    Not only is Rainbow Six Extraction a great cooperative shooter, it also differentiates itself from most of the competition by promoting a more tactical, reasoned approach: the Archean threat is not to be underestimated, as things are always a poor decision away from turning sour for your team. It’s a real shame that you have to unlock almost everything though, difficulty levels included.

    The greatest strong point of Extraction is undoubtedly to succeed in brilliantly mixing two distinctly different universes: on the one hand, the ultra-calculated military aspect of the Rainbow Six saga and, on the other, the tireless fashion of infected (or zombies) which has been attacking our favorite hobby for years.

    Rainbow Six Extraction really is what its description says it is. A stealth shooter spin-off of Siege. Although it's played comfortably solo or with random players online however the experience takes off when the party is planned, and team tactics can be unfolded in really many alternative ways. It may suffer in the variety aspect, both in enemies and mission design, but given the different approaches depending on the operator and the random distribution of objectives it's sure to keep even the least relevant to the genre glued for several hours.

    Rainbow Six Extraction is a bold game for the Tom Clancy brand that jumps head-first into an over-the-top, absurd mix of horror, sci-fi, and military realism. It does at times feel more like a Siege DLC than a stand-alone game, but it’s a solid option for players not interested or intimidated by Siege's intense PvP community. There are several interesting design decisions meant to encourage teamwork and decision making in each missions, though I’m not sure if there will be enough variety without PvP to keep players hooked long-term.

    Rainbow Six Siege’s co-op oriented spin-off is an enjoyable alternative that closely resembles its cousin in terms of gameplay but puts more emphasis on action. The game is quite rich in content and offers a distinct change of atmosphere but unfortunately fails to properly reward cooperation between players and has some balancing issues.

    As a Rainbow Six Siege spin-off it’s fun to see all of the gadgets and mechanics of that game make their way over into the co-op space. The gun-feel is also on point. The ease at which you can throw out a recon drone or line up a head-shot through a wall is endlessly satisfying. And with all of its tactical stealthiness, Extraction plays unlike anything else we’ve seen in the co-op space. Unfortunately, it’s not enough to give the experience a true identity it can call its own.

    Rainbow Six Extraction might be one of the most trite co-op shooters of recent memory. Testament to the fact that making an enjoyable PvE shooter is a little harder than simply rehashing a seasonal event, it's hard to see where the effort went. Shallow, scant, and lacking any soul whatsoever, it's as bland as the black goo that adorns its promotional material.

    Been playing with a friend and solo for the past 2 days. The experience is great so far.

    I love the mechanics of Rainbow Six Siege and using them in a coop PvE setting is very fun. At higher difficulty levels, the game can get pretty challenging while maintaining the fun factor. Although this feels more like an expansion of RS Siege, the game is cheaper than a full release and I feel it’s worth every penny. Worse case scenario, as another reviewer said, grab the PC Game Pass trial and make your own opinion of this game.

The 12 maps are divided in 4 bioms, they are vary and sizable indoors with outdoor sections. The operators come straight from Siege with their abilities sometimes adjusted for the PVE nature of the game. Every week there are 2 modes that reset . One of theme is the maelstrom protocol , this is really challenging and communication is a must, the great part of this mode is the opportunity to complete a challenge to claim premium credit to be used in the store, credit that usually is locked behind real money! With the credits you can unlock new cosmetics specific for this mode. I'm really enjoying my time with this game and it's a nice break from PVP games. I'm looking forward for new content that will come for free in the future . Expand
