  • Summary: Take command of the Ghosts through a series of missions that range from demolitions, to search and rescue, to all-out firefights for survival. 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.
  7. 40
    Sure, this game might be more accessible now, if you define "accessible" as "easily mastered by the severely brain-damaged."
