Easily the best combat experience available on the PS3 (with the possible exception of Resistance), Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 is precisely the game that military shooter fans must own. With astounding graphics (especially for the all-important and terrifyingly frequent explosions), a sweeping symphonic soundtrack, a surprisingly deep story and a smooth multiplayer experience, GRAW 2 proves that the PS3 can perform just as well as the 360 any day of the week.

The added multiplayer in Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 should be enough to drive the game's fans towards a purchase, at least if your only concern is the multiplayer aspect. Anyone looking for a lengthy single-player experience won't find it here, though the gameplay is good enough that you'll probably want to play through more than once.

Overall, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 is an incredible game for the PS3. There isn't much to warrant another purchase if you own the Xbox 360 version, since the Sixaxis support is unnecessary and the new maps, while a great addition, come at the tradeoff of the lack of Xbox Live, which is obviously a better online experience. However, if you haven't played the Xbox 360 version, there is no reason to not have this game if you have a PlayStation 3 and consider yourself a hardcore action fan. GRAW 2 is undeniably one of the best gaming experiences on the PS3, even despite the fact that it's been available on another system for months.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 is a great sequel to an already great game. The small improvements and tweaks make the core experience even more enjoyable than it already was. GRAW 2 has a challenging and captivating (though short) campaign mode, great multiplayer options and it's a stunning technical achievement. Certainly a must-buy title.

The Next Level
Tom Clancy might have his name attached to more games on the market than any one man should, but you have to admit the man gets behind some quality product. From Splinter Cell to Rainbow Six, he's got all this shooter bases covered. With the slow drip of PlayStation 3 titles, anything Mr. Clancy wants to drop on that system is a welcome addition to the library. So before the shrink wrap is even torn off, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 has a leg up. To GRAW veterans it might not feel like anything more than a fully priced expansion pack, but to the uninitiated PS3 owner it's a fun shooter with some seriously deep multiplayer.

GRAW 2 is unquestionably a huge success. A short campaign aside, it does everything GRAW fans would want from a sequel and once again confirms Ubisoft as one of the leading next-gen publishers. It also proves that Xbox 360 to PS3 ports needn't be sloppy. Yearly releases are often looked down upon as the work of cash-hungry publishers, but somehow GRAW 2 has proved that to be completely wrong. Who knows what Ubisoft has in store for the future, but the GRAW series is almost guaranteed to be remembered as one of the best this gen had to offer. Let's hope they can perform the same miracle next year.

At the end of the day it is clear GRAW 2 has made a successful transition from to the PS3. The visuals are stellar, the sound is strong, the campaign is engaging and the online play will be a welcome breath of fresh air, especially for online hungry PS3 owners. If you haven't played the GRAW franchise on the Xbox 360 then GRAW 2 for the PS3 will knock your socks off. For PS3 owners and shooter fans alike this is a must buy in every sense of the word.

The mission is a definite Go for Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter and on the PS3 this is where the game really shines. This is a worthwhile sequel that not only looks amazing but, thanks to the PlayStation 3’s innovative controls, it also feels better than the Xbox 360 version. If you’re a fan of the series or are looking for an exhilarating tactical shooter for the PS3, this is the game you really need to buy right away.

There's no doubt about it, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 is a superb title. The addition of over a dozen multi-player maps and a few new game modes makes this a fantastic package. Sure, the single player game is great and will keep you entertained for days, but it’s the online gameplay that is likely to hold the long-term appeal. I would put this game up there with Warhawk and Resistance: Fall of Man in that regard. Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 is a fantastic action title that deserves to be in every action fans collection without hesitation.

As a single-player game, alone, GRAW 2's four-to-five hour campaign is short even by new-gen standards. However, when you toss in multiplayer and keep in mind that the original GRAW is still one of the most popular online games, the game becomes a much better investment. Nonetheless, value proposition questions aside, it's hard to ignore that this is one the best-looking and most fun games on the PlayStation 3.

Thankfully, there are a ton of multiplayer options to keep your itchy finger on the trigger. There are solo, team and co-op game types with up to 16 players battling it out online. With built in clan support, there is plenty of opportunity for tactical shooter fans to maintain a robust online community. To GRAW veterans it might not feel like anything more than a fully priced expansion pack, but to the uninitiated PS3 owner it's a fun shooter with some seriously deep multiplayer.

GRAW2 for the PS3 is another re-made winner from Ubisoft. If you’re new to the Ghost Recon series then you will most likely be more than satisfied with the action GRAW2 provides. GRAW2 is polished up to handle the PS3 and plays as good as its Xbox 360 counterpart. This is a great game to boost your PS3 library which supports some great multiplayer action. The only downside is that there isn’t anything new for multi-console gamers who want a re-vamped version of GRAW2. Overall, this one is easy... it’s a must have, lock and load.

Playstation Front
Um es gleich vorweg zu nehmen: Wer den ersten Teil mochte, wird auch mit GRAW 2 glücklich. Die Missionen sind sehr spannend inszeniert und unterhalten über die komplette Spieldauer. Auch die taktischen Kämpfe sind wieder sehr gut gelungen und wer sich beim Spielen langweilt, sollte dringend einen Arzt aufsuchen. Da die Steuerung schon bei Teil Eins sehr gut war, war es nur logisch nichts daran zu verändern. Euer Team steuert sich intuitiv, wobei gelegentliche Aussetzer zu verschmerzen sind. Einen kleinen Fauxpas leistet sich hingegen die etwas merkwürdige Story. Natürlich handelt es sich bei GRAW 2 um ein Tom Clancy Spiel, das aus der Sicht der Amerikaner erzählt wird, dennoch hätte auf den übertriebenen "Hurra-Patriotismus" durchaus verzichtet werden können.

Game Over Online
Much like the Xbox 360 version, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 for the PlayStation 3 is a tremendous game. The visuals are a little muddier, the SIXAXIS controls are for the most part negligible, and the online lobby system isn’t as sophisticated as the Xbox 360 version, but those are all minor issues in the big picture. Whether you’re in the market for a solo or multiplayer tactical military shooter, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 delivers in spades.

Schade nur, dass man beim Missionsdesign auf Nummer sicher gegangen ist und bis auf die Möglichkeit der Vollbildsteuerung von Drohne, Teamkameraden & Co keine großen spielerischen Neuerungen präsentiert. Inhaltlich könnte GRAW 2 durchaus als Add-On durchgehen, das technisch geliftet wurde. Trotzdem ist der zweite Einsatz der Ghosts für mich neben dem Erstling und den Rainbow-Jungs ein Vorzeige-Taktikshooter für die XBox 360, der die Xbox Live-Leitungen sicherlich zum Glühen bringen wird.

Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 est un excellent jeu d'action doté d'une incroyable atmosphère. Il reprend le flambeau de la série avec panache même s'il est maintenant clair que les Ghosts se tournent vers le grand public avant de tout faire exploser. L'aspect stratégique est certes toujours là, mais avec tout votre attirail high-tech, il semble que les terroristes, aussi malintentionnés soient-ils, ont bien du mal à tenir la route.

PlayStation 3 owners may not have had the chance to play GRAW, but that didn’t stop Ubisoft from bringing them the sequel to the Xbox 360 hit. It also shouldn’t stop you from playing this game.

Sure, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 hit the PS3 a little later than some would have liked, but it was well worth the wait. A solid port that offers a ton of single- and multi-player content for the price, a solid if slightly campy story (your supposedly hard-assed commander is a hoot), and some seriously solid gameplay make this a joy to play through... even if you do it a couple months after the game actually came out.

If you’re hungering for some good tactical shooting action for your PS3, you could do a lot worse than GRAW 2. Ubisoft has creating a culturally relevant, intensely playing shooter than must be experienced if you have any interest in the genre. Sure, it’s pretty short, but there are no slow spots to speak of and the game is never boring. Throw in an excellent multiplayer game, and you’ve got an excellent reason to make GRAW 2 a purchase. GRAW 2 is highly recommended for any tactical shooter fan.

GameSpot
There's such a wealth of content in the multiplayer suite that it alone makes GRAW2 an easy purchase for multiplayer fans. The flip side to this is that if you don't like to play online, then GRAW2 is an iffier proposition. The single-player game is fun, but its brevity is certainly an issue. Still, if you're a fan of modern combat, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 makes a compelling case for a game that you have to play.

If you own a PS3 and haven't played GRAW 2 before, you owe it to yourself to pick the title up. The controls are easy to get into, the graphics look great, and there's a load of multiplayer options. You're looking at a fun romp … through the horror of war.

Man, soldiers sure do get all the fancy gear...especially in Tom Clancy's world. You know that scene at the beginning of Willy Wonka when Wonka lets the kids into the room where all the plants are made of candy? Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 is kind of like that, only with guns instead of chocolate.

Nun können endlich auch Besitzer einer Playstation 3 mit den Ghosts die Welt vor bösen Terroristen retten. Die Version für die Playstation ist nahezu ihnaltsgleich mit der Xbox-360-Version (siehe Test in COMPUTER BILD SPIELE, 5/07, "gut"). Grafisch und spielerisch hat es weder Verbesserungen noch Verschlechterungen gegeben. Schade, dass die Möglichkeiten der Sixaxis-Spieletastatur nicht wirklich überzeugen. So lassen sich auf Wunsch einige Bewegungen der Spielfigur durch die Bewegungssensoren ausführen, doch ist dies für fortgeschrittene Spieler zu unpräzise. Ansonsten ist die Bedienung trotz der vielen Möglichkeiten auf dem Gamepad eingängig und gelungen. Wenn man von dem ungenutzten Leistungspotential der Konsole einmal absieht, ist der zweite Einsatz der Ghost in Mexiko eines der besten Spiele für taktikorientierte Actionfans auf der Playstation 3.

If you’ve been missing out on the GRAW series on the Xbox 360 or PC but were always a little curious, you owe it to yourself to give GRAW2 a look. Practically every PS3 owner should give this one a spin, as the PS3’s sparse lineup seems desperate for a winner. GRAW2 may be a few months late but the wait was definitely worth it and patient PS3 owners have been rewarded with one of the best titles for the console yet.

Despite the slight presentation issues and a shorter-than-short campaign mode, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 is a fun action game. It looks and plays splendidly -- and kudos to Ubisoft for not throwing in some crappy gimmick to take advantage of the SIXAXIS. Lock and load and save Mexico already.

If you're interest is with multiplayer, GRAW 2 has plenty of options that actually outweighs single-player. Graphics look just as good and there are additional maps and missions in co-op or competitive modes. Overall, if you liked the first GRAW, you can look forward to more excellent military shooter action, with excellent multiplayer features.

It has only been a year since the original GRAW came out to acclaim across multiple platforms, which doesn't allow tons of time to make major changes in the game. The game has definitely been optimized for performance and the new settings allow for some nice tactical play. However, the single player campaign is noticeably shorter than before - fortunately the enhancements to multiplayer make up for that loss. However you play, there is something fun awaiting you in the new addition to theGhost Recon franchise.

Worth Playing
Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 is a little late in coming to the PS3, but it still manages to be one of the console's most thrilling shooters. It has many apparent flaws, but games don't come without flaws. If only every shooter could create such a complex yet satisfying experience, the genre would be so much better for it. Regardless of whether you're playing the single-player campaign or are out there in multiplayer matches, your frustrations with the title's little problems will frequently melt away into pure gaming bliss.

AceGamez
With so much to it, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 is definitely a package that has something for everyone. The main single player game is like a shot of adrenaline administer on the battlefield, a huge rush that can only sustain you for a short time where, once it's over, the pain of the direct hit taken by your wallet quickly returns. With this in mind, if solo play is all you're interested in then, as good the game is, it's definitely worth a rental but possibly not an all out purchase. On the other hand, if you also enjoy a bit of multiplayer combat then you should seriously consider drafting GRAW 2 into your PS3 game collection as quickly as possible.

Gaming Age
GRAW 2 brings a solid multiplayer experience to the Playstation 3 with multiple modes to choose from, and it's worth checking out even if you find yourself currently immersed in Warhawk or Resistance. However, if you are picking this up for the single player game alone you'll be better off waiting for a price drop or a rental.

So at the end of the day, what has Advanced Warfighter to offer? It’s a good game with a good chunk of content that will take you a while to get through, a good array of difficulty levels to allow you to customize your experience to your ability and a passable, pseudo-Clancy story of political intrigue that plays out as you progress. If you’ve got a 360, there’s no reason to buy the PS3 version - with the 360 version currently retailing for around $60, you could pick up two games for the price of one and have the exact same experience. However if you don’t have a 360 and you’re looking for a Clancy-themed strategic shooter, this is your only option. Fortunately it’s a pretty good one - there’s enough here to justify the purchase, even if people won’t automatically pick that you’re playing on a next-gen console.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 isn’t breaking new ground in the tactical shooter market, but it’s another solid entry in the Tom Clancy series of games. Fans of the last one or people who want to show what the PS3 can do graphically will like it, but you might want to give Rainbow Six: Las Vegas a chance first.
