Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege PC Review

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege PC Review

Hi guys! Today I will talk about Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. As always, the review will have four parts, firstly I will talk about the storyline, then about the gameplay, afterward, I will talk about the visuals and finally, I will tell you my personal thoughts and give you a rating for the game from 0-10 (10 being the best).

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege PC Review


This game doesn’t have a storyline. The characters that you can choose to play with have stories but there isn’t a story mode so I can’t say anything more in this section.


Even though Rainbow Six Siege has been out for almost 4 years now, I only recently bought it and started playing it.

The first time I played Rainbow Six Siege was a few months ago on a free weekend but it didn’t hook me then.

The reason it didn’t hook me is the same as the reason why most players give up on Rainbow Six Siege, and that is its steep learning curve.

Rainbow Six Siege has many maps and those maps consist of buildings with 3 floors at least.

Learning how to move around these maps, what spots should you cover, what spots will the enemy come from and the abilities of the enemies and your team will take hundreds (literally hundreds) of hours and can be discouraging for new players.

I remember when I first played on the free weekend I died again and again before I understood what had happened or where did the enemy hit me from. Now you may ask, why did I return and even bought the game.

The reason is the game’s price.

Ubisoft puts the game on sale very often and the price for the standard game is 8 euros, and I have to say, their plan worked on me.

8 euro for a triple-A game is a good price to give this game a second chance.

I saw some videos for beginners on Rainbow Six Siege and what they have to do to learn the ropes and the first thing I did is to do all the Situations (Sieges’ tutorials) at realistic difficulty and get at least 2 of the 3 stars in each situation (the stars signify objectives and if you complete them you get a star).

This took me some hours but after I finished them, I became familiar with a lot of the game’s maps and that helped a lot on my next step which was PVP in Newcomer mode.

Newcomer mode is PvP for beginners in the game and it has a roster of 3 maps, and it gives you a good taste of what to expect in PvP.

After I played for a few hours in newcomer mode I started playing in casual mode where you can play in 14 different maps as of the time I write this article.

I have to say, I’ve learned to enjoy this game through this process because now I know what is going on and why I died when I die.

I recommend to the new players to do the same process I did to be able to enjoy the game. I am nowhere near as used to the maps as I would like to be, as I said it will take hundreds of hours of gameplay to learn everything about the different maps, but I know enough to play in them and not die like an idiot over and over again.

Now let’s talk about the gunplay. The gunplay in Rainbow Six Siege is very good and fluid. It doesn’t feel clunky at all and it’s very enjoyable.

There are many different types of guns and each operator (the character you pick to play the game) has 2 or 3 guns available.

Each operator also has a special ability and knowing how to use it optimally can help your team win a game.

Each match consists of at least 3 rounds. The first team that wins 3 times, wins the game. In each round, the teams switch between attack and defense, so for example if your team began as the attacking team in the first round, in the second round they will become the defending team.

There is a different roster of operators for attacking and defending, meaning that you can’t pick the same operator for attack and defense.

There are different objectives in casual mode that will randomly be chosen for you to play by the game, your objectives might be to defuse a bomb, free a hostage or capture a point in the map.


The graphics of the game are top-notch and worthy of a triple-A game. There are some particle effects in the game that don’t look good, for example, fire, but generally, the game looks amazing.

It has a nice balance between good graphics and performance, meaning that the graphics are good enough but not overly good to affect performance for those that don’t have the most expensive GPUs.

There is also a lot of customization for those that like to change outfits and weapon skins for their characters, although you will probably have to spend money for customization because if you do it the free way you will grind for 30 hours for a single character outfit.

More on that later.

Final Thoughts

As I said before, the game is very good and it’s definitely worth to buy for those that like fps games.

The only negative thing I have to say is that it takes a lot, and I mean a lot of hours of grinding to buy operators.

There are those operators that come with the game when you buy it but the rest you have to buy them yourself, either with in-game currency which you get by playing the game or by buying season passes and DLCs.

Ubisoft says it takes 30 hours of gameplay to unlock a single operator without boost packs or anything else that will give you more renown (game currency) per game.

So if you just want to buy the standard game you will have to grind for hundreds of hours to unlock all operators, and don’t even think of buying anything else with renown like skins and outfits because they cost as much as an operator costs.

Now you might say this is a huge problem but consider this, the game gets continuously updates with patches, new operators and maps and the money for those things needs to come from somewhere, and since most people would prefer to pay than grind Ubisoft has a nice cash flow to keep the game afloat.

Also, everything new is available to all players so you get new maps and new operators (maps are free but you have to buy operators with in-game currency) that you can unlock without being forced to pay for them with real money.

Whether you like it or not I think this is a compromise that us players that want the game to keep getting updates and new content have to make.

Final Verdict

Stoyline: –

Gameplay: 9.0

Graphics: 9.0

General Rating: 9.0

I remember playing a game after having not played for a couple years. Played Rook to be safe and camp to scope out the meta. Placed down body armor only to have it be destroyed. Confused, thought I must’ve placed it wrong then a player asks me through mic what happened, calmly explains and said that socks. 2nd round, happens again, same player asks what happened, I realize he was destroying my stuff and for no apparent reason. Next round, shot him in the face, proceeded to earrape through mics, muted, eventually voted out to kick.
