One of the Most Delightful and Realistic Video Games To Date...
Tom Clancy's "Ghost Recon" is so real it makes one have to slap themselves after they are done playing to ensure they are back to reality.
Unlike most games where your player has tons of "health" and can take fifty shots till he goes down, in "Ghost Recon," the Ubi Soft game engine gives the player about one shot and they're down, or two/three if it's a minor wound. Talk about realistic.
The sounds are wonderful. Unlike the loud, unrealistic "blams" most games offer when a weapon is fired, "Ghost Recon" offers realistic little cracks of a rifle.
The gameplay is amazing, and the level detail and graphics are nothing short of incredible.
Imagine walking through a demolished Russian town, your troop regiment behind you, three allied tanks surrounding you. Rain is pouring down from above. All of a sudden, a crack sounds, and one of your men is down. A tank is the next down, after an MI-36 hits it. You have to think quick. You have to search the demolished buildings around you for the enemy, who is most likely hiding up in some blown-apart room.
That's what "Ghost Recon" is: one of the best video-games to date.
