My favourite comment from the RPS article...

It doesn’t exist in a vacuum, no, but there’s this kind of strange selective vacuum going on here.
Let’s evaluate:
The first Rainbow Six game had female and male operatives, female and male hostages. This trend continued in the series, through Rogue Spear and Raven Shield, Lockdown (even though we prefer to ignore that).
It changed in Vegas, to an extent: Your three-person team was all-male, except for creating a custom character as a female. The intel agent was female, and again the hostages were split between male and female.
So in conclusion, Rainbow Six has been using men and women as hostages (and operatives!) since 199-fucking-8. But again, we are all wasting our time with this stupid shit. There are legitimate areas of concern — Assassin’s Creed, for instance. But five minutes of, gosh, research would show you that this is actually one of these series that deserves praise. Does it get praise? No. One demo featuring a single hostage, and a coin toss to essentially decide gender, and this gets an article.
Does the female sniper get a mention, who saves the male operative during the game? No. Because Grayson probably didn’t see the rest of the video for the blood-red vision he suddenly had at the notion of a female hostage.
Again, it needs to be said: Rainbow Six is actually a series that has said “Your gender does not matter to us.” You can be male and have a gun to your head. You can be a female and save the goddamn day. You can roll in with a full team of men or a full team of women. It’s a series about stopping bad guys.
But instead, this nonsense, as if a 15 year streak of male hostages is going to end based on one 15 minute demo. This is uninformed, perhaps even deliberately. It neglects the awesome female sniper, forgetting to even mention her work, because the goal is to fixate on (incorrect!) negative assumptions rather than praising this series. Rainbow Six should, for all its faults, be held up as an example of where the industry should be going, a direction that Call of Duty and Battlefield have STILL failed to match. This series sees gender as no obstacle.
Again, not a vacuum, right? No. Apparently this 15 minute video is a vacuum, because he’s willing to throw the franchise’s history under the bus to make a point, but in another article he’ll jump on Assassin’s Creed poor history to prove the same point… so… what, AC gets hounded for its history, but R6′s history is wiped clean because they want their alarmist bullshit?
Kudos to Remnant for grounding things a little.

The gun play in BC2 was ahead of it's game, utterly sublime, still hasn't been matched in more recent Battlefield games. Why they chose to eschew that model is beyond me.

There's nothing quite like pulling off a head shot from a kilometer away, aiming two inches above your target.

@saxxonde I get that. But if they'd go with my idea of using maps from classic games, they could add in all sorts of nods and easter eggs. Maybe even a ghost image here and there of players long gone. I would love to trundle around the Von Braun as a surly scutter.

I think they missed a trick not using actual maps from old games like Doom, UT, Quake etc. I would have thought the devs of those games would have given their blessing. Maybe.
