Running on the engine of Rogue Spear, Covert Ops has the same overall game structure--you examine the intelligence, and proceed to plan and execute your mission. The Bolivian jungle level is graphically impressive and has all the atmosphere of the original titles, but gaming wise it adds nothing new. The training side of things is highly captivating and there is an abundance of material to absorb. The more you learn, the better prepared you are to tackle the challenges on the gaming side. Perhaps this would have been useful as a teaser for Rogue Spear rather than a follow-up, but at any length, the information resource will captivate fans of the Rainbow Six experience.
The graphics and gameplay are still as gripping as the predecessors, with the same attention to detail. And therein lies the beauty, and perhaps the problem. Gamers familiar with the R6 universe can instantly jump into familiar surroundings, but there is little new material to satisfy their thirst for action. For special forces enthusiasts, the wealth of information will be well received, but leave the hard-core gamers wanting more. Rainbow Six: Covert Operation Essentials gives a reminiscent spattering of new levels, but does not truly satisfy the want of more gaming action. --Chris Hall

The education part of the game is okay. If you are not very good at these kinds of games then it can come in handy, if not you can enjoy the videos of people talking about experiences.
Overall Covet Ops is not a bad game. The fact that its so short and quite expensive makes it a hard choice seeing as there are games like Rogue Spear or Black Thorn to choose from. If you have the money and just love to play Tom Clancy's games, then buy it. If not, your not missing out.
Potential buyers might be better off waiting for this game to hit the bargain bin at their local PC World, which I feel it will do real quick.
