Summary: Insgesamt stellt 'Rainbow Six 3' auf PS2 eine passable Umsetzung des Xbox-Hits dar und bietet viel Action für alle Tom Clancy-Fans. Die spannenden Missionen machen trotz der mageren KI Laune und in höheren Schwierigkeitsgraden müsst ihr recht vorsichtig vorgehen.
Pros: realistische Umgebung, lange Missionen, viele Zwischensequenzen, abwechslungsreicher Online-Modus, schöne Licht- und Schatteneffekte
Cons: lange Ladezeiten, niedrige Framerate, mangelhafte KI, hin und wieder kleinere Slowdowns
