NZGamer writes: "In case you missed all the hullabaloo surrounding Rainbow Six Vegas, the general consensus was that it was a fun game that (largely successfully) minimized the tactical nature of previous Rainbow Six games, and upped the action immensely. A lot of people enjoyed it – and then word came that a sequel would be released in a surprisingly short amount of time.
Rainbow Six Vegas 2 is a sequel that – as many suspected – doesn't change the formula much, if at all. Instead, it provides more of the same for those who didn't get their fill from the first title. This means more Vegas locales to muck around in, more walls to climb up/down, more terrorists to shoot, and more hostages to rescue. In a sense, it really should be called Rainbow Six Vegas 1.5 – but I guess that doesn't have the same ring to it."
