So for Rainbow Six: Vegas on the PS3. I've never played it on 360, never looked at it on 360, never really cared to. All I can say is, the game plays fantastic, it doesn't feel like some "ported" game. The graphics look great, I am yet to have any loss of framerate, everything is super fluid, controls are fantastic as well.
The controls feel extremely natural, all the buttons are in just the right spot, and overall the game plays extremely well, I was very impressed. You aren't trying to quickly switch between stick and d-pad/buttons to do certain things, for instance, instead of pressing down on the d-pad to kneel, you just press down on your left thumbstick that you almost always already have your thumb on. Everything plays this way.
The campaigns are interesting and fun, and the weapons seem quite accurate. The only thing I really dislike about the campaign is checkpoint saves, in fact, I DESPISE checkpoint saves, and the checkpoints often times are far apart. It forces you to play more carefully, but can be extremely frustrating at the same time. But it's not a make or break thing.
The squad controls are very well done as well, they are extremely easy to work with, in fact, you only use 3 buttons, one to call them closer/stop them, one to tell them to hold fire or fire at will, and the last button you use to tell them where to go, which works by just looking somewhere with your crosshairs and pressing the button.
The A.I. is phenominal, your squad clears rooms properly, takes cover, etc... I was blown away.Read more ›
The weapons are realistic. The cover system is what every cover system should be. Balance is perfected; even sniper rifles and shotguns may serve you well strategically. Gimmicks like snake-camming under doors prior to breaching and inverted rappels down the sides of casinos are executed supremely well. Multiple routes exist in almost all scenarios. Tactical team play is encouraged. Four people can play through the campaign together online, and with mics! And so the list of pros goes on and on...
That doesn't mean that the game is without flaws. The most striking thing will be the visuals. You'll begin the game in Mexico, where everything continually looks like it's caked in dirt. Color there really is a rarity. Eventually you make it to Vegas where things brighten in a major way, but you will notice the age of this graphical engine. Sound can be hit or miss in online playthroughs. I once played for two hours with friends, unable to hear my own gunfire. Goals are sometimes obscure and not pointed out very well, leaving you feeling as though your game has glitched if you can't find the right spot to activate the next objective. Night vision is AWESOME at close range, but comes up short when sniping (what you'll most likely want to use it for). Lastly, you can't run in this game. Rarely will you find yourself wanting to, but it does take away from the experience when you find yourself wanting to.
Still, flaws and all, I still have to give this game a four star rating. The reason for that is that it delivers a multi-player, tactical experience rarely seen in our modern gaming era.Read more ›
Overall the game has good picture quality. Content ok. But for PS3 there are no updates. So I advise buying it used and trying it.
However, the saddest and most annoying part of this game for me is that the 1080i feature doesn't actually work properly and makes the game uselessly blurry--to the point where Ubisoft should be sued for false advertising. In a world where 720p games are "the norm," advertising 1080i when it doesn't exist or work is just plain lying. The workaround for this problem is to reconfigure/force your PS3 to output video at 720p--and while this addresses the problem by not giving you 1080i, every time I want to watch a Blu-ray movie I have to switch it back to 1080p and then back to 720p to play the game and so on until this gets exceedingly annoying. This bug alone is almost a deal breaker for me and had I known about this before my purchase, I might not have made the purchase.
