Wolfenstein – PC Review

Unigamesity
3 November 2010
  • Excerpt: One of the most anticipated PC games of the year, Wolfenstein was expected to revolutionize the first person shooting genre just like its predecessors did. Carrying such a difficult task, Rave Software, the developers of the game, did their best and actually managed to deliver a really high quality, must own product – even though not as “revolutionary” as the fans would’ve wanted.

  • Excerpt: Id Software didn’t develop the latest Wolfenstein, but the sequel to its genre-founding 1991 classic Wolfenstein 3D absolutely captures the meaning of the studio’s name: an impulsive, stimulating shooter full of gory, colorful, mindless gunplay. Wolfenstein embraces over-the-top action like a summer blockbuster movie. As U.S. super-operative B.J.
  • Pros: Elegant and destructive weaponry; well-animated enemies; bold use of color and visual effects.
  • Cons: Token multiplayer; pop-corn plot; familiar level design and shooter set pieces.

Time Robs Wolfenstein Of Its Charm

Game Informer
27 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: Disrupt another Nazi plan to harness ­occult ­powers Graphics: Environments filled with paranormal activity make the absence of a haunting mood all the more noticeable Sound: German soldiers kindly tell you when they are moving and reloading to help you kill them Playability: Standard corridor shootouts and boss fights feel dated in comparison to modern ­FPS ­games Entertainment: Solid controls let you tally high Nazi kill counts Replay: Moderate

Wolfenstein – PC Review

Unigamesity
7 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Although short and a bit too easy, Wolfenstein is the game we were expecting to play, a title that adds just enough new elements to the franchise and definitely keeps us asking for more. Wolfenstein is intense and fast paced, it has a great story to give some sense to the frantic bullet blasting and it is, to put it short, a really awesome first person shooter. It could’ve been better – there’s no doubt about that – but what it delivers right now is value for your money.

Wolfenstein (PC) - Review

VGChartz
5 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Wolfenstein is the second sequel to the great-grandfather of the FPS franchise. Without Wolfenstein 3D, the FPS franchise would probably be completely different or just not as successful as it is today. While speculating 'what ifs' is fine, what matters here is just how well does this new entry to the Wolfenstein franchise stack-up against the ever mounting competition and its roots.

  • Excerpt: Let’s get this out of the way -- Wolfenstein is a decent first person shooter. But in this generation of breathtaking visuals, revolutionary concepts and advancing technologies, just how far does decent get you? Wolfenstein does a lot of good, but it just doesn’t do anything great or new, and with so many superior first-person shooters available, it’s hard to recommend.

  • Excerpt: Wolfenstein was at the forefront of the first-person-shooter explosion, but like an addled codger, the franchise is stuck in the past. Devastating weapons and scary Nazis remain high in the mix in the new Wolfenstein , but rather than breaking hero B.J. Blazkowicz out of his corridor-shooter confines, developer Raven Software just adds acts of supernatural derring-do to his repertoire. Magic isn’t just for evil Nazis anymore.

Wolfenstein Review

23 August 2009
  • Excerpt: It's becoming a theme in this economy; “revitalizing existing IP”. What that means in layman's terms is, “Rather than taking a big financial risk on a new idea, let's dust off an old one and see if it'll still make money.” I mean how else can you explain all those the Star Wars: Battlefronts? Anyway, you can't blame a company for keeping a tight hold on the purse strings during a recession, and who's to say an incredible game can't be made from an old concept?

Wolfenstein (2009) PC

hardware heaven
23 August 2009
  • Excerpt: We recently reviewed the console version of Wolfenstein 2009 and we came away a little unimpressed with the overall experience - even though the core gameplay was pretty good. By no means a bad game it however didnt knock our socks off - something we are hoping the PC version might rectify today.

WorthPlaying
22 August 2009
  • Summary: Set within a near-fictional, historical WWII setting, players take on the role of the heroic OSA agent BJ Blazkowicz as they are thrust into the unknown and unexpected to battle against combat troops, otherworldly forces, and the dark science created by a supernatural Nazi force hell-bent on world domination.
