Rainbow Six Vegas: Mexican border

Rainbow Six Vegas: Mexican border

Ubisoft released this video of Rainbow Six: Vegas presenting a new level: A town at the mexican border. I think everyone will immediatly see how good it looks, but also how close to Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter it looks. Considering this game uses Unreal Engine 3, the french team behind the single part of GRAW can be proud.

My God, they use the F word!
But really, very GRAWish, not that its a bad thing. This is GRAW with smaller levels and more tactical approach I'd say.

Its first person...3rd only when you are in cover.

well, cant please everyone can they ...

I thought third person might be a no no, but I'm kinda seeing why they did that. It's like an evolution of looking around corners.

Reminded me so much of GRAW when I saw it, really impressive. I can't wait for them to show some multiplayer gameplay.

Looks fantastic, arguably superior to GR:AW graphically with a smoother framerate and no obvious pop up. I love the seamless switching between first and third person views which allows you to shoot from cover, etc. It even incorporates elements from the Splinter Cell games. Can't wait to play this one...

Wow, I never realized this game was using UE3, I always assumed they were using the same engine as GRAW. Looks great, can't wait!

take it this is just another standard video,same as 360 version or does this contain ps3 footage instead??

None of you played the original Rainbow Six 3 on Xbox? Game was sooooo much fun, and then the future releases ruined it

Hopefully it returns to that fun, I have heard it does though

Damn, those gun sounds are just awesome. I hate it when you fire a big gun, and it sounds like you're firing a toy weapon. These guns really pack a punch, makes killing terrorist all the more satisfying.

Yeh i like when a gun is detailed and sound real at the same time, trailer looks good.

I hated the change to 3rd person when taking cover in PDZ. It mad the game feel so disjointed. The way they did the transition in this does look a bit better though. It is faster and the camera moves directly to the reticule instead of going into your avatars head.
Commented on 2006-10-19 16:30:41
If you guys don't like the 3rd person part, don't go into cover. It's as simple as that. You may also want to stay away from ladders.

Thats a great ending that is what I call getting right into the game wholy well you already know what Im gonna say

I hope the framerate improves vastly in the retail version.

Seems that most people that have played the demo in this months US edition of 'Xbox360' think the poor framerate spoil an otherwise AAA game.
Commented on 2006-10-19 17:15:15
^Same difference.

shaweeettttt
Commented on 2006-10-19 17:50:33
this is better than GRAW imho, because:

- it's first person
- the weapons sound sweet! especially reloading-sounds.
- you don't have to lead your squad through the whole level by tapping "follow me" all the time/saying where they should go.
- you don't have a stupid flying robot.
- it looks better
- I LOVE IT :)

Except for the helicopter part running at 15 fps (urg), the rest of the vifeo ran at a rather good 30 fps. It's badly encoded (field blending instead of frame dropping for the 29.97 fps conversion) though, so I don't know for sure if it's really smooth or not.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (2 Hours ago)
