Games similar to Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon

Well I enjoy the first Rainbow and Ghost Recon games. You know, tactical games. Never cared for Splinter Cell too much, bought it years back and played it for a little while before getting bored.

It seems Ubisoft has turned the game from a tactical shooter, into either a copy of Counter Strike (Rainbow Six 3), or COD4 (Ghost Recon Advanced Warfare).

I like Counter Strike, but thats not what those games are suppose to be.

Are there any games similar to the first Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon?

Have you played Rainbow Six Vegas 2? It's a bit glitchy but it's still fun.

you rely heavily on your teammates and it's all based around the cover system. There isn't much running and gunning like CS

Eh I don't get how you can call GRAW2 a copy of COD4 when it was released before it. While GRAW2 may not be as tactical as the previous versions, I still think it is still a pretty good game isn't as mindless as COD4.

GRAW2 is very much a tactical shooter as opposed to an ADD action FPS.

I used to be a die hard socom fan. SlantSix, the developers of Confrontation slaughtered it.

I was never able to beat the first socom. I always got stuck on the same mission everytime I tried playing.

I guess I need to really play it before passing judgement.

I'll pirate it and get back to you.

Yeah the original Ghost Recon and its expansions made for some of the best gameplay I've ever experienced. The sequels were pretty bad though. I'd put round after round into a guy and not drop him, just had a bad feel to it.

I miss Rainbow 6 on original xbox live so hard...

same with ghost recon + island thunder


I've been playing a lot of day of defeat lately, but tactical FPSes just aren't the flavor of the decade.

omg me too.

I remember right when we got cable internet over the 56k aol we had, i could finally game on xbox live and it was awesome. I can't tell if it was because i was so much younger, but those felt like the best days of gaming in my life.

that OICW looks photoshopped in. I don't have the original cover near me, but it seems shooped.
