Brings back memories of playing this on Windows 95 back in the 90's. The only downside is I can't seem to get the Xbox 360 cotroller working the same as it does on the Xbox Live port of the game.

While it wasn't the "first" first person shooter in existence (you have to go further back for that), it was the one that definitely set itself apart and turned a few heads. Wolfenstein 3D has the fast paced action that anyone into retro shooters loves, but I can't deny that the maze-like design does get old in the later levels, and it definitely makes navigating the levels a tedious chore after awhile. However, if you can get over that, the game can be definitely a fun time, and it shows how technology was getting better for more 3D experiences at the time.

The real enemy of this game would be the controls and the menus. A good game that did not age well, basically. For a better experience of the same game I suggest getting Doom 2's IWAD, Zandronum, and the Wolfendoom total conversion mod.

Also for some reason you fight the good guys, dunno what's up with that.

The real birth of FPS, sure there were some things befre, particularly from ID, but this is where the mechanics of play and engine really started to come together.

Amazing game. The controls are a bit weird, to look and move at once. Okay it's an old game, and WW2 themed, but why did every corridor need atleast 10 portrait of Hitler? Why not more

I give 11 secret stuff behind Hitler portrait outta 10 Weird knife animation.

I find that the right way to play this game is to play how it was intended. Get into a hard enough difficulty level, and play it without abusing the save function. You have a finite number of lives. That's how many attempts you get at an episode.

As far as I know, it's the only FPS that attempts that. It can be quite an unforgiving game. If you fail to see the random guard behind a door before you get into a room, one or two shots at close range can end your life and force you to restard with a simple gun.

Wolf3D is still a very, very, great game. It's beautiful in simplicity, is still challenging, and a must play.
