4 I`m obviously playing a different version to other people...Rogue918 | 28/08/2009 | See all Rogue918's reviews (16)I`m confused......As I live overseas I usually recieve my games and DVD`s slightly later than usual so was obviously dismayed to read some of the reviews this game was being given after pre-ordering it some time ago.Once I actually recieved the game though the disappointment turned to confusion as it became apparent the version I recieved in the post is quite obviously different to the one most people recieved.The one I got is an extrememly entertaining and playable version and a good addition to the Wolfenstein franchise.At the point of writing this reveiw it has to be noted that i have not finished the game but my conclusions so far include the following:Playability and storylineFrom the intro video at the beginning of the game it becomes obvious that this game is a follow-on from the previous titles and not a next gen re-make, so trying to compare it to RTCW is not really relevant, as the two are completely different games, although the concept is the same- Shoot bad guys. The storyline allows you to interact with other characters within the game and the ability to buy upgrades etc brings an element of RPG-ism into the mix too, and with the ability to switch goals using your journal does not make this a one horse race, though I can honestly say the ability to blow the crap out of Nazis will never get boring! The addition of hidden items on each level also bring a certain replayability to the game. These and other elements of playability make it an extrememly entertaining title to play in my opinion.I have not played, nor am I able to play online so cannot comment on the multiplayer aspect of the game.Enemy AIAlthough not the best example of AI in a game of this sort, it is no where near as bad as is being aluded to in some previous reviews. The enemy DO NOT run at you in a straight line waiting for you to shoot them. They will use squad tactics against you and will use cover for self preservation when available, which is a concept that a lot of other games of this genre do not employ. the NPC`s that you interact with will strike up conversations whilst going about their daily business and when you move as a group, they will cover your movement as well as waiting for you to place down fire before moving themselves. It is fair to say that a lot of work has been put into making this as realistic as possible, and in my opinion it has been acheived.GraphicsThe graphics are well drawn and there are some pretty nifty effects thrown into the game which make it an attractive title with some nice touches. On a minor point, the disappearance of dead enemy once off screen, which is a pet hate of mine, but one that can be looked over, and there is a little bit too much of a shine on some of the clothing and water effects at times. One of the NPC charatcers who takes you around the town, for example, looks like he is wearing a patent leather jacket its that shiny... Apart from that though, they are no way near as bad as some I have seen.OverallAlthough there are always going to be issues, as i have yet to play that perfect game, this title is no way near as bad as some people have made out. As stated i have not played the game through but my first few hours of play have been enjoyable and except for a few minor things such as disappearing bodies and maybe a bit too much shine on some of the graphics there are no major show stoppers in this game. The addition of the upgrading system and almost RPG-ish feel to interaction with the resistance members have brought a very nice touch to an exttremely polished title. The old BJ magic is still there though as this game sees you doing what he does best! maybe its not 5 star material, but its still worth a look!
