I’ve always been a fan of the Wolfenstein series – Wolf3D was my first FPS, Return to Castle Wolfenstein is one of my favourite games of all times and has the most solid multiplayer component ever to grace a shooter – but I was pretty dumbstruck when they announced a sequel. It’s been a while since the last game, gaming has changed quite a bit, and so have the mechanics and expectations; I’ll try and judge this on its own merit.
Having played both Wolfenstein 3D and Return to Castle Wolfenstein, I’m not sure what to think of this. There is that incessant, “What, they’re doing it again?” thing going, but then again, RtCW was a pretty decent shooter so long as you ignore the Second World War backdrop – and realism too, I suppose.
Ah well. Maybe this time, Hitler will show up with eight miniguns and a tesla-powered battlesuit. Riding a mecha. In space.
