Disc Only is out of stock!
|Black Arrow is the Xbox sequel to the acclaimed Rainbow Six 3. Based on an improved version of the same engine, the game features a new single player campaign, new multiplayer maps and game modes, and new Xbox Live! clan support features.
Mediterranean and Eastern European regions are the destinations in this sequel to the console's Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3. In an attempt to bring chaos to the war-torn, oil-rich regions around the Black Sea, an international group of renegade military officers plans to kidnap telemetry and rocket scientists with the intention of creating weapons of mass destruction. Team Rainbow has been assigned the responsibility of preventing this malicious group from reaching its goal.
Though Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow uses the same graphics engine as the original, it incorporates advancements such as two new multiplayer modes, Retrieval and Total Conquest, along with ten new multiplayer maps. For multiplayer gamers, Black Arrow's most obvious improvement is its support of Xbox Live's "3.0" features, which offer increased support of clans by incorporating a logo editor and statistics listings. For offline action, the game features a new split-screen mode.
Criticized by fans of the earlier game as imbalanced, the .50-caliber rifle has been replaced by a standard Dragunov sniper rifle, along with M4 carbines. Enemy artificial intelligence has been improved, designed to challenge players with enemy terrorists that will call for back up when outnumbered, or even use hostages as human shields.
A noticeable change was made to combat the unfair advantages of "lean walking". This change still allows the player to lean but is unable to move until they return to the original standing straight posture.
