GRAW 2 Throwback Pack on XBL

I hope I’m not alone in this, but I tend to get a bit nostalgic when playing in a good match of Ghost Recon. Sometimes I reminisce about the awesome maps I used to play in past GR games — and what I would do if ever given the chance to revisit those maps in the new game.

Apparently, UbiSoft knows what I’ve been thinking. Meet the GRAW2 Throwback Pack…

GRAW2 Throwback Pack
800 Points
All Xbox Live regions
Dash Details:
Play 7 of your favorite Ghost Recon maps re-mastered.

The maps are as follows:

  • Bonfires from GR2
  • Desert Gulch from GRAW
  • Fishing Village from GRAW
  • Jungle Mines from GRAW
  • Mountain Base from GR2SS
  • Mountain Falls from GR2
  • and Peninsula from GR2

Now I’m not sure whether to be happy or sad about this map pack. As much as I love those maps – they’re a mixture of maps from Ghost Recon, GR: Summit Strike, and GRAW – I don’t know if I want to spend 800 Points ($10) on them. I love the fact that they’re cheaper than the current “200 Points/Map” pricing scheme, but another $10 for a game I already spent $60 on is a little tough to swallow.

Maybe it wouldn’t bother me too much if I played GRAW2 every day and got more playtime out of it, but I haven’t completed the campaign – let alone play a decent amount of multiplayer.

The fact that these maps are quite literally a steal as far as Xbox Live pricing standards goes (which shows that the powers that be are at least paying attention to gamers’ wishes) intrigues me highly, but I think I’ll hold off until I get deeper into the multiplayer aspect of the game before I get this pack.

Besides, I have to fill my summer months with a good shooter to tide me over until H3 hits this fall!
