  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.

    Although the Cube version may be considered Rainbow Six 3 -Lite, it makes a good first-person shooter...Since there has been so much hype about this series for years, the less you expect from this game the better you'll like it.
  3. The game controls well for the GameCube controller, but as Rainbow Six 3 was really designed for the Xbox and PS2, the GC's lack of input buttons does hurt it a bit.
  4. I think we can all agree that it's better than Tom Clancy's "Sum of All Fears." Yikes.
  5. The AI in the game is competent but not exceptional. Your enemies will often neglect to take cover even though there is some close by and will sometimes charge right into your gunfire.
  6. 75
    If you're looking for a thinking person's shooter that'll let you go to all corners of the world and hopefully make it back alive, this is the one for you.
  7. 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.

    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. Full Review »
