    Good news the patch should be out now or very soon. Details on the patch....

    Ubisoft today announced that an auto-update for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon 2 will be available for download via Xbox Live. The auto-update includes the following:

    * Adds user interface element to indicate which players are entering and leaving lobby
    * Adds user interface element to indicate which player(s) are talking
    * Improves network stability
    * Fixes a respawn issue where respawned players could get killed immediately
    * Reduces the amount of time needed to validate downloadable content
    * Addresses a minor sound issue with sound effects and voice over
    * Localizes an error message
    * The friend's list is easier to scroll through and use


    Also downloadable content should be available for download on Monday. Details.......
    In addition to the auto-update, new downloadable content will be made available for download on Monday, 7th March 2005. It will include 3 maps, 2 modes, 8 weapons and 2 skins – be one of the first to grab it!

    Patches for consoles, whats next!? :rolleyes:

    Just kidding.
    Its actually a good thing to be able to iron out any flaws in a game, but wont this just make developers lazier and rush out unfinished games just to meet deadlines and holidays?
    Thats what game testers are for right?

    Games testers?? Ubisoft dont have any :devil: Have you played any of there games on xbox live?? Some laughable glitches and bugs.
    But saying that just look at Halo 2 - they spent years testing the online game, only they seemed to have missed a load of bugs/glitches.

    I played this again last night, when me and my mate got back from the pub.

    spent 20 mins, and never once got into a game !?!

    you spend ages waiting for it to finish, and the one minute you jump out, it starts up without you. absolutely rubbish.

    I think the press release from ubisoft should read we are releasing a patch to replace 100% of the xbox live interface, whoever wrote the interface and subsequently tested it needs taking out and shot :suicide: - can't believe ubisoft didn't think that RS6 has a decent live interface that actually works lets reuse that (i know it probably different developers)

    I actually think GR2 is a good game when you get to play it, but finding your friends, reading messages and then getting into a game is a nightmare - u do spend more time looking for a game than playing it

    Well had a good play with this and have to say well done Ubisoft :smashin:
    The New maps are very good - finally some smaller maps.
    The New weapons are superb - Finally have some Silenced weapons, the mp5 is back and is very nice.
    New games modes are very good as well - with at last some good spawn points (you dont spawn right next to each other, like on other game modes making the huge maps pointless on those other modes)
