I wasn't terribly excited about this until I read the preview on Rock, Paper, Shotgun. Also, this sounds like good news:
Yeah, we’re all fans of the old Wolfenstein 3D but we’re also fans of some of the old school design elements of old shooters. I actually replayed Doom I a year ago and I had a lot of fun with it. So we think that there are some design principles that have been left behind that maybe shouldn’t have been left behind. So we wanted to bring them back and marry them to the modern design sensibilities, so the health system is an example of that.
I'm cautiously optimistic.

On a somewhat related note, I really want to pick up a copy of the last Wolfenstein. I know Mark almost always gives positive reviews, but the Classic Game Room review made it sound pretty decent.

I'm quite excited looks like a interesting FPS. I too loved Mark's review, he's positive about gaming when most other people are negative or down right depressive

Got the Occupied edition yesterday, but didn't want to get too far into it before the 'day one' patch. Awesome graphics, intense opening, I even liked the cover system. Going to turn on the One in a minute and do the patch...I may even get to play some more tonight ;)

Game is awesome, enjoying it a lot. Proper Old school FPS. Awesome set pieces. Massive robots to blow up. Haven't had a single problem yet, although obviously some have....

Bought it today but haven't played it due to a really slow 5GB download update thing tonight which took 2 hours for some reason, so will play it tomorrow night, sigh. Way too late now...

Yep, I missed that on the back of the package. Luckily, I had a spare USB memory stick, so I managed to install it.
As far as I can see, it only installs the first disc, then plays off of the remaining 3.

It's good, so far (I'm only a few levels in...). I don't like the button press to pick up ammo and armour (it really should be automatic considering this is a Wolfenstein game). And the 3 steps, then a cut scene is a bit annoying.

Please, please let there be no QTE... please?!
