Rainbow Six

Get the game at!

Reviewed by Danielle L. Based on the novel by Tom Clancy, Rainbow Six is the story of a group of soldiers who make it their personal duty to always save the day (kind of like super heroes in camouflage). They go through rotten old houses, secret military bases, and government buildings with typically only one objective: get the hostages out safely.

Graphics: 7 out of 10

Meh, the graphics aren't really anything to rave about, but they don't stink. This is from a first-person POV, so you don't really see characters very well except for enemies and allies. The character graphics are OK, nothing special. The environments are done pretty well, though. The polygons only show a little bit, not too much to care about. The graphics are pretty average.

Music and Sound: 8 out of 10

Again, nothing to rave about. The music does do a pretty good job of setting the mood. You can feel the tension through the music, but there isn't that much music that will stick in your head and be memorable. The sound effects are mediocre, I personally would have preferred more voice clips, but the gunshot and impact effects are ok.

Game Challenge: 4 out of 10

This game is freaking easy! The only difficult thing was figuring out where to go. Usually, the hostages were in plain sight, but you just forgot to check a little alcove or something where they were. I also hated how the objectives for missions were always basically the same: rescue hostages. This is now Goldeneye. This game gets very dull, very fast, and is just way too easy.

Game Play-Fun: 5 out of 10

I only liked playing it in 2 player mode so I could team up. This game just gets way too boring after you find out that the only thing you ever do is rescue hostages who are usually in plain sight. It just isn't enough to keep you wanting more.


Doing the same thing over and over again can get very frustrating. Also accidentally killing my allies is irritating. They should have an option where you can turn friendly fire off.

Replayability: 3 out of 10

What point is there to go back and play it again? There's nothing to collect, no (at least I don't think so) cheats to earn by doing things faster, and two-player isn't even all that good. This is one game that's better off renting than buying, you'll just be disappointed a week after you buy it.

Game Value: 3 out of 10

Its worth it to rent it, but I highly suggest not buying it. You'll finish it in like a week, and then you will probably never play it again. I don't know how much it costs.. probably $40 or so, but its not worth it.

Overall: 5 out of 10

This can be a very entertaining game if you rent it for the weekend and play with a friend. If you decide to buy it, you may be very disappointed. Its just a little too average to be worth it, and a little too dull to be fun for more than a couple of days. So, if you like shooting games, rent it and try it out, but don't waste your money buying it only to be entertained for a week.
