Editor's note, May 4, 2020: As Rainbow Six Siege has changed significantly since its original release, we have produced a new review to reflect the current state of Siege. We have left the original review in its entirety below.
The average Rainbow Six Siege multiplayer match contains a surprisingly small amount of shooting. Gunplay is, of course, still central to the Siege experience, but there's so much more to it. You'll spend just as much time strategizing with your teammates, carefully laying traps, reinforcing destructible walls, and feeling your heart race as the dull, distant rumble of your enemies' breach charges suddenly gives way to intense and immediate chaos. And that's just on defense.
