I've played this game probably over 5000 hours total since I first booted it up on my grandparents IBM Compatible 486 with Turbo (88hz) using the floppy drive.

I spent countless hours over the summer playing it til my grandpa wanted to puke from being sea-sick with all my turning around and checking walls for hiddent passages and rooms. I remember he would draw maps of the rooms and mark where he found treasure and health etc. It was always thrilling finding dog food and ammo hidden behind a Hitler portrait or giant Swastika. I always knew something big was about to happen whenever the brick color changed from grey to red or blue.

The high quality 3D graphics are only surpassed by the excellent sound effects and soundtrack. I HIGHLY recommend this game.

A really fun classic FPS game. However, it is extremely outdated. This game is only for people who will appreciate and enjoy it's significance in the world of gaming, or aren't extremely picky about spectacular graphics.

I recommend this game because even though it is outdated, it has that great nostalgic value that retro games always have, which makes it really fun. Also, there are only a few things in the world I love more than dead Nazis.
