Ubisoft’s Rainbow Unit has appeared on dozen of formats over the years, and the latest in the series has been announced for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Utilising tactical action form a first person viewpoint, it will be interesting to see how this turns out, as all action arcade style FPS games such as NOVA are one thing, but accurate, realistic gameplay that is associated with the Rainbow Six brand will be harder to accomplish on the touch screen.
From the video below, you can see that all the gadgets you would expect are there, as well as the ability to take cover and hug walls and corners. You can give team orders and the graphics look nice and smooth, although some of the characters look as if they lack detail.
The most exciting part has to be the multiplayer options. Ten player death matches and four player cooperative modes sound enticing. Let’s hope that you can go through all eleven main missions in coop mode.
The game is slated for a March 17th release, so expect a review soon after.
