If the good lads at Infinity Ward have taught us anything with Call of Duty 4, it's that a gaming franchise can be taken in a fresh and immersive direction both online and offline. Rainbow Six: Vegas 2, unfortunately, does not even try to implement any sort of significant changes to its formula to spice things up. So is this a worthy successor of a critically acclaimed game, or just an attempt to squeeze out more cash out of rabid fans of the first Vegas?
Let me just go ahead and lay it on you cold turkey without beating around the bush; this is Rainbow Six: Vegas 1.5. Not a true sequel, but more of an expansion pack that helps advance the story and offers little, if any, changes to the other departments. And to top it all off, the game feels incomplete and buggy from time to time creating a perfect icing for a half eaten moldy cake."
