You didn't have to reach the end of this Rainbow to find gold. In Rainbow Six, gold was everywhere. It was in the teeth-clenched multiplayer mode. It was in the way I controlled my breathing--as if I was really on the job in an anti-terrorism unit. It was in the darkness under the stairs and around the next corner, and in that odd protrusion up ahead. An enemy gun muzzle? A friendly elbow? Or just an odd protrusion?

As a whole, with the Gold Edition containing the strategy guide and the add-on pack, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Gold Pack Edition is a worthy investment, if you’re into this type of game. I highly suggest trying it before you buy it. You may pick it up immediately and love it, but you may find it too obfuscated to be playable. If you get into it, though, it’s truly an enjoyable experience. If only single-player was a little tighter, this would be near-perfect. As it stands, it is merely a good game.
There are two kinds of people reading this review: those that require a smack on the head, and those that don’t. Permit me to explain. Those who do not deserve a smack have played R6 before and are wondering if this bundle offers anything new. Your answer is that it contains the original game, the Eagle Watch expansion pack, and a special Prima strategy guide which covers both the game and expansion. That’s about all. So whether it’s worth getting depends on whether you’re missing a piece or whether or not you think you need some help. Your call.

An der Endung „Gold“ erkennt der Schnäppchenjäger: Holla, hier lockt ein günstiges Kombiangebot aus Originalspiel und Zusatz-CD! So ist es auch im Falle von Rainbow Six Gold-Pack von Take 2, der neben dem spannenden 3D-Action-Strategie-Mix auch das Mission-Pack Eagle Watch beinhaltet.
