  1. The new larger levels with non-linear gameplay put a lot of the decisions in the control of you, the squad leader, and the tweaked AI and intuitive command system makes the single player game almost as much fun as multiplayer.
  2. The graphics and sound are some of the best on Xbox.
  3. It's the best realistic shooter on Xbox Live and it's only real rival might be the forthcoming "Operation Flashpoint Elite," which may steal some of it's thunder.
  4. This 'expansion' manages to improve on the already excellent Ghost Recon 2, with extra mission and updated visuals, all at a new low price. Absolute bargain!
  5. Whether you play Summit Strike for the single player campaign, the multiplayer action, or both, you'll thoroughly enjoy the game.
  6. Multiplayer maps feel thoroughly playtested, with more game types than you can shake a stick of C4 at. [Nov 2005, p.122]
  7. Summit Strike, a glorified expansion pack that is bursting at the seams with action packed content within a $29.99 retail package is exactly what the gaming gods have ordered...A fantastic piece of software.
  8. Comes close to outshining the main game in certain aspects and should be considered a 'Must Buy' for loyal followers of the franchise.
  9. All of the battlefields are enormous and loaded with cover.

    If you've never experienced Ghost Recon before, this is a perfect place to jump into the action. Summit Strike is better than most games that are twice its price, and it should appease most gamers until "Ghost Recon 3" hits the Xbox 360 later this year.

    A great game, although it becomes way too difficult in the later levels and in the co-op missions.

    Was this needed: no. Is this appreciated: absolutely. It's good to know that the XBox users aren't being forgotten in the race to the 360.
