I used to play Rainbow Six (+ Eagle Watch), and liked the game a lot. Unfortunately my former computer didn't meet the requirements for Rouge Spear (RS), and when I got a new in april I jumped right to GR.
Is it worth (i.e. will I be disappointed) playing RS after GR, or should I just start on Raven Shield (despite the weapons view and all /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif )?
I'm still far from finished with GR, but I was just wondering. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
By the way does anybody know if it is possible to play Rainbow Six on Win XP, or will it cause to much trouble?

I still enjoy playing it. If you can put up with somewhat outdated graphics then it's definitely a great game.

there isnt a way to play the original game and eagle watch on win xp. But there was a rumor of a patch that fixes it.

In XP there is a way to set XP to run a game (any app actually) in Win 98/95 et al emulation mode - that should do it. Right-click on the shortcut or the EXE file and select the Compatibility tab. There will be a pull-down menu to select the compatibility mode...

Don't try to run away - you'll only die tired.
