Download Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Vegas for free if you’re an Xbox Live Gold member

Games with Gold Rainbow Six Vegas

We’ve been covering Games with Gold from Xbox Live since it started earlier this summer. Aren’t familiar with the program? For the remainder of the year, Microsoft is giving Xbox Live Gold members two free games per month. Usually the titles available are a little older, but still great. We’ve seen fun games like Fable III, Assassin’s Creed II, and more over the last few months. Today you can now download Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Vegas for your Xbox 360.

Rainbow Six: Vegas came out way back in 2006, about a year after the Xbox 360 came out. It’s the fourth game in the Rainbow Six series and worth playing seven years later in 2013. On Metacritic it averages 88 out of 100 for the Xbox 360 version.

Fancy third-person shooters and have Xbox Live Gold? Head to the Xbox Marketplace and get your download on, which clocks in at 6.60 GB.

Can you download, install, and run games off a USB drive? Otherwise, us Black Friday folks that got the 4 gig Kinect Bundle a couple years back are screwed.

Yep you can. I just completed the first level of this game running it off a pretty slow 16gb USB drive (xbox warned me it would work but didn't meet the recommended specifications so might be laggy). Ran as smooth as on a disc. Download is 6.something GB.

It seems to give that warning no matter what, I got the best 32 GB USB I could find and it said the same thing. Never had any problems of course.

You have a SanDisk? I discovered their 8 GB drives are the fast ones, but they skimped on speed for the higher capacity drives in the same line. My view of SanDisk hasn't been the same since.

I haven't tested running the games off my thumbstick (which is actually a 16GB Micro SD in a USB adapter), but what I've done is moved things that I don't yet want to delete but yet never seem to play to the thumbstick to make room for the main hard drive.

Yeah heard earlier, i don't like not installing heard it slows everything texture popping?? On way home now anyway!!

damn, its now not available outside in the US? i was available to download Assassin Creed 2 when it was free, then I cant download anymore using my Philippines IP address? boo Xbox live!

I think different games hold different regional restrictions. As an example, while I was vacationing in UK, I was able to download Dead Rising 2, but not DR2: Case Zero  from the website (Xbox Support confirmed the only reason had to be regional restriction). I was fortunate enough to have someone back home I could call, and I walked them through the process of getting Case Zero for me on my Xbox.

Nonetheless, there are proxies you might be able to try, I've heard people have been using them to great success to get things outside of their region.

I did, I played a couple of the older ones and wanted to check this one out but forgot about it.
I'm playing the free Assassins Creed II right now.

avoid this game if you care about achievements and completion ratio, you need a specific camera add on for one of the achievements.
