I was so eager to see the way they handled the twist of germans having won. I was blown away to see the game is 4 discs thinking it was going to be epic.After enduring the 6gb required download I sat down eager to get my mind blown,after all its a Bethesda game. While it was a bit entertaining it did end up being a let down. The game ended up being half game half cut scenes. The levels were very linear with exploring being simple and mostly pointless as discovering secrets doesn't do anything use full and the game is too short to gain or make use of character upgrades. The worst part of the game was you never got to see what the new german controlled world looks like. I really wanted to see and explore that idea but most levels give you very little view of this new world. it was worth a rent and a night of gaming but I hope nobody wastes money buying it cuz it is way too short and no replay value. I'm really dissapointed in Bethesda,and have to ask why 4 discs? do all those cut scenes need that much disc space? To sum it up,rent this one,just be warned the game doesn't come close to realizing its potential,all it does succeed at well is making you want more,more game,more enemies,more level size and more exploration of the german world. Having come from such a reputable company that has given us great games I have to ask what happened? but,still worth checking out for a day or 2,still good enough to play thru.
First off, while everyone is praising Bethesda, and well deserved, "id" is the master at work here, somehow people are forgetting that. I have yet to play a bad id game. This game has the best graphics since RAGE on 360, I have experienced 0 glitches so no idea what people are talking about on that end. The cut scenes are not that lengthy and are quite entertaining. If someone is falling asleep through these, there are larger health issues for that person at hand.
On to the game itself, well crafted, good story not great. I haven't finished the game yet but I am on disc 3 so not far to go. The length of the campaign doesn't bother me so much as long as it is a great game which it is. My only let down is that it has no multiplayer. Oh, and please no one compare this to the used diaper of a franchise that is COD. This is a top shelf game, not fodder for 12 year old's to play 40 year old's online and rage against each other in one of the most horrid online communities of all time.
This game is very near perfect if not for the lack of an online mode. The weapons were fine and the blood and gore were great. Definitely worth a rent and I will probably buy my copy once the price comes down a little.
The original Wolfenstein circa 1992, a DOS based PC game makes this one seem even worse than it is. Slow loading, terrible graphics, and really poor control reaction make this a pretty pathetic version of a classic game. It is not even close to the very first call of duty game. It is like the designers just created this game on the old COD engine and added in the ticky tack graphics.
