Wolfenstein Faithful Disappointed
K. J. Koch "The Presence", Amazon
17 July 2006
Summary: Ok, I played Wolfenstein way back in the day and loved it. I was thrilled with the prospect of reliving the good old days on my XBox. Imagine my disappointment when I played this game. This has no intriguing plot like the original, the graphics are sloppy, the controls are almost "Dead to Rights" terrible, and the only good point of the game is the weapons.
Summary: The game was a complete disappointment. Maybe I had my expectations set a bit too high. All the landscapes seem similar and like one of the other reviewers correctly pointed out, the controls make your head spin.
Summary: I thought this game would be something like SOCOM for ps2. Doesn't even come close. I've experienced nothing but lag and a sick feeling to my stomach. Literally playing this game for 30 minutes, I started to get nasuous. In fact I'm taking this game back today to trade it in for something else.
Summary: The game has three modes; Online Vs, 1 Player Story, and 2 Player story. I don't have Xbox Live, so I can't comment on the vs mode other than to say that the manufacturers really could have included a 2-4 player vs mode that those of us without Xbox Live could enjoy. The one player game is OK, but no where near as good as its fellow WWII competitor, Medal of Honor. The one advantage that this game has over M.O.H. is that you can play the story mode 2-Player co-operative.
DONT BUY THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Summary: RTCW is the worst game i have ever bought. the graphics are dull, sound is rubbish and the gameplay is dreadful. People say if you have xbox live it makes it better. trust me it is still rubbish. the weapons are crap, the controls are annoying and its just not appealing. it is overall a rubbish game. i would give it minus stars if i could. whatever you do Never Buy This Game. you will be better off with halo, splinter cell, soul calibur. I know about games.
