Ghost Recon

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 Of course the engine is really far behind the current Unreal Technology used in Unreal Tournament III. The original Unreal Tournament is free meanwhile. Check out this Yahoo Group to learn more about that: … 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!
