    Yup, should be a good one, even if its still more of teh same, thats better than 95% of the games out there!

    Looking forward to the new leveling system. I like the idea of online and offline play leveling up your character. I spent alot of time beating the first game on the hardest level, and didn't recieve anything for it, while people were spending 5 minutes per round online and getting all kinds of goodies....

    That, or an East/West split, is common with many games.

    The game industry doesn't exactly have standard street dates in place for most titles, save for the big sellers like GTA, Halo, Smash Bros., etc. Essentially, the publishers ship the titles out, and if you live in one part of the country, you may see it on Tuesday while your friend on the other coast may get the same game on Wednesday.

    It's confusing, especially when they run commercials and online ad campaigns that proclaim "OUT NOW!"...when only a small percentage of the population can actually go out and purchase it at that time.

    For the record, every shop in my neck of the woods is getting Vegas tomorrow. I'm used to the "ship date + 1" equation when shopping for games.

    Got it, having problems getting used to the controls again. Loved this scheme in the past, now im used to COD4, give me a while and ill be right back into it. This one seems harder for some reason. You NEED to use tactics it seems. And my friendly AI is pathetic at best. Was it this bad the first time? Might just be used to the COD4 teammates.

    I am enjoying the tactics. So far more of the same, but thats not a bad thing!

    Think i found an achievement glitch already.

    If you start the game and have R6V1 stats saved it will give you points. I happened to have enough points to jump to specialist as a rank, well that byepassed PFC and there was an achievement for PFC, looks like this game will max out at 990 pts for me.

    How did something like that get passed the QC process>?!

    Little better textures than the first, however doesn't seem to run as smooth at all. Still looks like crap compared to COD4.

    Don't know why this one has frame issues, the first was silk!

    With the recent release of Rainbow Six Vegas 2, many gamers are discovering the wonders of the game's multiplayer. Far fewer gamers were able to score the Best Buy Gun Code that was on the sticker of the game's box at Best Buy stores. The sticker has a code on it (a button code, not a marketplace one) that unlocks a free gun in the game. The instructions for that code are as follows: Enter the follow button commands at the Main Menu of Rainbow Six Vegas 2: (Hold RB) Down, Down, Up, Up, X, B, X, B, Y, Up, Up, Y.

    The second RSV2 freebie we got wind of was a map brought to us by Comcast. This is again unlockable from within the game and visiting the marketplace is not required. To access the Comcast Bonus Maps, select Extras from the game's main menu. then select "Comcast Gift" and enter the code "Comcast Faster" when prompted to do so, and you should have access a map called "Comcast Event"

    If you enjoyed the first rainbow then you will enjoy this one. IM having a ton of fun with it playing with my old R6 friends. Fun exploring new maps and pwning terrorists again!

    The ragdoll physics are more fun this time around. A bad guy was climbing a rope the other day and i tossed a frag under him. Blew him up and over a fence! Few people saw it and were laughing pretty good.

    The new A.C.E.S. system is pretty fun, but so far im almost 1/2 done with all the stats. Should be finished with that rather quickly and then ....guess im done with that part of the game.

    Don't compare it to COD4 or you will be pretty upset. Its not nearly as deep and the gameplay is way slower (not worse just diff type of game). Graphically its not even close to COD4. But i am noticing some improvements over the 1st vegas.

    Glad to hear they are going back to other cities and such for the next rainbow. I think vegas background is all used up.

    They need to do something with current day terrorism and have the group going all across the world, like in the book. could be fun.
