Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter was one of the first games I bought on the 360 that truly felt like a next-gen experience. The sun-baked and exposed cities of Mexico, overrun with rebels highlighted with glowing red diamonds. If you missed out on this game, or would like to relive it, then why not pick it up from ShopTo for just £1.84 on the PC?
It's a smashing price, and on the PC you'll get the best performance out of it. It's a fairly dated game on the 360 and PS3, but on a good rig, I don't doubt you'll be able to pump out some decent results. Averaging an 80 on MetaCritic, critics cited the improved AI and authentic sense of realism as highlights, lamenting the short campaign and shallow squad-commands.
It's 2013, and there's an uprising bubbling in Mexico City. The U.S. army decides to send its most elite troops into this war-zone, the 'Ghosts'. Equipped with the most cutting-edge technology, like Cross-Com and guns that can shoot around walls, the Ghosts infiltrate Mexico, crawling with hostile infantry, and set about destabilising the new regime and returning law and order to the city.
The campaign is fun, but largely forgettable. It's the multiplayer where Advanced Warfighter succeeds. A burgeoning community still plays it to this day, thanks to the finely balanced weapons and class-system. It's a team-focused game where co-operation is key. Co-ordinate your attack, support and help teammates in trouble. It's a tense but very rewarding experience.
