Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Extraction Review
After the great success achieved by Ubisoft
after the release of Rainbow 6 siege, which was considered one of the best
tactical mission games when it was released even after many years, this success
had to be invested in releasing another title in this series.
Rainbow 6 extraction is a tactical first person
shooter game based on cooperative gameplay that allows you to form teams with 1
to 3 agents to complete the tasks required of you in each level in a purely
tactical style. Required of you without or with the least possible losses.
A meteorite crash near
These parasites are almost unknown, and here
comes your role, represented by a REACT client, to confront this threat, and
even gather information about it, know the ways of its spread, eliminate some
of its elements, and also rescue some of your colleagues or important
researchers from it and bring them to safety.
I think that the story is medium and did not
present anything new in its kind, whether about its plot or even through the
narration, as it is considered repetitive, but that does not prevent that it
formed a good framework for the events of the game.
It is reported that the story almost disappears
after the first cinematic presentation of it, and the events of the game are
completed in the form of presented information, nothing more. I think that it
would have been better to present a separate phase of the story from the online
The events of the game begin with your passing
through the phase of training, which introduces you to the various elements of
the game and the tasks required of you to pass the stages and the method of
completing each task or goal. It also introduces you to the customers that you
can use in the game and the style of play in general.
A good number of game maps
The game takes place in four main cities,
The maps are very well designed and each of
them has a special character and distinctive features that differ from the
other. The character of the game has also been given the elements of the
outbreak, whether from the nests or membranes of parasites and others very
well, which makes you harmonize in the atmosphere and events of the game story
very well since the start.
The events of the game start on the map of
A very large number of customers, but without renewal!
The game allows each member of your team to
choose his own agent to do the task, and each agent has abilities that are
different from the other customer. The number of clients is 18 clients! Which
is a very good number but if you are a Rainbow 6 siege player you will find
that all of them have appeared in the events of the series before and there are
no new agents added to the game.
Despite that, the diversity of customers is
very clear, and each of them has a role that differs significantly from the
other. For example, Agent SLEDGE is distinguished by his strength and his
hammer that makes him able to penetrate and surprise enemies, while Agent Alibi
has the ability to make a hologram of her that works to distract enemies to
give the opportunity To the rest of your team members to eliminate them or to
accomplish the tasks required, and so on, each client has capabilities and
advantages that are different from the other client, and each player in the
team must choose his client accurately to suit the tasks required and to serve
the rest of the team members.
Three is better than one!
The game allows you to form teams starting from
one to three people, but it is not recommended to play the game alone, as the
game may take on a completely different character. Which will make you lose
your customer sooner or later.
Cooperative method is the perfect solution!
The game clearly encourages you to play in a
group manner and punishes those who play randomly. You must calculate every
step you have, starting from choosing your customer or the tools that help you
during the completion of tasks to the way you play within the tasks and
implement them, finish them and exit them in a successful and cooperative
manner, because The slightest mistake may expose you and your team to severe
danger, as you may find yourself surrounded by a very large number of enemies
and the spread of the parasites’ membrane around you, which will make your
movement very slow and will make the enemies’ movement fast, which will give
them a clear advantage and will increase their number and you will find them
surrounding you from Every angle and direction, which will make your team lose
completely, or at least you will lose one of its elements, which will cost the
team and put it in an unenviable embarrassment, as the team is then forced to
return to one of the stages of the mission and rescue the customer who fell,
and one of the team members must carry the scissor agent In the rest of the
task until the exit is successful, otherwise you will not win and will not
complete your task successfully.
Also, you will not be able to play with the
customer who has fallen until after a time until it is healed or until you open
it again while playing, so you must get used to playing with more than one
customer because sooner or later you will lose your favorite customer.
Play style and progress
Three basic objectives are determined to be
done in order to be able to bypass each stage, and after achieving each goal,
you are entered into a safe room in order to obtain the various resources you
need to complete your mission. In playing to achieve the next goal, but the
difficulty will increase and thus also double your rewards and so on.
Continuously evolving parasites
The types of enemies are clearly varied,
amounting to about 13 types, and each of them has special abilities that will
make it difficult for you to play. For example, “the grunter”, which is
characterized by a very high running speed, or “the hacker”, which carries an
explosive cam on its back if it approaches you But it is also a weakness that
you can exploit if he is close to his allies, then you can blow that hump and
seriously harm your enemies.
One of the features of the game is that the
parasites that represent your enemies are almost constantly evolving. As you
rise or advance your level, you will find that your enemies will increase their
difficulty significantly. You will also notice new types of enemies that will
appear to you and will be difficult for you to overcome, which will make the
game playable for a longer period, for example when you replay a task After you
level up, you will not find it as easy as the first time, but it will become
noticeably more difficult. The process of developing Chimera parasites is
almost a process parallel to the process of developing your rank in the game.
The more powerful you are, the stronger your enemies will be.
Weapons and tools
The game contains a large group of weapons,
numbering about 65, and differs greatly from the weapons of Rainbow 6 siege,
whether in functions, accessories, or in the development processes that the
game provides to you to enable you to make it more lethal or quieter to help
you complete your missions with minimal losses And without making much of a
The game also contains 25 tools that you can
choose what to carry with you before the beginning of each stage, approximately
10 tools were present in Rainbow 6 siege and 15 other tools, including the
drones that you use to see your surroundings or to discover the environment
around you, smoke bombs or other tools manifold.
In general, the experience of weapons and
shooting is an experience that I enjoyed greatly. Shooting is characterized by
smoothness and realism, the recoil of each weapon, its damage effect and its
sound effects, all of which will provide you with a very satisfactory shooting
The game contains the so-called end-game
content, which adds excitement above the excitement to your experience of the
atmosphere of the game and is more difficult, for example, the maelstrom phase
is a more complex stage than the natural stages of the game, and requires you
to pass 9 goals instead of only 3, and each time the difficulty of the game
increases More than that, it is a very difficult stage that requires
professional players and also requires that you choose your equipment very
carefully in order to pass it, and in return you will get many rewards and
greater customization items, whether for weapons or for the appearance of your
The game allows you to repeat it an infinite
number of times with changing enemies each time and changing places and ways to
achieve your goals, which are approximately 13 goals that are chosen randomly
with the possibility of making teams consisting of 3 agents from about 18
different agents, which gives you approximately 600 different installations For
the elements of your team and the methods of completing each task based on the
capabilities of each client and employing them to serve the completion of your
All of these factors provide you with a good
gaming experience and keep you away from boredom even after a long period of
