  1. 8 / 7 / 7 / 7 - 29 [Vol. 848]
  2. Unfortunately, like its prequel, Black Arrow's single-player campaign is still a collection of trial-and-error missions that require you to memorize the location of every hostage and enemy while perfecting your run through linear levels. [Sept 2004, p.93]
  3. Like the last game, your team really isn't all that widely effective and functional, inevitably creating a feeling of going through the motions on autopilot; but more complex AI routines and better scripted scenarios do definitely help. [Aug 2004, p.57]

    Awsome game with great weapons, and a not so bad squad. Although one of the people on your team dies really quickly, the graphics are good, Awsome game with great weapons, and a not so bad squad. Although one of the people on your team dies really quickly, the graphics are good, and the missions are intense, overall, a steler game. Full Review »

    OK, I should point out that if you have not played any of the earlier RS6 games then take this rating as a 8.5. If you played the first then OK, I should point out that if you have not played any of the earlier RS6 games then take this rating as a 8.5. If you played the first then you would have to be quite serious to go out and get this one. The game play, voices and about 85% of the game is nearly the same as the first version. In my opinion its really an extra 10 levels to play onto of the first version but nothing overly new. The AI is pretty much average. You can shoot a terrorist dead and the terrorist right next to him with still stand completely still so that you can pot him off as well given that he should have run or hid after his mate hit the floor. Don't get me wrong, still great game play and good graphics but this game should have moved above the benchmark set in the first version. As such, its kept it at the same level. Full Review »
