Review: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier photo
Review: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
by Maurice Tan

It's an interesting world we live in, where games with titles such as Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 and the near-future Call of Duty: Black Ops II end up looking more "out there" when it comes to future warfare than something titled Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.

While Future Soldier takes place in the future, it's one that rings much closer to home than any futuristic military shooter we've seen to date. It may come as a surprise to those who lost interest in the Ghost Recon franchise after GRAW 2, that this latest title has ended up as one of the finest military shooters in recent years.

Preview: Ghost Recon Commander shoots you in the Facebook
by Ryan Perez

Woah, a Facebook game! I don't think I've played one of these for a while. In fact, the last Facebook game I played was over a year ago, coincidentally another one linked to Ubisoft -- something about castles that my girlfriend urged me to play because it looked "cute." Thankfully, there's nothing remotely adorable about Ghost Recon Commander, and it's actually being developed with non-Facebook gamers like me in mind ... or "hardcore gamers," as Loot Drop calls them.

Sure, there's a lot more to being hardcore than enjoying violence, but it's at least a start. This is especially true when you look at the overwhelming amount of fluffy s**t in Facebook games that's meant to appeal to middle-aged housewives.

Win a copy of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier right meow

[Update: Contest closed! Winner is MeowShark!]

Destructoid is sponsored in part this week by spam musubi (Dale is in Hawaii with his wife celebrating his anniversary, congratulations!) and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.  If I may paraphrase the description on the box ... this is a game where ... you kill bad guys ... in exotic places ... with cool guns. I think that about sums it up. Luckily, I'm not writing the review.

You can win a copy right now by posting photos or animated gifs of Jean Claude Van Damme in the comments below, one photo per comment, and you may enter as many times as you like.  International readers will get the cash value of the game instead of having us deal with customs/shipping.  

The game is out on May 22, and a winner will be selected at random on Thursday.  Good luck!
