In my quest to briefly review and grade everything I play or do – I present to you a personal favorite, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon.
Year Released: 2002 (For PlayStation 2)
Developer: Red Storm Entertainment
Publisher: Ubi Soft
System(s): PlayStation 2 / GameCube / Xbox / Windows / MAC OS
Type of First Person Shooter: Military/Tactical
Problem protagonist is preventing: Those Damn Russians from taking over all of Eastern Europe again.
The only Tom Clancy series to NOT actually be based on any of his works.
Starts off in: Russian/Georgian Border
Ends up in: Moscow, Russia
Protagonists: The Ghosts. An ultra elite military faction of specialists and snipers.
Ghost Recon is a fantastic blend of first person shooter and military strategy. You get assigned two teams which you can freely switch between to perform separate mission objectives or flush out entrenched enemies. The AI is pretty reckless and dumb but it’s easy to forgive given how fun the game is.
Likelihood of plot happening: it did 20/20
