Not bad, but alot worse than a 9.5 for the first one. I was expecting too much I guess.



I will still buy it, I just need to get money. 50/50 chance I can get it tommorow.



The thing I don't get is how the graphics are "worst" than the first one, that made me mad.

Reading the boards today and most comments have been negative toward the game.

From Game is not worth 60 dollars and is not a true sequels, Feels more like a expansion pack.

Re: Official Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Discussion



Just got home about an hour ago and played a little bit. I only finsihed the first level but here are my impressions so far...



- Controls are more refined. They changed some of the controls for the better. They felt alot more fluid to me.



- Graphics are what you'd kinda expect. I thought they looked better but don't expect COD or Gears quality.



- It's a little to early to say the story is better, but already I'm enjoying it more. The mission I just got to in Vegas is taking place while Logan has a mission in Mexico which was the first mission of the previous game. You can tell they worked on it.



- Most importantly though, my favorite new feature..... A Casual Difficulty.



I'm not afraid to say I thought the first game was really tough, some parts borderline impossible for me, but the added difficulty made it so much more enjoyable. Glad they added it.



I'm only a little bit in, but I like it so far. Haven't tryed the multiplayer yet. I usualy wait til I finish the story, but I'll probably try and get on tonight. From my early impressions, I'd recommend it to anyone that liked the first game.

Re: Official Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Discussion



uhm, i havent really experienced its full capacity yet. what i mean is i havnt unlocked anything yet, but its kinda cool when you do stuff ingame cod point like stuff pops up on the right and you see your xp go up at the bottom.. Its pretty cool and it doesn't really distract you much.. i have a bit to go before i unlock anything though.



one cool think i forgot to mention was if you have a R6V save on you 360 you start with bonus XP and a few unlockables. nothing major but it gives you a nice little set to start with.

Re: Official Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Discussion



MiniReview or MiniPoints. All Based on the 360 Build.



- I'm on the PentHouse Level. So far my favor Level.

- Ai is impressive at some points, and Dumb in other points. They will try out flank you, Other times they will stand in the middle of the room and look at you.

- Game can become very laggy. Was Playing Co-Op with Chief Ediri. Some of the objects and Textures took awhile to pop-in. Dunno if this was due to the game, or the connection.

- Couldn't hear anything Chief Ediri was saying. I saw the Mic Icon couldn't hear the voice. This could just because I didn't have a Mic. I though if you don't have a Mic it should go to your speakers on your TV Set.

- SinglePlayer is allot of fun. Had more fun with Vega 2 than I did with Vegas 1. Wish their was more casinos and hotels.

- ACES system is very well done, you can earn XP in both Online and During the SinglePlayer.

- Cover system is still the best in the business with Uncharted's Cover System coming in a close 2nd.

- Nice how they tied Vega 1 and Vegas 2 storyline together. When your taking down some Bad Guys down Logan's team is also in Vegas doing the same. Also some Splinter Cell References in the game.

I beg to differ a bit with Revan... Rainbowb Six 1 single play is way better to me. Aces is way cool as wellb though. Revan why don't you have a mic? The bodies disappearing is the major detraction. I still have part 1 and know for fact that the slain enemies stay for the most part.

Never really cared to buy one after my first 2nd one broke(not the MS one). Plus I really don't need hear people screaming at me or try curse at me because they think it's cool thing to do.

That was the same for me. I'd go back every once in awhile and then stop and realize why I stopped playing it.



I am having so much more fun with this one. I think when I am done, I might go back to the original to refresh myself on some of it, but I feel this one is so much more fine tuned.



The bodies on the ground isn't even something I am thinking about. I guess if I was looking for it, it might bug me but lots of games do it and I'm used to it.

Re: Official Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Discussion



^ and lots of games shouldn't. I have always hated that since ps1. I guess Doom for PC spoiled me. I swear If I new the bodies vanished I wouldn't have purchaced this. I asssssssssssumed that since the first one didn't why the hell would this one.



I mean come on! Say you got into a sweet firefight. You win then go to check out the carnage. Boom nothing! a fuckin gun laying there and a blood stain. That shit's not exceptable. Lame as shit. I really wish i didn't buy this new. The only thing that makes this single play interesting is the ACES and PEC for single play gimmick. I played the hell out of the single play in RS:V1 this one not so much. Funk or no funk this shit is whacked out a. because it's rehashed(which I wouldn't mind if the bodies didn't vanish) b. &amp; what's in paranthesis in A.



I could except if I went far a way and had to back track they were gone but for me to throw a frag in a window and then rush in to check out the damage, only to find the corpse is missing is so PSOne. Damn. $60 for psone BS. Ubi can kiss my black ass on that one. It'll be a cold day in Hell before I blind buy another UBi product. First Assassin's creed overall lameness now the whack shit they pulled with the bodies on this. Turning into another EA.



They got 2 more chances to make things right with me. Far Cry 2 and the new Splinter cell. They F those up and they go the way of EA in my book.

disappearing Bodies has happened even in the best games ever made. Thats just nitpicking. No one is really going care if they disappear. As long as the gameplay is their. Thats the only thing that matters.

Just a note, If you send me a Invite to play. I might ignore it, the second I boot up RainBow Six Vegas 2. I get 10 Invites to play. can't play with everyone.


<hr class="bbcode_rule" />


Just finished the game, Pretty fun final Level and a much better final battle.



I wonder where the Next RainBow Six will take place at? Since Vegas is wrapped up.



Only part level I really didn't like is that Oil/AirStrip level. Making you do the entire level by your self. RainBow Six is all about Squad and how you command them.

Re: Official Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Discussion



Maybe if the "best games ever made" were not FPS. FPS this generation should not have vanishing bodies. It's just straight up lazy. I can see if there are like hundreds of bodies but a skirmish of like 3 or 4. Not exceptable bub. I'm a beat it and send this one into the abyss of forgotten traded-in games along with Assissin's creed and 2 worlds.



Nitpicking to you maybe. I call it immersion or lack there of...



Hey you love PS3 and think it's better then Xbox. I think it's ok and the online sucks...



I guess I'm nitpicking on that too.;)



Oh yeah you don't have to worry about me sending you an invite again. I don't play with micless people if can help it. Kinda like I don't hold conversition with people who insist on wearing sunglasses while speaking to me. Just feels weird like you're oops I mean they're hindng somethin'...

I don't know about the no bodies things being lazy. I think it's probably to help the game run smoother. I'm sure that because it was in the first one, they probably wanted it in, but had to cut it for one reason or another so that the game functioned properly.

Re: Official Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Discussion



I will do as I please(as long as it isn't disruptive) kind sir. That being said that's my point if the bodies(in Half life 2) disappeared that game would immediately suck as well. To be triple a you need to a have a certain attention to detail and bodies phasing into oblivion is just dumb. if it's not part of the story line... it shouldn't be done. R6 is supposed to be a tactical shooter. Bodies vanishing takes away from the realism in a very extreme fashion. Bodies stay in 2 worlds that game is ass. Bodies stay in Halo(whole series) for the most part. splinter cell, Assassin Creed(for the most part)... original R6: V. The graphics are no better then the first. It's just lame. That's one of the main things I hate about Mass effect...
