The first 10 minutes: Rainbow Six Vegas preview

The first 10 minutes: Rainbow Six Vegas preview

After the demo 2 days ago here is now a long video of Rainbow Six: Vegas from the preview version Ubisoft kindly sent us last week. In this video I visit the Strip, play on a few gambling machines and finally try book a room in an obviously full hotel. These Vegas people sure are agressive :)
Needless to say, again, that this is from a preview version. It's more than likely that the bugs and slowdowns will be fixed in the final release.

Good timing bro, the demo was freakin' amazing, well except for the low FPS at times but i'm sure they're working on it.

d/ling now.

If the framerate is improved before release then this looking pretty good!

after the demo, id say double agent is better. but im sure that will change when i have vegas, at least i think it will. ill tell you that double agent surley looks a lot more next gen on unreal engine two than vegas does on unreal engine three. get both games because im sure vegas will be just as amazing as double agent. double agent is already a must-buy.

dling now

Don't worry.

I haven't been this excited about a game in a very long time!!!

Looks nowhere near as good as GRAW's single player; still under par to GRAW's multiplayer, graphically. Texture quality is horrible. I'm sure they probably put more resources into the multiplayer.

How long has this game been in development? Less then a year.

What? Check your self into rehab. GRAW looks pretty good, but if you stripped away the lighting engine you'd be left with a lot of low res textures and reflection maps in addition to a comparitively sparse environment. There's way, way more going on in R6V. Oh and I have experienced very little in the way of low frame rates so far, so yea for that!
Commented on 2006-10-26 19:36:04
the framerate is no problem, but all this bluriness and low res textures, looks more like a beafed up xbox 1 game than a 360 game.

Commented on 2006-10-26 22:07:43
Very nice, gotta say that the blurring when getting shot is definitely disturbing the first time, but then adds to the realism that this game is surely trying to achieve.

I just downloaded the demo and will play it for myself shortly, but are the controls for the various actions easier than with GRAW? I keep wanting to play that game, but find the controls mindbending and frustrating...
Commented on 2006-10-27 01:28:23
Very nice indeed, the ambience is amazing and those terrorists rappeling through the skylight was awesome and you were kinda lucky to stay alive there Blim!

I think some people are playing on overclocked original XBoxes because this is far and away better looking than anything from the previous gen, and GRAW for that matter.

lol. watching this video was torture. who was playing?...

Don,t worry both version will look the same.
Commented on 2006-10-30 00:29:47
Ubisoft said they have trouble getting the ps3 version to look as good as the 360 version. More memory ftw amirite? :-)
Commented on 2006-10-30 01:36:15
No, the game was made first on the 360 ad ported to the PS3, meaning the 360 version will be easier to work with.
Commented on 2006-10-30 03:14:18
That doesnt make any sense, and stop trying to spin the facts, ubi, starbreeze, and epic have all said the 360 has more memory to work with.
