Editor's Note:

Also known as "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Raven Shield".

Added on: June 03, 2003


[edit] Background

It is a brutal kind of warfare, which strikes with ferocious singular purpose and with little or no warning. The entire world is its battleground, leaving no civilian safe. As terrorism threatens to unhinge the free world, leaders scramble to assemble an effective response force – Team RAINBOW – an elite, multinational force of counter-terrorist operatives that are as secret and deadly as the terrorists themselves.

[edit] Gameplay

As the United States is caught in an embargo-induced oil crisis, terrorist attacks against American interests - and citizens - escalate. Venezuela, which still supplies the United States with oil, also becomes a target. As unrest grows in America, protests rock the streets of Caracas. And while the shadow of terror looms, madmen plot even greater acts of murder and destruction. No place is safe, no border secure in this hour of fear.

Only one thing stands between the world and the threats that now face it: RAINBOW, an international task force dedicated to combating terrorism in all its forms. A top-secret organization consisting of the best field operatives the United Nations has to offer, RAINBOW is the most potent weapon in the world's arsenal. Backed by the most sophisticated technology available and trained to the limits of human capability, they are our best hope in the war against terror.
