The Rainbow 6 games are like that but, it's no longer a "stealth vs soldier" in multiplayer. instead, all players are soldiers. And, it's based on experience points so you have to play (solo or online) and gain experience to be granted access to better weaponry.
Rainbow 6 is a fantastic, fun game. You can do online co-op in missions or in scenarios vs a chosen number of cpu-controlled terrorists.
Before Modern Warfare 3 came out, Rainbow 6 Vegas was THE top choice for realistic multiplayer and co-op play with a soldier vs. terrorist motif. And it works completely bug-free on the PC and you can use an Xbox controller with it, which I do.
Even the storyline itself is superior to just about all other FPS's out there except for maybe MW3 (or 4 which I haven't bought and won't until they come off that 59.99 price tag)
And MW3 is collecting dust on my shelf because it is programmed NOT to work with the Xbox controller. I don't CARE if the "superior" players do it with a mouse and keyboard. I learned FPS gaming on a console and I'm not about to retrain myself. They could have taken the time to make the Xbox controller work for the game but... chose not to. Idiots.
