The Best of the Best
5 July 2011
Summary: I've played every single kind of FPS from the heavily saturated Battlefield Series games to the overwhelmingly popular Call of Duty series. Here are the problems I've always had with those other games: they're always unrealistic no matter how hard they try. In Call of Duty: Black OPS for example, you still have to shoot someone 5-6 times with an assault rifle from two feet away just to kill them.
Summary: Best of the rainbow six games. Reminds me of the good old days playig SWAT3. Worth the money if you like tactical shooters. A little dated though, but in my opinion is the last of the good R6 games. The vegas games killed the series.
Still good but not as good as the original or Rogue Spear

Summary: Well, this version of Rainbow Six really upped the 1st person shooter experience. With better graphics, new weapons and what not, it is definitely an improved gaming experience. But the game isn't as much fun as the original or as Rogue Spear. Once you play through the mission, few of the maps are all that interesting to play through again in any mode.
Summary: People are making a mistake when they say that this is a game. Its not. Its an experience! The one that makes you want to feel every time you die so you can enjoy it even more when you enter the mission again. It sure has some flaws like an unrealistically ruthless precision of terrorist weapons and a stupid hostage AI but not rating this game with 10 would be something I would be ashamed of. This game is a legend that will always be playable so therefore... "Alpha...
One of the most sophisticated tactical shooters I've seen.

Summary: This review is strictly from the single player perspective. In terms of sheer sophistication and modes of play, this game is way ahead of anything else I've played (up to now, anyway). While I'm more of a run-and-gun enthusiast, this game is impressive by any standard. I played this in the campaign mode which consists of fifteen missions tied together by a single story line.
Not the last of the series...but the last of it's kind.

Summary: I cannot stress this enough: Liking this game is no indication of liking Rainbow's more recent titles. The Vegas series, and Lockdown, to an extent, are only comparable for being FPS games, and that's where any real meaningful comparison ends. With Raven Shield you have full-sized tactical squads, planning, and a weapons selection and load out that actually makes a difference beyond simply being aesthetically pleasing.
