Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: For the most part, the multiplayer from the first GRAW has remained largely the same, with a few exceptions. Graphic whores will surely be unhappy to hear that the multiplayer offering doesn’t look as good as the single-player campaign, although there have been some visual improvements here and there (particularly the lighting).
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 review (X360)

Excerpt: You finally accept that you're safe. You switch off. Thoughts of caution are pushed to the back of your mind and you think about the next trial, the next slice of war. You're wrong to do so. There's not going to be a happy ending.
Conclusion: A better game than the first one but not by much and it never really convinces you that it is a full blown sequel rather than a mere upgrade If you own neither game then buy this one for sure, otherwise its too short to jusify full price to stick to renting..
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 Review
25 January 2008
Excerpt: It's fair to say that GRAW made quite an impact when it launched for Xbox 360 in March 2006. While many 360 games from the launch period looked great, it was Ubisoft's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter that really showed what the system was capable of. Almost exactly a year on we find ourselves confronted by the sequel.
Well-done tactical shooter with multiplayer modes.

Summary: Parents need to know that this game contains plenty of explosions, shooting, and violent deaths. Players are expected to work with a team to tactically eliminate enemy soldiers on a variety of battlefields. The battlefield language can get a little colorful with words like "damn" and "hell" used during cutscenes. This game has an online component so that players may be exposed to language from other online players.
Conclusion: All this being said, the game is still an acquired taste. It is the best of its kind but it still takes a certain mindset to fully enjoy (read: patient people). If you're a twitch shooter and think stealth is for sissies, you might want to rethink any decision to buy this game. As I said before, there's not a massive learning curve but it is definitely there.
Pros: Improved controls. Improved interface. Ally viewpoint control. Graphics and sound are awesome. Multiplayer customization improvements. Lots of great co-op and multiplayer maps;
Cons: A few nagging control issues that should have been fixed this time around. The game is still an acquired taste and although easier than ever before, it still has a learning curve to get around. Somewhat short campaign mode and no co-op mode to go through the single player campaign.
