I have been playing and enjoying Wolfenstein for XBOX 360 for the last week. In the game you play as the Aliide agent B.J. BLazkowicz which in my opinion is every Germans worst enemy. In this game you uncover a mysterious artifact something that is called Black Sun Energy. It is up to you to stop the Third Reich from developing it into a weapon. Within minutes you are sent to Germany and located in the middle of Germany cooperating within local resistance groups.
It is not one of your typical games. You use your local city as a hub where you launch yourself into various missions. This allows you to explore the city more hten before and if you remember the original Wolfenstein 3D, you will immediately recognise what is happening. You can meet up with various contacts around the city and start new missions. This allows you to go off into new levels that you did not experience before.When you feel that you are finished with this you can go back to the city levels.
When walking around Isenstadt I have noticed that it only takes a couple of seconds to walk around the city levels, Ideally I would like to see more resistance in this levels. You will notice that when you play the game that you go up and down the streets alot of times meeting with various resistance groups. On the compass there is a constant marker for you to tell you where you need to go, this is a huge help for me since I have more then once walked down the wrong street:-)
You can compete a mission for one group and then beeing told to meet another group where you will get another new mission. There is not much of a choice here, you are beeing told where to go and what to do.There is alot of things to blow up here:-)
Combating in Wolfenstein is really nice. There is alot of stuff that flyes by when grenades are beeing thrown and covers that are beeing shredded by gunfire. When you are running low on ammo there is always the option of finding more exotic weapons. You will not be able to upgrade to all of the weapons, but you will find interesting weapons that allows you get better range, accuracy, recoil dampening and much more.
Most of you reading this reading this review are probably wondering where is the magical powers in wolfenstien, because without the magical weapons there is just not Wolfenstein. In this game there is a mystical amulet that gives you special powers. It acts like night, but it also shows the enemy weak spot and beeing able to travel between different dimensions. When you are standing in front of a wall that you can not go through but when you turn on Veil Sight you can go straight through the wall. THis could also allow you to flank enemy positions. There is alot of different options that you can find with the Veil Sight.
You will face all from Wehrmact infantry to SS Troopers to much more. There is more exotic foes out there also, such as the Heavy Trooper and Assassin.
I really enjoy the graphics that Wolfenstein has, but when you go out into the missions that takes you out of the city. The enviroment out there is amazing. They have really created a game that has a an awesome graphics engine. THe audio is in one word awesome. Put your ears close to the speakers and you will hear the sounds from the weapons firing.
When finishing this game I have found that it allows you to have and it takes around nine hours to finish. If you are looking for a game that you will enjoy and love this is the game to get.Activision has created a great game for all the users out there.
