Because those pesky robo-zombie-nazis don't kill themselves you know....

Have been at a loss for a good Xbox game in ages (since Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory) and thought the Batman Begins game would fill the sneaky sneaky shooty shooty void, no such luck. I don't know what it is but they never get Batman games right (I tried in vain to play this pile of digicrap). Batman has such great scope for a game but the Batman Begins one isn't it, everything is two clunky one would think firing barangs would be fun but all that happens is a batarang icon apprears and you press a button and it automatically hits the target. Planning to trade in the bat-bobbins for Black or Far Cry.

Anyway, a mre £1.99 in cash coverters hooked me up with Return to Castle Wolfenstein. Wolfenstein is of course, id software's prototype for Doom and the like. I enjoyed this much more than Doom 3, it's got more outdoor sequences, more sneaky sniping and a great range of crazy and historical weapons. It does give you a banging headache with all the bullets flying everywhere and Nazi's shouting 'schnell!' all the time, which is nifty inbuilt feature to stop one playing it too long at one sitting.
