Introduction, setup, requirements

Ubisoft's latest entry in the long running Ghost Recon franchise is known as Future Soldier, and features – go figure – futuristic soldiers. It also sports multiplayer, plus a campaign and wave-based mode, both of which you can go at solo or with others.

The PC features have been teased for awhile now; in this review I'll be seeing whether or not they're worth your while, and also how the game performs, plus examining any unfortunate console inheritance.
