The city of sin is under siege from terrorists, and it's up to the talented Rainbow Six team to take them out. The follow-up to 2006's acclaimed squad-based shooter emphasizes new customization features and refined play mechanics. Vegas 2's storyline runs concurrently to the first game's story, so a new team is now playable. The leader's name is Bishop, who can be created as a male or female operative with a choice of gear and weapons. One of the game's biggest enhancements is an expansion of the "Persistent Elite Creation" concept from earlier titles. Now players can level up their characters throughout any of the available play modes. Similar to the online component in Call of Duty 4, players receive experience points by performing actions, completing objectives, and achieving victories.
Killing terrorists, for example, or simply reaching a checkpoint earns characters experience, represented on a meter in the heads-up display. Once the meter is filled, players will advance in rank and receive new gear. Other ways of earning equipment include specializing in specific combat techniques. This A.C.E.S. system (Advanced Combat Enhancement Specialization) gives rewards for skills in three areas: close quarters, assault, and marksmanship. Players who make long-distance kills or headshots will earn points in the marksmanship category, which can unlock specific weapons like sniper rifles or assault rifles. Points are also earned for making kills while holding onto a rope, taking out multiple targets at once, using flash bangs, and so forth. Everything unlocked in one mode can be used in the others.
Since the story takes place during the first game's time frame, players will explore different parts of the city, taking the fight on rooftops, through back alleys, across residential areas, within a strip club, inside the Las Vegas Convention Center, and more. Up to 14 players (16 on a dedicated server) can compete online in one of seven modes. New to Vegas 2 are the following formats: Team Leader, Total Conquest, and Demolition. Team Leader involves hunting down and killing the rival squad's designated leader while the other side attempts to do the same. Total Conquest has teams capturing and holding three satellite transmitters until time expires, while Demolition has one side trying to detonate a bomb as the other tries to defuse it. Other online improvements include faster loading times, more host control options, and the ability to save up to four weapon profiles.

The first Rainbow Six: Vegas put new life in the series, adding a new cover mechanic (press and hold the L Trigger to snap your back up against a wall and put you in the 3rd person view), a more enjoyable locale to shoot up, and a great multiplayer mode. The sequel to perhaps on of the best shooters of yester-year is, without a doubt, more of the same. In this case, though, that isn't exactly a bad thing. The first thing you will do when popping in the game is to create your own virtual character. He will be the man you control through both the single and multiplayer segments of the game, though you can go back and change him around at any time. You can choose your weapon sets for both single and multiplayer, which you will be doing a lot of as each level can be played out multiple times with different loadouts. With the CoD4 style of earning new weapons a big hit, Vegas 2 has decided to expand upon the formula a little bit. Instead of simply earning XP for multiplayer kills, which earns your points in a system called A.C.E.S. (which basically splits up your kills into 3 categories which are in charge of what new weapons you unlock), you can now earn XP in the single player campaign. This is a nice addition, as it rewards new players who go through the campaign before jumping online, and TRIES to put them on the same playing field as those who simply play multiplayer (more on this later). New features now include a sprint button (the L Bumper). While you wouldn't think this would make much of a difference, it speeds up the gameplay a lot. Instead of being forced to saunter from cover to cover as you push up against the enemy, now you can dash across the open areas. It also makes getting around the multiplayer maps much easier. The single player story takes place mostly before the first game, with the last two levels or so continuing the fight from the first game's cliffhanger ending. The first level is more of a tutorial mission, and takes place a few years before you are scaling the skyscrapers in Vegas. It tries to set the scene for the game, and attempts to kind of rope you in. Unfortunately, you spend more time going from scene to scene to see what new fight situation you manage to get yourself into, rather than what happens next in the story. The ending in particular tries to get emotional, though its comes off as uninspired and forced (and if you are playing on Realistic, an absolute nightmare to get through). One thing not forced, though, is the graphics. The first Vegas was a benchmark for the Xbox 360, a hard thing to do as it was released near Gears of War. While the graphics now won't make your jaw drop as much as it did before, but the new bullet effects, gear hanging off your SWAT team, and environmental effects are pleasing. Sounds are good too, from the chattering of machine gun fire blasting apart window panes to the thunks and tinks of bullets playing off your cover. The voices in the game are fairly well, though the script having some better work done on it would definately have helped. One slightly disappointing aspect is the environmental damage, which is still not to scale as games like Call of Duty. Blasting a computer monitor with my M4 on automatic should do more than just make a bullet hole, it should blast it apart, or at least move it across the desk a measly inch. I guess the computers in Vegas as made of steel and concrete. Now onto multiplayer, which is still as great as before. Some maps return,
Rainbow Six Vegas 2
The game is pretty similar to its predecesor "Rainbow Six Vegas". In this version of the game, the controls are fairly the same except for the action button which is switched with the night vision button. A great enhancement has been made for off-line play which is the possibility to customize your character throughout the story mode and actually earn ranks without having to play on-line. Graphics have been improved slightly (not that there's much improvement to make) but the lighting of the game is still somewhat flawed as the brightness of the screen has to be adjusted every time to get a clear view of most dark areas. Overall a great game with a good story, the possibility to enhance your character and gain ranks off-line is great but the problem with the game's lighting conditions persist.
Better than other versions!
The buttons on the controller are the same as PS2 - that's a plus. The maps are very detailed and there are brighter maps than in previous versions. Choosing weapons can become tedious, but being able to make so many choices gives you more control over who you are as a soldier. Main menu not encouraging for a quick multi-player split-screen game. I had to 'hunt' for the correct screen. Other than that this game has much more to offer than other versions (which were good in their own ways). Very comfortable game play, especially being able to shooting around corners. Excellent for terrorist hunt (2 player split-screen). I would like this much better than Halo and similar type games if you could play co-op with more people without being online...sometimes the best soldiers are in your own living room...long live co-op split-screen!
Played both versions...
I bought R6V2 for the 360 when it came out. I liked it initially, but then grew disappointed in it. I don't think this sequel is as good as it's predecessor. Sure, sprint is nice, but it's glitchy and suffers from delayed texture loading, amongst other small technical issues. It's also way easier than RB6 since most people do tend to use respawns.. Nonetheless, I bought this game (used) to play with my ps3 friends. I expected it to be a poor port since ps3 tends to get the shaft with such things. But more to my surprise -- it runs just as well as it's 360 counterpart, and I'm not sure exactly but I swear it looks slightly better on ps3. I don't know if the graphics are clearer or what, but it looks crisper to me. Maybe it's because hdmi was more or less a tacked on feature added later to the 360 or what, I don't know I don't care. It doesn't look majorly different, but it is noticeable. The other boon is that it apparently features audio in 7.1, so it sounds superior to the 360 version. If you've got a 7.1 setup you'll appreciate this.
awesome mutilplayer game
This game is made for co-op and multiplayer, offline and online, very realistic in how fast you can die if you dont take cover. has up too 14-players in vs matches also has a mode called territist hunt. Four players can play in this can carry two primary weapons, have two lives, its really fun. Also the story can be played spilt screen with story mode, and terristist hunt but not when vs. other players online. Alot weapons and customization with all weapons and armor also clothing. Can also be a female and or male charachter you choose that at the begging of game. If love a game with alot replay value a great Realistic shooter then this games for you.
