Rated 10 out of 10 by Equilibrius VEGAS 2 is prolly the best multi-co-op shooter
My problem with Vegas 2 for the PC is the Controller! You need to by a Microsoft 360 controller for windows which costs roughly 56$. Now i like using my mouse and keyboard, but sometimes i would like to sit back and play and not sit so close to my monitor. And the whole wireless keyboard and mouse thing isnt as responsive at a greater distance. I think Ubisoft has created an illegal monopoly with this terrible feature. They need to allow Logitech controllers. I feel they need to be sued! Other than that, this game rocks! Im not interested in storylines when im playing a shooter, who cares. Story lines are for adventure games. THis game is great for those who like to play shooters with their buddies. I also like the Wall cover feature, making it look realistic. The gameplay is addicting. First week i didnt sleep! They need to add more weapons and features, but keep the WALLCOVER! shooter games lack this! It helps, and makes it interesting!
Rated 1 out of 10 by J. Clark I hope Mr. Clancy is getting paid ALOT
Because this game is, as well as the previous Vegas 1 and Lockdown, an embarrassment for Ubisoft. First off, it's another console port. But big picture-wise, this is UBI's 2nd failed attempt to make a COD4/Halo2/TF2 clone and appeal to those crowds (and that profit), while at the same time crapping all over a respected franchise that, before UBI acquired it, people knew what they were getting for their money. The gameplay has changed so much from what R6, Rogue Spear, and Raven Shield were that it is almost unrecognizable (unless of course you play the aforementioned games). The single player campaign is mindlessly boring and contrived, and the multi-player, which used to be the meat-n-potatoes of Rainbow Six games and what kept them fun 1 and 2 years after release, is still, after 2 or 3 auto-downloadable patches, in shambles and flat out not fun. Don't buy this. It's not Tom Clancy, and it's definitely not Rainbow Six.
Rated 4 out of 10 by RSV1 Fan Not as good as I thought
I am a HUGE fan of RSV1 but mainly the online play...especially the attack and defend mode. On RSV2 the online mode in my opinion is very poor, limited respawns on attack and defend, I don’t get it. Why not let the host of the room decide what he wants to play and have unlimited as an option. and why not bring back the calypso casino, that is the most played map on the first game and I know there are ALOT of people disappointed that the map is not there and once again a lot more people are upset about the respawns. I myself enjoy the story mode but I buy games mainly for online play, you can only play story mode for so long before it gets boring. I also enjoy the terrorist hunt and like the new ranking system but even all of that cannot convince me to play the online play, I have returned to RSV1 to play attack and defend as well have many others. Honestly I wish I could have my money back, I have stopped playing the game about 3 days after I bought it....Maybe they can put a patch through to fix all of this I am not sure but something needs to be done...
Rated 1 out of 10 by Destry Still looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!!
I was hoping for a product that would be a follow-up to "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas" not one that in every respect looks and plays like it came before "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas" ! The graphics are reminiscent of those of 5-6 years ago, dropped weapons and AIs lying/standing "on the ground" about 4 inches above the surface. Sooooo many doors to breech, no ability to go prone, unable to jump small furniture or walls, still can't send members of the team to separate locations........also, it would have been nice to be able to save the game at more frequent intervals. With games like "Crysis" and "Call of Duty 4" now with us, "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2" is a huge disappointment for me, both in graphics and storyline. The game is also significantly shorter than expected.
Rated 9 out of 10 by TrenD A Great follow up to the original
I played R6V1 when it came out and for many months after its release. Granted there were plenty of bugs and problems with it, the graphics were not nearly as good as they should've been. Especially in comparison to the 360 version. Now that I have played this one (R6V2) I am very very very happy. I have the graphics turned all the way up to full and they are crisp and look great. The game play is much like the first one, as one would expect in a sequal, with a new feature (sprint), with sprint added to the cover system it makes the combat exciting and intense. Yes just one feature does that. I have enjoyed hours of coop online play and regular TDM play. This is definately a good buy. I suggest it to anyone who loves the R6 series or any kind of tactical shooter. 9/10
Rated 0 out of 10 by Old R6 Vet Agree with old school players
I completely agree that R6 has declined 10 fold after raven shield, I am tired of all these new games having the health regen, whatever happened to fighting your way to the end with no health packs and praying that some guy doesn't take out you or a team mate near the end. I hoped Vegas would be good, but was hugely let down, and I doubt Begas 2 will be much different. I think the only reason that I can't stand to play shooters anymore, is because they all feel like watered down versions of what I used to play, they all feel empty and just 1 huge thing of eye candy with no strategy. These "new gen" kids need to wake up and stop buying the same game with different titles, then companies might go back to producing quality games.
Rated 0 out of 10 How is it tactical?
Shooting around walls is not tactical, nor is being able to blind fire. I did enjoy vegas 1 but r6 is definitely not the tactical shooter it used to be. It's pretty much on the same path as the Ghost Recon games, which are a lot more run and gun ever since Ghost Recon 2 came out. Even though I would like for a tactical shooter to come out from r6 again, I still want to play Vegas 2. Main downfall I find with Vegas 1 and hopefully won't be with Vegas 2, although I highly doubt it, is that some people's machines can't run it. I can run every other modern game that has come out, but I couldn't run Vegas 1. All the next generation stuff is nice, but they should try to appeal to a broader range of people.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Nate Prove me wrong
Prove us all wrong by actually releasing a game that is good!!!! Because UBI has killed every Tom Clancy game since/after RvS last time they wanted our feedback we gave it to them I was actually part of it but it fell on deaf ears/eyes yes you can not make every one happy but they did not even take any bit of our ideas for those of us who play MULTIPLAYER, if any of us just wanted a single player experiance we would all just switch to consoles. Why can't these game makers understand PC gamers play Multi-Player more then those who play single player! This time around PROVE us WRONG but I wont be buying this game until I hear positive feed back from the suckers who rushed to get it.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Bandit<HSDWG> Think about this...
One of the biggest things that killed Vegas for a lot of clans was not the game play, it was the total lack of server support. I have a clan that has been playing the R6 series since the day of msn game zone, we all enjoy the series and where it has gone. However if a game is going to be truly successful then they need to make sure we have a way of admining the game properly. This isn't a request this is a requirement, so before anyone purchases this game take the time to read the forums at ubi.com and make sure we are going to have some control ... just my 2 cents.

I just hope the game does not have the issues that that the first one had. I really hoping for the ability to have hosted servers unlike the first one did not have at all. The Unreal 3 engine is a great engine and will look a lot better since its now complete. But only time will tell, they really need to stop this kiddie health regen crap go back to what made it a true tactical game. I know I hear plenty of KIDS says it better now with it. They will never understand what the veterans of the game are looking for and what a real tactical game is. Ubi has one last chance to get it right in my mind.
