After playing the demo at length, something came to mind - Is this a real Rainbow Six game?

It is absolutely AMAZING and I've played the demo thru a good few times now, but it's not Rainbow Six. A big part of Rainbow Six (the games and the book) was the planning. By giving one four man hit squad, it removes that element. It makes for a superb game but as I mentioned, it is not Rainbow Six.

Unfortunately this means that whilst it's a superb product, it opens itself to flak from the hardcore R6 and GR fans who prefer the one hit kill accuracy of the previous Tom Clancy games.

What do you reckon?

I feal the same at the moment, the planning and teams were a big part of my love of the PC games and I really hope atleast Live play has 1 hit kills.

"streamlined for the console" my most hated phrase.

Don't get me wrong, I think the improvements are all good, but I don't think it can really be classed as part of the R6 franchise

i have to agree completely

this is an incredible game dont get me wrong...but why completely change it from Raven...it cant be to appeal to a broader audience...cause GR is the number 1 live game..and it didnt change much

i love this game, and am really anticipating its release...but i hope in the future they add the planning back in, and make the game sort of a port from the pc game that is so great

i don't really care....believe it or not, ive never played rainbow six before other than playing it for maybe 5 minutes at a friends house.... because my pc isn't gaming material.... so anything similar is fine with me

lol! ye, I have the SP pc demo for RvS but it runs at like 4fps on my laptop.... only played it a bit.

Although I know it adds nothing to the actual quality of the game I like it being a Clancy title. Just maybe a new team.
