Rainbow Six Extraction's tactical PvE is good, punchy fun with a squad, and has a couple of nice little twists - but that's about it.

Rainbow Six Extraction brings some great new ideas to the venerable first-person shooter as it morphs to a sci-fi co-op game, but it doesn't distinguish itself quite enough to stand out on its own merits.

Rainbow Six Extraction is a fun and unremarkable co-op shooter with some very good ooze.

An absorbing, tactical three-person co-op game that does well to expand the Rainbow Six gameplay into a more fantastical setting.

Rainbow Six Extraction is a neat standalone follow-up to Siege's Outbreak mode of 2018 – it has potential but is yet to fully realise it.

An approachable spin-off of a competitive multiplayer hit, this co-op shooter struggles to emerge from beneath its predecessor's shadow.

Though progression feels too closely tied to a mediocre challenge system, Rainbow Six Extraction offers fun incursions against a parasitic alien threat and rewards teamwork.

While it doesn’t execute fully with its foundation, it does take more risks than I expected, to the point where it’s going to be worth a look for some folks — but only just so.

It's perhaps not what Tom Clancy fans had envisioned for the series, but there's something to Rainbow Six Extraction that's definitely worth checking out. It stands apart from similar co-op shooters thanks to that tactical edge and gunplay it's inherited from Siege. That said, the repetitive nature of running missions, difficulty spikes, and overall presentation hold the game back. This is Ubisoft we're talking about, however, so Extraction will likely sprout a long tail that will continue to grow over the coming months and years.

There’s some good ideas at play here, and it’s competently put together, but so far Rainbow Six Extraction feels fairly flat. The Archaeans simply aren’t all that interesting to fight against, their designs rather bland, and their introduction sitting at odds with what the Rainbow Six and Tom Clancy franchises have been about since the late 90s. It’s an inoffensive tactical co-op that’s good for a few short and sharp missions, but is that enough? We’ll report back soon with our full review.

‎A very demanding tactical multiplayer, which takes advantage of the agents and mechanics of Rainbow Six to propose cooperative raids against archaea. At the moment, it has 4 locations (12 maps), which is a good starting point, although we are confident that its proposal will continue to grow during the coming months.‎

‎Effective in the mechanical and with enormous potential for its creators to nourish it with more content in the future, Rainbow Six Extraction is a safe bet for those who love zombies, but with a proposal that is clearly oriented towards the tactical and towards offering a more demanding experience than usual. My advice is to do a little bit of your part and don't be afraid of it, because it may be your next recurring game of the coming months.‎

As long as you know that it's dangerous to go alone, Extraction is a blast. With Ubisoft Montreal looking to add more content in the future, I'll be ready to exterminate alien parasites for a long time to come.

To be honest, Rainbow Six Extraction is a good PvE shooter that works very well when played with friends and offers great gunplay. Well, it is also true that the overall balance is not optimal and the difficulty rate is sometimes too high, but if you are a fan of Rainbow Six: Siege then you will be able to gloss over these negatives.

For my tastes, it doesn’t quite go far enough in some places, and it has lost a bit of that identity that makes Rainbow Six games special, but if you’ve got a few friends who are curious about it then you’ll have a blast jumping into it.

Rainbow Six Extraction is a fun cooperative PVE version of Rainbow Six Siege whose origins are in the Outbreak event.

Rainbow Six Extraction is a mixed bag of right and wrong. It's carried primarily from its tactical, yet intense gameplay. In concept, it strays completely away from what actually defines a Tom Clancy game.

Explosive, exhilarating and endlessly entertaining, Rainbow Six Extraction is arguably Ubisoft at their best and most confident.
