grueling just like real war

Summary: I know it sounds fatuous, even insulting to compare a video game to the real life experience of war-fighting, but I think Ubisoft when creating this series have done a good job in at least approximating the experiences of a soldier: the sense of fear and imminent death, the sound of bullets hitting the environment around you, the sight of your dead comrades by your side.
Summary: This game seemed to be passed over very quickly however is a huge mistake as it is a hidden gem. Conserving that which made ghost recon brilliant but with added playability and just fun aspects, that i believe highly influenced the very popular Rainbow 6 Vegas series.
Summary: one of the best army games around,the only problem is you really need to be online to get the full benifits out of it. the lighting and graphics are sweet,pity theres no blood though cos that would have made a more realistic war,but never mind still a good game
Summary: ok now i would like to start off that i paid £14.99 for this game and it is still very worth it. i would like to 1st point out that this is a very intense game which is exspected from a tom clancy but i would also like to including that the game is fun and doing these missions feels very meaningful.
Summary: Because on xbox live this is one of the best co-op games out. Previous reviewers slate the A.I. of your squad in the single player which is a fair comment. However if you don't have a wealth of "live" friends you can manage the single player with your "dumb" team. There is a command for them to stay put if you don't want to give your position away whilst scouting and you should consider them more of a fire support team than your military equals.
Summary: Ghost Recon 2 for the Xbox turned out to be a very exspensive game for me. I basically bought an Xbox purely for this game as I was so disappointed with the PS2 version. Since this is the Xbox version I wont write about the PS2 version here... Read the PS2 version for my opinion on that. Firstly, I would like to comment on the graphics, they are superb.
Summary: I have only been playing the game for about three days, and I am pretty impressed. The graphics are pretty enough and the missions are incredibly immersive (just wait until you see the 'hold the line' mission where you are defending the bridge - brilliant). The controls are very intuitive, and having the squad controlled by the push of a button works ok.
