Rainbow Six 3 gets things right

Summary: I love the 1st person game-play. The missions are challenging in campaign mode, you can replay each map anytime using different mission styles. In single and multi-player modes the AI on your team are easy to control. Also there is a massive arsenal to choose from. One of the best features of this game for me is the CO-OP ability to select any map and do any mission at any time. I like to play with my friend not against him.
Pros: Challenging, Co-op, Easy to Learn, Engaging Story Line, Excelent 1st person, Gameplay, Good replay value, Graphics, Great Sound, Multiplayer
Summary: This game rocks it's my first one and i pan on getting more now! I love bursting in doors and killing the terrorists or fragging them! Before your mission you can plan it and pick your weapon (tons) And the graphics are great and your computer doesn't need to be top notch. Here's some not so great things, you don't get to pick up dropped weapons. And when your auto aim locks on your gun shoots on direction and your gun is pointed 5 feet to the left of the terrorist.
Excerpt: Well, recently I have been turning to games where I actually have to think (I can hear you gasp as you read this), plan and carefully execute my missions. I done with games where I could sit up all night and completion just meant running in with the biggest weapon possible shouting "it's hammer time baby, hammer time"..
Excerpt: For me this is the definitive Rainbow Six game. It was the last one that Tom Clancy actually had an input in and boy does it show. This is the most realistic of the Rainbow Six games, so don't expect run and gun action. Instead, it is all about the planning, appropriately equipping your team and good execution. You can plan the routes of multiple teams so you can tackle a scenario in pretty much any way you please, stealthy or all out assault.
Summary: This is a pretty good game. Considering. alot of people seem to judge a game on how realistic it is, which isn't being realistic. First off, for a computer to be able to compute all the info needed for the game to be really realistic, would be too much - even for modern pcs. (2009). To be able to calculate which bullets could actually penetrate all those different types of woods, car doors, walls, etc would take quite a large computer. Then you have the AI.
Excerpt: Team Rainbow is back in the best outing yet. This time Rainbow needs to take down a neo-fascist terror network. If you’ve played the first two Rainbow Six games then you will easily be able to get into this one as the gameplay is similar but improved. For example in the first two games you had a little map that showed you your waypoints but now you get a little white indicator on the game screen to show you where to go next. It also tells you how far away it is.
Summary: The AI is so incredibly stupid in this game it makes gameplay ridiculously simple and predictable. But what is even more ridiculous is the inclusion of female team members in the game. Spare us the politically correct B.S., it makes the game a complete joke. Leave the female characters for games like Leisure Suit Larry, they don't belong in a game like this.
Conclusion: Yes, you read right. Although there have been 2 more installments in the series since this, and a multitude of spin-offs like Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 1 & 2, none of them have matched the purity and difficulty of this game.
Conclusion: The story of this game is amazing. It puts you on the front line of some crazy action and you can see first hand what its like to be there and then at the spot of whats happening. when i used to play online it was so fun and just something thats enjoyable. Overall I used to play it every night and loved every second of it.
