You can carry dozens of standard and special-issue weapons such as the M16A2, the M4 carbine, and the fearsome and deadly OICW. Bring a friend into the firefight in split-screen multiplayer mode.

  1. What sets Ghost Recon apart from other squad based shooters is its command map.
  2. The gameplay is very nice, but we’re lacking seriously in the visuals department. While the levels are huge, there is this thick fog around most of them.
  3. A thinking person's shooter, and provides some solid, tense gameplay... The single player mode is good, the multiplayer outstanding.
  4. It would have been nice if the game had updated graphics and better squad AI, but as it is, this is a great game nonetheless.

    It's fun. Not mind-blowing, but fun.
  6. A fantastic port - and unquestionably best on Xbox - but it suffers in part thanks to last century's tech and in part because pathetic team killing gits thrive in the current Live community.
  7. A tired old game with very little to say for itself. Please Tom Clancy, we know it made for good source material for your books but leave the Cold War behind. It's over already.

    This game is like electronic crack! I bought Wolfenstein and Midtown Madness 3 and both are gathering dust as I keep coming back to GR. This game is like electronic crack! I bought Wolfenstein and Midtown Madness 3 and both are gathering dust as I keep coming back to GR. Multiplayer is absolutley insane, with prevelant lag being the only reason I'm not giving it a 10. The solo game? I couldn't say beacuse the multiplayer has posessed my soul. Expand

This game is the reason to own an Xbox and play online. Socom for PS2 is good, but this game blows it away! Intense gameplay and the different mission types is more than enough to get you hooked and playing for hours and days. There are a few minor glitches that could be fixed but this should keep people more than satisfied until happy happy Halo 2 is released. Expand

Red Storm Entertainment, ils étaient déjà coutumiers du fait sur les Rainbow Six, ceci expliquant cela.

    Mais ce n'est pas tout, car nous sommes loin du compte... La disposition des commandes étonne et détonne quelque peu mais soit... l'interface de commandement est pour sa part un ratage complet, un échec total en matière d'ergonomie la plus élémentaire, en plus d'être dégueulasse à l'utilisation, laide, illisible, bâclée et carrément absconse.

    On a donc un système d'ordres inutilisable et une IA des coéquipiers à la ramasse qui se fait dézinguer par le premier moujik venu. C'est du propre. Demi-tour droite, direction la poubelle.
