Looks like a nice old skool shooter with a fun MP

Just watched the GTTV about this new Wolfy and Im pretty happy. Not OVERLY stoked, but it seems like a good ol' shooter with all the classic wolfy guns

Flamethrower, Venom Gun, MP40, Tommy Gun and the new Particle Cannon and many more

Hope they have Zombies again too.

I don't think it looks very good.  Why play this when there are games like COD4, COD5, and KZ2?

Because its Wolfenstein. World at War isnt CoD5 anyway.

Yes, it is.

Nothing impresses me about it, especially not the "modern updated" graphics. Also Raven software hasn't been decent since JK2.

I read the title as "Looks like a nice skool shooter with a fun MP." I was about to call you a sick motherfucker.

LOL.

I actually like the look of this game if it turns out to be a campy, not so serious take on supernatural Nazi lore. Wait, how can that topic even be serious? Yeah, I have some expectations on this one.

People who want 'old skool shooters' are ruining the business.

Nazi Zombies are serious business.

Doom 3 engine seriously worries me.  Every Doom 3 engine game port to 360 and PS3 has been incredibly bad.  A 6800GT gets almost double the performance in Doom 3 engine that a 360 or PS3 does.

Yeah I agree, the concept seems cool, but the fact that it's running on a last gen engine seems a little silly.

So you like, shoot people with weapons in this game? There's a skeleton that's on fire, but the fire is green and he shoots green balls of fire at you? Goodness gracious. There's a veil, when entering it things turn green and you shoot monsters. And they fleshed out the character of B.J Blaskowicz so now he's a dude who runs around and shoots other dudes. Oh man this is so exciting.

I'm sorry, I can't take the guilt, the unbearable guilt! I lied. I'm not excited at all. I apologize for having deceived you all.

This game is for people who see gameplay over graphics. Stop with the "why play this when you can play Killzone 2?" rhetorical questions. This game is for the fans of the Wolfenstein series, which don't take themselves or their stories serious and have a thing or two common with the first and third Indiana Jones movies. So why not play this game? It looks fresh, has an intersting art direction, good-enough graphics, and is an interesting take on the WWII-shooter genre. And Nazis in robot suits? Common, thats so campy its AWESOME! Plus, there is the RTWC influenced Multiplayer, which is a breath of fresh air in this market, where every shooter has the same multiplayer modes and options.

Things like this is why the game will fail:  this new gen of gamers doesn't know about the good ol' fashioned fun to be had with traditional FPS games.  =  /
