Return to Castle Wolfenstein
My general summary of Return to Castle Wolfenstein is GREAT! The missions are mixed, you can be doing a normal mission (say destroying a Nazi project or finding Nazi research), but then you find yourself blasting zombies left, right or centre! All that you want in a game! Killing zombies and Nazi’s at the same time… perfect!
Gameplay: The AI is brilliant. Trying to hit a Nazi whilst he is rolling and jumping for the alarm button is difficult. When you get him though you think to yourself ‘Come On!’. When you are blasting your ammo into a zombie with a huge axe and after about 20 rounds in his face he goes down, overwhelming satisfaction takes over, until you get clobbered round the head by one coming from behind! The best things about the game is that you can find yourself shooting zombies and Nazi’s at the same time, whilst the Nazi’s are shooting you and zombies and then the zombies are beating you and the Nazi’s up. Pure Mayhem! The only thing that is annoying is the last two weapons are slightly too futuristic for the game, but still fun!
Graphics: If you’ve got a decent graphics card the scenery is amazing! The detail taken on the people, guns and landscapes is amazing in Return to Castle Wolfenstein. Explosions look perfect. Facial detail is outstanding. You can see the scars on the faces of the Nazi’s who have been fighting zombies!The shredded bodies left behind by the zombies are SICK!
Sound: If you have Surround Sound it makes it all the better!You can listen in on the Nazi’s talking about what’s been happening from behind a wall in Return to Castle Wolfenstein. You can hear the screams of soldiers being ripped to shreds in the dungeons!The sound of stalking zombies from all over is wicked as well. Turn all your lights off and put the bass up on your subwoofer and you can feel them breathing down your neck. AWESOME!
