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.
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).
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..
Excerpt: It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since I last reviewed the first Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter . Jim and I have spent a few nights over the past 12 months shooting the crap out of…well, the scenery mostly, but let’s move on. It was, until the release of Gears of War , regarded as the best shoot-em-up on Live (not too hard seeing as Call of Duty 2 was the only other challenger), and has even slipped behind Rainbow Six: Vegas in the most played charts.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is When Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter (GRAW) released last year, it changed the Ghost Recon series in a drastic way. It changed online gaming on consoles and set a new standard for others to follow. GRAW had become a favorite for Xbox Live players with its jaw dropping visuals and excellent gameplay. One year later, Ubisoft has given us GRAW 2.
Excerpt: It does not seem that long ago that the first wave of what was called the next generation of gaming hit the store shelves. Now here we are and the sequels to some of those games are gracing us with a whole new hunk of gaming goodness.
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.
