GRAW 2 PC demo available

Single-player war taster.

Ubisoft has crawled out of cover to release the single-player demo for the PC version of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2.

The package weighs in at a meaty 1.77 GB and lets you try out the entire first level of the campaign. A full list of download locations can be found on the official website.

The full PC game is due out at the end of next week and will bring a map editor, new multiplayer mode, and apparently "more tactical" experience to the table. A multiplayer demo is already available to try.

The Xbox 360 version of the game was released earlier in the year and received a hearty pat on the back from Eurogamer. It wasn't hugely dissimilar to the first instalment, although it was more polished and probably represented a better overall experience.

But Ubisoft insists the PC redux is a bit different, having been put together by a different team and so on, so perhaps you should cast your eyes over our PC first impressions for more detail.

Or you could head over to our Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 Xbox 360 review to find out more about that one.
