8 April 2009
Summary: GRAW 2 is finally here for the PlayStation 3 console, and being a port does little to deter from its striking gameplay. Along with the online portion, you’ll be playing for hours on end to progress as one or as a team, depending on the mode chosen. The addition of the Sixaxis is a bit sloppy, but nonetheless GRAW 2 delivers. This is a Tom Clancy game no one should pass up!
Pros: Stunning visuals complemented by amazing sound, Intense missions, Great online experience.
Cons: Limited Sixaxis delays, but sensitivity customization mollify the situation., Some frame rate hiccups, Battle dialogue could be improved.
Excerpt: Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 is exactly what the PS3 needs, though the timing is probably a little off. It is no secret that the system is in dire need of good games, especially after a few highly-hyped titles like Lair and Heavenly Sword haven't lived up to expectations. At the same time, GRAW 2 already shipped for the Xbox 360 earlier this year, so its release doesn't come with quite the marketing parade.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 Review
22 July 2008
Excerpt: It's fair to say that GRAW made quite an impact when it launched for Xbox 360 in March 2006. While many 360 games from the launch period looked great, it was Ubisoft's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter that really showed what the system was capable of. Xbox 360 owners got the superb sequel back in March, but PS3 gamers can now also experience what is one of the most impressive next-gen games to date.
Excerpt: Following the failure of the coup d'état in Mexico City, Mexican rebels have gathered their remaining forces along the US border, and the whole of Mexico is undergoing a full-scale civil war. The Ghosts have fewer than 72 hours to stop a nuclear attack. It's the first time on US soil that you get the chance to lead your team of elite Special Forces - straddling the border between Juarez, Mexico and El Paso, Texas.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is As far as war games go, no other game has delivered such thrilling combat gameplay as the original Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfare, which made its debut last year on the Xbox 360. GRAW quickly established a strong fanbase, and copies were flying off the shelf in no time.
Excerpt: months. Chances are if you were going to get the game, you already have, and if you were scared off by reviews, then this one probably won't help. So why even write this? Because the game is effin' , that's why, and until recently we were having some serious issues getting online to play the much-vaunted multiplayer.
Excerpt: Ubisoft continues to crank out new additions to the Ghost Recon series, and this time, they've taken full advantage of the PS3's capabilities. Combining a balanced mix of strategy and action, GRAW 2 is an intense game that keeps the pressure on from beginning to end.
Summary: 2006's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter was rightly acclaimed to be one of the first truly next-generation games, thanks to its intense gameplay and luscious graphics. Of course, it shipped only for the Xbox 360, given that the PlayStation 3 was still in gestation at the time. Now that it's 2007, Ubisoft has delivered the first GRAW game for the PS3.
Pros: Intense, gritty modern infantry combat, Impressive multiplayer suite with countless combinations of competitive and cooperative game modes, Good looking graphics and excellent sound effects
Cons: The single-player campaign is over before you know it, Since GRAW2 is the first GRAW game for PS3, you feel like you're missing part of the story
