Review:

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six is a fantastic game of squad-level antiterrorist combat, and Prima's strategy guide is a fitting companion. This well-written book covers every aspect of gameplay, from basic tactics and premission planning to the final execution of each operation. Starting with a lengthy explanation of the game's basic movement and action controls (which are somewhat different from your typical first-person game), the book moves on to provide in-depth profiles of each Rainbow operative. You'll find out why Ding Chavez makes such a great team leader and why you should remember the name Kevin Sweeney when the need arises for a solo mission.

Each of the game's weapons, including the indispensable H&K MP5SD5, is described in detail. The various special-purpose items, such as flashbangs and the heartbeat sensor, are also described so that you don't miss a key component of your inventory when you're planning for your next mission--and planning is of paramount importance throughout this game.

The guide explains the value of training and roster selection as well as the crucial importance of mission planning and team deployment. If you can't figure out the best way to frag a room before entering or have trouble filling out your team roster with the appropriate personnel, this book can help.

Of course, the book also provides complete walk-throughs for each of the game's 16 single-player missions. Maps, advice for personnel selection, and a breakdown of the terrorist opposition accompany each walk-through. The book's strategic advice really comes in handy for a few key missions in the game (including the incredibly difficult final battle).

A section on multiplayer tactics and a chart that lists each operative's ability ratings round out this excellent strategy guide. If you plan on taking on the forces of terrorism in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six, make sure you have this guide handy throughout the campaign--your troops will thank you. --Michael Ryan
