    I would say that this is the worst 1st person shooter I've tried on Xbox. The graphics are inconsistently good. There'll be some awesome shadows and textures, and yet terrible ones (n64 quality) elsewhere. The team gameplay is reasonably well done, but I don't find it exciting having to babysit a gaggle of squadmates. The gameplay is very deliberate and slow paced.

The team gameplay is reasonably well done, but I don't find it exciting having to babysit a gaggle of squadmates. The gameplay is very deliberate and slow paced. Most of the environmental objects aren't interactive like other modern fps'. The biggest thing that bugged me about RS3 is that they didn't bother to include any type of offline multiplayer. So for the majority of people who don't have xbox live there's just the lame single player game. So to sum up, the gameplay is slow and unexciting, the graphics are below average, and there's not much replay value. Expand

    The game achieves excellence through realism, feel, and transparent interface. [Mar 2004, p.88]
  3. GMR Magazine

    What really sets it apart from other first-person shooters, though, is the attention to technical and tactical detail, as well as the skill it demands from the player. [Jan 2004, p.78]
