  • Summary: As an evil North Korean army slowly gains power, the new Chinese regime sends in the Ghosts, a multinational force, to safeguard the China-North Korean border. As the leader of this new team of special forces, you can control your squad through voice commands, hand signals, and a new interface. You and your team have access to high-tech weapons and gadgets that help you survive surrounding mortar, gunfire, and air strikes. Now, cripple the North Korean threat, and eliminate their rogue general. Collapse

    The result is a game that's enjoyable at times and nearly unplayable others, largely because of a sometimes poor framerate, or stupidly implemented artificial intelligence squad members.
  2. If you have no other console sitting under your television, you are left with the very worst version, the b-side of the b-side, the version with more P-Diddy-esque muck clouding the surface, the version with more of the good stuff ripped out with nothing to gain for it, and a few months wait to boot.
  3. The graphics are still rough as a badger's arse, the AI remains as remedial as ever and the slimmed down strategic side effectively eliminates the only reason there was to play it in the first place.
  4. Where Ghost Recon 2 suffers a misstep is in its failure to offer useful gameplay information, such as mission-objective reminders and maps. [June 2005, p.97]
  5. Misses the mark thanks to completely linear level design, choppy graphics, and the puzzling absence of multiplayer modes.
  6. I'm really surprised how poorly Ghost Recon 2 for the GameCube turned out. Uninspiring level design, terrible squad AI and a lack of multiplayer support all contribute to a frustrating and ultimately dull gaming experience.
  7. As a game of tactics, it fails completely. As an action game, it doesn't deliver any thrills or sense of style. Ghost Recon 2 simply fails at everything.
