    This review contains spoilers, click expand 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. Expand

    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 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, aI do not agree with the meta and user score here.

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. Expand

    As a proud 'Microsoft fangirl', I'll happily whine loudly and proudly in anyone's face about how rubbish this is. And it is, let's not kind ourselves, especially when pooked at side by side with the 360 version. And you can't possibly take this release in isolation of any other next gen release, it's for the PS3 for goodness' sake, this is supposed As a proud 'Microsoft fangirl', I'll happily whine loudly and proudly in anyone's face about how rubbish this is.

And you can't possibly take this release in isolation of any other next gen release, it's for the PS3 for goodness' sake, this is supposed to be the killer hardward to end all debate, and we get a PS2 game? It looks terrible, plays OK, really glitchy, I hate it and don't know a single other PS3 owner who has this and hasn't been terribly disappointed. As for playability vs graphics, there's a point in saying that graphics don't make a game, but even so, sometimes you just can't get over it enough to leave it behind and enjoy yourself, especially when you've seen what could have been. The 360 version is hardly a masterpiece online, but ut plays brilliantly and so that's OK. But this version looks SO BAD that it just gets in the way of everything else. SO, defensive PS3 owners can take the **** all they like about whining fanwhatevers, but the truth is out there and unavoidable. Expand

    Graphics look cutting edge for a 1996 desktop PC game. This is the only PS3 game that I have played that just isn't any fun. Luckily I bought it for $5 used.

    i did not like this game and i was just not able to get into it and gave up on the story after playing the first mission and was not impressed with the glitches and por sound quality which lagged behind the initial action. once i was finally able to get used to the controls (first game i had for PS3 and was not used to this style of control scheme) i played the terrorist mode and enjoyedi did not like this game and i was just not able to get into it and gave up on the story after playing the first mission and was not impressed with the glitches and por sound quality which lagged behind the initial action. once i was finally able to get used to the controls (first game i had for PS3 and was not used to this style of control scheme) i played the terrorist mode and enjoyed that for a couple play throughs but then got bored and seeing no more play time on it in the near future i traded it in.

    I played this game for a few months, I don't care what anyone says no systems make this game appealing to the eyes. That besides the point, the list of over 200 glitches my clan and I found, mostly from a very poor port job, seems to dissatisfy me even more. But the killer of the whole thing is, ubisoft's hey screw them they paid for it and lets just ignore them and make a newI played this game for a few months, I don't care what anyone says no systems make this game appealing to the eyes.

But the killer of the whole thing is, ubisoft's hey screw them they paid for it and lets just ignore them and make a new rainbow six vegas and call it rainbow six vegas 2? that way they buy the game again and all we have to do is spend a day or 2 changing minor things in the storyline. Very not happy with this game, would have rated it a zero but it has a mute feature in the lobby which cod4 does not. Because of the horrible support, slow motion gameplay, bad graphics, 200+ glitches (231 to be exact), and lack of updates, i just unreserved my copy of haze (which is a whole differn't story), and put ubisoft titles on my do not buy list. Ok now that i am all mad all over again no longer rating it a 3. All these "professional" reviewers said all these good things about this game, makes me wonder if this was their first fps? i mean have they played anything halfway good? (any of the doom series, wolfenstein, resistance fall of man, turok?). Expand

  1. It's more of a straightforward shooter, but it's still gorgeous and the best squad-based shooter for your money on the PS3.
  2. Overall, Rainbow Six: Vegas is pretty much a must buy tactical shooter for PS3 owners.
  3. The enthralling tactical shooter gameplay and adjustable difficulty make it an experience that can be enjoyed by all. Do not bet on black; do not bet on red... take sixty dollars of your hard earned cash and place it on the rainbow. To win. It’s a sure thing.
