Erövra labyrintliknande slott med vapen i hand. Strålande enligt recensenten.

Wolfenstein 3-D is a major blast! It's one of those rare games that's simple is design, easy to control and a heck of a lot of fun to play. You get all that and world war, too.

Les amateurs du genre peuvent se ruer sur cette cartouche, les autres doivent absolument l'essayer. Quand on commence, on ne peut plus s'arrêter !

Ups, ein brutales Ballerspiel, das wirklich Suchtfaktor hat! Wolfenstein gehört zu den Spielen, die einen für Stunden an den Bildschirm fesseln und auch nach mehrfachem Durchspielen noch Spaß machen. Jede Extrawaffe, jeden Gegner und jeden Geheimgang zu entdecken reizt mich immer wieder und da das wirklich schwierig ist, steht das Super Nintendo bei mir immer unter Hochspannung. Die Grafik ist im Stil der 3D-Sequenzen aus Jurassic Park gehalten, nur wesentlich flotter. Zwar mußten dadurch die Details etwas heruntergeschraubt werden, was aber zu Gunsten des Spielspaßes gerne in Kauf genommen wird. Auch der Sound ist gut gelungen und so setzt sich Wolfenstein 3D für mich in der Sparte Action-Spiele in die oberste Spitze. Wegen der etwas makaberen Hintergrundstory wird dieses Modul in Deutsch aber wohl nicht erscheinen.

משחק טוב אבל לא מדהים. איבד משהו מהברק שלו במעבר ההיסטורי לסופר-נינטנדו.

As one of my favorite games on the PC, this Super NES version almost has everything in the sense of the game play. As we know Nintendo has been known to be the "no violence" company. Many of the "bad" pictures abd decorations has been taken out. Less gore takes out the game. The rotation and scaling may not be good as the PC, but it's a good translation. Sound effects are ok. But, I still like this one.

This PC cult favorite isn't quite the same on the SNES (i.e., no blood, Nazis, or savage guard dogs). While changes will amuse some players, most will be frustrated by its poor graphics and watered-down "guts".

Virtually everything about Wolfenstein 3D seems to have been hurriedly and haphazardly designed. More than once while I played, I wondered how id Software could have rebounded to create my beloved Doom series. Games that featured innovative and unpredictable enemies in a variety of different settings. Games that weren’t afraid to shock players by having foes emerge from hidden passageways BEHIND their character. Games that essentially were everything Wolfenstein 3D was not. I have to admit that I found the final three boss levels to be exhilarating and suspenseful. The rest of the game? Absolutely forgettable.
