First Impressions:Started Wolfenstein This Evening

Posted by sup909 (159 posts) -

I received Wolfenstein this evening from my Goozex cue. To be honest I was not looking for another first person shooter to show up at my door. If anything I was eagerly awaiting Prince of Persia or Batman: Arkham Asylum. In anycase this is what showed up. When I originally read about it, it on received mediocre reviews. First impressions so far though are that this is a pretty solid FPS. Controls are well done (same as MW2 btw), the veil mechanic is fun. There is even a decent  scavenger system for intel for back story a la Bioshock. I found myself surprisingly sinking a couple of hours into it this evening. I am curious though if anyone is actually still playing multi-player on this thing.

Eh, Multiplayer's a bit gash compared to the competition in all honesty, i don't think anyone really plays it.
 
Singleplayer game on the other hand, i really liked it, i even wrote a review of it if you wanna check it out, i really thought it was a solid game by Raven, sadly no marketing money from Activision and no real steam to push it except for it's name, the game wasn't the biggest hit. But i really liked it, so that's all i need to say about it really.

I agree with your sentiment. I will see how the game progresses as I get further into it. As you stated I fear the online is pretty much all but gone at this point.
