Ghost recon coming to Wii! ....and.....PSP!

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Ghost recon coming to Wii! ....and.....PSP!

Yet another 'on rails' game is destined to failure and abysmal sales.   Why even bother to make the game at all?

Plus Wii owners have shown to be far more discriminating than this is given them credit for.

Honestly, I have no clue why Ubisoft thinks this is a good idea.

Then again, they did give Wii an honest to goodness real PoP game, which recieved better reviews than the HD versions, only to have it sell like sh--.   So they have reason to think it not worthwhile to spend a lot on Wii games.

No, if you have control over when you move, that makes it the opposite of guided.

Aslo, the PSP version has a much lower polygon count. You can see it in the screenshots. Now the textures on this game don't look spectacular, but if that means they didn't spend as much money on this game, I hope it means they give a slightly lower price to match.

Ah yes. The timing of when the train leaps forward down the tracks. This changes everything.

Ubisoft, you've done it again, you mad geniuses.


How is saying "this isn't guided" means "this will therefore be awesome"? I was just correcting your conclusion, not defending the gameplay.


A train is 'guided' by tracks, even though it follows them at whatever pace it likes. My conclusion didn't need any correction.


No, you still don't get the difference. Extraction, from all accounts, basically held you hand as it showed you the game. This lets you take the game at your own pace, so even if it's not much better, the way it works cannot be just like Extraction but more, which is what you claimed.



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

Plus, just for the hell of it: Kelly Brook at the 2008 BAFTAs

Anybody knows, who are the developers?, I heard that Next Level Games (Punch-Out!, Mario Strikers) are the ones in charge of the Wii version. Any confirmation?

Your comments suggest that Ubisoft did not bring this upon themselves. Go back and look at the games that they developed for the Wii prior to this game. You will see that this company is one of the biggest shovelware developers for the Wii. They themselves turnished their name and this is why Wii owners stay away from thier products. They should have thought about protecting thier brand  but they did not. Instead they went for the quick bucks with cash ins and are now reaping what they sowed.

Very true, they started somewhat strong, and then throw everything out the window. I still have problems buying some of the very few good/decent games they chose to publish (No More Heroes), because I know that the money will go to pay for a great 360 and PS3 that the Wii gamers will never see, and more shovelware for the DS and Wii.

Far be it from me to defend Ubisoft.   They have been very inconsistant on Wii with some really good stuff - Just Dance, PoP, Rabbids Go Home, some pretty good - Red Steel 1,2, RRR 1-3, Shaun White 1,2, My Fitness, Your Shape and a lot of complete crap. 

But to some degree everyone is guilty of that, Activision most hienously, although they also give Wii CoD,  EA, SE (My Pony), Sega and even Nintendo themselves (Donkey Kong Barrel Blast, Pikachu Pokepark)  So I don't think the Ubi brand mattered that much in the end. 



 

Actually, I'm kinda interested in this. I like rail shooters.

Wii fans need to stop complaining and get a HD console. You guys keep hoping for great core games on the Wii, while the HD consoles deliver all the time.

I just can't help but say "eww..." I'm sorry to anybody excited about this, but that is instantly what triggered in my head when I watched the video.
