Summary: This is a great follow up on the Wolfenstein story. Wolfenstein 3D was my first 3D game in the early 90's and was the first computer game I'd played that actually would startle me from time to time. When Return to Castle Wolfenstein came out a few years back, I snatched it up and have played it through many times since. This game was an unexpected surprise and I've enjoyed it very much.
Summary: A far cry from the great game put out in 2001 that was "Return To Castle Wolfenstein" but terrible only if you are comparing it to the former. Assuming that you take it as a game based on it's own merits, it it worth a look. You still get to kill lots of Nazis and weird creatures, so that's a plus. The biggest change from the prior versions is a magical amulet you use to give yourself different super powers.
Summary: Still the best third person shooter game because there is more to it than just shoot-em-up. I've played "The Castle" for years, and still enjoy it but this game has greater weaponry and requires more thought relative to elimination of the bad guy - great graphics!
Summary: I have loved all of Id's games from the original Wolf3D (which I still play in DosBox!) to this game and Rage. Raven and Id Software pulled it off again with this title. The RPG style elements like weapon upgrades is a great touch. It does not detract from the classic "run-n-gun" FPS style of game this game offers. You won't be disappointed if you waited until now to get this one.
Summary: Hey, if you've been playing this game series as long as I have there's nothing I can say that you don't already know. They're fun, have well thought out scenarios and venues, imaginative situations enemies who are difficult to overpower and you get to fight Evil in the form of National Socialists.
Summary: I cut my pc game eyeteeth on Wolfenstein 3D, Spear of Destiny, Duke Nukem 3D, original Doom, and so on.... Return To Castle Wolfenstein was so advanced from the original, I was surprised how much the game had retained its 'flavor'... But, Wolfenstein takes a step back, with the annoying gameplay I've come to associate with second rate game developers...
Summary: I remember playing the first Wolfenstein way back in the 80's and loved it then. Just built me a new pc and wanted to get back gaming and decided to buy this one. Runs real smooth and once you figure out the game play norms its really fun. Cheat codes are there at the end of the game so you can go back and play it again on high settings which is even funner! I would say try this game to anyone who wants a fun shooter type game.
