Unless you are looking for a trip down memory lane, or if you want to experience the game that laid the foundation for quality first-person shooters, you might want to find another game to play.

In Wolfenstein, it’s you against the F here and his menacing henchman in an all-out battle through hallways and corridors of Nazi buildings. Indeed, the battles look the same as they did when they initially happened on the PC, which by modern standards makes them bland, colorless, and simple. The audio is just as unadorned with a few grunts, yells, and pounding music. The straightforward controls can become a bit frustrating as you try to strafe while moving your gun. This timeless classic certainly deserves a nostalgic try, but if you want a better shooter, check out id’s other masterpiece, Doom.

All in all, I can't really say that this title is that good. Sure, it's very faithful to the PC version, but a few minor tweaks to the level design should have been considered instead of taking the easy way out and making this a direct port. As it stands, the port is very good but the lack of music and the difficult to see enemies can make the game extremely frustrating.

While Doom is often credited with starting the first-person shooter revolution, it was actually id Software's 1992 release of Wolfenstein 3D for the PC that ultimately gave rise to games like Quake, Half-Life, and Unreal Tournament. Now, Wolfenstein 3D is available once again--this time on the Game Boy Advance. The GBA version is a perfect conversion of the PC original, but that fact alone may limit its appeal.

Dire qu'il faut acquérir Wolfenstein 3D est sans doute un bien grand mot tant celui-ci a mal vieilli depuis son apparition sur PC. C'est un titre qu'il convient cependant de découvrir si on n'y a jamais joué tout en sachant qu'il est désormais totalement dépassé et qu'il faut donc l'appréhender en connaissance de cause.

WOLFENSTEIN 3D jest to gra budząca wiele wspomnień. Jednak nie bardzo wyobrażam sobie możliwość czerpania z niej przyjemności, tak jak to było kiedyś...

It's a nostalgia trip, and nothing more than that. The classic game design is still intact in this not-terribly-impressive conversion, so it's still a bit of fun to blast away at Nazi soldiers and other bad guys on the Game Boy Advance...especially if you're one of those gamers that enjoys taking a stroll down memory lane. But the port as a whole is very disappointing considering this game doesn't push even half the detail of BAM's other first-person shooter, Ecks vs. Sever...and it'd be interesting to see if other homebrew Game Boy Advance developers could do this engine a bit more justice on the hardware. If you have this nagging itch to gooify WWII German soldiers, this GBA port might satisfy for a bit...but Doom, the other Id shooter on the GBA, is definitely the much better choice.
