Rainbow Six Vegas
raised the bar so high that all subsequent FPS titles have looked pathetic in comparison. The only thing the developers needed to do to ensure that the sequel was a success was design a few new levels, add a few new guns, and wait for the dollars to start rolling in. What makes Rainbow Six Vegas 2
such a special title is just how far above and beyond the developers went, turning in a game that improves on the first in nearly every respect.

When I heard about Rainbow Six Vegas
, I was justifiably skeptical. Apparently publishers have decided that console gamers can't handle real simulation and strategy, so games have to be dumbed down to reach the broadest possible audience. Fortunately Rainbow Six Vegas
is not the bust that Lockdown
was; in some ways, it really pulls the franchise back on track and introduces some decent new mechanics.

But if there has ever been an example of how to completely bastardize a fantastic game, it's hard to sink lower than the utterly lousy Rainbow Six: Lockdown. A backwards step in every single respect, Lockdown abandons the core elements that made Rainbow Six 3 and its expansion Black Arrow such fun, challenging and rewarding games.
