Good - if you didn't pay full price

Summary: My 10 cents short and dense: Just like many others have commented, I find the game play is a little too short and it's annoying when your player automatically take cover. I paid $19.99 and I think that's value for money, but I wouldn't have paid more.
Summary: Obviously a first-class production, but alot of aspects I just hated in terms of "look and feel." Third-person felt awkward as the guy's body takes up most of the screen. First person also felt awkward because you couldn't see the gun. Targeting system felt overdone and awkward.
Summary: I have been playing Cal of Duty 2, 3 & 4 so I thought Ghost Recon would be a good side fight but so far I haven't been able to reverse the up and down gun controls like in Call of Duty and I haven't gotten out of training yet. It ain't as usuer friendly as the Call of Duty games...
I do not at all care for the "co-op" mode in this game

Summary: This game advertises itself as a local system co-op game. That is confirmed on the official xbox.com website as well. However, when you get the game and pop it in with your buddy sitting next to you ready to play, get ready to be disappointed.
Summary: My best kill on Ghost Recon ? Having hostiles taken out by a group I set up to "watch our backs." Fans of the series will be glad to hear that this iteration is far closer to the original game than the disappointing Xbox sequels.
Summary: I really like this game for many of the comments posted above. But there are an incredible number of glitches available for cheats and their a lot of rude and nasty people. You spend more time being kicked out and lagged and looking for a decent game than you actually do playing it.
Conclusion: The Single Player is excellent, albeit fairly short with some excellent set pieces, unfortunately the degredation of the game play and functionality in mulitplayer mode is very disappointing and cannot compete with games like Call of Duty 2/4.
Summary: I kind of have a love/hate relationship with sequels. When a game is great and they make a sequel one of three things can happen: 1. The sequel just stinks it up, 2. The sequel is more of the same, or 3. The sequel improves upon an already great formula.
