It annoys me that developers can produce a game slap some multiplayter functionality into it and call it value for money.Online gaming is good n all but a game should have a FULL single player game also.This game should have been marketed purely as a multiplayer game. The single player mode is far too short , too easy , flimsy storyline, and rarely captures the feel of wolf3d.

This is an absolutly great game if you liked the first wolfenstien you love this, but if you where lokking for somthing historically correct like commandos then go by commandos 2, if you are looking for a fast action packed fps that looks and play great, then by this, if you have a decent modem or just a 556k one you will love the seperate multiplayer game, it rocks, because of the compiler way it works there will soon be a lot of mods and extra modes of play for this beast of a game, I reckon it will defintly by the next biggest net played game move over half life, your old and crap let Wolfenstien impress you with its kaw dropping graphics and it s intense gamplay. after watdching the film Predator where arnie kicks down a door and shoots two guys, ive always wanted to do that, now you can, kick down doors break open secret passages, its like an indiana jones film. you move a candle holder on some wall and a secret pasage opens its great! But the best thing of all is the ai its so bloody good the hide the shout for help and they dont go "oh look at that there was a loud gunshot, nah it was nothin" they go shnell shnell the amercan sound the alarm, a really fun thing to do is queitly sneak up on them and you get about 10 minutws of speech about how that soldier hates doing his laundry! this game has just got all the little things you could ever want, and the modding community on the web are already looking at rtcw as the biggest thing yet. so go buy this game now you heard me but it now!

I remember playing Wolfenstein 3D about 10 years ago and loving it. I kind of drifted away from computer games for a long time but when I saw RtCW being advertised it didn't take long to decide to give it a whirl and I am SO GLAD I DID! This game is fantastic. I have had my entire extended family sitting round the computer in a state of utter suspense at the fate of the brave Bill Blascowicz and the Nazi scumbags he sends to Valhalla with amazing regularity. This game is worth it just for the sniper rifles. The satisfaction of a successful head shot from a mile away is enormous. Fight your way through normal soldiers, zombies, chain gun wielding "venom soldiers", paratroopers, large breasted and leather catsuited paranormal troops and hideous genetic mutations and have enprmous fun while doing so. This game is the best thing ever!

Wow! This game is so much fun... IN places, the zombie fighting is pretty annoying and sometimes I just can't be bothered. The best levels are the ones without any paranormal forces or evil flesh eating... things in them at all... With the exception of the last level. The game is just a whole lot of violent, un PC fun and is defeinitely worth your money, even if it is a little on the short side compared with classics such as Half Life. Be warned that the multiplayer will not work with 56k modem, however, but it is probably very good with something that can run it... (i wouldn't know)
And by the way, sorry Mat from England, but obviously your PC has some big problem with it. I can run RTCW fine on my Athlon 1.1Ghz 256Mb RAM and Geforce 2. Maybe you should defrag your drive or summat...

I have played this game on a Celeron 644 with 384 megs of ram, a Tornado TNT2 with 32megs of ram and it runs well at 1152x864. I have a P3 800 with 512megs of ram and a Gforce 2 MX 400 with 64megs of ram. I can run it at my monitors max res or 1280x1024 with everything at max including the compressed hi-def textures. The graphics make the Quake 2 and HalfLife; including Blue Shift look very blured and dated.
Fast shooting action with the familiar controll methods of other Shooters. The Elite guards are well modeled!
It can get a bit stupid when a hi-powered gun can't kill a guard at close range with 32 shots!
Apart from that It Is very adictive.
Top game. Not as average as the Press say it is.

When I was a lad and old shep was a co-presenter on "Blue Peter" all we got was rubbery spectrums and Jet Set Willy. Thankfully things have changed.
We are often bombarded with WOW factor graphics and YAWN factor gameplay!
Refreshing then, to find that Wolfenstein's bite is bigger than it's bark. An eerie storyline and accompanying graphics coupled with superb online multiplayer options make this hairy package more than just a fickle offering. I will still be playing this come the next full moon! !

Even though I've only had it for a day...I'm hooked. Realistic and stylish graphics. Also great gameplay, with an emphasis on tactics and stelth rather than blasting away. You have to be clever and plan your moves wisely, otherwise you are simply gonna die in a hail of bullets. Multiplayer is also fanastic, easy to use and varied, with different classes of soliders, from the bog-standard grunt to engineers and medics, all of which have to used to the best advantage to work in your team. I'm going to have little sleep over the next few months I can tell you!

The best game this year, with the possible exception of Max Payne. The graphics are amazing, and the tension goes through the roof. The only problems i've found are that the undead are a bit too hard to kill for the novice. For the experienced gamer, the plot is second only to half-life (but isn't everything), and the graphics surpass Sierra's work of art. If you don't own it, go out and buy it... Now. You don't need lunch this month, so put the money to a better use.

I've allways prefered to play multiplayer finding the Single player elements of these games lacking in the HUMAN factor. This made them predictable and basically boring.
This is the first game that had me totally captivated in the single player missions. If you've never played a FPS game start here and don't look back.
Brilliant.

IF you have the specification, Wolfenstein is one of the most beautiful PC games to grace a monitor. More importantly, the beauty adds to the "immersive" gaming experience. The nazis are cunning, the undead are scary, and the scenery is spectacular. To cap it all, the AI is better than many other games (but still not as good as a real human opponent). Buy this asap!
