3 awesome games, but nothing new.,
This review is from: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Gold Edition - PC (Video Game)
This package includes Tom Clancy's GHOST RECON, Tom Clancy's GHOST RECON: DESERT SIEGE, and Tom Clancy's GHOST RECON: ISLAND THUNDER.
GHOST RECON is the groundbreaking squad-based combat game. It is the best Tom Clancy game to date, and featured multiple strategies for playing, ranging from stealth to guns-blazing. The online play was phenomenal and free of lag; and can still be played. Graphics are good, but actually look a little dated.
GHOST RECON: DESERT SIEGE is the first expansion pack to GHOST RECON. It obviously took on a desert setting; but also featured many improvements. The game still had its excellent online play; but it seemed to be a slight rehash.
GHOST RECON: ISLAND THUNDER is the best and most recent expansion pack. The one-player difficulty is harder, but not to the point where people will quit. The multiplayer (online) levels seem more interesting this time, and have unique new places to take cover.
Each expansion pack improved over the last one, and made up for 3 great games. If you never tried an online squad-based combat game, you owe it to yourself. If you already own these, there is nothing new here. Console gamers who enjoyed SOCOM: US NAVY SEALS or who liked the port of GHOST RECON will find this interesting and worthwile. People who were disappointed in CONFLICT: DESERT STORM or who want a squad-based take on RAINBOW SIX would do wise also to check this out.
