Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon games have always been known for their simulation of near-future tactical squad combat, pitting the wits of a few wily soldiers against the forces of dystopia. In a world on edge, sometimes stabilization requires the insertion of highly-trained special forces soldiers into hostile territory, to clean up a dirty mess or just to make sure that a real war doesn't erupt.
In Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, the same basic premise is taken to an extreme. During a political conference in Mexico City, a military coup d'etat is birthed, people are being assassinated, cats and dogs are living together...basically, bad times all around. Luckily for right-thinking people everywhere, the elite Ghosts are on the ground in Mexico City. Although the Mexican President has requested American military intervention, it'll take a while to get forces on the ground, and since you're already in town, it'll be up to the Ghosts to perform the risky missions required to stabilize the situation during the first few days of the insurgency.
Advanced Warfighter has been in the works for a while now, and it's definitely one of the best games to hit the Xbox360 during that console's short lifespan. This guide to Advanced Warfighter concentrates on the single-player portion of the game, giving you plenty of tips and videos to get through the many rough missions of the game. Enjoy!
