Return To Castle Wolfenstein
30 July 2004
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. Himmler believes himself to be the reincarnation of a 10th century dark prince, Henry the Fowler, also known as Heinrich. Through genetic engineering and the harnessing of occult powers.
Pros: Great Multiplay With Predefined Voice Chat Command, Offering Free Stand-Alone Expansion Pack, Unique Class System, Ton of Maps & Mods by Users
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. This is how a total score of 7½ was arrived at. If multiplayer is your thing then the game is a must buy. If you like both elements then the game is still recommended.
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. What side will you fight for, and which role will you play to help lead your team to victory?
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: RTCW is a great game and should definitely be played be FPS fans and gamers looking for something new on Live. The well told story and good gameplay mechanics make this a strong title that deserves a good playing session. Anyone interested in this title should give it a try.
Excerpt: I haven't played a first person shooter game
since Unreal and Half-Life. Real time strategy has consumed all my gaming time. After watching
friends play Return to Castle Wolfenstein, I was very impressed with the graphics, gameplay and
environments, in particular. So I tried it myself and was pleasantly surprised.
The story... you are B.J. Blaskowitz, a bad-ass American secret operative sent behind enemy lines
to stop Himmler's project in its tracks.
Excerpt: Long-time computer game players will remember Wolfenstein 3-D , a primitive-by-today's-standards first-person shooter (FPS) game that paved the way for the Doom s and Quake s that Id Software would eventually revolutionize again and again. Id has revisited the classic title in a revamped, re-imagined Return to Castle Wolfenstein , a visceral, stunning game that brings back the Nazi-gunning thrill of the original--and grounds it with a less-than-satisfying storyline.
Excerpt: S'il est un jeu qui méritait d'être relooké et amené aux normes techniques du XXIème siècle, c'est bien Wolfenstein. Véritable père fondateur du FPS, Wolfenstein amena en son temps toute une génération de joueurs à la lumineuse conclusion que flinguer un ennemi en face à face, ça avait tout de même une autre gueule et ça nécessitait une autre implication mentale que les flinguer avec un petit tas de pixels cuirassés représenté de profil.
Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Operation Resurrection
12 October 2011
Excerpt: Ano e meio após o lançamento do original, RTCW volta à carga, desta feita na PlayStation2! Para além de apresentar um sector visual mais pobre relativamente às duas anteriores versões RTCW ? PC e Xbox -, Operation Resurrection, não vem acompanhado por qualquer modo multiplayer. Uma situação verdadeiramente inexplicável.
Excerpt: Le célèbre château Wolfenstein signe son grand retour sur PC sous le titre éloquant de Return To Castle Wolfenstein. Un principe qui reste identique au titre mythique mais avec bien entendu quelques générations d'écart, histoire de profiter cette fois-ci du moteur de Quake 3 mis à contribution pour l'occasion. Id Software et Gray Matter nous font une fois de plus une démonstration de leur savoir-faire avec ce FPS particulièrement réussi.
