Rainbow Six Is Back Baby!
Location: lancaster, CA
I fell in love with the Rainbow Six series ever since it came out. Plus, back in the day(before Call of Duty was # 1 online) Rainbow Six held that position for a reason, rock-sold gameplay, extensive single player campaign and online playability, lots of online/ offline weapons & equipment, and tons of game modes. Tom Clancy games never fail to impress!

Personally I will never buy or play this game. The back story sounds like it was written by MSNBC for propaganda. Too bad, I used to like this franchise......
Review 2 for Rainbow Six: Patriots
I have been waiting along time for this and Future soldier! I have a feeling it will be delayed just like Future soldier was but I know it will be worth the wait! Hope they keep the terrorist hunts in tact!
I play the rainbow six Vegas two and loved the thought process that went into the solo game play. I am a multiplayer man and loved the tactical deception that carried throughout the online experience. The controls and tiny but vital errors made others flee to CoD 4 which scattered the soldiers that I battled against. I put those errors into thought and realized this game changed history. This game is over five years old and still holds its ground in my opinion to the run and gun cods which I am forced to drown in until yet another will not just change the gaming community but create a new category. Patriots will be a legend based on my opinion and will be well worth the wait..... I hope!

i have been with rainbow six since. the first xbox. and over the years it has improved in many ways. rainbow six veges 1 and 2. are great games. i am not a fan of there online but the story is really good. but my thing is the mode were you must kill of all the bad guys in order to win. that mode was something i can't forget it was so fun. to play with friends and family. i think this one will be the best, why i have seen some of the graphics and there are not going to be bad that is for sure the look amazing. also knowing the always work hard to improve there game for us and i am sure the will in this one.

Rainbow Six: Patriots

Wow, Rainbow Six... Here we go again.. What can I say about the last two? Rainbow Six: Vegas 1/2, They were AMAZING. I'm totally excited for Rainbow Six: Patriots. If you haven't heard of Rainbow Six: Vegas, You should pick it up, and try it out. It should be pretty cheap now, so enjoy. :)
In 1998 a game came out with a lot of buzz, mainly due to the involvement of Tom Clancy. What made Rainbow Six unique was the precision planning prior to your assault. It replicated the feel of the anti-terrorism tactics of the FBI's HRT, GSG-9 and other elite combat units. When Rogue Spear came out, they improved on the first game, which had followed the plot of Clancy's book fairly closely. With a new plot written with the aide of Clancy, the story kept myself and my friends gripped with interest, while the multiplayer mode kept us playing for years. Rainbow Six 3 changed the game. No longer were players planning their assaults, and the game shifted to a more free form assault and rescue style. The game's multiplayer mode continued to keep gamers playing, though it felt a little clumsy to me. R6 Vegas and Vegas 2 were great stories, and I enjoyed them, but they had lost the connection to the characters that Clancy had carefully developed. Again, the multiplayer was not as polished as the original Rainbow Six and Rogue Spear games, which had been PC-Only. When Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare came out, Rainbow Six quickly lost my attention for online play.
Rainbow Six: Patriots promises a fresh and new approach to the series. To me, it sounds as though they took some ideas from RPG games in which your decisions affect the direction of the campaign. This has recently been used successfully in the Mass Effect games, blending RPG and shooters into a new style of gameplay. It is unclear whether Patriots will return to Ding Chavez and his team, or whether they will remain the lesser known team members of the Vegas games. The story sounds fantastic, from what little has been revealed of it, but what concerns me is the promise that they will again revolutionize multiplayer gameplay. Many games promise this, and very few deliver. Ideas that may sound good on paper, may not live up to it in practice. I like what I have seen from the preview videos, but I've noticed a distinct lack of gameplay action in them. Ubisoft has released one video which features a couple minutes of preliminary gameplay video, and it looked fantastic. Very smooth transition from sniping, to rappelling down the face of the Brooklyn Bridge to reach the road deck, smoothly unhooking and switching to an assault mode. Everything appeared polished and well thought out, and there was not any noticeable lag or jittering during transitions. Best of all, during a decision making moment, there was not the lag of everyone waiting to see what you'll do which is common among action RPGs. It could be that the developer playing knew what was coming up and was ready, but it looked to me as though they waited a couple seconds with the option dialog box hovering on screen. It was not obnoxious and in your face, and did not detract from the actions around you. I think the story is interesting, and right away has me hooked, just from the trailers. I can't wait to play it. Will it live up to the hype of revolutionizing multiplayer gameplay? We'll see, but it is definitely one step forward in the story-based shooter gameplay style.

Review 14 for Rainbow Six: Patriots
The Tom Clancy Series is just amazing and i love all Tom Clancy games they are truly unique and you can always tell the Dev's acutally put a lot of time into the game to make it good, unlike other games which i'm not going to mention because people already know what game i'm talking about. I have a feeling the release date will get pushed up or back, in my experience with gamestop when they put the date as January 1st it usually gets moved.

Review 15 for Rainbow Six: Patriots
When I first saw the article in game informer I knew I wanted this game. I never really played the other rainbow 6 games, but i am deffinitely going to give this one a try. This will be a nice break from the other fps such as COD or battlefield. It looks like it has a solid story line and nice graphics. Can't wait for it to come out so i can see what it's really all about!

Review 18 for Rainbow Six: Patriots
Can't wait for online!
I have been playing this game since Nintendo 64 and they have never made a bad version. The multiplayer mode was great and I would play for house. It took cod along time to have a multiplayer mode worth playing. When rainbow six vegas came out it blew cod online player out of the water. I'm sure that they know what they are doing and this game should be worth the wait.
Review 19 for Rainbow Six: Patriots
The series that keeps going and going
Location: Roy, WA
Ive been playing this series since the original RB6, the long break after Vegas 2 left me worried their might not be any new games. Can't wait for this one, or actually if that price is correct, for $60 I can wait a little while until I can get a used copy for under $40.

Review 20 for Rainbow Six: Patriots
Won't Be Released Until Next Generation
Rainbow Six: Patriots is going to be a great game but unfortunetly it will be the first major release for the next generation systems. The reason it has been leaked as an Xbox 360 or PS3 release was to just confirm that there would be another rainbow. You should hear about its release just a little bit after February 20th when Sony shows off the PS4. Can't wait for it!
