Game Review ( Rainbow Six: Vegas - 360 )

Graphics: 4/5 The graphics of Vegas are good in some areas, not so much in others. For instance, the animations look good, the enviroments for the most part look good, but the overall graphics around those areas are just bland and uninteresting. However, when you play this game in single player, the game looks much better. It's hard to understand - maybe the graphics were downgraded in online play to prevent a lot of lag?

Sound:4.5/5 RSV has some great sound. The guns all sound different, and the frag grenades and bullets can be heard from accross the map. Although there isn't much else to be heard, it sounds great; even the little things are noticed. When you step on paper and glass, the noise is heard.

Control: 4.5/5 This game can be hard to control for beginners, but most FPS fans will learn to play this game quite quickly with little to no hassel at all. What makes Vegas so unique is that you can hide behind walls, as well as lean out to make attacks. Nice.

Fun: 4.75/5 Although the graphics, sound, and control aren't quite perfect, the game damn near is fun-wise. There are several ranks that you can get up by playing a lot of matches to unlock several things including camoflauge, armor, and guns. The maps for the most part are really fun to play, which adds to the experience. But even though the game is called Vegas, few maps are actually inside of a casino, which is kind of depressing. Either way, this game is great. Offline is decent, but online Co-Op is a blast, since you can play with 3 other friends, and the online matches are hugely entertaining. This is one of the finest FPSs you can buy, and it's right on your 360.
