4.0 out of 5 stars Most Realistic Shooter, 27 Mar 2007
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas (PS3) (Video Game)
This game has been labelled boring, slow and all sorts. But if you prefer counter strike, Unreal Tournament better look away now. This is a simulation game not an arcade shooter. Like all Rainbow six games you are thrown in the action as if it was real life situation. You cant just run in guns blazing. You have to strategically plan your missions and pick your weapons depending on what the mission requires. You have to survey your area as you would do in real life. Theres nothing slow about this game. When you get involved in a gun battle with a lot of enemies it gets very quick.

Normally you would use stun grenades, frag grenades etc to eliminate possible campers (online) and hidden enemies. This game requires intelligence because the a.i are smarter than before.

As for the amount of shots before you die. Well Rainbow Six has always been realistic and this should be no different. A sniper can kill you instantly and 2 bullets from a normal gun would normally finish you which is why players normally use armor. But this game might be slightly different to give players more of a chance as there are usually no health packs!. It should be a good game overall. This is a realistic game and the online is always great in Rainbow games. In real life you cant expect to get shot at many times and survive. Rainbow games are no different. In previous games players would have made best use of their cover, take their time, peak round corners. Now the game is slightly different allowing players to revert to 3rd person from first person mode. Their will be more weapons available and authentic sounds and damagable objects.

Some people i know have criticized this game in the past. Yes it struggles on PC but this is console. There will be no technical issues with peformance.
