Better graphics, better weaponry, same fun
While the graphics for Rogue Spear have been upgraded (you'll now see your teammate's breath on cold days), and the play system has been blessed with such improvements as sniping mode, Rogue Spear is, at the core, the same fun that Rainbow Six was. Assuming that the game comes chock full of all the pulse-pounding missions we'd expect from the sequel to such a great title, Rogue Spear looks like it will quickly become a 'must-buy.' Save up your nickels and dimes!
While you're saving, keep your eye on FiringSquad.com (motto: when we think about games, we touch ourselves). Rogue Spear is due out just one week from the writing of this preview, and you can bet your lil' combat fatigues that we'll have a full, in-depth, no-holds-barred review of it just as soon as we can stop playing long enough.
