I find the 1st game more stylish, the gameplay more fun and original. The New Order is just a bit dull, the mech action I played in the Fear games, I smashed flying drones with my crowbar in Half Life & there was a giant mech dog also in Half Life! It just shows how good Half Life was and how later games tend to rely on gimmicks rather than original gameplay.
It's not a bad game especially at the £13 I paid but not worth £20+, not to me anyway.
I've finished the game now and my views haven't changed. Appreciate that it is based in 1960 so the weapons have to be up to date but I miss the Schmeisser MP40, the Mauser rifle, the Thompson submachine gun and the German MP43/SturmGewehr-44 assault rifle from Wolfie 1 (incidentally few people realise how advanced this assault rifle was, I think it was the only assault rifle used in combat in WW2). In comparison, I found the weapons in Wolfie 3 a bit boring, I wish the game designers had used copies of real army weapons from the 1960 era.
I found the dual assault rifle & dual shotgun modes plain silly, sorry I suppose I was meant to find them fun but didn't. I find using 'real' weapons makes the game easier to connect to and therefore more enjoyable.
And please bring back the elite German female soldiers from Return to Castle Wolfenstein! They were great fun and challenging too. We have 1 female German baddie in this game, why not give her an attractive group of bodyguards?
BTW Usually a PC game gets berated for using some whacko protection system, but it's good to see that this one sensibly uses good old Steam - which most of us know and have already. Well done to Bethesda for choosing Steam.
As for its being a console game too, no worries people! It still very much feels like an upgraded yet (at heart) a traditional PC worthy FPS,. so no problems there either.
One downside is the install size. It is as gigantic as everyone has been saying at over 40gigs :-/ and ten of which must be downloaded before even playing - which is quite ridiculous. A lot of the negative criticism here is simply because the game is just not at all playable straight out of the box. It's a lengthy and patient (but not arduous nor frustrating) process to get running. Nonetheless, all is forgiven when it runs and plays so beautifully in the end.
Do buy this excellent FPS game and support the future development of more excellent games, it's the right thing to do.
Wrong. The game then turns up the heat by confronting you with a mission to rescue someone from a Nazi concentration camp. 'OK.' I thought. 'No problem', I thought. Wrong again - the developers aren't shy of attempting to portray at least some of the monstrousness of Hitler's fascism. That one level is more memorably shocking than any single player 18-rated game I can remember, simply in the way it is introduced, scripted and executed. The game is worth playing for this alone, never mind the multi-class perk system and the upgradeable weaponry, as well as the multiple routes you can find, or create, by simply blasting your way through walls or secret passages.
Overall, I'm glad I went PC for single-player multi-plats. My 270x Toxic spits it out at max on 1900x1200 and it really does look head and shoulders above anything on console at the moment. This game is great fun and I'm not even half-way through it. With the ability earn extra game-modes and alternate play-throughs, this is definitely a worthy purchase.
Boy but look at it now, Great graphics and great storyline i would recomend this for a great shootem up.
The characters are great, the script is actually quite funny and the weapons are a total hoot. One of the things I really loved is that there are no button mashing console style moves required. Just a plain old fashioned shooter. Excellent stuff.
My rig is quite old but I ran this maxed out at 60fps no problem at all on a 2560x1440 monitor. I have an i52500k @ 4.6ghz , 8GB RAM @1600mhz and a GTX 670 (2Gb) oclocked to 1275Mhz core and 3200 memory. Yes, Ultra mode was non selectable because I only have a 2GB card but the game looked totally stunning maxed out on High anyway.
I must admit the 2 Boss fights are quite annoying but if you get bored of being killed you can always enter a GodMode command into the console (press Ctrl+Alt+tilde then type " cvarAdd g_permaGodMode 1" Then after you're done use -1 to remove it afterwards)
I bought this game last week and had to download the final 10GB of the install through Steam. The 4 DVD's only hold 32GB and the total game is 42GB.
Great fun this game though. Hope there's a sequel.
