification scope - liking that. Also found helicopters with guns which made assaulting outposts much easier until they bring their own air support

So far only played the Wildlands trial solo, but clear from the design the 3 "Ghosts" that follow you round could swap out for real players. Mixed results with them - in some cases very useful to have to takedown other targets simultaneously. In others they just sat around the base of a building I was in and let two enemies up the stairs to kill me while I was too focused on sniping from the roof!
Found that if you're playing with randoms, others often tend to want to do their own objectives and the team ends up all over the map. Either that or when doing a mission there is very little team work and people go in solo "Rambo style." Much better if you can play with the same regular online friends.
I've found it's easier to complete missions on my own rather than with randoms.
It gets repetitive very quickly, got bored after completing around half the main mission and most side missions that increase your perks etc.

My experience exactly. This game is not worth your time at all!
Witcher 3 is godly good, I played it maxes out at 4K. I was getting about constant 100fps on my 100hz monitor! However, wildlands only gets me 60-80fps! I really thought running two 1080 Ti in SLi could get the job done!
My two pence. I'm actually enjoying this with a group of friends. Not sure if I'd like it with random or solo.
I’ve had this game for about 6 months on pc and I’ve racked up about 6 hours of gameplay. It just gets boring so quickly, doing the same thing over and over again. Shame really as it could have been great.
