Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six makes its next-generation hardware debut in the most dramatic instalment of the renowned first-person shooter franchise to date. Rainbow operatives take to the chaotic streets of Las Vegas as an escalating terrorist siege in Sin City threatens to take world terrorism to new, uncontrollable heights. The future of global security hangs in the balance as you battle to defend classic Vegas locations and environments like Fremont Street, the Strip, and casinos.

Experience Las Vegas like never before through revolutionary next-generation technology as you work against the clock to keep one of the world's most recognizable cities from utter devastation.

Key Features :
New leader, new team Team Rainbow ushers in a new breed of heroes. With a new team comes added responsibility. Tactics play a MAJOR role in your team's success, as each member comes equipped with his own skill set.

Special order location Experience a new level of squad-based realism as your team-mates, Michael and Jung, offer you real-time tactical suggestions like busting through walls or hacking computers, all in a race against time to locate the heart of the terrorist cell.

Observe plan assault Use tactical planning to manoeuvre through multiple-path Vegas environments, while utilizing high-tech equipment such as snake cams to strategically tag terrorist targets to your team-mates, prior to entering a room.

Real-time immersion Prepare yourself for a new level of in-game immersion with real-time mission briefings, all in the midst of the most intense combat ever played.

Advanced gameplay animations Motion-captured assault and recon techniques such as fast roping, rappelling, window entry, blind-cover fire, and more. All captured by an experienced Hollywood animation expert.

Next-generation artificial intelligence Next-generation technology brings a higher level of artificial intelligence to Rainbow Six. As you get past the grunts and advance closer to the centre of the terrorist cell, encounter deadlier, more skilled enemies who work together as a group to counter every move you make.

Customizable multi-player experience Create your own multiplayer character that evolves as you play online, unlocking new equipment and achievements as you go.

Ubisoft Montreal returns Rainbow Six is back in the hands of Ubisoft's Montreal studio, creators of the award-winning and highly acclaimed Rainbow Six 3.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but old fashioned game design 25 April 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Ok, well.... You control squad leader of a 3-man team and have to fight the terrorists as usual. The emphasis is on action and the shoot-outs are fun and explosive. You can give basic orders to you men, asking them to stack up on doors or move to cover, just by looking and tapping the space bar. From a door your team have different orders depending on their current 'Rules of Engagement', whether to go in guns blazing or quietly using smoke or distractions. Mention must be given to the use of rappelling and bursting into room via ropes; through windows, either fast down through skylights, or swinging in from the roof. The controls... Most of the time you spend will be using cover. A button press on the mouse allows you to place you back against a wall using the cover sensibly to fire blind or pop out and take a pop shot, before ducking behind cover. This is key to the game, and is a slick and intuitive system once you're used to it.

If I have gripes with the game it's that the design can seem forced. Although the AI is reasonable, (they do hear and try to flank you for example) and the levels do allow you to engage from different points and in different ways at times, there are obvious triggers which spark off events. As soon as you walk past certain points the baddies pop out of nowhere (literally) and you can be surprised and caught out, maybe die. Next time you know exactly when and where they will appear making it more a test of memory than sharp awareness and reactions. The game saves after passing set checkpoints and at one point there is a level and you can see a mile away its a clear trap. It seems really odd to have no other tactic open to you apart from walking into this trap and watching as the bad guys pop out in the same manner over and over again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another botched port 7 Aug 2007
By L. Lee
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Its often the case when a console game is ported to the PC, the people responsible for carying out that task make a hash of it. Resident Evil 4 is exemplary in that regard. While Rainbow Six Vegas isn't quite as bad, it is nevertheless very poorly optimised for the PC.

My specs are: Core Duo @ 2Ghz, 2GB of RAM and a Mobility Radeon X1600. Yes, I can hear you cry 'he's running on a notebook!' but let me say that I can play Counter-Strike Source at 1680x1050 averaging 70-90fps, Oblivion averages 30 fps (anything above 25fps in that game is smooth) and FEAR plays fantastic at mostly max settings on 1280x768 (only just got it so I've yet to benchmark). This game however is a shuddering mess even when most of the effects are turned off. No motion blur, no HDR, no AF, playing at 1280x768 and the game runs far from smoothly. I was expecting at least a decent level of performance on low settings but I can't even get that. Therefore, I'd only recommend this game if you have at least a desktop 7600GT or notebook 7800go to run at 'OK' settings or a desktop 7800 and 7900go on notebook for any kind of eye candy. I wish I could comment on the gameplay aspects but the abysmal performance prevents me from doing so.

The bottom line is only buy if you have high end specs - most mainstream GPUs won't suffice.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware 16 Dec 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Well I purchased this game yesterday and the first thing I found out is that if you own any Radeon AGP graphics card the game wont run. The reason is that Radeon never included shader modal 3.0 on there AGP cards. This includes the Awesome X850XT platimun. The newer pci express cards however will run the game. Anyone with an Nvidia graphics card from 6600 up will also be able to run the game as Nvidia did include shader modal 3.0. So my next step was to go out and purchase an Nvidia 6800xfx 256mb AGP card so I could run the game. This will not be an option for everyone which is why I mention it so that you can watch out and not get caught out. Also the game doesnt support core duo technology but it will at least still run depite this. So to sumerise make sure your card supports shader model 3.0 before you buy the game.

So on to the gameplay. I have a 2.8ghz cpu, 2gb of memory and a Nvidia 6800xfx graphics card. With this machine I can only run the game on 800x600 resolution. However this hasnt taken away from the game because the graphics are amazing and at this rate it moves well. If you try to go higher with a spec similar to mine you will not be able to play the game with the slowdown. The game features some cool moves like the ability to take cover with a simple right click of the mouse and then use the qwe keys to look left right or over the objest you are hiding behind. this allows for burst fire without getting nailed all the time. You can also use suppression fire from cover without actually looking out from cover at all. This is very inacurate but works well to pin enemies while your squad moves around. Once the enemy is covering you can then try to flank them while your squad keeps the enemy pinned.

4.0 out of 5 stars Machine hungry but Very good 30 Dec 2006
By Lee
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is by far the best team strategy/war em up game i've played on the PC for ages. You do need a very powerful PC indeed but the game play is fantastic and easy to get to grips with, there are untold weapons, great actions from absailing to blowing open doors, the AI is very good shoot a man in the head he's dead with one bullett get him in the body your lookig at 3, enemy soldiers will ambush you and got to very inteligent and hard to get at places thats where your sniper scope comes in handy, the graphics are spot on even though ive lowered them somewhat for the game to play smooth on my PC but look to the future a faster processor and garphics card upgrade in a couple of months time this game will play awsomely,this game is also best played on a PC because you have the freedom of mouse movement I have played the xbox 360 version and that freedom aint there hence I got shot lots!

Ive given the game 4 stars because of the powerful PC needed to play it and the fact that you can only save at checkpoints, this is very annoying and hopefully will be addressed with a patch!!

If you have a powerful enough PC buy it you won't be disapointed
