This review is from: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Shadow Nintendo 3DS Game
Pros: *Lengthy (30+ hours) campaign spanning 35 missions *Good mission variety *6 distinct classes with well balanced strengths and weaknesses *Terrain and elevation effects gameplay greatly *Top notch squad-based tactical game mechanics *Very smooth increase in difficulty as the campaign progresses *Terrific looking 3D adds very realistic depth to the battlefield and is also used well in cut scenes and menus *Unlockable skirmish maps and challenge missions
Cons: *Complete lack of online functionality (there is a "play and pass" multiplayer mode) *Graphics with the 3D off are underwhelming (though the 3D effect makes everything look so much better)
Other Thoughts: This game is erroneously labeled a "shooter" here. Long time fans of previous Ghost Recon games may be surprised to find out that it is not a 3rd person shooter, like previous Ghost Recon titles, but instead a turn-based squad-based strategy game. The game is made by Julian Gollop, the designer of the legendary original X-Com game as well as many other quality turn-based strategy games, and it really shows in the top notch tactical mechanics. The game is easily accessible as it introduces new elements and wrinkles gradually without ever overwhelming you, yet it's plenty challenging especially on the highest difficulty level. The lack of online multiplayer is a bummer and the only reason this isn't getting 5 eggs, however the core elements of the game are all top notch and the game is really fun and has tons of content.
