I found a CD with Ghost Recon that came with a graphics card that I bought a while ago (I think it was the MSI 5700 Ultra that I toased by overclocking it). The game came out in 2001 and predicted the war in Georgia in 2008. I was suprised by the quality of the graphics that looks very much like the Unreal Engine to me. I found some reference about this on http://www.ghostrecon.net. Of course the engine is really far behind the current Unreal Technology http://www.unrealtechnology.com/ used in Unreal Tournament III. The original Unreal Tournament is free meanwhile. Check out this Yahoo Group to learn more about that: http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/UnrealFraggers … there are still a lot of nice servers with custom maps running. I was surprised how many players this game still has.

This is the intro of Ghost Recon. Ultra nationalists? Could be Putin 😉

I took some screenshots in one of the maps. If there was an award for the nicest low-poly-city Ghost Recon would get it for sure!
