If some some players haven't buy and play it or rent and play it either so get it because this games is great and fun. So free time is good place to get now. Recommend this games. :)

I just can't wait for Rainbow Six: Patriots. Ubisoft said they will release it once they know it is complete and ready before release. Ubisoft want take their time in developing of new RS series. I will get RS: Patriots for Xbox One of course. :)

I already have this and thought it was pretty crappy in single player. In co-op it is actually good fun though. A buddy and I couch co-oped it and once you start thinking about more complicated strategies than "run in, shoot everything, try not die" it becomes a right hoot. It's also quite funny when you have a great idea for a certain room and you explain it and go over the plan then it falls totally flat on it's face when you try to pull it off. If it works though, it's pretty sweet.

I think the in-level cutscenes don't appear in co-op. Makes the story impossible to follow.

Anyway, for free it's a good deal. But I wouldn't ever bother with the SP.

Not sure if I have enough space on my HD or time on my hands to play for more achievements. Is a fun game in co op though. Might just download it and fill up the last bit of space on my HD anyway and play it whenever. The sequel was far more fun.

This game is a LOT of fun. I recommend it, but DO NOT download the "Black" and "Red" DLC packs - even though they are free: it will glitch your ability to complete the achievement, "Special Operations!"

Play the multiplayer part of the game first, and work on that achievement. You DO NOT need to win each game-type... just play to completion! Once you get that... feel free to get those DLC packs, since it won't affect the rest of the achievements (there's not achievements for those DLC packs... just more maps and variants of maps to play on).

Enjoy the game!!! :-D

P.S. Those DLC maps are ALWAYS free, now... so you can download those LONG after this game isn't free anymore, so there's no worry about missing out on them (unless they pull ALL of the DLC down the road)!

@19 if i remember correctly its co op story, co op terrorist hunts (multiplayer teamwork again ai) and lots of online competitive multiplayer modes. This game owned my life when it was first released, one of the pioneers for fps on the 360. half the stuff this game has, COD is now catching up with. All it lacked was the graphics!

Why do people always use the "Don't complain if it's free" excuse? We have a right to complain if we actually look forward to these free games only to see that Microsoft hand out yet another really old title that's worth practically nothing in shops now anyways. If Microsoft want to compete with Sony then they really should try harder.

I remember this was a blast back when it came out... And that's just it, it was long time ago. Sure it would be nice to revisit, but it will never hold as much value or attention these days when games have evolved so much. Still for someone who just bought 360 this is perfect list of essential titles for free, as that is who program seems to be aimed at.

This games with gold is a celebration of the 360's best moments. The games being released have been considered to be some of the best the generation has to offer. Microsoft is giving everyone the chance to play the games that made this generation of consoles so successful. People are missing the point of this thing. It isn't to compete with Sony or to give you a lackluster game that's still worth 40 dollars, the whole purpose of these games are to get people to reminisce about the now old console and look forward to the next generation of gaming.

@24 it's a legitimate excuse...

Why complain when it's free? The logic of complaining over something that's free just doesn't exist...

It's like complaining when someone gives you a free chocolate bar and them moaning at them because you don't like it..

You don't be ungrateful, you deal with it.

i play BOTH systems, this is microcock shafting us when compared to PS+, i DO have a right to complain when most people own this, its free cos its old and only about 3% of gold members will get it, it doesnt cost them a damn penny!

instead of being stuck up and insulting me, tell me WHY gold is a good service, what do WE get out of it compared to PS+? NOTHING, the paid version of Sony's service is FAR better, you get AAA titles for free, not this shit thats older than mostly everything out there!

and yeah, you have to pay for PS+, but you do for gold, so dont give me that shitty excuse, MicroCock do not care about good value, only filling their pockets.

you go ahead and continue deluding yourselves that MS are good, i for one WONT be supporting the Xbone, i will continue to play the 360, but only cos it's a good console, the company that own it however are terrible.

Im sick of coming on this website to check on news about games i enjoy only to see whiney PS fanboys either talking up a shitty service like PS+ (u rent your so called free games) or just plain trolling news articles about the XBOX. You have your own website so fuck off over to that & take the rest of your PS trolling cock sucking friends with you, & let people who want to read the articles & voice thier legitimate opinions alone. Also the next gen consoles are going to be so much better when all of the PS fanboys fuck off. You say you are getting a PS4, im not stopping you, like noones sropping me getting an xbox one.

Stop your fucking bitching, & just shut the hell up.

@#38 I second #38, though I sure won't be bothered to voice it enough. He has same right to opinion as you do, so reading your comment after his is a double waste of time on something I know already. Besides if he has both PS+ and Live Gold, like me, I fail to see how he is a fan boy. Fan boys usually don't touch "that other console"... And it's only renting games if you cancel and trust me once you've tried it for few months you will never want to. Value is like nothing else out there. Not even renting games from gamefly and such equals value you get with PS+....

@#36 Look at my earlier comment and see the truth, they are not catering to current gamers (they already know they have in their pockets) this is more to push those 360 units that are leftover before Xbone comes out...

I agree that there are plenty of 12 year olds roaming this site whining about how mummy & daddy dont love them enough to hand everything to them, i will point out that if you were refering to me, dude, im 28 & have been playing in the "console wars since i was 3. Ive owned every console except the dreamcast & saturn.
Im just sick of whiney assholes carrying on about free stuff, no matter how old or new it is. In this day & age where money is god, taking shit for granted is second nature.
Its free so im not complaining.

Never played it when it first came out so will happily download it for free and do so, if I ever stop playing GTA V and get through my backlog. GfG has been good to me so far with only 2 games that I'd played properly previously. No complaints here.

@32 No, it's not a legitimate excuse. These "free" deals are exclusive to GOLD MEMBERS ONLY. For me, my gold expires in a month, if Microsoft actually announced a decent free game after then I couldn't download it without paying for Gold (as it's part of a paid subscription it's not "free"). I was also anticipating what game this could be, only to find it's a 2006 game that's cheap as dirt. I'm disappointed and so are many others.

if they werent ones that most gamers already owned, like ALL of these have been i would be happy and could underdstand it.

but they're crap, old and pretty much DEAD for the multiplayer stuff, especially Rainbow 6 Vegas...

i dont expect new releases, but something that isnt NOT over 2 years old would be nice.

It's meant to be a reward for loyalty and dedication. But the only game I have owned so far is magic. Everything else was popular and really old. So almost eveyone owns them and they are dirt cheap. Most likely never sold anymore so making them free is no loss.
I'm not complaining as much as I am Dissapointed. They give me something to get excited for then announce it's something I and many many others paid full price for years ago.
I don't think they should stop the service but they should be a little more considerate/generous. As it kinda leaves a divide load of people not getting anything new and some. Hardly fair is it. Even being free.
Besides you say dont moan about free stuff? So if I shit in a box and give it to you for your birthday you have noo right to complain?. Or give you 7 year old used toilet paper?
Or an STI. Hey it was free

I'll be one to complain about this 'Deal'. Specifically because they threw the GoD version on sale for about $5, with other Tom Clancy games, back in late July or so.

So, not even 3 months later, they're giving it away for free. Yeah, 'Free' is nice, but given it's hot on the heels of a deeply-discounted sale, it's a slap in the face. Game a lot of folks have already paid for, rather than something that hasn't been in the limelight only a short bit ago.

Not a fan of FPS but thought it's free so I'll DL & give it a look.
Graphics suck so bad I did not even press my start button after seeing the title screen animation!
I'll never play it. Thanks Micro$oft you are the best.
