Rainbow Six : Vegas 2
The sequel is a great game, but it still doesn't match the first Vegas.
Don't get me wrong, this game is truly great and is definitely something I would recommend to people who like shooters, but compared to the first game, it just doesn't match up. There are several new additions that I really like, there are some I don't like, and there are some flaws that haven't been fixed that disappoint me. Additions I really like: 1) the new weapons. You can't go wrong with the M468, the FNC, the Tactical 500, and the Arctic Warfare. I use these weapons frequently and they are all spectacular. 2) ACES. I really like that you get points for doing certain things. The points system usually works pretty well and the EXP awards and weapons are well distributed between CQB, Marksman, and Assault. 3) The new maps. Some of the new maps are a bit hit and miss, but I love Villa, and Murdertown. These maps are great. 4) Improved AI. No matter what anyone else says, the AI can really beat you up, especially on Realistic. The snipers and terrorists with shields are really hard to get. Your teammates in story mode are much better now, but once every blue moon, one will stand out in the open and get shot down, but otherwise, I'm really impressed by the AI this time around. 5) The improved graphics. I was really shocked when IGN said that the graphics were hit and miss. I usually play it on a 20 inch TV and it is still beautiful. I'm not really sure where IGN got that from. I played it on the 42 inch downstairs on 1080i, and it was breath-taking. Other things that I like, but can't really be classified as additions: 1) Bringing back Streets and Kill House. These two maps were two of the best maps in the first game and I like that they added a 3rd floor on the right and left buildings in Streets. There are also some small improvements on Kill House, too. 2) Being able to finish off the story co-op or solo or switching between both. In the first game co-op story and solo story was 2 different entities, although the storyline was the same. So, if you were to do bits and pieces of the story in co-op and the rest and in solo, you wouldn't get the achievement of beating the story. That is no more. Additions that I dislike: 1) ACES. I do really like the points system, but I think that it needs to be tweaked a bit. Marksman and CQB are very easy to gain points in, but Assault is slightly more difficult to gain points in, especially if you play games without explosives. Otherwise, ACES is pretty solid. 2) The "Spawn Shield". If you are playing with respawns, you will have something called a "spawn shield" for about 3-5 seconds when you respawn, so that you won't be instantly killed by enemies that sit in your base. I find that the 3-5 seconds is an insufficient amount of time, because will wait and hide in corners for several seconds and then take you down. I think that they need to make it at least 8-10 seconds or make it possible to spawn outside of your spawn and away from danger. 3) Dying quicker. In this game, you die much quicker than in the first game. This takes a while to get used to, but after a while, it's no problem. 4) The ending. The ending is really good, but it ends a bit abruptly. I expected that the last scene would be a bit harder, but it was still pretty good. Flaws and Glitches that I have found in the first game and should have been fixed: 1) Sniper Rifles. For some reason, sniper rifles can be really hit or miss. I use the Arctic Warfare a lot and I notice that it can sometimes be up to 3 feet off target (same with any other sniper rifle from R6V and this game). Being that it is the best sniper rifle in the game, at most, it should be maybe 2 inches off. Also, in games that have even the slightest lag, sniper rifles may take 2 or 3 shots to the head to kill an enemy. This is unacceptable. No matter how far away the enemy is, a sniper round in the upper torso should instantly kill someone in this game. Not 2 or 3, because by then, the enemy should have killed you. Lastly, I found glitch whe
Best shooter game ever!
The game in my opinion is the best shooter game ever and it is one of the most popular games online. It is the best game to buy if you don't have it. It cost approximately $7 at game stop right now and you will get a lot of play time out of it. It may be sad that some games you might buy for over $50 or $60 is no where close to this very affordable game.
The best F.P.S of it's time.
When I picked up this game, I thought the graphics were going to be choppy, and the gameplay out dated. I was so wrong! I'm a huge fan of all Tom Clancy video games, and this one is not a let down. The graphics are good, the scopes for weapons are great, and the lasting appeal is the best. After you pass the game you can go in with a squad or alone and just kill hostiles. You can also play online co-op or online versus. No review is complete without a down side though. I have to say though that the recoil on some guns is unrealistic. If you don't have this game already go buy it..... NOW!!!
Spectacular Spec OPS
The ultimate special operative game. Is a much more tactical game play than Call of Duty. Nice graphics and sound.
One of the best games i have played. pretty old but still better than 75% of the games out today. One of the very few games i can sit and play for hours.
good shooter game for less
this game is really good for the price for a modern shooter rather than the expensive but really good battlefield 3 . this game is really cool . the game is really hard even on causal ! but has a solid gameplay and sound effects . but do not get if your easy tempered , cause you might throw your xbox out the window ... lol ... but a solid game .
can't wait for rainbow six patriots :)

A great addition to the series
I love this game almost as much as I love the first one. It has great gameplay, a great story, and graphics are kind of improved. Don't forget to get the new rainbow six coming out soon.
Still my favorite game of all time!
I have a lot of games, But I always end up playing this because it is more fun in the end. There are more gaming options online on RB6V2! than most new games I bought it when the price was much higher. The campain mode is a long one and is able to be played online by a friend (co-op) Many sleepless nights playing this game online! Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys 3rd person shooters - The only thing I don't like which is not a problem is dull looking graphics in the game / but the gameplay is amazing I love the ability to (RANK UP) highest is Elite 100 - A full arsenal of weapons & upgrades for each gun - DLC for free Levels online! This is an awesome game ! Once again amazing online play you will never get bored with this game. I'm playing the game after this .....
