    Looked about a bit but can't get answers to these questions:

    What's the difference? Which is better? Is BRO an expansion?

    Many thanks. I'm thinking about buying CoD2 tomorrow so just wanted to make sure I got the right one. Getting bored of DoD:S now.

    I think Big Red One is for the PS2 and Xbox i think? The normal one is only for 360 and PC AFAIK

    Aaaah....now why can't someone just simply put that? Why change the name for the PS2/Xbox version? :rolleyes: Thanks :) :o

    I probably want it on my PC so CoD2 it is then. Not buying any more PS2 games till PS3 :D.

    I believe it's a totally different game, CoD2: Big Red One is not CoD2. CoD2 is PC+360, BRO Xbox/PS2.

    It would have been Sword or Gold beach if you were British.

    If you were American it would have been Utah.

    If you were Canadian it would have been Juno.

    :)

    Hooray for MOHAA history briefings. :D

    am pretty certain it was ohmaha, as when the mission came up I though 'oh mohaa again' It started the same, i.e. you got off the boat but unlike mohaa where it was a mad struggle to get through the beach, in this one you kinda scuttled off to nearby cliffs with no hassle then climbed the rope. Am sure it was part of the american campaign? I maybe wrong it was about 6 weeks ago I played it.

    Possibly Pointe du Hoc? To the right of the beach was a cliff scaled by the Rangers. Books > Games. :D
