In Wolfenstein you play B.J. Blazkowicz, a highly decorated member of the office of Secret Actions(OSA).
Wolfenstein was developed by Raven Software and published by Activision.
This is a good game, and it is a proof of how much guys at Raven are creative.
I believe the whole game can be summed up with one simple nickname I have made for it. Hexenstein.
Like Hexen this is an FPS with a hub system, meaning the game is not entirely linear. Plus there are dozens of secrets scattered through out the levels, including something from a Raven's game Heretic. The Tome Of Power. This is a really neat homage to Heretic! You will use the tomes not to enchant your weapons this time, but to upgrade your magic abilities.
The enemy AI is really awesome, they will use everything they can against you and it really works! It's not just a gimmick, you'll die a lot! Like in Hexen enemies do repopulate.
Then there are things which I didn't liked, like regenerating health and boss fights. But really, when did the Wolfenstein series had good boss fights? And then there's head bobbing which is annoying too.
I also didn't liked the game's save system, it's not traditional in any way and if more than one player uses the same PC for single player there will be trouble. Also there's a complete lack of the knife.
But it's a really good entry in the series and I feel like Raven Software did a good job.
As a big fan of Hexen I have wondered how it would look if it was done today, and this is the answer.
Highest Rated (5 agree) 9/10
Wolfenstein was definately a good game. The AI was very agressive and smart, which I found made the enemies seem almost real. The graphics a very pretty, which you'd expect from IDTech 4. I was solely disappointed by the new meothd of storing data for this game. Unlike other IDTech 4 games Wolfenstein is not mod friendly. It is anoying, but I forgive it for the game itself. The weapons were very nice. They had that feel to them that you want in a game. Also, the upgrading system was pretty good…
