NOTE: Requires full version of Ghost Recon to play Ghost Recon: Desert Siege!
I almost exclusively play multiplayer on UBI's gaming network or over my IP. This being said, its a fair statement to say that this mission pack adds an entire new world to the online gaming experience. Not only are there many new single player maps available, but also several multiplayer maps just begging for modern combat. Heck, I would have paid just for the multiplayer maps and the new 'Siege' option while in multiplayer.
Siege allows you to be on the defensive or offensive squad with the goal of capturing a marked location or defending it. This is great fun, especially with max realism and no respawns because you can picture yourself going for the objective on the map as if it were assigned to you in real life...
I dont need to go on. If you liked (or in my case, love Ghost Recon), buy this pack. Support Red Storm and be ready for an amazing fun factor with this expansion!
There are a few good modifications out there such as my favorite, the Barrett Weapons Mod, which take the game to a whole new level. Most of these mods are available as free downloads on the Ghost Recon website. Taking out a terrorist at about half a mile away, in the desert, with a Barrett .50 cal is very addictive!
If you enjoyed the first two Ghost Recon games, then you will really like Desert Siege.
The levels are all situated in the day for the most part on hot desert lands with the sun beating down as always, and there is a level settled in the nighttime. Textures for these levels are pretty good, I must say; nicely planned out, interesting, with nice camouflage-like physical features, such as dense shrubbery, bushes, rivers, etc. Surprisingly though, there is nice topography, with mountains for good sniping and for some difficult moments. On the other hand, in quick mission mode, you are given about 15 or so of new and old levels for enjoyment and value. I must admit that I was motivated to play those levels just for complete enjoyment and entertainment.
Gameplay is usual and peculiar in some ways. When you unlock the 7th or 8th level in campaign mode, the specialist fighters don't have any new, powerful weapons, like in Ghost Recon (orig)--not even that; you don't even have the possibility of seeing some of the state-of-the-art weaponry of these specialists.....Oh, and you don't unlock any specialists in quick mission mode, which, I think, decreased the value of the game. The artificial intelligence is not better, absolutely not. They get stuck sometimes in hallways, and worst of all, your partner, sometimes, doesn't follow you...and if you need back up, you must go back and give him the message for him to follow you.
Sound is worse. Redstorm seems like they got the music and some of the sounds off of Kazaa--or worse quality type audio; it's a little fuzzy.Read more ›
