Summary: Not the greatest shooter ever made, and showing it's age now, but still an enjoyable way to spend time. And co-op gaming never gets old, although later games for the Xbox 360 allowed more co-operative progression.
Summary: Well, I don't have Xbox live for a start so I can't say how good the online play is for this game, but I've played through a lot of the campaign and must say it is quite fun. There is a good selection of weapons to choose from, the maps are interesting and for once the controls are fluid and accurate, and thankfully easy to use. The graphics are good but not overly impressive.
Summary: The PC version has all the greatness of the old Rainbow 6s. Like mission plan and acturally allowing you to change from one character to the other. The console versions are just similer levels of a set path. Vegas 1 and 2, I hate you too!!!
Summary: After playing many FPS games that had a "Blow up everything in your way" gameplay it was nice to get my hands on a little more of a tactical game. Rainbow Six 3 breaks away from mindless shooting and adds alot more thought to the FPS genre. The game puts you in control of a squad of 3 men who act as covering fire aswell as other back up and support. This adds to the games diversity and you feel a real sense of leadership as you command your troops.
Summary: From everything I've read I thought this was a stealth game. The film at the beginning (which is one of the things that got the game its 2 stars) also suggested this. After playing the game its clear that this is not in fact the case. Running around shooting things is more a FPS thing, why your team members do everything so carefully (checking round corners etc.) I don't know, its a lot easier to just throw yourself round the corner and blast the enemy to pieces.
Summary: I fairly new to xbox and this was one of the first games I bought due to reviews, and high opinions of the game. I glad to say I think the game is great. Very realistic locations, detalied graphics and weapons and lots of fun to be had. You have 14 missions basically to shoot terrorists and defuse bombs rescue hostages. Some missions are great especailly like the Villa, Penthouse and The Rock rip off of Alcatraz sneaking into the shower area just like the film!
