Indiana Jones or Ghost Recon?

I love Indiana Jones movies and I love realistic war games. I am not sure which game I should buy. Which is just an overall better game?....which should I get?

Well, they are both very different games.

If you are a die hard fan of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer...the game made for the XBox, then, definately pick up Indiana Jones if you are a huge fan. The reason why I mention this is that Indiana Jones uses the same engine as Buffy...which is a very very very good thing.

Ghost Recon is also a great game. If you have XBox Live, then, it's a must. Also, if you enjoy extremely tactical situations, then, Ghost Recon is for you.

Indiana Jones is very fast paced in comparison to Ghost Recon. In Ghost Recon, you have to play it as if you were truly the soldier out in the jungle, Embassy, or wherever you may be. In other words, don't try playing as if you were "Rambo" when playing GR...you'll end up getting smoked.

well purely from reviews, indy fell short of perfect while ghost did pretty well, but i'd say, if u played ghost on pc and liked it, then thats a good indication, also if u have xbox live, go with that cuz u can play ghost online, ur decision tho

i haven't played indiana jones before but i own ghost recon, and the single player is pretty sweet, but if u have xbl, than online play is excellent, i'd recommend buying it, its definately best xbl game out at the moment

Have Live, get Ghost Recon, that's why replay value is very high with it.

Want to try something like a unique single experience, go with Indiana Jones.

Yes. 2 Totally different games. Indy follows the movies very well and is a great Tombraider style game. Good combat and puzzles, great environments, wildlife and different locales from the movies. Ghost Recon is a must if you have live. It's all a matter of taste. I own both and enjoy them at different times. Both games are worthy of the price of admission.:cheers:

I personally hated both of those games. Indiana Jones was insanely boring, and Ghost Recon doesnt fare well without a keyboard/mouse.

And you can get Buffy for $24.99 at EB.

I don't care for Buffy. The only reason Indiana Jones game attracted me was that I love the movies. I much rather spend the extra money to play as Jones than Buffy.

I just ended up getting both. I hate spending money like that but both games are cool. Ghost is ultra-realistic and Indiana Jones has that movie quality. The music is unbelievable.

Bah. GR does just fine w/out kb/mouse.

Someone who will go unmentioned managed to take me out with a small burst w/ a pkm from the end of the long street in Vilnius.

That's enough precision for me.
