With so much history behind the Wolfenstein series, it can be quite difficult to live up to the legacy of the games that came before you. The latest entry in the series does a fantastic job of this, from its gorgeous graphics to its solid story line; everything is well thought out and well executed. With the potential for additional multiplayer maps thrown in, this is a great value overall.

Wolfenstein has perfectly positioned itself with a strategic release date where the game has no real competition. But when games like the new HALO and Modern Warfare show up I can see Wolfenstein slipping into obscurity, so act fast and get your copy today. Wolfenstein is an awesome blend of old-school memories and next-gen ideas assembled into a rewarding game experience you can’t afford to miss.

To say I was surprised with the end product is an understatement – I thought many of the earlier videos of the title lacked polish and class. What has shipped out is something completely different. An engaging single player experience that offers plenty of replay value, and a multiplayer component that has tonnes of upgrades, ranks and the rest, meld together into a AAA title.

Mäh, schon wieder Zweiter Weltkrieg, muss das sein? Ja, es muss! Vor allem, weil dieser Zweite Weltkrieg mit dem anderen Zweiten Weltkrieg ungefähr so viel zu tun hat wie Herrn Becksteins Vorstellung von Computerspielen mit der Realität. Und da wir gerade bei Beckstein und gemeinen Spielen sind: Für Deutschland verzichten die amerikanischen Entwickler auf unnötige Gewaltexzesse sowie verfassungsfeindliche Runen und Symbolen. Das Spiel funktioniert aber auch wunderbar ohne derlei plumpe Effekthascherei und überzeugt durch gute Inszenierung, kreative Ideen und eine stimmungsvolle Soundkulisse (inklusive guter deutscher Synchronsprecher). Wolfenstein ist vielleicht kein sehr moderner Shooter, auf jeden Fall aber ein sehr guter!

Wolfenstein for the Xbox 360 is riveting and thoroughly action-packed shooter that takes the series in a different and better direction. That said there are things that really would have made this a truly amazing title but with all this game has to offer you will be pleasantly surprised by this worthwhile FPS looking for a different kind of World War II shooter.

Wolfenstein is a good shooter. There are some missed opportunities and living too much in the past but don't let that ruin the fun parts of the game which outnumber the bad. There won't be any awards for innovation or turning the FPS genre on its head, but that won't matter when you are shooting super natural Nazis with WWII weaponry. Wolfenstein, in all of its hail of bullets, reminds us why shooters are fun to begin with.

Wolfenstein shoots for something different and manages to hit the target well enough to do the series and the genre justice. While some missions are by the number, you will find yourself enjoying the action and supernatural twist that will keep you playing to the very end and well into the night thanks to the online multiplayer. This is definitely a Must Have for any FPS fan.

Even though its held back by a lack of unrealised theatrics, Wolfenstein’s still one of the only games that lets you dish death to the Nazis in bold and imaginative ways.

Wolfenstein might not change the face of gaming this time around, but will grab hold of gamers looking for a solid FPS adventure. With classic enemy’s and guns combined with the paranormal, Wolfenstein conjures up something that will have you looking forward to picking up the controller again and again; a noble accessory this season to any Xbox 360.

If you're into WWII shooters -- and judging by the sales of every single Call of Duty title ever, you are -- but you're looking for something with a little twist to it -- which, judging by the sales of twisty straws, you are -- and you don't mind the color green -- and judging by the number of Irish people in the world, you don't -- you should get yourself a copy of Wolfenstein. If, however, you're a straight-straw-drinkin', WWII-hatin', Englishman of some stripe or other, then go ahead and stick to other, less-awesome shooters.

"Wolfenstein" continua com a tradição da franquia e apresenta uma aventura muito bem realizada, que envolve o jogador em sua campanha principal, mesmo com a história batida. Pena que os desenvolvedores não tenham dado a devida importância ao componente online, o que deixaria o título mais completo e fresco por mais tempo. Assim, é um jogo com prazo de validade, que apesar de competente, não deixa marcas profundas.

It doesn't always look fantastic, which occasionally reminds you that this is a heavily modified version of the same technology that powered Doom 3. But the gameplay both online and off is solid enough to make Wolfenstein worth checking out if you're a shooter fan on the hunt for something new. It's familiar enough in spots, but the way the Veil powers function gives everything just enough of a tweak to feel exciting.

Spot-on Wolfenstein atmosphere combines with gleefully vicious weaponry to serve up a tasty smoothie of good old-fashioned Nazi-frying. It lacks in the new idea department, but it has fun aplenty.

I did get to play some Objective maps which were far more interesting; this is the standard "one team defends, one team attacks" sort of deal, with staged objectives. The attacking team has to first build a thing that gives access to another thing that lets them take control of yet another thing and the defending team has to stop them. Again, it's nothing new but the weapons and powers are interesting enough that, if you put in the work, the reward is there. But it probably won't make you forget about Modern Warfare or Halo 3 or Killzone 2 or whatever online FPS you're currently hooked on.

Wolfenstein rischiava davvero di diventare vittima del nome altisonante che si porta dietro. Per fortuna i Raven hanno infuso un soffio di vita nelle vecchie ossa dell’agente Blazkowicz, restituendoci un’esperienza ludica tutto sommato soddisfacente. Non siamo di fronte a un capolavoro e dubito fortemente che qualcuno si aspettasse il contrario, ma i fan della serie e in generale gli amanti degli FPS “zero-materia-grigia” troveranno pane per i loro denti. Sconsigliato invece a chi è alla ricerca di una qualche novità eclatante o di un titolo in grado di stupire sotto il profilo tecnico: in tal caso, meglio rivolgiate la vostra attenzione altrove.

Der Singleplayer von Wolfenstein ist recht gut gelungen, der Multiplayer versagt leider ein wenig. Fans müssen sich wohl gedulden, bis die ersten Mods von der Community raus sind. Ansonsten passen die Steuerung und der Sound, der wieder durch orchestrale Klänge überzeugen kann. Die Grafik ist bedingt durch die etwas veraltete Engine nicht mehr ganz zeitgemäß, allerdings haben die Entwickler doch viel rausgeholt und mit Liebe zum Detail eine nette Welt erschaffen. Mein Fazit: Ein solider Shooter mit schräger Story, der Multiplayer wird wohl noch ein wenig Zeit brauchen.

Wolfenstein returns to rekindle a little of its Nazi killing magic in it's first next-generation offering. Not only does Wolfenstein recreate a little dab of this magic, its embraces the world of magic and the supernatural to give this old standard a fresh perspective. The new dimension of Nazi slaughtering weapons and powers turns Wolfenstein from your average run-of-the-mill shooter into something a little more. Like a few other classic franchises like Quake, and Doom, Wolfenstein struggles a little, but ultimately holds its own in a genre that has surpassed linear storytelling and simplistic shoot em’ up action. Wolfenstein might not be as wild as its 3D debut, but it can still give put a childlike grins on your face as you blow through the single player campaign and hit up a few multiplayer matches. This one is for the straight up shooter fans, nothing more, nothing less.

Uiteindelijk is Wolfenstein een vrij standaard shooter geworden met enkele leuke toevoegingen. De verschillende vijanden bieden genoeg afwisseling, net als de aparte wapens dat doen. De standaard Tweede Wereldoorlog-wapens zijn gelukkig aan te passen waardoor je niet weer de gehele game enkel met een saaie MP40 loopt te schieten. Het free roaming-gedeelte in Isenstadt is leuk verzonnen, maar voegt uiteindelijk niet meer toe dan veel herhalende stukken gameplay. Wolfenstein zal je niet het gevoel geven dat je achter je console of pc moet gaan zitten om de game in een keer uit te spelen, maar het geeft je ook niet het gevoel dat je jouw geld hebt weggegooid. Het is gewoon een game die erg leuk is om te spelen.

Wolfenstein might not hold up to Call of Duty in terms of sales, but Activision’s other WWII shooter still has plenty of interesting ideas to please any fan. With powerful weapons at your disposal, supernatural powers with the help of The Veil, and plenty of eerie Nazi soldiers to kill, the fun never stops. The multiplayer feels like a letdown mostly in part to the lack of more modes and options, but there is still plenty to enjoy with what is available. Wolfenstein could have used a bit more polish in some of the rougher areas, but what is left is still incredibly entertaining.

In conclusion this new Wolfenstein isn't going to win a single award for originality, Nazis, even super-powered ones, are hardly underused gaming bad guys after all. Instead its back to basics approach will provide a welcome shot in the arm for anyone yearning for a good old fashioned shooter. High def graphics aside this could almost be five or even ten years old in terms of game design but it matters not a jot because its also genuinely fun to play. I sort of wish I could score it higher than I have, it's been one of the more enjoyable games I've played lately, but push the score up much further and I'd be saying it's better than certain other, more inventive titles out there and that wouldn't really be fair. Rest assured though, if you're after an FPS that's more interested in putting a smile on your face than making you think then there's not much better on the shelves at the moment.

Wolfenstein is een goede shooter. Geen geweldige shooter, maar evenmin een ondermaatse en hetzelfde kan gezegd worden van het online multiplayerluik.

While Wolfenstein is solid at its foundation, the upper floors are a bit shaky due to its PC breeding and some of the conceptual choices made in the gameplay’s architecture. Had the visuals been taken up a notch, and if B.J. would have been a bit more of a bystander in the Veil portions, Wolfenstein could have been one of the elites. But as it sits, Wolfenstein is a solid shooter that fans of its predecessors will enjoy. Those gamers into the more omnipotent style of player-character should also give Wolfenstein a hard look.

Wolfenstein's Veil powers and the pseudo-sandbox city of Isenstadt make the game an entertaining ride, though poor AI and frustrating bosses hold it back from greatness.

All in all it’s a pretty decent game with a nice score and some great sound design too...which doesn’t carry over to multiplayer unfortunately...which is only fun if you like hearing the same gun going off over and over again while shooting below giant coloured triangles...I quite liked the single player though Jung – I just can’t work out why it’s called “Wolfenstein”...I mean...not much really resembles the old classic..

Wolfenstein is a great singleplayer game, bolstering great bosses and an interesting story. But it doesn't satisfy the multiplayer desire many were expecting.

Xbox 360Gaming Age
Basically, don't pick up Wolfenstein for the multiplayer, especially if you're hoping for some type of Return to Castle Wolfenstein experience out of it. It's fun, and worth checking out, but hardly competitive or well polished. Instead, you'll be buying this game primarily for the single player experience, which isn't without it's own set of faults, but still manages to be fun despite that. I enjoyed it even amidst all my griping, and I think FPS fans will get a kick out of it too. If nothing else, it helps close that gap between the major releases in the genre later this year, and it's certainly worth a rental or a possible purchase.

The noticeably well-conceived single-player, intense boss fights and a solid multiplayer keep this one in tact. Otherwise it's the usual action you can get from most FPS titles.

Wolfenstein comes so close to being a really good game, but just falls short. The fact that it came near its former greatness is almost more disappointing than if it had been terrible; with a few original ideas, this could have been the must-have shooter of the summer. Instead, Wolfenstein offers a weekend or so of entertainment, but will quickly be forgotten in the onslaught of triple-A titles coming later this year. There was definitely something comforting about returning to that castle, but nostalgia alone is not enough to make Wolfenstein worth a purchase.

Un juego recomendable para los más fanáticos del género que seguro se divertirán de lo lindo pese a sus carencias, que son no destacar notablemente en nada y resultar demasiado genérico y repetitivo, algo que llevando el nombre de una saga tan mítica es menos perdonable, pero que una vez al mando y cuando peguemos cuatro tiros nos olvidaremos y disfrutaremos, un buen aperitivo para ir calentando para la prometedora campaña de juegos que en otoño e invierno nos espera.

Wolfenstein, pur senza eccellere, riesce a ritagliarsi un personalissimo spazio nel marasma di shooter in prima persona presenti al momento sul mercato. I fattori concorrenti alla sua valutazione sono però contrastanti (rispetto alle aspettative) e ci hanno lasciati spiazzati: una divertente e longeva campagna single player riesce a mantenere costante l’attenzione e l’interesse del giocatore, risultando più attraente del comparto multiplayer, forse fin troppo sicuro di poggiare su solide basi. Il verdetto è, in definitiva, più che discreto: un’ottima alternativa alla costante mancanza d’azione estiva, in attesa del più prolifico periodo autunnale.

Wolfenstein's plot is little more than an excuse for you to revisit the titular Wolfenstein castle and cause unnecessary mass destruction, but even without the added magical powers, Wolfenstein is built on a solid foundation and packed with hectic action. The game's "summer movie" aesthetic and well-rounded multiplayer make it an enjoyable alternative to the otherwise straightforward Nazi-killing genre. Shooting occult-powered bullets through a dimensional barrier? That's just for fun.

Wolfenstein proves that even as first-person shooters progress, there is still plenty of room for traditional shooting unhindered by modern frills. Big bosses, crazy weapons, and exciting scripted firefights are the focal point of this nutty tale. It's also an ample one if you take on all the side missions and scour environments for intelligence, hidden tomes, and secret money stashes. Yet while it's pleasingly old-fashioned, the unimpressive AI, aging technology, and general lack of refinement make this sequel feel like a missed opportunity. But there are enough great battles here to keep you entertained, so while Wolfenstein may be the video game equivalent of a B movie, it's the kind of mindless merriment that shooter fans can get behind.

Hach, das tut mal gut! Keine Schleicheinlagen, keine Deckung, keine Lüftungsschächte und keine wehenden Stars and Stripes bei traurigen Trompeten-Soli. Wolfenstein ist erfrischend simple Shooteraction mit viel Offensiv-Krawumms im Stile von Serious Sam: Scheiß auf die Ballistik, Standardegner gehen auch nach einem Treffer aus gefühlten zwei Kilometern zuverlässig zu Boden - ja, es ist hohl, aber auf fröhliche Weise hohl. Aber dieser Segen ist natürlich auch gleichzeitig Fluch: Wolfenstein ist ein reiner Shooter ohne weitere Ansprüche, mit dumpfer Gegner-KI und einer Story, die bestenfalls nicht der Rede wert ist - das mag mittlerweile vielleicht zu wenig sein. Davon abgesehen haben es die Entwickler meiner Meinung nach auch mit der Schleier-Stärke übertrieben: Das Ding zu verlassen ist eigentlich kaum mal nötig, es bietet viel zu viele offensichtliche Vorteile.

Wolfenstein does bring a lot of enjoyable material to the table, but it never follows through with the classic series experience all that often. Although there are frequent throwbacks to the original game, these occur too seldom to feel like a true Wolfenstein 3D successor. I feel it necessary to mention that I did have the game glitch on me at a save point, utterly ruining all of my save data for the game. This shouldn't stop you from playing, as I am the only person, as far as I can tell, that has experienced such an error. So despite the watered down story and distressingly flawed multiplayer experience, Wolfenstein remains a good game with much to offer any shooter fan.

Wolfenstein is a good first-person shooter, but everything it does right is done so much better by other titles that it becomes hard to recommend. Fans of the series will appreciate the title as an addition to the franchise, but others may find it a suitable time waster at best.

Overall, Wolfenstein is a competent shooter. It doesn’t really do anything to break the mold, however, there are definitely some fun moments and you should enjoy going through the campaign. The difficulty curve seems to be pretty good and shouldn’t frustrate gamers who don’t have much experience in this genre. It also came out at the perfect time before any of the really big shooters hit the market. I would definitely reccommend giving this game a try although you might want to rent it first to see whether you like it or not.

Bij Wolfenstein hink je constant op twee gedachten. Soms biedt het spel zoveel nazi’s en vuurkracht dat je even vergeet dat de Tweede Wereldoorlog allang voorbij is, op andere momenten zou je B.J. Blazkowicz het liefst zelf een kogel door zijn kop jagen nadat je voor de zoveelste door dezelfde straat in Isenstadt moet lopen. Toch kunnen we niet ontkennen dat we het grootste gedeelte van Wolfenstein met plezier hebben gespeeld. Een degelijke aanvulling op een klassieke serie.

Ultimately, Wolfenstein is a decent shooter full of explosions, machine guns and plenty of drama. Just don't expect it to wow you.

Bij Wolfenstein hink je constant op twee gedachten. Soms biedt het spel zoveel nazi’s en vuurkracht dat je even vergeet dat de Tweede Wereldoorlog allang voorbij is, op andere momenten zou je B.J. Blazkowicz het liefst zelf een kogel door zijn kop jagen nadat je voor de zoveelste door dezelfde straat in Isenstadt moet lopen. Toch kunnen we niet ontkennen dat we het grootste gedeelte van Wolfenstein met plezier hebben gespeeld. Een degelijke aanvulling op een klassieke serie.

So is it worth your time? Sure, if you’ve got a hankering for some low-grade, balls-to-the-wall, derivative fire fights. But is it worth paying full price for? Not in my books – give this one a rent instead. Clock it over the weekend and follow it up with a salad to balance things out. If you’re still hankering for more, by all means purchase it – but best to try before you buy.

With almost a decade between installments, it's impossible to argue that id is trying to milk the Wolfenstein license. Yet this also means that a lot of evolution has gone on in the genre. It's admirable that Raven Software recognized this with Wolfenstein, but you can't help but wish that they developed the kernel of the ideas in this game into something more. As it is, this new Wolfenstein comes off as an engaging, though otherwise forgettable, shooter.

Das neue Wolfenstein ist ein solider Ego-Shooter, dank Schleierdimension und eigenwilligem Thema. In der Geschichte der berühmtberüchtigten Spieleserie ist die jüngste Episode aber höchstens eine Fußnote wert. Zu ermüdend ist der Spielablauf, zu einfallslos wird das Potenzial abgeschöpft: Die pseudo-offene Spielwelt wirkt größtenteils unglaubwürdig, und trotz verrückter Okkultistenspinner fallen die wenigen Höhepunkte unspektakulär aus. Dabei ließe sich in dem Szenario grandioser Blödsinn anstellen und erklären. Aber den Entwickler ist offensichtlich nichts eingefallen. Die Ballereinlagen machen zwar durchaus Spaß, erreichen aber nie die Qualität aktueller Top-Titel. Allein der Nostalgiefaktor lässt Wolfenstein stellenweise als Shooter alter Schule durchgehen.

There are many first-person shooters on the market that offer a package similar to Wolfenstein's. Some are better, thanks to originality and sheer polish, but there are plenty of out there that are worse. Players who are attached to the franchise won't be burned if they happen to pick the game up, and most shooter fans will be able to squeeze some enjoyment out of it. It's hard to imagine the multiplayer mode keeping much traction as the game ages, though, so look at the game as a short term investment. Does the world need a hero like BJ Blazcowicz these days? We're not entirely convinced, but there's always room for Nazis.

In the end this is a by the numbers shooter with slick graphics, and ample opportunity to shoot supercharged Nazis. It's not going to win any awards but it's worth checking out if you’re looking for a weekend to pass the time shooting everyone's favorite bad guys.

There's nothing explicitly wrong with the game, but it's too simple, lacks depth, doesn't have a compelling storyline and overall doesn't stand out of the crowd in any aspect. The PC version also suffers from simplification compared to other offerings on the platform and for a Triple-A title this game just comes short. If you really want to check this one out, wait for it to appear in bargain bins.

Avec une telle licence, on s'attendait à un hit en puissance. Il faudra se contenter d'un bon petit jeu d'action. Wolfenstein est sympathique, dynamique et prenant mais n'arrive jamais à surprendre, à se démarquer de la concurrence. On pourra également lui reprocher des allers-retours pesants, un certain manque d'originalité et une réalisation parfois légère. Les fans peuvent se laisser tenter, les autres doivent guetter le bac occasion.

the production values are high here, but the funky weapons weren’t really enough for me to get over the fact it’s still a WW2 game about Nazis, and I’m all Nazi’ed out Baj, 6.5/10 from me.

Wolfenstein doesn’t look bad, it just looks dated and the same can be said of its gameplay: flat, uninspired corridor gaming that occasionally breaks into a minor challenge before relapsing again, with a cursory multiplayer that’s as much an afterthought as this sentence. It’s marginally more than a passable first-person shooter, which for the Wolfenstein series and id heritage, isn’t passable at all.

With only genre basics in its bag of tricks, and hobbled at every turn by clumsy implementation, in a gaming landscape that already offers Battlefield 1943 and Call of Duty: World at War's Nazi Zombies mode, Wolfenstein's bargain basement charms are of limited appeal.

Sammanfattningsvis är Wolfenstein är ett virrigt spel som inte vilket ben det ska stå på, och som inte riktigt vet om det vill vara gammaldags och retro-kitchigt eller nymodigt och tidsenligt. Blandningen känns ofta märklig och trots stabil spelkontroll och god miljövariation lyfter aldrig riktigt Ravens spel. Vissa av banorna är riktigt underhållande dock och här finns ett par vapen som jag verkligen gillar (plasmageväret som förvandlar nazister till skelett på en millisekund är extra stenhårt). I slutändan är BJ:s senaste insats en besvikelse som inte lyckas leva upp till den höga standard som Return to Castle Wolfenstein satte...

We're currently in an era that frowns upon linear level structure in gaming, where a clear and concise 'point A to B' approach seems old fashioned and boring. However, more often than not the opposite is true, open worlds and large play areas are extremely difficult to execute with any degree of success and shouldn't be attempted when your game's strengths lie elsewhere. So in the end Wolfenstein turned out to be a fairly enjoyable if flawed shooting experience, one that coasts on its historical setting mixed with the supernatural, and one that should have remained strictly linear. OK, so you may be wondering about the multiplayer aspect of the game, and whether or not it holds up to the brilliant Return to Castle Wolfenstein. The answer to that is pretty simple, think of what Quake 4 multiplayer was to Quake 3, and you get the idea.

In Wolfenstein, Raven has taken the basics of the classic FPS tradition and added some interesting and entertaining elements, creating a flawed but fun and simple shooter that fans of the series will enjoy. Unfortunately, 21st century shooter players are likely to be turned off by its myriad little problems. But the series has come a long way since ‘92, and this new installment has the series headed in the right direction.

Despite all this, I'm left craving a sequel. The sci-fi/historical premise still interests me and the franchise has had more hits than misses in its lifetime. However, players who have never experienced Wolfenstein before this game will probably be wary of future installments and I can't blame them. This one just wasn't up to snuff. The multiplayer barely justifies its existence and the single-player fails to offer up any fresh ideas. This franchise was on the ball earlier this decade with Return and Enemy Territory but it's now fallen behind its competition.

Pas franchement fabuleux, Wolfenstein est loin de pouvoir tenir tête à une concurrence devenue véritablement féroce dans le domaine du FPS. Celui par qui tout a commencé aura donc bien du mal à se trouver une petite place sur nos étagères déjà soumises à rude épreuve. Bourrin au possible, le bébé de Raven nous offre un gameplay primaire malheureusment plombé par une structure bancale, par une mise en scène fadasse et par une réalisation décevante. On regrette également le manque de soin apporté au multijoueur, franchement rachitique.

The action does become more engaging as the single-player campaign progresses. More outlandish, difficult enemies crop up, and points late in the game almost conjure the old spell once cast by Wolfenstein 3D. Still, the effect is dispelled once again by the multiplayer, which feels jerky and unbalanced.

It is a shame to see a game that held such great promise fail to meet our expectations. If only the developers would have kept some of the original charm and built upon that, rather than trying to bridge the gap between old-school and modern gaming.

While playing through the game, I couldn’t help but feel like it was constantly taking a step forward and then a step back. The weapons are very good, but combat becomes tedious. The Veil is an interesting concept, but executed poorly since it doesn’t really evolve past abilities that we’ve come to expect from games at this point. Boss battles, a series staple, range from being humdrum to controller-throw inducing. For everything that Wolfenstein does right, it does another thing wrong – many times painfully so. Series veterans will get something out of it thanks to some obligatory references to the past and cameos from series villains, but most will find this a boring, shallow experience.

Il n'y a pas de secret: si j'ai mis trois mois à me motiver pour terminer cet épisode de Wolfenstein (et que je n'ai pas hésité une seule seconde à interrompre ma partie en cours pour faire Arkham Asylum à la place - 2 fois), c'est tout simplement parce qu'il est ennuyeux, rébarbatif, et d'un clacissisme convenu de bout en bout. Alors certes, ce n'est pas épouvantable, mais c'est franchement médiocre et le multi catastrophique n'inspire pas la sympathie. Pour un Wolfenstein on était décemment en droit d'en attendre plus.
