I got to play the demo at EGX in September and really loved the back to basics FPS gameplay it had which is a shout back to the original Wolfenstein games. It was a refreshing story driven FPS game with amazing weapons and gameplay and could be a surprise hit in the same year of the big FPS shooters.
