    This is by far the most realistic and intense tactical first person shooter on the market. It's has 11 maps at release, each one unique unto itself.

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

    Ubisoft has done exactly what they set out to do with Rainbow Six: Siege, and that is to deliver a legitimate competitive squad based shooter in which tactics and teamwork trumps the COD mentality of running n' gunning. I refuse to review this game on the basis that "it should have had a singleplayer campaign" like some people seem to be doing, but instead I will review it on exactly whatUbisoft has done exactly what they set out to do with Rainbow Six: Siege, and that is to deliver a legitimate competitive squad based shooter in which tactics and teamwork trumps the COD mentality of running n' gunning. I refuse to review this game on the basis that "it should have had a singleplayer campaign" like some people seem to be doing, but instead I will review it on exactly what it is: a multiplayer online FPS. Overall, I give Rainbow Six: Siege a 9/10, and here's why:

    Pros:
    1) Each round is unpredictable and practically never the same - this game is one of the least repetitive shooters I've ever played, because every single round usually feels very different, with the only exception being when one team is superior in every single way to the other. Most of the time, however, I find that the rounds are fairly close at worst and insanely close at the best. You never know what an attacking teams breach method will be, and you never know what a defending teams defensive set up will be like unless you can sneak one of the drones in at the beginning of each round as an attacker.

    2) Operators - Some people were weary of deciding to go with Operators for this game instead of letting people simply customize their own character, but I think Ubisoft made the right choice here (by the way, you can still customize a character as "recruit", but they miss out on special abilities). Operators give the game very unique characters, both on the attack and defense sides, that each have their own special gadgets and purposes within their squad. Teams actually have to think about the chemistry of their sides operators when picking one at the beginning of each round, which only adds to the tactical thinking aspect of this game.

    3) Teamwork is a necessity - This games whole hype train running behind it was about being a team based squad shooter, and it has succeeded mightily in that regard. You cannot succeed in this game by playing a run n' gun COD style, but instead you must think about every single move you make very carefully and communicate with your squad at the same time about who will do what, where this gadget will go etc. This is a huge part of why every round feels so fresh, because you and your team constantly need to communicate and adjust to all the different situations you will encounter in the game, both on attack and defense.

    4) DLC/Unlocks - Knowing that I'd most likely want to play this game in the long term, I was nervous about what Ubisofts DLC approach would be to this game. Another fun teamwork based shooter, Evolve, was ruined by the developers poor decision of making in game DLC characters only purchasable through real money and not giving an in game currency option to purchase hunters/monsters. The DLC monsters ended up being 15 BUCKS EACH! An absolutely insane amount on top of a $60 dollar game. Rainbow Six: Siege has an in-game currency called "Renown" that you earn in each play, and you can use this currency to purchase your operators and also add attachments to their guns to make them better. Thankfully, renown is not hard to earn and unlocking the games base operators has been incredibly easy from the get go. The DLC plan announced by Ubisoft, thankfully, is that all DLC operators will have the option of being purchased for $5 dollars each, or reportedly with 25k in renown currency, giving players the option to get all DLC for free by simply playing the game they own anyways. All new Maps and Modes will be given to the community for free, which is another great choice by Ubisoft. Like other successful F2P games, the only things that can be purchased with money only are solely for cosmetic purposes, in the form of weapon skins. The DLC plan was a make or break for me as far as this game went, because I'm not the type who likes to shell out more than 60 bucks for just about any game unless it's a MASSIVE expansion pack worthy of extra money. Once I heard about Ubisofts DLC plan, I decided to keep my pre-order, excited that they were making the right decision with this game.

    5) Maps - The maps are mainly awesome, with only a couple of duds in my opinion. The duds to me are the ones that involve multiple buildings to search upon spawn as an attacker, with your camera drones that you get about 40 seconds with to roam about trying to find the enemy teams objective location and figure out their defensive set up. Some of these maps with numerous buildings are too complex and large for the attackers drones, often resulting in the attackers not finding the defenders location, which is fine every once in awhile but annoying when it happens often.

    Cons:

    1) Minor bugs/glitches - I haven't ran into many, but there is some such as getting stuck on things randomly.

    2) Occasional long loading times or trouble finding a match, which can be fixed by backing out and re-searching usually (AKA not a big deal).

    Overall, this game has been relatively flawless considering what it set out to do!

    -Operators are fun and great to use. The variety is awesome
    -The game play is balanced between attackers and defenders
    -The guns are cool and the gun play is top notch
    -The game embraces brief moments of highly intense action instead of constant middling action
    -It feels real. The immersion is amazing
    -Graphics are decent. Not great, but certainly good.
    -Game has very few glitches which is also nice. This does not include server issues though- which are plentiful.

    Bad
    -Hit detection can have issues
    -Servers go between decent and bad- lots of rubber banding
    -The grind to get new operators is a little tiresome after a while
    -THE MAIN ONE: It lacks a lot to do. There is terrorist hunt which is fun, the 5 on 5 attackers vs defenders, and single player situations which serve more as training than anything else. You can play every game mode in 20 minutes.

    Still a fun game. It does not require obscene amounts of cooperation between team mates which is nice. It is an intense high octane shooter that has the highest of highs, but sometimes it has some pretty low lows

    On paper Rainbow Six: Siege sounds like crap. It has about 3 modes for multiplayer which are all variations on get in and kill/extract/disable something or someone with no story mode and about 8 maps from what I could tell.
    The twist is that this game is actually good.

    Let's start with the bad before the good:
    -No story:

    I'm a fan of Rainbow 6: Vegas 1 and 2, I never played the multiplayer for it because I didn't have internet back then.The story is what kept me playing over and over again and it is very disappointed to see it has been removed, it is more of an issue that other games though because the early material of the game showed an interesting narrative which saw you playing as an operative and a civilian. I don't like this trend.

    -Lack of modes:
    As I pointed out there are a very limited amount of gameplay modes. All multiplayer modes double up as a TDM so often the match is ended by one team being wiped out rather than doing the objective. That in mind though, I don't see any more modes they could add. The only time a militarised force would be called in to siege a building is used in the game.

    -Poor graphics and character movements:
    There's no excuse for this, the game looks ugly for 2015 standards and the characters move in ridiculous ways that allows people to exploit it from time to time. A good example is hostage extraction, the way you interact with the hostage looks absolutely dumb.

    -Matchmaking:
    Ubisoft has a problem with their servers all the time. I'm never disconnected from the game but when I try and search with a squad of 5, we will be sent back to the menu screen or even split up. When you search for games alone, it takes an obscene amount of time to find people.

    Now onto the good:
    +Entry methods:
    This game lives up to its namesake by giving you a wide plethora of siege tools such as the traditional breaching charge, thermal charges, grenade launchers all the way down to a sledge hammer. You can break down windows, walls, door and floors to get to your objective but restrictions have been placed to keep it fair. This game has a great balance to it which you don't get in FPSs today.

    +Terrorist Hunt:
    This mode is what I play 80% of the time, I always play it on realistic and despite the fact that I lose 99% of the time I just can't stop playing it, it has this Dark Souls feel to it where if you throw yourself at it enough times you'll eventually crack it.

    +Operators:
    The operators have been carefully designed to ensure maximum balance so there is no such thing as the best operator, just your best operator. I personally play as Sledge on multiplayer and Fuze or Thatcher on terrorist hunt. Some characters that seem useless to you are the key to success for others. I don't use Ash because I don't see a use for her to have a long range breaching charge but other people make it work.

    +Enjoyable:
    This game is a tactical shooter so CoD or Halo players will hate it. I've had several situations where a person who is used to the fast paced action of other shooters tries to shoot me but starts strafing only for me to place 1 shot into their head. This game is realistic on the recoil so if you move while shooting you will miss. Fully automatic weapons are borderline uncontrollable so it's up to you to fire in short, controlled bursts.
    My favourite thing about siege is how tense it gets. When you're defending you get that feeling of anticipation while you wait for someone to come and attack you. When it comes to attacking, you have to formulate a plan because running in and spraying just doesn't work.
    It goes without saying that playing with friends is way better than playing with randoms. This may be an issue for some people but luckily for the PS4 players we have the community system that helps us find people to play with. I made an additional 10 friends who I play with regularly because of this so you have no excuse.

    +Sound design:
    This is the only shooter I have ever played where sound is such an important factor. Ubisoft has done a great job on the sound design in this game, I can identify different operators just from their footsteps; for example, if I hear heavy footsteps coupled with a clinking sound I know that it is someone with a shield.
    If you listen carefully you'll also hear someone put a charge on the door or wall hinting at their position.

    Overall I would say this game is great, not awesome just great. I give it an 8.2/10 just above average but lacking in certain places.

    It does suffer from tediousness, especially when players choose the same bomb site and spawn locations every round. It should be randomized. There's also friendly fire, so expect a lot of trolls. Riot shields are broken as hell, too.
    Despite these flaws, the game is still a blast to play, especially with friends. Just give it a shot.

    Rainbow six siege. So much potential, but Ubisoft cuts it dry. Here is my review for playing this game over the course of a year and a half:

    Content. Let's see.. you have situations, casual multiplayer and rank multiplayer and of course the "realism" mode that all it does is take off the hud. Casual multiplayer, you will run into about a 50/50 chance of either finding some immature kid killing off the team mates for no reason. Just round starts and boom everyone is getting shot by this kid....or you actually get a team that is decent enough to actually try. Rank is laughable now. It is becoming more of casual than anything, no one wants to actually put forth the effort and slim possibility you will find a match with at least one of your team mates having a head set. This game definitely has it's benefits if the whole team is communicating but no one seems to grasp that concept. Situations is just a task you are giving to learn the fundamentals of the game and make multiplayer easier for you so that you do not go complete noob mode on anyone. It seems to fail for that purpose on some people.
    The game modes are: bomb, hostage, and secure area. That has always been it and seems like they do not want to add an extra game mode. The worse thing about that is, all three game modes are played exactly the same. It turns into a team death match and fails to deliver the objective. Which is fine and all but it just gets so old so fast that no one is doing what the objective is entails. It isn't the gamers fault, but the developers because of poor design. Look at the E3 trailer of the game and compare it to today's gameplay and you will see how they make it seem like one thing but it never plays out that way.

    Gameplay. The gameplay is actually really good. From the destructive environment, even though limited but not too much, to how different each operator plays and feels. That is about it on the good part that makes this into a 7 and not lower with of course can be fun with friends and all communication team. Downfall of this is the hit detection and how nerf they are making weapons that doesn't make sense to be nerfed as well as weapons that are as strong as they are. For instance, in the latest update glaz's gun lost hits damage rating by over half. It went from 186 to 90...but that 90 is only at far distance. If you are close, it is even less. But you have someone like Caveria, who has a pistol with what looks like a plastic bottle attached for a silencer that will knock you down with a couple of shots or kill you with a couple of shots depending how close, and has a damage rating of 90. It seriously doesn't make any sense whatsoever and it is just going on a downward slope with the hit box's that make this game frustrating. Too many instances where I am shooting someone center chest or head and they see me and shoot a couple of times and I take way more damage then they did and even on the kill cam they are repeatedly taking hits and blood coming off of them, barely anything.

    The upside is they have improved the servers and how long it takes to get into a match. But that is about as much progress as this game has gotten. Hopefully they will turn things around and spice it up a bit with new game modes, better hit detection, and stick with unique operators that continue to play so differently. It is a decent game at best when you are on an all chat team or playing with friends but it needs variety and it needs it fast.

R6S with season 1 is the game that should have been released last December. I've been waiting a while for a decent shooter that's more methodical than what's in the market, R6S feels like it's testing how smart you are. The title comes as a complete surprise for me, certainly one of the best games 've played this year. I hope Ubisoft gets into the practice of including year 1 DLC with the core game for 60 dollars, it definitely helps.

Full of tense moments, high stakes gameplay, unique "operator" skills, and meticulously crafted destructible maps - the game offers a multiplayer team experience like no other - however, team gameplay is also where the game's weakness is most noticeable.

    To play and fully enjoy the Rainbow Six Siege experience, playing in a squad with at least one other friend is quite essential. However, an open mind, willingness to cooperate, and communication with one's teammates will help overcome these barriers. Furthermore, given the lethality of weapons found in the game, individual player skill and experience can be reasonably leveraged to compensate in solo-play, leading to impressive multi-kills and aces.

    Furthermore, a large majority of the server issues that plagued the beta have been resolved with the release of the full game (which relies on dedicated servers for multiplayer PvP). Last but not least, the Ubisoft team responsible for the game has been incredibly proactive and transparent in their attempts to help debug issues - providing constant updates on their twitter feeds/within reddit. In my opinion, the game has managed a very admirable day one launch considering the recent record of launches for popular triple A titles.

    All in all, the impressive quality of gameplay, graphics, and MOBA-style team drafting/cooperation makes up for the games flaw's by far - creating an unforgettable experience that will leave you wanting for much much more.

Second strike server and connectivity issues, this was a big problem for the beta version, though this has been mostly resolved with the December update it is still a bit buggy. Third strike microtransactions, Micro transactions are common these days but in rainbow six its not worth it. But ubisoft must be commended for free maps and operators.

    It is not like Call of Duty. It is not like Battlefield, and it is most definitely not like Star Wars Battlefront! So if you enjoy being killed 25 times a session and respawning unrealistically back into the midst of battle, the this is not the game for you.
    This game is ultra tense, and at times absolutely brutal. Didn't cover that flank? Dead. Forgot to reinforce the trap door above you? Dead. You reacted milliseconds slower than the dude creeping around the corner? Dead!! And you will not respawn until the next new round.
    Not that this is a problem at all, because each round is a mere 5 minutes. A perfectly sufficient 5 minutes with which to successfully defend or attack the target. Attackers have 30 seconds to send in the drones to scan the area and identify the target or targets. This enables fast decision making regarding entry points, and attack coordination between you and your team mates.
    Defenders have the same 30 seconds to lockdown the objective or objectives in the case of 'bomb' (there are two bombs in adjacent rooms). Locking down consists of reinforcing weak walls which can be breached, setting laser trip wires on doors and window frames, deploying signal jammers to kill drones and prevent them from exposing the objective. This and much more can be done in preparation for the assault.
    Going back to the attackers, they can smash through doors, walls and windows, rappel upsides down and snipe through windows, take out the CCTV cameras to prevent the defenders from identifying their breach location.
    All this might sound manic, and at times it can be. But for the most part this game is about tension. Because it's a 5 vs 5 TDM, and once you die you stay dead, you really do not want to die!! If you do, it can have serious implications for the success of your team. And teamwork is where this game stands out!
    You do t have to use a headset, but it really does help. Even when playing with random team mates it still helps to have your headset on. If in the case of getting shot in the face (instant death), you can the cycle through the drone or CCTV cameras and inform your team mates of the whereabouts of opposite team members. You can also tag opponents using the cameras and holding down the triangle button. This red tag stays at the last known location of an opponent for several seconds. This is especially satisfying if they are behind a weak plasterboard wall and you happen to have a dirty big shotgun! Wuaahaahaa!!!!!

    So I would very highly recommend you try this game, especially if you prefer brutal realism over the classic, generic, die-spawn-die-spawn-run around a bit-get stabbed in the neck by someone who spawned right behind you-die-spawn-die-spawn type of shooter. Rainbow Six Seige feels like a welcome alternative to all of that.
    So get your buddies together, form a 5 man hit squad and yourselves into the action. You won't regret it!

    This is a nice break from the boringfields and call of money. This is a realistic, tactical first person shooter. The game had twenty characters to start with and 11 maps at release. And they just keep adding new content and guess what. It's free. That is more than ea and activision can say since they're money grubbing whores. This games does not fail to amaze me

    Frequent server outages combined with plagues of bugs they grow after each update. Ubisoft is clueless and doesn't care about user experience. Ubisoft only cares about developing new characters and promotional material to generate sales not improving a half bake game.

    Ranked match making is awful and doesn't even come close to actually matching players based on skill. Unless you have a full group prepare to get destroyed each game against pre made teams against solo players 9/10 times.

    When will gamers wise up and stop buying titles like this?

    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.
    (EDIT: This review is based primarily around the PC version of this game--so if there's any inconsistencies I apologize. I didn't notice that this was for PS4)

    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.

But also because someone needs to throw 10s in here to balance out the ridiculous 0s that make no sense. I would give this game a 9.3 if that means anything to you haha. Just small things i would liked tweaked that come off as an inconvenience more than anything else. stuff like being able to change my class up without having to back out of the match searching.

    This game is the realistic tactical shooter i've been waiting for. No map, all based on listening (awesome). A bullet in the head means you're dead no matter what gun ("boom headshot"). Game borrows a lot from what is great about Counter Strike (amazing compliment for a new shooter). Just run and gone, you're dead. Every step needs to be thought out and planned with your team. I am not a fan of games that don't come with story modes, but the multiplayer is just that damn good you don't need it. The way it is set up for awesome infiltration and defensive maneuvers that create these awesome action pact one of kind experiences with your friends. You really find yourself saying "damn that was so sweet" *hits share button on ps4*. Every class has a meaningful perk. Every perk has a counter perk. So many maps that have usually 3 different points of where the action happens so depending on where the bomb or the hostage is each map has 3 different experiences alone. Then on top of that, depending on how people play the game changes again. It's crazy how different it is every time. In other games a map loads and you know exactly what you are going to do. Run left look down that hallway, shoot because people usually run there. Then go to the next spot where the spawn point is..... none of that here. Each time a map loads you have no idea what you'll do until you collect intel and talk with your team to figure out the best way to attack based on the Rainbow Six members you'd decided to spawn as. I just can't say enough about this game. The only multiplayer i've enjoyed over the years is The Last of Us and many games that have come out have just let me down. Metal Gear. Battlefront. Destiny. But Rainbow Six has finally brought a Counter Strike type of game to console.

    Responses to 0 ratings:

    "no single player" - not worth giving the game a 0. multiplayer creates awesome scenarios that are difficult and more realistic that no AI could give you in a story. i always support games giving you a story for the sweet movie scenes and the opportunities for cool events of gameplay. but for the first time ever, i am ok with no story.

    "game plays like a mix of call of duty and battlefield": not true. call of duty is fast paced and people are jet packing everywhere and you get shot from behind every two seconds. Battlefield takes you 30 minutes to get into a spot to shoot your gun or find out where the hell the battle is going on. Rainbow Six is on a different level.

    "The AI is stupid"- that's true, the random side modes you do, the AI is pretty dumb as nails. Depending on the difficulty. I don't know what difficulty that person was playing on.

    "game is a bore fest generic shooter"- just plain wrong. no further comments

    "absolutely no incentive to work as a team" - this person needs 4 friends. i played all the old rainbow six games and this one demands way more teamwork in multiplayer than the last ones

    "the levels are boring." - ARE YOU FN' KIDDING ME

    "destructibility is nothing new" - 0 rating for nothing new. *claps s l o w l y*

    "rifle and pistol sounds very unrealistic" - i don't own the guns in the game so i can't comment on this

    "bad hit detection" - haven't had a problem with this. kill cams show weird things sometimes

    "stupid balanced shotgun" - one of the shotguns is mad strong but it seems like they reduced the range since the beta. i used a pump action at short range and had to hit them twice, other times at mid range it is once. really depends where the bullets end up.

    "can't create classes between operators" - i like how the guns are broken out between the classes. it gives it a thought out balance based on that operators perk. but i can see why someone would get frustrated with this.

    "no 3rd person duck and cover" - so happy they got rid of that. it is not realistic which is what this game is going for. if i put my back to a hallway wall i wouldn't be able to see down the whole damn hallway without the other person seeing me. if this game had that no one would be able to infiltrate anywhere. Yes, it was fun in the old games, no, would not work here at all and thank goodness it is not in this game.

    Hope this was helpful for those who are on the fence.

    I've seen other reviews that suggest this game is hampered by a dependence on microtransactions, but that's just not the case. The microtransactions are just a means to buy extra "goodies", like weapon skins, for your characters. There are absolutely no usable items or characters that require you to pay real money, which is the way it should be.

    This is an exceptionally addicting game, and it only gets more fun when you get a whole party of people playing together.

    For $60 this game is totally not worth the money $40 yes, $50 maybe.

    Graphics, there nice looking but seem to be on par with ps3 graphics

    Sound, it's nice very nice I use the sound to my advantage all the time but in this game you have to use everything to your benefit. voice acting in cutscenes seem useless since the only time a CS happens is when you start the game, unlock an operator, or when you do a Situation(which is the games tutorial).

    Gameplay, plays normal like any other FPS with WAY less customization on weapons. The game is a real challenge since you have only 1 life, you have a point system on health, and no way to heal your health. If you die you have on down to get revived but if you go down again you die. The guns are specific to the organization you choose and the weapons are specific to the person you choose. There is little customization on weapons, scopes, lasers, grip.
    You have 20 people to choose from but there split between 2 defenders and 2 attackers so you really only have a choice of 10 people. defenders defend there position in the building while the attackers infiltrate the building and that's the WHOLE **** GAME. Sure there's other mods like hostage, bomb, or the classic terrorist hunt but that's about it. Each operator has about 1-3 guns to choose from and 2 of the operators have nothing but a shield. The shield guys have piss poor shield aiming and if you want to sight aim you loose the effect of the shield. Mutiplayer is ok but it's just the same as terrorist hunt but with other players. This game got old real fast with the fact that you can unlock every operator and all the customization with the guns within a days time. from there you can do challenges but whats the point if you unlocked everything already.

    Controls, feel fine no big issue

    Balance, from what I could see each weapon is decent since it's all mostly CQC you always get the full damaging power of the gun so it's really just keeping the gun stable or getting that headshot's.

    Overall, it's not a bad game it really is fun but there's a lack of content and mods to play. it's all just 5v5, kill the other team or do the objective. it's like the Star wars Battlefront how it's got a lack of content.

    It is very disappointing though it has some unnecessary flaws, without a singleplayer campaign it feels it is lacking a lot of contents and Ubisoft had been lazy.. I played Rainbow Six Raven Shield back then it had an awesome campaign each mission had detailed background and briefings, even 12 years ago had AI teamates to play with you singleplayer. The most IMPORTANT issue is that the Terrorist Hunt mode (which I only cares about as I don't enjoy multiplayer) drops to 30 Frames per second on PS4. I expected a 60 Frame smooth movement as advertised, I wonder why they couldn't make it into 60frames in such a small map.. Even Battlefield could handle 60 frames in 64 player matches. Apart from this me and my mate had problem choosing maps, we thought we can't choose maps in matchmaking. There is actually a hidden setting in options you could turn off what maps you don't want to play, they should have made it more obvious..
    Overall I really love this style of game, in recent years FPS had been all about sci-fi and I am glad to see a realistic shooter back out here, great game with lots of potential.

    Something fresh with great graphics,smooth gameplay and totally different concept from previous fps, however theres no value for money here considering the price of the game. No single player campaign which wouldve been awesome. Online play is ok if you understand your team and communication isnt a problem. Can be repetitive at times and single play is not much fun really.

It even goes beyond bad. This might just be up there with some of the worst games I've ever played, and the fact I'm giving it a 3 says something about how many bad games I've played. So let's talk about what makes this game so bad. First, it has a serious lack of content, removing campaign and local multiplayer. Anyone who has ever played a Rainbow Six game will know that these are staples of the series, so they're pretty much essentials. A lot of multiplayer games these days suffer from these additions being removed when they could greatly benefit it. Rainbow Six seems to be the most upsetting one for the removal. Instead of singleplayer campaign, you get operations. Operations are essentially tutorial missions to help you get a feel for gamemodes and certain situations. Let's make this clear: they're awful. They aren't fun, they don't teach you anything. Apparently, their purpose is supposed to be for early XP gain. However, after completing half of them, I barely made it to level 1. It's pretty useless doing them, so I wouldn't bother. Next up we have multiplayer, the heart of the game. Is it fun? Well, no. When you break it down, it's really not. For starters, matchmaking is terrible. It was broken from launch, and that hasn't changed to this day. Even if the matchmaking worked, the multiplayer couldn't save this game. Don't get me wrong, the concept is cool and the game plays well, but it suffers from a multitude of issues. One main one being that the game tries so hard to stress that strategy is key. Well, it's hard to strategizing is pretty damn difficult if your team won't listen to you. I can't blame the developers for this, but I can blame them for why they don't listen. Nobody wants to strategize. Honestly, I'm not feeling the urge to do so either. A lot of the tools given to you seem like they should be used to plane out some trap or attack, but I'd never use them in any certain situation, so they feel like they have no use. It's not just the feeling of no strategy, though. This game is also loaded with bugs. Still. Still! It's been 8 months, why haven't they fixed the bugs!!!!!!! Anyway, I'll wrap up this review so I don't get too angry. To sum it all up, don't invest in Rainbow Six. It's complete garbage. 3/10. Expand

Rainbow six vegas was the undisputed king of freedom within the game and before. From customizing Guns, apparel, add-ons and etc. There was nothing you couldn't do. Aren't these new machines suppose to superior? why can't the customizing stay in a more powerful system. I loved having the option to put a silencer on in the middle of the game and taking it off, added something called realism. They obviously tried making a very different game than whats on the market today but its sad to say the game is just not good for. Its good to play for a few matches and then you realize its the same thing again again. Maybe they'll release a DLC to customize the operators they are forcing me to use. Expand

    In most review I read that the game have small amount of content. But this game have so perfect balance and it would it nearly impossible to create so balanced game with more character customization.

    Regarding lack of maps I completely disagree. It is 11 very complex maps with much more variety that have BF4 maps or other games.

    For me this game is not so addicting like run and gun. This game is like a classical book, it should be read slowly, with deep understanding and it could be base for a intellectual discussion.

Cant give this higher than a 8 due to the fact that there is no campaign like other classic Rainbow games however the idea of the "Situations" could be a nice treat.

People complain that there is no campaign, can't choose custom loadouts, bad graphics, not enough game modes bla, blah blah. The fact of the matter is that this game needs none of that. The GAMEPLAY is what matters in this game. Smart tactical movement, teamwork, and communication are key. Thus game is meant to be played with a squad. Lone wolf run and gun players will not like this game. As for the lack of campaign, who cares? If you want a campaign buy a game that has one. This game is not for you if that is the experience you are looking for. This game is for people who are looking for a tactical online shooter, that requires teamwork, communication and strategy. If that sounds like your style of game, you will love Rainbow Six Siege.

    As for the loadout complaints, they again make no sense when applied to this game. Each operator had a certain set of skills, weapons and abilities. You are playing as part of a team, and hence have a certain role to perform. Each operator had a counter operator available for the other team. This creates balance, promotes teamwork and adds a layer of strategy not found in any other shooter currently available on ps4.

    For people who say the graphics are on a PS3 level, that is absurd. The graphics are not the best on the system, but they are sol very good. It has a gritty realism to it that i personally enjoy.

    As for the lack of game modes, once again I say that is a moot point when applied to this game. A plethora of game modes is good when trying to appeal to the widest possible audience. Battlefield, COD, Battlefront, etc all have plenty of game modes to choose from. Despite that, most people have 1 or 2 modes that they play on a regular basis, and ignore all the others. This game as I said before is aimed at an audience looking for a certain type of game.

    Final verdict:
    If you are looking for a game with a 30 hour campaign, game modes galore, highly customizable loadouts, large open sniper friendly maps, run and gun gameplay, vehicular combat, or bullet sponge enemies that take a full clip to kill, then you are in luck. The market is filled with these games, go choose one and play until your heart's content. This game is not for you, and that's ok, but that doesn't make it a bad game. On the other hand, if you are looking for a tactical online shooter, this game is for you. In my opinion, this is the only game on the PS4 that offers this type of gameplay. Just make sure to play in a squad, use strategy and communicate, which is how the game is meant to be played.

    The sound design is where this game really shines. Hearing the terrorists making plans and scurrying above you and through the walls is an intense experience. It's an anxious feeling that is similar to survival horror games.

    Graphically the game holds up well. Its not amazing but it showcases its talents when it needs to. The destruction in the game is a step above any other shooters that claim destructible environments.
    If you are the lone wolf type like me, you will have fun with the tutorials,aka 'situations' that lead up to opening the multiplayer portion of the game. I played the levels on realistic difficulty and it was incredibly hard but not frustrating. It was hard because the game was better than I was. It's not attributed to the game being unfair.
    So do yourself a favor,go buy the game,buy some surround sound headphones,turn the lights off and start planning your attack. Its for real.

    Every pistol has no recoil, no leaning while not ADS'd, no console pro league (only ESL GO4's), the blatant powercreep every season, matchmaking is garbage (you get matched against people across the world during peak times) AND the old servers dropped less packets compared to the new servers.

    I guess my problem is the game just puts me to sleep, there's no excitement or tension in this game - its just defend, now invade, back to defend. Maybe mix in a terrorist hunt. Back to defend, then invade again.
    And before you call me a COD fan boy/Run and Gun type, I'm not. At all. But I do like some actual tension and drama in my shooter - this has none. I was hoping it would be more like TLOU Factions....

    whats bad?:
    boy oh boy where do I start?...

    - LAG (the game is unplayable, 1 shots without seeing bullets?), it's just unplayable most of the times
    - No customization of the agents (very basic in fact, just look at games like Rainbow six: Raven Shield or Rogue Spear and you'll understand what is missing here... it's just dull and extremely basic...
    - No modes (seriously, every mode they have, that I guess are somewhat 3, feel all the same... no all vs all, no possibility to choose the map and you are not even able to choose the mod u wanna play... that is just depressing).
    - Match Making lag/loop (if you cant find a match, the solution according to Ubi, is to quit the menu and enter again... Why do I need to be forced to find a workaround like that instead of implementing a proper Match making feature?...)
    - Wall glitches, body parts passing trough the walls, showing off your position in a tactical game is just plain retarded

    and the list goes on, I just cba anymore to list the negative stuff. As a customer who basically has/had all the Rainbow six games for PC I am speechless at how low Ubi fell down, I am deeply saddend and very disappointed.

    Is Rainbow6 a perfect game?
    No, but what it does is excel at giving a great experience. Situations are a blast, Terrorist Hunt can be incredible, and Multiplayer is unique.
    If you are a fan of tactical shooters, give RB6 a look. Even if it feels lacking initially, you will come to find the promise of free maps, and the intensity of a shootout, leaves a lot of time to burn in the game.

Although, its not the hardest of trials, it definitely is not easy. You will not breeze through these situations. And you must complete all of them by yourself except for the 11th one.Once you get past the bootcamp of the situations though, you will get to experience some of the most tense, unpredictable, and fun online games in a long time. Online servers run smooth as far as I have experienced from playing hours online. The longest time the servers were down was about 2 minutes. The rest of the time they were up and running with little to no lag. Which is impressive to say the least. The subpar graphics, average controls, and lack of single player campaign hold this game back. If you can overlook those, you still have the most tense online game (not just shooter) to come out this year.

    I can't praise enough about the gameplay. The emphasis on tactics and teamwork makes for a very tense and exciting shooter. If I could just play the game like I wanted this would be an 8 or 9 out of 10 straight away. Unfortunately, Ubisoft is pretty good at stopping that.

    The different operators are pretty well balanced. Everyone has their own niche and can be useful in their own right. One can shoot clusters of bombs into a particular room through a breakable surface, and another can set up additional cameras to spot enemies from. There are a decent amount of operators in the base game, however a significant amount are locked behind season passes. Yes, plural. It's not the most gregarious example in gaming, but after being spoiled by the likes of overwatch, it's hard not to raise an eyebrow.

    A major issue however, is the servers. It's not infrequent to be kicked from squads, games and experience large spikes in lag during gameplay. For a game in which a fraction of a second can mean the difference been victory and defeat, it's a very concerning issue.

    Another problem is the players. If you don't go in with a squad full of friends, you're very likely to find yourself on the receiving end of a painful situation. Team killing is extremely frequent, and more often than not completely on purpose. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be very heavily punished other than a slight docking of points. It's not unusual to find the defending team a man down before the attackers have moved an inch.

    Speaking of which, quitting is also very frequent. The matchmaking doesn't always find replacements, often meaning you'll find yourself in a match where you are missing teammates and at a significant disadvantage. Even just one missing teammate can make a match impossible to win. Terrorist hunt is almost unplayable for this reason, as by the one minute mark you'll frequently find yourself with only two players on your team. That's ignoring the pretty severe issues this game has with AI.

    Finally, bugs plague this game, even to this date. In my short time playing, I found numerous glitches such as your gun turning invisible, or getting stuck at 0 bullets in your clip and being unable to reload or do anything but move despite having ammo.

    In summary, Rainbow Six Siege is a very good game. Unfortunately, it seems Ubisoft royally screwed the pooch on this one and packaged it very incompetently.

    While the minute to minute gameplay is fantastic and nailbitingly tense, I question the longevity this, and other online-only games have.

    At the moment I am truly loving the dynamic this game has set up. It requires teamwork, communication, patience, and most importantly dead-eye accuracy. There's no run and gun COD tactics allowed here. That's a fresh ticket to the morgue (spectator cam) in R6: Siege.

    A few things keep me from giving this game the 10 it could have easily gotten. There is no way to vote on maps or which type of game to play, at least in casual games so you're stuck with the same map or game type multiple times in a row on occasion. Something else that irks me is the lack of customization per operator. Some operators are limited to one primary weapon. Very limiting.

    Also deducting a point for the ridiculous price on the season pass. $30 for unannounced content is insulting. Ubisoft b@tch slapping their customers yet again.

    Taking the content already there into consideration I'd give the game a solid 8/10. If you have at least one other person on your team who takes the game seriously and has a mic it improves the experience ten-fold.

    I love the more tactical shooter games where communication is key. Loved R6 Vegas and the Last of Us for the same reasons. THIS game adds new tactical dimensions not seen before and it has been a blast. I will say that in the early going I've had some problems trying to team-up with friends (constant error messages, causing me to restart my router) but I'm confident this will get fixed.I love the more tactical shooter games where communication is key.

    I really have to write review for this game so that somebody who has been looking for tactical shooters doesn't steer off because the criminally low score this has currently.

    Lets start with the negatives: Sure it could have had a campaign. There is a game mode called situations where you can practice. If Ubisoft just called it campaign and put videos between the missions everybody would be happy about it.

    Then to the positives: Game works well even if you don't have mics and communicate with your team members but the fun goes to whole new level when you are playing with your friends. In this game the lone wolf usually dies. You really have to co-ordinate with your team to survive. Learning the different perks of each character is fun and really changes the way you proceed to the mission.

    Which people haven't talked enough is the sound world. Never have explosions from distance sounded so real and it really gives you the nice atmosphere when you and your team mates are in the room protecting the hostage and the distance explosions start to sound and dust falls from the roof.

    Anyway, I could write much more good about the game but I really want to go back to playing and not writing here so adios.

    Losing too much sleep from staying up playing this game
    Too much water (looking at you IGN)

    Summary of Favourite Moment
    Playing in a five man party, all with headsets. Co-ordinating the attack before moving in. Taking out cameras with suppressed handguns and sneaking our way towards the hostage. Each of us surrounds the room with the hostage inside. We send a camera in which tags a few targets, before being taken out. … It’s quiet… the quiet before the storm. At my command, the team detonate the breach charges and throw concussion grenades into the room. We all breach at once, brothers in arms. We mercilessly and efficiently drop the enemy terrorists whilst they are suffering from exploding headaches. We check the hostage over, she’s fine. Mission completed.

    Summary of worst moment
    Lining up outside a room with a hostage in it. Telling my team to patiently wait as I throw a grenade in through the window. The grenade hits and kills the hostage. Mission failed. Sorry guys.

    Detail
    Siege is a welcome change of pace to the typical 'run and gun' titles out there (think Battlefield, Call of Duty etc. Siege carves its own place in a genre already full of FPS games and does so convincingly.

    The important question: What does it offer that other games don't?
    My answer: Realism.

    The gameplay offered from Siege is a masterclass of tactical response to various terrorist threats. It throws you into their world and the sheer suspense of some of the rounds I've played are immense.

    I have spent many online days playtime on Call of Duty, so I'm not discrediting the series, but many people I have spoken to compare this game with Search and Destroy game modes from Call of Duty. Whilst I see their logic, I believe it's a faulty one; Search and Destroy doesn’t offer the same amount of pressure that Siege does. You can’t run into a room with Siege and take everyone out with superhuman abilities, then call in your autonomous killstreak drone to earn your nuke – it’s just not that type of game.

    Siege rewards players when they take their time, plan and execute their plan perfectly.

    Whilst playing Siege, I have never died when it wasn’t my fault; whereas with Call of Duty/Battlefield this is often the case.

    I see myself playing Siege many years into the future and looking back with fond memories. The players who critique this game the most are probably those who haven’t played it and want to keep buying the same Call of Duty every year.

    I wish I could give this game a positive review. I am a huge Rainbow Six Vegas fan and Tom Clancy games in general. Considering this game at full price, giving it a positive review would be a lie.
    First, there is no campaign.
    Second, there are basically 3 modes--attack and defend, hostage extraction, and king of the hill. The objective for each one of these modes is always within a room

    First, there is no campaign.
    Second, there are basically 3 modes--attack and defend, hostage extraction, and king of the hill. The objective for each one of these modes is always within a room so there's not a whole lot of variety when planning an attack other than breaching in. The variety is limited by which operator you choose...
    Third, the customization that was in previous Rainbows is replaced by these operators. Personally, I like to create my own soldiers and enjoyed doing so on Rainbow Six Vegas and RSV2. Each operator comes with a few certain select guns and items, and you cannot customize the appearance of the operator.

    As far as gameplay goes, it feels like an average first person shooter once you actually find an enemy. It takes one bullet to the head to confirm a kill and you have to react quickly to survive. Spraying and praying can be just as effective here as in other popular FPS's. Since the objectives are located in a certain room of the map, defenders will camp and hide around the objective more times than not. Luckily, there are a several infiltrating operator abilities to help counter this camping. Attacking the defending team can be fun when the teamwork is there and you can avoid some of the overpowered defender abilities (Frost.)

    Matchmaking is awful and it takes sometimes several minutes to get into a ranked game.

    Maps are fun to conquer, situations are really good and shame not more, as fun training levels

    Multi is where its all hit and miss.
    MP is core and important, the big problems lie in constant server issues, where games wont even connect or online just stops.
    If in a match that suddenly gets 1 sided, it stough really.
    ppl often drop out, more so on CASUAL, or even team kill, and then thats it, good luck !
    CASUAL does not punish, RANKED does, and sometimes its truly frustrating.
    The patches have been quite good, changing or nerfing weapons and adding gadgets effectiveness is all good.
    it sjust the players that tend ot let the game down, other than server issues, and i think CASUAL play, as quick to connect as it is, is let down by other players, with no penalty. Renown penalty is pretty dire, and the 15 mins RANKED block is good, but if ya get kicked cos some loony runs in front of ya shot, and hey ho, kick him !

    Yet this again brings back how good the game is. No wild firing, need to watch where bullets fly, tactics and movement and watchign all sides, instead of run and gun, that ends horribly.
    so yes, im still addicted, has its flaws, and yet there is a great game here
