Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Siege: A Video Game Review

By Dylan Katz, staff writer

Do you like intense first-person shooters with tons of strategies? Well, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Siege is for you. The game is about you playing counter-terrorists or terrorists as you defend a bomb, hostage, and secure an area. You play with five people on your team defending those objectives or eliminate the enemy team. As every round goes by, the tension grows bigger as your team may be losing and its match point and you have to clutch up a 1 v 5.

The game is adapted from a book — a thriller by Tom Clancy called Rainbow Six.

There are ways to go about the game. You could live on the edge and rush objectives, or camp in a corner waiting for the action to sprout. That’s the best part of Rainbow is that you can play however you want to if you have a good team and operators. The name of the game is to be either the best on your team with the most kills to brag that your MVP or take it slow and steady and get 1-2 kills. As a warning, you can team kill someone. This means you can shoot and kill your teammates for the round.

The game has sprouted up in popularity recently. You can see in Twitch, which is a streaming platform. It has a lot of viewers and a lot of players. As a lot of you know, Fortnite is one of the most popular games as of now, but Siege is making its way up there with new updates, more guns, and more events. 

In my opinion, Siege is a good game. If I was a professional rater, I would give it 4 stars. The game still needs to work out the mechanics like if you shoot someone in the head it would count as a body shot. It’s happened to me and it may happen to you. Be warned there are a lot of hackers on computer, and console players are not safe either. There are people who DDOS which means they lag out the server and make everyone leave the game. 

So if you’re looking for a good action game buy this one. It takes time to get used to, but the online community will help you out and give you good advice.
