    Ubisoft drops another turd. First GRAW for X-box and PS2 now Critical Hour. Ok Rainbow Six lockdown had a crappy single player with retarded a.i. and such. But it also had passable graphics and the multiplayer was decent. Critical Hour sucks all around. The graphics are ghastly and the old missions are ok but just not worth playing through because of the Rainbow six series usual problems. Ubisoft drops another turd.

Critical Hour sucks all around. The graphics are ghastly and the old missions are ok but just not worth playing through because of the Rainbow six series usual problems. The a.i. is worse than usual, the graphics are worthless. Simply put the game is no fun but luckily the campaign is short. Ok so the online will be redeeming right? WRONG! The multiplayer is broken. There are numerous glitches and players can cheat to level up. The graphics obviously still suck. There are no redeeming factors for Critical Hour. Ubisoft is really leaving the current gen consoles with a band. At least they had the decency to charge less for this game but no amount of money is worth Critical hour. Keep playing Lockdown people.

    This game is worth a renta no morel, it's the same thing as lockdown, only this time your background has gone red..d'ah!. Graphics are simply bad, cheap. AI still dumb, always the same outfit, and what is going on with the clancy series? it's all a big let down...just a way to sucker in more cash. We need to stop encouraging bad games.

  1. It's bound to happen sooner or later. Critical Hour serves up an uninspired gameplay and dull visuals, which had all the signs of a rushed title.
  2. Critical Hour just isn't going to get much playtime from me anymore. It's fine to rent for a weekend, but you're doing yourself better by getting an Xbox 360 and playing "Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter" in wait for "Rainbow Six: Vegas."
  3. The emphasis was put back on "one shot kills", but it is still too easy to run-and-gun with this level of enemy intelligence. Commanding squad mates is cool, but this just doesn't feel like the Rainbow Six we once knew.
