Suddenly Wolfenstein! [Updated]

Apparently there's a new Wolfenstein coming out tomorrow and it does not bode well that there isn't a legit review to be found anywhere yet.   I'm sure the reviews are under embargo until it's out, but that usually doesn't happen unless the game is a steaming pile.  
 
I vaguely remember Return to Castle Wolfenstein as a decent-but-unmemorable shooter.  From the lack of attention this new Wolfenstein is getting I guess it's the same case. 
 
[Update] Reviews seem to be coming in now and they seem,,,pretty positive actually.  Giant Bomb actually gave it 4 out of 5 stars, so it's probably not the worst-thing-ever-put-in-a-box.  The review, while mostly positive, doesn't really say anything that inspires me to buy it.  I'm just glad they didn't do a complete disservice to the franchise.

Absolutley. I would go back and play Return to Castle Wolfenstein again today over some other games. I am really looking forward to getting my hands on the new one, but I agree it would have been nice to see some reviews up now to get an idea about how the critics are feeling about the game. Oh well, I was always going to pick this game up regardless.

I've been playing Wolfenstein since yesterday and it's a decent shooter. I'm a big fan of reading how Hitler was really into the occult, so stuff like this intrigues me. That's about the only reason I'm still playing it.

@MB: So your implying the game isn't that great but the concept of the story is enough to keep you going? That does little to inspire confidence in the game. Still its going to be hard for me to say no to a new Wolfenstein. I would have to straight up tank pretty hard for me not to get it.
