You play B.J. Blazkowicz, an World War II American secret agent, who is sent to investigate reports of bizarre experiments being conducted by Nazi Germany's special weapons research facilities involving the occult. What you find is more frightening than can be imagined and that much harder to stop as you must battle not only the Nazi hordes, but also the stuff of nightmares not including the monstrosities that twisted Nazi science have created.

Excellent game, better than competition, but could be better
12 November 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best games I have ever played. Id really utilized its Quake 3 Arena engine and created excellent levels and very interesting enemies. This game has very cool gameplay thanks largely to the realistically inaccurate submachine guns, tracer effects, and relatively clever enemies. The environments also make a great contribution to the gameplay, the castle looks amazing and there are some interesting wide open areas such as the tram, the dam, and the aircraft base. The AI is very impressive, for example snipers are very accurate and hard to find and when you throw a grenade at most enemies, they kick it back to you!!! Wow!!! That is really cool. This game also has a really nice aspect that I really admire, the dead enemies don't vanish!!! They stay where you killed them! The competitor FPS games don't offer that. The only thing that I really dislike and find irritating here is the language. Why didn't they have the Nazis speak German with English subtitles??? Instead they speak English with German accents. That's very silly and big mistake. Other than that the game is fine.
