This is a curiosity inquiry but has there been a full comparison of the PC to Xbox copies of the game? I know about the lower resolution, lower quality textures, etc. I'm talking about bigger stuff such as missing sections of levels and all that(of which there are quite a few).

Not sure if a detailed side-by-side comparison has ever been done, but on top of what you mentioned I can tell you that the xbox version was considerably shorter. IIRC most if not all of the levels were reduced in size; larger and/or more geometrically complex rooms being either toned down or completely removed and replaced with simplified hallways et cetera.

Everything you would expect to see missing in an Xbox (original) port, essentially. Still a pretty good port, though.

Offhand, the scene where Betruger is being escorted by 2 chaingunners in the hall below you is gone, the bridge destruction scene was changed and I think a large chunk before the Lost Soul scene was shortened. Also a lot of radio chatter removed, the scene showing Broavo Team being attacked- and the subsequent coolant rod raplecemnt- were gone...

I don't think RoE had much removed but it was a lot shorter to start with.

I don't know if there is anything out there besides articles each pointing out something that was different.

I remember that the CO-OP mode had new voice acting for some characters so it would include both players in the conversation.

would be interesting to see an in-depth comparison though =)

RoE did get health meters for all 4 bosses in the Xbox port, I know that much. But it's been so long since I've played either port, I have to go from memory.
