Not really. He was checking to see if FSAA and HDR were both working from what I can tell.

Yeah, the settings say that both are enabled but as you can see.. no HDR. In fact, nothing happens if you deactivate AA either.


And if you check wikiedia for games using SM3 and SM2 HDR, R6:Lockdown is not one of them. STrange.

I remember reading a review that said R6: Lockdown was awful. I think it said they had taken away the bit where you plan your mission beforehand. Is that true?

What's going to rock is Rainbow 6 Vegas.

Yep, its the usual console dumb-down. I think the claimed the real reason was to make it more action-filled but the AI is as moronic as usual and there are no fun gunfights, either you shoot them in the head or they shoot you in the head.

What reall annoys you though, is that theyve ****ed up how you shoot. You lean round a corner and double-tap your mouse to take down a baddie but the game lags and only lets you fire a single shot... sometimes it does fire all the shots but in a lagged staccato so you miss what you aim at. It works fine in full auto but being all cool and commando by using single fire is out of the question.

I just made a quick visit to R6's official forums and found out it has respawning! WTF. How can a tactical shooter have respawning?

How can a franchise that's been on consoles as well as PCs for years only be dumbed down now? There's gotta be a different reason.

Little things like that mean nothing. It's clearly a console dumb down.

I think the thing is that previous Rainbow 6 titles like Ravenshield were developed for the PC and then ported to consoles, whereas Lockdown was designed for consoles from the beginning and thus more action and less planning.

I'd be much more willing to concede that Lockdown was made as a quick cash-in to get more out of the franchise.

But hey, you have to try to bash consoles some how right?

Judging by that screenshot, it looks like something made 2 years ago.

That's purely because it's a console game! Not a game that was rushed to make a quick buck!

Umm since it's a port of a console game with no extra graphix, then it was rushed to make a quick buck! :rolleyes:

The graphics are actually very nice, it does not look 2 year old ingame. But seriously, what other reason could they have for simplifying gameplay other than to compete with action shooters? And if you remove features from a game without adding anything, thats dumbing down.

Hey I checked the game out and the graphics are pretty good. Is it worth getting?
