R6: Vegas 2 review over at Gamezone

Posted at 14:28 PST by Rifter | General Rainbow Six News


Gamezone sends word that they have reviewed the PS3 version of Rainbow Six: Vegas 2. | Digg This | Glink It Hailed by many gamers and gaming critics alike as a masterpiece, Rainbow Six Vegas delivered a truly remarkable tactical first-person shooter to the next-generation consoles with much success. Not only was it an intense experience but it also showed that that there is still room to improve the first-person shooter genre. It certainly improved many aspects of the genre and since then other franchises - like the Call of Duty series - pushed their own shooter to new and exciting heights. If the first game in the Vegas series was the first step into a new and marvelous direction then Rainbow Six Vegas 2 is merely just retracing said step. Don’t get me wrong, this doesn’t make this sequel a bad game but rather a familiar one with nothing completely new to show us.
They gave it a good, solid score. Head over and check it out.

How real, are realistic weapons?

Posted at 0:02 PST by Rifter | General Rainbow Six News


Popular Mechanics has done a phenomenal new article about weapon realism.
In real life, people rarely want to get into a firefight. But in many video games, particularly military-themed first-person shooters (FPS) like the just-released Rainbow Six Vegas 2, you can’t wait to step into the line of fire. After all, you’re an elite commando, and there’s no way not to fight—no button to press to call your nervous wreck of a wife or go hang out with the kids. It doesn’t matter how many bullets you take while gunning down whole platoons of terrorists and mercenaries, because this is red-blooded escapism at its geekiest. So shut up and starting shooting guys.
