I don't have a PC so R6:RS isn't an option but the more and more I see of this "New direction" I get less and less enthused....I mean only 3 TEAMATES!?! That's not Rainbow 6! I know they wanted to make the game more 'action" orientated for console gamers but more and more this feels like "Swat:GST"....sigh......oh well I guess close quarters combat over xbox live isn't a bad thing.

Not all Special Force teams operate in large groups. especially when you want to infiltrate a building.. you dont want lots of people going into a building when you want to be stealthy and un noticed. this game is all CQB to so you want need a big team like in Ghost Recon.

In real life m8, there is no more than 4 men/women on a team, so the xbox version will be more realistic.

thats true even with the Navy SEALS

they like to keep they're teams to around 4 or 5 people, and in rare occasions maybe 6 or 8

I hope they didnt scrap the planning phase.

Thats what made Rvs worthwhile in SP.


Since there are so few characters you should be able to plan what each individual will be doing.

If this doesnt happen I will be utterly P*ssed off.

. yes there is on one team 3-4 people but there are mutiple teams doing the same mission. the point of this is too out number the enemy and perform strategic flanking manuevers . for example u probably have a terrorist with hostage in a room with 2 doors(which is the most likely scenario) have 1 team go throught one door and the other team go in the other door. not only will u surprise the terrorist but i will most definetely complete the mission because the terrorist will not have time to shoot at both places while atleast one person will kill the terrorist and secure the hostage

I play the PC version, at any point in the game you are allowed to have up to 8 people during a mission, but no more than 4 members per team (red, green, gold). Having 7 guys follow you around however, is not fun at all. It is hard enough getting around tight spaces with 3 team members standing around.

The real meat of the game lies in its multiplayer or co-op modes though. It would be really cool if you could do a system link up and have your bud control one team and you control another. Or if you have xboxlive, you can get on there and shout commands into the communicator.

But hey...you can always rent it first...if you dont like it, then dont buy it.

Anyway, about the Navy SEALS. During a textbook combat or recon patrol, I believe the exact number they use for a squad is 7 members. I read a review of Tears of the Sun and it said something about the accuracy of the movie and how they had 7 members to a team. A combat patrol would most likely consist of a commanding officer(Lt or higher), his 2nd in command (usually a sergeant), a point man, a corpsman (medic), a radioman, a rear gunner (or as they called them in vietnam, the Tail End Charlie, responsible for covering the team's tracks), and a marksmen/sniper.

However, SEALs rarely do anti-terrorist/hostage rescue type missions(keyword is rarely, i know there are special circumstances or situations in which SEALs, Rangers, Force Recon,etc. might have to do some of those missions, after all, im sure the training is a prerequisite to becoming one of the elite). But in sensitive missions it is usually left up to SEAL Team 6, a SEAL team specially trained in CQB and counterterrorism tactics or the Delta Force. And of course if it isnt some kind of international deal, you'd have a SWAT team go in.

I dont mind the single player change of only 1 team of 4

I really dont, lets just hope the Live portion isnt Tampered with too much from the PC version though
