Review: UNA

Game Review: Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands

When I hear the name “Tom Clancy”, my head turns and my pupils dilate. Honestly, the guy’s books were absolutely legendary, and it’s a shame he’s gone. And when I hear the name “Ubisoft,” I usually ignore it and carry on. Ubisoft’s reputation as a game producer is not exactly …
