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. Expand

    Finally FPS which requires usage of brain unlike some retarded CoD or one of the million CoD clones.
    Awesome maps, destructible environment, great weapons, unlocks etc. GOTY material.

But definitely not worth your $60 right now. Issues include laggy servers; buggy netcode; limbs poking through walls (leading to stupid deaths with many cheating accusations); not receiving any renown (credits used to unlock characters) or XP after matches; the annoying (standard now) ubisoft payment plan, $60 for an incomplete game, then charge for credits to buy extra items and boosters to help unlock characters or items. There are so many little and large issues that I can't recommend anyone to buy it at the moment. It's a REALLY fun game, when it works. But it's really infuriating with some of the issues that the developers failed to iron out after the closed, or open beta stages of development.

    Also, f**k ubisoft. You get around 300 renown/match, and you usually don't even get any XP or Renown from matches, due to a really annoying bug, and the ops (characters) start at 500, going up in increments of 500 up to around 2500 (I think.) It takes absolutely forever to unlock all 20 ops at this rate.

    Anyways, the gameplay is great. If they fixed the netcode, and the annoying little bugs, I'm sure it could be a contender for CS:GO.

    Tom 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.

    R6: Siege is Ubisoft's attempt to kill two birds with one stone by reviving a previously established IP and using a fast pass ticket into the competitive e-sports industry with one title. In doing so all they have established is that they can make games that are flawed by technical faults that heavily detract from an otherwise enjoyable experience.
    You assume the role as one of 33 playable operators, each with a unique and distinguished special ability, and play alongside four other players in 5v5 multiplayer attack versus defend game modes. Round are respawn-free, meaning if you die, you're out until the next round.
    Multiplayer is where this game is significantly flawed, which on further inspection is a big concern considering that this game is a multiplayer game.
    A reporting functionality does exist, something that is a must have for every multiplayer game, but despite this, it never seems to actually do anything. This is partially due to the consistent influx of hackers that swarm multiplayer games throughout the year, and also down to the fact that users reporting other players don't receive any form of communication on what action was eventually taken on the reported player, if any was taken at all!
    The matchmaking system is inherently flawed, and new players can expect themselves to be paired up with other new players against a team full of people that should be competing for thousands of dollars in the competitive pro league.
    The game is also riddled with bugs and glitches; some of which are addressed, but most of which are described as 'identified by the development team' and no more. So much so that they even skipped a whole DLC to provide a 'season long' (3 months) period of updates exclusively aimed at fixing issues, which was aptly named 'Operation Health'. Many players (including myself) will tell you that although this season fixed many bugs, for every bug that was fixed, another 10+ were introduced.
    It is evident by all of these attempts that Ubisoft are trying to fix this game to a point where it would excel at being a great tactical multiplayer shooter, but seasoned game design veterans like themselves should know that simply trying is not enough to meet today's industry expectation.
    As with most Ubisoft games, they try to emphasize the highly accurate and realistic visual graphics. What actually happened at launch was a terrible mess of broken lighting in nearly every inch of your screen, and textures that simply didn't live up to the expectations that Ubisoft themselves set during their E3 demo.
    As time has gone on, they have got much better, and the next update promises to improve the overall graphical quality of the game, so I have no real basis to fault them on in the graphics department writing today in 2017. Had I been writing this review a year ago, we may have seen a different story being presented.
    Player progression is an aspect of R6: Siege that I often find being misinterpreted by reviewers who haven't explored the game far enough to understand how player progression actually works. Ubisoft offers two versions of the game, the starter edition, and the standard edition. This pricing model allows gamers who aren't completely sold on the game to purchase a cheaper version where they don't instantly start with a large collection of operators (classes) to play with. They can then choose to unlock these operators with in-game currency, which cannot be purchased with real life money. This is a great move by Ubisoft which allows all players, independent of financial capacity, to experience all of the different operators in the game.
    Gameplay mechanics are where Rainbow Six: Siege properly excels. Players can use RC drones with built in cameras to scope out areas of the map before engaging, and many operators have different traps and gadgets to apply a multitude of effects (both positive and negative) to players who happen to stumble across them, ranging from concussion mines to toxic smoke canisters. These mechanics provide a fun and unique playing experience with a map that is dynamically changing throughout the round, promoting players to think on their feet and adapt to the present situation. This plays well into the re-playability of the game; you are almost guaranteed to never have a match that plays out in a predictable scenario that you have experienced before.
    Options menus are where most PC games fall very short of the mark, but R6: Siege is an exception to this. The game features a highly extensive yet immensely intuitive settings screen, and good news for some gamers, the game features out-of-the-box ultrawide 21:9 aspect ratio support. The 'Ultra HD texture pack' that they offer, which is more than 20 gigabytes in size, doesn't seem to offer any form of improvement to the graphics unless you're using a fancy Dell 8K monitor, but heavily decreases the frame rate of the game, so unless you want to be the very best, you'll probably want to pass on that option.

    This is an amazing game with elements where CSS was not able to achieve. Current CSGO is very poor vs dynamics and tactics from R6: Siege. I highly recommend R6: Siege. Every new DLC with operators brings new tactics and new style of the game in general

But now, way more people than before start calling people different spellings of the n word to get around the ban, where before almost no-one used anything of that sort. And, there are people tricking other people into saying banned words, and I got tricked, and I was banned for 30 minutes (not too bad) and lost a ranked match and put my team at a huge disadvantage since it kicked me out. I would give this game an 8 or a 9 but because of how toxic the community has gotten after they implemented a horrible toxicity filter, I'm giving this game a 1. No other game immediately bans you for using a bad word. They often block your ability to chat for a while, or will replace those words with something else. But Siege just goes and bans you, even if you didn't mean to say it and were tricked. Also, if you type to someone to bring frags (frag grenades) and forget to type the r, you're banned. No way to undo the ban. And, I think that ban prevents you from refunding the game on Steam, so if you're tricked into saying something and you get banned, and you don't like the game, you're stuck with it. Also, there are words I've never even knew were toxic such as "c**n" (replace * with o.) And, in ranked, there are huge amounts of cheaters because Ubisoft hasn't updated the anti-cheat in a while. Overall, I would wait to get this game until this is all resolved. Expand

    My biggest problem with R6S is the amount of pointless restrictions and omissions in the game.

    Defenders can block doors and use remote explosives but don't get shields, flashbangs or decent DMRs; attackers are not allowed to use the heartbeat sensor or block the doorways behind them. There are no destructible light sources or thermal scopes. Even though there are cameras in the game,
    My biggest problem with R6S is the amount of pointless restrictions and omissions in the game.

    Defenders can block doors and use remote explosives but don't get shields, flashbangs or decent DMRs; attackers are not allowed to use the heartbeat sensor or block the doorways behind them. There are no destructible light sources or thermal scopes. Even though there are cameras in the game, motion detection alarms are not an option. It's as if Ubisoft were trying to make Counter-Strike with mutually exclusive classes instead of a proper next gen squad tactical game with customizable loadouts.

    While the maps are decent, they also have an element of luck to them, with some positions being easy to defend and some downright atrocious for any mode, and the position itself being random and not changeable (can't move the hostage/container/bombs). Getting the short end of the stick is never fun.

    And mechanically it's not very fun either. Instead of deployables being placeable via their projected model like in many other games, R6S forces the operator to shuffle back and forth until they magically raise their hands into the 'can deploy' position. It's not realistic, it's deliberately crippled control. Of course, barbed wire, bear traps and whatnot can not be placed on stairs, no, sir. Only on flat surfaces with at least a meter of free space behind them (for the operative to stand when deploying). All the traps, even the mechanical ones, have IFF, e.g. the barbed wire doesn't slow down allies. MAGIC!

    When the game works, it feels good. Yet, most of the time it just feels like "Game1 and Game2 did this so much better" and makes me wish for far more freedom in choosing loadouts and doing things.

    I would like to state that you will not get used to playing if you are alone or even there are 4 people, because the usage areas of operators are so wide. Gather your 5 friends and play the game more effectively. So, you can play in a much more coordinated way if you have 5 friends in a team. In the simplest case, if the operators in the team are not the kind that support each other, the game becomes unbalanced.

    The vanilla operators are also very good, but the Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 operators are well balanced with each other. It can take some time to learn and get used to the main equipment that all operators have. Do not break your morale while playing that moment.

    The community of the game is worst! Not all of them, but almost 85% are worst. I can write pages about it. I don't even want to mention. So, I will pass that part... Sorry.

    If you are playing the highest graphical texture in this game so that the graphics are good, there is no point in telling you. The game is a tactical based game and it does not even take 5 minutes. So do not do this for a 5-minute pleasure. It also causes the game to load late. If there is a difference between the pleasure you feel during sex and the pleasure you feel at the peak, there is such a difference. If you continue playing, of course you can increase graphical quality and even download Hihg-Res Textures from the store page. But if you like to play in casual like me, you do not even have to.

The weapons are interesting and have plenty of variety and the formula is solid. I have put quite some time into it and sometimes its great.
    The problems come from the community. I dont really have gamer friends so I play casual, i have never played a single ranked game. Unfortunately the game is really biased towards groups. It is really clear when you come up against a team who talk and know each other as they just destroy the other team. Which is not a bad thing in itself, but when you are in a team of randoms is is a gamble which rarely pays off. You often end up in games with some of the most obnoxious people you could expect, who abuse the vote kick because they are bored or scream and rant because you didnt do what they wanted. Despite the fact that they never talk about plans, you are just expected to do everything for them. Team kills are rife and i dont mean accidental ones when people just walk into your firing line. Expect to be killed by your own team on 3/5 matches, either for not being telepathic or just for being the first one they see.
    If the game takes a minute to load, because it wont start until the whole player count are fully loaded up and ready (a good thing), then get ready to see a chat full of unnecessary and offensive nonsense.
    The calibre of your random team mates goes downhill drastically when school is out, a clear difference. to the point that i wont play evenings or weekends just because it is not fun.
    Ubisoft seem to take half hearted attempts to stem the toxicity but it makes no difference. For a while they were banning all over the place for toxic behaviour and the game became a nicer place for it, then they let up and its back to being unpleasant again. In my opinion they should be policing the game better in some way, it is a really high profile game and they should be making a point with it.

    if you have a good group of friends then i imagine this game is awesome. The game itself is great, well supported and kept fresh and interesting. If it wasnt for the free reign of trolls and toxicity its would be an 8-9 for me, which i think is a real shame.

    Gameplay wise this game is great, shooting feels nice, tactical options are giving a nice touch to your usuall run and kill. Thinking is almost as important as good aim.

    Unfortunatly matchmaking is a joke so at first you will be crushed by veteran players, either high level/rank or smurf accounts. This game is half made of smurf accounts. Strating from lvl 20 you may play rankeds where low ranking players will be much closer to your lvl of skill. This brings another problem as veteran players expect you to know maps etc.

    Toxic comunity is middle name of this game. You gonna be yelled at, and they gonna rage on chat. Occasionally you will be kicked or teamkilled. Its normal. That said there are also nice people in this game, generally based on my experience in Europe, 25% are toxic, 10% are nice, and rest simply doesnt give a **** Playing casual means nothing, they rage all the same.
    Game is also plauged by bugs. Every now and then im throwed out from mm because "The game you are trying to join is full." One day i couldnt play at all because mm wasnt working at all, so i couldnt find a match.

    Netcode and hitboxes are a big flaw too, sometimes it registers hits strangly, you see that you or enemy was aiming in one place and bullets fall in another (im talking about single shoots no recoil included). Sometimes in a death cam i can see that enemy is standing not where i saw him on my screen.

    Game isnt cheap at least by my standards, you buy this game and still have to unlock operatos. I bought starter edition as i dont mean a little grind. Time to unlock one basic op is around 10 hours. On standard edition it is much faster and takes up to one hour.

    As for fixing this game by ubi, I simply dont believe they are able to. Developers are working slowly, which can be a good thing, but they are workign to slowly. Most of bugs i have been experiencing are in this game from begining. When i bought this game about 2 week ago i got 2 free ops instead of 6. I contacted ubi support, but they werent able to fix this. So if they cant fix missing operators i doubt they can fix netcode etc. Most of problems are persent because of using Anvil engine, known from AC series, it doesnt work in multiplayer shooter with destructable objects.

    After considering all of the above i can give 5 out of 10. If all of the problems would be removed we would have 9/10 tactical shooter, sadly i doubt it will ever happen.

    Game is epic... but technical aspect of this game is rubbish. Servers, ghost algorithm, match making, make this game one of the worst I played in my life and also best game ever (idea of tactical fps). When you rich point of skill where you know the maps and operators, technical part will make this game so bad, that you will jump to another one. Overall bad game!

    There's no requirements for getting into ranked, and the devs spam free-weekends so often that it's about as bad as finding servers full of 12-year-olds who just learned how to turn a computer on.

    There's a lot you can say about Siege that is positive, but the developers, even during this "operation health" project that they've claimed will improve the game, are never fixing the critical issues that make the game have no incentive for you to even try and play.

    A few examples:
    It takes 10 games to get a rank assigned in Ranked mode. The game rigs the 10 games so you are almost always with randoms and usually other unranked players, but rarely against other unranked players and usually organized teams.
    Upon being ranked, you will be given a poor rank thanks to this even if you perform well (Because the rank system is extremely volatile and even if you get 30 kills, losing is still that punishing), and you will begin waiting 10-15 minutes for a game because it now refuses to put you with anyone other than those at said horrendous ranks, but the game will continue to tell you that you will only wait 1 -2 minutes, and will continue blatantly lying at all times.
    There's no requirements for people to have before playing Ranked, so people jump straight into Ranked and ruin it for everyone else after just learning the keybinds in on game of casual. This is a problem with the community, but it's one that is critical and fixable by the devs.

    The only reason this game hasn't become as horrendous as Counter Strike Global Offensive is because, unlike Valve, they haven't started banning people for complaining on the forums. Yet.

    Rainbow Six: Siege fits a missing hole in multiplayer FPS games of which I've been searching for quite some time: a hardcore, squad based close quarters experience. You may be thinking that Counterstrike offers this too, but the experiences are very different.

    Rainbow Six Siege provides a very interesting dynamic between the two teams: the defenders hold a position of extreme control over the attackers, who spend their time slowly wresting control from the defenders, either through direct confrontation or taking their resources apart.

    The difference between the two teams is striking: the defenders have access to fixed position CCTV that offers a huge amount of visibility in a fixed-- and easily destroyed position-- whilst the attackers have access to drones, which offer mobile visibility but from the level of a small rodent, affording the attackers less direct information but the ability to see any part of the area. The defenders are given time to set traps, put up barricades and attempt to funnel the movements of the attackers into specific chokepoints, whilst the attackers are given flashbangs, explosives and longer range weapons to shoot into the buildings.

    This set up creates a lot of tension, as defenders feel like homeowners experiencing a break in whilst the attacking team feel like unwelcome invaders in a hostile world, which has helped to create one of the most intense multiplayer experiences I've had in a while.

    The slower, more methodical pace required by both sides and reliance on information and teamwork creates a solid experience, but one which requires a few friends and a teamspeak/discord server. Playing which a matchmade team just does not work as well, as many will be averse to using the microphone and so information is not distributed to the team fast enough.

    Graphically, the game is serviceable: weapons tear up scenery, explosions and smoke pop off all around you and lights reflect across the floor as you make your way through the match. This is great, but the graphics can sometimes feel a little flat, which can make distinguishing between the many different operators relatively difficult.

    The audio design is where the game comes into it's own. You will quickly find yourself relying on the various sounds heard throughout the level, from the zipping noise of a rappel to the heavy footed running of an enemy above you locating the objective. All of these instill a sense in more experience players and create some very tense moments: in a recent game I was sprinting toward a hostage when the floor below and wall to the side of me erupted into a hell of bullets as two enemies had picked up my footsteps.

    The destructible environments of the game are top-notch. Walls blow apart, barricades are destroyed and hastily rebuilt and bullets fly through soft surfaces, creating another level to the map design and engagements felt throughout.

    Though the game is not perfect due to difficulties playing when friends are not around and the graphics can make things less clear than they could be, I would still recommend picking this game up in any sale.

    Probably my favorite online shooter that came out in 2015. Has a similar feel of Counter Strike mixed with some Battlefield. I would rate this much higher than an 8 if it wasn't for some bugs and server issues. (Seriously they should let us host our own servers).

    But the gameplay and map designs are solid. Kudos Ubi, you made a game I am willing to buy from you.

And they are found amongst the majority of players, and you can find those in pretty much any negative review for this game:
    - awful netcode with random delays and discrepancies between what you see and what you actually get, even with 40 hours to actually understand whats going on, and experience everything, that developers **** up.

    In short - dont buy it now. Read reviews later down the update line, 2-3 updates/patches in. See if most of these problems are fixed, and if they are - then go for it, you'll have a lot of fun.

    It's a simple multiplayer game with no real single player mode.

    While I think Battlefield could be more tactical, R6 is just too limited for me.
    Despite the various operators (20) and maps (15) for now, the gameplay is quite repetitive.

    Absolutely fantastic game. As I read in another review, it's a "thinking man's shooter" for sure.

Essentially, if the older Rainbow Six games, CS: GO and Dota were all merged into one, that would be Siege.

    There are customisable loadouts, attachments to add to your weapons, completely altering their statistics (recoil, flash hiders, angled grips giving you quicker ADS transitions etc.). If you like competitive multiplayer games, you're doing yourself a disservice by not trying it out. In my opinion, this is now the only competitive shooter worth playing. Period. The maps, too, are full of detail with so many avenues to explore and ways to breach your objective.

    I'd advise playing with friends, however, or at least using a mic as this game is heavily team-oriented and you will certainly suffer playing online without one.

    --

    That said, it's not perfect. There are a few issues such as semi-auto shotguns having too much range, a couple silly operator buffs such as Pulse's heartbeat scanner - but all in all, this game is fantastic. Surprisingly, the devs have given it patch after patch - something you definitely don't expect from Ubisoft, considering their post-release support generally leaves much to be desired. So for this reason, I have no doubt everything will be sorted (Pulse and semi-autos get nerfed this month so the perfect game will then become godlike).

    Kudos to the community manager, 'Its_Epi' as well, for being as responsive and communicative as his position allows.

    Is this what we expect for $60? It functions like Insurgency's autistic cousin. It tries to cover up it's horrible graphics with the most extreme case of Motion Blur I've ever seen. The AI will shoot you through walls with 100% accuracy (then instantly troll you with a killcam). Guns have no recoil/uniqueness. You can only destroy objects/walls marked as destructable (not some Red Faction contender as lauded). Servers plainly don't work. No single player. 40% of the unique content requires microtransactions AT LAUNCH, feels like Game of War. R6 bucks my a $$.

    Multiplayer had the potential to be a fun $20 game on it's own, but it's lack of competition modes other than Attack/Defend make it absurdly over priced.

    A total bust. Thanks for the refund Steam.

    - Players who do not communicate or cooperate with their team are often a liability

    To all the players comparing this game with Vegas: This is NOT Vegas. Just because it doesn't have the same features of one game doesn't make it a terrible game. Siege wasn't designed with 3rd person in mind. 3rd person would grant campers a huge advantage. In Siege, one must rely on their senses to determine enemy position, i.e. footsteps in the next room, someone walking through barbed wire, etc. These minute features are what make this game such a fantastic tactical squad-based shooter. You have to strategize with your team, accurately execute plans to complete the objective or fail together.

    This isn't for the COD player looking for quick-kill gratification. You won't find anyone sprinting across the map with guns blazing. That'll only get you killed. In fact, sprinting creates so much noise you'll quickly find yourself watching your corpse get teabagged via killcam.

    My one and only gripe with the game as of release are the bugs. Hopefully Ubisoft can fix these soon.

    This is very much like any other traditional Rainbow 6. The explosive environments add so much challenge and tacticle planning. The only thing that keeps this game from getting a 10/10 is that they didn't include local co-op and a tps cover system this time. If you like games like Socom, Unit13, Ghost Recon, Swat, Counter Strike, or anything related to armed forces/ espionage, this is a dream come true.

    The matchmaking simply does not work. There is no server browser. There are 10 maps (that play exactly the same whether you play at day or night, since the core of the gameplay is focused on the INSIDE of the buildings) - 20 characters to chose from, that can't go through any progress, as there simply is no progression ingame. That's it. Roughly 3 modifications that are basically all the same and once you have unlocked everything (took me 20 hours for all modifications + all operators) then you're done with the game basically.

    -As i said numerous times now, this is an incredibly dumbed down version of the previous Rainbow six games. Remember when you had to find out where the enemy was and you had to check every door to make sure you don't get ambushed..... Well **** that **** in this game you just gotta send a little beacon thingy and it tells every enemy position to you. For Christ's sake if i wanna find out where the enemy is without effort i might as well cheat.
    -Another thing is the guns. Yeah they all look and sound great but hey just don't feel powerful. Remember in the previous games (especially in the first 3 Rainbow six games) when you got a new gun it really packed a punch. Here they just feel like pee shooters.

    Okay i think that's enough ranting for me. I am just disappointed that i never got what i was promised. I was hoping for some fun and strategic gameplay but instead i got Rainbow six for 12 year olds. It is sad really.

    The realism is there where 1 or 2 shots will kill but the netcode and/or hit detection is fuzzy as hell. Watching replays it's infuriating when even the replay shows the bullet "hits" not actually hitting you.

    The graphics are mediocre and are below what AAA titles provide these days.

    All and all the game would be great at about half the price it is currently. The game could be heading towards pre-mature obscurity with a dwindling playerbase. Hopefully they fix the price so more players can come in.

Graphics are pretty heavily outdated, and in game actions are painfully ugly. Why can one side pick up barbwire, but the other can't? Who smashes barb wire with the butt of a gun? Who disarms a bomb with a butt of a gun? All these things make the game feel incomplete, rushed, and just pretty darn fake which takes you out of the immersion that it was designed to be. Lastly, content to price is far far FAR off! Wait until after Christmas, then pick it up for $19.99.

Trying to hit someone with single shots while they are running is also a lottery. Either you are lucky and hit the spot where the game things the guys is, or the guy just runs away (while you clearly hit him in the back with your sniper rifle). That's the biggest problem the game has. There is also problem with clipping. When you lie down near a wall, quite often there is an enemy on the other side who can see your legs or head clipping through the wall.

    By playing all the closed and an open beta, along with the release on day 1, all I can say is: most issues were fixed, gameplay is vivid, action plays out great, i love the graphics, map design, and overall depth that the game has. Cons? Ye, there are few of them. Hitboxes, lack of single player campaign. But... I dont mind. Love the game so far.

    Very hardcore and tactical gameplay - quite punishing if you're up against a good team -- picked it up for around 30USD - so not fussed about value for money;
    A bit of a shame that there is no story line and multiple loadouts -- def. not worth $60+ like some people are paying

Although there are still micro-transactions, I give props to Ubi for free DLC maps and operators. Overall I think this is a strong shooter that will get better in the coming months. Expand

Of course, there are things I question should be in the game, such as the online market for pay2get stuff (like $29 season pass that unlocks characters, Currency Booster, and EXP booster), but I don't foresee these items giving mid-level players much of an advantage.

    I should note that the tutorial is horrid. And the Scenario mode's gameplay is too punishing to casually learn the game as a tutorial. For instance, I didn't really understand how to remotely ignite explosive charges or understand the uses of drone/ extra drone for a few rounds into the game. So, I hope Ubisoft enhances the tutorial, because it'll deter a lot of new players.

    Oh and another thing: There're way too many non-English speaking players on the game. Can we somehow limit the matchmaking by regions?

    Lastly, I think game will have a hard-time retaining casual-players. There is not gameplay that really stands out to me, and doesn't give players the flexibility to be creative. I would've like to see a feature where users could create their own maps, and a server list for custom games/scenarios where I could play a round with 10 v 10 or 15 v 15 or with Multiple objectives.

    Overall I think the game is well made and really fun. I'm looking forward to any improvements Ubisoft will make to it.

    To the Rainbow Six veterans. I am a fan of the series since Raven Shield. Of course, the series has evolved, an Siege has not that much in common with Raven Shield anymore. But It is a very good game on it's own and maybe should not be compared to it's predecessors (i know it's called "rainbow six", but obviously for marketing reasons). But if you liked R6 for tactical gameplay and it's great atmosphere you will like Siege, too, that's for sure.

    Hey there. I’m here to give anyone that’s willing to listen my opinion on a game I’ve been playing for quite some time—Rainbow 6 Siege. I’m just going to get right to the point:
    Siege might have been the best FPS I’ve ever played, but it ends up falling so flat that it hurts. It’s one of those games that most people classify as having potential—but just to waste it and not do what could’ve been done several times better. I’m not saying that Siege has to meet every single one of my expectations, or that it needs to be what I want it to be—I’m trying to say that as a game in its genre it needs to cover some bases before even trying to be an FPS.
    I’m talking about net code, fixing the issue with peekers advantage, giving spawn protection to attackers for a few seconds to protect them from spawn camping, and lastly preventing players with more latency to benefit from said latency. These are things that have a DIRECT influence in the way people play the game. It affects how each round plays out, how encounters work, and how players approach the game. If you know that you will have an advantage over someone if you peek them first, you’re more than likely going to run in and go for a peek. If you know you can get one or two picks at the very start of the round, you’re more than likely going to take the risk and take out those key ops. If you see you’re connected to a server and you’re lagging a bit—and you have peekers advantage, you’re more than likely going to run in first.
    Most people take any advantage they can get. And are they to blame? No, I can’t say they are. I myself am guilty of peeking outside, spawn killing, and rushing in. If my team is down by one, or if we’re tied up, or if the other team is outperforming us by using these things to their advantage, why am I going to take it? I won’t.
    And here is where my problem with this game really comes in: it almost forces you to accommodate your play style to these factors. Most matches play out the same way now. The same repetitious outside peeking, excessive rushing, defenders not doing their job—which is defending the objective, etc. I feel like as a player, I’ve lost the advantage in being to choose the way I play the game. I feel constrained in my choices in play-style because everything I’ve tried doesn’t work. I don’t really like the way I have to play the game now, but because it works I do it. And that’s where the game becomes just about winning and that’s where the fun factor ends for me. I try my best to only play when my friends are online as well. When they aren’t, I stick to terrorist hunt. But when they are on, they ultimately suffer the same fate—and for the most part, share the same opinion.
    Lastly, I feel like the game puts too much of a focus on adding in new operators. It is clearly an important part of the game and helps to “shift the meta”, but the season passes and the constant weapon skin additions really just detracts from what I would consider other important content. And by content I mean fixing the stuff that I’ve mentioned earlier. I’m not about to claim that I know anything and everything about how to manage a game like Siege, but from my perspective I’d shift focus.
    In summation, the problem I have with this game currently is that it lacks the foundation it needs to support its wonderful concept. It focuses too much on other things—like weapon skins and other gear—when it should be directing its focus on what makes the game function. By allowing problems like peekers advantage, spawn killing, and using latency as an advantage, the game shoots itself in the foot. It limits the player’s choices regarding play-style tremendously, and instead of building on its concept—it stunts its growth. You can’t build a house without a solid foundation.

    I've played all of the Rainbow Six games starting from the first one in 1998. And what comes to multiplayer, this is the best Rainbow Six, ever. Extremely tactical, slow paced thinking (and speaking) man's shooter.

    It has practically no single player, so be warned. There is a series of offline tutorials called "Situations" which take about a hour to complete.

    There's been a lot of controversy about micro-transactions, but not really worth the fuss. I bought the standard version, and after 1st day I already had 10 of the 20 operators unlocked. All the Season Pass does, is giving this a bit faster. There is no pay-to-win in this game. And there is absolutely no reason to buy the expensive editions, standard has it all.

    All of the future DLC maps and operators will be free (there will be 4 maps and 8 new operators in 2016).

    THE GOOD

    The MP is intense, addicting, punishing, extremely tactical. It's mostly slow paced, but when the action breaks out, it's sharp and brutal. The game feels fresh, which is not common thing for a shooter.

    Without VOIP there isn't much point in this game though. It requires communication and planning. It's not for people who are not willing to instantly talk with strangers, or have 4 friends to squad up with. Fortunately 95% of players on PC have a microphone, and are willing to use it with random people too. You can't coordinate a breach (every wall and ceiling taken down in a timed blast, and whole team busting in) without VOIP. For one thing. VOIP really is mandatory, unlike in some other games.

    10 MP maps doesn't sound like much, but they are extremely detailed. There is so much to learn, various routes and intricacies. Everything that looks like it can be taken down, shredded to pieces with gunfire or blown holes into with C4, can be. Almost anything that looks like you can rappel it up/down, can be. No set rappel points.

    Still I have to admit, would have wished for a bit more maps at launch. Then would have given it a 10.

    THE BAD & AND THE UGLY

    It would be a perfect hardcore shooter, but unfortunately there is hit reg problems. Which is not excusable for this sort of game, with no respawns, aiming at competitive gaming.

    If they fix that, my score will remain at 9. I'm trusting that they will, since it was specifically promoted as e-Sports game by Ubisoft. If this is not fixed, I will come back and change my rating into a 6. It's not a huge issue for casual play because it doesn't happen all the time, but the game is not ready yet for e-sports.

    CONCLUSION

    Definitely can be recommended, if classic tactical shooters like SWAT 4 light your fire. This is pretty much like multiplayer-only SWAT 4. But it's not instant gratification shooter like Battlefield or COD. Running around trying Rambo stuff will get you killed in 5 seconds.

    Don't buy from Steam, there is plenty of cheaper places, for example G2A.com. I got mine for €35.50. People who are suspicious about G2A, no worries. I've bought 6 CD-keys from there and they all worked perfectly.

    Rainbow Six: Siege is a surprisingly entertaining game which brings the classic Tom Clancy series into the modern era in a genre which has been quiet in recent years. This game is by no means perfect with some flaws as expected but Ubisoft have produced a title that fans of the classic genre will certainly enjoy.

    Siege is largely a multiplayer team-based game which centers on casual or competitive 5v5 matches on a variety of maps with hostage defence and bomb defusal being the primary objectives. Matches are best of 5 alternating rounds in which you and four others team up in attack and defence. There are only 10 or so maps available but each vary in size and style and as the objective point changes location in each round; everything feels fresh and both sides must work hard on offense and defence. You can also team up with 4 friends against the AI and play out MP scenarios although the dreadfully coded AI leaves a lot to be desired.

    The structure of the game surrounds earning XP called Reown points - these can be spent on unlocking operators who each have their own special equipment and loadouts to be used in the field. There are around 16 operators to unlock in the basegame and all differ and can only be selected by one player in each team in the lobby. Reown can also be used to unlock attachments, camo's and other additional customisation elements. Some attack operators can blast through walls, hammer down barricades, bypass traps whereas the defensive operators can use their equipment to counter the opposition with strategically placed traps and positioning. Everything feels well-balanced and the level of customisation is fantastic.

    The disappointing aspects of Siege is that there isn't really a worthwhile single player option - you can solo some scenarios as a lone wolf but these aren't very satisfying and can be extremely difficult even on normal difficulty. Other issues surround the poor netcode and typical Ubisoft server reliability. The visuals feel somewhat dated and the mechanics are a bit clunky but despite this; there is plenty of fun to be had without the woes getting in the way. The general controls may lack fluency but at least you feel like you're in control of a tactical operator and not some arcadey Call of Duty character.

    Overall; Rainbow Six: Siege rejuvenates the vintage genre and is a worthy successor to the classic games in the series. It demands tactics and teamwork and each match is never the same. The game does have a few issues and perhaps isn't as polished as we would have hoped but nevertheless, it's a good purchase especially if you have dedicated friends to play with. If you are looking for a single player experience, this game is not for you but even if you are a solo player just wanting to jump in casually; it's a easy game to get into and tremendous fun throughout.

We get ports, and everyone knows how well Ubisoft makes them. Look at Hawx.

    I'm not spending 60 dollars on a game with such limited content, no dedicated servers, and a MP only focus. It's pure laziness on the developers side, and like Activision it is a stab at the PC community to force us to play the way they want us to play. In the words Jay Wilson, "You are having fun incorrectly."

    I've waited over a decade for a true sequel to the original R6 series. Takedown: Red Saber could have been that had it not played like abandonware from day one.

    If Ubisoft really cared about the Tom Clancy series they would have taken a look at GroundBranch.

    I started playing in the Open Beta. I was hooked. I normally don't buy games, this one I actually ended up buying. The game offers so many moments you can remember the next day, clutch saves, lucky snipes and the lot. You feel like you're actually doing something, instead of mindlessly shooting everything that moves.

    The game feels very balanced, and the developers are actually listening to the community. They have laid out a roadmap of what's to come in 2016, new operators, new maps and it's going to be completely free. Coming from a LoL player that is still playing because of how competitive the game is, I feel like this is going to be in similar fashion.

    Some people I see are whining about how you have to unlock Operators and all that, which is absolute **** There are 20 operators in the game. After doing the tutorials and situations, which are singleplayer content, I ended up with 7800 Renown. Which allows me to unlock 2 Operators from each of the 5 CTU'S for a total of 10. So with about 2.5 hours of playtime, I unlocked half of the Operators. I think that is beyond fair, in fact I'm quite shocked. I feel like I am at no disadvantage whatsoever.

    The game feels great. You can get it for 30$ and in my honest opinion, that's a good deal. I can't wait to get back into it.

    The game is real good ol' fun! Tactical FPS at its best. If you liked the classic Rainbow 6, Rogue Spear series you will feel right at home. The feel when moving around in the game is actually quite similar to the classic RB6 titles. Also, the new mechanics with breakable walls etc, have been implemented really well. They add to the experience instead of becoming gimmicky and unnecessary. There is really not much more to say, try it out and I'm sure you'll have fun.

    no campaign no co-op campaign just multiplayer and small co-op terror hunts NOT worth the money.
    I think you are better off waiting till the price hits rock bottom like £5 in the bargain bin.somthing tells me that wont be long.

    This is a very strategic and sophisticated shooter with destructable environments and a focus on teamwork (not nearly as fun without cooperating on headsets). The atmosphere and tension is great and the operators you can play as are unique with their own cool skills and gadgets.

Only cons are some bugs/glitches that need to be fixed but overall its a worthy installment in the series. Expand

    Shooda,Wooda,Cooda. I video game is only as good as its weakest link. In This case it has nothing to do with the great gameplay this game offers but instead its poor netcode and server stability.

    What good is an online only game if you can't connect to a server.

    Not fun. Made for snark marks but tom Clancy forgot that there's more to a game than guns and camos. Go check out MGS or Arkham Knight. This is for the boys that like to throw money in the trash for the fun of it.

    This game is childish and non-realistic. And for me it has nothing to do with famous classical Rainbow Six series. Let me explain some details about it. My personal opinion about single-player (I understood, that the game is probably targeting the multiplayer), what I don't like in this game:
    - the atmosphere completely lost. I didn't feel like I am on a dangerous and important missions

    - the atmosphere completely lost. I didn't feel like I am on a dangerous and important missions anymore. The mission in a plane gave me chills of nostalgia at first time I see it. But then, it came to nothing. The game is absolutely empty;
    - terrorists stay on their points and wait while you find them like dummies in the SWAT playground. Great, that's what I expect of Rainbow Six series;
    - terrorists shout about their actions loud, just I can kill them easily: "Reloading!", "Move to intercept". One of them shouted: "Hostile spotted!", just before shooting at me, and that gave me time to kill him first. Thanks!
    - one player campaign is dull, uninteresting and remind me of some bad B-movie;

    And more, and more. Just don't want to talk about this game anymore. Judge by yourself.

    One of the best FPS shooters of this year. It is a little slow paced and requires you to think before doing anything. A little service crashes happen sometimes, but still it will e resolved in near future

    There simply is not enough game here to warrant the price. As a huge fan of both rainbow six vegas games ((And all their respective DLC content)), I feel extremely disappointed. This game consists of 11 maps in its entirety. Their content roadmap states they will be adding 4 more over the next year. So sometime by Christmas Next year, there will be 15 Maps. ((MAYBE.))

This game consists of 11 maps in its entirety. Their content roadmap states they will be adding 4 more over the next year. So sometime by Christmas Next year, there will be 15 Maps. ((MAYBE.))

    It is no coincidence that the ability to select game modes is hidden under different UI than any other FPS would ever have utilized. The Developers are clearly trying to stretch what little content they have as far as possible. This is shameful.

    What game is there is certainly nice. The guns are nothing particularly amazing, but passable. The explosives are enough to illicit some tactical play. Nothing here hasn't been done before, better, Elsewhere. For a game with so little, Ubisoft then has the nerve to put in a cash shop, for boosters and skins. In case you weren't getting all of the limited content fast enough, and so they can churn out more recycled garbage.

    The AI feels no different than it did in Rainbow Six Vegas 2.

    Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Released in 2008 with:
    12 maps, 4 DLC maps
    A Full Campaign.
    Extensive character Customization

    The Maps themselves do not feel NEARLY as exciting as those in Vegas 2. We were going through neon sign graveyards, Bright, loud casinos, of various makes, a whole construction zone for CQB training, Oil refineries, Trainyards....I had the most fun on a shooter I'd had up until that point. I was hoping to recover some of that, but the wind is right out of my sales.

    In Closing, This game is a major disappointment to any Vegas fan who expected more.

    R6 Siege, as a tactical multiplayer game, is actually pretty fun. However, the distinct lack of weapon customizations as well as lack of maps make this a somewhat lackluster game. Add in the fact this game does not have the single player campaign the Rainbow Six series is known and lauded for, and you come out with a fun game but one that is not worth it's current price point.

    Finally a good solid cooperative fps game. It must have teamwork. Not just run and shoot like almost every fps games in the recently market. The graphics are ok. Great optimization on PC. The sound is astounding and a very important key to victory. Anyway, I am enjoying so much this game, not because it's perfect, it is not. But like I said, the fps market was having a lack of games like this.

    I am extremely surprised and disappointed with this game. After a year and a half the game is only what was shown at E3 2014, no improvements whatsoever, why it took so long to finish is beyond me.

    There is no story mode, only multiplayer, and no option to have AI teammates. The game is extremely limited. I was expecting it to be a modern version of rainbow six vegas 2, but instead you cannot select the mode, map or any details of terrorist hunts, it just cycles between different modes and maps. I prefer terrorists hunts and miss the day where you could play just that and pick your map and vary the amount of enemies, but no longer.

    Likewise the pvp aspect also goes between different game modes. They completely eliminate the ability to make your own choices in this game. And for any mode you no longer have your own character, you only purchase specific characters which are limited to a few weapons. So you can spend currency upgrading a weapon but might not be able to use that weapon unless you're the first to select that character.

    There are a lot of glitches in the game too, which with no changes to the game in a year I don't see how they havent fixed these big mistakes. Including seeing an enemy AI through a doorway and shooting them 15 times and it doesnt register any of the shots. Also for costing $60 MSRP (which im regretting the $30 I paid for it) the game acts much more like a free to play with all of the micro transactions to unlock guns and weapon skins.)

    Connection issues: Assume this is a start up problem but while matchmaking only 1/4 searches finds matches, usually youll connect and then the host will leave and it kicks you out or it just stops searching after 8 seconds and brings you back to menu.

    The only good I see from this game is that when selecting graphics options it explains exactly what all options does, which would be really good for any non-pc expert.

    TL;DR This game is a huge disappointment, and Ubisoft has proven once again to be a terrible dev company.

    When I played the open Beta I was surprised at how fresh the gameplay was. The last couple of years have been over crowded with COD clones and every developer seems to be copying COD.

The last couple of years have been over crowded with COD clones and every developer seems to be copying COD. For what its worth Modern Warfare 1 was the best in my honest opinion. Anyway back to Rainbow Six. I played the original games on PC years ago and this was a pleasant surprise. Though it doesn't have single player elements to it, its all multiplayer. In my books thats not good. You need to be able to play a story mode. there has to be more to each level than just attacking and protecting, even if there was just a cut scene that you can watch.
    At first the games design is all based around attacking and defending, then unlocks, each particular attacker and defender have certain abilities. All the content that people complain about not being there is in fact there in the form of cutscenes for each character that you unlock. And well the 11 maps and then thats it. But the gameplay is very good. So good you will come back to it again and again. They say future updates will release more maps and characters to unlock, which in turn will just increase the longevity. Thats is true . Bit I can't help feeling disappointed towards the lack of single player missions. Even the single player situations for some reason don't run at the same frames per second in multiplayer than it does in the single player missions. Leaving controls and movement feeling laggy. Plus the AI is atrocious. Its just shoot the moving target and so on. No fun there. Anyway all in all, this game is fun for the basic element that it focuses on. The graphics are good when you are playing multiplayer and most importantly if you have a team that communicates its worth the purchase. Because each round will last a lot long if you work together rather than going lone soldier. 8/10

    After like 6 hours of playing this game, Rainbow Six Siege is pretty much meant for PC because most people who played this game on console might be go a little reckless without teamwork and strategy, plus the netcode is a bit poor in this since it's ubisoft who tend to rush their games now.

    I like the gameplay, the graphic, the atmosphere and so on...

    I dislike that there's no really team play. Sometimes... but not always.
    And, if you watched the E3 trailer you will see, that there was AGAIN (Watch Dogs) a graphic downgrade

    Whatever, in general, I've got my fun with this game. And playing this game with friends is even better.

    Everybody should buy this game ;)

    I don't find the content limited - there are 20 maps I think and 3 modes (hostage, bomb, kill all) when playing Terrorist Hunt. There are many Operators to choose from and there is no grinding. You can get more than 6000 points just by completing the single player training Scenarios. This can unlock and fully equip 3-4 operators.

    There is no pay to win element at all. Micro transaction are limited to skins and boosters.

    This is a straightforward focused team based FPS that stands on it's own. I'm glad I bought it.

    Unfortunately, there aren’t that many maps available, but each one of them has lots of details and alternate routes, like basements and balconies. Even the airplane is much more complex than the archetypical “long tube with seats.” [Issue#205, p.48]
