DensyD.10What a great game! I've avoided first person shooters since Quake 2 ate up my sophomore year of college, so I bought this game with trepedation... and have been absolutely enthralled with it! What fun! True, I've played on easy - and had a fun time - but it's a marvelous game, with beautiful graphics. I've jumped and dodged around my living room while playing due to the excitement of the scenes! The online play is WAY too cool, also.!!!!… Expand
IanIrvin8As always ubisoft does an incredibly half assed port when compared to the original version (ubisoft is awsome at being the worst porter ever). While many reviewers are saying the PS3 version is the deffinitive one because of extra content, purly from a graphical standpoint the 360 is superior. To those that mentioned the "horrible graphics" I feel I should let you know that ubisoft has confirmed that there is a problem with 1080i/1080p upscaling, YOU MUST DISSABLE 1080I/1080P IN ORDER FOR THIS GAME TO LOOK AT ALL GOOD.
Just an FYI to owners of this game, 720p and lower are the only functional resolutions.
Gameplay is solid and online play is fun, RSV is an awsome game even if it isn't quite as tactical as older RS games.… Expand
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
4I 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.… Expand
