I still don't understand why they are not wearing helmets... and is that cornrows?? I am a huge RVS/Swat4 player, and I have to admit, Lockdown does look a little cheese... but the graphics look decent, besides the fact that there is no AA and some of the textures are awful (xmasmile)

Screenshot 1
In this area team Rainbow is outside of a meat processing facility. They are about to breach into the warehouse and head into the Paris tunnels. With graphic overhauls, Lockdown PC has realistic environments and lighting. Notice shadows being cast off the objects and the characters.

Screenshot 2
In this image, Rainbow is tactically moving down stairs in the Paris subway. Notice how the characters are moving and working as a team. With Lockdown PC’s improved AI, team Rainbow will now be much more of an asset to the player by not completing objectives individually but as a unit.

Screenshot 3
In this image, team Rainbow is about to breach down a door and clear the room of patrolling enemies. Notice how the team is strategically stacked on the door and how they appear ready to burst in and complete their objective. Also, with Lockdown PC the character models have been greatly updated to meet the expectations of the PC consumer.

Screenshot 4
This is Rainbow Six tension at its best! The player and the team are about to ambush unsuspecting terrorists with tactics, speed, and precision. Also notice the colors on the characters and the objects in the environment as they add to the immersive experience of Rainbow Six Lockdown.

For the love of god, Im still praying that these are console screens, xbox360 maybe?

If Ubi have changed the whole presentation of the R6 series on pc, there will be many many unhappy fans, me included (mikec)

If Ubi screw us pc players with this and GR3 I will not be buying either. RVS was great, my favorite game, but compared to the Xbox support, us pc gamers got screwed, lets hope they have learned their leason.

No helmets? They must be confident that the bad guys wonŽt aim high or is it set in the future and maybe they have some type of shield? lol If this is real, it seems like Ravenshield was the last "realistic" R6. IŽll give it a try though, because I always liked R6 games.

I'm surprised no one here has played the console version of Lockdown...

Well I might as well say it now. If you think Lockdown is going to be a lot like the older games you are in for a big disappointment...

What do you think of Lockdown on the console? Does it really suck? I like tactical games, and I love RVS/Swat4... hopefully they didn't change it too much :( The guys without helmets is a little disappointing.

Lockdown's gameplay is closer to HL2 than the previous RS games. In other words: your always running and shooting something with no need for tactics to get the game done. That's really the best I can describe it.

Here's the thing though people, these are just my thoughts on the console version. Maybe, just maybe the game will get changed enough for the PC to make it like we want (hint: mods). Besides, some of you might like the game in the end and you will never know until you try it. The one thing I don't need/want is somebody buying the game, resurrecting this thread, and then telling me how wrong I was. (mikec)

Anyone with half a brain wouldnt do that to you, consoles will always (imo) be limited due to the controller, I just hope that the arcade feel that is on the console isnt brought over to the pc.

The two different platfoms shouldnt really be conpared, but as Ubi has already shafted us R6 pc users, this is what we are affraid of, that they will turn the pc version into an arcade shooter, which it shouldnt be.

On a side note though, GRAW is looking good, and they finally are bringing in FP weapon view (xmasgrin)

All I've got to say about this is **** console influence spilling over into such a great franchise.

"that they will turn the pc version into an arcade shooter""this is **** console influence spilling over into such a great franchise"


I see a systematic movement by game developers alround that IS turning our more serious focus feel shooters, into kiddie quakers. And yeah GR now has a 1st pov weap view. But look at the candy blue colored HUD icons. WTF is up with that? Imho RB6RS will prolly be the last great Rainbow 6 game.

Just saw the trailer... I'm not sure what to make of it yet... it still looks quite acradey... but its hard to tell when you pick and choose scenes. I would like to see a match played out... from beginning to end.

It looks unrealistic. I think that's all I need to say about it to convey my incredible disappointment in how this looks.

Its not a bad game, I own it on the Xbox but its not the rainbow six that I love. I still play Raven Shield and even some Rogue Spear, I loved how they balanced realism in the game. The recent Console version just make it a FPS, I mean wtf is with giving life bars now...

Console players didn't like the game either, it got a price drop just weeks after it was released. The game got pretty bad reviews, so it's not surprising that most people stuck with RS3 or Black Arrow.

But I'm not sure how arcade-type gameplay is tied to the game being on a console...the PC is home to most of the major arcade-type shooters out there like Serious Sam, Painkiller, and Doom 3, after all.

Arcade type shooter/console is referring to this franchise, it never was an arcade shooter, but it looks like that this is the way it has gone. To me it looks like I wont even bother with this one. For me RavenShield is the best of the series, and RogueSpear before that (which was my first ever MP game), my hopes now lie in GR:AW as we can see, R6:Lockdown is a console port, just look at the player interface!!

Exactly. Sure the PC has arcade games, but RavenShield was the ultimate in realistic shooters in its prime. Now its been degraded to nothing more than doom3. At least so it appears.

And we have the console to blame for all of this. They tried to make the game easier to play, and tried to focus on a more "casual" crowd. I am glad to see it fail on the console though, maybe the next game they will make it more true to the franchise.
