Return to Castle Wolfenstein Critic Reviews


6 / 10

This probably one of the best Wolfenstein games, but that's not saying much, as not a single one can be considered a true classic. Pretty much like all instalments, the "failure" here is that it didn't realise its true potential. Right next to the things that make this so fun, like the undead enemies, Nazi experiments, sexy soldiers, and so on, Return to Castle Wolfenstein also adds lots of elements that belong in a generic CoD wannabe, rather than a - pleasantly - cheesy, run-and-gun FPS. Not exactly a big recommendation, but genre fans will have two or three evenings of fun with it.
