Wait there's a new Wolfenstein? I need to get out of my hole more often. Looks okay

terrible frame rate, generic FEAR 1 type enemies etc etc. Looks pretty bad IMO

Bring on RAGE!

Do people actually care for this game? Probably, but I've rarely seen anything that looks so unappealing!

What engine is this using? It looks terrible.

Hooray for steeling content from other games (assassin from FEAR2, even the claws... speechless...)! Way to go Raven.
Jeez... remember when that company was at the top with Soldier of Fortune 1 & 2?

Who doesn't steal content anymore in games?

Wolfenstein has always been a fun series no matter what it looked like. This is probably going to be fun as well

I was going to say that the character resembles a creepy looking monster thing from some other game (sorry, I can't remember the name, but uhhh you were a guy in a prison trying to escape; you had orange/yellow pants). Soldier of Fortune was... all right. Anyway, this might not look great, but Wolfenstein games are always fun to play.

I thought only those guys who developed Limbo of the Lost...
Ideas - yes. Content meaning a whole enemy design - look, behavior, role - c'mon...

And sure, through a straightforward shooter with Undying-style powers thrown into the mix, it still could be enjoyable.

ITT: Graphic whores.

Series have really big fanbase so i doubt it gonna flap ;)
But i don't really care. Still playing UFC and Infamous, enough for now ;)

Yea.. I love Wolfenstein but this looks pretty meh. I'll still check it out but it does look pretty disappointing. What happened Raven? Singularity looks way better than this.

Hmm, is this a direct remake of the excellent RTCW? It would have looked decent 5 years ago. Although that really doesn't matter. If it really is a remake, then it boggles the mind why they seem to have used a outdated graphics engine. It boggles the mind why they'd even want to remake it so soon in the first place. Next gen would have been a better avenue. Still, RTCW remains one of my all time best games that I've ever played, so this might tempt just to see what they've done to it.

No, it's a new story, about some artifact(s) that enable you to use powers like plane phasing and yada yada.
They said they're going for an "Indy" approach to Blazkovich's character - in a sense that he's going to escape even the most unfavorable odds. Just hope they don't throw in a refrigerator in there...

Sorry, but this just doesn't look like it came from the developers of RTCW, which was quality all the way around. RTCW 2 this is not.

I love it how people already made up their mind before even coming close to this. If this is anything near RTCW, I'll be picking this up. Looks very nice.

Because it looks nowhere near as awesome as RTCW.. I loved RTCW but I don't think I'll pick up this piece of shit...

This looks like an Xbox1 game.
Commented on 2009-06-16 19:11:45
RTCW was the first xbox live game that made me really appreciate xbox live. And now after all this time of waiting for a follow up with the class system in multiplayer like the last one, they give us this. Well heres hoping the multiplayer is still fun.
