Gamer 2.0 writes: "The original Wolfenstein game debuted back in the 80's, and since then it has been the forefront for how first-person shooters have been played and designed to this day. With a long-standing pedigree as famous as Doom, Wolfenstein made its comeback debut in 2001 with the stellar Return to Castle Wolfenstein, but has since taken a seven year hiatus. Activision is hoping to revive the ghouls from Wolfenstein and return it to grandeur status.
The Wolfenstein series has long been a crafty collective of both Nazis and zombies, and generally what could be better to kill than both of those fiendish enemies? The World War II atmosphere has been played out for a long time, and is probably the most basic and general setting for any shooter, but Activision hopes to diversify Wolfenstein from the crowd by offering up a unique twist on the effects circulating the war (plus, Activision doesn't want Wolfenstein to compete with its own Call of Duty franchise). The story stars series vet B.J. Blazkowicz, an Army Ranger who has foiled the Nazi's plans since the first game."
