now i never played any of the other games in the franchise but i thought that this was a really good game and i really liked the detail on the characters' faces as well. now sadly i feel that there wasn't as much detail in the environment like on the signs most of the were really blurry or pixelated so i feel this game should get an eight because of the lack in detail. also i was bummed out to see that the main character didn't have feet nor did he cast a shadow i have seen this in other games but i don't know how hard it is to do movement tracking when the character is moving.

This is my Wolfenstein experience in a nutshell.
"Get in the turret!"
"Uh, where's the turret?"
later, "slide under the robot dog!"
ok, I'll just grab this health kit that's glowing and in my field of vision. NOPE. Took too long. Dead.
Ok, made it out of the intro sequence. On a beach. Not telling me what to do, guess I'll walk forward. EXPLOSION. Dead.
Guess I'll go to the right this time. Get stuck in ground, have to reload from checkpoint.
Ok, that was weird, I'll try left. Get stuck in ground AGAIN.
HOW IN THE HECK IS THIS GAME GETTING 8's AND 9's!? I'm not the best when it comes to shooters, but after more than 150 games rented from this site in the past 5 years I should absolutely be able to make it through the first 10 minutes of a game without dying every thirty seconds and being unable to progress because of a game-breaking bug. Unforgivable. Highly recommend you stay away.
But no. This game isn't fun. It's just tedious. The basic things you need to know to play (the map, how to do certain actions) aren't told to you until AFTER you're dead and have to start over. The aiming is off, the weapons select is awkward (you're being shot while trying to select a weapon. You'll be dead before you select it.) Just... Nothing about it was enjoyable, I sent it back 3 hours after I got it. Waste of a rental.
