  • Summary: The Xbox version of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon 2 is a sequel to the PS2 version (which is set in 2007), and it features its own storyline, level design, and cinematic sequences. Once again, you must lead a team of Special Forces operatives (the "ghosts") on a variety of dangerous missions. Equip your team with advanced weapons and gadgets, and then fight alongside them in East Asia. The game also supports online multiplayer matches, in both competitive and cooperative modes. Collapse

  1. They do have some patchwork to do as far as menu interface and Lobby environment go, but as a friend remarked to me recently, "we don't buy games for their interface, we buy them for their gameplay", and gameplay is where Ubisoft's talents have shined brightest.
  2. This is the game that fans of simulated modern combat and Clancy fiction have been waiting for.

    While the changes that have been made are pretty major, they were all implemented to enhance the experience, and it's definitely become a much more enjoyable game because of them.
  4. If it weren't for the somewhat unpolished enemy AI and placement, Ghost Recon 2 could have been a very realistic and engaging shooter. As it is, it feels a little out-of-kilter and more like a standard (but very good looking) shooter with some pacing issues.
  5. I just wish the gameplay had evolved more. It feels pretty familiar to me, but those who haven't played every tactical shooter in hte last couple years will find a fresh and exciting experience. [Jan 2005, p.130]
  6. An enjoyable tactical FPS. Although an add-on, it offers more content than many full-priced games do. [Sept. 05]
  7. If you run and gun like an idiot, expect your men to follow you straight into an early grave...A thiking man's firefight.
