Product Description

Platform:PlayStation 3

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.

I played the very first wolf 3D about 15 years ago, then Return to Castle Wolfenstein, which was fantastic, so I was expecting a lot from his game....

When I played the first few levels I was a little dissapointed, as it is a bit confusing and everything is pretty much thrown at you straight away....however, once you get used to the free roaming of the town and the weapons upgrade system, the game really comes into its own after about 2-3 hours play....

In fact I would say this is the best FPS I've played so far on the PS3...I can't wait to get back on it tonight.....I'm about 50% through the story mode....

The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is I think Return to Castle Wolf was slightly better storyline, in that nothing paranormal happened for a while, so it kept you guessing, plus it had a brilliant stealth level half way through.....that said I haven't finished this game as yet, so perhaps some suprises are in store.

Summing up, I would say buy this game, but persevere through the first few hours - it gets a lot lot better....

Anyone who has played Wolfenstein before will love this game, its a re-visited classic pc game I remember playing decades ago.

I've not played it online yet but the main game is good fun and features some new guns and tricks.

Maybe not for the very young as some of the gore is a bit too vivid and some of the monsters might frighten.

Myself and my father like to progress through games on weekends in a cooperated effort and after just completing Call of Juarez, decided it was time for another game.

The cover of the game case was attractive and very eye catching. Anyway, I knew I wanted to play Wolfenstein in high definition so I bagged it.

In starting up the game, it installed a bit of the game to the PS3's hard drive and then we were greeted by a high definition, simple yet appealing menu.
The start of the single player story shows an impressive cinematic cut-scene and I knew things would be different from Wolfenstein 3D.

But you don't want to know about all this - you want to know about the gameplay - so be it.

A lot of reviews have criticised this game but I can't see why. This is a seriously good game and this is coming from somebody who loved games like COD4, COD World at War - all highly praised First Person Shooter games and in my opinion, this is up there with that bunch.

But theres a twist... You may be startled to find you have control of some sort of strange powers. When I first discovered this feature I assumed that the rest of the game would be stupid - but it just isn't. You'll very quickly get used to these new features and they'll become an effective part of the game. You may also feel that these new features are too Warcraft-ey for a sinister game like Wolfenstein but they take away none of the atmosphere that we all love.

A part of the game I particularly liked was the hospital chapter - Nazi experimentation on humans in grimy hospitals leaves your hair standing on end. Other parts of the game, escaping collapsing Nazi factories with explosions and fire all around make you dizzy with excitement.

The weapons are very good to use.

.... this is the one. I only tend to play one game a year, previous candidates being Resistance Fall of Man, Orange Box, and the original Return to Castle Wolfenstein. Good trade off between good old "shoot 'em up" and puzzles. Game is not linear as you can choose the order of missions and weapon upgrades are purchased on the black market as and when you collect enough funds. You can't afford all the upgrades so choose wisely! Not yet finished but 73% through, 14 hours and counting.

A very quick review here but having never played any of the previous Wolfenstein games I wasn't sure what to expect and well lets say that I was a little underwhelmed.

Gameplay - the weaponry was implemented very well with the option to upgrade them with silencers, apertures etc paired with controls which are really responsive and tight, this led to zero gameplay frustrations.

Storyline - No idea what this was about (my own fault what with not playing the previous games). Character interactions was practically none existent. Walk upto them, click to engage them, they waffle on for a moment regarding your next task & blah blah blah. Now I know this isn't an RPG but I think a little more depth to the plot and interactions would have really enhanced the experience.

Graphics - Good, crisp and always bright with areas well illuminated so rarely did I find myself wandering about in the dark.

Overall a plug in & play game rather than taking you on a journey and engrossing you in its detail and atmosphere.

Being a fan of the classic Wolfenstein games, i couldnt wait to get this game, however, i'm not really sure what to make of it. The first impression of it is it a classic WWII FPS, however once the game develops its kinda more of a free-roam aspect to it. Its a good idea, however, you seem to find yourself watching the 'loading' screen alot of the time. The mission are a lot of fun and very tense, but a part of me feels that they have ruined it slightly with some of the supernatural foe you must battle.
Of the little online time i have played, i'm not too impressed. The levels are good, but theres not much option of games to play, or weapons to use. I wouldn't put it in the same league as games such as killzone 2, But as i said, i've only had little online game time.
