Summary: I'm a big fan of Ghost Recon 2 and Summit Strike. These really didn't tickle my fancy with the gameplay of it and everything else. I guess you have to start and work your way up, uinstead of working your way backwards throught the Ghost Recon series as I did.
Summary: I bought this game when it first came out for the Xbox due to the fact it was one of the early FPSs available for LIVE play back then. Fisrt off the menu system is TERRIBLE! It is cluncky and confusing and the button presses don't always take during game setup. Secondly it is not well done on LIVE at all. The most the average connection will be able to handle is about 3 players online which due to the large maps is pretty dissapointing.
Summary: I am a huge Tom Clancy fan. I have played all of his games on the PC and played very heavy with online gamers. When I seen they had this on X box I was very excited, but shortly ended up disapointed. The graphics are good, but I could not seem to get anywhere at all. I can say the dificulty level for this game is a lot higher then PC version. The person is a lot harder to control on Xbox compared to the PC.
Fun if you're patience and don't mind staring for hours ....

Summary: As a former Marine, I looked forward to applying what I learned in the military to this simulation especially since I'm a big fan of Clancy's novels. The missions start with briefings and insertion into the drop site. How they got the team to the site isn't shown (Transporters??). I control two 3-man teams, Alpha and Bravo. Before the mission begins I go to the Dossier Room to set up your team.
Summary: At first its kind of difficult to get the hang of but once you do, its pretty fun. Except, every time i try to blow up a tank, it freezes. doesn't freeze with any other game, just Ghost recon #1. The disk seems to be fine, no scratches or blemishes. But when im in my third mission right at the begining i have to blow up a Tank with Ati-Tank Demolitions and right when i shoot, BAM!!! it freezes. gets pretty annoying after a while and can't finish the mission. F-IT!!
Summary: Anyone familiar with Tom Clancy games know what they're getting into when purchasing one.... having said that let's dive right into the review: GR is a squad-based FPS in the same genre as the Rainbow 6's. Graphics: Here is where the game really lacks.. If you're accustomed to Xbox graphics being astounding you're going to receive a mild-to-serious shock. The graphics look playstation one-ish.
Summary: This game was fun for a little while, untill you master the controls,after that,it's child play.The AI isn't bad,but you'd think they would see you if you're a few feet away from you instead of just walking along untill they hear a gun shot. Also, the AI just wont die!Usualy when I shoot one of them in the head,they get right back up,of course, that's if I hit them.One time I had an AK-47 pointed strait at him,but when I shot, the scatter shot hit everything except for...
Summary: Ghost Recon is good single player game. It offers a decent amount of missions and the controls are excellent, but the missions take anywhere from 5-30 minutes to beat. It will take you a maximum of one day to beat the entire game twice. It's probably a great live game (I don't know, I don't have Xbox live), but it's not worth buying for single player. Go rent it, like I did, and you'll thank me.
