Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter Description
Ghost Recon 3: Advanced Warfighter shows you the future of military science, today. In 2013, the U.S. Army will implement the Integrated Warfighter System — combining advanced weapon systems, satellite communication devices and enhanced survivability into one fully integrated combat system. The first to test this new system on the battlefield are the Ghosts, as they face an insurgence in the heart of Mexico City.

If you’re looking for a combat game with amazing graphics for your XBox 360, then definitely go buy Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter. The game is fun in single, co-op and online mode!
First, the graphics, because they are just so gorgeous in high definition. The character movements are smooth and realistic. Characters tumble down stairs. Smoke billows. Leaves wave. The different types of area – beach, city, snow – all have their own look and feel.
We mostly play games single player or XBox Live – but it so happens that when we first took this game home there were 2 gamers who both wanted to play. We played the side by side co-op. It was amazingly fun! There was plenty of screen for both players and with the huge maps, there was great opportunity to flank your opponents and catch them in the crossfire.
The sound is fantastic. The ambient noise around you really adds to the feeling that you are there – from people talking, to wind noises, to the various noises made by the weaponry used. If you don’t have your XBox 360 going through a good stereo yet, now is really the time to hook that up.
I found the on screen status alerts to be both easy to read and unobtrusive.

Tom Clancy, you sly devil. You’ve got me loving modern warfare again. If I weren’t so old and asthmatic, I’d consider signing up for your army of the future.
Ghost Recon, Advanced Warfighter is a great mix of action, squad tactics and 3rd person shooter. If you try to play this game by running out in the open with your rifle blazing, you’ll find the game awful and difficult. Sadly, if you’re one of those strange-o freaks who likes to play video games in real time, crawling against the side of a virtual house for 6 hours, you’ll hate this game, too. So… who would like this game? The rest of the planet. Basically, the game design encourages you to play smart, but doesn’t force you to play slow. Many stealth games are painful to play, in my un-humble opinion, but this Tom Clancy game does stealth the right way. An important feature of this game is the “advanced” weapons and tools you have at your disposal. Futuristic graphical enemy detectors and flying drones give the game a different feel than other Tom Clancy games, and I find it a cool addition. Its not overwhelming, just a great add-on. The friendly AI isn’t always the best, but the game is designed to make up for any flaws in your team. It isn’t impossible to have a useless idiot on your team in real life, so I guess occasional AI flaws could be considered the height of realism.
Ubisoft has offered us one of the best looking games for the 360 (unless you count the pretty colors of some of the very nicely done XBLA games). Everything from the character animation to the colors and tones of the environments draws you into the game.
The voice acting is slightly better than a Spanish soap opera. (close your eyes while watching one of those and you’ll find it a lot less fun). The sound effects and score more than make up for it, though. Its easy to get lost in the game with the sound turned up.
I would have preferred full campaign co-op, as the game limits you to mission based maps that feel a bit disconnected from the main game. This, and the AI glitches mentioned earlier, cost G.R.A.W. (as all the cool kids call it) a half point from me, but this is still an excellent game to play with friends (real, imaginary or internet based).
Haven’t you heard enough? Go buy it. You don’t have to pay full price for it, of course.

You play as Scott Mitchell, captain of the Ghost forces stationed in Mexico, while the three presidents of the North American countries are signing a mutual protection act of some sorts. Things go bad at the signing when Mexican rebels led by a Carlos Oniveros storm the place, killing the Canadian president & forcing the US & Mexican presidents to run for their lives basically. Anyway, its your job to rescue said presidents and stop Ontiveros..
