Trivia

It may seem strange to PS2 owners that second add-on to Ghost Recon, yes this very Island Thunder was released for Xbox and PC, yet not for PS2. Well, it may be hard to notice, but the third add-on, Jungle Storm, which is PS2 exclusive contains both Jungle Storm and Island Thunder full scenarios. There is very little of it said on the box cover as it looks like Jungle Storm only, but once you start the game you see Jungle Storm is the main game, but Island Thunder that was amiss for PS2 players is full contained as an alternate scenario to be played.
