Games | Ghost Recon 2 | Overview
Years of famine and neglect have brought devastation to the North Korean population.
Faced with an unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe, the North Korean government
is pressured to open up to outside assistance, and to curb military spending.
The North Korean military reacts violently to this new policy, seeing their
power peddled away by bureaucrats. They unite behind the charismatic General
Jung, who announces that the "traitors and capitalists" have no right
to barter away "the birthright of the North Korean people." Jung’s
forces quickly wipe out other splinter factions of the military and mobilize
North Korea’s vast army of reserves. Before long, Jung is the supreme
authority in North Korea.
The North Korean government, now a mouthpiece for Jung, tries to disguise the
facts, but satellite reconnaissance photos show the truth. As Jung consolidates
his power, the situation grows ever more unstable.
Faced with the spectre of what Jung might do with North Korea's nuclear arsenal,
and fearful that this rogue military leader will embroil his neighbors in a
larger conflict, the regional powers demand that something be done.
While they remain carefully neutral, other nations - the US, France, Britain,
Germany and more - send an expeditionary force. Its mission is simple: to devastate
General Jung's war machine before his ambition embroils the entire region -
and maybe the world - in a nuclear war.
- Exclusive game design for the Xbox: Storyline, level design, and cinematic
sequences will be unique to the Xbox. Developed by Red Storm Entertainment,
the Xbox version is built from the ground up for the Xbox to push the system
to its limits. This version acts as a sequel to the PS2 version (which is
set in 2007).
Complete Immersion in the War of Tomorrow: Players will utilize the most high-tech,
advanced weapons and gadgets to defeat the smartest, deadliest A.I. yet in
this epic struggle. Intense battle sequences, countless enemies, and a gritty
story power the campaigns.
- New Graphic and Physics Technology: Real-life East Asian environments are
rendered in stunning detail. Plus, Ghost Recon 2 features next-generation
technology such as dynamic lighting, multi-texturing, and normal mapping.
The new Havok 2 physics engine also provides realistic effects for destructible
objects, moving vehicles, ragdoll physics and spectacular special effects.
- Lead a Brand New Team of Special Forces: Interact with and fight alongside
new characters to the Ghost Recon world – each with his or her own look,
personality, and specialization. As the Ghost leader, control your squad via
voice commands and a new, one click interface.
- All-New Camera Angle Fully Immerses You in the War: Ghost Recon 2 unveils
a brand-new camera view to the Ghost Recon world. The OTS (over-the-shoulder)
view allows players to see their characters and weapons, and watch them react
to surrounding mortar, gunfire, and airstrikes. Players can also communicate
with teammates via hand signals to silently trap enemies.
