"While not a massive departure from the original game, Rainbow Six Vegas 2 polishes the squad shooter action and adds a pile of role-playing depth. Every kill is logged, with the points edging you closer to the next promotion and new goodies. Further character personalisation is available through the face scan option using the Xbox 360 and PS3 camera. But the meat of the game still revolves around clearing rooms and tactical shootouts in hotels. Playing through the story on your own is perfectly entertaining - controlling your squad is satisfyingly easy - but the real thrills are online. Terrorist Hunt, where you team up with other players to take out computer-controlled assailants, is particularly enjoyable. In many ways, Rainbow Six Vegas 2 feels like a buffed-up version of the original game - the graphics are adequate, though hardly a leap forward - but the slick controls and character development features make this a must for fans."
