Anyone know the Ghost Recon Creed said in GR1 Commercials? --Johnston49er 04:11, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Scott Mitchell Page[edit]

Maybe someone should make a Scott Mitchell page, I'll make a start Lawnmowers Rock! 02:28, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

Made the "Captain Scott Mitchell" Page, need some advice on the info.

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was move. --MrStalker talk 08:36, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

— These articles is about video game series under the Tom Clancy brand, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six and Splinter Cell respectively, and should be named as such. Note also that the terms Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six and Slinter Cell can have other meanings then the video game series. —MrStalker talk 07:55, 21 September 2007 (UTC)


Feel free to state your position on the renaming proposal by beginning a new line in this section with *'''Support''' or *'''Oppose''', then sign your comment with ~~~~. Since polling is not a substitute for discussion, please explain your reasons, taking into account Wikipedia's naming conventions.


Any additional comments:
  • Comment. No particular opinion whether "Tom Clancy's" should be prepended, but I object to the proposed organization. There are many game series which follow the similar pattern: FooBar becomes a big hit on the 1st release, and then it gets the sequels titled "FooBar: The Bar's revenge", "FooBar: the big adventure" and so on. However, in similar cases, the first ("undisambiguated") sequel gets the most text as the characters are recurring, the theme is used later, and separating the series article from the first sequel article is usually confusing and artificial; incoming links may be intended for the first one in the series, or entire series, or be entirely moot.
    To prove that, take a look at the current Ghost Recon and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: LOTS of duplicated information, repeated text etc.
    I propose simply merging the "series" article with the "first sequel" article, under whatever name. In the "ghost recon" case, it may turn out to simply redirecting (superficially, I see nothing or little in the series article not already told in the 1st sequel article). Situation is not much different with the other two. Duja 14:40, 27 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Comment. Re series/first-installment, seems like there should be a convention on this issue, though cursory look at Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games didn't show such. Perhaps: "[series title]" → "Tom Clancy's [series title] (series)", combined with proposed names for individual games articles. ENeville 15:46, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Reception edit war[edit]

I've been seeing frequent reversions of the article's Reception section in the past few days. To those who have been removing/reposting them, please discuss it first here before taking it out on the wikitext. Thanks. Eaglestorm (talk) 09:59, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Questionable Information[edit]

On March 8, user Metalgearps2 added the following entry

"On [[September 1], 2007], Ubisoft released the game for free to US residents, but was canceled when non-US residents downloaded the game."

The information was uncited and I consider it suspect. If anyone can verify it to be true and provides a credible source then feel free to revert, thanks.

Russian Invasion of Georgia, August 2008[edit]

It's 2008, and Russia is invading South Ossetia. (Posting on 8/8/08.) The coindidence to Ghost Recon 1 is more than a little freaky. Perhaps some mention should be made on its Wiki page? Just a thought. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:40, 8 August 2008 (UTC) (talk) —Preceding comment was added at 12:26, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

According to [[1]] the campaign was actually in April of 2008, a more reliable source would be great, but I think the august 2008 claim needs varification. Still a few months off is remarkably close. (talk) 15:09, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Sorry to burst the bubbles of people viewing the article, but whatever you think, connecting GR1's scenario with the current situation in Georgia, claiming that the game 'foreshadowed', 'predicted', 'resembled' the conflict is nothing more than trying to insert OR. So what if the scenario takes place in the same year, involving the same countries as the actual conflict? It proves nothing! Please stop putting in such disruptive edits. Thank you. --Eaglestorm (talk) 16:58, 22 August 2008 (UTC)


Does anybody know if they intend to continue the Ghost Recon series beyond GRAW 2, or is the series complete? Since the storylines of the other Tom Clancy games are continued in H.A.W.X. and EndWar, does GRAW 2 appear to be the end? (talk) 01:55, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

New Ghost Recon Was Confirmed on the 23rd of January. G4 Anounced it there is the link for it. SPARTAN-J024 (talk) 18:35, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
