Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege
Top Critic Average
It's one of those games that plays on my mind as soon as I step away from it. Thinking up new tactics, imagining potential scenarios. I'm not going to lie I even dreamt about Rainbow Six Siege last night, such is its hold on me right now. From a purely multiplayer point of view there's so much to love here, aided by impeccable level design and exquisite, meaty gunplay that makes it truly difficult to put down. To my mind Rainbow Six Siege is hands down the best multiplayer shooter of 2015. Nothing else comes close.
Rainbow Six Siege is a pretty dopey military FPS at first glance, but insists players learn to work together with minimal error. Further, it invites a maddening cycle of thought—it makes me think about how I'm thinking the more I play. We were constantly disrupting our own habits.
One of the best online shooters of the generation, that's set the standard for post-game support by turning a content poor launch game into one with almost infinite longevity.
Despite a few tiny blemishes on its record, Rainbow Six Siege is the most satisfying shooter experience of this generation, and few titles can boast its depth and longevity. By bucking market trends and offering a unique experience, Ubisoft has carved out a sizeable niche with a focus on methodical gameplay and teamwork over the run-and-gun style of the other big shooters.
Rainbow Six Siege is the finest shooter of the year. Its systems combine to create a game that's immediately tense and feels several steps beyond what we've come to expect from yearly Call of Duty iterations. AAA games aren't usually this bold, but in this case the gamble has paid off. Rainbow Six Siege is sublime.
The way Siege approach to assaulting and defending a building is much more interesting than any shooter we've seen before, and we can say that it definitely nails the core gameplay. However, netcode, microtransanctions and the season pass just made it not be the perfect hardcore first-person shooter.
With a combination of map design, object destruction, specific operator abilities, and an emphasis on team strategy, Rainbow Six Siege redefines the tactical shooter. Oftentimes, your team's ability to plan ahead against the opposing team is more important than your individual talent on the trigger.
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is a great shooter that surely sets itself apart from the rest of the industry thanks to its merge of co-op and competitive matchmaking.
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege delivers an absolutely amazing and satisfying experience. Because of Ubisoft Constant supporting in 3 years and giving players tons of new contents and options, very deep and tactical gameplay elements like destructible walls, and value of decisions you have to make to win, Rainbow Six Siege has become vastly popular and unbelievably addictive. Although Rainbow six siege still suffers from some technical issues and lack of new multiplayer mode, It's still one of the best multiplayer game of this generation and a must-buy for all fans of multiplayer FPS games, specially now with all improvements that the game has seen since its release.

For me, the game does all the right things. It might not be the return of Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear, and it might have more than a few bugs to iron out before it's competition ready, but it's exactly what I expected -- competitive SWAT 4 -- and Ubisoft keep saying the right things about their post-release plans. Only time will tell though. To quote the mantra of my favourite fictional FBI officer... "I want to believe."
