Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield

 

Traditions change. Even in the strongest franchises, they are prone to change. The recent Command and Conquer: Generals made the leap from the classic Command and Conquer vertical menu bar to a horizontal one, oft-associated with its competitor...

Raven Shield takes a step forward in some important areas, but elsewhere it also takes a step backward. The net result: This isn't the Rainbow Six that made Rainbow Six a household name in 1998. But after such a long hiatus, any game with Ding Chavez...

Rainbow 6 Vegas 2 - Xbox 360

 

Despite being a huge fan of Rainbow 6, I wasn't expecting much from the sixth instalment of the popular tactical shooter series. The comparatively short development period between Rainbow 6 Vegas 2 and Rainbow 6 Vegas led me to believe that Ubisoft...

We have some exclusive Rainbow 6 Vegas 2 gear to get rid off, I mean give away, courtesy of Ubisoft! We could give these three prizes away as one bundle, but we like to be fair and give everyone a chance to win something so: 1st Prize: Rainbow Six...

The multiplayer aspect of Rainbow 6: Vegas takes the game to another level. The four player co-op mode allows you to play with friends and pull off a whole range of strategic manoeuvres that couldn't be done in single player, the maps are excellent...

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Critical Hour

 

It is an Ubisoft trend to release expansion packs for the Xbox shortly after the main game was released, as you can see in recent titles such as Ghost Recon 2: Summit Strike, Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow, Farcry: Instincts: Evolution, and now Rainbow...

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3 Companion Disc

 

I know, you're probably wondering why I would even bother to take the time to review a demo disc that was released several years ago and contains demos for "old" games and downloadable missions now available for free on Xbox Live. The simple reason is...

Includes demos of four excellent Clancy titles ; The gameplay of all four still holds up well today, particularly Splinter Cell and Rainbow Six 3 ; Excellent downloadable missions for Splinter Cell and maps for GRIT

Both the Splinter Cell and Rainbow Six 3 demos aren't quite as polished as the finished product ; It's been over two years since this disc's release, so these games aren't exactly hot right now

The usefulness of this disc has diminished quite a bit already. While both the Splinter Cell and Rainbow Six 3 demos will give new players a good idea of what to expect out of each series (sans the online support of course), the Ghost Recon demos bare...

Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow Review

 

Global terror rears its ugly head once again and Ubisoft sends Team Rainbow into the thick of it in Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow on the Xbox. Protected by a Flak Jacket, TVG goes in for the kill…

Overall, Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow is a good game that continues where RS3 left off. The single player mode has a good story to weave, and the appearance of the game is a good one. The game is not perfect, with a distinct lack of physics detail to...

Product Specifications

The year is 2007, and the world stands on the brink of a terrifying global conflict. As the United States is caught in an embargo-induced oil crisis, terrorist attacks against American interests - and citizens - escalate. Venezuela, which still supplies the United States with oil, also becomes a target. As unrest grows in America, protests rock the streets of Caracas. And while the shadow of terror looms, madmen plot even greater acts of murder and destruction. No place is safe, no border secure in this hour of fear. Only one thing stands between the world and the threats that now face it: RAINBOW, an international task force dedicated to combating terrorism in all its forms. A top-secret organization consisting of the best field operatives the United Nations has to offer, RAINBOW is the most potent weapon in the world's arsenal. Backed by the most sophisticated technology available and trained to the limits of human capability, they are the best hope in the war against terror.
