  1. If you don't have Xbox Live then you aren't going to get the full package, it's as simple as that.
  2. But the thing that feels most welcoming about Lockdown is the overall level of polish and presentation. Graphically, it's not a massive leap over the previous game, but the textures look crisper and the lighting is way more dramatic. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]
  3. Although some Rainbow Six veterans might not enjoy Lockdown, it's one of the best online games available for the Xbox. Those of you sick of shooting the Covenant should check out Lockdown, because it has a lot to offer.
  4. The sound effects are insane and have a very high level of detail.
  5. All in all still a solid game, and I could see turning in "Black Arrow" for Lockdown.

    most people who play this game dont take the time to learn all the little things that help you out, like hiding spots and out thinking your oponent. kids online coming from halo expect to run strait at someone and kill them without dying themselves and i admit that does work sometimes but its not the way this game is meant to be played.

    Yay, the sluggish look system has been fixed. Boo, all the weapons we know and love have been replaced with weird, futuristic guns that look more like 1950s sci-fi lasers. Too arcadey to be of any use to a RS fan, too real to be of any use to an arcadey fan. Should have just fixed RS3 and Black Arrows problems, made some new missions and added some new guns...not these bulky plastic boxes with barrels, clips, handles and triggers taped to them. And taking over the cheats with some stupid unlock system is the biggest insult. So now if your having trouble, youre pretty much at an impasse as you cant play further to get the points to unlock the cheats you needed...DERP! Full Review »

    First of all. Nerdbikerz, you're a moron. This is the worst Rainbow Six EVER made. Redstorm should be ashamed. Don't buy, in fact, you see it.. Burn it. Full Review »
