RTCW Review

Avault has posted a pretty good review of Return to Castle Wolfenstein, giving it a final score of 4.5/5. Unfortunately, the author's German fails him at one point. He mentions how in the id original, the soldiers shouted "mein lieber" when they died. Actually, they said, "mein Leben" (which means "my life!"). Thanks Evil Avatar.
