Rebelstar: Tactical Command (2005)
Laser Squad Nemesis (2002)
The Dreamland Chronicles: Freedom Ridge (cancelled)

I've seen a gameplay video of Ghost Recon. Let's say that if you're a fan of games like Laser Squad and X-Com, then buying it is pointless as it doesn't have anything in common with these games. While Laser Squad and X-Com are simulationist, GR is extremely abstract, more like some kind of a tactical jRPG than like his older games.

His game history after UFO are basically about going away from the brutal simulationist model of UFO and LS and making less and less lethal and more abstract games. So, he's lost to our cause.
