'Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier'

Publisher: Ubisoft System: Xbox 360/PS3/PC Release: May 22 For many years, local author Tom Clancy has lent his name and characters to video games with a generally high degree of success. However, with first-person military shooters very much en vogue, it's hard not lo look at "Future Soldier" as a thinking man's "Modern Warfare." Still, the Clancy brand's connections to military realism lead to a slick-looking projection of near-future conflicts, with an uptempo emphasis on high-tech weapons and intense firefights.
