Return to Castle Wolfenstein features an amazing multiplayer component coupled with a good if somewhat underwhelming single-player game. Then again, fans of id Software's previous 3D shooters should be familiar with this model. But honestly, Return to Castle Wolfenstein is well worth buying for the multiplayer game alone, so the fact that you get a solid single-player game in the box can only be considered a bonus.
The Q3 engine is frickin’ beautiful. The environments and architecture add a sense of realism that just sends you head over heals into the story. You don’t think about what you are seeing. You just become engrossed. This is the one to get for the holidays folks. Not a whole lot of new innovations to the genre, but oh what a blast to play. Hands down a classic.
The single player campaign is certainly decent and will hold people's interest long enough to get them accustomed to the various weapons in time to jump into multiplayer. It's not quite the revolutionary trip back to Castle Wolfenstein that people may have been hoping for, but that's no reason to discount it, as it is nothing less than a solid and satisfying experience. But it's no doubt that the real value in the title falls on the multiplayer which is definitely one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had in quite a while.
