I was excited to play this and thought "4 disks"? This is going to ROCK! Well, first disk in and was forced to download entire disk one. Went to bed and let it run after 20 minutes (20%). It takes FOREVER to load once you start playing. When you get killed, takes forever just to load up that little bit. Graphics are unimpressive and cut scenes are not only too long but really not needed (as in-depth as they are). Obviously there were no ACOGs back then thus the sights are weaker. I've noticed there are a majority of fighting (at first) from a distance and that requires you to pin a head shot. I understand the guns etc... but bring the fight closer then.
I don't know, just really not what I wanted or hoped for. I may not even finish it so I can try something else.

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.
This game frustrated me so much just trying to use the controls in the first 5 minutes. It took my well over an hour just to clear the first scene. After looking online, many others have the same experience. Then as I continued to play, I would get stuck...Over and over again, I would get stuck. Didn't make for fun gameplay. You shouldn't want to pull your hair out after playing a game in my opinion.
