Russia has fallen under the control of ultra nationalistic politicians intent on rebuilding the Iron Curtain. This leads to conflict with NATO as Russia attempts to reclaim the breakaway Republic of Georgia and the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. As the war escalates, casualties mount, hostages are taken and the Ghosts are sent in. Expand

  1. The need to command troops might not suit everyone, or the slower, more measured approach to combat. But if you want a unique war game for your console, Ghost Recon is your only choice.
  2. As a result of the somewhat simplistic design (which allows you to enjoy Ghost Recon even if you've not played a lot of tactical shooters) and the valuable multi-player modes, this is one game that may not receive a really high score but still comes highly recommended.
  3. In every respect besides multiplayer, Clancy’s Ghosts eliminate those damn pansy SEALs across the board.
  4. Shoots itself in the foot thanks to a ponderous control system.
  5. They’ve simplified the game enormously and as a result it suffers.
  6. It’s an OK military shooter that just can’t measure up to the likes of “Red Faction II” or “Timesplitters 2” in variety, options and replayability.

    Sure, this game might be more accessible now, if you define "accessible" as "easily mastered by the severely brain-damaged."

    Compared to previous Clancy games like rainbow six and so on, there are much more advancments to this game, more weapon optoins, more comandCompared to previous Clancy games like rainbow six and so on, there are much more advancments to this game, more weapon optoins, more comand options and simply better missions, not like the kind where you have to sneak through an entire level without being seen, "nearly impossible" , This game just like previous Clancy games is a winner, and shouldn't be compared to games that lack patience.

    Comparing the PC version to the PS2 or XBox version is so lame. If those buyers already have it on the PC why would they get the same game Comparing the PC version to the PS2 or XBox version is so lame. If those buyers already have it on the PC why would they get the same game for their console? Think about it idiots. It's a translation. Is it fun if you never played it on the PC. uhh... YEAH! It's a good game. Ponderous controls? Whatever. Just because you have fat fingers doesn't mean a game is hard to control. I had it down in 10 minutes. If you like FPS games on the PS2 then get this game it rocks. Expand

    Comparing this game to other 1st person shooters like Red Faction2 or Timesplitter's 2 is insane. This is a REALISTIC MILITARY 1ps. IfComparing this game to other 1st person shooters like Red Faction2 or Timesplitter's 2 is insane. This is a REALISTIC MILITARY 1ps. If that's what your looking for, search no more. This game is tight. The best feature is the mission co-op mode. Play with a buddy, it rules! The worst thing about it is that the co-op mode will not be unlocked until it's been beaten on single player mode. Don't worry though, you can find cheats on the net to unlock it right away. Expand
