Has Rainbow Six Siege been improved by its updates?

Ah, hello, and welcome to Rainbow Six Siege’s restaurant of blowing the shit out of walls. I’ll get you a menu shortly, but first, today’s specials. Would ma’am like a breaching charge, unfurled and exploded so as to knock out a person-sized section? Or would she prefer to use burrowing grenades to excavate a perfect head-height peephole, through which she can take potshots? And for…

Rainbow Six Siege review

When firefights break out, bullets sending plaster dust into the air and punching holes through walls and doors, Rainbow Six Siege [official site] is as effective a depiction of close quarters first-person combat as I've ever seen. It reminds me of F.E.A.R., Monolith's horror-themed FPS. Take away the slow motion and the scare tactics, and F.E.A.R. is still fantastic, thanks to some of the crunchiest…

Rainbow Six Siege Adds “Open Beta” Before Launch

Stretching the definition of "beta" about as thin as can be, Ubisoft just announced a so-called "open beta" for Rainbow Six Siege [official site] starting Wednesday, November 25. You know, six days before the actual release. That's likely not enough time to fix anything with the game if something's found to be broken. But it is a perfect opportunity for you to try the game,…

Choose Your Own Clancy: Rainbow Six Art Of Siege

Ubisoft have launched an "online training platform" for Rainbow Six: Siege [official site]. Completing the five exercises included in the current Field Training section of the program and you'll earn an invite to the beta, which is due to launch in a fortnight, on the 24th of this month. I was hoping for a rigorous series of exercises, designed to sort the Clancys from the…

Patriots No More: Rainbow 6 Siege Breaches E3

E3 is a bit like a flashbang. In it comes whoosh kersplode then you're disoriented and confused and struggle to continue whatever it was you were up to. What I'm saying is that Ubisoft announced Rainbow Six Siege during E3 while we were curled up on the floor and armed men shouted at us, so we forgot to actually post about it even though we've…

Not An RPG: Crowdsourced Hardcore Tactical Shooter

Tim Schafer has taught game developers how to dream...how to dream about having piles of cash to work on projects that they reckon people crave enough to pledge some of Earth's rapidly dwindling stockpile of money for. The latest veteran to pitch to the public is Christian Allen of Serellan. Admittedly I didn't know the name but it turns out Mr Allen has worked on…

Clouded Vision – Rainbow Six: Patriots

The announcement of the distant Clancy-fever-dream that is Rainbow Six: (Angry) Patriots brought back memories of playing the first game in the series, or at least I'm going to pretend it did for the purpose of what I say next. Careful planning, exchanging tactical tips with school chums, watching my elite squad fail to navigate the complex architectural geometry of a door. The memories quite…

Spectrum Gaming – Rainbow Six: Patriots

Team Rainbow's been quiet awhile. It was 2008 when Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 was released, and while Ubi hinted last month that new games would appear in running franchises, it's not until now that iwe knew it was this one. We were expecting Spinter Cell. But it's Rainbow Six: Patriots. It's coming from Ubisoft's Montreal department, and being made alongside Ubisoft Toronto and Ubisoft Red…
