Review

There you have it. Final score of 9.2!

"Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter is a next-generation game in the fullest sense, whether it's the loaded package of impressive graphics and special effects, the top-notch sound, or the tactically enhanced gameplay. Red Storm's four-plus months of extra time have served the game incredibly well and you can see the difference in the screenshots and you will feel it in the gameplay. It's still Ghost Recon, which is to say it's still a rather acquired taste in first/third-person shooters, but as the series goes, this one is easily the best one yet. You'll be impressed with the stunning single-player game, and when you're done, you'll finally get to play long sessions on Xbox Live with an online game that's fully equipped to deliver a next-gen package. My advice, get this game, or get thee to a nunnery!"

Haven't read it myself, I'm gonna do that right now ;)

They worked hard on this game, I am sure reading the threads and reviews is very important to them, and probably part of the celebration. I see Serellan is posting, so we'll see what he has to say. :)

FYI Serellan... I absolutley LOVED your mods for Rogue Spear. :)

Yep. It is a chance for the team to see what people (and the critics) think, and stop holding their breath. ;)

Thanks, glad you liked them.

I supose the other question would be did you pay Gamespot enough so they dont crap on your game? ;) Always seems to me no matter how good or bad a game is, their reviews have nothing to do with reality.

Please don't take that in a bad way... It was meant as a rip on gamespot, not you guys.

I'll say this... Heres to hopping you guys restore my faith in ubi after the lockdown fiasco!!

Is this fishing village in the background..... ;)

:rofl: Looks like it, doesn't it!

"Serellan" i want to thank you for all the hard work you and your team put in to this game :thumbsup: . You deserve that vacation :D

The team did all the work. I just write documents and have meetings. Well, maybe a bit more, but that is my main job. ;)

The amount of experience on this team, just in MP is amazing.

Jeff Wesevich, of GR fame, lead the sound group. Robbie Edwards, Producer of GR1 & GR2 Xbox, led the team. Jeff McGann, coming off of working as Lead Designer of Summit Strike, focused purely on MP UI, to give you the polished system you see today. Chase Jones, scripter on GR2, headed up the team of Co-Op Scripters, while Gary Stelmack, Lead Designer on GR1 & GR2, headed up MP scripting and systems design. We had THREE Stelmacks in total! THREE! And that is just the tip of the iceberg, be sure to look at the credits for lots of familiar faces, like David Hamm (Igor inventor), who polished the AI and (really), saved the drone in MP after my original (bad) design failed to be fun. Jason Snyder, the guy who saved Lone Wolf in GR2 returned to make the a lot of the customization possible. And that is without even mentioning the awesome art staff, including Pete Sekula, Brian Tate, and tons more folks, or the graphics and network engineers, led by Clark Gibson, who has worked on like every GR title made. Or all the testers, led by GR vet Prince Arrington.

And all that is just in MP. Not even talking about the SP folks. I can't begin to mention everyone's name.

Lots of names that aren't mine are the people that toiled to bring this title out. Over two hundred of them. There are probably around 400 man-years worth of work invested in this title.

What college courses do you have to take to be prepared to develop a gme like this one?

I need to know to plan for college. I want to make a career out of this and I have high hope and I know i'm going to make it.
