Return to Castle Wolfenstein is a first-person shooter set during a crazed sci-fi horror version of WWII. Agent B.J. Bazkowicz must go behind enemy lines to stop a mad Nazi plot to win the war by resurrecting the dead and harnessing the powers of twisted science and the occult to create an ultimate weapon. The battle action is fast-paced and furious with a wide range of enemies to blast and weapons to blast them with.
Completing the mission
Return to Castle Wolfenstein follows up on the classic first-person shooter Wolfenstein 3D returning to the over-the-top WWII setting and tough-talking hero B.J. but adding new levels graphics weapons and enemies. The multiplayer mode was influential when released inspiring many other games although the game no longer has much of an online following. The combination of off-kilter humour spooky monsters and fast-paced action made this game both a critical and commercial succcess when it first came out.
