Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is a different kind of shooter.

The game has been in vital in reigniting the gaming community’s passion for tactical shooters in a market that had been saturated by frantic arena shooters. Rainbow Six Siege offers a much more methodical and tactical experience that truly challenges the player’s skills.

Not as reliant on reflex, twitchy gunplay – the game truly rewards preparation and methodical movement. The game might seem a little bit too challenging at first – but the learning curve isn’t as steep as it seems.

I possess the dexterity of a toddler when it comes to fighting games, but the confidence of a hundred Jay-Z's. Absolutely love narrative-driven games - with a particular obsession with indie side scrollers and retrowave scores. Currently playing: Disco Elysium for probably 5th time in the last 6 months.
