  1. Fan service at best, nothing here warrants a full admission price.

    With "Denied Ops" dropping the Conflict ball and "Call Of Duty 4"’s snappy splendour drowning any tactical sense, it’s a likeable and distracting continuation, but one that won’t be difficult to usurp. [Apr 2008, p.90]
  3. The coop campaign mode is extremely challenging and fun to play, yet the best experience to be had with games like Rainbow Six Vegas 2 still resides online in the 16 player lobbies via multiplayer.
  4. It refuses to take any meaningful gambles. Fans may enjoy having more of their favorite game, but they might also find it drab and boring after so much of the same.

    This is a pure sequel, everything is pretty much the same that R6 Vegas 1 (with slightly better graphics), the story is pretty bad and soundThis is a pure sequel, everything is pretty much the same that R6 Vegas 1 (with slightly better graphics), the story is pretty bad and sound quite unrealistic, it's a shame for a game that otherwise wants, and succeed, to make you feel like a true elite squad leader, with realistics gunfight, good team management and operational strategy. In fact the story is so bad i would say that you don't need to fulfill the first episode, if you want to experience a SWAT (well Rainbow in that case) look alike gameplay, you might as well do it with the nicest looking one, those R6 games definitely offer this nice feeling . Or even Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 if you're looking for good tactical shooters more than just SWAT look alike. Full Review »

    A bit better from the first game, online is playable now. But basically the same, tactical shooter which doesn't bring anything new orA bit better from the first game, online is playable now. But basically the same, tactical shooter which doesn't bring anything new or interesting. Only buy if fan of tactical shooters, and still this isn't the best of them. Full Review »

    This game is so real that I'm turning into a republican. I
    love killing terrorists. It's the best part of my life, these
    days.

    days. Wake up, play some Vegas 2. Think about sex. Play more Vegas 2. Play more Vegas 2. Eat. No. Play more. And more. I think I'm going mad. Thanks Ubisoft.
