The action is satisfying and there are plenty secrets to find. It’s definitely dated and flawed, but this is a game you play for its nostalgic value.80IGN
Wolfenstein 3D is just as fun a trip you can have going down memory lane.80PALGN
Wolfenstein 3D is not a first person shooter, it’s The First Person Shooter.783DJuegos
it’s a really good port of wolf 3d, good controls, runs really well. but the music is half speed, i don’t know why that would even happen80Birdmaster11
If you played the original version of this game then you will expect nothing less… Its complete… nothing added… nothing removed. This is the Wolenstein I grew up with and love.100jgilkinson

Wolfenstein is very deserving of its special place in the history of videogames, but that doesn’t mean playing it again today isn’t any fun. [Issue#48, p.99]70X-ONE Magazine UK
Between its labyrinth maps, dreary gunplay and enemy design, along with repetition that will break some of the most patient players, this is a game that’s not worth your time.57Talk Xbox
Way too slow and boring by today’s standards. [Aug 2009, p.75]55Official Xbox Magazine
A classic, but one best left to history. [Oct 2009, p.95]50Official Xbox Magazine UK
As a prototype of all that’s come since, Wolfenstein is interesting – but not every antique is valuable. [Aug 2009, p.102]40Xbox World 360 Magazine UK
