Actionreiche Terrorhatz im Team - leider ohne Multiplayer-Modus. [...] Technisch sowie inhaltlich orientiert sich die Gamecube-Version an der PS2-Fassung, d.h. keine Speichermöglichkeiten in den Missionen und kein Umschalten zur Ego-Ansicht.
Ne cherchez pas le rapport avec Ghost Recon il n'y en a pas. On se demande un peu ce qui a pris à Ubisoft d'utiliser cette franchise pour faire un titre qui n'a ni tactique, ni réalisme. On se console alors en considérant le soft comme un jeu d'action lambda, mais là encore, on est déçu par une IA moyenne, des scripts envahissants et une réalisation en dents de scie.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon 2 for GameCube should be a non-stop fun, addictive military-themed shooter. It seems to have all the right ingredients. There is a fairly predictable, but nonetheless intriguing storyline. There are some smartly implemented solo and squad-based gameplay mechanics complemented by relatively tight control. You can shoot things. You can explode things. What's not to like? The unfortunate answer is the overall execution of the port. It's a wee bit sloppy, which doesn't entirely ruin the experience, but certainly puts a dent in it. The result is a game that's enjoyable at times and nearly unplayable others, largely because of a sometimes poor framerate, or stupidly implemented artificial intelligence squad members. Although Ubisoft gets points for including cool Solo and Firefight modes for gamers who don't want to worry about strategy or planning, it loses those points for omitting any multiplayer experience from the GameCube port.
Ghost Recon 2 completely fails to live up to its predecessor in every way possible. I was hugely let down by this game, as I expected much more from the people that brought us the Sam Fisher series. I feel like this game relied too much on the Tom Clancy legacy and did not even bother to actually deliver a game worthy of such a quality-evoking name.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon 2 fails to live up to the lofty expectations of its own brand thanks to simplistic gameplay, lackluster presentation, a lack of multiplayer, and an overall dearth of polish. Players who simply can't get enough of modern-style shooters may find some redeeming value in the game, but for the rest of us, there are much better alternatives out there.

I'm really surprised how poorly Ghost Recon 2 for the GameCube turned out. Uninspiring level design, terrible squad AI and a lack of multiplayer support all contribute to a frustrating and ultimately dull gaming experience. I simply can't recommend this title to military shooter enthusiasts, let alone newcomers to the series.
Ghost Recon 2 is, more or less, how not to release a game. First of all, both the PlayStation2 and Xbox games should have been equal, but the PlayStation2 version is far inferior. To make matters worse, not only is this GameCube game a port of the PS2 version, it's lacking the multiplayer qualities that may have made the PS2 version slightly bearable. It's too bad that the GameCube's release list has grown quite small in recent months, but please put your cash towards something more worthwhile than this tossed-together title – Ghost Recon 2 for Xbox, for example, is a much, much better investment.
