depends on the level of intelectual involvement i want to play at. If i want to linearly blow the crap out of something and be enticed by the pretty colors and sounds (which are pretty great on FoCom) I play FoCom.
If i have an hour or three and am really looking for an escape and want to keep my mind racing worrying about all kinds of variables (since i don't use the cheats that makes the game much more interesting) Rebellion. Takes much great mental accumen.
Overall I give FoCom the edge in game interface, sound, graphics, multiplayer. Since FoCom has a story and Rebellion does not, that is one aspect that I won't mention.
I guess I kind've imagaine that Rebellion is the grand game of the galaxy and FoCom is when i click the planetary assault option. Any one want to try and hack the two together?
