    Wolfenstein Umbrella Beginnings, Episodes 1 and 2 - By Jayngoware

    This two-episode set keeps the original Wolf3D feel much of the time, but also has a feel of its own in many places, plus lots of added elements. I thought it was quite well done overall, and am giving it "Good", but it's not all that far from excellent, in my opinion, and I wouldn't rule out giving the whole trilogy excellent depending upon the standard of the in-progress third episode.

    The finding of the rare "artifacts" on each level was interesting, although I was expecting a more profound reward after finding them all. The story is meh, the game plays good. It's different, in a good way. My man fuss? DOS!!! Thankfully, this game runs a bit easier under Dosbox than Foxenstein. That one lags quite a bit for me.

    I think it's great, I really enjoyed playing through both episodes, 2 is much better than 1 but 1 was still good.

    I disagree with DW about the story though, I think it's one of it's strong points.

    There's a lot been added but for the me the improvement I'd like to see for the 3rd part is different walls and sprites, that way the game would really be something individual rather then looking like a Wolf clone.
