Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm
7 April 2005
Excerpt: PC port or no, Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm 's graphics seem a bit watered down. The same theme is kept from the computer's visuals: good animations, detailed people, horrible looking underbrush and bland landscapes. The visuals also carried over that 'sharp' look that is so prevalent in most of the Tom Clancy titles. Trees, people, buildings, everything looks a bit too rigid for the eye to cope with. This isn't to say the graphics are all bad.
Conclusion: After the briefing you’ll come to an opportunity to choose six squad members, which vary in class, stats and equipment. Classes range from support, sniper, demolitions and a few others. Stats and equipment are mostly linked to the class of the officer, such as sniper rifles for snipers and higher endurance for support. Time to deploy. Graphically, GR:JS doesn’t get the job done.
Excerpt: Sequel, expansion pack, it’s so hard to tell the two apart these days. Let’s just call Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm the latest instalment in the squad-based tactical shooter series and leave it at that. It includes the Island Thunder campaign, which was previously released on the PC and Xbox, as well as a PlayStation 2 exclusive campaign, aptly named Jungle Storm. Sounds like a deal to me. Let’s check it out. Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm sees our elite team of U.S.
Excerpt: Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm has received little attention or praise from the gaming media. Due to the lack of hype whatsoever, I expected this to be an utter failure. Thankfully, Ubi Soft has once again proven to be above the fray and ahead of the competition. Jungle Storm comes packed with a large number of game modes, including multi-player, online play, and single-player.
Conclusion: All in all, Ghost Recon: Jungle storm doesn't feel like a complete game. It may have all the elements associated with a GR title, but the gameplay is a little too slow and docile, and the graphics too dated to hold the interest of the casual gamer, and for those who like the genre, there is nothing much that they haven't seen before.
Pros: Atmospheric as you like., Excellent for tactical nuts with lots to get stuck into., Finally get to play Americans online!
Cons: Not enough improvements from the original game to warrant purchase from anyone but the ardent GR fan., Graphics are still rather ugly., Inconsistent AI., Flawed Online mode.
