Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow
Game Over Online
27 January 2005
Excerpt: The phrase "mission pack" comes to mind. It's a very good mission pack, full of new maps and game types, but it's still a mission pack. If you liked last year's Rainbow Six 3 , you'll like Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow , because it's pretty much the same thing, right down to using the same map for its...
Excerpt: I feel like introducing a bit of context before launching into my review of the actual game. I arrived home from an extended vacation in Seattle, flying into Denver on September 11th the three year anniversary of one of our countries greatest tragedies in recent memory.
Excerpt: There are few publishers that can claim to equal Ubisoft in terms of supporting their Xbox games on LIVE. Between downloadable content and semi-sequel game releases for the fans that can't get enough, Ubisoft has provided a string of extra content for pretty much every Clancy game they've released.
Conclusion: cramped buildings. Many of the objective-based missions center around freeing hostages or defusing bombs. The enemies you’ll be facing are well-armed terrorists who will stop at nothing to take you and your team down.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Realistic military games are reaching a point of ubiquity, and it's getting harder for developers to distinguish their games from one another. In Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow , Ubisoft Montreal has combined traditional first person shooter gameplay with squad-based tactics to make one of...
Conclusion: I had a great time playing it -- in fact I've been playing it way too much recently, much to the vexation of the Editor [you'll keep Florido - Ed] -- and I have no trouble in giving it a double thumbs up.
Conclusion: In the graphics and audio departments, Black Arrow is of the same quality as RS3, with beautifully modelled guns and nicely detailed environments - and of course the absolutely fantastic Dolby Digital 5.1 sound which improves the experience immensely.
Pros: Ten brand-new new missions., It’s only £20., Really good AI., It's more Rainbow.
Cons: Unfortunately the excellent AI has occasional hiccups., Some aiming/collision detection issues.
Summary: Global terror rears its ugly head once again and Ubisoft sends Team Rainbow into the thick of it in Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow on the Xbox. Protected by a Flak Jacket, TVG goes in for the kill…
Conclusion: 15 /20 Si AC2 et AC Brotherhood avaient réussi à apporter suffisamment de nouveautés par rapport à l’opus qui les précédait, la transition vers Assassin's Creed : Revelations est bien moins marquée, comme si les développeurs commençaient à être en panne d’imagination.
Pros: Ezio, classe malgré l’âge, Plusieurs objectifs secondaires, Univers vivant très travaillé, Constantinople, magnifique, Des nouveautés appréciables, Direction artistique superbe, Bande-son de qualité, Gameplay toujours efficace, Déplacements plus fluides, Vision de l’aigle améliorée, Mi...
Cons: Mais on espérait bien plus, Parfois un manque d’inspiration, Intégration d’Altaïr anecdotique, Fin assez décevante, Vraiment très facile, I.A. mal calibrée, Persos secondaires sous exploités, Quelques soucis visuels et techniques, Uplay Passport (Pass Online)
