OK, I played and beat Raven Shield on the PC, and I have just been jonesing for more FPS lately.

So, tell me-how similar is R63 to the PC iteration in terms of missions-
and is the Black Arrow expansion worth it in and of itself.

Thanks.[/u]

They're really not even close to being the same games on the Xbox as they were on the PC. They're more streamlined experiences. There's usually only one path through the levels, with only tiny portions where two paths are available.

There is no planning stage. None. Nada. If you were like me and despised that particular portion of the game and got bored with it quickly, it's quite an improvement.

The game is a much more "actiony" experience. It's still tactical, and you still have to play smartly to avoid getting killed, but otherwise it's a very different game.

Me? I prefer the xbox versions. I like the slightly faster pacing and I enjoyed going directly from one level to the next without the planning stage breaking up the action.

I think both Rainbow Six 3 and RS3:Black Arrow are great fun to play and I don't plan on getting rid of either one. My friends and I still get together with 4 TV's and our systems to play 4 player system link games on occasion. It's a lot of fun.

you only have 3 other guys on your team.  if one dies during a mission, he's back to full health for the next one.  I thought that was kinda weird.  

fun games on xbox live tho.  black arrow is just an expansion pack really.  same exact engine, I think they added one new sniper rifle.  they did add some fun new screams for when you hit a terrorist with willie pete.
