Conclusion: With perhaps the exception of its artistic design, The Saboteur doesn’t do anything new. It takes all of its design elements from innovative games, like those in the Grand Theft Auto and Assassin’s Creed series, but implements them in a much less flattering manner. However, that’s not to say the game isn’t fun.
Pros: A massive and great looking world with a unique style
Conclusion: The game is a very nice package for gamers that are into tactical squad FPS. Due to the campaign's length and quality the meat of the game is in its online multiplayer; which might attract some gamers, but keep away others.
Summary: Parents need to know that this is an intensely violent tactical shooter. While you play the role of a counterterrorism operative who rescues hostages and thwarts a terror threat, it's done in a violent fashion. There's a reward system related to how terrorists are killed where you earn bonuses for executing a headshot or killing a terrorist through cover. Players use the standard assortment of firearms and grenades to do this.
Excerpt: In producing Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Ubisoft Montreal had perhaps the easiest job in the history of videogame development. Their previous game, Rainbow Six Vegas , was the best first person shooter ever made, artfully blending traditional realistic first-person shooter (FPS) design with a kill.switch -inspired cover system, seamless team controls, and fantastic multiplayer. It raised the bar so high that all subsequent FPS titles have looked pathetic in comparison.
Excerpt: Launching off the popularity of the first Vegas title, Ubisoft tosses the player right back into Sin City for Tom Clancy�s Rainbow Six Vegas 2. While the campaign picks up at the tail end of the events from the first title, the timeline for Vegas 2 follows events that occurred before and after the first title. Rather than continuing the story of the protagonist from Vegas (Logan Keller), Ubisoft opted for a customized experience instead.
Summary: Rainbow Six Vegas 2 is more of the same, but does it a bit better and has a few new, and interesting, additions that elevate it above its predecessor. If you're strictly offline and won't be doing split-screen or System Link play, you'll have to judge whether the A.C.E.S. system and advancing the plot of the overall Tom Clancy universe is worth the $60 - because otherwise it's the same game you've played already.
Excerpt: What happens in Vegas, in this case, does indeed stay in Vegas. Why, I thought to myself which I tend to do a lot. Why do we need another Vegas? In a nutshell, I had played the online version so much that, to tell the truth and I only lie to my friends and I don’t like you people that much, I had forgotten what in the hell the story line for the original was.
Pros: Good storyline length, online play, custom ability of character, weapons accuracy in storyline and online
Cons: Whiny characters, still get stuck on unrealistic things, online games too short (at the moment)
Summary: Ubisoft and Tom Clancy raise the stakes for the Rainbow Six series.
Pros: Intense tactical shooter gameplay refined to a razor sharp edge; lots of weapons and armour to make your character yours; excellent graphics and audio; RPG-like progression system adds depth; excellent multiplayer for every mode., Simple controls; good multiplayer; ACES system is fun to use; sharp graphics.
Cons: Some sections are overly difficult; long installation; disposable storyline; short., Spotty enemy AI; pointless single-player mode; whack-a-mole gameplay; poorly-placed checkpoints.
