Three different development companies have spent an inordinate amount of time (and $9 million) in bringing this game to you. You will not be disappointed with the results. Return to Castle Wolfenstein is everything you could have expected. And then some.

As in the original Wolfenstein 3D game, the game that, along with Doom, invented the first-person shooter genre, players assume the role of William J ‘BJ’ Blazkowicz, the Allies’ bad boy of second World War espionage. The fate of the free world hangs in the balance as BJ battles against the sadistic machinations of a Nazi war machine bent on world domination. This latest sequel will reflect the same over-the-top comic book style of the original Wolfenstein. However, by using the graphics technology of the Quake 3 Arena engine, Return to Castle Wolfenstein will pull the player further into a chilling storyline filled with frightening tales of bio-engineering and the occult. Devotees of multiplayer action will be able to get online and frag it out within the unique Wolfenstein world.

In addition to an action-packed, story-driven, single-player experience, where players must infiltrate deep into the heart of the Third Reich, Return to Castle Wolfenstein’s multiplayer mode invites gamers to fine-tune their tactical skills in a series of combat scenarios. Players will join the fight as an axis or ally soldier and be challenged to intense, realistic campaigns such as storming beachheads, infiltrating military installations, holding strategic positions, and more. The game features multiple objectives spanning a variety of maps, including an Axis airbase, a war-torn German village and a secret Nazi laboratory. Return…features four different character classes (soldier, engineer, medic and lieutenant). Each class has unique attributes and the ability to access different ammunition and equipment that compliments their style of warfare.

If you’ve been here before, then the Return to Castle Wolfenstein is well worth the price of admission. id Software’s definitive first-person shooter is back – and this time it’s got knobs on.
