Product Description

Wolfenstein is a supernatural/science fiction first-person shooter, based on the video game series developed by Id Software that has been a favourite of 2D and 3D gamers across multiple game iterations and platforms since the early 1980s. In this new take, players battle the Nazi's dark obsession with the occult through epic action and harrowing shooter combat. Filled with ferocious enemies, movie-quality action scenes, unique gameplay environments, an impressive array of weapons and compelling multiplayer gameplay options, it is truly a fitting new chapter in the history of this classic gaming franchise.

Story
The storyline of Wolfenstein picks up where the events of Return to Castle Wolfenstein left off. You play B.J. Blazkowicz, a highly decorated member of the Office of Secret Actions (OSA). You are sent on a special mission into the heart of the Third Reich to investigate evidence of the Nazi's possession of a new and mysterious power. But while behind enemy lines, you discover they have done much more than develop a new weapon. The Nazis are attempting to harness the supernatural power of an enormous energy source called 'Black Sun' which resides in a parallel dimension called 'The Veil.' Their goal is to use what they find to create supernatural weapons and soldiers of war-ending magnitude. Yours is to stop that from happening by any mean necessary.

Gameplay
Even though the game obviously features loads of Nazi enemies, Wolfenstein is not so much a World War II game, as a game centred around "dark science" and "Supernatural Science fiction." In it players move between the parallel dimension of the Veil and that of our own as they command an enormous arsenal of conventional weapons or unleash the Nazi's own dark powers and perverted science against them with supernatural weapons and Veil-enhanced firepower.

One of the major strengths of Wolfenstein is that it allows you to choose the way you want to play. Although as in previous games in the series B.J. Is a one man wrecking crew, he also works with a local resistance group. This means that players have the choice to follow the standard missions as they are revealed, take on requests from the resistance to explore the gameplay area and investigate the Nazi experiments, or to tackle the whole endeavour in multiplayer mode.

Veil Power
A huge part of Wolfenstein's sci-fi identification comes via gameplay that relies on the accumulation and use of a number of 'Veil Powers'. These powers though supernatural in origin, are used in large part by B.J. To magnify the effectiveness of his conventional weaponry and tactics. A sampling of these powers include: 'Mire,' which allows you to slow down time around B.J. So that he can take out enemies and obstructions such as machine gun nests, without the risk of taking severe damage; 'Veil Sight,' a sort of supernatural night vision that helps you see enemies in the dark; and 'Veil Shield,' which absorbs bullet fire and can be used as a battering ram in some circumstances. As with all the weapons in the game, all Veil Powers can be upgraded and indeed must be in some cases to proceed through the game.

A notable caveat that comes along with the mastery of Veil Powers is that they do not necessarily guarantee overall success. As the game proceeds, the Nazis become aware of B.J. And his understanding and use of these powers and in response distribute 'Veil Inhibitors,' devices that negate the use of these Veil-powered abilities within range of them. This opens up a puzzle-solving aspect within Wolfenstein that require players to explore the environments around them to find the inhibitors and destroy them in order to proceed.

Key Features

  • Amazing Enemies - You never know what ferocious enemies the Nazis will throw at you next as they bring their dark fantasies to life.
  • Epic Combat Moments - Experience movie-like epic action sequences as you fight to prevent the Nazis from unleashing the power of the Black Sun, a war-ending weapon of supernatural mass destruction.
  • Unique Environments - Explore the mysteries of The Veil, a world between our reality and the occult underworld that offers you combat advantages but also new supernatural threats.
  • Impressive Firepower - Go to battle with a diverse collection of Allied, Axis and experimental Nazi weapons. Earn gold by working with the resistance fighters, purchase upgrades in the black market, and customize your personal arsenal.
  • Classic Wolfenstein Multiplayer with an Occult Twist - Revisit the heart-pounding and award winning class and objective based multiplayer of Return to Castle Wolfenstein; now with occult-enhanced firepower.
Weapons
Wolfenstein features a wide array of Allied, Axis and supernatural Nazi weapons. All of these can be upgraded using treasure in the form of gold, military intelligence and mystical tomes found throughout the game via the in-game black market. This escalation of firepower is important in order to match the growing power of mini-bosses and bosses faced with each successive game level.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't live up to its classic status 5 Sep 2009
By Bignose
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
PC version. Great game that is spoilt by being obviously developed for multiple platform compatibility. The graphics, though not bad, are not up to current PC standards, not as good as Crysis. You can't use your mouse buttons, apart from 1&2, probably because it's made for Playstation. The game play is fun and it has some good features. The early stages are incredibly un-challenging! It's definitely not worth paying the opening price... wait till it's on special offer, under a tenner, unless you don't care. It's a shame as this could have been brilliant, and it should be, as the original is a part gaming history...

3.0 out of 5 stars Das Wolf 30 Oct 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The singleplayer is a fun bloody Nazi shooter as it should be:-)

The game is suprisingly long, and the end boos is almost imposibly tough!

I recommend the game if you like WW2 shooters, blood/guts and bad german accents.

The graphics are a little dated, but not that bad. Some parts of the game look great, and then again some parts look 3 years old.

Anyway if you like FPS games on the pc, and you are looking for a decent singleplayer experience then this game is ok.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good but not brilliant game 3 Sep 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Ok so first up, it is a Wolfenstein game - shooting lots of Nazis with huge dash of the occult. So what's not to like?
Well, first up, the porting from a console based game with level saves is hugely frustrating to a pc gamer. It's not nearly as creepy as RtCW (think of the Crypt levels!). Whilst being allowed a certain amount of freedom as to where to go (thanks a bundle Oblivion, Stalker etc - not!) it's extremely frustrating. To the guys at ID/Raven- this is a FPS so code it accordingly!!
Graphics are not fantastic. I'm going to reply RtCW to see if the graphics have improved or not. This may be me having simply been spoiled by Crysis.
I'm still not decided about the Black Market element. After all if you kill someone who has a better weapon, why not simply be able to pick it up? Being self healing is also a bit poo. Med kits are the way to go!
In summary, worth playing if you've nothing else on the go but not nearly as good as RtCW

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not one of Id's best. 11 Oct 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Plus points:
-I like the more hub based approach that gives you more choice about the order you do things in. (With Doom 3 there was only ever really one route through the game).

Bad points:
-I hate auto-save games, or rather ones that don't allow manual saving. You fight all your way through a section, get killed and then have to do the whole thing over again. It's so frustrating. Especially when taking on some of the Boss monsters which are nigh on impossible on the hardest levels.
-Don't like the "Call of Duty" style mission compass. What's the point of giving you a large level to explore and then giving you a Sat Nav.
-Auto-healing, another bad feature inherited from Call of Duty. I know these games aren't about realism but if you get shot you don't miraculously get better if you hide round the corner for a few seconds. Conserving your health should be part of the game's strategy.
-The hero, BJ, has been given a make-under, he now looks like a chimp.

Overall Return to Castle Wolfenstein was a hard act to follow and Id have fallen short. Overall the plot felt weaker and the frustration caused by the auto-saving took a lot of the fun out of it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Return to Return to Wolfenstein? 21 Sep 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
With a big name such as "Wolfenstein", you can't help but have high expectations. Being the grandfather of the First Person Shooter, the original Wolfenstein 3D really broke many boundaries. But does Wolfenstein contribute to this legacy? Erm ...... no.

I knew, within an hour of playing, that this was not a step forward. Heck, it was almost even a step backwards (and many would even prefer Return to Castle Wolfenstein to this). Everything about the game just feels ... outdated. The graphics engine feels about 3 years old with low resolution textures everywhere. Granted, the game runs pretty smoothly, but with an engine that is this outdated, how could it not? Also aiming with a mouse and moving around feels ... odd. Like so many PC games these days, they are released on consoles too and this always leaves its mark on the quality. In this case, all controls in general were clearly designed for gamepad.

But there's plenty of other aspects that displease me: regenerating health, no leaning left or right, very poor AI, the use of checkpoints, auto-aim is turned on by default, etc. There's also a lack of attention to detail. There's Dutch posters hanging on the wall in German cities, there's nazi banners *everywhere* while any WWII buff knows that was not the case. Also, the game takes away the fun of finding items: they all glow and shine to make sure you don't miss them (which makes you wonder who would leave a bag of gold in the open in the first place).

In the end this is a polished but mediocre FPS. Its console influences really did it a lot more harm than good - I can't even say it's better than Return to Castle Wolfenstein which is nearly 8 years old!

3.0 out of 5 stars Please!!! Round bales in a WWII shooter game! 19 Jun 2013
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I really hope some people from id are reading this: the technology to make round bales was invented in the 70s... ergo, there isn't any justification to put round bales in a WWII shooter! (Okay - there are many fantastic things in this game, which doesn't really exist... but not necessarily out of ignorance).
It is like making a game set in ancient Rome and everybody talks on mobile phones... a bit of research can do wonders sometimes.
I also didn't like the boss-enemies, which were just frustrating.
But overall not a bad shooter game.
PS: I really like 'Rage'... it was really this game, which made me curious to try more id products.
