The Grand ol' Wolfenstein 3D!
Always hailed and loved... The Snes version often causes controversy... Read on...


The Story: Wolfenstein 3D, you know "Doom" Right? well this is where doom all started, through wolfenstein 3D, this game can now be found on Xbox live arcade and Playstation 3's online shop, But... There was a version of wolfenstein 3D released, one of the latest versions made... Often shunned out from the "Wolfenstein 3D" name by gamers and especially "ID Software." Why? Well it all started from Germany...


Wolfenstein 3D, Unlike Doom, was made before doom in a more realistic sense, rather than shooting zombies and aliens on "Phobos" & "Deimos" you're going back in a fictional history.
You take on the role of William B.J Blazkowicz, Going to infiltrate several castles full of Nazis in attempt to get information and seek out and destroy "Hitler." As you can probably plainly tell, this is why germany was ticked. They Banned Wolfenstein 3D and halted the coming shipment of wolfensteins on the "Atari Jaguar." Due to concerns at "Nintendo of America," they decided to go through and edit the game removing the nazi Icon(Swastika) and taking the mustache off the painting of hitler you see once in a while. They also bogged down the graphics to not cause any suspiscion amongst germans and released it with the "Stotmeister" as the main boss rather than hitler.
People did not like the change, and it's not bad by any means, but ID was not aware of the changes and were ticked when it came out the way that it was.

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXQrCwGCp-I"]YouTube - PC - Wolfenstein 3D - E3M9 (Hitler) 100% Video[/ame]

Did anyone else kind of sense them making fun of germans, I mean, the "Let's see That Again" on hitlers death... I don't know, but. Germans weren't too pleased, that is the PC version above. The one my dad used to play after work, now. My dad had set out to buy us a SNES in 1993 and someone from his work was willing to sell it for real cheap with about 20 games, you can guess where this is going, can you not? One of the games that I grew up with as a result was wolfenstein 3D on the SNES, look at the comparison. But it is still fun

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NM01Jy8di0"]YouTube - Wolfenstein 3D SNES - Episode 1[/ame]

That is what I grew up with...
As you can plainly see the graphics aren't very pleasing(but it is snes), and what the hell are those grey things!?!? They are mutant rats... like I've said before, what's wrong with German shepards for crying out loud, Giant Mutant Rats? Really? alright, so looking past that, it's not much different, the rats still have the same hit amounts as the dogs so, let's look past that.
Well, If I'm invading a castle, these guys no it's going to happen, why are they yelling "Stop" & "Halt"... I really doubt that would happen. Yeah okay, I'll stop... wait what! I stopped and they are still shooting me!
Looking past that
The last problem I have is the facial expressions on the bosses, I mean, look at the boss in the first level, (it's shown in the above video) that looks absolutely sadistic, his eyes are red dots and oh my gosh, bizarre.

Well, All my complaints are really on graphical things, the game is playable, and it's fun, dang fun! I could be going around shooting different colored blobs and it would still be the same, asides from looks, the game still rocks and should not be bagged on as much as it is, yeah, it seems very weird at points. What it comes down to is that it is one of the original FPS's, and whos to say mario isn't weird, I mean... let's not get into that

Throughought the game, you go through... excuse me, I've lost count, 7 different castles if I'm correct and about 50 levels. Pretty decent for SNES game, is it not? Although, the word is that the Pc version has ten episodes(including expansion packs) with ten castles, each with ten levels, but the core wolfenstein had 3 castles with 10 levels, that's right, the snes version did feature some levels from an expansion pack, but each castle had 3-7 missions rather than ten so they had to pick and choose their levels.
There were secrets in the game, oh believe me, there were a whole crapload of secrets. The secrets were always hidden in walls, you could travel against the walls and tap the "open door" button, and the wall would move backwards, usually presenting some special items, sometimes, it was maditory to find these.
You did not have to jus hit random walls all of the time though, normally, trap doors would be located where the paintings were, if there was a painting, that should be the first place you check.

We have talked enough about the graphics... bottomline, they're bogged down, but it's definitely playable. So let's talk sound.
I personally enjoy the music for the mos part, but it does get on my nerves eventually because there is only 4 or 5 songs, but it doesn't fail to suit the mood.

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQfW-LJ7Ml0&feature=PlayList&p=186B03B6E4984A2A&index=0 &playnext=1"]YouTube - Wolfenstein 3D SNES Music - Part 1[/ame]

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eth8KmgCOfY&feature=related"]YouTube - Wolfenstein 3D SNES Music - Part 2[/ame]

I'm pretty sure those 2 videos sum up all of the songs. I can't really say I have a favourite, because they are all pretty decent.

All of this is not to say the game didn't sell well, it sold a hefty amount of games, come on! people loved the PC wolfenstein 3D and they eagerly awaited this one so that they could play it on their SNES. Most people, were dissapointed.
I myself have beaten this game, about 4 times, it is not bad, and it is time consuming, Shortest time I ever beat it in was 4 hours.
So I'm not saying don't buy or try this. If you want the full experience. Buy the PC version, or any other version. If you want a quick skim through of the best levels, buy the snes version, Either way, it's a great game.

Thanks for reading,
Please comment if you feel the need

Re: Wolfenstein 3D (Snes)

You've got some typos and some grammatical errors, should I just edit them myself or list them? Remember I'm only trying to help here.

Btw you didn't explain why the graphics are so poor, it was a port from the PC version(with things altered like pictures of hitler and swastikas).

I do have to give you credit cameron, the mistakes are minor and it doesn't hurt the review too much.

Re: Wolfenstein 3D Super Nintendo

You really don't want a jaguar.. Don't get one. Just get the PC version, much easier...

Bad games, graphics, controllers, and mediocre sound.

I got the Pc version on the DC, it's great except any time you touch a wall it beeps instead of grunting...

Re: Wolfenstein 3D Super Nintendo

just read this review for the first time, pretty decent. it was touched on, but i would definately mention that it was ported for the pc, and per nintendo's policy in the 90's, the game was censored to remove nazi references and the blood was taken out.
