Summary: I am a big fan of both squad-based cambat, and open-world games. I have been searching for an experiance equal to the Ghost Recon series games for some time. Rainbow six 3 is not it. Absolutely not open-world at all, very linear. As a squad-based tactical shooter, I found it was sub-par.
Summary: This is a pretty good game with pretty good levels, a competitive Al, and ok graphics. A lot of die hard Tom Clancey fans hate this game. I'm not one of them though but I have played my share of them Splinter Cell, etc....
Falls short of the X-Box version, but not a bad port overall

Summary: In the past, I have not been a big fan of the Rainbow Six series...but after playing the X-Box version of Rainbow Six 3, I was quite impressed. The plethora of selectable weapons and realistic environments adds a new twist on the first person shooter genre, allowing the player to guide a team of 3...
Summary: As the godfather of the squad based counter terror game, I admit that I expected some big things from Rainbow Six 3. But instead what I got was what can be described as alot of good ideas that unfortunately aren't executed very well.
Excerpt: Since i bought this game 2 years ago it has remained my favourite without any other game even coming close. i have completed the game several times on all difficulties and am still not bored of it.
Pros: many features and great interaction with environment and team members
Excerpt: In an epic storyline approved by Tom Clancy himself, the player will become part of Team RAINBOW finding themselves in an intense situation. OPEC has boycotted the United States for their actions in the Middle East.
Excerpt: Rainbow Six 3 (RS3) for the PS2 is a stripped down version of the Xbox version. Ubisoft couldn't use the same graphical techniques for this platform but made up for it with added things such as multi-player splitscreen action.
Pros: Very Enjoyable, Comprehensive Shoot - Em - Up, 2 Player Co - op Mode
Summary: this game is great if you like tacticle shooters like me but if you like the good old shooting anything in site i wouldn't waste your money . even though the bodys look a bit blocky the graphics are pretty good .
Summary: OK I'm going to be fair and not compare this to previous R6 titles too much otherwise I would slate it for having gone very linear with it's gameplay! :o( Have only played the first few levels of this so this is based on first impressions.
