"Raven Shield uses the Unreal engine to create some
stunningly realistic locations, drawn with rich textures, complex level
geometry, and lush lighting. The character models and animation are top-notch,
with new first-person perspective weapon graphics bringing all the different
guns to life..."
"The new planning interface is just as easy to use
as Rogue Spear's, but this time with even more helpful aids,... The whole thing
feels much less restrictive than the previous Rainbow Six games, in which you
were firmly bound to your plan without any way to adapt to changing
"One of the enduring strengths of the series is its
multiplayer support. This hasn't changed in Raven Shield, which is probably one
of the most compelling multiplayer games you'll ever play..."
"Match-up restrictions aside, Raven Shield is not only a
great multiplayer game, but a welcome next step in the Rainbow Six series for
gamers that should meet, if not exceed, many of its fans expectations."
