REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

Return to Castle Wolfenstein Screenshots



Overview:
The heart-stopping follow-up to one of the most revered PC games of all time, Return to Castle Wolfenstein uncovers Hitler's horrifying obsession with the occult, living dead and genetic mutations. As B.J. Blazkowicz, an Army Ranger recruited into the Office of Secret Actions (OSA), players infiltrate the twisted bowels of the Third Reich to battle horrific super-soldiers, zombies and mutants forged in the unearthly experiments of Heinrich Himmler. Built on the powerful QUAKE III Arena™ engine, Return to Castle Wolfenstein delivers fast-paced action and white-knuckle suspense. A frightening, action-packed adventure teeming with shocking paranormal experiments, nightmarish SS weaponry and bone chilling encounters with the Fuhrer's unrelenting warriors.

Story Setting:
It's 1943. War rages across the heart of Europe as the Nazi's sinister plot for global domination eradicates entire nations. The player assumes the role of B.J. Blazkowicz, an American soldier charged with single-handedly stopping Nazi research projects that threaten to turn the tide of the war. In the deepest recesses of Castle Wolfenstein, B.J. uncovers a dark plot, headed by Nazi general Heinrich Himmler, to raise the dead and create an army of Nazi "super soldiers." It's up to B.J. alone to save the world from the nightmarish Nazi threat.

Characters & Enemies:
As a single soldier against the Third Reich, the player must overcome overwhelming odds. Throngs of the Fuhrer's brainwashed soldiers and hordes of zombies join forces for the cause of evil and engulf the German landscape, clawing and firing at the player around every corner. The game features the most twisted and frightening enemies ever seen in a PC game, including: Nazi troopers and officers, mutants, X-Creatures, the undead and priestesses of the Occult.

Locations:
Return to Castle Wolfenstein transports players to Germany, circa 1943. Each setting has been created with unmatched detail and realism, based on real-world buildings, materials and environments. Ultra-realistic texturing recreates war-savaged European locales so real that players can almost smell the burning gunpowder and feel the broken glass under their feet.

Features:

  • Weapons - As B. J., players unleash hell against the Nazis with an arsenal of conventional arms such as machine guns, sniper rifles and flamethrowers as well as secret experimental weapons forged by the mad scientists of the Reich.

  • Technology -- Building on the revolutionary graphics, shader system, lighting, and terrain technology of the QUAKE III Arena™ engine, Return to Castle Wolfenstein introduces a number of technological additions. An all-new skeletal animation system delivers liquid smooth character movement, and an innovative new camera system captures ultra-realistic in game cut scenes. The advanced particle system creates lifelike smoke, fire and other visual effects as players ride vehicles and take over manned gun turrets in their battle to thwart Himmler's evil plans.

Release Date: 2002
