Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 Limited Edition Preview

Platforms: Playstation 3, Xbox 360

Publisher: Ubisoft

Developer: Ubisoft Montreal

Release Date: March 18, 2008

The original Rainbow Six: Vegas wasn’t really anticipated as much as it should have been. However, about a year after the release of the original, comes Rainbow Six: Vegas 2, which IS being highly looked forward to, by stealth and shooter fans across both platforms. The limited edition is really something to look forward to, as it comes with a strategy video, highlights from ’07 MLG Pro Circuit, a collectible poker chip keychain, and a limited edition bonus disc. Plus, it comes in the really sexy looking case shown at the top of this page. Now THAT is what bonus content should be.

The sequel of Vegas shows what happens in Sin City, while Logan and his crew are still in Mexico. The story is expected to be just as good as the first, but it is a little disappointing that it doesn’t continue after the cliffhanger of Vegas I. Perhaps Vegas III?

Of course, Vegas is a first/third person tactical shooter. The squad mechanics have remained untouched, but squad AI has been upped, as well as enemy AI, making the experience even more engaging. Also, the foggy look of the first has been stripped, leaving nothing but crisp and clean visuals, really worthy of being called next gen. The levels are more expansive, and less linear, really letting you enjoy your time in Vegas while it lasts.

Basically, little has been changed from the first game. Everything has just been made better, instead of it being replaced by something better. It’s an evolutionary step, and that’s what fans of the series have wanted.

Vegas 2 should be in stores march 18, available as a Limited Edition as well.

  1. The problem i have with this game from what i’ve seen is that the gun shooting and overall look of the 1st person view seem to detract. i think that this occured because they tried to put 3rd person (which looks amazing and is relevant) with the 1st and make them both incredible. unfortunately for Ubisoft it is ridiculous to expect the look of CoD 4 with 3rd person. it is because of this, however that i am not going to put down the game, in fact i strongly support the idea of blending the ‘over the shoulder’ look with the ‘HUD’. i agree with the article and recomend purchasing the game when it comes out.
