Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint Reviews Summary

Summary: Ghost Recon Breakpoint doesn't manage to retain the goodwill earned by Wildlands. That was an enjoyable reimagining of the series, but this is just more of the same. Where it does iterate, it's unwelcome to, like unnecessary gear scores and looter shooter elements. This live-service game may be repaired over time, but it'll take a while.

Repetitive

Fails to push the series forward.

Buggy

All sorts of issues ensured a messy launch.

Bloated

Feature-creep breaks the game.

Another live service game launched by Ubisoft with decent success. Although not as polished as The Division 2 and Destiny, Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a worthy competitor in a very crowded part of the videogames market.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint is an inferior experience on Google Stadia, largely thanks to a barely-existent online community.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint has many problems. The loot system is boring, the story isn´t that good and you don´t feel lost behind enemy lines. Anyway the gameplay is good, new mechanics like the ability to disguise and the need to tape your wounds are great. You can play it together with friends and explore the large open world.

Enough parts of Ghost Recon Breakpoint are enjoyable enough to give the game a modest recommendation.

If you're trying to sell me on the idea that Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is some kind of tense, elevated tactical action experience instead of an elaborate and unpolished loot chase, then I know someone interested in giving you a hat with a higher gear score.

The Ghost Recon series is now among the many franchises that provide just that: what started with Ghost Recon Wildlands has continued in Breakpoint, an open-world tactical shooter that feels great when the bullets start flying, but slowly loses its identity the moment you're caught in this endless gameplay circuit of looting gear to “improve” your character.

Breakpoint lacks any real innovation and quickly becomes a grind fest for gear to improve your Gear Score. The game’s world is beautifully designed and connected by a transport network, but even the game’s gorgeous visuals struggle to hide the real issues with Breakpoint.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint is such a letdown, especially after the enjoyable Wildlands. It is hard to understand why Ubisoft made such controversial design decisions regarding this new game but it is without a doubt one of the biggest disappointments of this year.

It seems like Breakpoint saw the Assassin’s Creeds, the Far Cry’s, and The Divisions and decided it wanted to incorporate that into its own game. The issue is that throwing everything and the kitchen sink into the game isn’t going to make it great.
