Engage the deadliest AI enemies yet angry merciless and meticulously designed to take out you and your team.

Amazon.com

Set in the year 2008, Ghost Recon is a Tom Clancy-inspired war game that puts you in command of a Special Forces unit pitted against Russian ultranationalists trying to rebuild the former Soviet Union. Although the story arc is grand in scale (in keeping with Clancy's style), the game doesn't involve you in the war's major battles. You'll actually spend most of your time behind enemy lines--rescuing downed fighter pilots, knocking out enemy patrols, ambushing armor columns.

You control a six-man squad, divided into two teams, and you have the opportunity to handpick your squad members (and their equipment) after each mission briefing. You can switch your point of view to any of the six active soldiers--the soldier you control automatically becomes the leader of his team, while the other team operates according to orders you give via a map interface. Thus, you can move one team into a covering position, leave them with orders to provide cover fire, then lead the other team in to reach your objective. Or, break up your squad and try to achieve two objectives simultaneously.

The level of detail and realism is incredible, right down to the way the soldiers communicate in hushed tones and with gestures. The complexity of the game requires an elaborate controller setup that takes a while to get used to (luckily there are plenty of training missions designed to help you learn the multitude of movement, weapons, and command functions). Once you get the hang of it, you'll find it's worth the time spent in boot camp. --Maile Bohlmann

Pros:

  • Incredible graphics and realism
  • Wide array of tactical options integrates strategy into the action
  • Missions are diverse and challenging

Cons:

  • Controls are complicated, hard to master, and sometimes counterintuitive
  • Dramatic music and "drill sergeant" narration between missions is pretty campy
  • Enemy soldiers sometimes behave too predictably

4.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Video Game: Better than PC Predecessor December 18, 2002
I have just completed the game Ghost Recon for the PS2. This game was an excellent game on PC and I wanted to see if the Conversion to Console did the game justice. It Delivers the program in style and then some. full of special features as if it were a DVD video the game also features the Desert Siege Mission Pack, a multiplayer mode, and tons of extra levels etc.
In fact, the only complaint that I have is that the Character animations tend to get a tad static when in a heavy firefight. the game also features a streamlined control system, very much improved sound, and for the first time I have seen in a Tom Clancy game, High Quality FMV sequences that replace the PC's Decent but not great movies sequences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ghost Recon December 15, 2002
By A Customer
Just a Great game:
great graphics, sound, music, realism, and fun. Definately a game to buy this Christmas for the PS2. For a comparison, I believe it is better than Medal of Honor: Frontline, which was an amazing game. Ghost Recon has sharp, smooth graphics, powerful music, and excellent story line and replay value. (Plus the co-op multiplayer is a blast.) The AI is one of the best I've seen. My only complaint would be the lack of network adapter compatability. But, on the whole, this great is one of the best I've played and is as close to a realistic war game as it gets. I give it a perfect score.
Ratings:
graphics: 8
sound: 9
music: 10
controls: 10
realism: 10
replayability: 9.5
multiplayer: 8
fun: 10
extra features: 10
overall: 9.4

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have title for any "true" war gamer. December 10, 2004
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I could go on and on telling you about this game but instead I'll cut to the chase, breaking this game down into little pieces.

Concept - Lead five fellow Ghosts into battle using stealth and all out firepower, depending on the situation. The story is set in the near future where you will retreive documents, rescue prisoners, take hostages, and the like. The overall goal is to accomplish these tasks swiftly, silently, and invisibly, hence the name Ghost Recon.

Controls - The controls are tight and work very well, I disagree with the people saying the controls take a long time to get use to. They are great and the PS2 version makes a target zoom avilable. Never at one point did I get frustrated or confused by the controls.

Graphic - Too many people complain about this part of the game. I actually think the graphics are really good. Do take in mind that this game originated on the PC so the graphics transition to the PS2 was actually done very nicely. The graphics don't focus on "fancy" they focus on "realism" which I think many will agree is the better to strive for. I know they are not the best but the gameplay is so good that I never cared.

Sound - Ok this part is cool. All the guns sound different, as they should, but so do bullets at different distances. A bullet wizzing by your head sounds like, well, a bullet wizzing by your head and guns blazing in the distance sound cool and give you the feeling your being shot at. Now, maybe it sounds like I'm getting excited over nothing but trust me, if you crank this game through a good sound system, it'll rock.

Gameplay - The gameplay is very diverse. No two levels look alike or play alike making no levels a waste of time or give you the feeling that you've played it before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ghost Recon and Desert Siege September 26, 2004
By John
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This really contains two games listed in the title of this review. Forget what anyone says about this game. It's awsome even without online play. Once you command Bravo squad to go to a certain area and follow them, getting pinned down by machine gun fire from Russian terrorists, you'll realize how tactical it is. You have to check your map and take a secure position on high ground or a concealed area for sniping. Unfortunately the levels that require you to go inside are quit clunky, but the outside levels ranging from the Red Square to desert battlefields are quit superb. The first level is even difficult if you don't realise that as soon as you come over the hill you're getting mowed down be enemy gunfire. It's a game about planning tactical strategy. It's not as stealthy as Socom, but it's definetely more open ended as in completing levels. There's hardly a set path for most of them. It's a really fun game to play through again also. And there are plenty of unlockables.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ghost recon: Greatest Army game ive ever played. December 11, 2002
By A Customer
I recently played the demo for ghost recon on pc. I thought that it was a great game. It is the best army game i have ever played, and one of the best shooters. The graphics are really sweet but the movment isnt that great. The enemys move poorly but that is my only complaint with this game. Its great. What you do basicly is construct an A team and a B team and control one of the teams to compleat the objectives. So you have 6 lives because you can switch people everytime you die. The game itself it hard at first but when you get the hang of it its great. If you are looking for a great war game choose this. In my opinion and in all of my freinds opinions, this game is better then Medal Of Honor: Frontline. As an owner of Frontline i am not saying it is a bad game but i think that Ghost Recon is much much better. This game is a must have for the holidays.
