Wolfenstein

So lately I have been working my way slowly through Wolfenstein for the Xbox 360. It is a good game so far it has some bits in it that get frustrating such as random encounters and actions that if you aren’t fully vested in the game you will miss the cue and end up dying once or twice before you realize you have to use a specific power or weapon or route to get through that part. The game is pretty good and follows the basics of a first person shooter here are some different weapons here are some missions go and then they throw in a few special magical powers to make it possible to do impossible things. There really isn’t anything special about the game and in all honesty the graphics are a wee bit behind the times but luckily for them I am a big fan of the Wolfenstein story lines and have always enjoyed the use of the occult side of the Nazis and the fact that they left no stone unturned when it came to trying to win the world. During play for this game I frequently wonder how far the Nazis really went with certain things and who if anyone ended up getting all of that information. It is no coincidence that the two super powers after the war happened to be the two countries that split the bulk of German technology. I also from time to time wonder why more game designers haven’t ever used the Nazi’s in Africa or why no one really ever even acknowledges that whole part of the war. But back to the game it is a good time killer if you have the time if you don’t I would say pass on it and keep on playing Modern Warfare 2 if you like the throwback and remember the first Wolfenstein fondly then it is probably worth the time to give it a play threw.
