    Dull, lifeless, unexciting and other words for 'boring,' Rainbow Six: Lockdown is uninspired and not worth your cash. [Nov 2005, p.126]
  2. Lockdown is definitely a good game for those who are new to the tactical shooter genre, but the controls hamper the enjoyment of the game.
  3. This is a big step back for the franchise, and one that used to pride itself on realism and pacing. Again, it's not a bad game, it's just a bad Rainbow Six game.

    The hard-core realism and punishing difficulty that earned this franchise its rabid fan base has been diluted, and what's left is a hardcore strategic series that's trying awfully hard to be a little more run and gun. It doesn't quite work.

    Steel-eyed competence, but not a whole lot of flash. [Nov 2005, p.110]

    Although the single-player game is lacking, the same thankfully can't be said about the multiplayer, which is just as strong as ever.

    it's ultimately just another tactical shooter to throw on the growing pile of games that make you truly appreciate your mouse and keyboard. [Dec p.92]
  8. The new arcade-style squad control may make things quicker, but it short-circuits the one thing that made Rainbow Six different: intelligent squad strategy.
