Gameplay - 10/10
The gameplay is just awesome. Better than the other GR games IMO. When running you can press the left analog stick in for a few seconds to do a dive, if you press it quickly you slide on your knees. You can stick to walls and peer around corners to shoot at enemies if you don't want to stand in the open. On some missions you get helicopter support, tank support, and apc support and you can send them in to attack the enemy if you're outnumbered. You also sometimes get a drone that you can send ahead to spot enemies. There's a lot of guns to choose from and you can even pick them up off of dead enemies. The story is also pretty good for a shooter game. You start out on a training mission in Mexico City to learn the controls, and eventually you have to rescue the Mexican president and stop the Mexican rebels from overthrowing the government.
Graphics - 10/10
The graphics are probably some of the best I've seen in a game. The lighting is great, the textures for the ghost team are great, there's reflections off of every building you see, muzzle flash from your gun, heat waves, the draw distance is also good and you can see all the way across town.
Sound - 10/10
I hate games where you throw a grenade and it makes this little pop. Not here, in this game the explosions kick ass, really loud like the way they should be. Sometimes in a firefight the crossfire hits a car and the alarm goes off, you can even hear flies if you're standing next to a trashcan. With the guns, the sounds are all superb and sound realistic to real life.
Controls - 10/10
The controls are kind of a pain in the ass at first but I found within 20 or so minutes within the game they worked out fine for me. It takes a little while to get used to because there's a bunch of controls and some buttons have more than one use for them.
Replay Value - 10/10
A lot of replay value for this game. First there's the SP mode, then Multiplayer where you can create games for 10 or so maps on different game modes. Lots of guns to choose from, and you can also customize your character in Multiplayer. Also up to 16 players can join a game but you can set it lower too.
Rent or Buy
Must buy for any fan of Ghost Recon or shooter games.
