Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Lockdown Gameplay Movie 3
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 17
  2. Negative: 7 out of 17
  1. Worthy of the R6 series, solid single-player and multiplayer, good visuals and sound.

    Nicely converted to PC, but has one fatal flaw. The linear levels are too long and feel too similar even when one level is a ship and the second is a terrorist camp in the desert. A tube is a tube is a tube. [Mar 2006]
  3. In terms of customisable play, varied and never-dull multiplayer along with a decent co-op mode, there's no doubt that Lockdown remains an attractive and enjoyable package - but it just feels old.
  4. It does present a good, fun, rowdy terrorist hunt that offers access to detailed weapons you probably won’t find in other games, co-op support, and some interesting multiplayer action, but it’s obvious that they really didn’t bother trying much with the storyline (or just weren’t allocated enough time to put any real detail into it), and the aging graphical tech is really becoming obvious.

    But the sad fact remains, the intense experience we craved is just...gone. [May 2006, p.54]

    Basically, there are just enough tactical elements in Lockdown to ruin it as an action-oriented shooter, and just enough action elements to ruin it as a tactical shooter. [May 2006, p.50]

    It's another throwaway shooter with bad AI, forgettable single player levels, and glib unremarkable multiplayer options. Here lies Rainbow Six. Rest in peace, while we go reinstall "Raven Shield."

    the graphics engine in RB6LD is outstanding. i've read a few bad reviews on the game, and dismiss a lot of it for the graphics alone. ithe graphics engine in RB6LD is outstanding. i've read a few bad reviews on the game, and dismiss a lot of it for the graphics alone. i wasn't sure if the screenshots were going to be very representative of the game when i saw them, but now that i've bought the game and played it everyday for the last week, i must say that the graphics truly are some of the best out right now.

I just hope I catch up fast so that I can get back to playing Lockdown! Expand

    This just doesn't come close to the more recent squad based shooters out there. Yeah it looks superb but the AI of both your squad and This just doesn't come close to the more recent squad based shooters out there. Yeah it looks superb but the AI of both your squad and the enemy is terrible. I've seen my entire squad wiped out by a single enemy who'd strolled up behind them and casually shot them all in the back in turn while not one of them turned around. Alternatively i've gone into many rooms and shot one guy and his mate has just stood facing the wall with his gun down whilst shouting "They're here!" I've watched my squad break open a door and then blind themselves on their own flashbangs. I've been denied the use of the sledgehammer to break open doors because it's apparently been used too much. Why? Has it run out of swing? And what's with the use of tables and scaffolding to block corridors? Surely the world's finest special forces wouldn't be stumped by a piece of furniture? Or unable to duck? And i should just mention the level design. In the old games you always had multiple choices of routes to your objective but here it's completely linear. And the levels don't even make sense half the time. Long sprawling corridors that all look the same and the occasional really dumb thing like a grand staircase that leads down to a brick wall! And just to get really pedantic why don't my bullets smash lights or puncture tyres? They do in Splinter Cell and other older games. If you want to see how a game of this type should be done get yourself a copy of SWAT 4 or SC Chaos Theory. And to the guy who claimed "AI is fantastic" please play FEAR and see just how good AI can be these days. Expand

    This game is a total Joke. The A.I is no where near as good as any of the old games.
