For an ios interpretation of rainbow six i was impressed, the campaign has the feel of earlier rainbow six games but with a hint of vegas, the control schemes are quite good,there is a touch style control scheme where u touch the walls and cover u want ur team mates to stack on which works quite well or the more console styled scheme which gives u on screen buttons to issue orders u simply point at the cover and hit the stack button, the multiplayer death match is really good for ios and has the usual unlocks and xp,however the controls in terms of movement and look are locked as the game comes,this is frustrating as the kneel button is directly below the Movement analog stick which i am always hitting by accident, if only i could move the controls to where i want them like nova 2 would elevate this problem!!!also the co-op works well but as a fan of co-op on vegas and the use of voice through a headset, i was disappointed to find out theres no way of talking to my co-op buddy, this really really takes away from the co-op experience that i luv so much,i don't understand why a game on a device like ipad 2 that has a built in microphone doesn't utilise this feature for a tactical shooter game????? But on the whole a thoroughly enjoyable game with some good uses of ios touch display and an all round great package for the limited price of 69p !!!!!!!

And I didn't think it could get any better!

Wow! First "9mm" and now this, both released on the same day! Is it my Birthday already? This was my favourite game on the iPhone and have patiently been waiting for it's release on the iPad. I can safely say it has been well worth the wait.

This is a more strategic slower paced shooter compared to 9mm, allowing u to choose which way to approach the terrorists a lot of the time, and how to use your team. The iPad version has extra control of your team so u can send them to one door and get them to throw a flash bang in while u come in through another door.

Of course the graphics are much improved for the iPad 2- the cows on mission 2 actually look like cows now instead of the simplistic monstrosity's they were on the iPhone, and textures are vey sharp for the most part. Sound and music is equally superb.

This has gyroscope tilt sensor control option too, so u can tilt your device to look around (the best way to play any FPS).

Do yourself a favour, on level 2, equip the red dot sight to your rifle- makes it a lot easier and quicker to get head shots when looking down your sight, and remember, if it won't let u get a head shot, you're not close enough.

This is my favourite game ever, and Gameloft are God!

The best gameloft game yet.

Having played all of gameloft's shooters both on iPad and iPhone, they are all brilliant. This game has brilliant graphics and a well thought out and rewarding upgrade system.

All levels of the single player are well planned out with plenty of breaches, one of the defining traits of the Rainbow Six series.

The multiplayer can be a little stale and lacks defined objectives. I feel that with updates and effort this could easily be fixed. As a side note if any member of the development team is reading it, fix the spawn system. It is not uncommon for people of the other team to spawn onto of you.

However this game is plagued with some issues, the biggest of which is that the iPad version is incompatible with the iPod one in terms of multiplayer. As this is not an issue with similar games such as Dungeon Hunter 2, this surprised me and as I played the entire thing coop, forced me to buy both versions. Gameloft live is also an issue often going unresponsive and crashing or telling me I have no Internet connection.

All in all, a great game that could be flawless with updates. A detonate buy but be warned, if you want to play coop, which I advise, buy the iPod version regardless of your platform.
