Yes boys, I played tom clancy's way before I became a Frag Doll, so believe me when I tell you GR2 is unbelievable. As my platform preference is xbox, enough said that this game was built specifically for my baby. The system upgrade is tremendous and I only wish more people got to demo it so you wouldnt have to take my word for it. From choosing which viewing mode, to rolling on the ground, and a new kit based on the latest optical military technology- this game will rock your socks. Between Halo 2 and this game dont plan on seeing me unless you are playing...

You have played more of the game through than I have. I have played one mission through a few times, but in the small amount of time I had with it at PAX, I can truly say I am looking forward to getting on this game. I can't wait to see the multiplayer.
I like the addition of the "over the shoulder" view, especially since you now have a choice. Pretty rad - and two female ghosts this time!

Yeah. I've been playing some SOCOM II to try to practice up for it a little, and if Ghost Recon 2 is the "SOCOM II Killer" like everyone says, it's got to be good. I only played it for a little while at PAX, but what I saw makes me pretty optimistic.

yup, after demoing it so many times at PAX, i can't wait to see where the game goes. i dig the "over the shoulder" view too (since i'm getting used to it in socom II) and i'm always down with female avatars. yay!

Hi all,

I'm not much into the tactical gameplay of Ghost Recon, but if what you ladies are saying about GR2...is it really that good? Besides how is the solo campaign...is it a lot of tactical manuevering to get your teammates where you want them to be?

If it's that good then I might just buy it when it comes out. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Yes it is that good, to be honest I didnt play much of GRIT, simply because how slow it was. The system upgrade makes movement closer to my beloved R63, yet it is still GR aiming and postions- a perfect combination. Since the XBOX version is buils specifically for the xbox, they were able to push the graphics to the limit. It looks almost like pc quaility. You will have to see for yourself!

Interesting... being a fan of Tom Clancy since Ghost Recon on PC I am a little more than willing to gather all the info I can get my greedy little hands on. In all my stubbornness I will focus my efforts on sniping... because I have the thickest skull known to man (right now playing the heck out of Rainbow Six 3:Black Arrow and I carry the Dragunov EVERYWHERE, EVERY MAP... so yea...) when it comes to being a sniper. If you would be so kind as to point me to the nearest info I would be very greatful.

This is a nice site, maybe you guys will flip-flop the general assumption that video games are for the anti-social. It couldn't be more opposite, me and my old hockey friends from high school are still connected today because we all get together and lan halo for some good party action.

Anyways, so whats the deal with this new ghost recon? It plays more like SOCOM? I was a huge fan of GR back when it was on the pc, but I never really got into the ones on XBOX because they didn't have that same feel. But heck, if the new one is going to take some cues from S2, that would be great! I happen to be a HUGE S2 fan ... :O

No it doesnt play like socom lol. It is still GR, only with an ugraded engine built specifically for each platform. The only reason you are hearing "socom" is that they added a 3rd person view feature which you can choose IF you dont want to be in 1st person. As Socom players like 3rd person veiw, this will be a big assest for them.

I liked GR, look forward to GR2, but I have a wee bit of a bias 'cuz all my friends play the faster PC FPS's, and tend to lean towards those.

My biggest question with GR2 is: Will there be an option to have 2 people online from the same Xbox like MechAssault or Crimson Skies? (Plus any info on other games with that feature would be appreciated.)

OMG, i forgot to tell you guys the best part and that reminds me!!!!!

You can use split screen over LIVE. So 4 people on one Xbox and one TV can log onto LIVE (under 1 account) and jump into a session. this is one of the best features of the game as now you can play with all your buddies!

10-26-2004, 12:08 PM
Man now I may have to buy an even bigger TV so I can see what I'm doing. 32" is great alone, split screen with 2 people is alright, but run that up to 4. Might as well consider me blind. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

What kind of projector (make and model) did you get Valkyrie? I may have to pick one of those up to handle it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yea, Brookelyn, just remember who saved your *** in SCPT against the guys we cant talk about yet...

As far as GR2 might go, you DID play GRIT for a year and I did not- however I am still willing to take that bet. Just remember what happened when we did this in R63, lol! Remember, on Training? For all you guys that dont know we had a contest to see who could kill each other the most on oppisite windows across the map and all we did was exchange kills every time and tied evenly after 20 a piece! We then stopped lol!

Sounds like it's time for you to setup a streaming media server for this event. Or, if you have a semi decent web camera, you could focus it in on the gameplay and have the live feed going directly to a website for all to see. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Might be a little choppy for those watching online, but, it'll still give a good show.

Dude -- I have not seen such aggressive NPCs in a game in a while. If you don't snipe them off before they see you, plan on getting charged. This is a high action game.

That would a great event to see...Kat against Valk. I wouldn't even know who to root for

Vision2279
10-27-2004, 10:08 AM
Now what would be really cool, to take this live broadcast a little further, is if during the various tourney's the FragDolls get into, if Ubi could somehow manage to setup a live broadcast of each girl playing right on their website so that those of us who are unable to attend could root for the girls from afar as we watch them wipe the floor with their opponents.

Personally, I don't think it could get any sweeter then that. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'm sure a lot of people would watch it as well. Now, we just need to get a hold of the powers that be. Perhaps a message from the fans would have a larger impact in addition to a request from the FragDolls.

Actually i know they had footage from the PAX tourny on R63:BA and I have asked that they upload it for us. They seemed to like the idea, so hopefully you will get to see us in action on camera!

I know Halo 2 comes out soon and then that will become the main focus, but I know I'd like a chance to get to play with or against you on R63:BA before H2 comes out.

Most likely, I will be on again tonight, probably starting around 5:00 PM CST. So let me know when you'll be on.

I'm thinking about...I probably will get the H2 headset first.

Vision2279
10-28-2004, 06:56 AM
Just to give you a warning now, cause I did purchase that controller, while it does have a nice range and has a decent battery life on it, it has one major downfall. Instead of the Memory Cards, Headset, or other accessories plugging directly into the controller, they plug into the wireless base that connects to the X-Box.

The cable on the thing is maybe 2 feet long if your lucky. So add your H2 headset in there with it's 4 foot cable and at most you'll be sitting 6 feet away from your Xbox.

So while it may be a decent idea, they either need to develop an extension cable for it, or redesign the controller to hold the memory cards and headset.

For the time being, I'd say save your money and buy the headset first.
