Personal review
A fun run-and-gun FPS (one of the pioneers of the genre) with a simple goal in mind: kill nazis.
It has not aged well (its palette is very harsh to the sight, and its control feels clunky), but still its minoic level design (filled with secrets) and its variety of levels (from the ubermensch/zombie army of mission 2 to the secret nightmare of mission 4) make it a nice title.
Its simpleness is its best virtue; nonetheless this game was made to be hard.

7 of 10, would kill mystic führers again.

Official description
Maybe it was the fact that people got to blow away Nazis. Maybe it was the sheer challenge of it all. For whatever reason, Wolfenstein 3D and Spear of Destiny, pioneered the first-person shooter genre and brought its legendary creators, id Software, worldwide notoriety and numerous awards. In fact, The Computer Gaming World Hall of Fame recognized Wolfenstein 3D as helping to shape the overall direction of the computer gaming industry.

Editor notes (3)
They also released a mission pack titles "The Nocturnal Missions" with three more episodes. Later releases of Wolfenstein 3D would include these mission pack episodes and thus had six episodes instead of only the three original episodes.
