Once I'd adjusted the settings sufficiently enough to tighten up the gun movement, I started to properly enjoy myself. I had plenty of praise for the two main multiplayer modes, Terrorist Hunt and PvP stating that they, "are excellent, and offer a great deal of tactical depth." I went on to say that, "playing as a team is a lot of Rainbow 6 Credits fun, and while the experience can vary greatly depending on who you're grouped up with, what's clear is that when everything comes together, Rainbow Six: Siege is a really tense, thrilling and exciting first-person shooter that has a very different approach and style to most other FPS titles. It's a truly strategic game whose very well designed environments facilitate some terrific encounters, from intense firefights in close quarters to protracted games of cat-and-mouse as individuals sweep rooms looking for one another."
Rainbow Six: Siege received a generally positive reaction from critics. The PC version was the most favored, garnering a metascore of 79, while the PS4 and Xbox One versions didn't fare quite as well, scoring 73 and 74 respectively.
