Having already appeared on the PC, PlayStation, Nintendo 64, and even the Game Boy Color, the Tom Clancy-inspired series of action strategy titles debuts on the Game Boy Advance with Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear. The most significant change is the shift from a first-person perspective to a top-down overhead view. As the leader of a team of covert operatives you must engage in 15 missions, which range in scope from defusing bombs to rescuing hostages from terrorist groups. Prior to each mission you’ll be required to select four team members from a group of 24 — each with specific attributes and skills — whom you think will be best suited to the task at hand. Four soldier types are available: Demolition, Assault, Recon, and Snipers. Demolitions experts are best at using explosives. Assault specialists are more adept at combat, while Reconnaissance operatives are capable of detecting enemy units, and lastly, Snipers are able to pick off targets from afar. A team can consist of any combination of the above.
Though able to control just a single member of the team at a time (the remainder follow you around each level), you can switch between them at will, in order to best make use of their unique abilities. As in other iterations of the title, team members can be told to perform various maneuvers, from crouching to defending a particular area, to ordering hostages to follow close behind. A Lone Wolf mode pits a single operative against everything the main mode of play has to offer. Competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes are also provided, allowing up to two players to tackle the main game together, or up to four players to compete against one another in Deathmatch-style play. To make use of this feature however, each player requires a copy of the game. Five battery backup slots are provided for players to save their progress.
