You have to play the single player. That is a given--great story, amazing gameplay and one of the first true great shooters for the next generation of consoles. Rainbow Six : Vegas lives up to the E3 hype and really delivers on a rewarding offline experience. You will die a lot, and you will probably curse a few choice words, but you can't stop playing because the game is so addictive. Using the new cover system, the single player actually feels like you are a spe-ops soldier riding the world of terrorist scum. With your team of two spec-ops soldiers, you will traverse through the streets of Mexico, then through Vegas, and end up in a huge dam. The graphics here are good, but not great. Sometimes they wow while othertimes they do what they are supposed to do. Overall, I do think this game looks great with great art direction and a steady framerate. Now to offline. Offline is flawed. In my opinion I think that offline could be a great time or an enfuriating one. Depending on your style of play, you will hate the respawn aspect of Rainbow or love it. I grew up on Socom, so I'm more biased towards that type of "one shot one kill" mentality. Here in Vegas, you have a health regeneration system in which you can take hits, but if you take ample cover you can regenerate you health to what it was before. It feels cheap and a bit forgiving for a shooter that counts itself on its realism, and it frustrates some when you can take a few shots at someone that won't matter ten seconds later. Overall, you can have fun with the online experience, I just don't think it's the greatest. Thats just my opinion. However, you HAVE TO PLAY THIS GAME'S SINGLE PLAYER. It is one of the best games you can have. Defenite purchase.

Imagine you and your friends and elite soldiers storming a Vegas casino to take out terrorists. Imagine ducking for cover behind a slot machine as the slot machine to your left explodes in a shower of quarters and bullets whiz by overhead. Imagine popping up and placing a well placed shot through the head of your enemy. That's what this game is all about. Yes, it is violent and not for kids or the faint of heart. But it's really fun on Xbox LIve, with your friends on your team. The gameplay is exciting and the maps are well thought out. Since getting this game, I've bought copies for my friends for Christmas because I like it so much. I highly recommend this game
