Rainbow Six: Vegas
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!
<Insert Title Here>
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.
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.
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!
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
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.
Another Hit for Tom Clancy
There has never been a crummy Tom Clancy game and this is no exception. For newcomers to video game shooters this is an excellent game to own. The story is "A" typical for Tom Clancy. Ubisoft does a great job transferring his concept from books to games and just like Tom's books this game deals with terrorism. Starting in Mexico and Ending in Nevada. The action is solid. There are a few improvements from the earlier Rainbow Six games. You can peer around corners and shoot while concealed, invert your climb down to shoot unsuspecting terrorist and you can heal your teammates although, one you gonna wish you can shoot he get hurts so much. The downside to the game, there are only two settings Normal and Realistic, which may deter some players. And you can not save as you go. You have to get to a checkpoint before the game will auto save. Most players can live with those issues. This is a thinking man's game. So if you love rushing out blasting everything in sight, I have news for you, You can't do that in this game. Patience is the key to playing and enjoying a Tom Clancy game. The multiplayer is fun and challenging. You can play on or offline. The achievements you can unlock are very satisfying. I just wished that your character could run like in CoD. Get this game and have fun controlling your unit. I recommend this game to anyone player new or seasoned.
tom clancy is awesome!!!
best game in the history of chicken!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
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.
