UGO: Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Preview

UGO's Russel Frushtick writes: The first Rainbow Six Vegas was a breath of fresh air when it dropped in late 2006. In an attempt to streamline a series that was once focused on planning phases and punishing diffuculty, Ubisoft designed Rainbow Six less like a real world tactical op and more like an episode of 24. The end result was a great mix of action and strategy, and offered up a killer multiplayer experience.

Rainbow Six Vegas 2 doesn't appear to be reinventing the series as much as the first game did. In fact, to the untrained eye you'd probably think you were looking at the same game. But beneath the graphics and gameplay, whose tweaks are minor but appreciated, some very nifty additions have been made that are sure to enthuse just about any member of the Rainbow team.

Rainbow Six Vegas 2 is looking pretty solid for a Spring release, which is great news since there aren't usually a ton of triple A titles out around that time (save for GTA, of course). We'll keep tracking it and hopefully get some hands-on with the mutliplayer sooner rather than later.

The story is too old to be commented.

Another boring cash in, Will the multiplayer have ps2 looking graphics and animations again?
The ability to look around corners in my eyes is like cheating, it promotes campers.
And its back to vegas again, yawn,, no thanks.

its the continuation from the first one. It'll be getting my cash.

Did you even play the first one? Looking around corners does not promote campers. You stay camped to long you'll get picked off from the back with ease.

just wondering though if this one is going to be another 360 port or has it been made on its own?

From what I read a couple months ago, they said it was both versions were made at the same time. Being this game was not made from the ground up for the PS3, I'm going to guess it won't look as good as the 360 version again. That is just my guess.
