whre the bloody hell r you? GRW

I'm a balancer too - still working on my GR campaign in A3

I got GRW on Xbox, as I like to plonk myself on the couch, turn up the home theatre and play that way. But I'm trying to get a second hand key from all the people that bought Nvidia 1070/80 cards for PC also

Don't you worry, I will. I played an hour of Wildlands but I think I'd rather play OGR!

Haha you guys.

My next target is doing either the Desert Siege campaign, Island Thunder campaign or the Hero's Unleashed version of the original campaign. Or all three!

MISSION 11 - Dream Knife

OBJECTIVES

1. Secure an entrance
2. Rescue NATO PoWs
3. Go to extraction zone
4. Rescue Moroshkin

OVERVIEW

All mission objectives completed. Nice to have a slower paced mission after the last few.
Great fun mission. Made some good use of A. Galinsky as a sniper. The SVD is devastating! I've unlocked another specialist sniper, hoping for a specialist demo, but I can't remember if there are any left!?

AFTER-ACTION

-Alpha squad-

Susan Grey – RIFLEMAN [SPECIALIST]
Nigel Tunney - DEMO [SPECIALIST]

-Bravo squad-

Astra Galinsky - SNIPER [SPECIALIST] 
Linda Cohen - RIFLEMAN [SPECIALIST]

Just finished watching your stone bell playthru, good stuff.. tough break losing a guy but that's better than having Nato casualties. Great series so far, personally I'd like to see the original expansions after the OGR playthru. If you do a HU playthru right away I feel that it would render the Vanilla expansions obsolete, due to the overhaul on enemy AI in HU.

MISSION 12 - Ivory Horn

OBJECTIVES

1. Plant demo in sub pen 51
2. Plant demo in sub pen 52
3. Get to extraction zone
4. Plant demo in fuel depo

OVERVIEW

That was intense. Alpha squad completely wounded, but no KIA's. My only demo N. Tunney received a couple of hits, so did S. Grey. I'm going to have to leave N. Tunney in for mission 13, as I need demo charges.
The MP5 is one of my all time favourite SMGs. Except in this game. You'll see just as S. Grey is hit, I return fire, the shots land on the tango, but he doesn't drop! My heart was beating fast!

I was also impressed with A. Galinsky. Mostly controlled by AI, she took out quite a few tangos from her sniping position.

I decided to end the mission by clearing all enemies. I knew once I planted the last charge, another group of enemy soldiers would charge and I couldn't afford the pressure.

One of my favourite missions in the OGR campaign!

AFTER-ACTION

-Alpha squad-

Susan Grey – RIFLEMAN [SPECIALIST] [WOUNDED]
Nigel Tunney - DEMO [SPECIALIST] [WOUNDED]

-Bravo squad-

Astra Galinsky - SNIPER [SPECIALIST] 
Linda Cohen - RIFLEMAN [SPECIALIST]

Between 5m:20s --> 7m:10s is basically where I almost had to change my jocks!

MISSION 13 - Arctic Sun

OBJECTIVES

1. Secure control tower
2. Destroy S37 Berkut
3. Destroy KA-50 Hokum

Another great OGR mission. All a success and no injuries or KIA's. I really need to rest out Tunney, but I won't be able to now. I need him for the next mission (armour) and final mission. Going to get really tough now.

Rested out Susan Grey – RIFLEMAN [SPECIALIST] and introduced Scott Ibrahim - SNIPER [SPECIALIST] for this mission.

I've been busy today (Lazy day playing GR!)

Mission 14 and 15 complete. Challenge a success.

Mission 14 and 15 overviews and videos incoming, with some closing notes.

This was so much fun.

MISSION 14 - Willow Bow

OBJECTIVES

1. Take north pass
2. Take south pass
3. take top of the hill
4. Neutralise Russian camp

OVERVIEW

I tell you what, the last soldier in the Russian camp had me on edge. Couldn't even seem him, taken out my A. Galinsky.
Nicely executed mission, even with N. Tunney limping away. I actually could have sit him out. Forgot that there was actually no enemy armour. 

Well, here we go. Final mission Ghosts. Let's do this!

AFTER-ACTION

-Alpha squad-

Scott Ibrahim - SNIPER [SPECIALIST]
Nigel Tunney - DEMO [SPECIALIST] [STILL WOUNDED]

-Bravo squad-

Astra Galinsky - SNIPER [SPECIALIST] 
Linda Cohen - RIFLEMAN [SPECIALIST]

MISSION 15 - White Razor

OBJECTIVES

1. Relieve pinned down troops
2. Take Nikolskaya Tower
3. Take Spasskaya Tower
4. Avoid Civilian casualties

OVERVIEW

Mission complete. And that's a wrap.
That's probably my best play-through of this mission and campaign overall.

N. Tunney has been my best solider, racking up all of the medals! Scary parts here with 3 tanks to take out and only 1 injured DEMO.

Time to go home Ghosts.

AFTER-ACTION

-Alpha squad-

Scott Ibrahim - SNIPER [SPECIALIST]
Nigel Tunney - DEMO [SPECIALIST] [STILL WOUNDED]

-Bravo squad-

CAMPAIGN COMPLETE
Wow what a fun ride that was. I play this campaign at least once a year. This was the most fun I've had. Usually, I use quick saves/loads to redo parts where I get killed or lose soldiers. This was so much more fun.

There is a reason I continue to come back to this game and it's because that after 15+ years, in my eyes, this game still holds up. 

Yes the graphics and overall presentation is dated, but the game play has not been beaten. The tension, the difficulty, the actual feeling of loss when a friendly is KIA. Nothing has even come close.

This game is all about tactics, taking it slow, having your finger on the trigger and maintaining situational awareness at all times.

It was a shame none of the starting line-up survived, but I did stick to my original challenge.

OVERALL CASUALTIES/WOUNDED
Richard Weinstein – DEMO [KIA - Mission 01]
Gilbert Bean – SNIPER [WOUNDED - Mission 01]
Chris Corum – RIFLEMAN [KIA - Mission 03]
John Cosner – RIFLEMAN [KIA - Mission 05]
Dennis Martin – DEMO [KIA - Mission 05]
Brian Duan – SNIPER [KIA - Mission 05]
Jack Stone - SNIPER [SPECIALIST] [KIA - Mission 08]
Klaus Henkel - DEMO [SPECIALIST] [KIA - Mission 08]
Gilbert Bean – SNIPER [KIA - Mission 09]
Will Jacobs - RIFLEMAN [SPECIALIST] [KIA - Mission 09]
Susan Grey – RIFLEMAN [SPECIALIST] [WOUNDED - Mission 12]
Nigel Tunney - DEMO [SPECIALIST] [WOUNDED - Mission 12]

FAVOURITE MAP
Mission 12 - Ivory Horn

BEST PLAY
The take-down of 3 tangos in Mission 15 - White Razor (Skip to 3m:26s)

BEST SOLIDER
Nigel Tunney (For staying alive so long)
...also Astra Galinsky (Mainly the AI controlled sniper cover)

 

 

I'm going to give Wildlands some play now. 
But I'll be back with the Desert Siege, followed by Island Thunder. 
Til then.
Cheers.
