Seems to be getting good reviews.  Wish it had MP.

Played for 115 minutes on Uber difficulty.
Feels nice, well optimized, but nonetheless has texture popping.
Gameplay is good, but it feels like it is my choice to go for stealth or terminator play style.
Also not hard enough.

Worth 60 so far.

Thanks, really needed to know there's a moon base, that's not spoilery at all :angry:

Of course there's a moon base, it's Nazis that won the war, but don't spell it out like that! Arrgghh

 

 

 

Soon you will even be posting in German, it's taken over you! Though it will give you good cause to be a grammar Nazi :p

 

Oops sorry :blush:  I didn't realise that was spoilery, i'm sure the moon base was in some ads/marketing material because that was out there way before the game was released.

Hahaha it's ok, i wasn't sure it was in there and didn't notice anything in official advertising, but guessed as much considering the lore...watching Iron Sky these again these days to add flavor to the experience :laugh:

Hmm, never played a Wolfenstein but you all keep saying it's excellent so I may have to pick it up. I think I'm pretty close to being exhausted with titanfall, and then I've got tomb raider, and then I'll need something else.

Did you sit there until the credits finished? :p

I did on purpose as I saw people saying to do so, and I saw

Also while I get why people are saying they wish it had MP, I am personally incredibly happy it did not. It allowed them to take all their resources and put it towards the SP, hence why it is such a great experience. I cannot help but think if it did include MP, it would not be as good as it is. Perhaps I am wrong, but I think this is a perfect example of why MP is not always necessary, and in fact can detract from the SP as resources would have been used towards it instead.

Agree 100%. They clearly sat down at some point, looked at their resources, skills, deadlines etc and made that decision not to have Multiplayer for a reason.  If the game wasn't that good you could say 'What were they even spending the time on?' (Ahem, watchdogs), but you can clearly see that they spent a lot of effort on the single player game and sacrificing MP made good sense.

 

There is no reason to have shoehorned Multiplayer especially if it would have come at the expense of anything else.  It is a great game and has some replayability.

 

Perhaps they might do it for the next game now that they know there is a big appetite for a solid, back-to-basics FPS game like wolfenstein.

Or maybe a dlc or free update like just cause 2? That would be great. Glad they focused on the single player side though.. Still enjoy it more than most multiplayer games recently.

Truly hope there is another game done by everyone involved in this game.

In retrospect, this game suffers from its check point save system.

I noticed that too, more than once I thought I had to start over when I was going for my platinum (luckily restart level fixed the issue at the time)

Finally beat the game last night. Incredible game, had so much fun.

Loved the final 2 sentence exchange between BJ and Desthshead, very 80s action movie style.

Will start another playthrough tonight.
