This game was the peak of Ubisoft's Rainbow Six franchise. Here is why;
-Realistic AI. The enemy AI will execute hostages if they see the player, run if they are outnumbered, and even surrender to trick the player into letting your guard down, so that their friend can shoot the player in the back!
-Lots of weapons, gear, and customisability. One can customise not only their own soldier's weapons, gear, and armour, but their teammates as well.
-Planning. The game allows the player to set waypoints for their team and AI teams, and the AI teams will automattically follow. One can even set "Go codes" to make the AI wait for the code to begin an action, such as breaching.
-The multiplayer still works. One can set up their own dedicated server in a few simple steps. See my discussion post for help.
-Lots of fun game modes and maps. This game has many fun game modes, such as Lone Wolf (terrorist hunt alone); Terrorist Hunt (kill all the terrorists); and Hostage Rescue (self-explanatory). It also features classic maps such as Peak, Presidio and Prison.
-Fairly good graphics. While these graphics aren't amazing, they still hold up well today.
-Non-linear maps. Play your way.
So, if you have played Rainbow Six Vegas 1 or 2, come see what the classic games were like! If you've never played Rainbow Six before, now is a great time to start!
