Can I start the one and only Enemy terrority thread?

So how is the game on xbox? I loved it on PC. I hope one day consoles and PC's could play each other for a hands down end of all ends battle for format honor.

Is this game completely different than the PC version of RtCW? I have that version and I enjoyed it, but I don't want to buy Tiders of War if it rehashes levels and gameplay I've already done.

Anybody know?

Some people still don't read, even after I put the effort to try to avoid such questions... :/

I've played about five Live games...the first four were a complete blast to play. I think the medic and engineer roles suit me well because I sure as hell can't aim.

The last one was so unbearably laggy that I had to disconnect.

Haven't tried out the single player campaign, yet.

Hey, jrutz
You should change the $15 off Gamer's Card to $5 . That confused me at first until I saw that the end price didn't match up.

You could pricematch tomorrow at EB for Best Buy's $39.99 (as long as its in stock) and in the current EB magazine/coupon book there is a mail in offer for a $10 rebate on any XBox game $39.99 or above.

Will EB honor a rebate on a pricematched item??? If so, I'm glad my local Best Buy didn't have Wolfenstein:TOW in stock today.

Got it, thanks.

Hey, the Wolfenstein review is up on IGN. Any Insider members care to post the summary? Thanks,

Jeremy

I read the Wolfenstein thread over at HTF. Someone said that IGN gave it a 9.3. No details on the review.

Anybody experiencing these bugs:

As much as I want to get this I'm talking myself out of it cause my wife is nagging me to stay on a budget. She wants a house and I want a video game. I think I should get mine because it's cheaper.

I want it but I have to keep saying it's too much like all the other online shooters I have. I must have to say that a million times a day. I might do a trade in deal later on and buy it.

Yeah, I wanted to resist buying it also, at least until it got really cheap. But 34.99 at Best Buy was too cheap for me to resist. Haven't had time to really play it yet.

Not true. Back of box shows split screen co-op.

Let me be safe and test it.....yep.

Split screen appears to be co-op only though.

That pretty much rules out system link for a lot of gamers.
I was going to pick up 2 copies for my lan parties, but now... nope.
