    unfortunately tom clancy has nothing to do with the games that have his name on it anymore.

    R6 as you know it is dead. Dead. Dead.
    Actually it was just the first three PC games that stayed with the original Rainbow 6 gameplay. All console games as well as the latest Lockdown has been pretty much arcade.

    Is this realistic? I understand the whole R6 cocnept is based off of a novel, but it's a Clancy novel... and he typically grounds his stuff in reality. Is it feasible for a counter-terror team to operate with only 3 folks?

    The originals were pretty fair, but too much of a good thing wears it out. The very first one was probably the best - everything else was just "sequel to".

    I keep forgetting, are they going to release this for regular Xbox?

    Maybe that doesn't matter. I'm planning on getting myself an Xbox 360 for Christmas.

    Dieter Weber was my favorite as a sniper...

    You can't be Ding as an "Assaulter"...

    And it ought to stay that way. When you allow for only three characters, the replay value plummets drastically. I bet I took 6 different teams through the first R6 game, made for some fond memories.

    Not that I'm aware of... shame, too, because Rainbow 6 is one of my favorite books.

    Depends on the situation and the objectives. For SF-Op, sure... but its rather unlikely when it comes to a "Blue" police like hostage situations and the rescue of civilians in general. Its basically all about preparation and what you want to achive.

    I would however question the large number if women in this elite outfit. Rear area specialists is one thing, but in the operator role?
