Summary: While it's easy to call Wolfenstein 3D a classic game that helped birth the first-person shooter genre, it's not as easy to recommend this Xbox Live Arcade port. The game remains the same, but 17 years later that's not exactly a compliment. The sad thing is, with one simple change to the controls, Wolfenstein 3D would have been a must-own classic for everybody that loves Call of Duty or Halo! This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
Conclusion: Everyone should experience this piece of gaming history, especially if you are a first-person shooter fan. It is not much to look at today, but it still holds up well for nostalgic gamers. Fighting Nazis and Hitler himself has never felt so good. If you love earning trophies, Wolfenstein 3D offers some challenges that makes it worth picking up on the Playstation 3 for only $4.99.
Conclusion: The game-play might feel hilariously outdated and unnecessarily confusing at times, but it's worth overcoming the bumps, if only to say "yeah, I killed mecha-hitler. WHATS GOOD?!?" And if you still think stuff like Halo is the reason FPS is here, please forward me your name and address. I'd like to meet you, and beat sense into you.
Summary: As a direct port-over, Wolfenstien 3D for the Xbox LIVE Arcade is as perfect as it gets, making it one of the definitive ways to currently own a pound-for-pound production of the original. Based on the game’s technical merits and 1992 production date, Wolfenstein 3D was an impressive romp through Nazi strongholds and laid down the basis for the FPS genre.
Excerpt: A második világháború sűrűjében Te vagy B.J. Blazkowicz, a Szövetséges Hatalmak kémje, egy tevékenység-felderítő, aki azért épült be hogy kiderítse, kit fogtak el a nácik, kínoztak meg és zártak be a Castle Wolfenstein falai közé, ahol a kegyetlen kivégzésére vár. Most rajtad múlik hogy teszel valamit, vagy megteszel mindent hogy elmenekülj a náci útvesztő legmélyéről.. vagy legalább megpróbáld.
