Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Black Arrow – Review

All I've ever asked is for First Person Shooters to be more realistic. By the release of Duke Nukem 3D I was sick and tired of the conventions of the genre. Shooting people dozens of times without incurring a single flinch, apocalyptic explosions that left my enemies unmarked and with full faculties until a single shot from a tiny pistol did that critical last hit point of damage and they exploded in the distinctive, gruesome, and incredibly familiar shower of guts marked the end of their lives.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six (Nintendo 64) – Review

On one level, never before on the N64 system has there been a game that achieves such a balance of depth, realism, maturity, and intensity the way Rainbow Six does. This is a game that may look like an FPS on the surface, but in actuality, its more a real-world simulation of squad-based tactics during 12 rescue or assault-type operations.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six (Nintendo 64)

Game Description: Strategy fans, get ready Rainbow Six adds a new twist on gaming. Choose your character directly from the Tom Clancy thriller that inspired the game, and then put your thinking cap on, because you’re going to have to plan out this entire mission on your own. Once you’ve set everything up, sharpen your reflexes and jump into the fray, taking on terrorists, diffusing bombs, and freeing hostages. The 12 amazingly detailed missions ensure that the game will last a long, long time. There’s even a Two-Player mode that puts you and your friend on the same team!

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six (Nintendo 64) – Second Opinion

I have to admit that after trying my hand at the demo of the original Rainbow Six on the PC, I was so overwhelmed by the strategy and planning that went into it that I never gave the game much of a chance. Having played Rainbow Six for the Nintendo 64, I realize now that that was a huge mistake. Granted as Chi said, the game is more simplified, this is a good thing in my book because the controls were a lot more approachable and the planning phase didnt feel like homework.
