Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier recently came out on PC (following the game’s release on Xbox 360 and PS3), but you might want to avoid that version of the game if you can. Why? Many gamers are reporting on the game’s official forums and on Steam that the PC version of Future Soldier is plagued with bugs that are putting a serious damper on people’s enjoyment of the game.
Many bugs within the game have been reported, including issues with keyboard and mouse support, graphical issues, crashes, and unstable multiplayer. Ubisoft has already issued two patches for the game, but these have done little to help players; in fact, some are reporting that these patches have actually increased the game’s problems. Ubisoft is asking PC gamers to report any issues they come across and are working to make the game’s multitude of issues go away, but you might want to consider buying Ghost Recon: Future Soldier on Xbox 360 or PS3 if you want to play it.
-Nick’s take: First Skyrim and now Ghost Recon. I’m appalled that games are being released in a broken state like this. It seems that issues really like to crop up in versions of games that aren’t considered as important as others; this would explain why Skyrim on PS3 was a mess and why Future Soldier on PC arrived late with a host of bugs. Developers need to put the same care and effort into every version of the games they develop.
