    GameSpy Arcade
    The best way to get in the game. GameSpy Arcade offers complete support for both the Wolfenstein multiplayer test and the full retail version. This server browsing and matchmaking utility lets you see a complete list of Wolfenstein servers on the Internet, and then connect to them with a simple click.

    RtCW Official Movies

    Official Trailer
    This is the movie you need to download and watch. It's a remix of the movie shown at E3, 2001, but with a redone soundtrack. It shows almost all in-game footage to give you an excellent idea of what the game looks and feels like.

    Intro Sequence
    This is the very cool CGI sequence that you see at the beginning of the game. Some very nice work here.

    Behind Enemy Lines: The Making of RTCW
    This is an extremely cool movie that you need to watch. It's big, but it contains all kinds of behind the scenes footage and video interviews with the folks from Gray Matter. It's one of the movies that appears on the CD you got if you preordered the game from some retailers.
