...Ghost Recon 2: Summit Strike on Xbox, bearing in mind I like the 2 Brothers in Arms games, and Call of Duty 1 on Mac? EG gave it a good review and it's about a fiver on ebay, should I give it a go? I fancy some shooting action after all the driving and collecting I've been doing lately.

Thanking you very very muchly in advance kind gentlemen geeks.

Aye, probably. More action-ey than BiA and more strategy than CoD.

Very pretty, too.

Cool, I'll grab a copy of it soon-ish. In fact, I'll check with my brother as he may well have it. He loves killing :)

it's a fantastic little standalone even if you don't get the original too (which you should, and the DLC)

easily still one of the best LIVE games but quite satisfying in single player too

I'd be on single player only, I look forward to trying it out.

Right, got it for 1.99 plus 2 postage on ebay.

From a guy who also sells unclean socks to gay men.

Erm.

Xbox games or unclean socks for gays, where's the difference?

Am I right in remembering that the first one on the XBOX (released about 3-4 years ago I think) was absolutely dreadful?

The demo I played of it looked like an old PC game and didn't enamour me to it, let's say that.

That's why I was so surprised with all THIS LOT-

/Points accusingly at his friendslist

-were playing GR2 and telling me how great it was.

Which it was! o/

The first GR or the first GR2? Both are great but for different reasons (they're essentially entirely different games).

No you're not!

Didn't get great reviews and wasn't perfect, but was pretty good actually.

I've had GR, GR2 and GR2 SS, but didn't get GRAW as I'm only 'last gen' and this version of GRAW didn't get good reviews at all.

GR is one of the reasons I'm thinking of a 360!

Well it arrived and although I've only done the tutorial so far, it looks promising. In fact it looks superb, there really was plenty of life left in the old Xbox wasn't there.

I enjoyed Ghost Recon. Hated it at first but I soon realised it's all down to managing your squads effectively.

Scouting the enemy, setting up a base of fire to cover all angles and then assaulting.

Much slower paced than the following games.
