Rainbow Six: Extraction in First Reviews

Today marks the launch of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Extraction. The first reviews have already appeared on the web, and they are generally positive, although the reviewers are quite far from singing praises.

Today marks the release of the co-op shooter Rainbow Six: Extraction, the next installment of the Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six series. This time the developers from Ubisoft Montreal focused on a science fiction setting - the players have to eliminate a mysterious space parasite.

First reviews of Extraction have already hit the web and they are positive in general. The average rating of critics on OpenCritic is 74/100.

Sample reviews of Rainbow Six: Extraction

  1. God is a Geek - 9/10
  2. PC Gamer - 73/100
  3. Game Informer - 7.3/10
  4. IGN - 7/10
  5. GamesRadar - 3.5/5
  6. Gamespot - 7/10
  7. Screen Rant - 3/5
  8. TheGamer - 3/5

Reviewers praise the gameplay fundamentals, but these were built much earlier for Rainbow Six: Siege. Extraction as a spin-off draws handfuls of solutions that worked well in the case of its older cousin. In the game we see 18 operators from Siege and the devs prepared a dedicated system of upgrades (another advantage often mentioned by the reviewers). On the downside is that the skills of some characters are purely situational. Some critics also dislike the uneven difficulty level, which forces constant stealth. Otherwise, the player is overwhelmed by a bunch of spawning aliens. Some reviewers also mention the repetitiveness of selected missions, but this is not a frequently pointed out flaw.

At the end of the day, although reviewers' opinions are divided, they agree on one thing - the game is worth being given a chance, especially because of its presence in Game Pass for day one, which seems like a wise move.

Rainbow Six: Extraction is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

When he was a kid, he thought he would become a rock star (and to this day still has a little hope that this will come true). He played in several bands during his high school and college years, but was not successful with any of them, however, he makes his living in part from music – unfortunately, playing pot-boiler kind of music at weddings. He is studying journalism and took his first steps in radio, but he did not stay there long, preferring to look for something else. He took on various jobs, often completely unrelated to his profession; for several years, he even was a bartender. He came Gamepressure in December 2020 and has been a loyal padawan of the Newsroom ever since, although he also worked with Friendly Fire, where he was in charge of its TikTok.
