Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm
3.5 Star Review  GameZone - Apr 1, 2004

When Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Island Thunder was released for the Xbox, the PlayStation 2 crowd felt left out. While the PS2 did get the original Ghost Recon, gamers and fans of the PC great have found nothing but disappointment. For one thing, it lacked total immersion and its impressive graphics. Yet the most important element that was overlooked was the online features. Let’s face it, Ghost Recon is a great single player game but who doesn’t fancy several multiplayer matches with gamers from all over? So it was with great pleasure to find that Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm not only brings us new campaigns along with Island Thunder’s many missions but also an online multiplayer mode.

Not bad at all
3 Star Review   By member crosscountry123456 - Aug 22, 2006   

Strengths: usb headset in solo playing

Weakness: simple concept and frustrating

This game tries something few games before it has done in a tactical shooter; it incorporates the usb logitech headset into the solo game. Using the headset makes it a little frustrating though, when it can't understand your voice at the worst possible times. Also this game will not take long to beat so don't spend too much money on it (don't spend more than $15) The graphics are not as frustrating as others have claimed unless you're very picky about insane XBox 360 graphics.

Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm
3 Star Review   By member Jammerdez1 - May 31, 2006   

Strengths: Follow-up to the previous title that contains 16 more missions.

Weakness: Graphics, game is pretty easy.

The good thing about this game is that it provides a follow-up to the story provided in the previous game. There are 16 more missions that you can play that will help wrap up the story. However, because this is more of a follow-up than an individual game, it has 2 immediate drawbacks. 1- It is fairly short and seems more like a compilation of levels than an actual game. 2- The story takes a little figuring out if you haven't played the previous installment. On top of those 2 things, the game itself also suffers from poor graphics and overall it is just too easy to beat 90% of the levels. Most are outdoors on fields where all you do is snipe the enemy long before they ever see you. Where's the fun in that?

More Ghost Recon
3 Star Review   By member keelie - Apr 18, 2006   

Strengths: More Ghost Recon goodness

Weakness: Frustrating and difficult gameplay

Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm is a decent game in the Ghost Recon series. It is not as fun as the earlier work because the developer was trying to make it too tactical and realistic that it becomes frustrating at times to play, because you and your team can lose pretty suddenly without knowing why. If the game was designed as a game rather than a tactical simulator, it would have become a much more fun and entertaining game.

A fun game
3 Star Review   By member eau697 - Apr 17, 2006   

Strengths: fun yet realistic

Weakness: Difficult to play at times

As the previous reviewer says it is love it or hate it type of game. I must say that I like this game but not above other similar games like the SOCOM series. The game has very good graphics. It is difficult to play because it's trying to be realistic and make it frustrating like in the real situation. Nevertheless, it is a fun game and I would at least give it a 3 star.

very tactical... both good and bad
2 Star Review   By member Warner1281 - Aug 22, 2005   

Strengths: Fun game for anyone who enjoyed the previous games in the series

Weakness: Very tactical and detail oriented game. Very frustrating

Jungle Storm is one of those games that you'll either love or you'll hate. Let me start off by saying that I hated it. The game is based upon controlling a squad of guys in an attempt to save the free world one bad guy at a time. Unfortunately, because the game tries to be so realistic, one or two shots and you're dead. Sounds great, but it gets very frustrating very fast. There are too many bad guys that hide and appear at the last second and destroy half your team before you even know where to shoot. I found myself doing the same levels over and over and OVER again because of this. Also, the graphics were pretty mundane compared to the PS2 capabilities and the framerate suffers a lot. Definately not worth it to me. On the other hand, if you're someone that truly enjoys the very detail oriented, highly tactical type games (Basically the entire Tom Clancy series) then you'll probably be drooling all over this game. So like I said... you'll either love it or hate it.
