Rainbow Six Vegas Impressions |

If you’re into the tactical shooters you’ll love Rainbow Six Vegas. I haven’t got very far in the single player yet because online is so fun. There are a lot of different game modes to keep you entertained. I still haven’t tried them all out yet. There is one thing that online is missing though, a lobby. As it is now, you select a game mode and search for a game, or you can create a game.

As far as the game play goes, it has a lot of depth in the online area, there are a lot of weapons & gear to choose from when your rank goes up. You can pick from a lot of items to customize your character. The single player is great too. I like using the snake cam to tag enemies for my team mates to take out. But the default controls for the snake cam is the sixaxis motion, which seems … very tacked on honestly, not very accurate. So I switched the controls to the right analog stick instead, ahhh much better. I really like the cover system, it feels natural. You can even do blind fire. The rappel ropes are fun, you can shoot while on the rope and you can even turn upside down and shoot, fun stuff.

The graphics are good, most of the time it looks impressive but sometimes the textures look like a PS2 game. Strange how long it took to port and they didn’t spend time to polish the graphics. Overall it’s a great game, I’m really liking it.

  • Nice! Thanks for your impressions.

    Like a PS2 game? Are you just exagerrating for effect? Because that’s pretty bad….

  • Some of the textures aren’t great, the face models aren’t great on some guys. On others it looks fine. Hit and miss. When your in the chopper looking down on the city, it looks very plain as well.

    i it when guns and objects appear and disappear when you get closer/farther from them.

    that’s so.. ’98?

    it seems that the game keeps rendering your closer environment as you keep walking, and that’s also very annoying. when you stop and look around, you can see it being rendered.

    argh. i want to sell it 🙁

    The man said it himself, it’s a port. But yes, it is upsetting to see it in such a state after how many delays? 38201 times? I have it too and I do enjoy playing it online with a BT headset. I don’t think you should be playing this game online WITHOUT a headset.

    There is no way a PS2 game can look as good as this, not.even.close.

    I agree. The graphics are minimalist and bland but the multiplayer is extremely fun. The tactical elements work very well. And you really should get a headset if you want to play.

    I don’t think the graphics are due to the port. I’ve seen the 360/PC versions and they are very similar. This game just isn’t an eye candy game.

  • I had the game for like a month … I cant get out of the 1st hood… whats the best bt headset ?

  • The lack of a lobby and the inability to create a party/clan like you can in Resistance is what put me off from buying RSV.

    It looks much better at 720p. When played at 1080i its very jaggy and muddy looking. One thing that sux is you have to set your PS3 to 720p the game does not have a setting for changing it.
