I was somewhat skeptical given that the first one left me, and everyone else who played it, wanting more as it concluded with one hell of a cliffhanger. Wrapping up the story is something that I wanted to see so badly, but yet I also wanted to see some solid improvements over the first installment that was released in November 2006. 16 months later Ubisoft finally releases the long awaited sequel, and although there are some minor improvements, the game still feels very similar to the original, which isn't that bad of a thing given how well the first one played.
When the original Rainbow Six Vegas was released in 2006 the Unreal 3 powered graphics engine provided some good quality eye candy. The only major complaint was that the visuals took a step down to accommodate the multiplayer mayhem that the game offered. I myself was a little disappointed by this fact given that the Unreal 3 engine also powers Gears of War, which was released around the same time, and it looked gorgeous in single player and multiplayer alike."
