Hi,

I just finished up "Brothers in Arms" and "Full Sprectrum Warrior" on the
XBox. Enjoyed both games immensly.

Thinking about picking up "Call of Duty" for the XBox, even though I played
it through already on PC.

Main reason for looking at the console version is simply just to be able to
play it with the convienence of a console, along with HDTV and surround
sound. Reviews for the console (XBox) version don't specifically say if
its the identical game as the PC version. (I'm assuming it is.) Console
version also seems to rate lower in the reviews than the PC version.
Anyway, just wondering if it's worth picking up the console version (for
reasons stated above) if have already played through, and enjoyed immensly,
the PC version.

Thanks!
-Eric

If you played it already you have pretty much seen/played the console
version...not much reason or incentive to playing it again in this
version. If you find it cheap somewhere it might be worth picking up if
you really enjoyed it that much.

The console version is a totally different story/Playthru that the PC
version
and the Add-on Pack. Not as good as the Pc version, but would you
expect that.

The console version is a disgrace. Avoid it.

Thanks..

(This is a reply to all who posted.)

Its looks like the general consensus is that it has different gameplay, but
lacks the PC quality.

I'll just wait for it to hit $20 or less, new or used.

Cheers,
