  1. Makes a nice package, and is a good ride for fans of the series. It's probably a little rough on newbies though.
  2. Despite a diverse range of well-designed environments, there’s a dizzying sameness to the missions. [Jan 2002, p.73]

    In short, "Ghost Recon" is where gamers should be spending their time and money.
  4. The game looks and feels out-dated.
  5. Black Thorn’s multiplayer additions will be its main attraction. The rest is fine, if unexciting. [Feb 2002, p.86]
  6. It's a solid but unremarkable addition to the aging tactical shooter.
  7. 68
    One-shot kills make it hard to appreciate differences among the nuances of firing rate, penetration value, and stopping power.
  8. A retread suitable only for hardcore Tom Clancy completists.
  9. When taken in isolation, Black Thorn is a competent, if somewhat uninspiring, add-on. When taken in context, it's overpriced, old-fashioned, and has been released with exquisitely bad timing.

    This game is fun but gets old very fast. The only good thing is the the multiplayer at ubi.

    It's fine for what it is, but not nearly as good as Rogue Spear but it adds on some new guns and stuff but that's it.

    It falls short of expectations. Its set up is out dated and needs variation in order to keep up with the competition and counter partners.
