  1. If you're a fan of the franchise, genre, or good games, you owe it to yourself to pick this game up.
  2. Once you get a game going, the online aspect of Vegas far and away shines as the biggest selling point, but there's no discounting the single-player game either -- even if the ending is a little blah. Better late than never, Vegas rocks.
  3. While the game still looks like a next-generation title, it lacks many of the subtle points of refinement the Xbox 360 version offers. Environments are noticeably muddier and jaggier, as if Ubisoft forgot to use anti-aliasing...Despite these minor flaws, Rainbow Six Vegas offers a fantastic FPS experience that rivals anything else on the PlayStation 3. If you haven’t played the game on the 360 already, this is a must-buy for any self-respecting fragger.

    Vegas is very good, the only drawbacks coming from the slightly too short singleplayer campaign which can be dispatched in about 8-10 hours.
  5. While the SIXAXIS implementation is okay, it feels like it was put into the game simply to be able to say it was put into the game. The rest of the interface is solid, and the learning curve to learn the control scheme is small with this title.
  6. Rainbow Six Vegas isn’t all roses but it’s not all thorns either. I guess you could say it’s mostly rosy all around.
  7. 70
    The gameplay feels as though it has mapped exceptionally well to the PS3's controller, unlike many other ports for the console. However, Rainbow Six has traditionally been a multiplayer-focused franchise, and it's here that the game disappoints.

    What a great game! I've avoided first person shooters since Quake 2 ate up my sophomore year of college, so I bought this game with What a great game! I've avoided first person shooters since Quake 2 ate up my sophomore year of college, so I bought this game with trepedation... and have been absolutely enthralled with it! What fun! True, I've played on easy - and had a fun time - but it's a marvelous game, with beautiful graphics. I've jumped and dodged around my living room while playing due to the excitement of the scenes! The online play is WAY too cool, also.!!!! Expand

    I just love how the 360 fans come on here and insult a good game, that they're essentially playing, and enjoying, but won't admit I just love how the 360 fans come on here and insult a good game, that they're essentially playing, and enjoying, but won't admit it's good because it's on another console. This is a great FPS game, where you'll find a lot of action. Ian C and ryencoke, I like the 360, but try and enjoy your game before you get the red rings of death, or it just eventually burn out on you, good thing you have extended warranty, you're going to have to use it, a lot.

    Good enough. I'm not comparing to XBox version like most of the people here. Single player is nice with many paths to take (better map Good enough. I'm not comparing to XBox version like most of the people here. Single player is nice with many paths to take (better map design than Resistance). Enemy AI is good and can out flank you if you're not careful. Multiplayer is decent though the interface can get cumbersome at times and I'm annoyed at lagging sound when there are too many headset users (must be my connection though). COD3 and Resistance seems to have more efficient multiplayer. Graphics is ok but I still believe COD3 still has the best graphics among the PS3 shooters. Expand

Most of the great original Xbox 360 game is there, but the conversion to the PS3 has had it's bumps in both graphics, and controls. The Sixaxis just doesn't work as well with this shooter. Expand

    I've never played the 360 version but its gotta be better than this rubbish. The single player is awful and the online isn't as I've never played the 360 version but its gotta be better than this rubbish. The single player is awful and the online isn't as good as R:FOM. Shouldn't have wasted my money. Expand

    I played this game for a few months, I don't care what anyone says no systems make this game appealing to the eyes. That besides theI played this game for a few months, I don't care what anyone says no systems make this game appealing to the eyes. That besides the point, the list of over 200 glitches my clan and I found, mostly from a very poor port job, seems to dissatisfy me even more. But the killer of the whole thing is, ubisoft's hey screw them they paid for it and lets just ignore them and make a new rainbow six vegas and call it rainbow six vegas 2? that way they buy the game again and all we have to do is spend a day or 2 changing minor things in the storyline. Very not happy with this game, would have rated it a zero but it has a mute feature in the lobby which cod4 does not. Because of the horrible support, slow motion gameplay, bad graphics, 200+ glitches (231 to be exact), and lack of updates, i just unreserved my copy of haze (which is a whole differn't story), and put ubisoft titles on my do not buy list. Ok now that i am all mad all over again no longer rating it a 3. All these "professional" reviewers said all these good things about this game, makes me wonder if this was their first fps? i mean have they played anything halfway good? (any of the doom series, wolfenstein, resistance fall of man, turok?). Expand
