    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

    When I first bought this game - I could imagine myself playing it for maybe a couple days maybe a handful of weekends - then I'd go back toWhen I first bought this game - I could imagine myself playing it for maybe a couple days maybe a handful of weekends - then I'd go back to playing my staple which is madden. Never really got into the COD games - was more of a hitman kind of guy. After playing this now - for more hours than I can count - I'd have to say this is the best game I've ever played (including GTA, Splinter Cell etc). This game never gets old - amazing to play when you have a MIC and it just keeps re-inventing itself with new strategy, tactics, missions, operatives etc. It's a shame more COD die hards don't play this - because if they did - they would never go back to COD. That's a fact. Expand

    Finally an FPS worth my time. This game is so intense and so tactical it kept me on for hours. Convinced a few friends to team up online withFinally an FPS worth my time. This game is so intense and so tactical it kept me on for hours. Convinced a few friends to team up online with me and they are just as hooked. Every win in this game, every kill, feels like a true achievment. You can get killed so easily if you try to just run in. Its like the dark souls of FPS games.

    So many different ways to tackle online games, it doesnt get boring. At release there are a decent amount of maps. Every map can have slighlty different modes and times of day. Combine that with all the different locations you can be holes up in, different operators with unique skills, and different styles of play from online players leads to every match feeling totally different. Graphics are not bad, sound is good, especially in tense moments when your defenders and you hear breach charges going off.

    This game can be played casualy, but be warned it isnt a push over. Only disappointments is that there isnt much in the way of single player, which is a shame because your paying full price for this game. Also a few bugs in game which cause you to get stuck. Otherwise a great effort and a game worth playing.

The game's skill gap is very large and is very refreshing compared to the variety of FPS games out.

    Situations is a great way to introduce new players to the game. Terrorist Hunt is a great AI mode and very effective way to warm up your aim.

    The game's gunplay is amazing and it's nice to try out the arsenal of guns with the game's large amount of maps and operators. Every operator feels unique because of their gadget. Although there are some that share a lot of similarities.

    I love that the game gets updated regularly about every 3-4 months with new operators, maps, bug fixes, and new features. I also love that you can get new operators by earning them and that you can spend money to skip ahead, but it doesn't make you good or anything.

    I love the destruction and how not every game will be the same and how one can develop multiple strategies for every objective for every map and for every operator.

    Game has a lot of unique and fun elements which makes it stand out among other fps online shooters, but it has it's issues. All operators playGame has a lot of unique and fun elements which makes it stand out among other fps online shooters, but it has it's issues. All operators play differently and play a huge part in succeeding a round/game. The maps are huge and different, challenging you and forcing creating new tactics. Overall the game can deliver a new and fun experience. Game gets still new updates every month with new features and operators, without forcing you to buy new in-game content with micro transactions or season pass.

    But unfortunately game is not without it's flaws. It has passed a year since the release date, but developers are still struggling to balance the operators and their weapons. Of course it's not easy when every two month they add new operators which may change game entirely, yet it can be frustrating when they change key elements using players as some kind of beta testers. It's an issue but it's not something that would ruin the whole game. Worst part is dedicated servers. Often you'll experience laggs and dropping out matches due to bad server performance. There is big chance that you or someone else with eventually drop out of a match during the game.

    They game itself is something challenging and interesting. With unique gadgets for every operator the game focuses more on strategy, new tactics and patience. Game is frequently is updated and if any new bugs are occurring, developers will fix them. As much as I like the game, the dedicated servers are the weakest part of the whole experience. With every new update the game runs more unstable than previously.
