Overlooked Innovation: Rainbow Six: Vegas

NextGenRetro writes: Often, there are great games which fall victim to a whirlwind of bad press. And while this may not always be unjustified, many great ideas which were hidden by overwhelming flaws seep through the cracks of the gaming industry. It’s this kind of innovation that, when unnoticed, is sadly mistaken for a failure. So here to pull some of those ideas out is a new series: Overlooked Innovation.

Yeh I agree its been a long time coming.

Don't worry its coming. I believe Ubisoft's current Rainbow Six project is aimed at 2012/2013 release.

I dislike First to third person cover system. Completely kills the term Tactical FPS. You are not supposed to see around the cover like that. Old skool was better.

Uh, wtf? The cover system was the WORST thing about R6:V. Author must be a huge FPS noob to think this is a good thing: "Being able to survey the battlefield from behind cover was incredibly satisfying and straightforward."

Right, so you're walking down a hallway, in first-person perspective, but little do you know someone is camping at the end of that hall. He's safely in cover around the corner, and he can SEE you coming because HIS perspective is in the third person. Who the fuck at Ubisoft thought that was a good idea??

Best shooters i ever played.

Blaine, on hardcore online your peek-around-cover is massively diminished.
