Kids say (5):

Fans of Ubisoft's Rainbow Six games can now take on a relentless terrorist organization on their iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad. Played from a first-person perspective, you'll stealthily travel through 11 missions -- by yourself or in co-op mode with up to 3 people in local or online modes – many of which are inspired by the very first Rainbow Six game (including the infiltration of a rebel compound in Africa). Tackle these levels with your Rainbow Unit (each with their own particular skillset, such as recon or demolition) and by using upgradeable weapons and gadgets like snake cameras to spy around corners. When you're done the campaign, boot up one of five exclusive head-to-head maps for up to 10 players online. While too violent for kids and teens, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard is a well-made and fun military action experience for adult owners of Apple's portable devices.
