It’s been nearly 10 years since Wolfenstein 3D forever popularized the first-person shooter, and at long last everyone’s favorite Nazi killer, 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 create an army of supersoldiers. Naturally, Blazkowicz is the only thing standing in the Nazis’ way, so he’s set behind enemy lines in an effort to end the madness.
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. Alas, pretty graphics and a great multiplayer game don’t quite make up for an exceptionally average single-player experience. –William Harms
