If you want to sate your interest about Rainbow Six: The Siege, make sure to read our review! Here’s an excerpt;
One thing that remained consistent throughout the game, through no real action on the developer’s part, is that players actually worked as a team. I think this boils down to the fact that only a particular type of gamer buys Rainbow Six games. Just mentioning Rainbow Six to hardcore Call of Duty “bros” will likely cause them to roll their eyes, because it just isn’t their thing. Although my hours with the game don’t number in the hundreds yet, I didn’t encounter gaming trolls. Most players didn’t have headsets, though, which probably helped to mitigate that. Yet, those that did used it sparingly, mostly for tactics. There was the very occasional tea-bagging, but that was definitely a rare occurrence. It seems that Rainbow Six gamers are a more mature bunch, and for that I applaud you all.
