11. Again... Mar 12, 2008, 22:09 Blackhawk
 
The thing people keep missing is that they didn't make decisions that made R6 Vegas into a poor tactical shooter. They decided, rather, not to make it a tactical shooter at all. As a modern military action shooter, it is a blast. Saying it isn't realistic is like complaining that Freelancer wasn't a realistic depiction of space combat, or WoW doesn't capture the nuances of European martial arts. That wasn't what any of them were trying to do.

Now, if you like action shooters, grab a copy. It is a great game in its own right.

If you only like tactical shooters, accept that the property's owners have decided not to make Rainbow tactical shooters anymore. Mourn the loss of the leader in a genre that is almost dead. I know I do. I played and loved every Rainbow game from the original through Iron Wrath, the SWAT series, OpFlash, and the original Ghost Recon, every one of them several times (except Black Thorn - blech) and I was disappointed that Rainbow wasn't going to be a realistic series anymore.

Oh well. I'm mature enough that I can enjoy the action series as an action series instead of insisting that it is a bad game because it isn't like a different game released to a different market.
