The Ghosts are back and with their new lick of paint, new engine and new gameplay features they should woo the Xbox and Clancy fans alike!

Gooi al je (voor)oordelen over Ghost Recon 1 overboord want Ghost Recon 2 is een totaal nieuw spel dat je gewoon gespeeld moet hebben. De nieuwe gameplay, het geluid, de graphics; prachtig gewoonweg. Als je dit spel nog niet hebt kan je het misschien nog vragen voor Nieuwjaar maar dit is vast en zeker een spel dat je gewoon in je collectie moet hebben. Ubisoft heeft weer eens een pareltje afgeleverd.

If you're a fan of the series, I think it's safe to say that you'll have a blast with Ghost Recon 2. While the changes that have been made are pretty major, they were all implemented to enhance the experience, and it's definitely become a much more enjoyable game because of them. If you haven't played any of the games yet, now is a great time to start. The Ghost Recon series is definitely heading in the right direction, and I'm actually finding myself looking forward to see what Ubisoft has in store for me in the future.

Keine Frage, die Kampagne von Ghost Recon 2 ist schon ein schwerer Brocken. Streckt man unachtsam den Kopf aus der Deckung oder stürmt ungestüm los, landet man schnell mit einem Loch in der Stirn auf dem Boden. Für den Gelegenheits-Spieler sind die Einsätze in diesem Taktik-Shooters sicher eine enorme Herausforderung. Dafür stimmt jedoch das Missionsdesign ebenso wie die optische und akustische Präsentation. Und allein der extrem umfangreiche Multiplayer-Modus garantiert wochen- bzw. monatelangen Spielspaß.

Ghost Recon began as a PC franchise and was brought over to Xbox two years back. Though a number of people loved the original on Xbox, I found it to be ugly, cumbersome, frustrating, and, frankly, not much fun. Ghost Recon 2 -- a game not only made for consoles, but made specifically for Xbox -- fixes many of the problems I had with the original, making for one of the best shooters on Xbox.

Réalisation graphique au top, son toujours excellent, campagne longue et variée, multi plus riche que dans aucun autre jeu, nouveautés bien trouvées, Ghost Recon 2 bénéficie d’un bon nombre d’atouts qui le hissent parmi les meilleurs jeux de la Xbox. Seul petit regret, l’aspect manichéen du scénario. Les méchants sont vraiment… méchants ; leur chef, Jung, est un homme sanguinaire et sans pitié, qui n’hésiterait pas à tuer des civils sans l’intervention des sauveurs… Un peu simpliste tout de même. Par contre, l’idée de la collaboration avec des forces européennes dans les missions offre un message plus encourageant, assez loin des idées de guerre unilatérale. On sent que le travail réalisé sur ce titre a été conséquent ; on n’a jamais l’impression, présente dans pas mal de jeux, qu’un ou deux mois supplémentaires de développement n’auraient pas été de trop. Un très bon jeu. Soldats, Rompez !

I have never really been a huge Ghost Recon fan, but I rented the original Ghost Recon on Xbox and found it to be a decent game, but with a lot of flaws. Ghost Recon 2 fixes everything that the first one had problems with. Graphics are improved, and gameplay is far superior to that of its predecessors. The campaign mode is fairly entertaining and chances are you will play it a second time. The multiplayer mode whether online, or offline is still a solid piece of work. Definitely worth playing on Xbox Live. However, as I mentioned early on in this review, is Ghost Recon 2 really better then the GR 1 and Island Thunder before it? The answer is a solid “Yes”.

Ein Titel - zwei völlig verschiedene Spielerlebnisse. Während Xbox-Besitzer mit Ghost Recon 2 einen actionreichen Taktik-Shooter der Extraklasse serviert bekommen, werden PS2-Schützen mit einem anspruchslosen Abklatsch abgespeist, der jedem SOCOM-Fan nur ein müdes Lächeln entlockt. Bis auf die ganz ansehnliche Physik-Engine ist die in Shanghai entwickelte PS2-Fassung Red Storms Xbox-Pendent in jeder Hinsicht haushoch unterlegen. Angefangen bei der technischen Umsetzung, über die Soundkulisse und das Leveldesign bis hin zum Umfang und Spielkomfort spielen die beiden Namenvettern in völlig verschiedenen Ligen. Auch online machen die PS2-Ghosts gegenüber ihren Xbox-Kameraden keinen einzigen Stich - von einem lästigen und leider noch nicht gepatchten Xbox Live-Bug einmal abgesehen.

Certains le trouvent moyen, d’autres sont très déçus et étant fan moi-même de Ghost Recon je n’aurai qu’un mot à dire : ignorez ces paroles, ils ne se rendent pas compte qu’ils sont en face d’une véritable petite perle. Fun, long, avec une ambiance excellente et des graphismes sublimes, Ghost Recon 2 frappe sa cible en plein cœur et s’offre le grade de meilleur jeu d’action tactique sur Xbox. Le jeu à posséder en cette fin d’année, et ce même si l’esprit d’origine de la série a été bafoué.

All but three of the single-player missions (there are three missions in the campaign where you're not accompanied by your squad) can be played cooperatively with up to four people split-screen, through system link, or over Xbox Live. The cooperative mode, especially over Live, is a blast and it's worth the price of admission by itself. You can also set up several variations on the single-player missions in which you must infiltrate points on the map armed only with a silenced pistol, kill every enemy, or defend a position for 10 minutes.

On ne niera pas que de Ghost Recon, il ne reste pas vraiment grand-chose. Nous voici face à un titre beaucoup plus accessible, linéaire, très nerveux, un poil scripté mais qui a su conserver un certain sens du réalisme avec une gestion des dégâts intransigeante. Le mélange est détonnant et fonctionne en dépit d'un ou deux défauts d'IA ou de scripts. La question qu'il faut se poser étant surtout de savoir si les fans de Ghost Recon ne vont pas avoir une drôle de surprise quand on voit le nombre de points clés de la série qui passent à la trappe. Une suite bien lointaine de l'original, mais un très bon shooter dans l'absolu et une valeur sûre du multijoueur.

This is a game that could, and should, convert people to 'realistic' shoot-em ups, but it doesn't have enough on the surface to have that kind of appeal. Dig a little deeper and you'll find a game that is worth putting some time into and will almost certainly be enjoyable from beginning to end. It's the first hurdle that's the problem, so if you haven't poked the first tentative toe into this genre, now is the time to start. For those of you who enjoy a challenge and a bit more depth in your action games, Ghost Recon 2 is the game to play.

I’m officially getting a little tired of the Tom Clancy squad-based shooters. Now, don’t get me wrong – I think they’re good games and deserving of the devoted following that they have, but they’re all starting to blend together. Take Ghost Recon 2, for example. On paper, it seems to have a lot of novel features, like a new third-person perspective, improved squad controls, and a graphical overhaul. While it indeed has all those things, it feels more like a merger of the Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six franchises than a new game.

If the game shipped without online, we'd have to bemoan some of the issues slightly louder than we have; rushing AI nonsense, invisibly camouflaged enemies and lack of longevity would push an otherwise very accomplished game down to the realms of a seven - and if you're not planning to go online with Ghost Recon 2 then consider that a fair reflection of what the Campaign is worth. Not bad, but certainly not great, and not quite up to the standard that Rainbow Six offers. Online, though it's not perfect; we've had our fill of overpowered deathmatch-style gaming to tolerate it this time, but fine, if you like that you'll get on just fine here.

Still, if you can overlook those issues, Ghost Recon 2 is a feature-packed game, with a great campaign and loads of side modes to keep you busy. The multiplayer modes work extremely well online, and we'd be shocked if the online community didn't become one of the biggest on Xbox Live outside of Halo 2. So though it's far from perfect, it is a good overall game.

Thanks to the "Lone Wolf" addition the points for concept raise a lot. The graphics aren't up to par and the gameplay is decent at most (which is not good enough for such a title). The sounds are very good but then I'm not talking about the weapons. If you've got Live and you like this type of games, then I would suggest buying it. Be warned though, the game contains a lot of downpoints and in my opinion there aren't enough pro's to make up for the con's.

Ghost Recon 2 could have been an outstanding sequel to what is perhaps one of the best military shooter series ever made. Instead, this follow-up tiptoes along a thin line that separates old irritating habits and totally new features that don't necessarily make the gameplay better.

In militaristic video games, the propaganda of an infallible America is usually kept to a brow-beating minimum, but this is not the case in Ubisoft’s tactical action shooter, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon 2. With a Teen rating set against a heavily violent backdrop, Ghost Recon 2 is a web of duality and confusion, a mixed bag of cutting-edge features and annoying flaws. Thankfully, some great graphics and a strong online component save it from the ravages of war.
