Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter (GRAW) was supposed to be released on launch day Nov. 22. But once you pop this game into your drive, you'll soon see the "Advanced" part of GRAW. This and Fight Night 3 are the first games to feel as good as they look. GRAW takes place in Mexico in the not-so-distant future, with the expected Clancy brand story. What makes this game "Advanced" is the gameplay. GRAW introduces the Crosscom, a nift little camera that is on the helmets of all your fellow ghosts including you, and it allows you to call in the cavlry, like Bradley tanks and Apachies. The Flaws? Sometimes your ghosts act a little stupid, like going out of cover and shooting you in the back on accident. And the occasional glitch when you peek out of a corner you may see your arms dissapear, but serious enough to not recomend this game. Rent it TODAY!
Put simply, this game plays and looks amazing. Being a infantry Marine, I found the mechanics and strategies that worked in real life worked very well in the game also, making for a very realistic experience. The online is also great, but expect to get your butt handed to you if you purchased/rented the game late. Online has a very Counter-Strike feel to it. The only negative about this game is that I beat it in under 10 hours on both difficutly levels. I just wanted more
