Ghost Recon 2

A bunch of us bought Ghost Recon 2 for XBox today and played online. The big draw for this game was the multiplayer online cooperative modes. Many other games allow 2-4 people to play through game missions cooperatively (Halo, Halo2, BruteForce), but as far as we can tell, this is the first that lets you cooperate over the internet. CounterStrike theoretically has this feature, but the missions, bots and graphics aren't nearly as detailed. This game played extremely well online in a small group. We played with between 2 and 5 people, and only won one of about 8 maps we played. CounterStrike has terrible bot leveling, so it's difficult to set up a good game unless there are 6-8 people playing. I found this game more interesting to play online than CounterStrike, Halo2 or Star Wars: Battlefront (although frying Ewoks and Gungans with an AT-ST is pretty sweet).

Oh that this game is pretty fun. This has really been a good year for Xbox Live. And a bad year for my pocket book. Coming soon... Mech Assault 2.
