Rated 9 out of 10 by badass1334 This game is good
I love this game, I know its very different from call of duty, but i prefer their controls and I had to change them to something similar. Other than that its a good game that could use work on story and sound because the story doesn't make much sense unless you played the first Vegas and the focus was obviously multiplayer which is phenomenal because the experience points you get in one mode carries over to every other one, it uses the same exact music as the first Vegas which makes it a bit repetitive and somewhat annoying if you played the first game. I love the gameplay, it plays and feels unique compared to other shooters and not just another call of duty clone like Wolfenstein or Medal of Honor. I feel as if official critics have underrated this game. I still play this game and I recommend it to anyone who likes online shooters and people who don't mind the health system because you will be dying A LOT if you don't take cover and USE IT WISELY. Have Fun!
Rated 9 out of 10 by Packers21 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).
Rated 8 out of 10 by Gun_Rover Its a nice game
Me and Gun_Rose _Blaze have mutual feelings about this game. The storyline was very short and was even normal difficulty on a hard difficulty. It is not a very tactical game online because most people just run around and try to take on more people at a time. Usually every time me and Gun played we found a lot of people who talked smack and thought they could take on everything in sight, but they were sorely mistaken. So if you play this game and think you can take on everybody online, you just might get mad so I suggest that you get a good feel for the game and make sure you can cope with the twits and rednecks and all of the weirdos on that game that you might find. Me and Gun have stopped playing it because it basically got too easy online and offline. So if you put a lot of time into the game you might just be one of those guys who know it all and played it all and can pick up where your fallen brothers have died.
Rated 9 out of 10 by SwordblazerEx More of a tactical game.
All of the previous reviews seem kind of biased. Either they like it or hate it. But I have played the first game, and I am a fan of all first person shooters. The game is not for everyone. It involves more thinking than sharpshooting. The point of the game is to add real-time strategy and shooting. So it's not supposed to be a run-n-gun. It takes patience, and your actions will have an effect on the enemies. Wisely choosing your rules of engagement and then executing the plan is key to advancing in the game. Your teammates will take on the multitude of enemies while you think a step ahead. As for the actual look of the game, I think it's OK. The graphics are far better than the first if you pay attention, and the controls reply well but are a bit difficult to remember. The story is dramatic and suspenseful. My problem with the game is the sound. It can be a bit difficult to understand the characters.
Rated 10 out of 10 by CH3VY64 DIFFERENT
I had a lot of fun planning and carrying out strategys like how too enter a room and attack the enemy, weather to use silencers, night vision, or weapons free. I personally liked the new additions to the game which are player custamuzation, the cool thing about it, is that using the playstation eye you can integrate your face to your character, mine worked out pretty good it really looks like me. And A.C.E.S which are skill points that are used too unlock guns and armor. They are a great addition to the challenging and fun experience of the game.Those experiences, set vegas apart from all the other shooters out there. Controls work well and the sound is very realistic, but the graphics could of use a little more work. Other then that vegas is a great game, with a good story and an addictive multiplayer experience, That im sure it i'll have you playing this game for months, maybe even years.
Rated 7 out of 10 by havoc_121 my opinion
rainbow six vegas 2 is a tactical FPS (first person shooter) and the sequel to the original rainbow six vegas. ok, first off, i heard alot of people say this game's hard, no my friends it's REALISTIC. you wouldn't get shot twenty times in the chest and survive like most FPS shooters. i guess the controls are alright, but i think most people are used to controls like those of COD Waw (call of duty world at war). the graphics are... decent, not like the ps2's but not like killzone's. know what i mean? i never finished the campaign but it seemed like it could go on for a long time though. i don't thnk it's very bloody and there's no gore, but i don't know about the language i don't think i heard many over the short time i had it. (i rented it) it's challenging to me because i'm used to run-and-gun kinda shooters but if u charge in guns blazing YOU WILL DIE. it's very stratigic and there's some stealth too. overall it's a fun tactical FPS, (it may be frustrating at first and seem hard but you'll get used to it) i thought it was cool and i hope so do you. this is havoc_121, happy gaming!

this game is great may be frustrating at times but that's what makes it so good it offers great game play outstanding co-op play and more download content for free the graphics are good very good but nothing special the length of the game is infinitely long from the still growing co-op game modes like terrorist hunt and co-op campaign you'll be playing this forever the story line is good but if your fixed on heart pounding combat then it may be hard to follow the controls are different but the basics are easy and it still work for the game play and if your familiar with the controls then you can do extra things like preview rooms before infiltrating the interface is good no problems at all easy to use and works for all game modes the sound is great you hear gunshots echo of walls the sound adds the in tenseness and power this game needed to be one of the best shooters out their
Rated 10 out of 10 by *TRS*Silvraven Excellent Experience!
Rainbow Six Vegas 2 is probably the best Playstation 3 game out there right now. It is very challenging, graphics are pretty good and the controls are really smooth. They fixed a lot of issues with the first game. People seem to think that its just an upgraded version of the first one but, it really isn't. There are a lot of differences plus they kept all the good maps from the first one and added a whole new set. The challenges are pretty cool, they tried to compete with Call of Duty 4 but its not as deep. The only downsides to the game is that some of the online servers are still laggy. This isn't really a problem with the game though, what most people don't know is, the host seems to have no lag at all so thinks his server is fine but everyone else can't move an inch without teleporting. Overall, game is near perfect and I recommend people of any type to get it!

Rated 10 out of 10 by onlyhalftime Great Game
I think the game is great. If you play it on Easy it's not much of a challenge, but on "realistic", it's what it means. The game is kind of short, but this game is worth it just to play online. Nothing changes with online play, and my opinion the online play blows COD4 out of the water. The controls are easy, and are very easy to get used to. You unlock weapons, you rank up, you get to fully customize your character. You get to customize your guns with laser sights, different scopes, extended magazines. The graphics on the maps look great, and doesn't change with the online play. There are glitches, but every game has glitches somewhere in it. It has the regular online games, deathmatch, team death match, capture the flag (with a different spin on it). It has new online games like Attack and Defend and Team Leader. Great game. Go buy it. Now.
