Return to Castle Wolfenstein is a first-person shooter and a reboot of Wolfenstein 3D. The game puts the player in the combat boots of Blazkowicz, who will first have to escape the castle and report back to his superiors, and afterwards restart the hunt for the SS Paranormal Division. This division was founded by Heinrich Himmler and is trying to find the grave of Saxon warlord Heinrich I to bring him back to life. The player's arsenal includes among others a Luger, MP 40 submachine gun, Mauser rifle with sniper scope, flamethrower, dynamite and grenades.
The game also features a multiplayer component in which players are split into Axis and Allies sides with each a set of objectives to complete.
Return to Castle Wolfenstein is one of my all-time favorite games. I'm only talking about the single player part, as I don't care about multiplayer mode.
The cinematic portions of the game are real fun. Sure, there is no subtlety, but that's not the point of this game. This game is about shooting Nazi AND Nazi-created monsters. There are many surprises throughout the game and overall it was much fun.
I give it 9 out of 10. A classic.
