I actually haven't played the previous games. The third game in the series (1992) is known as the game that made the first person shooter game what it is today. So I wish I would've played that one. The premise of the game is Nazi Germany won the war and pretty much runs the world. You play BJ who is trying to save the world from the Nazis. The Nazis have created a scary world full of robots.

There are a lot of great cut scenes that help move the story along. Plus the main character speaks every now with some internal dialog that also helps you understand the story too. The shooting is perfect. You can dual wield, throw knives, you find ammo around the level to reload. There is a great stealth system too. So you can sneak through levels and not be spotted. I did think the game got a little long but that might be perhaps because I was trying to hurry and get it returned without renting it for 3 nights.
I really do think this is a great game and am so glad that I picked it up to play. If you love first person shooters this game is really for you. 8 out of 10
