The addition of some sort of tie-in to the new game is nice to see too, for those of you that plan on picking it up. There's a lot of content in the game too, and for the price you're paying, I'd say it's certainly worth checking out, even for long time fans that have already played the game to death.
Wolfenstein 3-D remains fun after all these years. If you've never played it, download immediately and see what spawned the first-person shooter genre. If it's been a while since you hung out with William "BJ" Blazkowicz you'll likely be surprised at how amusing the Nazi shooting gallery still is. The action is satisfying and there are plenty secrets to find. It's definitely dated and flawed, but this is a game you play for its nostalgic value.
It is hard to recommend this game, despite how enjoyable it can be. It is offensive, violent, archaic, complicated, bland, and repetitive. If you can appreciate its retro qualities, however, $5 is a good price!
