    Stakes and tensions run high whether playing solo or in a group, but the game truly shines when you’re working with a coherent team, so pick this game up and find one.

    Despite including several different game types and modes, Ubisoft clearly designed Rainbow Six Siege with a very specific kind of player in mind. If you have an abundance of patience, fortitude, and maybe a few gamer friends you can wrangle up, Siege could be just the tactical shooter experience you’re looking for. If you’re looking for a fun game you can kick back with and enjoy in a more casual way, you might want to look elsewhere.

    Despite its flaws, Rainbow Six: Siege has emerged as one of the strongest FPS titles of the year.

    The gameplay is solid as a rock; super intense, exciting and porn for the tactical shooter fan. But the game quickly loses its power when you stray among the other game modes, which are limited and lacking good AI. This is what they call: too little content for too much money.

    Rainbow Six: Siege delivers on what it promised to be: a well-made, multiplayer-focused, team shooter. To criticize it for not having a stronger single player experience is accusing it of a pretense it never made, and consumers will decide whether the product has broad enough appeal to warrant its price.

    Rainbow Six Siege is a good FPS at its gameplay core thanks to good level design, but the lack of content and imprecise controls makes it a completely forgettable game.

    Tactical action with potential -or one great game mode- but at the cost of the full game these are the two faces of the new Rainbow Six. [Issue #259]

Twenty different special operators each bringing there own skill set for great variety. This is easily THE FPS to play, better than the competition. It looks great, sounds great and handles great. It's a pull no punches approach to a genre that has left its roots in realism for something to science fiction as of late. The matches are tight and intense and at any moment can shift from winning to losing if you are careful. The maps are fully interactive with security cameras to get the drop on your opponents to breachable walls to create your own path. Plenty of room for a large variety of strategies on both sides, so whether your attack or defense you and your team can create a style all your own. So if you like a seriously intense game play rooted in reality answer the call and join Rainbow6!! Expand

I understand this isn't for everyone to play, because of the tactical gameplay, heavily depending on good teamwork. Going solo in a teambased shooter like this will easily and quickly get you killed.
    Enough maps, spread out in 2 modes. Good balance between teams and weapons (people saying the shotgun is overpowered.. well... it is a shotgun after all.).
    No SP, true, but you got about 12 situations/scenarios to play solo or co-op on 3 different difficulties. So no story, but a small SP of some sort. In the end people play it for the MP.If the MP is played as intended, this is a game i'll still be playing next year (if Ubisoft gives it a good support, but with free DLC in the future, I think they got it covered)
    I had no technical issues, no problems with matchmaking or hit detection. Everything goes very smooth.

    Among the best online games on PS4. Siege feels like the most creative and intelligent FPS game in many years.

    Among the best online games on PS4. Siege feels like the most creative and intelligent FPS game in many years.

    The gadgets are interesting to try out for various characters, and the short round-based matches combined with ranked online play, it feels like virtual sports... like something that wont turn boring.

    One big gripe is that the main gamemodes (hostage extraction, bomb defuse...)... every session easily turns into standard death match... so effectively, you're just playing team death match over-and-over, with an optional hostage to extract or whatever. The game would benefit hugely from an ultra-varied set of extra game modes, like a sniper-only game mode on open field, or something similarly bizarre.

    -indestructible riot shields
    -problems with servers
    - and once again indestructible riot shields. How is that even possible to be so dumb to make shield held by a man to be impossible to destroy by grenades, C4 or any weapon in the game that seems to be realistic and tactical? Game with great potential wasted by stupid decisions.
    Edit: i forgot about players using XiM or Conus Plus, when you see someone killing you aiming and tilting sideways be sure he is using one of those, works even on Ps4 and devs dont give a single S.
