  • Summary: The next installment in the Rainbow Six series introduces a new single-player experience featuring advanced equipment and new storylines. This time, you can play as either Ding Chavez (the leader of Team Rainbow) or Dieter Weber (a sniper in charge of covering his team's movement). You must lead your counterterrorist unit into unfamiliar territory to battle a bioterrorist threat. Rainbow Six 3 also features online multiplayer modes, including the PS2-exclusive rivalry mode and the Xbox-exclusive career mode. Collapse

    And to top it all off, Lockdown features Lifetime channel–style scenes that do their damnedest to to make you think of your squad mates as real pals instead of the "meat shields" they really are.
  2. With a lengthy yet entertaining campaign mode, Rainbow Six: Lockdown manages to pull off the best Rainbow Six game on the GameCube.
  3. While still a worthwhile shooter, Lockdown's overall feel may leave longtime fans wondering if the developers have finally strayed too far from their roots.
  4. 74
    Doesn't live up to the goals the team originally set for itself, but despite not being a great or impressive game, this new version still isn't all that bad. It's just not all that good; nor is it nearly as good as the previous iterations in the series.
  5. 60
    It will attract new fans to the franchise with it's fast, arcade action. It will deter old fans with it's fast, arcade action.
  6. Lockdown has a steep learning curve and an unfair difficulty level for all players not intimately familiar with the Rainbow Six setup.
  7. As an action game, it's intense and fun; as a tactical game...well, it's not one. [Nov 2005, p.114]
