Return to Castle Wolfenstein
26 May 2012
Excerpt: The grandaddy of first person shooters has returned, and it took no less than 3 companies to make it happen. Let’s see what the combined forces of ID Software, Gray Matter and Nerve have cooked up for us.
Excerpt: I’ve noticed a funny thing about the reading public. In one of the Rental columns I asked for suggestions as to the best horror movies of all time, and got maybe 40 responses, which I considered pretty good at the time.
Excerpt: It's 1943 and nearing the end of World War II. The Third Reich are getting desperate to win and will try anything. They are dabbling with the occult to try and resurrect and evil knight. They are also genetically engineering super robot soldiers that have many highly advanced weapons.
Excerpt: After long 9 years of waiting is Wolfenstein back! Yeah it's true :) Return to Castle Wolfenstein (RTCW) is the reincarnation of Wolfenstein 3D. For those who don't remember (Shame on you!), in Wolfenstein 3D agent B.J. Blazkowicz must escape from Nazi imprisonment and stop the Nazi war machine.
Excerpt: The legendary Wolfenstein series has finally made it to the Xbox. Its predecessor, Wolfenstein 3-D, was the first first-person shooter video game ever released. Now Xbox owners can finally play what PC gamers have been playing since it was released in 2001.
Excerpt: You are B.J. Blazkowicz, a highly decorated Army Ranger Recruited into the Office of Secret Actions(OSA), tasked with escaping and then returning to Castle Wolfenstein in an attempt to thwart Heinrich Himmler's occult and genetic experiments.
Pros: Great Multiplay With Predefined Voice Chat Command, Offering Free Stand-Alone Expansion Pack, Unique Class System, Ton of Maps & Mods by Users
Excerpt: Those of us who were into gaming in the early 1990s will remember Wolfenstein 3D with a great deal of affection. Very similar to Doom (hardly surprising, given that both games came from the stable of Id), the game revolved around gunning down Nazis as one made one’s escape from, you guessed it,...
Conclusion: Return to Castle Wolfenstein must really be looked at as two separate games. If I were to grade the single player out of five then it would receive 2½ because of the lack of visual clues. However the multiplayer side of the game would receive an excellent 5 as it is superb.
Excerpt: Pop quiz, hot shot: you have just been dropped in the middle of a battle seen from WWII. Thompson sub machineguns rattle of rounds mortars fire and panzerfausts being shot in your direction and you have two decisions to make.
