This was a very underappreciated launch game for the 3DS. If you like TBS games you will find a solid 30+ hour campaign here not counting the extra missions.

Ubisoft announced several iOS and iPad titles based on its popular franchises today, including a port for one of my favorite games of 2011, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars, originally released for the 3DS when that system launched (it was the best launch title, in my opinion).

If you haven't heard all the praise around the game, it's the latest turn-based strategy title headed by Julian Gollop, co-creator of the seminal X-Com PC games. Shadow Wars plays very similar to X-Com, though modernized and brought into the Ghost Recon setting, with a corny G.I. Joe-esque plot.

The iOS port will be "relatively unchanged" according to Pocket Gamer, though naturallyit won't have the Nintendo handheld's stereoscopic 3D effects that actually worked quite well --they made the talking head cutscenes pop, and turned the battlefields into living boardgames.

Great game. Nice to see it will be available to more people. :)

That's awesome. It's a really good game that I got at Classics recommendation.

lol at the general "It'll be the same except with less stuff!" they have to go with. Surely they can cram in Facebook support and an item shop to make it right at home with other iOS goodies.
