this game is really good. in the game, the main character B.J. Blazkowicz finds a medallion that lets him go into an alternate dimension and find hidden doors, slow down time, and make shields appear around him. there are some awesome guns, including the particle cannon, which disintegrates his enemies. gameplay is very fun, story is really good, but multiplayer should've been worked on a little more. really worth renting, a great game, try it out.

I have always been a huge fan of Wolfenstein, all the way back to the original one on the floppy disks. Was very much looking forward to this game, especially since the market has been dry as far as quality FPS are concerned. Well, this game makes you wish for more.
Like everyone said, the graphics are very subpar at best for such a franchise. I was expecting no glitches, sharp, crisp shadows/buildings. These graphics are far from it. Found some graphical glitches as well. Some levels have what appears to be an open door/hallway, but you can't go through it. No idea why.
Graphics aside, my biggest gripe is how the game is laid out. You constantly have to run around through the same annoying town to get from mission to mission. Nazis get regenerated in the same areas, so it gets extremely repetitive. I'd much rather be able to teleport from one point to the other after finding all the gold, etc.. than walking from one end to the next every time.
I was really hoping this game would pick up where Return to Castle Wolfenstein left off, but this one goes into a different direction. Rent if you like FPS and want to kill some time before Batman comes out.
