Only one day left until the release of the cooperative shooter Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction (“Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Evacuation”), and many specialized portals have already managed to pass their verdict on the new Ubisoft project.
On the review aggregator site Metacritic, Rainbow Six Extraction has collected 55 reviews: for the version for PS5 had 24 reviews, Xbox Series X and S – 20 and so on personal computer – 11. On the consoles of the previous generation, the game is not in demand among journalists.
The average rating for Rainbow Six Extraction varies from 72% (PC and PS5) to 75% (Xbox Series X and S). For comparison: Rainbow Six Siege once received criticism 73-79 points out of 100.
Reviewers liked the co-op, good weaving of horror elements, shooting feel, variety of agents and enemies, cross-platform nature of the game, and its cost at launch ($40 instead of $60).
Rainbow Six Extraction’s shortcomings include monotonous quests, cramped maps, occasionally poorly balanced quests, a weak plot, slow leveling, and the lack of friendly bots in one- or two-player modes.
In a review for 3DNews, Alexey Likhachev called Rainbow Six Extraction “a surprisingly good tactical shooter”, whose gameplay bugs are easy to fix. At the same time, the game will likely have long post-release support.
Rainbow Six Extraction will be released on PC (Uplay, Epic Games Store), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, Google Stadia and Amazon Luna. From the day of the premiere, the game is available on the Game Pass service.
