I thought the last good Rainbow Six game was Raven Shield. Did I miss something?

Rainbow Six Vegas is more of an arcadey game(Health regeneration, no more one hit kill) compared to the true spirit of Rainbow Six. (Tactical map plannings, outfits for respective members)

 

Its not a bad game and its fun as an action game by its own right with a cover system that is arguebly better implemented than Gears of War.

 

HOWEVER.

 

Their blasphemous behavior of providing TERRIBLE, HORRENDOUS, SHAMEFUL support with HALF-HEARTED implementation for multiplayer options and interface for the PC port is something I find it IMPOSSIBLE to forgive.

 

Grrr, I'm still so pissed.

I never liked any of these RB6 games. SWAT is still a lot better. UBI better should announce Beyond Good & Evil 2....now that would get me excited.

 

The first SWAT games couldn't hold a candle to Rainbow Six and Rogue Spear.

R6 Vegas is much more actionlike with the cover system and everything. I loved it all the way until it became so repetitive that I couldnt stand it despite the excellent firefights. It felt alot like the designers had simply put a few random enemies into the maps and said "Yup, I figure this is all we need". You need scripted events and fun stuff happening to maintain the excitement. I hope they have learned their lesson with the sequel

 

 

But the gun control and sound effects are the best in the bussiness. Theyve always put a ton of effort into getting the guns to feel and sound right in the R6 and GR games, and R6V is top dog. The sound designers at Ubisoft should get a medal.

I bought the new installment of Ghost Recon on the strength of their past games, god that was awful. I have no cause to think anything other than that they will slaughter Rainbow six as well.

 

The ONLY strength of those games was the close adherence to realism and tactical combat, one hit and you're dead. Now it's your basic run of the mill console stupid pretty blonde of a game.

They have pretty much put there eggs in the console basket, so I'd definitely avoid them unless you own a console. Still, Rainbow Six Vegas is a better multiplayer game for my money than Halo 3. More tactics and use of cover make it a tad more believable than the run and gun titles.

R6V was fun until, as Kaftan suggested, the fights all became pretty run-of-the-mill. It wasn't like the old R6 games at all, but it was still a satisfying light tactical shooter. Some of the scenarios were a little annoying because they essentially forced you to do things you were trained not to do (put the whole squad in a very vulnerable position), but overall it was enjoyable. Hopefully the sequel will build upon the good stuff they had in the first title.

I've been mad at the franchise ever since planning mode for Raven Shield stopped working for me. :(
