But if there has ever been an example of how to completely bastardize a fantastic game, it's hard to sink lower than the utterly lousy Rainbow Six: Lockdown. A backwards step in every single respect, Lockdown abandons the core elements that made Rainbow Six 3 and its expansion Black Arrow such fun, challenging and rewarding games.

I have yet to play a videogame that makes me jump the way Ghost Recon does when I hear the "thuck!" of a bullet hitting my on-screen commando, leaving him gasping for air as he shouts to his comrades, "I've taken a hit!" That is, of course, if he's lucky enough to take the hit on his body armor.
The game boasts fifteen missions, and with a title like Ghost Recon 2 (GR2), most players would probably expect to spend a lot of time sneaking around. Those players would also be wrong. The "Ghost" squad rarely relies on stealth, and functions more like an elite team of combat specialists than a reconnaissance team.

Rainbow Six 3 is distinguished from the PC versions as much by what it takes away as what it adds.
In the last few years I have become more and more impressed with the steps taken forward by designers to enhance the experiences provided by military simulations. Everything from accurate weapon representation to the "one shot one kill" motif, have brought these games to a much higher level. And as Mike suggests, Tom Clancy's titles are the cream of the crop in this regard. They capture an urgency and essence that other's cannot seem to duplicate and for me is an exciting, enticing, and challenging experience.
