We all know that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon series is one of the best franchises out there – so how does the latest installment stack up?
Team XBox / (9.3 out of 10): “If you still haven’t gotten an Xbox 360, either because you are still on the sidelines or haven’t been able to find one, you really should do whatever it takes to get one because Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter is a must have for even the casual shooter fan. Hell, even if you aren’t a shooter fan, you shouldn’t be able to call yourself a gamer if you don’t treat yourself to the experience Ubisoft has delivered.”
IGN / (9.2 out of 10): “Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter is a next-generation game in the fullest sense, whether it’s the loaded package of impressive graphics and special effects, the top-notch sound, or the tactically enhanced gameplay. Red Storm’s four-plus months of extra time have served the game incredibly well and you can see the difference in the screenshots and you will feel it in the gameplay. It’s still Ghost Recon, which is to say it’s still a rather acquired taste in first/third-person shooters, but as the series goes, this one is easily the best one yet.”
Gamespy / (5 out 5): “It seems like we’ve been waiting a while for the Xbox 360’s first true “must-have” game, but it looks like we’ve finally got one in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter. It’s got just about everything we could want in a game, including a compelling single-player campaign, exciting competitive and cooperative multiplayer action, and one of the best Xbox Live experiences around. This is the Xbox 360’s first Halo-style killer app, and it’s one that we’ll all be playing for a long time to come.”
