REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Rainbow Six Vegas

Rainbow Six Vegas is all about steps. Some slow, some quick, but all must be learnt and understood if you're to survive the main story - and especially if you're going to manage to get past the first firefight in the near-suicidal run that is 'realistic' mode on the singleplayer campaign. But the first step is in understanding this is not a game about gung-ho behaviour. It is definitely not a game for the impatient.Well, dont we all know that?
The game style is in the same mould as Ghost Recon, with Ubisoft cutting another slice of strategic warfare, judiciously ladling in intense battles with the noticeable Hollywood style action, with all in the solid Observe, Plan and Assault system. GRAW vs RS, ill pick RS

When it comes to graphicsRS Vegas  is the most impressive looking title in the franchise to date(its XboX360 after all, hehe). The health bar is more than successfully replaced with a series of filters that manages in no uncertain terms to tell you when Logan is knocking at death's door, and it's finally great to see that at least some of the environment is more destructable than before.Creating a really solid audio experience thanks to everything from enemy chatter in the build up to Rainbow's assault, through to event-triggered music that helps develop the tension further, Rainbow Six: Vegas really did justice to my 5.1 Logitech ZX5500 speakers.Sound is awesome...period

A real challenge that balances between absorbing and frustrating players increadibly well, Rainbow Six Vegas is visceral in every sense of the word.Realism may pinch newbies, but for us veterens, its a great experience

From the four-player Co-Op that takes you through every step of the Story Mode, to the effective covering system, Vegas is a pure VAlue for mOney


Overall

A solid return to form for the franchise, and it's something that's sure to continue in future instalments of the series. The intuitive covering and tagging system working brilliantly, setting up an immediate sense of immersion greater than any previous instalment in the series.

Straight A from my personal point of view. But why A-?? well check  GR's editor'sreview
