Sorry Dog, ended up buying RB6 Lockdown instead. That was the biggest mistake I've made in a while. It's really a surprise to me that this game is so bad though, since I really liked the first Rainbow Six 3 on the xbox. I thought it had a very nice balance of straight up console action, and classic Rainbow Six tactics. This one they really dumbed down for whatever reason, younger target market, it fell behind schedule and couldn't include everything Redstorm wanted, whatever. This game is just bad, they totally reduced the number of guns, they removed some of my favorites like the Enfield, and the FAMAS. There's not even a HK MP5SD, which is the signature weapon of the series. The storyline sucks, they went for a very cheesy nineties action movie feel with some lame rock music and all that which again is very not RB6.
I thought multiplayer would redeem this mess, but it's even worse the campaign missions. Hand grenades especially the white phosphorus and mines are very overpowered and unbalanced. The persistent character mode that sounded very cool, rpg elements in a shooter, makes the unbalanced weapons even worse. You have level 40 players preying on level 1 newbies with their grenades since they can afford them, and new players don't have the cash yet. The maps from what I've seen are also not as good as the classics, plus the visuals with the exception of cut scenes look like a step back to me.
Anyway, sorry about the long rant but this game is very bad and it annoyed me very much. I really should have taken Bangy's advice and visited blockbuster before putting any real money down. There is a bright side of having bought this crap however. This RB6 version angered me so much that I went on ebay and got Rogue Spear and the expansion for the PC for the price of shipping. I had never tried Rogue Spear since a PC to run it on was out of the budget at the time it was new.
I’ll let you know if I do end up getting the starwars thing, but right now it looks like I’ll be mostly playing PC games if I have anytime at all to fool around with this stuff since I finally got my new graphics card working right.
