I just picked up the original version of GR for Xbox a few days ago and me and my son are hooked.

I'm already a Tom Clancy fan as I've read all of his novels, and GR just adds to it.

Have some newbie questions for all you GR experts...

1)Xbox manual is very light on details regarding...this is more of a comment

*Specialists

*Medals & Campaign Ribbons

Q) Is there a more detailed Manual of GR for Xbox I can get my hands on?

2)Regarding Specialist Will Jacobs, we've completed M01 a number of times and have captured Papashvili and got him back to the Extraction point OK, but Will Jacobs is still not Unlocked???

I can't find him at all under my available Specialists? We've done both Campaigns and Quick Missions.

Q)Is this a glitch or did we do something wrong on M01? Again, we finished ALL mission tasks successfully.

2)While reviewing RECON section of this site, I see a more detailed description of Medals & Campaign Ribbons.

GR Manual for Xbox makes NO mention of these.

I do see medals assigned to individual soldiers after a mission. (Purple Hearts for now)

I saw printscreens of the After Action screen on this forum (Mission Walkthroughs) which is different from what I see in Xbox.

Q)Is the "After Action" screen I saw above for the PC version only?

The screen I get after a mission is done looks different in Xbox.

Q)Does Xbox version show Campaign Ribbons as well?

Sorry for the laundry list.

Thanks for your help!

MAN, welcome to 2001. You are just getting into XBOX Ghost Recon Now? Sheesh.

I don't recall the answers to ANY of your questions...but a word or two of advice..

1. enjoy the game...but move on to Ghost Recon Island Thunder, Ghost Recon 2, Ghost Recon 2: Summit Strike. Much better games.

2. you can find some good informaiton here:

http://www.gamefaqs.com/search/index.html?...&platform=0

Look under XBOX. You can see that there are FAQs, guides, and other info on each game there. If that link doesn't work....go to that site and search for Ghost Recon. You will see the XBOX section.

3. Check out

www. ick.bz

Each of the Ghost Recon games has a weapon guide there.

Actually all of those things you mention are in the Xbox version.

The medals are awarded to you as you achieve all of the objectives in the dossier.

The After Action screen comes up and gives you details in regard to Alpha's stats and Bravo's stats, and also info on each soldier you had on the mission.

As far as Will Jacobs goes, are you completing the mission in coop mode or in SP mode? All the missions need to be run in SP mode in order to unlock all the specialists.

Good Luck!

Just so you know, GR2 is quite different from GR1. In my view GR1 is the better game. GR2 is more arcade like and is more attuned to "run 'n gun" than GR1.

Also, if you have a PC you should be able to play the game on your PC. The PC version with Desert Siege and Island Thunder can be had for about $10, now. If you can play with a keyboard and mouse, I think you'll like the PC version better.

There isn't much "recon" in Ghost _Recon_ 2. But you might like that better. It's great if you do. But, at least go read some reviews before you grab it. No sense wasting money.

They have GRAW available for the XBox, too. It's not much like GR1 at all. Again, I'd read the reviews and play the demo if you can get it. I'd play the GR2 demo if there is one (I don't know if there is).

BTW, GR2 never came out on the PC. UBISoft decided it wasn't worth the effort for them.
