Ubisoft ranks as one of the best producers of military inspired first-person shooters. When Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter debuted, it was an enormous success, quickly becoming one of the 360's all-time top sellers, and one of Xbox Live's most played titles. Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 picks up the story where events from the original game led to a crisis that put the safety of the United States in the hands of the Ghosts.

It's the year 2014, and a civil war has broken out in Mexico between two powerful rivals, one group considered Mexican loyalists and the other a group of insurgent rebels. Now, these rebels are posing an imminent threat to the United States, and time is running out to find them. The elite team of Ghosts, led by Captain Scott Mitchell, has 72 hours and 1900 miles of border to cover to stop the rebels before they can cross into U.S. soil.

GRAW 2 looks awesome with new mission locations that take gamers from mountainous areas to the desert, and even into some urban warfare in the city of El Paso, Texas. Upgraded visuals really give a new sense of realism to the war torn cities and battles, while great looking explosions and smoke effects take the game up to the next level. To add another layer of tension and realism to the game, GRAW 2 operates on real-time day and night cycles coupled with weather that is constantly changing and forces gamers to be flexible and to bring their "A game" to each battle and mission.

Other improvements to the gameplay include A.I. upgrades for both enemies and team members. Enemies are smarter than ever, but so are fellow teammates who can now watch Captain Mitchell's back while giving out descriptive commands on enemy targeting and location. The Ghosts are armed with the best in "near-future" technology and Captain Mitchell has even more firepower under his command like the unmanned artillery MULE to provide cover and replenish arms on the battlefield, and the ability to call for lethal air strikes against enemy targets. Another added bonus is a new medic team member who can heal everyone on the team, including Captain Mitchell, which is more than handy during a deadly firestorm. GRAW 2 is an excellent sequel that fans of the series should definitely check out.
