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...70

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...70

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...80

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...60
