  1. A brilliant introduction to the GRAW series, this is intelligent, exhilarating portable gaming at its best. While it lasts.
  2. In the end, while not a perfect incarnation of the Ghost Recon series, GRAW2 still manages to be one of the strongest FPSs on the PSP and is well worth your time.
  3. The scaled-down version of the Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter console games is a fun little shooter in its own right.
  4. It is far from perfect, but if gamers need some tactical action away from their living rooms, GRAW 2 definitely satisfies.

    It's more visually appealing than anyone could expect, while the varied missions and weapons kept me on my toes throughout the short but satisfying campaign.
  6. The Ghost Recon series makes a solid debut on the PlayStation Portable with this action-filled shooter, but competitive multiplayer is missing.

    No teammates, no cover system: GRAW 2 PSP couldn't feel further from its console brothers if it tried. Stick to SOCOM. [Sept 2007, p.103]

    The level of tension over the story is tuned way down thanks to your regeneration ability and the high level of stupidity that the AI demonstrates. Multiplayer, if you can call it that, is basic and unimpressive.
  9. The PSP's limitations - controls and AI - keep this from being a true knuckle-biting tactical shooter. In tense standoffs your opponents will always make it easier for you by sticking their heads out first. Although it's lacking deep planning or strategy, the game does work for a quick, fun and portable shooter that does its best to utilize the PSP's shooter potential.
  10. Sadly, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 for the PSP is an interesting attempt to take the series to the portable medium but, thanks to a number of weak spots, the game lacks most of the elements that make the franchise such a joy to play.

    Well, now, this is disappointing. I wasn't expecting a full-fledged GRAW experience on PSP, to be sure, but Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 comes off feeling like a slightly more high-tech knockoff of SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo...only without teammates, online play, a reliable lock-on system, solid level design, or online play.

    Occasionally average, but it's mostly dull and problematic. [Issue#157, p.90]

    An excellent port. Some draw distance issues and overuse of bloom effects, but a solid game for the PSP.

    First thing I have never played the console version of GRAW. The PSP experience is my first, and based on the PSP game I will love to First thing I have never played the console version of GRAW. The PSP experience is my first, and based on the PSP game I will love to purchase the console counterpart. With the lack of the back against wall system I can understand where some may feel as though this version is watered down. However it's still a good game. My issues with most if not ALL PSP game reviews. The reviewers treat the game as a console game yet blame the handheld system for it's short comings, which i believe is counter productive. There are DS games out there that are so simple they might as well give them to you for free yet people pay for them and give them great praise. In short this is a good game it's not the same as the console versions because its not on a console. I like it alot and the only thing missing is online play, you're given co-op for the missions but thats about it. You still have drone control, and can call air strikes. Full Review »

    Its ok, i didnt realize when i bought this game that it was only single player or ad hoc... the graphics are amazing for the PSP but it Its ok, i didnt realize when i bought this game that it was only single player or ad hoc... the graphics are amazing for the PSP but it really lacks replay ability by not including Infastructure play like all of the other GRAW 2 games. I wouldnt recommend buying this. Full Review »
