    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.

You can’t just walk into the building without taking the time to find the people and kill them. While doing so quietly because sound is a big part of the game sound is really important for when someone one is near you whether they be on the other side of the wall or behind you sound will be a big factor in your gameplay. So in conclusion, I recommend this game because you will either feel good when finished playing or feel disappointed depending on the effort put into your gameplay

    What's involved in the game
    The strategy that must be put into eliminating the opposite team
    You have to manage the recoil of your weapon
    You have to have good aim to kill the other person before he kills you
    You have to find out where the enemy team is located by using a drone or cameras depending on whether your attacking or defending
    You will also be equipped with a variety of gadgets
    depending on which character you are will depend on what gadgets you will use. An example of the gadgets would be stuff like a nitro cell, grenade, riot shield, bear trap, gu mines, claymores and many more
    it’s a 5v5 swat team vs terrorists
    First person shooter
    A headset is almost a requirement for this game

    A MUST HAVE FOR OLD SCHOOL SHOOTER FANS

    Tactical smart multiplayer that relies on team work and strategy. Gameplay really stands out of the crowd in the day of fast pace shooters. Fun levels that have high replayablilty do to the destructible environments ( making every game feel different from the last). My only issue with the game is the spotty lag occasionally but I assume will be worked out in the coming weeks.

    I'm having the same issue as always where I really want to give this game an 8 or 9 because I am a huge fan of the Rainbow Six series, butI'm having the same issue as always where I really want to give this game an 8 or 9 because I am a huge fan of the Rainbow Six series, but this game just reeks of Ubisoft, and they've done things that warrant a 7/10.
    My biggest issue (which might be fixed) is the servers, during the Beta and even the full game, the servers are as stable as a house of toothpicks, I've noticed that Ubisoft could never handle multiplayer games without them killing themselves; nevertheless, I am 'almost' certain that this issue will be rectified.
    My other primary complaint is how there's less customization and freedom, I'm noticing a very bullsh*t theme with all the new releases, why is it that all the older games in the franchise had more player freedom? they did this in Battlefront 3, Fallout 4, and Black Ops 3. what the hell is going on?
    20 operatives with sparse customization? no thanks.

    I also have some small complaints. on the backs of the Spetsnaz members, in Russian it reads FSB.
    FSB is an entirely different thing, that's like being a Navy seal, but having SWAT on your back.
    also it just bothers me to see 5 assorted CTUs shooting at other CTUs, why? you couldn't make terrorist skins?
    I do like how each charachter has a unique name that means something in their colloquial language.
    Kapkan means trap, and he sets down tripwires. and Tachanka roughly means cart with gun, or gun cart. the word came from the Russian civil war, when calvary men would put a maxim heavy machine gun on a cart and attach it to a horse. and Glaz, which means eye (because he's a sniper, get it? kek). then you have Montagne, which means Mountain. I don't speak German so I couldn't tell you about them, but I am almost certain they mean something too, it's just the little things that make it so much better.
    I think I've been ripping on the game too much, but rest assured, I absolutley love this game, it's brilliant, and as a reviewer below me pointed out, it IS a nice change to see a game that isn't mindless bullet parties like COD or BF, I just hope that COD players stay the hell away from this game. I have lots of fun playing this game and every kill feels earned, not cheap. and every time you wipe a squad, you feel like a bonafide badass. the game has that whole Battlefield moment sudden rush, if you don't know what that is, it's just when you get one of those moments that make the game a whole lot more exciting, almost cinematic at times.

    I am actually done with reviewing the game itself, but I have one last grievance.
    So I've heard people compare this to CS:GO, and that's wrong, but not in the way you think, this game is actually more intense and demanding then CS:GO, this game requires actual roles and objective managment, so it requires a competent intelligent team, one f*ck up, and you're dead, this game requires full attention and skill. but that's just the thing, on Xbone, it's cancer central, everyone who I end up in a lobby with is a moron or doesn't speak english, get it on PC.
    also I get 30fps on terrorist assault, okay I'm done.

    I have never played a worse game. This game literally makes me cringe harder than call of duty infinite warfare did. Not only is the gameI have never played a worse game. This game literally makes me cringe harder than call of duty infinite warfare did. Not only is the game buggy, broken, and unfair but, the game is still trash even after 2 years of being out. Ubisoft completely destroys any game they touch excluding the single player based games. Montreal needs to get there head out of the trash they call siege and start fixing all the crap they screwed up. It's an 18 year old game yet 12 year olds are the entire demographic. If I had a penny for every kid I've met in this half-assed game I'd have enough money to buy Ubisoft and Ubisoft Montreal just to tear it to the ground. All in all the games worth a free price tag, .5 stars, and a fully loaded gun to the head. Expand
