    For the most part it's a well-made shooter with a high-quality campaign, but players might want to forego playing online until the development team irons some of the kinks out.

    This is a good installment in the series, well-optimized for Apple devices. In spite of a multiplayer mode than only works well with very good connections, this is a good game if you can get used to the controls.

    The best way to sum up Rainbow Six Shadow Vanguard is that it's very competent in every area, but far from the killer app that many might have hoped it would be.

    It can be hard to master, and what Rainbow Six game isn't?, but once you get into a few multi-player bouts you'll get a good and solid multi-player experience, it's just not quite great.

    Even if it's very challenging and technically great, Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard is ruined by chaotic and inaccurate controls. To be clear, gunfights are amusing and aiming with the gyro is easy and fun. Another problem of the game is the crowded GUI, with a lot of icons that invade the screen, while teammates and enemies suffer of a terrible AI.

    The cluttered controls and odd intelligence of both enemies and teammates throws a little cold water on the game.

    Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard should be a good game, yet uncharacteristic lack of polish and attention to detail derail this tactical shooter.

    Shadow Vanguard, despite all its bells and whistles, proves to be a lacklustre affair, to be endured rather than enjoyed. Its initial showy promise is just a facade. Move along, there's nothing more to see here.

    Really sets the standard to what an iOS game should be. The first person shooter gameplay and astounding graphics are just incredible. TheReally sets the standard to what an iOS game should be. The first person shooter gameplay and astounding graphics are just incredible. The only
    problem is the repetitive missions and (at times) slow gunplay. Otherwise, this is a must-buy for all iOS gamers.
