Pro The environment is true to the game's setting
Ghost Recon Wildlands is set in Bolivia, and the game certainly brings that feeling alive. It's one of the most varied places on earth, and each area feels wildly different from the next; it ranges from lush, green forests, to barren deserts, to both urban and rural cities. This game takes the distinct feel, architecture, and culture of Bolivia and turns it into a vivid tapestry that will serve to pull you even deeper into it.
Pro Customization is all-around incredible
In Ghost Recon Wildlands, the customization is absolutely great. That's not limited to character looks, but it also includes an extensive customization system for weapons and clothes.
Not only are there several options for character creation for everything you can think of, but you can also do them freely in-game, meaning you can change what your character looks like on the fly, at any point you want.
Weapons and gear are also able to be modified extensively. When you select a weapon to customize, it will expand, letting you change out nearly every important piece of the gun: triggers, sights, scopes, grips, stocks, barrels, whether or not you want an attachment, etc. You can also choose to color both weapons and gear differently and put different designs on them if you desire. It really lets you play exactly the way you want to, which is always more satisfying.
Pro The game is relatively life-like
In Ghost Recon Wildlands, if you get shot, you are legitimately hurt, bordering on death. This means that taking action can be risky, so you've got to plan your attacks accordingly. It adds another level of difficulty in the game, but with that added difficulty comes more satisfaction from completing missions.
Pro Truly an open world game
Ghost Recon Wildlands lets you do anything you want, any time you want. You can rush right toward the final boss if you decide to, you can complete missions by blowing people up with drones from a safe distance, or by storming the gates. Do the missions you want to, leave others to rot; the entirety of the game is up to you.
The landscape is vast, and if you can see it you can probably get to it. Through exploration, you'll experience all of the gorgeous environments the game has to offer. There's also lot of rewards for exploring, such as new weapons and upgrades, which certainly makes the game more enjoyable.
Pro Fast-paced 3rd person action
Ghost Recon Wildlands is a 3rd person shooter. It's pretty fast and furious, and there's rarely a dull moment. Whether you're whipping around on a dirt bike toward your next mission, or storming a fort with your team, you're constantly in motion. Even though you can slow down a bit should you choose to, the pacing of the game makes it a ton of fun.
