New Rainbow Six details leak?

Postby AJB123644 » 03 Jun 2011, 11:13

"While the gameplay is based on some classic Rainbow Six mechanics, there is a cover system that takes you out of the first-person perspective and into the third,"

This somewhat saddens me as whilst I don't particularly mind this mechanic it can be very very annoying at times. In Rainbow Six 2 I have had more than several occasions where I've been in the third person mode and the angles when trying to shoot at people have been completely wrong yet if I were in first person I'd have clear shots. However, until more details are released officially I will reserve judgement.

A more tactical game sounds great anyway. I still yearn for SWAT 5.

was sounding good... the 'old school' bit to try and ease in the cinematic story bit.

SWAT don't get to see the story, that was half the fun... they are 'blind' and act on the facts. it's a mission - it was good that way.

now i guess we get to see things blowing up and dramatic hostage taking :x

I thoroughly enjoyed both Vegas 1 and 2. Especially 2 with its character customisation and such. My biggest complaint though was the 2 player splitscreen co op, the graphics looked bloody awful in places. And the lack of squad commands for player 2 was a bit of a shame really, with P2 not being in control of a second team or some such.

Can't wait to see what details come out soon though, really want to run around with my old silenced TMP and spray and pray :D

Please please please, don't turn the multiplayer into a run 'n' gun Cod clone, and keep fixed spawns as this is essential for team play.

Oh and keep the massive recoil too, and and,....well you get what i mean, keep it Rainbow!

When are we going to get a proper R6 game (e.g. Rogue Spear 2) and not this cover shooter drivel Ubisoft you f**king anti-innovation, anti-gaming, PC fanbase ignoring useless f**king faggots?

You know, i'd be more happier with a remake of the original one.

I think developers are finally learning that just because it's on console doesn't mean it has to be dumbed down and arcadey. While it doesn't sound like I'm gonna be planning routes on a pre-mission map anytime soon, I welcome the talk of tactics. I love Rainbow Six. By the way, anyone who likes the game should try to read the book; it's excellent. Classic Clancy.

As long as it keeps coop split screen campaign and the maps too that'll be great. There's a dearth of decent split screen shooters and Las Vegas 2 was brilliant because you could use your points to unlock new outfits and guns.

The first Rainbow Six on the original Xbox still remains my favourite in the series. I'd be happy if it's that good. I be extremely happy if they've dropped that rubbish Unreal engine and moved onto something that could run at 60 frames a second. I'll be in heaven if co-op campaign and terrorist hunt return.
