So what can I say about the new Wolfenstein game? For starters it reminds me ALOT of Return to Castle Wolfenstein. This is not a good thing. While it is fun for the nostalgia factor (really has me feinding for Return), I am curious why it took 8 years to come up with this. I do like the Veil and the concept of running around the city and accepting missions but in the end this game is very linear, does not have top notch graphics, and doesn't have one ounce of a cover system (come on people, it is 2009, every FPS on the market should have some sort of cover system, heck my AI comrades use cover but I cant?).
I guess i fail to see the point of this game. It really doesn't do much to move the franchise along. I think Return is by far the superior game here, it was more fun to play (multiplayer) and for some reason had way better atmosphere (I just loved hearing the Nzi chants and songs in the background)

Also, probably due to my own stupidity, but why did i waste time on the Wolfenstein website completing missions to acquire in-game cash that I don't know how to redeem?

ok when i finally got my first power which is the veil, i move faster and swifter. but when in a gun fight im getting shoy worse than before. than the time stopping power it doesnt do a very good job. besides ww2 is getting repetitive. its great to kill nazis but not anymore. please come up with sum new material.
