    With astounding graphics (especially for the all-important and terrifyingly frequent explosions), a sweeping symphonic soundtrack, a surprisingly deep story and a smooth multiplayer experience, GRAW 2 proves that the PS3 can perform just as well as the 360 any day of the week.
  2. Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 is actually GRAW 1: Part 2. Although well made, military shooters could use some evolution. [Sept 2007]
  3. GRAW 2 is unquestionably a huge success. A short campaign aside, it does everything GRAW fans would want from a sequel and once again confirms Ubisoft as one of the leading next-gen publishers.
  4. The visuals are stellar, the sound is strong, the campaign is engaging and the online play will be a welcome breath of fresh air, especially for online hungry PS3 owners.
  5. This is a worthwhile sequel that not only looks amazing but, thanks to the PlayStation 3’s innovative controls, it also feels better than the Xbox 360 version. If you’re a fan of the series or are looking for an exhilarating tactical shooter for the PS3, this is the game you really need to buy right away.
  6. Nonetheless, value proposition questions aside, it’s hard to ignore that this is one the best-looking and most fun games on the PlayStation 3.
  7. GRAW2 for the PS3 is another re-made winner from Ubisoft.
  8. 90
    Thankfully, there are a ton of multiplayer options to keep your itchy finger on the trigger.
  9. A tremendous game. The visuals are a little muddier, the SIXAXIS controls are for the most part negligible, and the online lobby system isn’t as sophisticated as the Xbox 360 version, but those are all minor issues in the big picture.

    Ghost Recon as always been an outsider for the more popular licences that are Call Of Duty or Battlefield, targeting the most hardcore gamersGhost Recon as always been an outsider for the more popular licences that are Call Of Duty or Battlefield, targeting the most hardcore gamers that seeks realism over Rambo's games (personally i like both styles). Advanced warfighter 2 is to Ghost Recon what Modern Warfare 1 is to Call of Duty an almost perfect tactical shooter that will serves as reference for all the future Ghost Recon. The graphics were great (at the time), a compelling story, and everything players were wishing for a tactical shooter (from team management to the way your character moves).
    And it is a bit funny that as Call of Duty 4, the only cons are the difficulty (too easy even in the hardest mode) and a too short campaign (5-6 hours).

    I'm not sure what it is about tom clancy games but i cant seem to enjoy them. i managed to sit through a few stages of ghost recon, it I'm not sure what it is about tom clancy games but i cant seem to enjoy them. i managed to sit through a few stages of ghost recon, it takes a while to ignore the un-godly mess of a HUD on the screen and the over-advanced controls for a 3rd person shooter. it makes up for it in challenging gameplay (what tom clancy games are easy, right?). comparing it to something like army of two, which is basically the same mechanics just much less complicated is why i dont fancy it. but by now its fairly obvious that when you buy a tom clancy game, expect to be lost in a wasteland of advanced commands and extreme combat gameplay.

    for some reason i am never able to get into tom clancy games not sure why i just cant. that being said just looking at this as a normal game ifor some reason i am never able to get into tom clancy games not sure why i just cant. that being said just looking at this as a normal game i did not enjoy it at all and am glad i got it for free because if i paid for it that would have been a waste of money. the graphics are pretty good but the controls are very clunky and confusing and what is the point of a silencer if all the ennemies are allerted to your presence after every shot not exactly ghost recon now is it. stay away from this unless you are a tom clancy freak Full Review »
