They didn't develop the original Ghost Recon, Only the Advance War series.

GRAW2 was 'ok' but the rest of the lot was some outstanding product deficiencies candidates. They should buy the Crytek3 engine and do Ghost Recon right.

I actually thought the Diesel engine was ok, pretty flexible engine.

I really liked their GRAW games, tactical FPS gameplay wise they were really good. Great weapons, great sounds, nice animations and really nice attention to details but unfortunally the engine didn't impress me all that much in the GRAW games mostly because of missing AA and a bit too bland color/contrast settings in many levels.
