I've always been a big fan of the Rainbow Six series. I even tried my best to like Lockdown. This game definately gets the series back in the right direction offering some very spiffy graphics (the casinos look great, and you can cause damage to almost anything). The character models of your team mates look highly detailed and animate nice and smooth. Unfortunately your enemies and the victims that you save from time to time don't share that high level of detail, but its not THAT noticeable. Sound is good, machine guns will rock your speakers assuming you have a decent surround sound set up. Music is there going from calm to tense depending on the situation, as most games are doing these days. Gameplay is......well if you've played any of the other rainbow six games you will feel right at home with this one. In addition they've added a take cover feature, similar to gears of war in some ways. It adds a little depth and realism to some of the many shoot outs you will have with terrorists. Overall I'm impressed, not blown away, but impressed none of the less.
