Rainbow Six Vegas debriefed

20-minute hands-on with team Rainbow's finest is revealed inside...

Rainbow Six Vegas on Xbox 360 is shaping up to be an incredible gaming experience. Hell, with its eye-bursting realism it's shaping up to be an incredible experience full-stop. We recently had the opportunity to playtest this much-awaited game in Vegas (of all places), and now we're ready to spill the beans...

"The O.P.A system, which is at the heart of the Vegas gameplay, comes to the fore on once we've made it down the stairwell intact. Montreal Studios' idea is to have a series of situations in which you need to adapt your game plan to save potential casualties and diffuse the terrorist threat as efficiently as possible. Observe, Plan, and Assault works nearly as fast as you can say it. Sliding a snake cam under a closed door allows you to check patrolling patterns and target numbers, and a quick tagging system prioritizes terrorists for each team member. Once you've ordered you team by the door, it's up to you to decide on how to enter the premises. Go in guns blazing, roll a grenade in or disorientate your enemy with a flash grenade".
