    Well since they're in SDL now I wanted to see what this community things about them overall. I restricted it to Poet's signature (biggest reputations), exclusively by him stuff for now. Obviously I know they are very much puzzle mods and my options are based around that. And feel free for comments as usual! Smile

    Always asking for opinions huh Forever? I have played a little bit of the Tower, but not enough to make judgements on it yet.

    Hmm, I nearly voted for the second option but decided eventually on the first option. I feel there's enough in the sets to warrant the first option. Smile

    @Schabbs In the particular aspect on the puzzles, would they make the games even more worthwhile if you're a fan of puzzle type gameplay? Or do you feel they are a detraction, even for fans of the style?

    They were made for puzzle type gameplay so they are going to be best for that. It has been achieved very well. But it is not really a distraction as the basic design and decoration is also very good.

    Played WX31-SDL. Very nice. Didn't get the secret weapons, but still killed all the bosses. Clearly it is stealth at first until you've got the ammo at your disposal to fight things! Poet's puzzle style is very obvious already. To boot you often have to be quite careful what you walk on top of - those bombs, green pools, and blue water can be very harmful to your survival!

    I hope this isn't the best he's got to offer because if this keeps up this is a very unique way to do Wolfenstein IMO. Stands out from the crowd because you have to use your BRAIN here! Yes, that's right, you must THINK before acting!

    I think its worthwhile, if you like puzzles or you are adventure point & click games fan. Poets games is always unique ( puzzle type gameplay).
