While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

What do these ratings mean?

The Good: The best tactical shooter too date, decent length, excellent multiplayer, lots of cussing, lots of customization options

The Bad: Poor graphics, feels more like an expansion pack than a sequel

For some reason "expansion pack" type "sequels" is what Ubisoft keeps pumping out for it's Tom Clancy games. I recently did a review of GRAW 2 and complained about this exact same issue. Nonetheless R6V2 is a great tactical shooter and there is more good going for it than bad. Everyone's played the first game so I'll leave out what you already know.
   
        Some great new features is the new sprint. While I didn't use this much it's great for running down long hallways to get to where you need too. There are some new guns (I don't know what's new but I know there's new guns) and the multiplayer is as awesome as ever. Another new feature is the "Terrorist Hunt" mode in which you pick your level and hunt down all the terrorist either by yourself or cooperatively. The story is pretty good as well. You have to fight the Mexican terrorists from destroying and terrorizing Vegas while also hunting down a traitor among the Rainbows.

            The graphics are very disappointing. For using the Unreal 3 engine you think the graphics would blow you away but they are very weak. The game isn't much to look at, but you just play for the easy pick up and play tactical greatness. The game has a decent length (coming in at about 8 hours) and has a highly unbalanced difficulty which sucks since you'll try doing the same areas until your fingers bleed. If you liked Vegas 1 you'll love Vegas 2 but this game is only for R6 fans. If you have never played the first game (you can pick it up for $20 or so on eBay) then go ahead and pick this game up.
