Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

It's been nearly a decade since Wolfenstein 3-D began the first-person shooter genre and at long last everyone's favourite Nazi basher, B J Blazkowicz, is back in Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

Set during World War II, Return to Castle Wolfenstein finds the Nazis dabbling in the black arts in an effort to raise a demonic prince from the dead and create an army of uber soldats. Naturally, Blazkowicz is the only thing that can stop this supernatural onslaught, so he's set behind enemy lines in an effort to stop Himmler and his evil lieutenant Deaths Head.

On the surface, the single-player game seems like pure gold--after all, everyone loves blowing away Nazis. The graphics look great and the catacomb levels are non-stop action as the armies of the undead are intent on sucking your brains out and serving them up on a nice bit of Melba toast. But it’s not the longest game in the world and in the end does fall a little short of the standards set by titles such as Half-Life and Max Payne.

In fact, the best thing about Return to Castle Wolfenstein is its team-based multiplayer mode. Each multiplayer adventure features Axis vs. Allies and both sides offer four character classes: engineer (removes obstacles), medic (heals and revives team-mates), lieutenant (calls in air strikes and replenishes ammo) and soldier (only class able to use sniper rifles, flamethrowers and other unusual weapons). The game includes only eight multiplayer maps, but they are all perfectly designed, and in order to be successful teams have to work together. The result is a great gaming experience that fans of Counter-Strike or the Day of Defeat mode for Half-Life will really appreciate.

Graphically, Return to Castle Wolfenstein looks amazing. It uses the powerful Quake III engine to great effect and the character models, explosions and lighting effects are all perfectly done. --Jason Trebegger

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.

I'm currently fighting through the final battle of this amazing new game.. (Having played the Multiplayer Test I just couldnt wait an extra 10 days for the UK release date ;-) This game really is as good as everyone expected. With the 'film-style' flowing storyline of halflife combined with the atmosphere of Unreal and clear mission objectives like Quake2 it really has the best of all worlds. Yet it goes further: if you have a powerful graphics card/system you can put extra-quality textures and models on. This brings unprecidented realism to the game. You can see the creases in the material of the soldiers' jackets! The over-shiny cartoony graphics of the Quake3 engine has been stripped out in favour of a more realistic world. The flame thrower simply has to be seen (and used) to be believed!! What really impresses me about the game is the way it manages so well to introduce some quite surreal stuff (some hi-tech weapons and surprising enemies) but yet it explains it all so well that it really doesn't seem too out of place in the Nazi/WWII environment. I think I've said enough. If you're buying a game at all, make sure it's this one! No excuses!!

One of, if not THE best FPS game I have ever played. The single player game is incredible, with excellent graphics and music, the AI is very realistic and the objectives challenging and interesting. The multiplayer is just as good. With different types of soldiers to choose from (engineer, medic, officer, etc) you get different types of abilities/equipment. And since its based on the Q3 engine you wont get the same problems with cheaters that the Halflife engine is plagued with.
Fantastic game!

Used to be(still am)a big fan of Half Life, but this game is even better. I spent most of the x-mas period playing it. If you remember the 'old' Wolfenstein 3D, RtCW starts as you may have expected, in a castle full of nazis to waste and secret locations to be found. It only looks, sounds and feels a 100 times better. (pitty however that the germans speak english now and i missed the "achtung !" yelled out by the SS guys when they jump you). The graphics are spectacular and with each new mission you enter a completely new world (castles, dungeons, villages, gothic churches, dams, snow-covered fjords in Norway, etc). It's easy and intuitive to play, and it has the right level of complexity in that you can choose alternative strategies and routes to complete a mission. The weapons are good and typically there is enough ammo, except for the infrared sniper gun, which is to be used only when really necessary. The other thing I really liked is that at times you just charge and attack whilst at other times you need to be secretive and only use silent weapons. On the downside I don't like levels where you need to get by a supersoldier/boss. But then ofcourse to make up for it there are the nazi-babes, modelled it seems after some playboy pet (its shows !) and wearing tight black leather outfits, high-heeled boots as well as machineguns. The animated scenes between missions are average and it takes some time to load the next level, but that's just a minor point. The AI is probably not the best there is, but for me it's just right for this game. Recommended !!

At last Wolf returns, well worth waiting for, smooth graphics -frightening sound effects if you have surround sound - good variation in scenarios and plots. So much more realistic than the original but retaining the old blood & guts shoot'em up. Brilliant

Well it took them long enough and here it was, a possible contender to knock Half Life off the top spot - arguably it didn't - I think it did but very soon afterwards came Medal of Honour and it wasn't even worth arguing about anymore. RTCW was as you can imagine nothing like the original Wolfenstein game, this game was scary and in a very American way tried to mix WW2 reality with off world and super natural horror which for me was its let down. The engine and ambience was promising and it was certainly worth playing twice but after playing MOH it just seems a little bland. The Multiplay was great, I'll give it that but it is now, alas gathering dust underneath MOH add-ons.

STORY
You play as B.A. Blaskowitz, an American agent infiltrating nazi Germany in 1942. The Nazis are up to something, which leads you to discover that their obsession with the occult and supernatural has driven them to resurrect an ancient warrior, which will turn the tide of the war. Your mission is to track down Heinrich Himmler, a lead scientist and paranormal expert, and discover the true extent of the Nazis plans.

The story is simple, combining themes of supernatural forces and superstition with World War history. The twisted plans of the Nazis help bring the game to life, introducing players to the scum of the Nazi ranks; further allowing us to hate them even more than we do in our real life history.

GRAPHICS & SOUND
RTCW uses the supernatural setting to great effect, presenting players with foreboding castles, abandoned catacombs, war ravaged cities and experimental facilities. RTCW is at its strongest when taking players through the war-torn streets of Germany. Entire buildings have crumbled, barbed barracks line the roads and heavy artillery stands at every turn. The game showcases a grand scale, as the earlier levels take place within towering mountain regions, technically it looks brilliant and creates an immersive world.

The character models are impressive, especially when it comes to the creepy creations of the Nazi scientists. There are also a vast number of Nazi troopers, ranging from regularly infantry to flamethrower carrying behemoths. The animations really shine when it comes to the female Nazi operatives who use slick movements and evasive techniques to stay in the fight. The soundtrack is fit for a Hollywood movie and energises the gameplay.
