Pros: - Every game is "different" since the live players will do different things during each game, there are many different locations, players can choose different characters.
- Great characters to choose from, each with different abilities.
- This game uses STRATEGY and marksmanship to defeat the other 5 live players.
- You can unlock other characters with points the more you play the game.
Cons: - It is a single player game, so you need 2 Xboxes to have 2 kids play at the same time.
- You should use headphones when you play this game, because sounds help you determine where the opponents are. It is better to be able to communicate with other players.
- You start out as a recruit until you earn enough points to unlock other characters. You can purchase them, but it easy to earn them.
I have bought this as a gift for other Xbox players as well. I really enjoy watching my sons play it. Very interesting and exciting to watch and play.
The game is broken down into 3 game modes. Situations, Muliplayer, and Terrorist Hunt (co-op).
Situations: There are 10 situations that you play through solo and complete the task at hand. It can be eliminate all the terrorists, protect a hostage, or rescue a hostage. There are 3 challenges per situation, usually finish with 50+ health, then others like finish in a certain amount of time, kill 2 terrorists with frag grenades, etc. There are also 3 difficulty levels, Normal, Hard, and Realistic. If you complete all 10 situations (not all challenges, just all situations), a bonus 11th situation unlocks. To do that one you have to be online as it is actually a coop mission. I won't give away what it is, but it is challenging.
Multiplayer: Basically it is 5 vs 5 where one team is protecting a bomb and the other is trying to disable it. I tried this mode out and it literally just became the first team to kill all players from the other team. That is fine, but just call it team death match. This mode is really about teamwork. If you have a 5 man group that communicates and works together, you can dominate 5 players playing randomly together. Multiplayer is pretty shallow at this point, hopefully it is addressed in future DLC. It is basically team death-match even though it is not laid out that way.
Terrorist Hunt: This is the meat and potatoes of the game in my opinion. It is up to 5 players coop to complete a task. You use premade "operators" (players) that each have their own strengths and weaknesses. For the most part, I found it fairly well balanced, and most players can find a few operators they are comfortable with. In this game mode, there are several different objectives randomly chosen by the servers. You can play classic terrorist hunt, disarm the bombs, protect the hostage, or rescue the hostage. The game inserts suicide bombers into the level that are armored. We call them "breathers" (Think of Juggernauts in COD only with bombs strapped to their vest) because you generally know they are near as you can hear them breathe before you can see them. If they get close to you, they will blow themselves up as well as anyone in the vicinity. There are 20 operators to choose from or you can use a "recruit" which is somewhat of a build your own guy, but not in the truest sense because you can't keep a player build or modify anything about him/her. There are 10 attacker operators and 10 defender operators. They are unlocked with the ingame currency known as "renown." There are 5 sets of operator classes. For instance, SAS, FBI, GST, etc. Each class has 2 Attackers and 2 Defenders. Each operator per class costs more then the first. For example, the first FBI Operator costs 500 renown, the second 1000, 1500, and the 4th is 2000. You pick which operator to buy and you can jump between classes so you could buy all FBI operators before buying an SAS operator if you want. After you have purchased an operator, you can upgrade their weapons with silencers, scopes, front handles, flash suppressors, etc. Those items all cost renown.
You can create a team of 5 friends in a group and jump in a game, or you can go with 4 or less friends. You even have the option to try a mission solo if you wish. Want to play with a full squad and don't have 4 friends to join you, you can jump into a game where you will be teamed up with random players to play the mission. You could also do a combination of 2 friends in your squad and join with 2 randoms to complete your 5 man squad.
Normal: This is the easiest of the three levels. When you start out, this seems pretty difficult. After playing the game for a few hours, this level becomes almost too easy. I have not tried this level solo other then the situations which require you to play solo. I will play the terrorist hunt missions with one friend on this level and I have what I would estimate at about a 80% win percentage with just two players. In normal, the AI seems to be less accurate with their shooting, does less damage, and are easier to kill. Enemies will throw flash bangs, but they will not throw frag grenades. Their movements aren't dumb, but they aren't always smart. It is a good challenge when starting the game and building up renown to buy operators and weapons, but it also pretty much allows everyone to go on their own and go Leroy Jenkins on the map if you have a full squad. (If you don't know what the reference is, I beg you to do a youtube search of Leroy Jenkins).
Hard: This is a step up from normal obviously. The enemy AI is smarter, there are generally more suicide bombers, they are more accurate with their shooting and they cause more damage when they hit you. They will use more flash bangs/stun grenades and they will use frag grenades. Their movements are more intelligent, but still not great. I generally need a full size squad to beat a level on Hard and my completion percentage drops to about 20% depending upon my squad.
Realistic: Now I find this level really challenging. In fact, I would say my completion % is at or less then 5% and those were only when I played Hostage Rescue. Enemies are much smarter, there are several more suicide bombers, they do a great deal of damage when they hit you and they are pretty accurate with their shooting. There movements are much smarter, but still not perfect. They throw frag grenades when practical and sometimes they are almost too good. To complete this you have to be well coordinated and good and/or lucky and good. Going rogue is a death wish.
Overall: As much as I want to give this game 5 stars, I just can't. The game seems shallow for a full priced game. The lack of a single player story mode is sorely missing as I loved previous Rainbow 6 story modes. They removed the wall grab 3rd person view from previous games and replaced it with a side tilt of the gun. I actually like that because it is more realistic. The gameplay I feel is great and pretty well balanced. I wish the normal difficulty was a little bit harder or the hard difficulty level was a hair easier. I feel 4 difficulty levels would be a good thing as opposed to the included 3. Also, I miss the customization of the previous Rainbow 6. You don't get to build a player from scratch. Pick out his weapons and armor, race and sex, secondary weapons and so forth. For a game released in 2015, this is a major miss that i supposed could be addressed in future DLC. There are 11 maps, which is good for start up. Only one versus mode I think is very short sided as it doesn't even ship with a team death match or capture the flag or anything similar. With the expectation of DLC, the game can only get better. If Ubisoft releases DLC for free, the game will deserve all 4 stars it got. If it goes the route of charging for DLC, it will fall to a fun game, but a 3 star game because I don't feel this is a full retail priced game as it stands. Even at $50 (current price), you are missing out on a campaign story mode and you only get one versus mode so you are left basically with situations (which have no reason to play after you beat them) and the coop mode terrorist hunt.
I'm a casual gamer. I like playing single player and usually avoid playing online (it's not fun listening to kids swear like crazy and call each other ridiculous names). I remembered Vegas 1 & 2 having a great story mode and was excited to experience the same thing. That isn't happening with this game. There is a poorly executed lone wolf version of single player but it lacks any reason to replay the missions after you painstakingly make it through each environment. Maybe I'm missing something but I remember having a squad in the Vegas series, where you could work with your AI team members.
One other thing that I miss from the previous Vegas games is the ability to hide behind walls and blind fire, or lean out. These controls feel too much like the CoD and BF games, which were ok, but not realistic enough for me, unlike the Vegas series was.
I'm glad I waited for the game to drop down to $20 before I bought it because it feels like a $20 game, something that I'd spend a couple of weeks with before burying within the other games that I no longer play. A strong positive to this game though, the graphics are amazing! I just wish they'd put more effort into single player games, because I feel as though there are quite a few of us older gamers who prefer to play in the later evening and don't want to deal with the kids on multiplayer.
