    Wolfenstein has been a long-running franchise starting with the original Castle Wolfenstein in 1981 to Wolfenstein 3D (1992) as one of the first 3 dimensional games. Then later in 2001 Return to Castle Wolfenstein continued the story by revisiting the original concept but with more efficient graphics and stunning visuals... but that wasn't enough. In 2009 Ravensoft developed yet another Wolfenstein with modern graphical capabilities opening a whole new world in the Wolfenstein franchise.

    Of course I wanted to see if it run in Linux...

    Thats It!
    No extra packages, display configuration or setup.
    PlayOnLinux made this really easy.
    It defaulted to Wine 1.4 and Wolfenstein ran great!

    I made all my typical video & control changes in game.
    Everything was full screen and ran wonderfully!
