For those of us that have followed the Wolfenstein franchise since the original Castle Wolfenstein on the Apple II, this is finally a breath of fresh air.

Gone are the supernatural elements of Return to Castle Wolfenstein, having been replaced by much more believable elements of an advanced secret society, which inadvertently helps the Nazis win WWII.

You play as William Blazkowicz, a gritty workhorse of a soldier, who finds himself in a mental institution years after the end of the war. The war still fresh in your mind, you set about to make it right again.

The journey takes you through quite a variety of fantastic locations (including a German moon base!), which helps keep the game play varied, while still consistent. Weapons and modifications found along the journey help you gain more power, and are presented in such a way that you don't get too confused with all the additional control options.

And one important decision that you make in the middle of the game has consequences through the rest of the game. The character development is remarkable, and the story line will keep you engaged until the very end.

I would have given this game a full-blown 10 rating, except that the one annoying part of the game is that you're part of a group fighting for justice, but they have you (Blazkowicz) do absolutely ALL of the work, it seems. It gets a bit old after a while.

Definitely rent this game! And I will purchase it in a few months when it becomes more affordable. The GameFly Keep It price is actually higher than buying it at Costco right now, but I'll wait until it comes down into the bargain range. I will definitely play it again, if only to find out what happens if I make a different choice in the middle!

Yes this game is about killing Nazis over and over. But this time they went for a new approach (no more supernatural) it's all technology Nazis acquired, they have won the war and BJ is back to kick some Nazis butt! He actually has a surprisingly amount of depth to his character (through flashbacks, get to hear his thoughts and even a love interest). Yes you will be pressing a button over and over for ammo, armor, health etc and that is the only reason I knocked it down from a 9 to an 8. I's a fun shooter with a good amount of fun weapons, skill points, and you can choose what you want to do (i.e stealth or full assault). And the cover mechanics (press and hold L1 to pop up, go down, left or right is very fun and helpfull) Overall, I Highly recommend this game!
