Game Information:

Havana, 2009. Castro is dead, and Cuba reels from a power vacuum. The Ghosts -- the elite team of U.S. Army Green Berets familiar to fans of the Ghost Recon series -- are deployed to halt a drug-funded warlord from sabotaging the island republic's first free elections in decades. Players compete in eight single-player missions deep in the jungles of Cuba as well as five desert missions. Jungle Storm features split-screen and online multiplayer action with 12 multiplayer maps (four fan-favorites from the original Ghost Recon). Online leaderboards let players match their skills with others thanks to real-time stats and skills tracking from battles and tournaments.

 

The original Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon came out for both the PC, Xbox, and PS2. This was followed up on the PC and Xbox with the expansion pack, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Island Thunder, which contained eight missions and featured 16-player online matches for the Xbox version. With Jungle Storm, the series makes its way back onto the PS2 and adds an expansion pack of eight missions onto the Island Thunder missions. It also brings the series to PS2 online for the first time. Sadly, the large numbers aren't there and only six people can play against each other.

 

These new missions are a continuation of the Island Thunder missions in terms of the Cuban storyline, but that's the only connection within the game itself. In Jungle Storm, there are both sets of eight missions each, but progress in either one has no relation to the other. By completing levels, characters can gain new attributes, but these can only be seen in their own section. Instead of a complete game, the overall feeling is that of a compilation. Each section feels too short to be a complete game and without a continuation throughout the both sets of missions there's a lack of an overall adventure. There are plenty of chances to take down the enemies like there's no tomorrow with a steady stream of combat, but the missions stand alone and have little relation to each other. Think of Jungle Storm as a double expansion pack and you're right on the money.
