  1. It's a tough, fun game that will have you coming back for more until you've mastered it. But it all feels a little dated now. Be aware that this isn't your typical shooter either... silent, but violent.
  2. I think we can all agree that it's better than Tom Clancy's "Sum of All Fears." Yikes.
  3. There is no reason in beating a dead horse; no Gamecube owner expects online gameplay from a Gamecube title. With that said Rainbow Six 3 offers enjoyable squad-based gameplay and will certainly fill up the appetite of Gamecube owners.
  4. There is just too much missing here for this game to become a permanent fixture in your game library.

    [The GCN version] has ejected what was the big draw of the Xbox original: the online functionality. It's kind of like taking the meat out of the hamburger. What's left is a single-player-emphasized shooter that's still intriguing and fun, if a little clunky, but nonetheless only a fraction of what it might have been.
  6. This game is simply sub-par to it's Xbox counterpart, and for that matter the PS2 version as well.
  7. A game that screams "missed opportunity". This is a flawed and lazy port of a great game.

    You arnt going to get much better than this for a realistic FPS for the cube. Yes it does have its issues, like the long loading times, some AI problems here and there, but dispite some of thoughs things, the game is preaty fun. This game is not near as a disapontment like ghost recon, and sum of all fears, which were horible games. The team AI in my opion is ok, it could be better, but you team at least is able to defend themselfs, and do some work for you, overall, I say that its a good game. Expand
