Ezio Auditore, Sam Fisher and The Ghosts are about to go Hollywood. This weekend, Ubisoft Motion Pictures confirmed plans to break into the movie biz with 3D films based on the Assassin's Creed, Ghost Recon and Splinter Cell franchises...
Cue the banjo! It wouldn’t be the Week of Hate without our trademark “100 Reasons” videos. In case you missed it, last year we targeted game platforms. So this year we thought we’d change it up and go after a few popular genres. Up first, the ubiquitous shooter.
To celebrate Independence Day (the holiday, not the movie), we’ve scoured our encyclopedic minds for the most patriotic games to be developed. But that wasn’t funny enough. So, we dug deeper to find the most rabidly patriotic games every developed. Ya know - the ones with so much love for Old Glory that it starts to get a little ridiculous. Behold - our results!America's ArmyUS Army | 2002Any game can add the word
If you still put Gears and Halo down for the odd blast on Ubisoft's tactical shooter, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, then you'll be pleased to know that it has been expanded once again with another huge co-op DLC pack on Xbox Live.The new 'Co-op Collection 2' pack gives you another massive co-op campaign, consisting of nine new maps; two brand new and seven classic levels from previous Ghost Recon games. It'll also give you the chance to
If you're part of the rabid Tom Clancy fanbase still taking cover and pot-shotting terrorists in Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2, you'll be interested to hear that an entire new co-op campaign has arrived on Xbox Live - if you're willing to pay for it, that is. A rather reasonable 800 Microsoft points ($10 or £.6.50) gets you five co-operative maps and a further four adversarial maps, two all-new and seven taken from earlier Ghost Recon games. There's also 125 gamerpoints worth of
Oct 17, 2007 If you like a bit more strategy in your shooter you'll be pleased to hear that Ubisoft plans to release the GRAW 2 co-op Collection on Xbox Live late next month, bolstering its tactical blaster with a shed-load of new content. The pack includes five brand new campaign missions continuing the story from GRAW 2 and nine adversarial maps for online play. Seven of those nine are remakes from Ghost Recons past (Caves, Railroad Bridge, Battlefield, Plantation, Swamp Airfield, Prison
Aug 29, 2007 If you're going to put a shooter on a portable system - and why not? - Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 does a decent job of trying to cram the action of a non-portable console action game into the PSP. It's dropped the typical squad based combat of its counterparts, and instead you play the lone-wolf soldier Capt. Scott Mitchell. Let's get the obvious thing out of the way first: There's only one analogue stick. To be fair, we knew that when we got our PSPs, though.
Aug 20, 2007 After last year's disappointing and watered-down PS2 port of the first GRAW title, this is PlayStation's first proper look at Ubisoft's reinvigorated tactical shooter. An extension of the original Ghost Recon series, Advanced Warfighter is set a little further into the future - we're now shooting the happy residents of 2014 - and is more heavily focused on the sophisticated battle gear of tomorrow than the early titles. It's also a massive graphical leap over its predecessors,
Originally posted on May 22, 2007 Months before the 2007 Electronic Entertainment Expo, Sony Computer Entertainment of America flew a small army of journalists down to its headquarters in San Diego for its Gamer's Day, a pre-E3 sneak peek at games set to arrive on its PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2 and PSP platforms. Featuring dozens of games from Sony and third-party publishers, several of which were unveiled and/or made playable for the first time, the event was a staggering look at a swarm
This isnt so much a sequel as a careful reiteration of the first Tom Clancys Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter game. Theyve honed the template by adding some new visuals - lighting effects, convincing smoke, that sort of thing - and theyve tweaked the interface. But essentially the Sweden-based development team, Grin, has delivered the same fancy-looking tactical shooter as before. This is a game where taking things slowly is the key to success. Youre faced with large tracts of complex urban
Will the PC version of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 be much better than its 360 predecessor, or will it be a first-person version of the same game with a few new maps, multiplayer modes, and a grittier look? Either way, we're not likely to be disappointed considering how much fun the 360 version was. But now you can see for yourself, as publisher, Ubisoft has released the single player demo, featuring the game's first map, Search and Destroy. You can click here for a list of
Developer Grin is back to saturate our eyes and ears with GRAW 2 on PC in a second video developer diary, which you can view below (you can see the first video dev diary here). In this new diary installment - which runs for three minutes - members of the development team discuss the main objectives with the game, level design and the sequel's tactical element. Of course, all the commentary is backed up with gameplay. GRAW 2 on PC should be with us on June 29. Although sharing an identical
Just as the original Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter on PC received an almost total redesign in the step from Xbox 360, so will GRAW2 be boosted with super-tactical features. As the video below shows, you'll be able to pick your insertion point for each mission, then directly command your troops from the tactical map, for clean terrorist mop-ups. It's so different, in fact, that it's almost worth 360 gamers with PCs hunting it out, especially with the brand new PC-exclusive multiplayer mode,
Most shooter games just hand you a gun and yell, "Go!" But not GRAW 2. The Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter series gives you options when it comes to multiplayer. You want a gun? Well, which one?
There really isnt an easy way to win at good old Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2. Theres no single tactic that works every time, or any one strategy that will help you to blitz your opponents on each map and mode. Its a game that rewards experience, a sharp eye and a quick trigger finger. However, by knowing how to play each level, you can give yourself the edge, and on the battlefield, this is what makes the difference between the first casualty and the last man standing. Wanna go deeper?
Those hankering for a bit of GRAW this morning can look forward to an explosion of classic multiplayer maps arriving on Xbox Live Marketplace today. The maps, which work in every multiplayer mode, are pulled from Ghost Recon 2, Summit Strike and the original Advanced Warfighter, having been given a complete visual makeover for GRAW 2 - though we're sure series veterans will have no trouble recognizing
Despite its liberal use of Tom Clancy's name, it wasn't GRAW 2's story or the single-player campaign that made it such a success on the 360, it was the big-ass bag of multiplayer modes the game brought with it. That's why we were excited to sample two new multiplayer modes - Team Deathmatch and Recon vs Assault - when we infiltrated the closed multiplayer beta. Keep in mind that these two modes are likely just the tip of the iceberg. GRAW 2 for the PC won't be a doppelganger of its 360 brother
PC gamers itching for Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2's deployment at the end of the month, go grab a hanky. Ubisoft's latest release schedule has GRAW 2 PC down as a June release - on the 30th of that month, in
In the world of console shooters, two player co-op is sooo 2001. Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2's sixteen player missions rewrite the book on cooperative gameplay. Remember, we're talking about the console world here, so PC geeks should STFU and go back to playing Battlefield. Still with us? Good. Here's the intel on GRAW 2 's co-op
Juárez Mayor Héctor Murguía has condemned Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 which is set in El Paso and Juárez, reports the El Paso Times. Ubisoft's tactical shooter launched last Thursday for Xbox 360, which features fictional battles between the US Ghosts and Mexican rebels. Keyword there being "fictional." But the Mayor of Juárez (one of the locations featured in the game) isn't
