  • 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.

  • 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: 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: 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.

  • Conclusion: Wolfenstein is unlikely to blow anyone away, but it supplies you with a lengthy, atmospheric and challenging solo experience and several multiplayer options as well, including what is fast becoming the most popular Xbox Live game.
  • Pros: Tense WWII action coupled to sci-fi horror., Cool multiplayer options, including Xbox Live compatibility.
  • Cons: The game is very dark and dingy in places., Boss battles can annoy., Unremarkable graphics for an Xbox game.

  • Summary: Nothing has really changed in the past two years, but you get a cleaner, more stable game and the ability to kill Nazis over Xbox Live. What more could you want?

  • Conclusion: Un excellent portage qui respecte parfaitement le gameplay de l’épisode PC et qui s’en sort avec panache. Cependant, son achat n’est recommandé que si vous êtes ignorant ou fan du titre. Ceux qui se sont déjà adonné à la chasse aux mort-vivants sur PC peuvent passer leur chemin sans regret, le titre ne bénéficiant tout de même pas d’un rendu supérieur ni d’options indispensables.
  • Pros: Une grosse campagne solo, Un mode coopératif, Du Live cool
  • Cons: Des graphismes un poil ancien, Une précision floue au début, Pas de multi off-line

  • Excerpt: Même en n'étant pas vraiment familier avec les jeux PC, Wolfenstein doit forcément sonner comme un nom familier à vos oreilles. Ce jeu de tir à la première personne qui vous opposait à l'armée nazie revient cette fois sur console dans une version spécialement dédiée à la Xbox.

  • Conclusion: Todo, absolutamente todo a sido cuidado en este juego. Los gráficos mejorados respecto a su predecesor, efecto ambiental y sonoro elevado infinitamente gracias el sonido DD 5.1 y por si fuera poco jugabilidad a raudales, no podrás despegarte del mando. Si esto, por casualidad, no fuese suficiente, no te desesperes te queda Xbox Live. Te esperan montones de partidas online que te harán disfrutar como un niño.
  • Pros: Historia muy elaborada, Realmente nos sentiremos dentro del campo de batalla, Sonido excelente, Incorpora Xbox Live
  • Cons: Historia muy elaborada, Realmente nos sentiremos dentro del campo de batalla, Sonido excelente, Incorpora Xbox Live
