I haven't been following this game at all, and I think I was expecting something along the lines of the old GR games.  I definitely wasn't expecting Far Ghost Cry Recon.

I get that the co-op stuff will elevate it for some people, but I won't really be dipping my toe into that water, and the SP is definitely just Ubisoft: The Game with not even a lot of repackaging.  The second I heard the wacky radio guy start talking about all the drugs he's taking while not taking drugs while riding down a mountain in a jeep, the deja vu was just a little too strong.

Now, that said, I actually like Ubisoft: The Game.  And I really don't mind the idea of taking down drug czar's as part of a team (although the cross tat on the head boss's face makes him look like a level 1 mini-boss who comes bursting through a door with a chaingun the second you think you've cleared the level).

However, I have enough U:TGs that remain unfinished, so I'm waiting for reviews on this one.  I suspect I'll be weak and get it, though.

And, so far, there's one game that requires a memory chip.

There is a very big difference between something that is specifically designed for advancing games more than 2 years after the fact, vs shipping a crippled system that can't even support all of the games out of the gate.

Oh, and the games that required that expansion pack actually shipped with one in the only way that you could purchase those games.  So even if they bought one and brought it home on Christmas, they had everything necessary to play them.

Drifter and Owain can attest to how bad I am.

Oh, and it crashed and rebooted my console.

For me, the worst part of the driving is just the camera.  It swings around unlike a racing game would and kind of makes me sick.  I don't remember that from the previous test so I wonder if something has changed?  Or maybe I just didn't pay enough attention then.

I'm going to upgrade my opinion of driving. I'm playing on the PC with a controller and I'm finding it to be not too bad once you have some practice time. Also it seems to depend on the vehicle. I swiped a small sedan from a civilian Roll Eyes and it seemed to drive better. The driving seems unchanged since the closed beta. I guess I'm not as bothered by the camera.

Also, I thought that this was supposed to be a new area in this beta?  I was finally able to get in after getting a repeated error earlier, and it's the exact same area and exact same mission.  Sure glad I had to re-download that 25GB.  disgust

There is a new area, but I'm thinking you have to unlock access to it. Someone correct me if I'm mistaken. It's to the southwest of the original province.

I'm not going to play through this stuff again, as I know I'll need to do it in the beginning of the game as well and just like The Crew if I do it in multiple betas I'll be so burned out on the early stuff I don't want to play the real game.

That's an interesting point. I didn't go very far in the closed beta but I've put in some serious time now and I don't know that I want to replay all of it either.

By the way, Unidad bases are bad ass icon_eek. And their eight billion reinforcements that show up.

Does no one remember the N64 expansion packs?  It's not like they haven't done this sort of thing before.

That was actually a very different thing.  First, it only came out a couple years after the console had already been on the market in order to give it more RAM for new games.

Secondly, you could still play any games up until it launched and the vast majority afterwards without it.  Only 3 games ever required it.

This is annoying. First my internet goes down for an hour, no doubt for maintenance for the torrential rains we had yesterday. I sat down to read and because I'm 63, I fell asleep Roll Eyes. So after my short nap I wake up to play some more GRW, but now it's undergoing maintenance icon_confused. There was a screen that said to check ghostrecon.com/betaportal for status, but that just re-directs to their standard Open Beta info page. I finally just went to the forums and found this sub-forum that has maintenance info.

Info says:
