      Like 5-10 minutes on an empty LAN server. It was enough to make me realize that it feels nothing at all like ET. Pretty disappointed, but we'll see. I saw no servers on the browser, so I couldn't play a real MP game. All I wanted was an updated RTCW/ET game and I don't think I got it.

          Haven't touched it yet. I really only cared about the MP. I'll try it out later, though.

            Wow, I'd be totally the reverse. I don't really play FPS games online or in MP (except our semi-regular LAN parties) anymore. I'd only care about the SP.

            Same, Impressions so far not so good. Bit of a disaster really surely it was out of id's control? No doubt activisions fault.

      I bought it, and will report back after i'm done playing for a bit. Plan to start with SP as I don't expect much MP action this early.

      Yeah, picked it up at a local Gamestop for PS3. They sold out of 360 copies while I was there, I got the last copy for PS3, and there was one copy for PC still in stock.
      I got it mostly for SP...I guess I'll find out tonight if it lives up to the Wolfenstein name...
