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.
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.Read more ›
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.
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.
