Once Again, Tom Clancy

The good:

Excellent Graphics

Very Enjoyable Story Mode (Also Terrorist Hunt)

Best Weapon Game I've Ever Played

The bad:

As all great online games will have, annoying gamers, but they are avoidable.

Online Lag (Can get very annoying at times)


Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas, in all honesty, has been the best action game I have ever played, beforehand Gears Of War, but Vegas takes it head and shoulders above the rest. It has an excellent story mode which lasts hours with different difficulties to choose from. Personally, I could do the whole story mode once again. The online mode, is unbelievably good, as most games, the online really makes it that bit better. Rainbow Six is very enjoyable online:

Online Mode, as you would read what I have written above, is very enjoyable with a lot of game modes to choose from. Ranked Matches are very competitive I must say though, so if you have only bought the game, and would like to practice before you start challenging the very best, you can also play Player Matches, which are mainly for fun or practice. There are also many ranks online which list, lowest at the top, highest at the bottom:

  • Private Second Class
  • Private First Class
  • Specialist
  • Corporal
  • Sergeant
  • Staff Sergeant
  • Sergeant First Class
  • Master Sergeant
  • First Sergeant
  • Sergeant Major
  • Second Lieutenant
  • First Lieutenant
  • Captain
  • Major
  • Lt. Colonel
  • Colonel
  • Elite

    As you can see, there are a lot of ranks on this game, which makes the game last longer, unlike some games where if you complete, gets very boring after a while. Even if you do reach the rank of Elite, the game is still immensely enjoyable, there are still many online and offline achievements to be unlocked. Also, a lot of rank match types, my favourite being Attack And Defend, a lot of people play it and it's very exciting. Obviously, I can't persuade you to go out and buy this game, but if you're into action shooters, then this is the best one out there on the Xbox 360 right at this point. You'll also meet a lot of nice people along the way. Trust me, Rainbow six, IS the game you want.

    Another feature to the online mode, is Co-op Story, which is quite like the Single Player story mode, except each mission, is shortened a bit, and that is where you can meet a lot of cool people along your way and there are achievements for the game. Thing is though, I wouldn't plan completing it within 1 hour, it is still very long, you can put it on Normal difficulty or Realistic difficulty for the real challenge.

    Thanks for reading guys!
