Pro-G have seen some pretty good looking games arrive on the PS3 over the past six months and GRAW 2 is up with the best of them. No other game recreates the feeling of being in a war-torn environment as well as GRAW 2, be it the smoke that blows across the ground, the atmospheric lighting effects from fire and explosions, the pounding audio work, the incredible musical score that fits every moment perfectly or the incredible detail that has gone into each and every location.
You know a game's got that something special about it when you can't stop playing, and GRAW 2 has nailed it. The pacing is brilliant, the set-pieces are unbelievable and the sense of drama towards the climax is unrivalled.
GRAW 2 is unquestionably a huge success. A short campaign aside, it does everything GRAW fans would want from a sequel and once again confirms Ubisoft as one of the leading next-gen publishers. It also proves that Xbox 360 to PS3 ports needn't be sloppy.
