Now, I was a Wolfenstein fan ever since I played it on my old Mac many years ago... So, when my pal picked the sequel up for PS2, of course I had high expectations. So far, the game really kicks ass - there's still a Wolfenstein feeling in the air, but now there's alot cooler graphics. The big question on my mind was - can the game be recaptured, better yet, can it be put on the PS2 succesfully. I think 'yes', the game is pretty entertaining for the most part - while nowhere near as great as Hitman 2 - RtCW really makes itself worth a purchase (though I refuse to pay over $30 for any games).
The bigger flaws is the irritating lack of accuracy in the weapons... I'm taking head-shots at people and the bullet jumps several inches above the intended target. Another thing - in the Original Wolf there was a lil cheat map where you could see who was in the rooms around you - this is no longer avaliable, which sucks when you wanna play around a lil.
Best moment -
There's a lil alley, outside of this desert town, I step out of the shadows and quickly jump back to cover, trying to draw out enemy fire. Nothing happens, so I step out again and walk forward. BAM, I'm hit by a single shot, then by another, and I realize this is no infantryman, I'm getting blazed by a sniper. So - I ease around the corner, toss a grenade randomly, then figure out where he is - on the second story of a little house across the alley. So I run across the street and lean against the building with the sniper in it, I get another grenade, I crawl into the inside of the building and throw the grenade to the second story... I run out, then all a sudden the sniper jumps from the second story as the grenade blows, and he takes a good pop at me... I gun him down with my tommy, but he manages to knock me down to about 8 health... Dunno if the AI is that smart or if it was just luck, but it was awesome finally having some competition.
