Summary: Wolfenstein is a legendary frachise. First appearing on Apple before the time of the Mac...then Atari, DOS, Commodore64...ID software picked up the ball and Wolfenstein 3D became one of the first FPS (first person shooters)...leading into Doom, Quake, and the rest is history. Tides of War is an incredibly ugly, flat, lifeless, colorless and borish game. The graphics relative to other xbox games of it's era simply do not measure up. Very dissapointing. Quake3 Engine.
Summary: This game has way below average graphics and sound. It has no real storyline. It's like an old doom game which were alright then, but should be much better now. The replay value is nothing great. Avoid this and go for any Tom Clancy stuff or Halo or many other shooters over this one. What a dissapointment.
Summary: i had no idea a nazi could take 15 machine gun rounds and an entire clip of pistol bullets. the flame thrower was my favorite part of the game. the multiplayer is fun and that is the only strength. Enemys are ridiculousy strong in my opionon. 2 stars for the flame thrower and multiplayer.
Summary: Seeing this title on the shelves brought back fond memories of the original Wolfenstein 3d, one the original first person shooters and a ground breaking game. However, there is nothing groundbreaking or revolutionary with "Return to Castle Wolfenstein". Castle Wolfenstein is Medal of Honor meets Goldeneye meets Rise of the Triad meets a half dozen other games, all crammed together for a fairly average gaming experience.
Summary: I was also disappointed with the firearms aspect of this game. You have to hit the bad guys a dozen times before they die even with the more deadlier weapons. After a while this gets tiresome as you can never kill a bad guy without him getting a few shots into you first.
