Wolfenstein 3D is widely known as the very first First Person Shooter that changed gaming forever. One of the most popular shareware games ever for 3 straight years in a row, Wolfenstein 3D puts you in the pants of BJ Blackowicz, an american prisoner of war in a Nazi dungeon where you fight off guards, SS, dogs, zombies, and more assorted nazis! It is a gem every FPS player should have in their games collection!
Wolfenstein 3D , known as the "grandfather of First-person shooters" (technically it was Hovertank 3D) paved the way of a new genre of shooter games in the 90's that will later on inspire the creation of DOOM and the FPS genre as a whole.
Wolfenstein 3D consists of 6 episodes chronicling the adventures of an OSS agent named B.J Blaskowicz, his exploits include foiling nazi chemical operations,escaping a heavily guarded castle, killing a mad scientist and putting a stop to his mutants before finally storming the fuhrer's bunker (alone) and gunning him down into a bloody mush.
The overall design of Wolfenstein 3D is remarkable for it's era with detailed sprites and unique enemy death sequences (the death camera after boss fights is a fun to watch.) difficulty is dependent on how one plays the game, damage is quasi-realistic with point-blank hits dealing fatal consequences (but not that grave).
Wolfenstein 3D was inspired by 2 Apple computer stealth games "Castle Wolfenstein" and "Beyond Castle Wolfenstein.
a prequel standalone mission pack called "Spear of Destiny" was released and followed a single linear progression of levels instead of episodes.
The game that started it all.
a perfect nostalgic trip back to a simpler time, when you didn't need fancy graphics to reel in a good crowd :)
The grandfather of FPS, but Doom still is better
There's no need to enter a review. Just play it. You won't be disappointed.
My childhood! :D I enjoyed this game so much.
beloved game of my chlidhood :D
While it is the start of the popular FPS genre I really don't think it deserves a 9 after how very basic the game is, Doom added the needed complexity to the FPS genre.
This...Is just AWESOME! IT START THE FPS GENRE,AND AS A BONUS YOU GOT TO KILL NAZIS! It should be called "DOOMED NAZI Simulator" with how epic it is
The FPS that started it all, one of the games I grew up with, and still enjoy playing Wolfenstein 3D at this time.
