The Wolfenstein series holds a very special place in my heart as it was the very first 3D shooter that I played on an old crappy PC possibly in MS-DOS. While I haven't played them all, this next version looks really great.
I remember playing Wolfenstein 3D and thinking, wow, this game is such a great change from the normal side scrolling or birds eye view type games. Plus, when you shoot the Nazi bad guys they bleed and if I get shot, my image at the bottom shows me bleeding. How cool. Hey I was 10 or so and was into anything bloody.
The story for the new Wolfenstein: The New Order goes like this:
Europe, 1946. World War II rages across Europe. Where once the Allies pressed advantage, the Nazi forces have turned the tide in dramatic fashion behind the technologically advanced war machine of General Wilhelm Strasse -- Deathshead. When a final Allied assault on Deathshead's compound fails, the Allies’ greatest hope falls with it.
Europe, 1960. The war is over. And the Nazis are triumphant victors. Using unrelenting force and brutal intimidation, the Nazis have brought even the most powerful nations to their knees. The Nazi regime now rules the globe with an iron fist.
You are Captain B.J. Blazkowicz, the American War Hero. After emerging into this world of darkness, you must launch an impossible counter-offensive against the monstrous Nazi regime. Only you dare stand up against an unstoppable army of Nazi robots and hulking Super Soldiers. Only you can stop Deathshead. Only you can rewrite history.
|Can I play, Daddy?|
|I am Death Incarnate,|
So how about you? Are you a baby or are you Death Incarnate?
