French iPhone blog iPhon.fr recently managed to snag a hands-on of Gameloft's upcoming Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard. Yesterday we posted the game's trailer, along with the announcement of the release date which just so happens to be next Thursday.

I would have loved to see some of the co-op in action, as the game comes packed with three player online co-op as well as ten player online multiplayer. Regardless, it's cool to see the game in action and only serves to further point out how difficult it's going to be to choose which two friends of mine I want to blast through the game in co-op mode with first.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard is a first person shooter set in the Tom Clancy universe. The Rainbow Six series of games historically have been fairly awesome and packed with tight urban squad-based combat, so I'm really hopeful for this one.

    No gyro? =(

      It isn't the most convenient thing to have in a gameplay video, but I'm sure it'll be included.

    Hmm...for some reason, I expected more a strategic shooter rather than an all out FPS. That said, it looks pretty fun. Can't wait to see the reviews (since I'll be waiting for the HD version). :-)

      Your expectation sir cant but covered on a touch screen, wait for the NGP!!!

        I dont know, I think a slower-paced, more strategic game is more at home than a fast pitched "twich gaming" shooter

    Looks great, it better support lower devices.

      It doesn't support devices below the 3GS (thankfully). You have to realise that the technology in phones is advancing rapidly, at a faster pace than most other electronics.

  • gee

    Is the gyroscope supported?

    • LBG

      Probably. All of Gameloft's recent FPSs have.

  • Truth

    Did they take out the planning phase before every stage? That was the great thing about the original series, and also the replay mode. From this video, it looks just like an on-the-fly squad-based action FPS with fixed waypoints. Also, it seems like there's only one squad. I hope I'm wrong though. The original Rainbox Six games were the best. The more recent ones have focused more on the action phase without giving you the opportunity to actually plan the siege/raid.

    Yes! Looks like it plays pretty similar to the recent console versions. Looks like they kept the cover system in tact. Can't wait to give it a try. Need a R6 fix.
