Yes, I’m still playing it! Obviously with Lego Harry Potter being ALL CONSUMING for a while I’ve been playing it less, but I still do a mission or so every couple of days. It’s probably the best way to play it, actually.

I failed my first mission today, due to a poor choice for the level when picking a team of three. I just didn’t have the firepower to take down all the trucks necessary.

I’ve done it now though, and am most of the way through Chapter 6.

I’ve not mentioned this game yet in my diary, but in fact it is my most played 3DS game so far. Which, if anyone can remember how I took to Ghost Recon on the Xbox might surprise you.

Thing is, it’s nothing like that. Or any other Ghost Recon game. It is, in fact, a Ghost Recon painted XCom/Laser Squad/Rebelstar followup – a turn-based strategy game not unlike Advance Wars, or, perhaps more closely, Fire Emblem. With guns. And grenades.

And, like previous great games in the genre, I’ve become a bit hooked. I think it’s the turn-based thing, taunting you with just one more turn. And another. And another. Until I’ve finished a level.

Certainly the best 3DS launch game.
