I am a huge fan of the Tom Clancy series, and I can't wait for Ghost Recon 3 to come out. But I have one problem; why in Dante's 8 circles of Hell is the game set in Mexico?
What I like about the Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon, and Splinter Cell (besides being kickass games) is that their plots are very convincing and grounded in reality. Whenever I play them, I feel like the events in the game could happen in the near future or even in a few days.
I don't know the story of Ghost Recon 3, but the fact that it takes place in Mexico is absurd. Save for perhapes the Minutemen along the border getting overzealous, I don't see how anything could send the US and Mexico into war with each other in the near future.
And it's not like we've run out of potential hotspots to put the game in either. They could set the game in Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, or even Venezuala and it would be extremely realistic and compelling. But Mexico ?
