Ghost Recon Future Soldier Beta Impressions

Ghost Recon Future Soldier offers a variety of play styles and customization options in order to help prepare for battle. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though. First, it is critical to understand the structure of the game. 8vs8 teams are split into two factions, and on those teams, they are split into two separate fire teams Alpha and Bravo. Each fire team is composed of four individual players and this creates two squads that can separately act together for the greater good of the faction. Once you realize that this boosts efficiency within your team, you begin to plan together before you ever even step foot on the virtual battlefield. Preparation and tactical awareness are all crucial components in Future Soldier.

I immediately downloaded it and started playing. In Blue Toad Murder Files: The Mystery of Little Riddle you play as a detective investigating a string of mysterious crimes that take place in the village. It’s a beautiful game with challenging puzzles, a well written story, and a wonderful sense of charm.
