While everyone will have their own take on Wolfenstein, it has to be said that the multiplayer experience is quite sloppy. The game just doesn't feel right to us, which is surprising given id Software’s previous track which often set the...

While I enjoyed Wolfenstein and have begun to go through it again on the hardest difficulty setting, I can’t help but shake the feeling that this is just another case of consolitis afflicting a once proud PC-centric game series. Just like F.E.A.R....

The secret uber-weapons of WWII Id Software didn’t develop the latest Wolfenstein, but the sequel to its genre-founding 1991 classic Wolfenstein 3D absolutely captures the meaning of the studio’s name: an impulsive, stimulating shooter full...

I actually was quite mentally prepared to be disappointed when I first hear that Wolfenstein was coming back again, but was pleasantly surprised to finds myself immersed in the game right off the bat quite frankly. There are lots of cool levels,...

As I’ve tossed out before while talking about the Wolfenstein iPhone releases, my history with Wolfenstein is nearly 30 years old. I’m not sure how I initially found out about it – it could have been an impulse buy at the local...

A revival, but not an ambitious one. Wolfenstein is a decent first person shooter, but theres no hint of greatness here. Activision - Wolfenstein price Buy Wolfenstein securely online at a bargain price £29.99 inc. VAT Reviewed on: PC...

Famous for breaking in the first-person shooter genre in the early 1990s, the Wolfenstein series returns to its fantasy-themed World War II stomping ground in this polished, though predictable, update. The game sees players taking on the Nazi war...

IF QUENTIN Tarantinos definition of a "basterd" in the movie Inglourious Basterds is a soldier who kills Nazi soldiers, then William "B.J." Blazkowicz would make the ultimate "basterd".Since the early 1990s, B.J. has been gunning down Nazis in...

If youre looking for a unique shooter experience let me tell you right off the bat that Wolfensteins not it. It has nothing innovative or outstanding about it, but somehow, its bag o used goodies still comes together to offer an entertaining...

Wolfenstein continues the occult-focused science-fiction driven story scenarios begun by Wolfenstein 3D in 1992 and continued in Return to Castle Wolfenstein in 2001. Its gameplay is more in-depth than its predecessors now that it features faction...

Wolfenstein marks the return of hero B.J. Blazkowicz, once again fighting the Germans in WW2. This time however the situation takes on a more sci-fi feel with lots of supernatural elements compared to RTCW. Wolfenstein takes place in the town of...

The franchise that can be called the cradle of first-person shooters makes a whelming return. Titled as if it were to be the definitive iteration of the series, Wolfenstein is in fact just a sound addition. Co-developed by four studios (id, Raven, Pi...

First person shooters have had a substantial role in my playing of video games for most of my life. When shareware giant, Apogee, teamed up with id Software in 1992 they would create Wolfenstein 3D, the grandfather of all FPS titles. Wolfenstein 3D...

I remember the first time I played Wolfenstein 3D. My father had just bought a computer, and someone had given him a copy of the shareware. He may not have cared for it, but I was hooked, monopolizing the keyboard until I saw everything there was to...
