A slow grind with no point
With great mechanics for survival and dialogue choice, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint looks amazing as you run through well-crafted biomes. Keep on delving further in the game, and you'll find yourself treading murky water.
Exploration with strict limits
Ghost Recon Breakpoint offers many great features but is limited heavily by all its flaws.
The Tom Clancy game series is like bullets flying in from every direction. Sometimes these hit their mark like Splinter Cell Chaos Theory or Rainbow Six Siege. Other times, though, they miss completely. In this case, the bullet that went astray is Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
To start you off, there’s a decent variety of classes for you to choose from. These include Assault, Panther, Field Medic, and Sharp Shooter. You can unlock new ones by spending your hard-earned skill points. There’s also a specific menu option that you can use to manage all of them.
You’ll need to set up camps if you want to survive. In these areas, you can craft selection gear and items quickly. This can be a great way to skip some grinds. These camps also act as both fast travel stations and a way to replenish your exhaustion meter.
If you stand still in an environment and watch it, you’ll notice some impressive visuals. The biomes are well designed and quite pleasant to view. If you’re playing the single-player campaign, though, you’ll be traversing the beautiful scenery on your own. The game has no friendly bots or companions to join you, which makes missions harder and the world a scarier place. The multiplayer mode adds players to your match, but the drop in difficulty can make the game feel underwhelming.
Where can you run this program?
Ghost Recon Breakpoint is available for Windows 7 to 10, and has console versions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Is there a better alternative?
Yes. Far Cry 5 is a first-person shooter that has smoother gameplay, a good story, and comes from a franchise that holds a similar reputation for quality as Tom Clancy’s. Otherwise, check out Rainbow Six Siege as a multiplayer alternative.
The title is slow, tiresome, and generally not worth putting effort into. Ghost Recon Breaking point offers combat, graphics, and mechanics that in the end, feel empty.
Should you download it?
No. If you’re looking for an engaging story and a top-notch title from the Tom Clancy series, you should look elsewhere.
