Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter is the best-looking game to date on the Xbox 360, and arguably the best in the series. Even at normal difficulty, campaigns are challenging and adrenaline-pounding.

Gameplan

Players take the part of Scott Mitchell, captain of the elite Ghosts and Special Forces. A light infantry unit with members renowned for skill and heroism, they are equipped with the Integrated Warfighter System – an integrated combat system combining advanced weapon systems, satellite communication device, and enhanced survivability.

Start of Game

At the start of the game, you find Mitchell in Mexico City as one of the entourage assigned with guarding a summit between the leaders of Canada, Mexico, and the US. Mexican insurgents attack, leaving the Canadian prime minister dead and causing the disappearance of both Mexican and US presidents.

You'll explore the vast city, all the while battling renegade infantry, armored tanks and helicopters in between high-rise areas and dilapidated outskirt shanties. The city is amazingly vast and believable – you'll see this clearly upon taking your requisite helicopter rides throughout the campaign. The visuals are so realistic you truly feel you're in the city. The city sprawls with buildings and streets all the way to the horizon, and fire and smoke from factories curls up into the sky. The sunlight in Mexico City is bright and intense – oppressive and annoying at times, but is faithful to the real city.

Ultimately, what turned GRAW into a class of its own are the controls.

To help you through the immense battlefield, GRAW allows you to control not only you’re your three-man support ghost team, but also the support vehicles. Commanding Robotic UAV recon units, calling for air support, changing the rate of fire, type of grenade, sidling up to a wall, and sniping are all fitted into one 360 controller perfectly.

You can track enemies, teammates, and objectives alike with your digitally marked HUD even when they are not in your line of sight.

Commanding your unit is pretty easy. They can be commanded as a unit and they’ll respond to attack, move, or regroup commands. They are effective at firing on enemies but not when they are placed around corners – they step out and expose their location.

Medikits are absent in GRAW. You'll find ammo stations intermittently in the battlefield where you can heal yourself.

Variety of Missions

Now GRAW offers more out of the single-player campaign. There are standard capture the flag and deathmatch modes – exciting and works well with the included 10 maps. Cooperative campaign, though, is the most interesting aspect of the multiplayer repertoire. 4 particularly designed missions can be played locally or online with up to 16 players involved.

Sound and Graphics

Lastly, the sound of the game is a perfect complement to the incredible graphics. The SFX are very sharp and dynamic – each gun has its unique sound, and explosions are literally deafening as it simulates the effect when an explosion goes off near you.

GRAW is as real as it gets – the graphics, sounds, and even the adrenaline rush.

      Pros: Graphics are really good on the game
      Cons: The game play is the same and most of the guns are the same as before
      Ghost Recon has been a good game when the 1st one came out. In this one it is a little harder to play level.
