Rainbow Six : Vegas 2
this is one of my favorite games
I would recommend this to anyone who loves first person shooters. This game was just shy of perfect.
One of very few great co op games
I got this game several years ago and played it with my couch co op buddy. The co op is great. You're basically swat, fighting terrorists that attack places in nevada (mainly vegas). For it's time the graphics were great, gameplay great, sound great, etc. Several years later, sure they aren't exactly up to par, but they are still good.
The co ops a lot of fun, and again the main reason i play this. Tactics is important in this game. being sneaky, keeping your heads down, communicating when you are reloading, who will provide cover, etc is important. This isn't halo or COD where you just run through guns blazing and die over and over until it finally works.
One thing i enjoy that helps this game is unlocks. You unlock guns, can modify them, and choose your load out each mission. This gives you something to work towards, and rewards your efforts. This game really makes you feel like SWAT. You don't repel down a lot of ropes, but you use flash bangs, you cuff enemies, you get dropped in via helicopter or armored personel carriers, etc. Heat vision, night vision so that you can see through smoke, etc.
The main setting is the vegas strip. weather it's inside a casino using slot machines as cover, or on the strip itself using car going cover to cover as terrorists are on the side of buildings sniping at you.
Back then this was a great game, my friend and i got roughly 40 hours of gameplay out of it before trading it in. Several years later at only 5$ a copy, i bought two copies and permanently added them to my co op section.
Now days graphics won't be up to par, game mechanics, they are higher then most games but lower then others. However at only 5 bucks, how can you go wrong right?
P.S. i recommend getting a hard copy of the game. This DL is more expensive, dl's lag more then hard copies, and you can never trade it in if you ever want to (even though a 5$ game usually goes for less then a buck).
Best shooter game ive played.
Rainbow Six Vegas is one of the best shooter games I have played. Graphics : Graphic's on a scale of 1-10 is an 8 because the graphics are good, you can defiantly tell they tried. But you have to remember, this game was made in 2008. No ones graphics were that good. Story line : The Story line is excellent. I love how you have 2 other people next to you and how you can make them do stuff such as "kill that person" or "move forward" if you like games where there's a story line, but it can go a few ways. . . this is the game for you. I love this game. Customization : If you are a gamer who likes to customize their person. This is also the game for you. You can customize from nationality, to what color knee pads your soldiers wearing. Overall this game is EXCELLENT
Praise for Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6 Vegas 2. The thrill of Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6 Vegas 2 is amazing. I love how i can customize my character and choose what he looks like. This is probably one of my favorite features about this game. The online Co-Op is a great addition to this game it is like playing online with 50 enemies that don't respawn and a small group of you who on respawn a few times. The campaign like all Tom Clancy's is great, but my favorite is online (or LAN) multiplayer. it is so much fun and I really love the maps. The guns are also very cool and I like how you can customize them from the start and not have to unlock it. This is a great game that anybody reading this should get!
Game is AWSOME
Loved the first, Made out with this one and cant wait for Rainbow Six PATRIOTS to come out so I can take it home and make love to it. But really this game is for anyone, I let my 11 year old daughter play online all the time and she loves it, Not gruesome like some of the other games and from what I can recall not really any bad language unless you start to play online and it could get a little crazy, but I oly let my daughter play online with people I have played with for awhile that know shes playing so that they can watch there language in the game. But, ya game rocks and cant wait for Patriots!!!
this game is awesome
this game is awesome. the pistol play is phenomenal. silencers add strategic capabilities. i love it
great strategy game
Unlike most shooters these days, this game requires a little bit of strategy. In it, the player controls a soldier who can issue commands to other soldiers. It takes place mainly in Las Vegas but also in some areas around it. Typically there's several ways to accomplish an objective. For example, the game often has plenty of rooms with multiple points of entry. Does your entire squad storm it at once or do you take a separate entrance from them? There's also different paths to take an objective or flank the enemy. The guns all look and sound realistic and have plenty of customization with different attachments. Players can also change their armor and face paint. The game has a pretty long and fun campaign, a side campaign called terrorist hunt where you hunt down terroists on a map over a limited amount of time. This can all be done in co-op as well. Overall, Rainbow Vegas is a great 3rd person cover based shooter that's only problem is a weak story (You probably won't get much of the story unless you get the first one).
Buy It. Just Do It.
Buy it. Or else I will stalk you to the grave, and make you eat Lima beans in the afterlife for eternity.
Please make another Rainbow 6 asap!
R6 Vegas is one of the best multiplayer shooters to date. Sure the game does not have stand out graphics or a solid campaign but, it does have some of the best multiplayer experiences. What I enjoy most about R6 vegas is the custom armor and color schemes making your player unique when playing in matches. The realism you get from the explosives and weapons are just amazing and really helps the game standout from other modern fps. Also, to be good at this game it requires good team coordination and logic unlike most popular shooters today. If you are a fps fan you will envy this game and be wanting another improved R6 like myself.
Not for all FPS fans.
If you are looking for an amazing cooperative experience different from most other FPS's, this is it. R6V2 is a worthy sequel and a great first person tactical shooter. The game is mostly centered around cooperative gameplay. You are in command of your fireteam and can order them to do basic actions like regroup, hold fire, etc. The singleplayer is the best I have ever played, you can play through it with friends online as well. There are also basic competitive multiplayer modes and unique cooperative ones. The competitive, cooperative, and singleplayer modes are all integrated together so XP gained in all modes goes towards one leveling and unlock system if I am not mistaken. The customization is the most in depth I have seen, there are ALOT of different camo's, body armor, knee pads, helmets, weapons, explosives and on and on.
