From CVG: Ubisoft is to reveal new instalments in the acclaimed Tom Clancy shooting franchises, Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six this year, sources have told the site.
New R6? I'm booked :) darkequitus:psn/xbl
Man i love ghost reckon games... :)
I've been waiting for a new Rainbow! My friends list ain't been the same since vegas 1. Hell, we all met with that game. V 2 wasn't as much fun, so we got even further apart. I hope it comes out as soon as possible!
so many countless hours at night play rb6v, calypso casino attack and defend and LVU campus TDMs. rb6v2 wasnt is good but didnt have the same impact on me the way the 1st one did. villa is like the new LVU and i was so happy when they had the free map pack that had calypso in it. more attack n defend ive been waiting for a new rainbow, just hope some of the info isnt true, a new game this christmas? vegas 2 just came out last year, i want them to at least give it another year or something
Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon are 2 of my favorite game franchises, can't wait until the new ones come out.
Although I found Vegas brilliant, RV2 was the same....which is not what I want for another installment so I would be a little cautious.
rainbow 6 games used to be realistic, how many special forces guys take on a helicopter gun ship with a rifle in real life? if there are not major improvements i will not be buying this. ubi need to fix the lobby system too, you need to be able to join mid game.
No expectation for RB6, but I would enjoy another Graw pretty much. Loved Graw2 a lot.
good news for rainbow fans the developers already said they will not work with vegas again
thank god!!! the 1st vegas was good, but 2nd sucked!
I never played the GRAW series but I always wanted to try it. This is my chance. Rainbow was brilliant but the graphics were horrible.
I like the 1st Ghost Recon better than GRAW.. I hate those red diamonds target box! annoying as hell
Don't hate me, but I detest both of those games, in all their iterations. Not sure why, just can't seem to enjoy them. Friends are all avid fans so this will be great news for them. Hopefully the new installments will change my opinions, I want to like them, I really do.
I loved both of them (RB6 1&2) but if they are about to release Rainbow Six Vegas 3 I won't give them my money. Ghost Recon might be something completely different. Didn't sound like they're making GRAW 3.
There's a lot of cool stuff in there, the customization (putting your face on the dude was funny as hell), terrorist hunts with friends etc. I just don't get on with them, but that's the previous games, who knows, I won't write them off yet but unless there are some changes to the formula then I don't see myself getting either. So many great games this year, it's nice to be able to be selective over the games you buy. Something for everyone out there right now, these historically just ain't for me.
i sure they're both competent gaming experiences;, but, i never found any interest in either series.
@4.1 After R6V2, Ubi stated they were done with Vegas, so the change in locale and enivronment should be awesome
My respect has dropped since Ubi bought the rights to Tom Clancy's name.
looking frwd 2 more news on this. graw was a pretty gd game but i couldn't get into it. loved vegas 1 and 2 although 2 wasn't an advancement at all on the previous game. tbh both gwaw1+2 and vegas1+2 didn't have many improvements so i really hope they take the franchises on 2 better places with these next installments. I'd quite like to see rb6 going back to just being an fps but doubt it tbh
due to UBI's p*ss poor attitude to sorting out bugs in their games (Farcry 2 still isn't fixed after all this time, and from what a few have said neither has Rainbow 6 2 Vegas)
I played the graw 2 demo ages ago and enjoyed it, never got the full game though. Maybe this time.
Yeah Ubi really screwed me over with rainbow six vegas 2. I used to play most of my games on the ps3. R6v1 was actually pretty decent on the ps3, but part 2 was practically unplayable. Actually there was no practicality about it. Me and my friends had the hardest time just staying in a room together which didn't make sense. COD4 ran pretty good, why couldnt R6V2 play as good as part 1 at least? I told myself I would never buy a Ubi product again. I dont care how good the next one is gonna be.
Hmm i'm a little skeptical tbh.. I don't care for single player but I love to do mp with my friends and to be honest, graw 2 and r6v2 were more like an expansion pack than a sequel and certainly didn't justify the price tag. I mean look at r6v2.. the lag in that game is a joke and to me it seemed as if they didn't even work to optimise the net code at all!
I like Graw2 over RB6. And RB6V2 over the first, simply because of the terrorist hunt thing. Gives you a lot replay value. Even if not online. The 2 player co-op was one of the few games at the time, and on the PS3, v2 was playable compared to 1 (frame rate!). Graw2 had astounding visuals for the time (and they are still good). The bot missions are also something which not a lot of games bring to the table (actually, almost none other game does that, yet). RB6V2 didn't have the best visuals, but they weren't bad either (UE3!). Online, actually, I don't know. Never bothered to much with online in these games, the bot modes kept me busy.
I felt underwhelmed by both franchises being the fans of the first of both iterations back in the PC/PS2 days. I enjoyed GRAW1/2 and R6V1/2 however the missing factor that I'm sure many veterans will want back is the ability to control multiple squads or at least have a bunch of AI soldiers giving you backup. Both games make the Ghost Squad and Six feel like "godly squads" -sending you in as only a 3-4 man team to wipe out an obviously bigger force. The lack of realism in that respect kind of disappointed me and amounted both series to nothing but another "hero" when that's not the point of Ghost or Six at all. It's tactical espionage, not "let's send in that 'one squad' to clean up the baddies, save the hostage, and send someone in solo". If anyone here's read the book: alot of Six's operations is done covertly like the Ghost Recon, but there's much more than just one-squad. If GRAW ever gets a sequel or R6V ever gets one. What would make me happy is if in cooperative: the 2nd player also gets his/her own squadmates as well.
Or is it one of those older games that is better on the 360?? I don't really care for the online I just want to play the single player. I beat GRAW and R6V, and R6V2
I think Graw2 is one of the best tactical shooters on the PS3, still today. It was one of my favorites when it came out. I still like it, haven't played it in a while, though (damn you Rockband). I can't say how it compares to the 360 version, though, but if you like tactical shooters, there's not much more on the PS3 except maybe MGS4, and online maybe Socom. (Well, the squad is unique, so far).
Graw wasnt that good imo. The online on the ps3 was even worse as it didn't have any voice chat.
yeh vegas 2 on ps3 was unplayable online for about the first month then without even so much as a patch it was fine. it was always a bit of an unstable game tho with frame rate drops and so on. seemed like a rushed product and was out pretty soon after the first (it showed) surprisingly though the 360 version also suffered badly in the first few weeks with servers. end of the day ubi have gone downhill but i bet i'll still buy these haha
they better make one for the Wii this time as they had promised last year
Yeah loved first one, number 2 was a lazy pile of cat dung. Looking forward to a new Ghost Recon though.
ghost recon is like a more fullfilling version of COD4, more skill, and teamwork required.
now im HYPED up for the next rainbow six what city could they use?? vegas was perfect for the game but now that they have 2 R6 games set in vegas, this one definitely wont be in vegas probably atlantic city, lol since its another gambling city...
UBI needs to let us know, I have to pre-order 2 of each for the co-op.
I just like the gameplay, being more teamwork oriented and more realistic. For example, I still play Graw2 and the new maps just even add more fun. I tried RSV2 on PC and 360, and I got to say, the PC one is horrid because they didn't optimize it right.
