  • Excerpt: ‘Welcome to Holiday 2003 with me, Carol Smillie. On tonight’s programme, Judith Chalmers experiences the ecstasy and agony of Ibiza, I spend a fortnight harpooning whales off the Icelandic coast while Mike Tyson explores Dorset on a senior citizens’ coach tour. But first, our newest correspondent embarks on an adventure holiday with a difference. Over to Paul Taylor, who’ll be exploring a number of locations in the Third Reich era.’ Thank you, Carol.

Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Tides of War – Review

GameCritics.com
31 March 2004
  • Excerpt: It seems that as long as there are videogames, there will be military-themed videogames. The most obvious explanation for the genre's continuing popularity is that gamers seem to love action, and the most obvious place to look for action is during a war. But which war? The Great War and the Korean War are fairly inaccessible, as evidenced by the fact that no one in the general public seems to know exactly why they happened, or who 'we' (by which, of course, I mean the...

  • Excerpt: History books never made a big deal about it, but since so many videogames (and comics) seem to believe that Hitler and his SS were interested in the occult, it must be true. In Return to Castle Wolfenstein , you play as B.J. Blazkowicz, an American soldier during World War 2, whose mission is to find out and destroy Heimlich Himmler's occult project.
  • Pros: Large detailed areas, Great online and multiplayer, Sharp audio package
  • Cons: Stealth and auto-aim aren't great, Single player mode has very little replayability

  • Excerpt: Computer gamers have been familiar with Castle Wolfenstein games for quite some time now.  The venerable series of games that pit a lone American soldier against hordes of Nazis and their supernatural minions can actually be credited with launching the first person shooter genre.  Console gamers now finally get their chance to stop the occult arm of the nazi war machine in its tracks in Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Tides of War (RCW).

  • Excerpt: What would the entertainment industry do without Nazis? If Hitler had not founded the National Socialist Party Hollywood might have been forced to invent it, because generations of heroes have won their stripes by gunning down legions of Brownshirts and Storm Troopers.

  • Excerpt: Nazis have to be the most enduring (if not particularly endearing) human video game villains ever, going all the way back to the ancient Castle Wolfenstein games that we old-timers played on our Apple II computers. Like in-laws or a bad rash, the Nazis are back in this revamped console version of 2001's critically acclaimed first-person shooter PC game.

  • Conclusion: game is completely new. In the PC version, you simply began in Castle Wolfenstein. The new section fills in the background details of why and how B.J. ended up at the castle. The rest of the game is nearly identical to the PC version – blast Nazi’s, stop a paranormal plot, take on a horde of half-dead “things”, uncover hidden treasure, navigate and escape the huge castle, save the world, etc. – with a few exceptions.

  • Excerpt: I love my first person shooters. There’s nothing better than blasting the crap out of some zombie or Nazi, or in fact, a combination of both. Wolfenstein 3D was the game that started the whole thing off, it was the game that spawned a genre packed full of great, and not so great games. Back in 2001, id resurrected the series on PC with Return to Castle Wolfenstein and it earned critical acclaim.
