    Bursting through a wall with guns blazing has never been this fun. If only there were more unlockable content to work towards than what is included.

    Tactics, action and working together are the pillars of Rainbow Six Siege. Attacking and defending bring endless online fun, especially when you play with people you know in a team. If not, the bugs might make your game somewhat annoying.

    Rainbow Six: Siege may give the impression of being a work in progress still but it nevertheless delivers a tense tactical experience for those of you who will manage to play it with friends willing to participate in solid teamwork.

    Despite the barbed wire and reinforced walls that Rainbow Six Siege makes you walk through in order to get to the meat of the gameplay, I can’t stop thinking about how much fun that gameplay is.

    Tense, dramatic and unique, Rainbow Six: Siege feels and plays unlike any other shooter on the market. It’s not perfect but it can be great fun. We just wish there was more of it.

    Fans of the well-crafted, single-player campaigns of previous Rainbow Six games will find nothing of value in Siege. The short tutorial missions lack replay value, and the popular Terrorist Hunt mode, which can be played with up to five friends, gives players little options other than ramping up the difficulty. Locking players out of selecting the map they want to play on is a curious decision, as are many of the battle tactics you see the enemy A.I. employ.

    There's nothing quite like Rainbow Six Siege competitive multiplayer for shooter fans. It can be incredibly fun despite some its shortcomings, but those shortcomings are visible in a number of important areas that keep this good revival of the popular Rainbow Six franchise from being great.

    Easily the BEST First Person Shooter of this generation if not all generations.

    I bought this game on Dec 1st, 2015 and have been playing it since then religiously. For a good reason. There is nothing like this out there. In fact one of the very few games where their unique player count has been increasing since the release. This only happens when a game is THIS good and improves over time.

    The Operator system is one of the best things ever happened to gaming. Yes it is a hero system but done so well that it changes the game play each time a new operator is released.

    It is like playing a game of chess and you don't know what the next move (selection) the other is going to make but according to the map, you make decisions and strategies. It is amazing.

    Love everything about this game. The game play is the best out there with single life. It should be implemented in all games moving forward as it creates more tension and you strategies are corporate more with your team.

    If one member of your team pics an operator, no body else can pick that one. THAT IS BRILLIANT as we don't end with up with 3 medics and 2 Snipers, like many other HERO games let you.

    The community is amazing as well and they play well and listen to you even if you do not know them.

    This isn't an easy pick up and play game though. It requires are learning curve and is worth taking time to learn and master.

    Maps are so amazing that I am still learning them after 4 years. Filled with details and hidden areas.

    This game really is a game of the decade in my opinion. If you want a good shooter with brains, dont look anywhere else. You are at the right place with Rainbow Six: Siege.

Rainbow Six contains countless characters to play, cosmetics to unlock, limited-time modes to try out, a large variety of maps to master, constant updates to keep you engaged, and a ranking system giving you something to work for. There is always something new to do in Rainbow Six Siege. I have played for over a year now and am still discovering new strategies. This is not your average shooter. It contains many learning curves and is much difficult than other games. This struggle is what makes defeating enemies so much more rewarding. This game includes many features I never dreamed of being in a video game before. For all these reasons you must check out Tome Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. Expand

    We all know Ubisoft is FAR from a "good" gaming company. They compare only to EA in their attempts to nickle and dime gamers. To an extent IWe all know Ubisoft is FAR from a "good" gaming company. They compare only to EA in their attempts to nickle and dime gamers. To an extent I tolerate it- if the game surrounding the DLC/microtransaction money machine is great. This is not the case.

    I understand how the industry works- I get that profits are needed in order to maintain a game company, however many companies are hugely profitable and do not even offer microtransactions and small paid DLC. Take CD Projekt Red- the give 16 free DLCs with the Witcher 3. In addition the base game is so huge that you can spend 100s of hours playing it. In other words, you get a lot of bang for your 60 bucks. And if you choose to purchase the paid DLC option- it offers you another 40 hours of additional content, which is a fair deal. $15 bucks lands you a lot of entertainment- i like that. $15 buck in Siege gets you 2 weapon skins and 1 new playable character. Awesome...

    Lets look at siege. Fun game yes- I will surrender that. It is exciting, thrilling, and offers a tactical layer to shooting that few games offer. But with pretty much NO single player content (minus an extended tutorial) and only really 1 game mode its more on tune with a 20 dollar DLC for COD rather than a stand alone AAA title. You can play every game mode and map in a day or so. So while the base content is fun- there is very little in the way of variety or scope.

    In addition they try to pry dollars out of you. Want a new operator? Pay us more... Want gun skins? Pay us more... Want new gun attachments? Pay us more... Sure you can grind for these things- but it is obviously set up to fuel microtransactions. Brand new players will spend a butt load and have a gear advantage over those playing for weeks and grinding for gear. That is not fair- the "pay to win" feature is clear here.

    Few things are needed to operate a smooth FPS multiplayer shooter. Good mechanics are key, a good leveling system is important, balanced maps that cater to multiple gameplay styles is crucial, and of course balancing between weapons/play styles. Siege has many of these things- some more than others. But what it lacks is the single most important aspect of an FPS online game- good servers. The game freezes and crashes all the time, almost EVERY SINGLE MATCH this happens to some degree. If you play using the ranked play feature (with other experienced players) then you cannot quit a match. If you do you are banned for 24 hours. So when your game freezes and no one can move or shoot then you have to sit through 7 5 minute rounds never once being able to move. If you get board and do not want to spend 35 minutes starring at the screen then you can quit and not player for 24 more hours. The "no quit" rule to ranked play is not a bad idea though- however that rule mixed with **** servers creates a lot of frustration. Inexcusable.

    Game like COD, Destiny, Battlefield, Battlefront, Evolve, and other MMOs have MUCH more strain on their servers and issues like the ones in siege are a rarity. It is clear Ubisoft cut corners in the server department and it cost the game dearly.
