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.

Did You Know?


Throughout the game, there are plenty of strange rocket planes, jet planes and flying wings. Although most of these are just fiction, (at least) two are actual WWII German designs:
  • The Ba317 "Cobra", used in B.J. Blazkowicz' escape from the Balkan rocket base and general "Deathshead"'s escape from the X-labs in Norway, is actually the Bachem Ba349 "Natter". The only difference is the lack of external booster rockets. However, throughout the game you see posters with the blueprints for the Cobra, and the booster rockets are shown attached. Also, "Natter" is German for "adder", not far from "Cobra".

  • The odd jet plane being produced in the bombed out factory in Kugelstadt, is actually a Heinkel He162 "Salamander".

The granddaddy of all first person shooters is back!
6 December 2001 | by (Canyon Lake, TX) – See all my reviews

I played and finished Wolfenstein 3D back in '92 (I believe that was the year...) and it was a great game! Following that game was the Doom series, then the Quake evolution, now RtCW. Using the powerful and beautiful Quake III engine, this game includes multiplayer and single player modes. This game screams quality, from the grand architecture to the brilliant flame effects. Tired of the monotonous deathmatch modes in Doom and Quake? Not to worry, multiplayer in this masterpiece is all team-work. Like puzzles? This game is full of difficult-to-find secret areas and interesting puzzles. But the grandeur does not end there! You will overhear important nazi conversations, read interesting documents, experience the awesome A.I. abilities (such as tossing your grenades back at you); and more! This title rightfully should be awarded game of the year. I give it a perfect 10! Hurry over to Electronics Boutique, Gamestop, or an other major video game retailer; and purchase your copy of Return To Castle Wolfenstein! See you on the battlefield!!!
