    He wrote some entertaining stories, though they gradually became more like war porn than espionage and thus shite.

    Anyway, he died today aged 66.

    Hunt was good, but Rainbow Six was shit. A load of wank about assassins (rather than spies), glorifying killer spooks.

    He spawned some damn good games... Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear was a favourite of mine back in the day. May his soul stay awesome in the great beyond.
