Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Pros:

Physics. Graphics.

Cons:

No Quicksaves. Checkpoints are too infrequent. Friendly AI path finding is questionable. Most of the unique Ghost Recon 1 features and gameplay omitted. If you (the squad leader) die in single or multiplayer, GAME OVER and start over! All maps take place in urban Mexico City. None of the outdoor expansive terrains that made the original Ghost Recon so popular.

Comments:

If you are a die hard Ghost Recon fan be warned. This game has omitted most of the features that made Ghost Recon "Game of the Year." No longer can you jump into and control each squad member, no longer can you issue disposition to your commands (such as "recon", "suppress", "assault", "advance at all costs") and no longer are you in control of up to 3 squads (Alpha, Bravo, and Charlie). Nope, now its just you and 3 other ghosts.

The AI path finding in this game is far from Magellan. Your squad mates barely negotiate the complex cityscape, announcing "arrived" when in fact they haven't and are rather two blocks behind you guarding the back of a fence. As a matter of fact, you are constantly micro-managing your squad because they do not automatically follow you -- unless you issue the mislabeled "follow" command which causes them to merely regroup on your current position. There they'll stay until you manage them again.

The omission of quicksaves or some form of spawn capability is absolutely ludicrous. As a matter of fact, there are no manual game saves at all. Not even from the game menu. Just a sparse checkpoint system. One location had me fighting over 30 enemies, 3 tanks, and 4 armored vehicles in an ambushed town center before I was awarded my next checkpoint.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stop porting console only games to PC. May 13, 2006
By Gary

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Yup, its a console game alright. It's somewhat pretty and explosions are very cool but thats where it ends. I cant beleive I wasted 50 bucks on this.

- Frustrating

- No manual saves

- AI is horrid. AI sees you before you even turn the corner.

- Squad mates are dumb as stumps. Tell them to follow and they run past you into a crossfire.....

- No jumping or walking over short obsticals.

- Squad commands dumbed down and limited for the twitchers.

Do I need go on?

This game would be ok for an arcade setting. But Ghost Recon it is not. Shame on you Ubi

2.0 out of 5 stars Not much fun at all May 28, 2006
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
If you've played the previous Ghost Recon game/packs - forget it; this is nothing like it.

If you haven't played the previous Ghost Recon game/packs - then here you play Mitchell, commander of a futuristic crack four-man Ghost Recon team who are sent into various hot-spots to sort out the bad guys the good ole American way - with advanced recon-technology and big guns.

Sounds like fun? It should be - on starting up the graphics are great, the music (if a bit cheesy) creates atmosphere, the intro movie looks good, the deployment into the first (training) mission is slick. Then you're on the ground and into the game - and the frustration begins.

Once you have to do something other than walk fwds/bkwds/left/right - you realise how inadequate the manual is in explaining all the features at your disposal (probably) are. For example, the `Follow' command - nothing in the manual, nada. I can have a good guess at it, but what exactly does it do? And Drone? What? Where? Also there are no stats on the available weapons. Not living in a gun culture, I'd like to know something about the in-game guns to make a decision on which to equip for each mission - but maybe this isn't an issue for our cousins across the pond?

Next, the AI. Your team mates are sometimes incredibly dumb and will happily walk into a hail of bullets no matter have many time you tell them to `Move' or `Stop'. In fact, the commands you issue them seem `advisory' rather than `orders' as sometimes they just seem to have a mind of their own. The enemy AI however, is lethal; they seem to be able to pick you off from a country mile with one or two shots - and then its game over.

1.0 out of 5 stars Time to reinstall the original... May 24, 2006
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
The original Ghost Recon for PC is hands down my favorite squad based 3D shooter. I loved the tactical aspects and the real life feel of being in the battlefield. From the tactical map allowing commands and control of all your men, this game really gave you the feel of being a battlefield commander.

With each new version of Ghost Recon it has become apparent that Ubisoft is no longer concerned with supporting the PC environment or it's users which is a real shame. While I enjoy some console games, primarily sports, I've never enjoyed 3D shooters on console. I like many of my friends prefer the mouse & keyboard as well as the beautifully rendered graphics.

While the 360 and HDTV eliminates one of these, I don't think it's enough to port a console game directly over to the PC.

Most important, I believe that the game play has been dumbed down to the run in, kill, get killed mentality. Gone are the tactical & squad based maneuvering that really defined the original game. That was something original that set this and the SWAT series apart from other 3D shooters.

Might as well go out and buy Quake or Unreal because here is yet another clone...

Game of the Year no more!
