    It's not the best action game on Wii, but after all it's entertaining for some hours.

    There's a campaign that lasts six hours and an arcade mode, but if the gameplay's no fun, why bother?

    Players wanting an exciting, fast-paced, on-rails light gun shooter on the Wii are far better served by SEGA's Ghost Squad and House of the Dead: Overkill. The developer's failure to fully embrace the arcade approach ensures this game serves no-one, least of all its tired licence.

    This Wii shooter is hardly worthy of its namesake, delivering a predicable and ultimately forgettable shooter hampered by poor controls and uninspired level design. Let's hope Future Soldier has a more promising battle plan.

    To be honest, we weren't really expecting any sort of surprise when booting up Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon. The experience can remain nice when played casually, but only when you are two to enjoy it, and haven't played through all the others railshooters out there. There's probably a safest bet you haven't tried yet, though.

    It's not that the idea of pushing Ghost Recon into on-rails territory to make good use of the Wii's control setup is without merit -- other franchises have gone a similar route with great success. The problem is that it's executed so poorly that it feels like a cheap cash-in on the Ghost Recon name rather than an innovative twist that brings something new and exciting to the series.

    A fun arcade shooter, despite some odd design choices. [Jan 2011, p.91]

    Ubisoft has had a great year with gems like Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, R.U.S.E., No More Heroes 2, and Red Steel 2 to name a few – but the sooner this truly awful game is buried and forgotten the better.

    Ghost Recon's shooting gallery action is shallow and repetitive, but it still manages to provide some entertainment.

    There's no good reason to have this game in your home.

    Really, do yourself a favor and forget this game exists. Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon on the Wii fails to justify anything for the long-running military series with its bad gameplay and bland presentation. It's safe to say this is a ghost of its former self. Wait for Future Soldier.

    Ghost Recon for Wii marks a low point for the series, and should be avoided by Wii owners and Tom Clancy completists alike.

    One of the worst games that we've tried on Nintendo's platform - with a pathetic graphics engine, no internet options and a shameful script, be advised: keep some distance from this one.

    Ghost Recon re-imagined as the most boring Time Crisis clone imaginable, with a mix of genre and franchise that should never have happened.

    The problem with Ghost Recon on Wii lies in its concept: too simple to be part of the original series and too serious and pseudo-realistic to be a real, enjoyable on-rail shooter. An experimental mixture that just doesn't work.

    Mediocre in the grand scheme of things, but if you've already de-zombied your back catalogue you could do worse than enlist in Wii's other Ghost squad.

    It's disappointing, especially given the depth of the other iterations, but this Ghost Recon has its charms. [Holiday 2010, p.89]

    The combination of the lackluster settings and tedious gameplay makes for a disappointing game. Straight up, Ghost Recon is just a pitiful rail shooter, and with the amount of other good rail shooters on Wii, there is no reason to even think about getting this game.
  19. A dumbed down on-rails shooter, albeit a half-decent one. [Christmas 2010, p.82]

    Ghost Recon for Wii is a basic third person shooter, surprisingly on rails. It features a good coop campaign, if you like Tom Clancy's franchise you won't be disappointed.

    Ghost Recon on the Wii feels like a cheap cash-in that takes no advantage of the console's strengths.

    My brother and I just picked this up and we are enjoying the coop game. It's preety sweet to play with someone beside you and much better than when you play single player. There are cool weapons, you get to pick who does what in each level and it's a fun shooter. We have Ghost Squad but this game is way harder and we really have tp work together to get the job done. The story is just ok but there is lots of fun in just trying to complete the level and in the beginning of the game you play this cool drone and take out soooooo many enemies. It's not call of duty for sure, but its a fun game to play with someone. Some of the review people are giving it 3/10 but we think this game is more of a 7/10. Try for youself and see what you tink.
