Ghost Recon is a game designed for the PC, which involves choosing your team from assorted experts, such as riflemen, support, assault
, demolitions, and sniper
s, and having them deployed to a crisis area, and completing objectives which are crucial to bringing down a Russian/Georgian uprising.
The missions range from rescuing hostages
in secured fortresses to stopping tanks and troops invading a Neutral safe-house. The objectives you must complete include non-crucial mini-missions, but the benefits for your doing so are in the form of experienced troops for your squads.
Reasons you may wish to play this game.
The game itself is completely opposite the majority of first-person shooter
s, because in this, stealth is more important than running in with weapons akimbo
. Doing so will get you killed rather easily. This creates a atmosphere of tension while you lie prone waiting for that Georgian
rebel to just pop his head over the hill...
The graphics too, are some of the best I've seen in a game to date. Very pretty
, I must say.
Reasons you may not wish to play this game
The game falls sort of flat on its face in the fact that it feels a little shallow in places, such as a mission set in a swamp. It leaves you with a lingering "What the hell
did i just do that for?" feeling, after tramping through the swamp just to find some Russian leader and kill everything else that moves. Also, the objectives you complete don't exactly seem to be hugely effective towards bringing down an empire
, yet, somehow it does this...
All in all I think I would recommend
this game to others though, if you have the patience for it. So in consideration of this, i give it 9/10.
