CD-ActionFeb 4, 2016Siege’s multiplayer mode with its hectic pace and unpredictability seems to have a huge e-sport potential but with random teammates is often unplayable. [01/2016, p.52]
Dec 9, 2015Rainbow Six: Siege is one of the better tactical FPS experiences of the year, even with a smaller content offering than most. Microtransactions and limited custom options can muddy it up, but if you enjoy the core gameplay loop, there’s a lot to enjoy here for the multiplayer-minded player.
Dec 6, 2015The tactical demands Siege puts on players is unlike anything else on the console market today, and may prove enough for those seeking this flavor of first-person shooter. However, Siege doesn’t do enough to unite players who understand the importance of communication or provide variation in rest of the package.
Dec 2, 2015Rainbow Six Siege is a game with a couple of good ideas and a lot of fun if the players play with their friends. However, its few maps are a danger for the game that can be forgotten in a few months.
Dec 2, 2015There's no doubt that Rainbow Six Siege tries to offer something new in the competitive FPS genre, and that's something that deserves praise. On the other hand, whatever mode you play in PVE or PVP, what you get is basically the same experience, over and over. The tactics may be interesting, but it's not enough, neither when it comes to unlockables. On top of that, the netcode isn't even nearly refined as the gameplay formula would require.
Nov 30, 2015While lone players are left cold, and hit detection can be inconsistent, the new tactical environmental destruction and tense atmosphere make for a fierce and focused multiplayer experience.
Dec 5, 2015Rainbow Six Siege‘s core concept, namely its destructible world and reliance on communication-based strategy, is strong, but everything surrounding it seems to falter.

Dec 7, 2015I still wish they’d been placed in a more inventive or expressive shell. For all of the wonderful craft on show, Siege doesn’t contain any surprises. It executes its plan to perfection but there’s no room for deviation.

Dec 1, 2015Tom Clancy is turning in his grave. I'm not sure who took over when Tom Clancy passed away but they are doing an awful job trying to cash inTom Clancy is turning in his grave. I'm not sure who took over when Tom Clancy passed away but they are doing an awful job trying to cash in on the legendary writers name. Tom always wanted his name to represent quality and that is why Rainbow Six was always known as a special forces simulator. Every time I played it since childhood I had a blast. Rainbow six is the sole reason that fueled my interest in military life and eventually led me to serve my country.
-The is probably the biggest disappointment of the year for me and probably any fan of the franchise. No single player?! What? Rainbow six always had an amazing single player experience, multiplayer was just an addition. This is by far the biggest negative the game has.
-The game plays like a mix of call of duty and battlefield, this is not a good thing because Rainbow six was always unique in it's own style. It was the arma or flashpoint of special forces. Not a generic shooter.
-The AI is stupid. I haven't seen such useless AI in years, I didn't even think it was possible for developers take so many steps backwards in coding the AI, but rainbow six siege just proves it.
At one moment I was on one side of the room looking at an open door, I see an AI run up and hide beside the door entrance with his arm sticking out in my view. I just pistol his arm till he died. Then a second AI ran up and I did the same.
-The game is a borefest. Like I said it feels like a generic shooter mixed with call of duty. I already played black ops 3 and it was crap, why would I want to play another call of duty type game this year.
-Absolutely no incentive to work as a team. In Rainbow six it was a blast working as a team.
-The levels are boring. Anyone remember Rainbox six vegas? It looked amazing at the time, the attention to detail was phenomenal. Remember looking out the window from the casino beyond the city scape and seeing little cars driving on the road in the distance? Well In siege you won't find that. The maps are boring and bland.
-Destructibility is nothing new, just generally under utilized by game developers because they are lazy. Anyone remember red faction?
-The rifle and pistol sounds, very unrealistic. As someone who has spent a lot of time at the range I can tell you this game actually has worse sounds than call of duty.
All in all, I feel bad that Tom Clancy's name is smeared in this trash game. Please don't buy this just to show them we want a real rainbow six game and not call of duty.… Full Review »
Dec 1, 2015It's a thinking man's shooter. Twitch FPS players look elsewhere. This game is all tactics and I love it. The ones griping about it playIt's a thinking man's shooter. Twitch FPS players look elsewhere. This game is all tactics and I love it. The ones griping about it play instant gratification FPS titles like COD which gets old almost immediately. I won't go on about the details inside the game because I'd rather people discover it for themselves, but if you like hardcore teamwork games, this is high up that tree. I'd suggest you join a clan because pubbing alone is not a viable option. Other than that, it gets a 9/10. I love everything about it, but if it had more maps, it would have a solid 10. Also, I don't care for campaigns, I never play FPS campaigns anymore, they really are all the same.… Full Review »
