Decided to take a break from Skyrim and the PC and decided to play a console game. I decided to start a new game on 2009's Wolfenstein by Raven/iD. Back with I picked up the game I was gaming about 99% on my PS3 but now I am about 80% PC. Right away I noticed the 720p graphics and some lagging game-play at times. The game is very well done, its just not as sparkly as the PC games I am playing right now. I do have it on the PC and will try it out to see how different the versions are.

Raven/iD really polished the game on the ps3 into a really fun shooter. They added some fun mechanics to the game in the way of gold you can collect for in game item upgrades. You also get Veil Powers that allow you certain fun abilities in the game. One that comes to mind is the ability to create a shield around your player to block most incoming bullets for a time. The shooting is very well done too as you have some fun WW2 guns as well as some "veil energy" enhanced lazer gun type weaponry.

I guess I am sucker for killing Nazi's and Wolfenstein doesn't disappoint in this way. Add in a paranormal element and BJ Blaskowitz and the game feels like something out of an Indian Jones film.

I really hate that you can't get this on Steam anymore. I guess because the publisher pulled support? I was looking forward to it.

Yeah, at some point I saw it on Steam but it's not available anymore. Publishers was Activision... I think they have games on Steam.

Well Activision was recently let go from Blizzard East weren't they? That could have something to do with it. Some type of right issues or something. I've always wanted to play Wolfenstein and I'd probably agree with you 100% jdodson. There is no substitute when it comes to fps games. Having 60fps and a mouse to aim with makes them immeasurably more enjoyable.

Yeah the PC version is much more smooth. If you wanted, you could go box copy off Amazon. Or wait for Steam to catch back up.
