    Wolfenstein for the Xbox 360


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Is Wolfenstein a familiar name to you? If the answer is yes, then you'll definitely want to keep reading. If you've been waiting patiently since 2001 for the next part in this first person shooter to come out, wait no longer: it's here, it's cool, and we're reviewing it today.

    Many fans of the first person shooter genre owe its success and current popularity to the title that kick-started it all: Wolfenstein 3D. Launched all the way back in 1992 for the PC, Wolfenstein gave many gamers the opportunity to blast away at Nazi enemies from a first person point of view and provided hours upon hours of fun. It was a cool mix of both history and sci-fi.

    Back again, this time for the Xbox 360 as a sequel to Return to Castle Wolfenstein released in 2001, Wolfenstein delivers more action-packed gameplay and a similar themed storyline but with better graphics, thanks to all the technological improvements made in the last 17 years. While Wolfenstein for the Xbox 360 is not the greatest game ever, it has plenty of action both online and offline to keep you busy.

    It’s a rather simple game, with a storyline that is not all that engrossing and maps that could have been made a bit bigger. Considering the powerful gaming engines and capabilities at designers’ disposal now, one might have hoped for a “deeper” game that does not feel repetitive after a while. Still, many will enjoy the game as a simple release after a hard day at work when they don’t want to think too much and just want to blast away and destroy everything in their path. For that daily release of frustration, Wolfenstein is the perfect remedy. You can pick up Wolfenstein for the Xbox 360 at a retail price of $59.99

    The main protagonist of the original Wolfenstein, B.J. Blaskowicz, is back yet again to continue his Nazi slaying ways. It is Blaskowicz’ duty this time to protect the vulnerable residents and resistance groups of the fictional German town of Isenstadt from the evil Nazi group affectionately named the Schutzstaffel.

    The Schutzstaffel are up to their old, evil ways and this time are attempting to achieve a stronghold on the powerful treasure known as Black Sun. This is some type of supernatural energy source that has the ability to give humans monstrous abilities capable of granting the Nazi’s dominance over everyone who stands in their way.

    This plot is actually pretty interesting, considering that the Nazis desired such domination in actual history. However, while the plot is interesting, Wolfenstein does not exactly follow through in maximizing its potential. All you really get are boring cut scenes that explain it. It is first and foremost a shooter and not a role playing game at its core.
