    The gameplay feels as though it has mapped exceptionally well to the PS3's controller, unlike many other ports for the console. However, Rainbow Six has traditionally been a multiplayer-focused franchise, and it's here that the game disappoints.

    I totally understand why rainbow six divide a lot of the players, but personally I love those tactical shooters all branded with Tom Clancy'sI totally understand why rainbow six divide a lot of the players, but personally I love those tactical shooters all branded with Tom Clancy's seal. First to really experience Rainbow Six Vegas you have to play in the "realistic" mode (well you can find more realistic with ARMA or Operation Flashpoint), therefore if you don't like hard games I'd strongly advice to NOT play Rainbow Six Vegas as the graphics and the story are not worthy of any financial investment.
    If you still interested then you must own this game, the gameplay is truly great, you have to think and act fast when you're under fire, your teammates and enemies AI are at the top.
    Rainbow Six Vegas isn't your perfect game, but it's a very enjoyable Tactical Shooter if you are an amateur of the genre or just want to try it , I recommend R6 Vegas if you've already done Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 (that have better story and graphics).

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. I had really big hopes for this game I've played the single player campaign and it's not good, very poor graphics and A.I. if you throw a grenade this one better fall close to an enemy and I mean close, on their pockets, to hurt them. It's a not a contest to see in which console a poor game looks better. The story makes no sense some times, let me elaborate, you are in Mexico fighting some sort of guerrilla and in a very bizarre way both your fully-equipped-bad-ass-expert-killing machines partners get kidnapped by a girl with no guns, you manage to escape and get rescued by another girl and then your superior tells you that you can't go back and rescue them instead you need to go to Vegas to fight more terrorists and that he feels that you may find your friends there! really?! To me this was a very GENERIC FPS it brings nothing new to the genre. Play it if you are curious about it that's all. Full Review »

    I do not agree with the meta and user score here. Though I am not also tactical shooter fan but this game is very dull. Single player isI do not agree with the meta and user score here. Though I am not also tactical shooter fan but this game is very dull. Single player is really generic, you can also co-op the campaign with your friend but even that doesn't work so good. If friend dies, he will not spawn for long time, also if you both die you must watch lot of unskippable cutscenes. Also there is terrorist hunt, a survival or hunt them-type of game which is used in hundreds of titles before - nothing new here at all. Online lacks quality too. I liked the old Rainbow Six but here isn't anything interesting. Full Review »
