Whereas other shooters prioritized action over realism, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six popularized the tactical side of the FPS genre. Playing as an elite group of soldiers who are part of the new Rainbow counter-terrorism team, it’s your job to safely and stealthily eliminate threats. This is just as challenging as it sounds, thanks to Rainbow Six‘s attention to detail and realistic AI.
In each scenario of the game, you’ll have to properly plan out your attack. Although you only control one of the soldiers during gameplay, you’ll be in charge of commanding other soldiers in your unit as well. In Rainbow Six death is permanent as well, so losing a fellow soldier prevents you from using them in later missions. It’s up to you to ensure that the proper equipment is available and procedure is followed, otherwise you’ll have no hope of success.
