Game: Rainbow 6: Vegas 2 (360) Click for more info

You know, I never was a fan of these new fangled first person army games. They just seems way too uptight and pretentious for their own good: I didn't know the difference between an AK-47 or Mig-whatever. I just wanted to, you know, shoot and stuff.

Call of Duty kinda changed all that, and I've now begun to appreciate the drama and production of this genre - for me it's about watching the story unfold while figuring out the best way to get from one checkpoint to the other. In that sense it's kinda like an action puzzle game, something those of you who already play these kinda things would have already realised ages ago.

RB6V2 is a bit generic in that I can't really tell the difference between it and anything else, but that's no bad thing since it's always fun to snipe from a distance or defend your team from a flanking enemy. I think that there's some sort of tactical twist to RB6V2 in that you're supposed to direct the rest of your team, but I don't bother with that especially since I'm exclusively playing this in split screen co-op mode.

I don't think these games last that long either - something that doesn't really bother me as much as it should. Self containing episodic gaming like RB6V2 is right up my alley, during a time when I don't really get a chance to play for extended periods.
