Ubi Soft was showing off a pre-alpha build of Rainbow Six 3 for the Xbox at a press event yesterday, and we got a good bit of playtime with the game. Rainbow Six 3 is in development at Ubi Soft Montreal, the studio that produced Splinter Cell and is currently working on the upcoming Prince of Persia game. Ubi Soft has stressed that Rainbow Six 3 for the Xbox is not the same game as Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield, which was released earlier this year for the PC. The games share the same license, but the Xbox Rainbow Six 3 is an entirely new game that puts players in the shoes of Ding Chavez, the hero of the series. The game forgoes most of the PC game's tedious mission planning in favor of fast, accessible action that utilizes the tactical, squad-based gameplay that is the series' trademark.

We got to play two single-player maps in the Rainbow Six 3 demo. One of them was set in the prison on Alcatraz, of all places, and it had you starting out in a sewer underneath the penitentiary and working your way up into the complex itself to root out the terrorists who had overrun the island. The other map was set in a snowy Swiss village and featured more outdoor combat and a fair amount of close-quarters fighting inside some houses. The game played very well, even in its early state, and the fast-action design approach that Ubi Soft Montreal is taking with the game was evident after just a few minutes at the controls. Moving about, switching weapons, taking out terrorists, and issuing orders to your team were all easy to accomplish, despite our inexperience with the game. You'll even be able to issue a multitude of voice commands to your team with the Xbox Live headset.
