Default Games with Vista... (compatibility question)

Ok so i just got vista (yesterday) and I am still figuring it out... I am thinking about buying and installing this game called Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas, but the system requirements are below:

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas Download Minimum System Requirements
  • Supported OS:Windows XP (only)
  • Processor:P4 3Ghz or AMD equivalent
  • RAM:1024 Mb
  • Video Card:128MB, Shader Model 3 and DirectX 9.0c compatible
  • Sound CardirectX 9.0c compatible
  • DirectX VersionirectX 9.0c
  • Peripherals Supported:
    Mouse, keyboard, headsets, Xbox360 Controller, etc.
  • Multiplay:
    Local area network (LAN) and/or 128kbit Cable/DSL connection for online game
So my question is will this game work with vista? Will vista backwards compatibility with the XP games?

I just took a look at the supported games for driver version 162.22 and its on the list. So I would assume its supported. Try downloading a demo of it and see if that works.

A lot of XP games will work on Vista. The best thing you can do is to try to find others that have the game and Vista, or try it yourself.

yeah i agree with cabbspapp because i play cs from the first one to source and even though it asked me to update graphics drivers, i do it, then it works. you should give all games a try and see which one is compatible and which one isnt. although A LOT of games will run slower than usual on windows vista.
