Great Games and Accessories for the Xbox 360 from Gamesbuyer.
In a nutshell:
Mexico City has been overrun by terrorists and only the Ghost Recon team can restore order through the use of extreme violence. You command not just your three team mates but a high-tech array of weapons, armoured vehicles and aircraft.
Although it still plays very similarly to the last Ghost Recon game, this is easily the most impressive of the series so far. The graphics, particularly on the Xbox 360, are extraordinary with a whole city sprawling out in front of you at a previously unimaginable level of detail. Unlike some squad based shooters the controls are simple and intuitive, allowing you to take part in the action and order about soldiers and vehicles at the same time with the minimum of fuss. The questionable artificial intelligence of your allies is the only serious flaw, but the ability to explore the city and plan your attack from any angle usually overcomes this problem.
Most exciting moment:
Calling in a helicopter gunship as you and your men are pinned down by a dozen terrorists, snipers and tanks.
Since you ask:
The game is set in 2013 and all of the high-tech weaponry is based on equipment the U.S. expects to have in operation by then even the Metal Gear Solid style flying recon drones.
The bottom line:
Incredible graphics and one of the best squad based shooters ever.

Fast forward 7 years from now to Mexico and you'll have the game's setting in a nutshell. You are the Captain of the Ghosts, a crack team of operatives of whom you have complete control due to the innovative "cross-com". This "cross-com" is effectively your standard HUD, but from which you can command your team members, identify targets and objectives and plan your missions in detail. It's a system that works exceptionally well.
There are eleven missions in total and whilst this might not seem extensive, the difficulty is pitched at the perfect point, where stealth and planning are paramount - it's a great feeling coming up against a situation, taking the time to prepare, and nailing it first time.
Controlling yourself and your troops does take some time as GR:AW makes full use of every click, flick and button press of your controller. However you'll soon be commanding your men with ease, forcing them into recon mode for a softly-softly approach, or imposing assault mode for a fire-at-will. Your team-mates AI is equally impressive.
GR:AW is full of touches which accentuate it's class. If you start to wander too far off the map you won't be hit with a Tony Hawks-style brick wall, instead your HUD will start gathering interference, and you'll be told in no uncertain terms to get back to the battlefield!Read more ›
All the trailers I have seen for this game have been gameplay footage - there aren't really any cut-scenes to speak of. Between missions whilst travelling in a heavily armoured vehicle or chopper you are able to look around whilst dialogue is played out. Character models, animations and scenery are all stunning and are as close to lifelike as I've seen on any game. Best viewed in high-definition though.
Ghost Recon makes great use of a surround sound system as it enables you to pinpoint where voices, gunfire and explosions are coming from. There is music in the game but its mostly incidental and infrequent, allowing you to listen to the sound effects and hear enemies moving before they start shooting at you.
This is a great game to play, with straight-forward controls and enough tools to get the better of your enemies making it easy to get to grips with, but it is hard, even on normal. It doesn't take many shots to kill you, there are no energy packs and you can't save between checkpoints - so you'll often replay some sections over and over in order to reach the checkpoint. Its a minor problem in the grand scheme of things.
Most of the missions involve leading your team through the streets of Mexico city to rescue people or blow things up. A simple system of pointing at a location with your crosshairs and pushing up on the d-pad will issue an order to your 3 team mates, or a tank or a helicopter gunship. Making the most of your team is the key to success, although it doesn't lead you along like Call of Duty 2.
With plenty of Live options and downloadable content and a game format that feels like Socom 2 on steroids, you really can't go wrong.
The Missions are fun, and dont get repeative. Many similar games i have played can get repeative, start...stealth mode for a bit, shoot, then end of mission, then the next mission it happens again in similar surroundings etc, such a Call of Duty or Rainbow6. However, GRAW seems to make excitement every mission, something new, working within a team. Also you get "intel" from supporting black hawks in the sky, giving you a sense of relism, as in a real war situation.
I thought i was taking a risk buying this game, espically for the price. I was very suprised at how well this game has come out, the designers have done themselves proud. I would definatly definatly recommended this to anyone who is considering buying this game, in doubt? just get it! you will be grateful. One of my favorite games on the XBOX360.
This new ghost recon generally doesn't differ much from the others, it doesn't offer much new, missions are good but become quite tedious towards the end of the game as does the same old plot, here's how it goes, terrorists try to take over the world, you go in blow a few things up, shoot some people end of story...... Are you still awake? This is entertaining but I just think that a change was needed to make a real impact for its debut of the xbox 360. New console needs new plot. Some people will disagree. I'm not a fan of ghost recon but I also don't not like it I'm half-cast so I'm just an average gamer who plays on this game. This is a GOOD game so fans of previous titles go out and buy it, if you like shooters alot go out and buy it. But just don't expect anything very mind-blowing or amazingly new.
I don't have xbox live so this review is only based on the main campaign.
Value for money 8/10
