    Stakes and tensions run high whether playing solo or in a group, but the game truly shines when you’re working with a coherent team, so pick this game up and find one.

    Despite including several different game types and modes, Ubisoft clearly designed Rainbow Six Siege with a very specific kind of player in mind. If you have an abundance of patience, fortitude, and maybe a few gamer friends you can wrangle up, Siege could be just the tactical shooter experience you’re looking for. If you’re looking for a fun game you can kick back with and enjoy in a more casual way, you might want to look elsewhere.

    Despite its flaws, Rainbow Six: Siege has emerged as one of the strongest FPS titles of the year.

    The gameplay is solid as a rock; super intense, exciting and porn for the tactical shooter fan. But the game quickly loses its power when you stray among the other game modes, which are limited and lacking good AI. This is what they call: too little content for too much money.

    Rainbow Six: Siege delivers on what it promised to be: a well-made, multiplayer-focused, team shooter. To criticize it for not having a stronger single player experience is accusing it of a pretense it never made, and consumers will decide whether the product has broad enough appeal to warrant its price.

    Rainbow Six Siege is a good FPS at its gameplay core thanks to good level design, but the lack of content and imprecise controls makes it a completely forgettable game.

    Tactical action with potential -or one great game mode- but at the cost of the full game these are the two faces of the new Rainbow Six. [Issue #259]

Twenty different special operators each bringing there own skill set for great variety. This is easily THE FPS to play, better than the competition. It looks great, sounds great and handles great. It's a pull no punches approach to a genre that has left its roots in realism for something to science fiction as of late. The matches are tight and intense and at any moment can shift from winning to losing if you are careful. The maps are fully interactive with security cameras to get the drop on your opponents to breachable walls to create your own path. Plenty of room for a large variety of strategies on both sides, so whether your attack or defense you and your team can create a style all your own. So if you like a seriously intense game play rooted in reality answer the call and join Rainbow6!! Expand

    This game may not be a ten, but i am giving it one to boost its score past a seven which is far too low for it. Something about the intenseThis game may not be a ten, but i am giving it one to boost its score past a seven which is far too low for it. Something about the intense combat in this game keeps me coming back to it. If you are a battlefield or cs fan or maybe both this is the perfect game for you. There is much more to see do and unlock then what may seem there at first and the combat stays fresh throughout. The only complaint I have lays with the matchmaking still and the fact that I still sometimes experience bouts of matchmaking that go on for far too long than it should take to find 10 people playing the same game.

Those who want a realistic experience with a tactical shooter. The 'realistic' difficulty is just that,realistic. You need a plan when you start a mission or you will die,there is no question. It takes planning and quick thinking.
    The sound design is where this game really shines. Hearing the terrorists making plans and scurrying above you and through the walls is an intense experience. It's an anxious feeling that is similar to survival horror games.

    Graphically the game holds up well. Its not amazing but it showcases its talents when it needs to. The destruction in the game is a step above any other shooters that claim destructible environments.
    If you are the lone wolf type like me, you will have fun with the tutorials,aka 'situations' that lead up to opening the multiplayer portion of the game. I played the levels on realistic difficulty and it was incredibly hard but not frustrating. It was hard because the game was better than I was. It's not attributed to the game being unfair.
    So do yourself a favor,go buy the game,buy some surround sound headphones,turn the lights off and start planning your attack. Its for real.

There are occasional hitboxThis game was among the first I purchased for PlayStation 4. I absolutely love the gameplay, but it has issues. There are occasional hitbox issues and occasional lack of notification for damage taken. Siege also has very little single-player aspects. Single player is limited to 11 missions, which are essentially tutorials. Also, microtransactions, Awful business technique that is used for XP boosters, gun skins, and "renown," which is used to unlock characters and weapon attachments. The.The multiplayer is great, especially for those who love teamwork. This works for and against the game, as playing with randoms can be frustrating and game-ruining. On the other hand, if you have friends, or work well enough with random people, the game shines at its brightest. In the end, astoundingly well enacted forced teamwork and great emphasis on tactical play make the game a very fun experience to be shared, but lackluster when alone. Expand

Guns handle andThis is a very good and the most realistic shooter on PS4, most map design is so detailed that allows umlimited possibilities. Guns handle and sound awesome, each match feel so intense even the gameplay is not fast like call of duty I personally think it is way more exciting and I prefer this type of tactical shooter. If you have friends who play with you coop this is one of the best experience you will get, the setting of counter terrorism is just Cool!
    It is very disappointing though it has some unnecessary flaws, without a singleplayer campaign it feels it is lacking a lot of contents and Ubisoft had been lazy.. I played Rainbow Six Raven Shield back then it had an awesome campaign each mission had detailed background and briefings, even 12 years ago had AI teamates to play with you singleplayer. The most IMPORTANT issue is that the Terrorist Hunt mode (which I only cares about as I don't enjoy multiplayer) drops to 30 Frames per second on PS4. I expected a 60 Frame smooth movement as advertised, I wonder why they couldn't make it into 60frames in such a small map.. Even Battlefield could handle 60 frames in 64 player matches. Apart from this me and my mate had problem choosing maps, we thought we can't choose maps in matchmaking. There is actually a hidden setting in options you could turn off what maps you don't want to play, they should have made it more obvious..
    Overall I really love this style of game, in recent years FPS had been all about sci-fi and I am glad to see a realistic shooter back out here, great game with lots of potential.
