After the successful debut of Rainbow Six
, the sequel Rogue Spear
once again provides you with one of the more realistic strategic combat games available. Following the original storyline of author Tom Clancy, you take members of the group called Rainbow
, and work to fight terrorism in 17 unique missions with real world locations. To do so, you and the elite force will brief the mission, map out a plan for each team, and then try to execute it with as few mishaps possible. Members of the team include 20 different Clancy characters, each with their own special qualities like Stealth, Leadership, etc.
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Rogue Spear doesn't have many game modes to play with, but the basics are back with a few new surprises. First, the Campaign mode allows you to play all the different missions. As previously said, you control the Rainbow teams through realistic missions against international terrorism in a number of different locations around the world. Crouch down and be as stealthy as possible while maneuvering about the entire mission. You can act as a sniper and try picking off a guard from long range. Be careful though, as realistic gunshot wounds take place for every shot, so to make sure he's dead, shoot him in vital spots (i.e. head or heart). Then move your team into position. However, it doesn't just have to be YOU controlling each team. You and your friends can play together, with each person taking control of one of the four possible teams. With a numerous amount of artillery and a team full of snipers, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Rogue Spear will entertain you with the combination of both strategy and action gameplay.
The other mode to play is the Deathmatch. Much like the multiplayer version for the N64's 007 Golden Eye, you face up against your friends in many different levels with plenty of different weapons. You can change the amount of time the rounds take, the number of kills it takes to win, and what weapons are available. Hours of fun, right at your fingertips!!!
