  • Summary: Engage in an epic, story-driven campaign across over 30 levels - from forests and war-torn cities to villages and crypts. Infiltrate top-secret airfields and compounds, silently assassinate enemy officers and escort caputred Panzer tanks. You are B.J. Blazkowicz, a US Army Ranger recruited by the OSA and the Allies' top specialist in covert operations, heavy weapons and assassination. Hilter's head of the SS, Heinrich Himmler, is twisting science and the occult into an army capable of annihiliating the Allies. The balance of victory is in your hands. [Activision] Expand

  1. Sure, some of the textures could do with being of a higher resolution, there’s no multiplayer option and… nope, that’s pretty much all that’s wrong here.

    Raster productions has done an excellent port of the single-player missions from both the Xbox and PC versions of RTCW. [Aug 2003, p.35]
  3. 76
    Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Operation Resurrection loses big on the PS2 because of its lack of multiplayer modes.
  4. 68
    The repetitiveness of the game got to me quickly. With similar level designs, background music, and graphics, the single player mode made me feel like I was playing the same three or four levels over and over again.
  5. If anything can bring your romanticized WWII fantasy crashing back to reality, it's inconsistent A.I. [Aug 2003, p.119]
  6. 65
    Without any multiplayer value there is no justification to drop cash on this thin package, leaving it a rental for the curious.
  7. Falls far, far short of its Xbox forbear in one critical area. The praiseworthy online support that helped the Xbox edition over the steep hill of monotony is as absent as a truant with a severe case of senioritis. They didn't even include split-screen.

    I've been playin the demo to bits recently and i can't wait for it's release in may. single player is very difficult but the whole thing can be played through with a mate as well. most definitely a Halo beater! Expand

    I really enjoyed it! I know its not as good as Halo, but it still was very challenging and very fun which made me go back for more!

    I love this sort of game. Lot's of killing nazis and strange creatures. Comparable to Timesplitters 2. Buy it on sale and it's ok.

    The big showdowns were too easy to defeat.

    No se porque pense que lo que habia visto y sentido con los productos de IdSoftware en play iba a ser igual... lento, con graficas buenas pero no lo suficiente... No lo recomiendo... medal of honor lo patea aun con las peores versiones.... Expand

    No rear as good as the XBOX version.

    But hay I am a Wolvenstien fan, so I'm getting this anyway.

    I might even buy me an XBOX as I
    hear allot of there games now are FANTASTIC. I can't wait for HALO 2, Fable, BC ect.

    I still like my PS2, but I think its reached its expiry date.
