Horrible

OS Trouble

This was strictly a problem of the system used. I have the WII sure-shot riffle and that should have made my day. When I fired it was one of the soldiers on the screen that shot instead of me, and the graphics weren't realistic. Try it on XBOX instead

It's too tough to be a Ghost

Being a member of Ghost Squad isn’t easy. Sure, you can go out and kill a bunch of enemies, but you are expected to pull off some stealth maneuvers to avoid enemy detection.
In Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon, you play as a soldier in Ghost Squad and it’s up to you and a second player (human or AI) to blast enemies with several types of weapons (most likely a machine gun). But you can hide from enemy fire.
If you’ve played Time Crisis or Transformers: Cybertron Adventures, then you know what to expect from this game. Except this game also tosses in several Stealth Missions - which is where I find major headaches.
In the Stealth Missions, you and your partner have to eliminate all of the soldiers before one of them fires up a flare. It starts off easy enough with three soldiers, but when you get to the later stages and have to take out five or six of them, then the game gets really tough (at least for me; I’m stuck on the fourth mission)
Otherwise, this game would be a basic shoot ‘em up that will delight fans of rail shooters. There is even an arcade mode where you can play to see who gets the most points in a certain level - but you have to get past that level in story mode before you can play it in arcade mode.
If you are a big fan of this type of game, then I say it’s worth a rent, but the annoying Stealth Missions makes Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon a must not play game for me. SKIP IT.
