One of the best tactical-shooter ever made.Good singleplayer and a fantastic coop with a multi-player mode that still play good by today standard.Nothing alike the travesty that is siege.I really hope that Ubi could remake this one in UE4 and keep the spirit of the original but i guess it will never happen,they will still try to shove the far cry formula in our throats.

If you've ever said to your self "I want a fun, challenging tactical shooter I can play with my friends", than ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ slam that buy button and buckle the ♥♥♥♥ up for the best ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ tactical shooter ever created. Made in 2003, Ravenshield was the 3rd installment of the Rainbow Six series, and one of the first to be 3D. At its release, Featuring a whopping 50(!) guns to choose from and customize(in TWO THOUSAND THREE!) this game has stood the test of time for the last 13 years as the single best tactical shooter you will ever ♥♥♥♥in' play.

This game is quite fun. Better than some of the modern games that are released...

Gameplay
This is a tactical FPS game, in which you can control small squads of soldiers to eleminate a hostile threat or rescue one or more hostages. The game continues off of the story-line of the other Rainbow Six games. Once I started to play, I rapidly enjoyed the game more and more.

Side-Notes
This game should run fine on about any computer created past 2003, I would think. The controls are smooth, some may need rebinding or just to be bound in general once you start up. The tutorial is recommended, seeing that I had absolutly no clue on how to play this game until playing through them.

I would rate this 95/100. Quite a fun time, if you enjoy these types of games.

"Remember way back when games were simpler and yet still challenging?"
Well, this game is certainly much more challenging, but has the complexity of a game way ahead even most current games.
Take for example in Battlefield, you can open doors, well while in this you can slowly scroll the scroll mouse button (MB 3) to slowly open a door, or a shutter.

The character customization is spot on: Change your character (Individual appearances), their class, armour type, armour camo/colour, loadout (Guns, attachments, equipment, gadgets), squads (Up to 2full+1), squad commands, smart AI (allied and enemy), incredible level design, challenging missions, co-op (online with special set ups or local LAN set ups), firing range/tutorial.

Certainly there is something I missed, but there is just too much to name. Its an amazing game with amazing mechanics and tactical gameplay. Its challenging, its fun, its definetly not short, and it sure is worth your time!

Do all the people giving this a 'recommend' not play the game? I feel like if they did, they would eventually get to mission 9 and quit because of how terrible it is. DON'T MIX GENRES UNLESS YOU CAN DO IT WELL. I mean, I guess these devs are already out of business for making awful games, so that advice will fall on deaf ears. Anywho, that's when the game decides it wants to change from 'tactical FPS' to 'stealth' game and it just does not work well in the least. The first 8 missions were okay with the 2.0 mod, but even then, the AI still is pretty terrible. I haven't played too many of this genre, but at the least I can say SWAT 3 and 4 were leagues better, even if the R6 franchise did it first. Supremely disappointed with my purchase of this game.
