This is still it - THE best tactical shooter on the market today! I started playing Ghost Recon when it had just been released back in 2001, and I loved the game from the very beginning. Other shooters have come and gone since then, with better graphics, better physics engine, better this, better that... but none come close to the depth of game play Ghost Recon provides.
Sure, it has its visual and maybe technical shortcomings in today's gaming world, but Ghost Recon compensates you with its unrivaled immersive atmosphere, with an unparalleled sense of realism, and with an amount of re-playability never again found in any other shooter game offering. There is a good reason Ghost Recon has been named "the thinking man's shooter" time and time again.
Playing Ghost Recon in multi-player Co-Op with some friends against enemy AI - whether in full-scale campaign missions or the simpler Firefight mode - is still a sheer joy, and so it comes as no surprise that even today you will find people playing Ghost Recon online pretty much 24/7.
To resort to the old cliché: If there was but ONE game I could take with me on a desolate island (that happens to house a powered computer), this is it - Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon - the only REAL tactical shooter out there, the best of its kind!
