PAUSE: Ghost Recon gets the LEGO treatment, and it actually looks more interesting than the real game.


In honor of yesterday’s release of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, the good folks of Machinima have released a video showing the techno-war simulator reborn with LEGO toys. The addition of LEGOs does for gunplay what Mario Kart did for racing, and the switch to cartoonish cuteness actually seems to enhance a lot of the game’s tactical elements. It’s only a spoof-em-up but it still shows how much of a game’s mechanics can actually be obscured by grim and realistic visuals.
