Wolfenstein 3D review

Join me as I recall my first time encountering the legendary American spy William Joseph “B.J.” Blazkowicz, and his heroic adventures in samey looking Nazi fortresses known as Wolfenstein 3D (id Software/Apogee Software, 1992).

Today I present to you full soundtrack from Zone 66 (Renaissance/Epic MegaGames, 1993) composed by Kenny Chou.
