I'm currently blasting those militaristic and sadistic black shiny boot people in RETURN TO CASTLE WOLFENSTEIN (some nice footage in the clip below at 7:10 and thereafter), but of course in the whole Wolfenstein series, there are those very early Muse Software releases that also came out on our beloved Atari 8bits (Castle Wolfenstein and Beyond Castle Wolfenstein) plus that cracking early PC release which still fills my underpants with nostalgia - good old Wolfenstein 3D (at 3:13). Some of the later PC incarnations I have never tried or even seen - maybe one or two of you gaming guys on here can comment on them and perhaps give us some feedback on just how good/crap they are?!
ABOVE: Don't expect fast, fluid 1st person shooter action on the A8 version, pal!
It just leaves me with one final outburst to holler at you in me best gutteral Germanic voice -
HALT! STOPPEN ZEE AMERIKAN!
ABOVE: The Nazi's new secret "V" weapons...?!
All credit goes to Valiant Thor - see this and other groovy wargaming/shooter game play vidz over on his channel at:
Of course. The duo on the 8-bit and Wolfenstein 3D on the Jaguar, and one made for the Xbox too. Even though the very early software voice synthesis can be done much better, even on the 8-bit, I still love it! It amazed me back in the day, and it still adds quite a bit of tension when I play today.
By the way, Jaguar Wolfenstein 3D is higher resolution and much faster than the PC version. But, the Jaguar cartridge size that the Tramiels allowed for it was too small, so you can't sneak up on the backside of the Nazi's, they are always facing you when you run into them. Probably a better idea than to lose levels or graphic resolution. It makes the action more frenzied and a more devil-may-care, guns blazing strategy. Luckily ID's version of DOOM for the Jaguar was given twice the cartridge size, so all 8 angles of the enemy are shown for much better 3D animation. John Carmack of ID, Wolfenstein 3D and DOOM programmer for PC and Jaguar versions, stated that he thinks DOOM on the Jaguar is the best version of the game (if you ignore a few missing levels and some boss enemies, again, due to cartridge, would have been all there on CD, but Atari went under before a DOOM 2 on the Jaguar). But still could have been even better, if they had time to reprogram from the ground up taking advantage of the Jaguar's hardware, but the deadlines meant nearly straight ports from the PC.
I loved Wolfenstein 3D and even Spear of Destiny at the time. To be honest, I have never found the games from Muse software to be interesting. It probably has something to do with a fact that I played Wolfenstein 3D first and the games from Muse later.
