Not the best Tom Clancy. Way too hard! Maybe ok for MP though

Summary: I have played all the Tom Clancy games back to Rainbow 6 on PC. I play Ghost Recon on Elite mode always and sometimes R6 with just Chavez and a 9mm pistol for the challenge. But this game is way way way too hard even for me! It's as well you can save anytime, because in some missions you will want to save after every kill.
Summary: I really liked the first GR and had it on PC and Xbox. I have to say I think GR 2 is worse. The single player game is pretty awful, with amazingly bad AI who wander into your sights, barely flinch when they get shot, and have no concept of defense or using cover. A shame when compared to the fantastic AI of ubisofts other squad shooter Brothers in Arms. Also the guns are all too samey, with no real variation in damage or handling within different guns classes.
Summary: this game is very hard, the first level is too hard for a first level, pretty much 2 shots and you die, considering a helicopter with mini guns comes at you and its hard to blow up with what you have, i think it is a real let down because the first level generally is to give you a feel for the controls but this is way too hard. another point is the enemy AI. its pants!
Summary: I am great fan of the original Ghost Recon, but I am sadly disappointed with the new Recon 2. It has some gorgeous graphics, but the AI of your troops and the enemy is dull as dishwater. The mission is now totally linear as opposed to Recon 1 where you could choose how to attack each mission. Your troops are thick as theives, they take enemy fire without taking cover and rarely attack back effectively, leaving you to do all the work.
Summary: I have been a big fan of rainbow six and ghost recon from the pc. I was very upset the way they dumbed down the third instalment of R6 and am not too happy with Ghost recon 2. Having only one team in effect severely limits your options for ambushes, defences and simple bounding overwatch (full spectrum warrior fans will know what I mean).
