The long awaited sequel to the iconic 1992 classic & a prequel to the 2014 hit “The New Order”, I’m very happy to say 2001’s “Return To Castle Wolfenstein” still holds up quite well today. I have a special place in my heart for this historical fantasy franchise. It’s a great mix of SciFi & Nazi Occultism. The goal is to stop Himmler from unleashing an ancient demonic power to win WWII. Dr. Deathshead & his monstrous Mecha-Nazi creations also make their debut. It does a good job mixing its classical FPS style with the gaming mechanics of the modern era especially in the wide array of weapons to choose from. The level design is fantastic. With consistent from arctic bases to medieval catacombs to explore it always keeps you on your toes & it never feels repetitive. It gave me 23 hrs of Nazi killing fun! Grade B+

In 2003 gaming history was made when the first installment in the most successful action franchise ever was released. 14 years later it still remains as mighty & enthralling as ever. Starting with the D-Day invasion you drop into Normandy with the 101st Airborne & take out enemy artillery. Later you play as a British Commando in a thrilling sequence where you must hold a strategic bridge in the town of BĂ©nouville, France repelling wave after wave of Nazis trying to recapture it. The sound design is incredible especially when you hear the whining moan on the tracks of a panzer & the ghastly buzz of a German MG42 machine gun. This also contains one of the most extraordinary & unforgettable moments of the entire series during the Battle of Stalingrad as you land on the banks of the Volga river under heavy Luftwaffe bombardment. Grade A-
