Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas Preview
." This fall, our favorite elite counter terrorist group, Team Rainbow, is heading to Vegas. Unfortunately, they're not heading to Sin City for a bachelor party or to play in the World Series of Poker.
In Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas for the Playstation 3 you and your team will be squaring off with a very naughty group of terrorists, holding hostages and planning to blow up the world. Well maybe not the world, but it will be bad.
In this sixth iteration of the multi-bazillion selling franchise (Ok it's more like 13.5 million, but that's still a lot) Ubisoft is pulling out all the stops with gorgeous graphics, advanced, AI, super-cool gadgets (including the snake-cam!) and all new game play.
Players will have the privilege of rappelling, busting through windows and walls, and pulling off all those other cool tricks we've seen Jack Bauer do.
One cool new game play feature is the ability to tag specific targets and assign them to different members of your unit. This way you can have your buddies jump a pair of terrorists, while you flank them, or maybe sneak off to the lounge for a cocktail with that cute waitress.
Of course, no violent game would be complete without some politician throwing a fit over the game's content. In this case, Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman is claiming that the game could damage the city's ability to make money. Sounds completely realistic right? No word yet on whether or not Vegas will allow Ubisoft to market the game with the slogan "What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas
