Name: Dave Age: 15 Console: X-Box Gameplay: The single player storyline is well thought out and is quite an interesting plot. You control a variety of different soldiers such as riflemen, snipers, demolition experts and support troops. It is a very much based on strategy, and is suitable for a solo player. But it's not ideal for multi-players. It's difficult for beginners. It requires a lot of thought and stealth to succeed. If you mess up and are shot, you'll almost definitely die. Graphics: The quality of the graphics is quite good, but not as great as other X-Box titles. The screen was quite dark, making it hard to see. Overall: Having played the earlier Ghost Recon games Ghost Recon (X-Box) and Ghost Recon: Desert Siege (PC), I found Island Thunder to be a much better game, because they weapons are more realistic and the manoeuverability of your team is greatly improved. However, I found the multi-player game lacked a lot when used for PvP. Overall it was a slightly above average when compared to other X-Box titles. But I doubt I would recommend the game to friends unless they had enjoyed the previous Ghost Recon titles. Name: Vikki Age: 25 Console: X-Box Gameplay: This is quite a difficult choice for those who are not familiar with strategy action games, despite the fact there are seven different modes of training and three levels of difficulty for you to choose from. There is a variety of gameplay. You can choose just a quick mission or a lengthy campaign. Although it supports multi-player and X-Box Live functions, the game is designed rather for a solo player. The split screen for two-player mode is distracting. Graphics: I think the graphics could have been much better. You can still see the angular features of the supposedly smooth surfaces, such as the trees and landscapes. Overall: It's hard to control, and the movement of the characters is too slow for me. Another thing is that you get killed easily, and this is frustrating. It takes a long time to get into the game. If you are used to games with exciting plots and fancy graphics, Island Thunder might not be a good choice.
