    Rainbow Six Vegas breathes new life into a series that had begun to go stale - this series has never been better.

    The Rainbow Six series has been among my favorites ever since I started gaming. The intense realism provided a challenge that I hadn't seem before in games. I loved the modern weaponry and realistic stories which made me... Read Full Review
