GRAW 2 takes everything that GRAW 1 did, and makes it five times better.

I found myself many the time throwing my controller in a fit of rage when my squadmates ran out in front of mine or the enemy's line of fire, and I'm happy to say GRAW 2 fixed that. Your squadmates not only seem smarter this time around, but really...pretty damn competent. When presented with a bad line of sight, one or two of them would move to a better position. When targets are spotted, they not only report how many but exactly where they were. Needless to say, my controller will suffer less this time around.
As good as the single player was , the multiplayer was so much more sweet. With 18 maps plus one exclusive map, a retooled respawn system, the incorporation of clans, and the ability to revive fallen teammates one of the best online experiences on the 360 just got better. Every map was different and innovative (besides Nowhere and Rocky Cove, which were practically remakes of last year), and the new shiny lighting looked just as good in multiplayer as it did in singleplayer. My only complaints about the game's great online mode was that the clan interface still seems to have some problems and I wish there was away to break off from reviving a teammate if it seemed like both of your lives were in danger, many the time I was being a good Samaritan when an opposing member came right in front of us and took us both out. But with those being my only complaints, I am very pleased with Ubisoft's new showing on Xbox Live.
As much as i love this game, it does not come with out some fault. With things like a few random freezes, bugs, and glitches it can distract from the experience, not to mention it feels like a glorified expansion at times, and the dialogue was uninspiringly bad (i.e. "I have no name...I'm a Ghost"). The story is pretty straight-forward and and kind of short too.
Overall this is a great improvement over last year's showing with a few minor setbacks I'd sy any Ghost Recon fan should own this. And for those who are new to Ghost Recon...I'd say you can go ahead and skip the first GRAW.
