Let’s skip the bad Vegas puns and get down to the sober truth: Rainbow Six Vegas 2 looks and plays like a rehash of last year’s original. Put both action shooters side by side and you’d be hard-pressed to distinguish between them. This...

Ultimately, Vegas 2 is more style over substance. The Rainbow Six series abandoned complex tactical planning stages and multiple squads long ago, but Vegas 2s problem is that its worse than the original. In that game, the combination of being able...

In case you missed all the hullabaloo surrounding Rainbow Six Vegas, the general consensus was that it was a fun game that (largely successfully) minimized the tactical nature of previous Rainbow Six games, and upped the action immensely. A lot of...

The first Rainbow Six game was released for PCs back in 1998 and soon found itself ported to all the various consoles of the day. Conversely, the release of the latest title in the Tom Clancy-based tactical shooter series seems to have been...

These days the name Tom Clancy is just as synonymous with a certain type of video game as it is with a certain type of novel. And, by and large, in both cases you can be fairly sure of what you’re getting before you’ve read a single page or...

Rainbow Six Vegas 2 is one tricky customer. On the one hand it doesnt feel like a full-fledged sequel (and is actually a step down from Rainbow Six Vegas in certain aspects) but on the other hand it packs in tons of content to make sure youll be...

Rainbow Six Vegas 2 offers a new ranking and points system to its predecessor. It also improves what was offered before on the first series. I found that Rainbow Six Vegas 2 single player campaign was quite short (probably as short as Call of Duty...

When Tom Clancys Rainbow Six: Vegas appeared a little over a year ago, it revolutionised the tactical shooter genre with its mix of first and third-person covert-ops action. However, while this sequel is every bit as enjoyable, its rather too...

Make sure your roulette isnt Russian. More like a small profit on the slots than the gaming jackpot. Ubisoft have done so well out of their Tom Clancy-themed games that a few weeks ago they bought out the exclusive videogame rights to the writers...

del.icio.us | Digg This | Glink It Its such a hard thing to really make a sequel that is every bit as fun as its predecessor yet features new and exciting gameplay. Some game franchises pull this off really well; The Metal Gear series comes to...

In the past, PC players have received rather mixed results when it comes to console ports of popular Clancy games, but Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 does a good job of replicating the console experience almost identically. So spot-on is the resemblance that...

Tom Clancys Rainbow Six Vegas 2 is already out on the Xbox 360 and PS3, and just a couple of short weeks later, Ubisoft is now shipping the PC version. Running on Unreal Engine 3, this is yet another installment in the long-running tactical shooter...

They were once titles to be reckoned with. Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six were notoriously difficult games. They were designed to give hardcores their fix for the week and give game reviewers nightmares. "I just want to finish this game, write my review...

Take cover: Rescuing hostages is part of the job, but be sure to look for cover or you wont last long out in the open. AFTER a successful first outing with , Ubisoft felt it was only right to tie up loose ends left at the end of the first game with...

Sometimes, a very good game can seem like a disappointment simply because it's a less glitzy, half-step sequel to a great game. Rainbow Six Vegas 2 leaves new boy, Bishop (your playable character) in a bit of a bind. As this game is part prequel,...

International Review By Komputer for Alle on 80

Det er 10 år siden, at det første spil i Rainbow Six-serien udkom, og det er ikke underligt, at serien har kørt så længe, for spillene er som regel rigtig gode. Rainbow Six Vegas 2 er ingen undtagelse.En gruppe slemme...

International Review By Tweak.dk on 26

Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 følger meget tæt i forgængerens fodspor, og ligesom det foregående spil er der ikke sparet på de grafiske effekter og diverse drejninger i historien, der konstant fastholder dig på kanten af sædet....

Technic3D meint:“Die Rainbow Six Serie ist weiterhin etwas für Fans, doch auch die werden sich bald fragen müssen, warum denn jedes Jahr ein neuer Teil erscheinen muss! Mehr als Durchschnitt ist das Rainbow-Imperium aktuell nicht mehr!" Offizieller...

International Review By Gamereactor on 70

Ubisoft har fattat galoppen, lärt av EA och pumpar nu ut ett Ghost Recon, Ett Rainbow Six, ett Prince of Persia och ett Splinter Cell - per år (nästan i alla fall). Något som herr Hegevall inte alls har något emot eftersom kvaliteten alltid är...
