Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield is a computer game developed and published by Ubisoft and released on March 18, 2003. The Rainbow Six video game series is based on Tom Clancy's best-selling novel of the same name.

Based on the Unreal Engine 2.0, Raven Shield is a tactical shooter with realistic properties. Raven Shield moved toward mainstream first-person shooters like Counter-Strike, adapting various features absent in previous versions. These included the ability to see one's weapon while in first-person view, many new weapons and upgrades (including larger magazines and sights), and a redesigned multiplayer.

A console version (featuring the same basic game engine, models, textures, and artwork, but with significantly different game mechanics, gameplay, storyline and features), Rainbow Six 3, was developed for the Xbox, PlayStation 2 and Nintendo GameCube video game consoles. A port was also released on Mac OS X on December 19, 2003. Due to the console version's success on the Xbox and the popularity of its subscription-based online multiplayer service, Xbox Live, an Xbox-exclusive semi-sequel was released in 2004 titled Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow. The next full game in the Rainbow Six series, Rainbow Six: Lockdown, was released in 2006.

Famous quotes containing the words raven and/or rainbow:

    This whole day have I followed in the rocks,
    And you have changed and flowed from shape to shape,
    First as a raven on whose ancient wings
    Scarcely a feather lingered, then you seemed
    A weasel moving on from stone to stone....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Captain, the man of skill, the expert
    Leader, the creator of bursting color
    And rainbow sortilege, the savage weapon
    Against enemies, against the prester,
    Presto, whose whispers prickle the spirit.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
