One of the most exciting games of 2011 has just become available on the App Store today. The latest game in the long-running Rainbox Six tactical shooter series has had a lengthy hype campaign ramping up over the last few months, and now we've got the chance to try it out for ourselves. Shadow Vanguard was developed by Gameloft which has essentially dominated the iOS shooter genre with games like N.O.V.A. 2 and Modern Combat 2. We're looking forward to seeing what they're able to do with the Rainbow Six series.
"Shadow Vanguard" may be a pretty over-the-top name for a game that's essentially about cops, but then again "Rainbow Six" is already a pretty strange name to begin with. Goofy names aside, Gameloft has revealed some of the first ever screenshots of the game in action, and it's looking absolutely fantastic.
