  • Summary: The PSP version features exclusive new content and all-new characters as Las Vegas finds itself in chaos and Rainbow operatives are forced to defend one of the most recognizable cities in the world. The future of Las Vegas and global security is in your hands... will you be able to save Vegas? New Team, New Location – Two new Rainbow operatives enter the impending doom that is Las Vegas as their console brethren, Keller, Park and Walter, simultaneously work against the clock to save "Sin City." As Brian Armstrong, work as a field operative and assault expert, taking down tangos from the ground floor.

  1. Rainbow Six Vegas is a fine portable shooter.
  2. 78
    Sadly it's a little too short with a lack of replay value, but you'd be hard pushed to find a title with better production values on the PSP. [Issue#156, p.85]
  3. I totally enjoyed the new characters, new parallel storyline, new locations, and exciting gameplay. Sure it was too easy at times, but there were also some areas where things got downright nasty, but in the end, Vegas on the PSP is a great addition to the Rainbow franchise.
  4. In the graveyard of first-person shooters for the PSP, Rainbow Six Vegas is just one more for the crap-heap.
  5. Over complicated and visually lacklustre - this is a disappointing outing for Rainbow Six. Stick with "Medal of Honor Heroes." [Jan 2007, p.76]
  6. Goes all-in with its action-packed shooter gameplay, but a short campaign, limited multiplayer support, and a stack of shortcomings call its bluff.
  7. Movement is on the analogue nub, camera controls on the face buttons. It's a system that has worked okay for other PSP shooters, but there's a stiffness here that makes it feel more like Super Treacle Squad than a simulation of impeccably-trained Special Ops.
