Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2
Ubisoft's award-winning shooter that was founded on the PC returns with Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, designed specifically for the PC gamer by GRIN. Building on the foundation of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, the sequel is a near-future warfare masterpiece. Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 for the PC screams tactics, and you'll need to bring your best to bear if you are going to get the Ghosts past their latest challenge.
It's 2014, and the soldier of the future returns to encounter a new and more imminent threat along the recently completed wall on the U.S./Mexico border. The Ghosts are more powerful with an upgraded Integrated Warfighter System (IWS), but will have only 72 hours to assess the threat and stop the rebels from reaching U.S. soil. With a border that's 1,900 miles long and an enemy that doesn't play by the rules, this is a job for the U.S. military's most elite fighting unit. This is a job for the Ghosts.

Graw2 uses a lot of excellent tactical features that I know a lot soldiers, police officers or just gun enthusiasts would like to see in a game. After playing Counter strike I can appreciate things like being able to lay prone in a grassy area and pick people off. You can crouch and even run while in a crouched position! Which is great for doing (MOUT) Military Operations in Urban Terrain or even bounding to assault an enemy position. This game also lets you utilize cover to its fullest advantage. You can peek right or left to take out enemies while not compromising your cover or concealment, whichever you may have. One of the more controversial aspects of this game is the fact that they're is no jumping what so ever. I personally like this features because it keeps players from utilizing the "bunny hopping" strategy. Nothing frustrates me more than being gunned down by a guy with an M4 Carbine thats jumping all over the place. Try that in real life and see how accurate you are :P But I will admit it can be annoying not being able to jump over some of the minor obstacles in the game.Read more ›
That said, the action is very good. The missions are similar to the original and in the same setting. If you enjoyed the first one, you'll like this one too.
The single player mission is passable; but the AI has near perfect aim. Not at all like what terrorists in Mexico would likely have in a real battle with US SF troops.
In multiplayer mode, most servers prohibit grenade launchers, which makes sense; but the soldier is only allowed one grenade. Worse, there is nothing else really in terms of tools or arms except the rifle, a worthless backup gun (except if you are a sniper you need your handgun sometimes), and a smoke grenade. There is otherwise nothing modern about this game - in fact it is more like WW1 with automatic rifles. No mines, sensors, overhead intelligence, communication.... you can type messages, but no automatic messages like in BF (by pressing the function keys, to say need reinforcement, enemy sighted, etc.). No indirect fire either. There is voice communication - if you pay (as far as I could figure out).
This is a fun game, in part because it is a much more deliberate and paced than the BF games and other FPS. Only a few bullets kill, and there is no health to get. But other than some nicer graphics and a few effects, like cars blowing up if hit by grenades, there really is nothing new about this game compared to GR1 from 1999 or whatever.
It's worth five or ten dollars, but not much more.
The graphics and sound effects are okay.
The voice acting is poor and annoying. "Talk to me, Sir"...you'll hear that a lot from your squad; they should talk less and fire more. And then there is the sexually-seductive sounding way that your teammate tells you: "Way to go, Captain"...after you make a good shot. Yuck. It made me feel creepy. And there is similar weird sounding dialogue coming from your team.
The AI (your team) is poor; interacting with your squad is cumbersome. I found it easiest to tell my entire team to just follow me, but they routinely get stuck somewhere. The enemy AI is okay.
The middle mouse button is reserved for squad commands, so don't reassign that mouse button to another key. The middle mouse button is not listed in the on-screen controls/key mapping; I found it in the game manual. Who reads the manual anymore? It should all be in the options menu...configurable or not.
Want to crouch? Hit C. Hit C again to go prone. Want to stand up? Hit V to go from prone to crouch. Hit V again to stand all the way up. And there is a THIRD key to go from stand to prone and back. Really? Just give me ONE key to stand/crouch/prone.
I didn't find a way to take cover...just need to crouch behind something, but crouch is not much different than standing.
I felt like it was a run-and-gun game...not much strategy needed. Just head toward the goal and kill targets along the way.
I'm playing ...Read more ›
