  1. If I can only think of one weak part of the online game, it's that it's only built for 4 on 4. Other than that, this is a great game to have, and a must for any PS2 online gamer.
  2. Every choice you make during play makes a significant difference to how the mission plays out, whether it's which weapons to use or which sandbank to take cover behind, and the only real problem is that the game seems to lack a certain spark of inspiration.

    It's not perfect, and if you don't have the ability to play online, it's a little brief, but all in all, it's a very competent game. [Mar 2004, p.99]

    Compared to the tight, challenging "Rainbow Six 3," which is also available on the PS2, there’s really nothing Jungle Storm can offer that you haven’t played before. At this point, the Ghost Recon series is definitely the weakest link in the Clancy chain.
  5. The game play has been streamlined for less fussy PS2 players. Plus there’s a single-player mode, where AI teammates respond to 160 voice commands. And the online levels—with up to 16 players barking through headsets simultaneously—is enough to make you postpone your pee break for hours.
  6. Those who are Ghost Recon fanatics will enjoy this, but those who want to take a look at the series might be better off picking up the original.

    The heavy use of sniping scopes provides an exciting sense of realism, as do the look, feel of recoil, and reload animations of the guns. [Mar 2004, p.32]

    But the landscapes have opened up tremendously, the controls have been tightened, and the graphics have improved and the game play is classic.

    Sure, the single-player campaign can be a letdown. Your money's well-spent, however, once you log on and play with other people. [Mar 2004, p.63]
  10. Some may find it a little sub-par in presentation, but it still is a very entertaining outing for the Ghosts.
  11. At the end of the day, Jungle Storm doesn't do much to stand out in a crowded genre. [Mar 2004, p.106]

    You'll have to look to multiplayer to get the greatest enjoyment from Jungle Storm.

The AI and teammates are **** dumb and can't really do as you command to. Ah, the command... The in-voice thing is really complex and makes it hard to control the already-difficult command controls. A mediocre game at best. Full Review »
