PC Accelerator, October 1998
"As you slowly become more involved in the progression of 17 increasingly difficult missions, you find yourself thinking like a real spec-ops soldier. Whether the mission requires sneaking into a jungle hacienda, assaulting a biological weapon factory, or rescuing hostages in an amusement park, you're constantly forced to adapt your strategy to the situation.
"You will also find yourself growing attached to your individual team members. Each of your operatives, be they assault, demolition, or electronics specialists, has their own skills and training levels. Keeping them alive becomes a major priority, because if they die, their replacement is often a wet-behind-the-ears recruit (or a hapless reserve)..."
"Even though you will begin to love this game, you will be frustrated with it from time to time. You will find plenty of bugs (awful clipping problems beings just one), and be prepared for your PC to crash often - It's just gonna happen. You might even curse the fact that the voice communication just doesn't work (at least we couldn't get it to work). The absence of this feature becomes painfully apparent as you frantically type warnings to your squad about flanking enemies, only to watch helplessly as your buddies are terminated one by one.
"Despite these flaws, you will find yourself coming back again and again to test your skills. So face it, Rainbow Six may not mean the end of your knuckle-dragging deathmatch days, but it will certainly change the way you think about shooters. I can't think of another game in recent years that has brought a real-world experience so frighteningly close to home."
