Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm enriches the Ghost Recon series with its focus on tactical gameplay and strategic mission planning in the dense jungles of Colombia. With new missions, enhanced gameplay, and a dedicated multiplayer component, it remains a notable title for fans of military simulations and tactical shooters.


Dive into the heart of Colombia with Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm, the compelling expansion to the acclaimed tactical shooter. This title not only incorporates the beloved Island Thunder expansion but also adds a suite of new missions and maps that test your strategy and teamwork.


‘Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm’ is a tactical shooter game developed by Red Storm Entertainment and published by Ubisoft. The game is an expansion of ‘Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon’ and was released for the PlayStation 2, Nokia N-Gage, and mobile phones. It contains the content of ‘Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Island Thunder’ along with eight new single-player missions set in Colombia and additional multiplayer maps.

The plot of the game is set in Bogotá, Colombia, and revolves around the actions of the drug cartel FARC, which had previously aided and financed the FDG in their efforts in Cuba. The FARC initiates a series of terrorist attacks against the Colombian government, which has allied itself with the United States. In response to Colombia’s call for help following an attack on a U.S. embassy, the U.S. deploys the Ghosts, America’s deadliest Special Forces unit, to restore order and put the cartel out of business.

Once deployed, the Ghosts face off with a newly formed militia group called the MFLC (Movimiento de las Fuerzas Libres Colombianas), which is essentially the southern equivalent of the FARC. The chaos caused by the MFLC is spreading into Ecuador and Peru, making the peacekeeping effort especially vital.

Throughout the campaign, the Ghosts hunt down several of the MFLC’s leaders, defend civilian centers spread throughout the region, free civilian prisoners, and cut off the flow of drugs in order to deny the MFLC financial backing. Despite the Ghosts causing significant damage to the MFLC’s war efforts, the MFLC and the FARC have connections to sleeper cells in democratic Cuba. Unless they are told to hold back their use of force by their commanders in Colombia, they will cause widespread damage to Cuba and its populace.

To prevent this senseless act of violence, the Ghosts assault the last major MFLC campsite in the hills, which surrounds a large radio tower. With the help of UN peacekeepers and captured personnel at the tower, the Ghosts shut down the sleeper cells in Cuba, paving the way for them to strike at the heart of the MFLC and ending their rebellion permanently.

The game goes into little detail as to what happens after the MFLC are defeated, but it is implied that their defeat shuts down the rebellion put up by the other rebel factions and the FARC across Colombia.

In terms of gameplay, players control six characters in up to three fireteams; the characters are drawn from four classes, Rifleman, Heavy Gunner, Demolition, and Sniper. The game is a first-person shooter and contains 16 single-player missions and 31 multiplayer maps.

‘Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm’ provides a thrilling and immersive experience, allowing players to step into the shoes of the Ghosts and take part in high-stakes, tactical combat in the jungles of Colombia. The game’s detailed plot and engaging gameplay make it a standout title in the ‘Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon’ series.


Lead a diverse team of Ghosts, each with their own specialized skills ranging from heavy weapons to reconnaissance and sniping. Key characters include team leader Scott Mitchell and various other operatives, each bringing unique abilities to the mission at hand.


Gameplay revolves around tactical movement, surveillance, and combat. Players must use the environment to their advantage, deploying drones for reconnaissance, setting ambushes, and choosing when to engage with the enemy. Cooperation with team members and strategic use of resources are crucial to success.


Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm stands as a testament to the tactical shooter genre, offering a challenging and immersive experience. Despite its flaws, the game captures the essence of what makes tactical operations thrilling, providing hours of strategic gameplay.
