So it will be the same levels, weapons, vehicles etc. as the XBox version but with a slight polish and longer draw distance?

Ya know, I won't judge EA games until they are finished, but I must say that I fear for the Xbox360 version of Burnout, I mean I know I probably shouldn't but I am, every EA next gen game I see looks bad to me, except those recent ones, so it may be ok........................... I hope.

This isn't a PC game, nor is it by the same team as the PC game.

I'm a huge fan of the PC game...I can't help being a total skeptic when it comes to how they're going to pull this game off in the console space. My guess--Dumb it down? If the first poster is correct, and this is basically the same game as BF2MC for Xbox/PS2--then that is exactly what we're going to find.

I'm 100% ok with that though, by all means Dice is busy supporting BF2 and developing special forces--I doubt they've the time to focus on porting it to the 360. Nevermind that anyway, just release 1.03 already!

If nothing else, this will give some people who don't own a gaming rig a chance to play a great franchise..even if it is a slightly different take on it.

This is one realm where PC's still reign supreme...times are a'changing, sure...hell give me kb/m support and maybe I won't even care.

this is lookin good it could be a must buy but i gotta see more...
Commented on 2005-10-03 16:15:23
This game needs:

All of BF2's commander/squad features.
Scalable maps, 16/32/64p versions preferably.
Three armies, the same kits as the PC version.
Unlocks (but god damnit, make them sensible this time).

Last but not least:

Strike at Karkand.
Come on now..what would bf2 be without urban combat at it's finest :)

Dude, I totally agree.
It's wierd, Burnout3 and 4 are two of the best looking games on the Xbox, but the way things are looking with EA, that won't be the case for the 360 Burnout.
It will be a different development team though I'm sure, so maybe just maybe we'll be in luck with that game.

EA does not own Burnout, Crintron does, EA just publishes, if you look at the game when it boots up Burnout is porperty of the development group, so its up to Crintron who makes the games.. and for now its always been them...

and as for BF, it better be like the pc version in order to be good, cause the xbox demo of MC SUX

Damn, they should have just port the awesome PC-version. :( Also not too hot looking, but there should be quite some time till release ?
Commented on 2005-10-03 17:44:48
Tranz, you're wrong. EA own Criterion, they BOUGHT Criterion, so they decide what happens to Burnout aswell as every other game Criterion is developing or will develop.

If they want Criterion to make Burnout: The Crazy Frog Edition that's what we'll get.

Oh and in that case we may also need to KILL OURSELVES.

PC Battlefield 2 looks better from what I can tell.
Commented on 2005-10-03 19:10:47
Battlefield 2 on PC looks better than this, but to be fair, i imagine this console iteration will actually be MORE FUN! and easier to pick up and play, WITHOUT THE BUGS!
Commented on 2005-10-03 19:17:47
Am I supposed be impressed by these screenshots??
Commented on 2005-10-03 19:18:13
It's funny because it looks like the hooker just bought more expensive makeup. But guess what, that doesn't had the fact she only has one boob and half an arm.

I seriously doubt that this is going to be MORE FUN than the PC version. You've got issue with the games complexity? Play something lighter, don't dumb it down! As for bugs Dice is doing quite a bit to support the PC game. The 1.03 patch should be out this week if all goes well--and will fix quite a few things--and tweak a lot of gameplay issues...issues that they've been quick to address, really--something that you most likely won't find in a console game.

They'll release a game. It won't be bug free--hell, it'll probably get patched--but it won't get the support the PC game is getting. And while fun is completely subjective, I doubt you'll be finding many BF2 players making a change to modern combat--unless they're looking for training wheels.

Ahhhhh shut up already. Because BF2 is soooooooo complicated. Get in the jeep, shoot. Get in the chopper, shoot. Get in the tank, shoot. So complexe. And if your talking about giving out orders then that not complicated either. Point and click. Just like shooting. So stop with your BS please.

Wow--You think I'm over-complicating things? Way to over-simplify. I never claimed that the game was really all that complex--the dumbing it down comment was aimed at the concept that this game would somehow be easier to pick up and play. The previous poster implied the complex nature of the game, not myself...so please, calm down there.

And no, BF2 is not a run and gun, point and shoot sort of game...if you're trying to imply that piloting a heli is intuitive, than you've been playing a different game all together. This game is demanding of the player, possibly one of the most demanding FPS games to date--to imply that the game is all, "Get in jeep, shoot" and that's all there is too it..well, that's just naive.

I play this game daily, I'm a big fan of the franchise..plenty of people are asking why they ported this game and not the PC version--and well, it's for people like you, who just love to over-simplify things.

No need to get offensive, it's just a game.

Looks pretty good to me and I think it looks a bit better than the PC version, seems more moody with the lighting, I like the fog ffects they have there as well.

Not very impressive.
Commented on 2005-10-03 23:13:31
Looks like an Xbox game to me...nowhere near as beautiful as the PC version. You would think they would at least put some effort into it, seeing as how its debuting on a next-gen console, as well as the current-gen.

I love BF2 on the PC, but i dont like what i have seen from Modern Combat so far.
This Version here looks at least good, but not next-gen.
