Overall Ratings

Graphics: ★★★★
Storyline: ★★☆☆☆
Audio/Voice Acting: ★★★★
Mechanics/Controls: ★★★★★


Rainbow Six is a unique multiplayer video game that includes strategic aspects to gaming. The graphics are impressive and add the immersion. In addition, the controls and mechanics of the game are superb. I especially enjoy using the grappling hook to gain an advantage over the enemy. The weapon models are fairly accurate along with other realistic combat qualities showcased throughout the game.

Some cons of this work include the lack of a strong storyline and concrete single player mode. While there is a mode called “situations,” which allows you to play solo, there is little to no storyline to accompany that option. The same lack of plot can be found in the multiplayer area, but not as drastic.

Rainbow Six is a great game for players who are interested in playing with close friends and using strategy to accomplish the objective.
