Beyond The Veil Of The New Wolfenstein
I love weapon upgrades in first person games. I think that Medal of Honour: Airborne was very underrated, because each level had many objectives that you could tackle freely from any order and from any location. The weapons also leveled up as you got more kills that resulted in new attachments, or more ammo (along with a visibly larger weapon magazine).
Doom 3 engine? I thought this used id's Tech 5 engine?
edit- A quick Wikipedia search confirms that this is on the doom 3 engine. Kinda strange, I thought this would have used id's new engine. Also according to Wikipedia, the game takes place in 1943, so there should be room for an appearance from Hitler.
Trailer didn't really do anything for me. I also want to say I think its a curious choice to use the Doom 3 Engine in 2009. It can be done, sure, but... I duno, draws alot of skepticism out of me. Also it seemed like a lot of the gameplay was choppy in the trailer. I'm not an expert on PR or video editing, but if you're going to sell people on a Doom 3 Engine game in 2009... smooth gameplay?
I was wondering why things looked a bit stiff, but I guess since they're actually using an older engine they should get props for that. I always liked that Soul Reaver mechanic where you could switch between worlds and find things you couldn't otherwise. Stuff like that should be used MORE.
Sounds kinda like Far Cry 2, only with supernatural weirdness. I liked Far Cry 2. Except that every mission was exactly the same. I was a fan of Raven's Quake 4 so you better believe I'm gonna be playing this.
And don't rip on the Doom3 engine guys, Half Life 2 Episode 2 looked great on Source, which is even older technology, albeit updated (of course I assume this is an updated build of the Doom3 engine). The best graphics I've ever seen all have 60/60 in the corner of the screen.
I think I might get it, hell, it sure beats playing WW2 games that have been going on for longer than WW2 and keep focusing on America's last good deed as a nation.
Wouldn't expect any MP to the level of ET for those eager for that. If you want that sort of thing, get Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. Same engine, but it looks better too. Splash Damage aren't involved with this. I do wanna see what Raven do with this though, they used to be a pretty solid developer and made some of my favorite games (Jedi Outcast rocked). Maybe they've been granted enough freedom and budget to make something good again.
