  • Summary: Cuba, 2009: Castro is dead, and the first free Cuban elections in decades are thrown into turmoil by a drug-funded warlord. The Ghosts, an elite team of U.S. Army Green Berets, are sent to Cuba as part of a UN peacekeeping force to destroy the rebel forces and their mercenary leaders and secure the elections for a free Cuba.

    I enjoyed it more than the original, and for $19.99 it's a total steal for an expansion.
  2. This game is about the best game I’ve ever played for the PC.
  3. Has enough wonderful extra and multiplayer maps to add more fuel to Ghost Recon’s highly entertaining fire.
  4. The only thing you won't like is the deadly accuracy and preternatural instincts of the enemy. [Feb 2003, p.83]
  5. The difficulty level will undoubtedly spur a few people away. It's not crazily impossible or unreasonable but it's not as easy as some of the missions presented earlier.
  6. There are no huge new strides in gameplay, but the story-driven campaign is top-notch -- albeit murderously hard. [Holiday 2002, p.84]
  7. I like the new modes because each one puts the player on the defensive at some point, and I love being the centre of attention in a multiplayer game and facing overwhelming odds. Yeah, I'm a masochist, sue me.

    I love this game. I got it because it looked really cool and let me tell you, I didn't regret it at all. Also, I thought that because it is rated M, it would have lots of gore and guts and everything, but surprisingly, it wasn't bad at all. The only thing they show is a little blood on the ground afterwards and it lasts only like 5, maybe 10 secs. I would definately of given this game a teen rating, because I don't see why it's M, maybe its because of the violence, but even that wasn't horrible. The graphics are awesome and the game overall is just incredible and I would recommend it to everyone!!!!! Expand
