Jesus - bold print. You seem intent on putting me down by saying that I don't comprehend, understand....multiple times. How about just backing off a little and calming down?
"backing off a little and calming down"
Yes it takes soooooooo much effort to highlight what text you want bolded and click on the B

With ostensibly the same content as the current-generation consoles, EA and DICE have focused on improving four major areas: graphics, the immersive experience, cohesiveness, and the single-player game. The three new downloadable maps for Xbox are built into this version. On the graphics front, EA has reworked every object in the single- and multiplayer campaigns, from the characters, guns and vehicles to the structures, roads, radio towers, and bridges. Everything has more polygons and has been remapped with more detailed textures.
While the version we saw wasn't brilliant looking, we know the version we saw was far from done. Smoke and explosions were greatly improved, as are the basic graphic details from building, character, and tank definition. Battlefield 2: MC does, however, look like a high-res version of its brethren, rather than a blockbuster HD extravaganza. We'll be counting on EA to make more visual improvements between now and release.
Battlefield 2: Modern Combat is EA's way of giving the hardcore gamers a more polished, evenly balanced version of the current gen versions. For those who haven't played the versions available on Xbox or PS2, you're in for a real treat. The more difficult single-player game, better flowing interactions, and smoothed out hotspot functionality are just plain fun. For veterans of the series, we'll be interested to see who buys this version as well. I suspect most folks will want to retrain themselves in the single-player campaign for a while, earn some medals (and achievements) and then hop online and rage all night long. It may very well come to that come March 14.
Gee, a graphical update. And downloadable maps the xbox version got will be in it. Would ya look at that
Even with new missions added, the 360 version is very very similiar to the xbox and pspoo versions as far as gameplay. The 360 version has no maps that carries over from the PC version. They are NOT one in the same as CoD 2 is on 360 and pc.
To be clear, Modern Combat won't feature any completely new missions on the 360, but all of the missions from the original game will be here, and they've gotten substantial makeovers in a number of respects. Minor level elements like obstacles have been moved around, objectives have been refined, and the flow of the missions should generally feel more streamlined than they did in the first game. In fact, perfecting the single-player game has been a major goal of the designers, who've set about reworking roughly half of the game's missions almost from the ground up. In addition, all of the downloadable content for the Xbox version of Modern Combat is being similarly upgraded and will ship in the box with the 360 version.
In fact, the single-player game should have a noticeably different feel for those who played the game on the Xbox or PS2 last year. Modern Combat's popular multiplayer action will remain unchanged in basic mechanical terms on the Xbox 360 version of Live, but the specifics of those mechanics--that is, things like reload speed and movement physics--will now be mirrored in the single-player campaign, which ought to give the two modes a more unified feel.
Of course, the biggest change to Modern Combat in the move to the 360 will obviously be on the technical end. The game is getting a complete visual overhaul--which should be apparent in our new HD gameplay footage.
Speaking of making a marked improvement, Modern Combat looks like it'll be a more cohesive game on the Xbox 360 than it was on the lesser consoles.
Have you seen any mention of the pc version in relation to the 360? No
Have you seen the older consoles mentioned? Yes
Everything thats mentioned pretty much deals with a facelift of the xbox version.
It is essentially the same game with updated graphics, load times, ai and animation. The game itself will play out pretty much the same as far as maps and vehicles and weapons are concerned. I cant believe I have to repeat that for a 3rd or 4th time.
