Excerpt: One of Xbox Live’s most popular titles is set to make it’s next gen debut when Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter slams onto the Xbox 360 in just a few short weeks. Packing a full single player campaign, co-op support, and a slew of multiplayer options, this game is on a mission to prove it isn’t just Summit Strike with a new paintjob. Although even the paintjob is pretty damn impressive.
Conclusion: The first ‘big’ game to grace the 360 and the numbers more than back it up in terms of sales. The single player is short but offers a realistic and entertaining campaign while the online mode offers tactical team combat that requires genuine co-operation, the online co-op maps are just the icing on an already tasty cake.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter Review
22 June 2007
Excerpt: Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter's delay near the release of the Xbox 360 was a disappointment to many. E3 videos a few months prior had wowed gamers and it quickly became one of the must have 360 titles. When the game was finally seen in a playable state, the E3 demo seemed a distant memory, and doubts spread over the game's quality and the console's power.
Excerpt: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, an introduction. A lot of people tend to credit the Halo games as the main reason most people bought the Xbox. Whilst that's probably true to an extent, you can't ignore the role of Ubisoft in providing plenty of reasons for gamers to purchase an Xbox. The Splinter Cell series, the Rainbow Six series and the Ghost Recon series have all been great on the Xbox, more so than on any other console.
Excerpt: As much as online play has defined the
series, the series has just
as much been about change to me. The first game in the series was lacking in the
graphics department, but provided a slow-paced, realistic warfare experience better
than any game had ever delivered before.
Excerpt: With some franchises, the constant updates, rebrandings, add-ons and sequels get to be a bit of a bore. Every other month seemingly sees a new title in the series, with the quality of each subsequent release generally falling below average. The Ghost Recon series has managed to avoid this fate so far, and even if some previous titles haven’t lived up to their name quite as they should have, Advanced Warfighter is a real shot in the arm for Clancy and co.
Summary: The 360 version of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter is the only version you'll ever need to play. Sure the controls are a little clunky and the soundtrack is awkward, but Advanced Warfighter shines on the 360 with it's graphics. If Ubisoft throws in some new multiplayer content, I am guaranteeing this will be one of the most played 360 games this year on Xbox Live. Go buy it now!
