Excerpt: "...no longer than 2 days. Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Island Thunder was one of the first X-Box games I bought - expecting a dazzling first person shooter combined with a bit of military tactics - a subject I always find facinating. How wrong I was! - The basic plot is that you control 2 recon teams dropped into post Castro Cuba to search and destroy training camps - drug factories - barracks etc. Each team comprises of 4 people and orders can be given ...
Pros: Good sound effects - price
Cons: poor quality graphics - poor gameplay - shocking tactics - too easy to complete
Excerpt: "Ghost recon island thunder is the sequel to ghost recon, how ever its more like a add on pack you would get on the p.c the game is short and doesnt havent to much different from the last game, GAME INFO: player 1 or 2 system link 1 to 16 online enabled 16+ The game only has 8 missions based in CUBA, these basically all have the same pattern you are given a misson to complete, if a team member dies (in some not all) mission over, or if you ...
Summary: This game is a tactical squad based shooter and is very difficult although I have completed it. The single player has eight missions and is very good, incredibly tense and gritty and very realistic two shots and you're dead, but you control a team of six so you can just change and control one of them; a great feature I've never seen used before. The only bad thing about the single player is the saving facility badly designed.
Excerpt: "Ghost Recon : Island Thunder is another amazing game from Ubi Soft. -------------------- Game Info-------------------------------- *16+ *Ubi Soft *1-16 system link *Players 1-2 *Online Enabled ------------------------------------------------------------------ Ghost Recon is set in Cuba which involves 8 challenging missions from protecting civilians to capturing resistance leaders. Before you have even arrived at the menu screen, there is ...
Pros: Xbox Live gameplay is amazing
Cons: Xbox Live - game does 'lag' if too many people are in a game
Summary: While this is pushed as a multiplayer or on-line game it does still have a single player set of missions. As a lone player with no live link or any gaming pals (they're all too growm up) I can only play the single player missions. However, the game is so highly rated I thought it must be OK.
Summary: I'm a major fan of the original Ghost recon, and in fact a very devoted Tom Clancy fan, owning every Rainbow 6 game and the unique Splinter cell. The main appeal of this game, to me, was the multiplayer. I don't have XBOX live, so this review wont cover that, it will however, cover the System Link and Single Player. Firstly. Graphics: They've have a tune up, not by much. Everything's still very... uninspired, but it feels realistic for some reason.
Excerpt: "Ghost Recon Island Thunder on the Xbox. This game is a stand alone game (which means you don't need the original to play it.) Which expands on the game play of the original (see my review of that for full details!) and takes the game to new heights on XBox Live. The game is basically identical to the original, but offers 8 new maps to fight it out on and 4 favorite maps from the original. As with the original, there is a single player mode, ...
Summary: Ghost recon thunder island is a brilliant game(my favourite). The singleplater missions are great fun and the multiplayer possibilities are huge. On live you can play up to 12 players with loads of different game modes. I am possotive this game will give you hours of enjoyment. I would recomend this game to all xbox owners but for those of you with xbox live it is a must have. Finnally the graphics are truely imense.
Isalnd Thunder + XBox Live + Friends = Lost of Fun

Summary: I'm not usually into this kind of game, snooping around pretending to be a soldier out in the jungle shooting bad people etc... And I found the single player game of Ghost Recon to be just that, not much fun (for me), however going on-line with this game is a different story altogether. Although it's the same game, it's much more fun snooping around the jungle trying to kill you're mates!
Summary: Island thunder for the xbox is an amazing game. Not only is it a great single player game but it also has the wonderful xbox live enabled with it too. It really comes into it's own on xbox live however, and there is nothing better than shooting your mate after an long sneak around the map. Old map favourites are still here from the first GR like Embassy, and now there is downloadable content. Already you can download an awesome map by the name of refinery.
