"Destroy the Nazis hierarchy as the famous Blazkowicz. Door opening and Nazi shooting. A classic, but dated - obviously."

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 However, it is extremely outdated.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I recommend this game because even though it is outdated, it has that great nostalgic value that retro games always have, which makes it really fun.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.
