Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 is the newest game to join the Xbox One backwards compatibility list Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb has announced. So whether you own the digital or physical version of this 2007 Xbox 360 game, you can play it on Xbox One.
You don't have to buy the game if you subscribe to Xbox Live Gold and are willing to wait a few weeks. Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 has been announced as one of the four titles offered through Games With Gold in April 2019. So with Xbox Live Gold, you'll be able to download Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 for free April 16 - 30.
Like its predecessor, Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 puts an emphasis on stealth and tactical decision making in firefights. The game's story takes place over a 72-hour period, focusing on a series of conflicts that occur along the US and Mexico border. Like the rest of the Ghost Recon franchise, you play as a part of an elite special forces US group that responds to international threats around the globe, operating in complete secrecy with a mixture of traditional weapons and advanced, futuristic tech.
In our Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 review, we gave the game a 8.7/10, writing, "There's such a wealth of content in the multiplayer suite that it alone makes GRAW2 an easy purchase for multiplayer fans. If the original game is any indication, there's going to be a large following for GRAW2 for a long time, which makes this a safe investment. The flip side to this is that if you don't have Xbox Live, then GRAW2 is an iffier proposition. The single-player game is fun, but its brevity is certainly an issue. Still, if you're a fan of modern combat, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 makes a compelling case for a game that you have to play."
The story of the Ghosts continues in the franchise's most recent game, Ghost Recon: Wildlands, which is available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. If you're looking for more classic games to play, check out our list of favorites.
