unwritt3n's Ghost Recon: Island Thunder campaign play-through (2019)

Recommended Posts

It's been too long, I'm returning to finish what I started!

Some of you might remember, but back in 2017 I decided to do something different with my my annual Ghost Recon campaign play-through.

One, I decided to record it and two, I decided to play it differently by using the same soldiers throughout the whole campaign. No quick saves and a KIA is permanent. The only soldiers I could introduce were any unlocked specialist.

My last video was in March 2017, where I finished the Desert Siege campaign. Now after all this time, I started playing again, this time I'm tackling Island Thunder!

My previous entries:

Ghost Recon

Desert Siege

I just finished Mission 01, and already I have a KIA. Uh oh. I have really slow internet (LOL Australia), so the video for mission 01 is currently uploading...

Now to finish the fight!

Here we go:

GHOST PLATOON (From the start)
-Alpha squad-
Wayne Hill - DEMO
Ed Long - SNIPER

-Bravo squad-
Omar Guerrero - RIFLEMAN
Jorge Martinez - DEMO

No quick saves or loads will be used.

MISSION 01 – WATCHFUL YEOMAN

OBJECTIVES
1. Seize Plantation Grounds
2. Secure First Package
3. Secure Second Package
X. No Team Casualties

OVERVIEW
So back to it after almost a year.
Mission was going well at the start, but unfortunatly the AI controlled Omar was hit and did not return fire as we opened up on two tangos just after retrieving package #2. Bit of a shame.
This mission is tense and quite difficult, the fog makes it hard to see enemies and you can be taken out from quite a distance.
I did have to use the AT to clear some rooms, as sometimes these require split-second reactions when clearing normally.
I seem to always lose teammates in the first mission. Hopefully things get better from here...

AFTER-ACTION
-Alpha squad-
Wayne Hill - DEMO
Ed Long - SNIPER

-Bravo squad-
Omar Guerrero - RIFLEMAN [DEAD]
Jorge Martinez - DEMO

I love this. It'd be really cool with commentary added. Used to get all nerdy and do like this back in the day. You play online at all? We do co-op and are trying to find people who still love this great old game.

I'm always down for some coop. Just hard to find people still playing the original.

Man, it'd be awesome to do this all over again in coop. Once you are KIA, you're out! See if we can get through all three campaigns, or see how far we get.
