  • Summary: Command Team Rainbow in their toughest mission yet. When one of your own is taken hostage, do you follow orders or do you break them in order to save the life of one of your own men? The next Rainbow Six title features a thrilling single-player campaign that has you playing as either the confident team leader, Ding Chavez, who never leaves a man behind, or as the team's arrogant sniper, Dieter Weber, who never misses a shot. The final result: a totally immersive experience - which becomes even more compelling when gamers go online to play against other fans from around the world, using voice chat to communicate with one another. New weapons and equipment: Complete your mission with all of the tools of the trade including new items like motion trackers, battering rams, and the deadly MTAR-21 micro assault rifle. Stunning graphics and ultra-realistic "ragdoll" physics deliver staggering realism and spectacular close quarter firefights. New Rivalry Mode pits Rainbow operatives against trained mercenaries in objective-driven team-based adversarial gameplay. [Ubisoft] 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. It’s still above average and the multiplayer modes are worth investing time in if you’ve enjoyed them before.
  3. Beyond the P.E.C. mode and faster gameplay, not a whole lot has changed since Black Arrow, which disappoints even the most meager expectations for change.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Steel-eyed competence, but not a whole lot of flash. [Nov 2005, p.110]
  7. 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.

    The squad play in single mode is lovely (example; the double breach). I like the graphics and sound. The physics of the falling enemy is superb. I can't understand the low rating. Expand

    Great game. RS Lockdown for PS2 is easily the best console version yet, and one of the better console FPS out there. Great weapons, good graphics and interesting gameplay. Worth a buy. Expand
