Rainbow Six Siege is jam-packed with action and strategy. Test your shooter skills in this well-tuned FPS.

Siege away

Teamwork, tactics, and tension are the building blocks of Rainbow Six Siege, and you’ll experience them all.

Everyone loves a good FPS game, and there are a few contenders for which is the best. One such game is Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, a tactical shooter where you and your squad need to work as a team to take down the enemy and fulfill the objective.

Like many games, there is a boat-load of microtransactions right when you launch up the game. Most of these are for weapon skins and other cosmetics. There are options for free loot, but most of the available choices must be purchased.

The fast-paced style of play may be unfamiliar when you start, but play a few rounds and you’ll get used to the controls. There are a few modes to play as well, ranging from competitive Bomb and Hostage scenarios to casual play. There are even a few PvE modes such as Situation and Terrorist Hunt.

You’ll swap game modes a few times, since the lack of maps causes games to feel repetitive. The biggest concern you’ll have, aside from the desire to buy shiny cosmetics, is the toxic community. These are players who lack basic manners. Fortunately, measures against them require only a few clicks. You can mute them to avoid their toxicity altogether.

Where can you run this program?

Rainbow Six Siege requires the 64-bit version of Windows 7 or later.

Is there a better alternative?

No. The gameplay is similar to another famous FPS, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. However, it offers a more tactical approach which players enjoy. CSGO does, however, have a more renown e-sport league.

Our take

Tom Clancy’s brilliance shines through once again, as Rainbow Six is another brilliant shooter. The only negative aspect that stands out is the toxic player-base.

Should you download it?

Yes. If you’re looking for a strategic FPS to play with friends, this is the one for you.
