Having played/own the full "Medal of Honor", "Halo", and "Call of Duty" series, plus the original "Rainbow Six: Vegas" I had to try out the new RSV2, it did not disappoint. It is set in a modern, "real world" setting; a great break from WWII battlefields.
I was able to create my own character (the option of creating a female character was great!). The game's controls are well laid out, and you can adjust the sensitivity of your controller via the game's custom settings.
The game's surround sound is great...you can hear the bad guy's voices and literally follow the sounds to their locations...it's also handy for when you are being shot at, or having grenades tossed your way. The video quality is tops also. I have my Xbox 360 on HD settings and running into my projector, so if a game's graphics are shoddy, it really shows. Not w/ RSV2!!! You can see light glinting off reflections in the water. Great attention to detail!
Also worth mentioning is the ability to play the game in co-op mode. Your friends can join in and play along side you in story mode, as well as the "terrorist hunt" option. Of course you have the standard Vs. mayhem, as well as online play.
Game play: much like "MOH: Airborne", and "COD 4", the maps are open, allowing you to pick your route of assault. Of course there are some choke points that you have to fight your way thru, but many times you have an option of either taking the stairs, multiple entry points (doors), or rappelling in thru the windows...what ever style suits you best.
You are in command of two other guys, who do an excellent job of watching your six (backside). You can go in sneaky stealthy, or full on auto assault. Your teammates do an excellent job of breaching and clearing rooms. Plus they are pretty good at holding their own, so you can send them forward to see if any enemy pops up, thus becoming easy targets for you to snipe. Or, if you insist on being the lone wolf, you can have them follow you and just watch your six...but the AI is on point and these guys do help you; they are very good shots and have unlimited ammo. Plus, if you have a mic/headset, you an verbally order them vs. having to push buttons. This came in handy a couple of times when my hands were already full trying to doge shotguns and grenades. I was surprised to find myself wishing I had them in later missions where you have to go at it solo.
RSV2 has a pretty cool rewards program called ACES. At first I was a little skeptical, but it's won me over. There are three categories: Marksman, Close Quarters, and Assault. By performing certain actions, you "level up" each category. As you level up, you unlock new weapons and gain XP (experience points). As you build XP, you get promoted. As you get promoted, you get all sorts of cool new clothes, gear, guns, and gadgets.
As an Army officer who always said, "As a pilot, I'll never use infantry tactics, clear buildings, or do any of this FM 7-8 stuff," now I can put all of that Ft. Benning training to good use, playing video games.
I rented R6V2 when it first came out and fell in love with it so much that I bought it soon after. I traded my first copy in a one point - what a mistake. I recently bought the game again and have not regretted it in the least.
The co-op campaign and terrorist hunt modes are solid fun. On-line multiplayer is a blast. This game is a fun experience alone, with a friend, or with the XBOX Live community. The variety of weapons, armors, clothing, and colors combined with the option to paste your own face on your in-game character extremely customizable.
I recommend this game without reservation!
This game was very fun to play. Counter Strike used to be my favorite game, and this is very similar. I love how this game uses more tactics than other FPS games. You can hug walls, blind fire around corners, rapel down ropes, and do so many fun things. The artificial intelligence built into the computer players in this game is awesome. The game is dynamic so if you play it multiple times, the bad guys are in different locations with different guns. Online play is great as well. There's a huge following for this game, even though it's years past it's release date. I highly recommend this game to anyone that is into FPS games!
The gameplay elements aren’t too hugely different from last year’s game, but still hold up quite nicely, and the new moves are implemented well and important to the gameplay.
As an Unreal Engine 3 game, Vegas 2 doesn’t look too shabby. The environments are well-rendered and feature some amazing lighting effects, and the character models look very good.
Great voice acting, sharp effects, and a great score line this one out.
While the gameplay isn’t too terribly different from the original Vegas, the story elements wrap up the saga very well, making it a compelling mission to undertake.
The multiplayer elements include some new competitive modes, co-op and a leveling system that carries over to the single-player mode.
Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 doesn’t strive to reinvent the franchise, and works mostly as a means of finishing off the story that began in the first game. However, there are plenty of new features and game modes to keep series fans interested.
The game is amazing. The graphics are amazing as they should and the way the game is setup is great. You can fully customize your operative with armor, gear, camo, and weapons. A wide variety of weapons are always nice to choose from and you can always switch it up. Whether you fancy missions or terrorist hunts you can have either. All in all the game is great and i highly recommend it to anyone.
