    Very Very disappointing. Not worth half the money. Very short. Not many levels and very limited movements by the character.

    This is a game that could have been so much more given its potential, but it seems that there just wasnt enough time and effort put into the project to make it as enjoyable as it could have been.

Here are a few major problems that brought the game down; the iillogical enemy AI, the 2 second freezing that occurs everytime the player kills an enemy, the low framerate, and the fact that there is no way to heal yourself throughout long missions. First lets talk about the enemy AI. The enemy can be incredibly stupid, and be totally ignorant about the fact that you have just killed his buddy right beside him with a very loud gun. But sometimes, they also seem to have eyes on the back of their heads, and the sound sensitivity of a sonar system. The 2 second freezing right before you drop an enemy makes it even worse. Then theres issue with the inability to heal or refill ammo. Many times i would find myself with the end of the mission just a few inches away..yet i cant make it no matter how many times i restart the checkpoint because i restart with little to no health, or ammo. The graphics could also use alittle work. Try speeding up the frame rate so i dont feel like im in "Robot Chicken" and perhaps add some more detail so that the guns dont all look like a piece of 2-by-4 in 3rd person view. Expand

    good but not great. here's how it works walk into room press button to lock on to bad guy (you can pretty much only lock on as the controls don't really alow for fine shooting) press again for head shot (yeah it actually locks on to their head for you), fire. repeat. then switch to sniper, find bad guys befor they shoot your buddy, aim poorly shoot. fun for a while & milddly good but not great. here's how it works walk into room press button to lock on to bad guy (you can pretty much only lock on as the controls don't really alow for fine shooting) press again for head shot (yeah it actually locks on to their head for you), fire. repeat. then switch to sniper, find bad guys befor they shoot your buddy, aim poorly shoot. fun for a while & milddly entertaining but lacking plenty, the enviorments are rich but unexciting, & the enemy ai is seriously screwed up, one minute the gaurds are braindead (don't belive me walk up behind one & just follow him around he may even pass other gaurds who won't see you behind him & as long as you don't do anything too stupisd they'll never know your there.) the next there super human & will already have there head shots linded up by the time you walk though the door.(though you proubly would't notice if you didn't look to hard & adds an element of fun to the game), & finaly i'm pissed at no health packs (nor recharging health) or the ability to pick up guns at all, not even ammo. & should you choose a bad gun at the wepon selection then too bad your stuck with it. not the best but fun.

    Terrible. This was the first FPS I played on the psp and I was worried. Bland environments, sluggish control, and a not very interesting story had me worried this was maybe the best the little psp could do. Then I picked up the first Syphon Filter game, Dark Mirror, and it blew me away. Especially in comparison. Give thisRainbow 6 a pass. There's better stuff out there by far.

    Over complicated and visually lacklustre - this is a disappointing outing for Rainbow Six. Stick with "Medal of Honor Heroes." [Jan 2007, p.76]
  2. Pure Magazine UK
    50
    A well-implemented control system and great sense of tension make this a joy to play. [Jan 2007, p.50]
  3. A bland, ugly and dreary game - which goes against everything you're used to after playing the series on PS2. There's a certain compulsive quality to sniping but after a couple of levels, you'll develop a strange sense of deja vu and wish you were playing a better shooter.
