Now, a little back history here ...
As best as I understand it, Ubisoft launched the Tom Clancy Ghost Recon brand back in 2001, and it boasts a series of video games in and around the fictional military universe created by the author himself. From what I learned from the `making of' featurette on the disc, Ghost Recon crosses into several entertainment platforms - games, films, and books - and capitalizes specifically on the characters and situations created by Mr. Clancy in delivering high suspense military adventures, all set against a backdrop of international intrigue. These soldiers are part-combat-specialists, part-special-ops-soldiers, as well as part-spies, and they're equipped with only the best state-of-the-art equipment that the military has to offer.
As for Alpha's story?
Operatives within the U.S. intelligence community have finally closed in on Chevchenko, a villain involved with all measures of international badness.Read more ›
Here's what's included:
1) A 20 minute "Alpha" movie: I have sampled a number of these game tie-in movies/DVDs. Without a doubt, the "Alpha" film is among the best in technical presentation. The plotting of this piece, which stands as a prequel to the new game, has the Ghost team tracking down their arch-nemesis Chevchenko. As a weapons deal is taking place at an abandoned outpost, all types of mayhem breaks loose which begins an exquisitely choreographed battle sequence. Although dynamic, none of the characters has been developed (hey, it's only 20 minutes) so it may lack dramatic impact but it makes up for it in visual flair! This live action footage is feature film quality, the effects are good, and I absolutely loved this brief bit of movie making. As I said, had it been a game supplement--I'd have given it the highest marks imaginable.Read more ›
