This is a good game, graphics are great for a 2006 game. The missions are challenging and fun but you got to think about tactics in order to survive. Personally when I'm assaulting i like using sniper riffles and light machine guns and when infiltrating i like using Assault Riffles and Sub-Machine Guns with silencers. In the game you don't unlock weapons but enemies always drop guns most of the time they'll be one you have unlocked but other times they will be new weapons. if you don't pay attention to this you might miss out on a few great weapons like the P90, XM-26 LSS (Fully Automatic Shotgun), Shield, Raging Bull. On another note The Raging Bull or Desert Eagle with the shield make a deadly duo because both of these handguns have deadly power and you can hit enemies dead on while walking up to them because the shield protects. The only thing that is disappointing is most of the achievements are online based so to people who don't feel the need for xbox live will miss out on points. Good Hunting.
Rated 10 out of 10 by shooterfan159 Best Rainbow Ever
Wow! This game rocks. The storyline is awesome. You chase after a terrorist named irene and you chase her from mexico where she captures your team then to las vegas, where she plans to do something with it i don't know what. The graphics are incredible. The sound is amazing. The weapons look very realistic and handle well. Your teammates are smart and can handle themselves in most situations, but you will have to give them a hand here and there and when one gets shot down you have to heal him which is good but the weird thing is if you get shot down you die and can't get healed. But that only makes the game harder. A good thing about this game is the fact that unlike the other rainbows you actually get a checkpoint before major battles. This game is very challenging and will have you dying a lot and thinking about how to get past certain spots. Overall i would recommend this game to anyone who likes first person shooters with a cover system which is a good one. 10/10.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Total and complete gangsta Good not great
This is a type of game that is good if you really like to just tell your squad where to go and hope they don't get hurt. You will spend most of the game staying behind a wall or a car or anything. You usually just peak around corners and tell your guys to do all of the work. If one of your men does get hurt, make sure you have smoke grenades! You just throw one where the hurt man is and tell the other guy to heal him. Don't get me wrong, the game has fabulous graphics and pretty good AI, but you just do't do much except when you are insde the underground caves. Your squad will be taken away from you and you will be left with a pistol. It took me a while to get past that, but that is the only time when you really have to do much.So, in conclusion, the game has good graphics, pretty good AI, fairly decent story line (How did terrorist get in Vegas and Why Vegas?), and you spend most of the time just ordering other people around. So, overall about a 6.5 - 7 out of 10
Rated 9 out of 10 by casualgamer Great game, ignore these other reviews!
Alright, you have to cut this game some slack, it was made in 2003. The graphics arnt up to todays standards but this is one of the best tactical shooters I have ever played. The concept is amazing, counter terrorism unit in Las Vegas. The gameplay mechanica are amazing too. Yes there are some glitches but the gameplay surpasses this imensly. Multiplayer is the best part of the game, but sadly the servers are slowly shutting down leaving only a few hundred online. The player customization it GREAT, this game is like a tactical Call of Duty. The customization includes hunderds of armor types and colors along with about 40 guns to use ... all with their oun custom attachments. The gameplay involves posting up on walls and trying to draw your opponent out. It takes about 2 games to get used to but it is a GREAT game. My only problem with the game is that the map Calypso Casino is played non-stop in the ranked matches ... gets a bit tiring. Great game though, I would recomend it to the whole world if I could!
Rated 10 out of 10 by NBAamir47 Wow best rainbow i have played so far!
Wow, Wow, Wow. the challenge is good. u can easily kill the enemys but they can be really challenging. Trust me, they use grenades and automatic weapons at the same time so u have to take cover quickly. the graphics are amazing. the people look real with their facial expressions and looks. The guns look like u can take them out of the screen and hold them! the responsiveness is good. The storyline is incredible. Chasing terrorists from Mexico to casinos all over las vegas but there is also 1 mission on a dam in the mountains. the game was also a little short. there were a couple levels with a bunch of missions in them, like say.... 6 levels with 4 missions in each. GET IT. The controls were amazing. nothing wrong with them. The interface was very good. The sound was beastly. the gun sounds were amazing. From load snipers and machine guns to silenced MP5s. Oh yes, that reminds me, you can also attach things to ur guns like silencers, acog scopes, red dot laser sight, 6x and 12x scopes, things like that!! ITS AMAZING!
Rated 9 out of 10 by schug.z this game is fun
I got this game a little after it came out and I played for well over a month. It kept me entertained with different levels with a lot of diversity. There are many weapon choices and the weapon customization is also a cool feature. While the storyline is a bit bad that doesn't really matter much to me I just thought it was awesome. But I think you play as a swat type of guy who deals with a terrorist group known as the tengos. this game is two player so that should also be very fun. Other features are a mini game where you have to hunt and kill like 20 terrorists without dying which is challenging. The cover system is really great and there is so many ways to play a level like throwing a smoke grenade and turning on thermal vision or sending a member to a specific spot to cover you. Another bad thing is your teammates die way to quickly from enemies which gets annoying because then you have to et out of cover and revive them because if send a teammate to do they usually die to. From casinos, to wastelands, to clubs you will have a lot of fun with this game.
Rated 9 out of 10 by cody m COULD USE A LITTLE WORK NOT MUCH JUST A LITTLE
THIS GAME IS PRETTY GOOD NOT THE BEST BUT PRETTY GOOD.its not as good as the second because it lacks alot of features like character customization and the graphics are not near as good.if you like tactical shooters get the second one dont go and save up the money for this but if you just have eight bucks layin around why not just pic it up its not that bad its worth the price but if you are gonna save up for a tactical shooter and you want the best one get the second one its worth more than twenty bucks but what a great deal but this game is not the best to me but i cant decide for you its your decision to decide if you like this game or not its worth the price but im tellin you if you want one of the rainbow six games get vegas 2 its alot better but again you decide watch one you want.
Rated 9 out of 10 by bobjones pretty dang good
This game is great for giving you a challenge when playing. The game is about a bomb about to be set off by Irene something and along the way Logan has to go along with his teammates Juno and Michael to rescue his others teammates by going through different casinos and killing the terrorists along the way. The settings are the campaign mode and terrorist hunt where you kill like 20 to 60 terrorists that are free roaming on 1 life. The graphics are great and the sound isn't bad either. The online is pretty good too. The game can take you about 10 hours and has two difficultly settings, realistic and regular which both will give you a challenge. This game is not for kids under 15 because of alot of swearing. Overall this is a great game and for $30 is a great deal.
Rated 5 out of 10 by witch hunter Could be a lot better
This game, Rainbow six vegas, was one of the hardest shooters I have ever played. It is hard because it would take at least two shots to kill you. When enemies are around, you would have to take cover immedietly if they see you. You would have to kill enemies quickly if they don't know you are around. The violence isn't that realistic because when you shoot a guy, a little bit of blood would splat on the wall. The graphics weren't that good because at the beginning of the game, you fight in Mexico. All the colors of the buildings are the same color. The color of the sky and inside the buildings were all in the same color family too. The graphics could be much better. The terrorist hunt was a good addition for the game. If I were to rate this game, i would give it a 5 out of 10.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Clarkey A very good FPS in a neat environment
I usually write really long, rambling reviews but I'll keep this one brief. As of today, at least, (Jan2012) this game goes for 3 bucks I believe. You should go pick it up if you don't already have it. It's a very good first person shooter with a good weapon variety, cool environments (fighting in casinos, on the strip), decent enemy AI..... this game was HOT when it first came out (if I remember correctly...) but getting a good-to-great FPS for $3 is a no-brainer. For 3 bucks you'll be getting a decently long single player campaign... I'm doubting that people are still playing this online but you never know. Oh yeah, and it's THREE DOLLARS. In terms of the "Fun-Per-Dollar" ratio this one ranks up there. A nice game to fill out you collection.
