Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

You are B.J. Blaskowitz, a bad-ass Army Ranger recruited into the Office of Secret Actions (OSA) tasked with escaping and then returning to Castle Wolfenstein in an attempt to thwart Heinrich Himmler's occult and genetic experiments. Himmler believes himself to be a reincarnation of a 10th century dark prince, Henry the Fowler, also known as Heinrich. Through genetic engineering and the harnessing of occult powers, Himmler hopes to raise an unstoppable army to level the Allies once and for all.

You must first escape from imprisonment in the castle to report the strange creatures and happenings in and around Wolfenstein to the OSA. Your mission takes a drastic turn as you learn the depth of Himmler's plans and what you must do to defeat the evil he has unleashed.

This is what you have been trained for. Your surroundings will be dangerous and hostile. We are currently tracking activities believed to be associated with Himmler in locations throughout Germany including; villages overrun by the occult, hidden crypts, forests, air bases, secret weapons facilities, and genetic labs, to name only the few we are aware of. There are more, and you must find them.

Failure is not an option. If Himmler succeeds, the war is over for the Allies... and the war is over for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best FPS since Half Life! 1 Dec. 2003
When Wolfenstein came out it had tough opposition in Medal Of Honor: Allied Assualt. Both were FPS games based on WW2, one serious, the other slightly camp - and Wolfenstien was all the better for it. Instead of plain realism (overrated in many games) it went for sheer playability, and therefore became a more enjoyable gamingg experience than MOHAA will ever be. Don't get me wrong MOHAA is a good game, but Wolfenstein is the FPS I have enjoyed most since the lengendary Half Life (soon to gain a sequel). This Wolfentstein game is actually the second - the originally often being credited as the game which spawned Doom. Looking back on it now it is actually quite a boring game, but the new version has taken the series to a completely new level. At this price it would be a crime to miss out on a FPS that while not revolutionary is certainly one of the most polished games in it's field - and a (...) good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Triple-A shooter 31 Oct. 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Return to Castle Wolfenstein certainly has a blockbuster pedigree. It's a sequel to Wolfenstein 3D - id Software's first-person shooter that defined the genre, which was itself a follow-up to the beloved Apple II classic Castle Wolfenstein.

Wolfenstein is primarily a run-and-gun shooter with some stealth sections mixed in. It also features enemy guards engaged in conversations as you approach them, a largely defensive AI for those guards, and between-level cut scenes that recount meetings between your superiors back at home base.

The story, which involves your attempt to stop the Nazis from creating biomechanical zombie super soldiers, is somewhat far-fetched; Wolfenstein's graphics are the games strongest selling point. Wolfenstein's levels are spread across seven missions and feature a good variety of environments. The levels alternate between expansive outdoor scenes, such as a Nazi camp with a good deal of hilly terrain surrounding it, to interiors that range from cramped tombs to massive, ornate castle chambers. The quality and detail of the levels' textures and lighting are uniformly excellent. The weapon models, the character models, and the animations are also first-rate. Character movement is especially smooth. Though the conversations between the guards may not be terribly interesting, the guards' idle animations are great. For instance, at one point a guard patrolling the deck of an icebound submarine stretches, lights up a smoke, takes a few puffs, then drops the butt and stubs it out under his heel. You'll often delay your assault on guards just to sit and watch what they do. The game's zombies - who look more like mummies than traditional rotting undead - move with a convincing disjointed shuffle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Correction to dec0de 5 Mar. 2004
Just for those of you that might have been put off be dec0de's reveiw.
He is incorrect, Enemy Territory is a completly seperate game and not a mod for Return to Castle Wolfenstein. It was origonaly intended as an expansion to Castle Wolfenstein but the developers canceled it at the last miniute and some of the programers working on it decided to release it for free. You do not need Castle Wolfenstein to play Enemy Territory. It is well worth buying just for the online play as there is a huge fanbase out there always willing to give people new to the game a chance to learn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spookenstein 5 Dec. 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What a great game! All the spooky noises keep you jumping. It's got the right balance of being not too difficult to stop you playing and not being too easy to stop you playing.

The online "Enemy Territory" included with this version is superb. I'm still playing it 3 years on, looking forward to Enemy Territory Quake Wars wihch hopefully comes out early next year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Note on Enemy Territory 17 Jan. 2004
Contrary to what blaarghh says the enemy territory mod that was made free and is downloadable from the net does not require this game. However, ET is only a multiplayer game and in my opinion hardly compares to the brilliant Return to Castle Wolfenstein, so I strongly reccomend the purchase of this game - especially at such a bargain price!

5.0 out of 5 stars A true classic 16 Aug. 2006
This is a masterpiece with playability written all over it. It's not a new title, but it's still going strong. Trigger happy first-person-shooters will enjoy this gem - and play it over and over again. A true classic - and worth every penny. Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic & timeless videogame 6 May 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
i actually play the next in the series, however it's built off of this game and they are incredible similar in most ways. this is a basic and simple shooter with a unique charm that's allowed it to live on years and years passed other shooters
