Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Island Thunder Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: The above question can be most simply answered with one word…yes! Island Thunder is a no-brainer for those gamers that already own Ghost Recon for the Xbox. IT should even be checked out by gamers that are new to the series; you will not be disappointed.
Excerpt: Date: 7/19/2005 Island Thunder is an expansion pack for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon that takes your elite special forces units to Cuba in 2010. After Castro's death and a period of instability marked by one dictator after another, Cuba is trying to take its first steps towards democracy and...
Excerpt: Sweet just like the first one. Saves from the first one transfer, even for online play. So if in the first one, you unlocked lots of sniper rifles, they're in the second, using the same Xbox. Missions, seem harder, but still as fun, for experienced players. Xbox live leaves me shaking afterwards.
Summary: I was one of those people who were a bit peeved at the prospect of having an expansion pack for console games. When Ubi Soft announced that was in development for the Xbox, I figured that it would be offered at a supreme discount, much like PC software.
Conclusion: game earns its price-tag by yet again standing on its own as a multiplayer romp, providing some of the best online team, cooperative, or solo shooting game fun in any title on either a console or PC today.
Excerpt: "Island Thunder" is an expansion of "Ghost Recon", the popular military simulation that became a best-seller last year. In this game, you play a team of elite marines who are sent on missions in a near-future Cuba in order to protect the country from druglords who are looking to swing the new...
Excerpt: Ghost Recon: Island Thunder is a standalone expansion that sees our elite team of U.S. Army Green Berets transported from the cold regions of Eastern Europe to the tropical climate of Cuba. The year is 2009 and Fidel Castro has long since passed, putting an end to his Communist regime.
Conclusion: G.R.I.T. could certainly have used some totally redesigned menus/selection screens as they're rather basic and sluggish to use, and just like the in-game controls take some getting used to, but if you're after an Xbox military shooter there are few better, and the £20 price tag makes it almost...
Pros: Authentic, atmospheric, brilliant sound., Co-op, versus, split screen, system link, Xbox Live., It's less than 20 notes.
Cons: Rather basic graphics and sluggish controls.
Conclusion: Island Thunder est donc un complément à Ghost Recon fort agréable, qui permet de rallonger la durée de vie de celui-ci. Les huit missions de la nouvelle campagne vous tiendront en haleine plusieurs heures et le jeu en ligne vous promet des dizaines d’heures si vous y prenez goût.
Pros: graphismes moyens, clipping et brouillard, IA ennemie parfois défaillante
