I posted this on the RS forum and got no responses:

I have RS3 for Xbox and think its great. Does anyone know if the PC version is different enough to warrant picking it up? I know the PC has a more intricate planning aspect to it, but are the levels basically the same? Plus, the new Athena Sword is out, which I gotta try.

Any thoughts?

Well I'm pretty sure that the expansion for XBOX that is coming in august is just Athena Sword reworked for XBOX with new XBOX features thrown in.

I have the fifth freedom... So watch out here I come

RS3 on xbox is a "dumbed" down version of RvS. i hate the term "dumbed down" but that's what it is. mostly, the maps are a bit smaller and the team planning is not as comprehensive as its PC counterpart.

the team planning is a lot of the game on the pc so coming from xbox will be a bit hard. save your money and get Athena Sword for xbox when it comes out.

ALTHOUGH....the Rainbow Six 3 Gold Edition is now available for only $40. it includes both RvS and Athena Sword. just a thought.

Raven Shield is a game you can love, but hate at the same time

I've had it for a very long time now, but I haven't played it recently., mainly for the reason of monster lag, TKers, Bugs & Glitches and the slow progress of newer more effective Patches. Although when people know what they're doing in the game, RvS can be a really great game

It's a major Pro and Con game; I suggest you try the demo out first, just so that you have an Idea as to what you will be expecting, although there are tons more guns in the Retail version than the demo.

Here's a link for the Single Player or Multiplayer demo, but I prefer the Multiplayer demo http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

well, actually, Rainbow Six 3 for XBox is WAY DIFFERENT to Rainbow Six 3 (Raven Shield) on the PC

you get to choose who you take on missions, what gear you have and plan out the mission before you actually go in

on the XBox version, you cant do any of that apart from the select the gear you have

as far as whether Black Sword is the XBox version of Athena Sword is yet to be realised
