    Rainbow Six Siege is an accessible and deeply satisfying shooter that rewards planning and teamwork over a quick trigger finger.

    An excellent and innovative breath of fresh air. The more I play, the more I like. I hope this is new role model for shooters to come. [Jan 2016]

    Multiplayer is the key word for this game, because you will gain nothing from Siege if you are looking for a single player experience.

    Although the single-player side of the game is weak, Rainbow Six: Siege's multiplayer modes are a huge amount of fun. Tense, thoughtful, and tactical, they play very differently to most run-and-gun shooters. While the game's content does feel a little slim at launch, there's no denying it's highly enjoyable to play - especially when you have a team of players working together.

    My time with Siege leaves me feeling like this Rainbow Six revival is a skeleton with not a lot of meat on its bones.

    Rainbow Six Siege delivers on its promise of tension, tactics and teamwork, but it might not be worth AU$70; there are bugs both big and small that need squashing, there's no server browser, and connection errors are too common. There's something else to consider, too: PC players have been abandoning multiplayer-only titles in record time this year.

    Rainbow Six Siege‘s core concept, namely its destructible world and reliance on communication-based strategy, is strong, but everything surrounding it seems to falter.

    A refreshing take on the FPS genre that sits closer to CS: GO on the FPS spectrum than it does to BF/COD. I expect this game to get polarizedA refreshing take on the FPS genre that sits closer to CS: GO on the FPS spectrum than it does to BF/COD. I expect this game to get polarized reviews, either people will love it, or hate it because experience can differ heavily. When you have a team that works together with mics and coordinates, its one of the best games I've played in the last couple years - however when you have a lone wolf that insists on doing their own thing or a team that doesn't really coordinate it can be very frustrating. Overall my experience has been really positive (PC), people seem to be getting into the spirit of the game and while there are a couple bugs, there isn't anything too major that detracts from the overall experience. Although there are still micro-transactions, I give props to Ubi for free DLC maps and operators. Overall I think this is a strong shooter that will get better in the coming months. Expand

    I am cutting to the chase:
    RB6 Siege offers a great gaming experience (disclaimer: I have never played another RB6 game) with great graphics, sound effects and even HD textures. This is just the shell of the game offering far more than that.
    Gameplay: It is a attackers-/defenders game with a few scenarios: hostage, bio hazard seizure, bomb disarming. Both sides undergo a prep phase (t = 30 s), during which attackers try to find the objective and locate enemies with motorized ground drones and defenders need to find a defending strategy using different gadgets. No round will be the same, since your tactics will vary because of ever changing objective spots and different operators (see below). Another variable is the destructible environment around you. Walls or floors can be blown up, smashed or shot through. Effects for destruction are top notch!
    Operators: Represented are five nations' special forces (France, USA, GB, Russia, Germany). Herein are 4 unlockable operators each. 2 defenders, 2 attackers, 20 in total. They feature different skills and specifics, which brings much variety to the game. Every operator has any operator specific weapon available from the start on! YOU can choose which reticle or other attachment you want to unlock against progression points.
    Progression: You can earn easy points via singleplayer and watching introductional videos. The harder earned but higher rewarded points you will collect via multiplayer. And here is the only downside I see so far: You also can buy XP boosters against real money. This is not directly corrupting, but it has a certain taste to it.
    The ugly: You don't have a server browser. It is matchmaking. Most of the time it works properly, but I prefer a browser where you can change your preferences. Now you are bound to the "casual" game style until operator level 20, after which you will be able to play "ranked" to earn more XP. The thing is, that even after level 20 you are able to play "casual", which leads to people on lvl 80+ to bash noobs in "casual".
    Another issue is the ping fidelity. Synchronization does not seem to work properly all the time, which leads to many deaths resulting from latency. This is annoying, since you have to wait for the round to end after you die.
    Bottom line: I enjoy the game a lot. I've been playing for around 10 hours and I already got 14/20 operators with the inventory of my choosing. This seems to be one of the best features, which games like Battlefield or CoD don't seem to want to implement.
    I'd rather skip the part of giving points, but metacritic works like that, so I'm guessing 5/7 (let's see, who gets it).

    Old review from when the game first came out:

    This game gets a 2 for only after a year getting a real anticheat (Battle eye), and for the incredible destructibility that the environments in the game offer. albeit to late to make this game what it could have been.
    The game has way to much interp, and has a very real problem with people exploiting the **** netcode and ping advantage afforded by this.
    This game had the potential to have over throne CSGO as the big competitive shooter, but languished in Ubisofts incompetent hands, game breaking bug after game breaking bug fixed and then introduced by Ubisoft, and day one issues that continue to plague this game to this day. most glaring of which is the **** netcode, and broken matchmaker that can leave you sitting in queue for upwards of 40 mins, in some cases in ranked. it completely kills the momentum of the game, but that is not even what really killed this game, no its death came early right at launch when this game was left with no anticheat what so ever for at least 3 months before "Fairfight" came, and even then it was highly ineffectual to the point that the game became unplayable due to the amount of rampaging wallhackers in the community. only after the introduction of Battleeye did the game really show its true potential, while still being hamstrung by **** netcode and broken matchmaker. This game is a prime example of how a big name Developer can absolutely destroy a great idea.

The destruction is great, andI hardly ever write reviews, but felt compelled to after [thankfully] buying this game for only £12 on Steam. The destruction is great, and I'm sure it is a decent tactical shooter, but the gun play itself leaves a lot to be desired.

    Do not buy this expecting a successor to Vegas-style gameplay. There isn't much to do beyond the siege game type. Terrorist hunt is shockingly bad, almost every entrance is blocked and you have to breach - no opening doors here.

    If you want something a littler spicier than camping inside small rooms, you're out of luck. No deathmatch, no team deathmatch, once you're dead in siege, you're dead and left waiting. No server browser, crappy matchmaking.

    I find the lack of variety in gameplay surprising considering how easy it would be to throw a few people on a map and let them shoot it out. If you're expecting ANYTHING like the previous instalments, you will be sorely disappointed.
