I've been a big fan of modern combat games like those in the Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, and Brothers in Arms series. It wasn't until recently that I picked up Rainbow Six Vegas 2 when it was on sale on Steam, and I'm very glad that I did.

RSV2 is primarily an FPS game, but you get to control a small team of two other specialists as you comb through industrial and commercial complexes looking for bad guys to shoot. Your team will follow your orders to move to a position, throw grenades, stack up on a door, etc. allowing you to coordinate and time your attacks on enemy positions.

The tactical aspect of the game is especially apparent when you have to clear rooms. You can scope out a room using a snake cam and tag two enemies for your squadmates to target first. After commanding your team to stack up on a door, you can tell them to breach with C4, throw grenades first, or just open the door and start shooting. I found myself replaying sections of the game to see how successfully I could coordinate the assaults. The rooms are designed so you usually have a choice of doors, windows or skylights to use as entry points.

The single player campaign took me about 8 hours to finish, which is a little short, but I thought it was one of the more satisfying FPS games that I've played in a while. There's also a Terrorist Hunt game mode that's basically just stand-alone levels where you're timed in how quickly you can kill all of the bad guys. They give you a pretty big selection of levels, adding tons of replay value to the game.

I'm thinking of going back and playing through the first RS Vegas game, which many people deem the better of the two. As far as I know, you don't need to play the first Vegas in order to enjoy Vegas II. If you liked other modern combat shooters like Modern Warfare or Medal of Honor, but wished for less twitchy and more open-ended gameplay, I high recommend checking out Rainbow Six Vegas 2.

I think most people would agree the first game was the better of the two. That being said, I don't agree with many people saying the game is bad or not that great. This is a really good game. Someone below had said it was short..... They must be used to playing oblivion or something because this game was longer than the first. I was glad to be done with it by the time the end came around.

The graphics are really nice. They are like an updated version of the first game. There's a few bugs that drove me nuts such as an enemy shooting through a wall that's supposed to be cover. Glitch. This game features shooting through cover such as wood or plastic, but i'm speaking of actual walls. You can see their rifle sticking out of it. Another annoyance is the fact that you can die if someone shoots your hands alot. I understand that you can do that to your enemy, but still.
The game only crashed on me once. I closed to desktop, restarted the game and was fine. The new patch seemed to work fine for me.
As for the setting, I thought the levels were very nicely laid out. Yes the casinos in the first one were really cool and fun, but there's alot more to vegas than just that. The story was revolving around catching someone, not just fighting your way through things.

Gameplay is the same. There's a whole experience/level up scheme to this game that can be a little cheap with the weapons. There should've at least been the same weapons available as in the first game. You end up having to level up and use certain strategies to get the items you want. It's annoying, but I thought it was cool leveling up. In this game you tend to get hurt alot more than the first one on normal difficulty. Even with the heaviest gear on I found I was dying alot more.

Well I have played this on the X-box 360 and just recently I decided that I wanted it for computer LAN party games with my kids. Loaded up the games and started it the other night. Graphics on the PC look awesome, I was shocked at how much better a good graphics card can push this game compared to the 360.
The game itself is good, the story is good and the level of action for me was just right. I have been waiting for the 3rd one for years.
For the price you can pick it up for and with a decent PC, I would reccomend it. I will update one we get to LAN party this game soon.

I recently purchased this game for a friend who wanted to join our weekly FPS group, I couldn't beat the price of $3. I have been playing this game since it came out and I have to say that it is always a blast. Its replayability is unsurpassed, no matter what games come out we end up going back to vegas 2 in the end. The drawbacks that keep it a 4 star game are enemy spawn points, in which you have to run over a "trip wire" to get the enemies to spawn, which sometimes ends in them spawning on top of you. Another one is the lack of AI realism. The AI seems to have ESP and can sense where your head is going to be before they even turn the corner or turn around, giving them superhuman reflexes that are quite frustrating to compete against. It just isn't realistic in those situations. Overall, though, outstanding game.

Had some trouble getting it to run in Windows 10 64 bit. The game ran but lost use of mouse functions in game. Then a forum said to run the game in administrative mode and that got everything working. Had to slow down mouse tracking in options in order to smooth out game maneuvers.
This is a likable game and frankly more fun then dealing with $60 new games that unfortunately don't play well with my GTX750TI. But I prefer a more enjoyable gaming experience in FPS then more glitz and graphical headaches of these new games. Why spend $60 for a game that you have to lower settings to base levels? I'll wait for those games to come down in price and maybe then the $400 graphic card will be $200.
