For goodness sake, stop comparing this game to Call of Duty 4. Yes we all know CoD4 was amazing, but they are two different games!! Rainbow Six is a tactical shooter offering a cover system, room clearances, fast roping and the like. You have a team under your direct command, it is nothing like Call of Duty. Please people, buy this game, it is awesome, the graphics are an improvement over the first one as is the gameplay. Online is much better with less lag, I found I could connect straight away (unlike on the first one). The game is not stupidly hard either, Vegas 1 was extremely difficult in places. This game deserves 4 stars, gameplay is fantastic, graphics are above average only thing missing is a decent storyline.
