    Hmmmm been messing around on RTCW, jumped straight into Live play.

    Maybe I'm missing the point of it, but it seems like Unreal wid Zee Germans. Fair enough there are some tactics and goals to acheive, but it nothing like as good as GR.

    It's odd because although it's nice to play different maps and see different characters, textures, weapons etc it still doesn't compare.

    So should I exchange it for SOF?

    Any thoughts chaps?

    Most of the members of the recon team have SOF2. And I can tell you for sure that they love it.
    We have a few little gripes with the voice channels, but the team seem to being playing well and most of us do nothing but laugh.
    The single player is no where near as good as recon, but live is top notch.

    As far as RTCW on XBL goes, there are lots of people on this fourm that think it's the dogs dangly bits, but there are some that bought it and returned is straight away.
    I still have my copy and am starting to enjoy it. It has taken me just over the month to get to know maps and objectives.

    I think the GR team will vote for SOF2 though. It's the people that play it with you that make the game.

    Be warned though both will take a while to get into but I think SOF2 is the easiest to play.
    Before you return Wolfy, come on my team when I'm online and myself and some of the other guys will show you around some levels.

    That is so true, the people i play RTCW with are some of the best people you could want to meet.
    Colesy spike Bonesy zap dan maff & lot's more we have a right laugh on wolfy & i'm sure all these people would show you around it.

    As colesy said it doe's take a while to get into with the maps ect.
    God i'm still learning a few of them even after 1400 games :blush:
    But once you do know the maps this game grabs you & does'nt let go.

    Maybe see you online? :)

    I totally agree with everything they have said Im not a fan of wolfy maybe because I dont play it that much if i spent time on it I might like It who knows but when you have GR & sof2 you tend not to turn it on as for me these game are so good there is no need for me to play this

    but at the end of the day its down to peoples own personal taste

    I suggest you hire from blockbuster or something sof2 then make your own mind up

    Give RTCW a good try I think you will enjoy it. Get on with someone from the forums and let them show you around I think you will then see what RTCW is all about.
    Personally I think all live games are great. I have all 3 and don't think there is much between them, although RTCW is my fav. Still getting used to SOF but I do enjoy it. I wish I had more time and then I may get good at one or two of them.

    Spunky,
    I'll be on at about 5-30 or 6 if you wanna been shown around a level or two. I can't show you too many as I have not learnt them all either.
    I'll set a server up and invite you (if I still have you on my list cos the xbox crashed and deleted a lot)

    Great feeling when you have the docs & your mates are trying to get you to the transmitter but you know they are waiting for ya :rolleyes:

    I was on beach yeserday & after 9.59 of a 10min game i ran passed 4 people to transmit the docs with 1sec left :eek:

    I am enjoying rtcw very much. I returned the game twice but at the moment it stays in my xbox longer than any other game.

    I've played you once you sniped me from the beach :laugh:
    Do you mean you took the game back to the shop twice?
    I did that with Recon but i only took it back once then bought it again :rolleyes:
    Glad i did as it's a very good game but it felt so slow when i went back for some practice.
    Plus it has no medic button ;)

    RTCW is a far faster game than Recon, and far less sneaky, but no less good in my opinion, although I've yet to play SOF II, just haven't got the money or time to spend on yet another Live game. Take the time to learn the maps and you'll be as into it as the rest of us.

    I had RTCW for a couple of weeks but just couldnt get into it far to arcadey and fast for my tastes, but i can see why alot on here like it.
    SOF2 though is superb fun, a lot slower paced than RTCW - i'm playing this a lot more than GR at the moment, cant wait to try out the 2 new maps tonight that have just been released.
    Spunky - sof2 is well worth a rental, get it and come and join us we'll show you the ropes and i'm sure you will love it and then rush out and buy it.
