Wolfenstein: Almost there

Activision has released Wolfenstein's launch trailer as the game will hit the shelves on August 18 in North America. In Europe, it's a bit more complicated as it seems only the PC version will be released next week whereas console players will have to wait until August 28. (PC, PS3, Wolfenstein, Wolfenstein 3D, Xbox 360)

Here in Canada Wolfinstine is $69.00.There have been a few other games that have launched at that price aswell like 50 cent Blood on the Sand and Terminator Salvation.

Where are the reviews?

I've got a bad feeling...
My usual theory about games, as with movies, is if reviews are not forthcoming before the product is out, the odds on bet is that the product itself is garbage and even the producers know it. I really enjoyed the last Wolfenstein, but the fact that there is no information out there as to the quality of this game gives me a very bad feeling.

I'm not worried. I'm getting this game regardless of the reviews since the Wolfenstein FPS series is one of my all time favourites. I'll make my own judgement and not let any half assed reviews dictate what I should and shouldn't like. I will probably buy it pre-owned though as a result of it being published by activision.

I am playing the game and I can tell you right now, it is a solid 7-8 (which by inteligent gamer standards, is good) And I like when devs actually try to mess around with the FPS genre, since there is really nowhere else left to go with shooters right now.

Raven have done a solid shooter that attempts to break the mold, it has an outlandish story and is technically sound, what more can you ask for in a shooter these days?

oh, and the multiplayer is a solid class based online shooter, which does not have the enemy territories name, since they raped that with quake, but it is clearly a sequel to what came with the Return to Castle Wolfenstein. You know, the game people still play on Live and on PCs almost 8 years later.

Or maybe the embargo date is set sometime for tomorrow or Tuesday? Or maybe include the fact that retail units may not be available yet to send out to reviewers.

This exact thing happened to Prototype; also coming from Activision.

Why do us Europeans have to wait until the 28th? There's no excuse for that, the game is Region Free and everything!

Wolfenstein feels great as a shooter but everything else about it is tired and boring. Skip this one.
peeps  +   2249d ago
wheres the source for this? cus shops are still saying 21st for UK (which is correct since games in the UK come out on the friday rather than the tuesday)
beavis4play  +   2249d ago
no interest.
this reminds me of a "sci-fi channel" movie in game form.

i might look at this 5 years from now when i can get it for $5-10

it's an OK shooter... nothing mind blowing and definitely not worth the 7 year wait. But it doesn't suck.
mrv321  +   2249d ago
The Wolfenstein game has some good features for example when you collect intel you get it read to you, that's better than reading tons of text but removes more emersion even more emersion than a box of text coming up and reading it.

Even if WOLFENSTEIN gets unexceptional reviews I'll probably buy it. Gunning down Nazis never really gets boring, does it?
Dazel  +   2249d ago
All the UK...
...retailers have this still on for the 21st? Guess they'll update the dates in the morning?
MrRaveDave  +   2249d ago
shame about the publisher
unfortunately its published by Activision...

no buy for me then!
