Thumbs up Rainbow Six 3: Athena Sword

Anyone here a Raven-Shield fan? Well the expansion pack for it, Athena Sword, should hit stores tommorrow... I am really looking forward to it. Definetely buying my copy tommorrow.

I've been a big Raven-Shield fan since the demo was released... I just love the stealth, and atmosphere

I already started a thread about this yesterday I knew jAkUp would be buying it

Well the reason for the delay, was to fix the netcode, or so they say, so Athena Sword, should improve on an already kickass game. I too have been a fan since the demo, and its the only MP game that Ive really placed almost every day since its release. Ive had a copy of AS on pre order since October, and have to wait until the 19th for the UK release

jAkUp, and DVS, I'll be expecting screens

Whoops, didnt see the other thread... mods feel free to close or merge this...

Well, today is the day Can't wait, although it sucks because I have to work... so I have to wait till tonight to play it... although I will be reading the manuel and stuff all throughout work

And of course I'm gonna get some screens

And overall, small bugs aside, I still think Raven Shield is one of my favorite multiplayer games of all time, if not my favorite.

I am suprised this expansion is done so well. Nice work. The only problem I see, there are 19 new maps, not 5 like advertised. The new weapons are kickin. The new game modes are excellent, especially Terrorist Hunt Adversarial. Thanks for the nice expansion.

Talking

Playd it over and hour already its ok ,new guns are fun , also game modes give some more variety to play , everything else seem same, there is major problem with sound some nasty bug, need to update Raven Shield to 1.55 first then install Athena and update it to 1.01 , to fix any sound problems , everything else is ok.

I drove to 2 EB's, both ran out. Went to 2 Babbages, they were all out. Went to a Comp-USA, and a Best-Buy, neither of them had it yet.

Why does life torment me??!!!

somebody hold me

No, the 8 missions are seperate maps from the MP maps, plus the 3 classic maps I can't remember how, but I had guessed 19 MP maps in total awhile back

Dont worry jAkUp, I have to wait for the UK release, then wait for it to be shipped to France (I like my games in english )
