Where the first console port of Ghost Recon was considered awkward because of its original design as a PC game, the second offering in the Tom Clancy series, Ghost Recon 2, has been designed specifically with console gaming in mind, and marks a notable improvement over its predecessor.

Based upon an epic war between China and North Korea, this latest Tom Clancy game pits players as the leader of an elite military squad named Ghost, as they struggle to safeguard to Chinese/North Korean border and keep the raging conflict under control.

Bigger and better than the first instalment, Ghost Recon 2 boasts a great number of in-depth missions that are made even more convincing with the help of dynamic lighting, multi-texturing and the 'rag doll' physics of the Havok 2 game engine.

Leading a fresh team of operatives into the delicate world of tactical espionage, you job is made easier by an intuitive interface that allows you to issue accurate commands to your squad members. You can yell orders as you see fit, or you can use hand signals should your mission require the use of stealth tactics.

Just as vulnerable as the soldier leading them, each member of your team will grow and change as the story unfolds. They have their own special abilities and even unique personalities, helping to bring a greater sense of realism to the proceedings.

And making a massive game even bigger is online play. Via that little service known as the Internet, up to 16 of you can partake in a mixture of multi-player modes that include both competitive and co-operative playing arenas.

We can't deny that Ghost Recon 2 is a better game than Ghost Recon, and the refined control method only stands to reinforce this fact. Together with all of the above, Red Storm's latest venture is perhaps its best yet.
