A classic for sure. My personal favorite WWII game....it's historically accurate in my book.

Play If: You love shooting nazis, love shooting zombies, love ID games, are in love with old school shooters

Don't Play If: You need shooters to be more "modern", need amazing graphics (in its defense this game was a graphical masterpiece in its day), like historically accurate WWII games, think shooters need regenerating health

An absolute classic. You return into the roll of B.J. Blazkowicz, the man who was born to kill nazis. Choose between stealth or mayhem in this paranormal shooter with a Nazi-themed Indiana Jones feeling to it.

Powered by id's Quake 3 technology and released in 2001, Gray Matter's Return to Castle Wolfenstein features a tremendous campaign spanning over 25 levels across numerous missions. Soaking rich in atmosphere and modded to support current widescreen resolutions, the campaign is an excellent precursor to 2014's Wolfenstein A New Order.

Despite it's age the game plays perfectly. Combat at times is brutal and difficult. The AI is a great challenge and surpasses many a modern title. Weapons are inventive and feature what be may be the most well implemented chain gun ever to grace a video game. The game falls far short of New Order's stealth mechanics but the combat is so over the top satisfying that I doubt anyone would notice.

Gray Matter Interactive developed Return to Castle Wolfenstein. The studio was acquired by Activision in 2002 and later merged into Treyarch of Call of Duty fame.

Return to Castle Wolfenstein; a true classic, a phenomenal FPS that has aged well and plays well on modern systems.

I'll be honest, I've never played a Wolfenstein game and I only had a friend that was interested in the franchise. I only took notice of it when Wolfenstein The New Order was announced so I decided to try one of the earlier games and holy crap this game is so much fun.

Return To Castle Wolfenstein does so much right in the single player campaign. Cool settings, tight gunplay, epic orchestra music and a good array of weapons to take out the many types of (Nazi) enemies. This game is pure fun and it achieves at that with flying colours. The best part about it is probably the lack of handholding and not so linear level design which is sadly not so popular in many modern FPS games.

I would give this a total of 8/10 for the fun challenge and gameplay this game has made but unfortunately I couldn't find a game in the multiplayer which is sad but the game is still very much worth the price for the singleplayer campaign alone. Nothing is better than shooting nazis, super soldiers and the undead at the same time.

An old school FPS franchise. This game in particular feels like a mix of classic Medal of Honor and Half Life. You're a WWII era soldier killing nazis and demons. Game is fun and I've really enjoyed it, I definitely recommend it. 3.5/5

One of the best FPS games out there, great level design, a nice variety of weapons, also, a great variety of missions, from shooting every single thing that moves to stealth missions where you have to be very careful.
It might not have so much replay-value, but you'd feel satisfied even with one single playthrough.

Once and a while we have to pull this shooter out of the basement, blow the dust off the cover and fire it up just because of its originality and old-school fps digital jazz. Throw today's carnal desire for graphics out the back door, kiddos, because this game is not just a game. Woa ho ho ho no. This here is how we revive one of America's favorite pastimes: Killing nazis and eating steaming hot meals after riddling some sausage eating rhino's body full of bullets fired from the granddaddies of all guns. You have explosions. You have your cheesy sci fi german science experiment mutation jim jam. You have your secret rooms full of stuff you don't really need but still really want because you want to feel smart for finding them. And last but not least, you have your backpack that can fit whatever brass throwing wooden or metal sticks you find on the ground all at once with no added difficulty to run/leap/twirl/salsa and whatever else I missed because screw logic this is f**king Wolfenstein, b*tches. Best served with heavy metal and a plate of schnitzel.

+ Tony Jay
+ Intriguing plot
+ Landscape and surroundings
+ Pretty good war themed shooter
+ id Tech 3 engine
+ Stealth missions are quite fun
+ Soundtrack!

- little bit too short (~5 hours single player, I would definetly spend some more time in Castle Wolfenstein while killing nazi soldiers)
- not many occasions to use some of the weapons (like the flamethrower)

Overall - Thumbs up, game worth playing.

I;ve been playing this for the first time alongside my third replay of The New Order and this totally holds up. Can't think of a better game where you get to shoot Nazis in a cool castle, actually.

Return To Castle Wolfenstein is a first-person shooter reboot of the Wolfenstein series which much like its predecessor focuses on fast-paced gunplay with a number of improvements made to compensate for the new engine technologies available at the time.

Firstly, unlike Wolfenstein 3D, the developers actually tried to implement a compelling story to a franchise known for not actually having a “story”. To some degree, the story in this game, at least from a concept point of view, brings something new to the table by adding elements of occult. The plot revolves around the American soldier, B.J. Blazkowicz, trying to impede the Nazis from discovering and extracting a serum hidden in an ancient tomb capable of augmenting soldiers into “Dark Knights”, an evil undead army from the 9th Century. Nazis and occult? Absurd ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, but what’s not to like. However, while the concept does enhance the single-player campaign, the story itself is mostly ignorable since it generally feels like it is there to fill in the space. Blazkowicz, while a total badass, still remains one of the blandest protagonists in existence. He takes orders from his superiors like a puppet with no remorse or personal motives. Even when the Allies want to give him a medal for his efforts and persumably a well deserved break at the end, he is somewhere outside still kicking Nazi butt. Boy, he sure is souless; born with only one scope in life: to kill Nazis for eternity. Plus, it is silly how the Allies' solution to most problems is to send a "one-man army" to take down Nazi headquarters single-handedly without even breaking a sweat. But that is Wolfenstein after all; it purposely does not need to explain how Blazkowicz does it -- and hey, some ancient voodoo magic is involved, so anything is justifiable, right? Fortunately, the story did manage to create the cool villain by the name of Deathshead, who later becomes the franchise’s main antagonist.

The gunplay in here is hasty but satisfying, reminiscent of older games such as Quake, Doom and Unreal Tournament, and unquestionably the strongest point of the game. While it all boils down to sprinting and shooting enemies in quick manners, the game does offer some moments of straightforward stealth where you get to sneak behind enemy lines. Additionally, there is an adequate variety in enemies from the deadly female squads in tight leather uniforms (those butts though) to juggernauts like the Über-Soldats. Different weapons are at Blazkowicz’s disposal too, with the Tesla gun being the most fun one to use, even if the MP40 probably becomes the most practical throughout most of the game, thus making pistols pretty redundant. One problem with the weapons though is the fact you never seem to run out of ammo. Retrospectively now, the gunplay does feel very basic, but mostly thanks to its fast paced action killing waves of enemies does not get dull, surprisingly enough.

The level design has the mentality of most shooters back in the late '90s and early noughties based on maze-like corridors and paths, essentially allowing the player the freedom to pick whichever route to travel back and forth within the somewhat confined space. Exploration is also encouraged and rewarded by finding secret chambers filled with collectables, even if these give no gameplay advantages to the player. Graphically, at the time, the game looked great but as time went by its visuals sure look dated today. On the other hand, the same cannot be said to its soundtrack which even to this day remains memorable and rather ageless. When you can recognise a level/map by a specific track from the soundtrack, then you know the soundtrack left a good impression.

Boasting a strong single-player campaign, (wherther you take the story seriously or not), many probably remember the game for its multiplayer component which at the time was very popular and considered by many superior than the campaign, even as far as being regarded one of the best multiplayer components in a game ever. I cannnot argue with that, although it was not until the highly acclaimed free standalone Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory came out that the multiplayer component peaked in popularity. Featuring a class-based gameplay similar to Team Fortress, two teams (Allies and Axis) fight each other to complete objectives on various maps. Personally, I spent far too many hours in the multiplayer alone when I was younger because it was balanced and had a very enjoyable experience. Currently, the multiplayer from Return To Castle Wolfenstein seems dead. Rest in peace.

In conclusion, Return To Castle Wolfenstein still remains a classic in the eyes of many, including myself, who played it in its heydays online and/or offline, and a milestone on PC. But it definitely lost its relevance and appeal to the general public as years have passed due to more ambitious and realistic shooters showing up years later. More old-school than modern, it still is a solid shooter, nevertheless, which does not spoil the player with today’s regenerative health and cover-base mechanics and can still provide enough hours of fun mindlessly killing Nazis. Pick it up only for nostalgic purposes or if you are curious to see how fast-paced shooters were like more than a decade ago in case you never grew up with them.

9/10
If you like killing Nazi's and Zombies, then this classic game is for you. It is really good, and a game that I always come back to here and there. Though, the reason why I'm giving it a 9/10 and not a 10/10 is because it lacked what the Xbox could bring. ( I know Playstation had things too, but I only played the Xbox version. )

The PC version does not have the prequel mission, the shotgun, those dogs with the miniguns, rewards for getting all the secrets, and those weird zombie wizards that shoot electricity at you. But the PC version still is extremely good. It's just since I played the xbox version like crazy, I come into some areas expecting a certain enemy or weapon, only to be disappointed. I also do not use the Thompson, or m1911 (duel or single) because of the 'no reward for getting the secrets', I miss getting the ammo for those weapons since the Thompson sounds badass.

The PC version does have a few other things the Xbox version does not. Like the music in the town (Xbox version is Beethoven), the sniper scope, the stamina, and it seems that the guns and explosions sound different (Maybe not all of them, but I noticed a few better sounding things).

Overall, this game is still amazing, and you should definitally get it.
I'm not sure if the PC version has a mod that adds in what the consoles have, if it does then I'll try to download it. If not, then I guess I'll wait.

One of my favorite WW2 Games along with Battlefield 1942 & Medal of Honor: Allied Assault.

This is a great example of how to make a GOOD remake/reboot.
