German versionIn the German version, all blood effects were removed and killed enemies disappear almost instantly.
NovelThere is a Rainbow Six book by Tom Clancy that tells a much more detailed version of the game's story. The game has many more missions than the novel of the same name by Tom Clancy. Red Storm decided they want to do a tactical shooter, while Tom Clancy said his next book will be about terrorism and counter-terrorist outfit. It's only natural to have them work on the same backgrounds.
The book only has about about half-dozen missions undertaken (the bank, the "schloss", Europark, military base, Australia, and Brazil) by Team Rainbow. The game has much more than that, along with some very different plots.
SloganRainbow Six is "Play as if 5.7 billion lives depended on it."
