Terrorists in Vegas? Yes, here they are again in "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2." As the Game Dork, I just got my hands on a copy, so I can't tell you yet if it's any fun to once more snipe evil hordes and machine-gun them down in a reign of counterterror.
But "Vegas 2" is getting good reviews, if not as good as the first "Vegas." At gamerankings.com, which compiles and averages reviewers' thoughts, the shooter so far has earned an 84.5 out of 100 percent grade on Xbox 360. The first "Vegas" earned 89 percent for the Xbox 360.
Ign.com's reviewer, for one, says "Vegas 2" is good times, with 12 online, multiplayer maps. And if you played the first "Vegas," you know well that the game shines best when you're killing people online.
But as Ign points out, the cooperative mode makes the second gamer wait sometimes while the first gamer does other stuff. That's dumb. And the story line apparently is lacking, just like most games.
Anywho, Ubisoft's game is retailing for $60 for Xbox 360 and PS 3, and it's rated "M" for blood, intense violence and strong language.
Now enjoy these screen shots of gunshots and slots.
