On the OG Xbox it was a GREAT hardcore 'realistic' shooter. I remember getting eye strain staring at the tv for ten minutes trying to get a bead on the sniper at the other side of the map..fucking stressfull but fucking awesome.

the 2nd one was garbage. Have they even done any since? talk about dropping the ball. That Vegas one was really good and it had a lot of replay through multiplayer. Plus the 4 player co op. shit alot of games now dont even have that.

I remember playing the very first one on the PC sitting there for what seemed like hours trying to come up with the perfect plan. Even before executing the mission, after that it seems they just dumbed it down and made it easier.

It would be one thing if those games outright started to fail in sales and they had to make changes. It just seems like they evolved to be dumber and dumber to attract more of the Halo* crowd and then arcade military shooters. Now everyone is afraid of going backwards since the formula's pretty laid out to a multiplat game.
You've got 'hardcore' modes in the popular shooters, but they are all shoe horned and are after thoughts.
I really think that if they focused on the core old school values of Rainbow6/GR and released one along those lines, it would do great. Especially if they put in a solid co-op.
*Not to say Halo is a dumb game, NOT AT ALL. But it's strategy/skill doesn't translate to military shooters and visa versa.
I really think
