If there's a more perfect video game enemy than the Nazi zombie, I'll be damned if I can think of what it is. The Nazis are the most evil guys in history, and if someone had told Himmler "hey, maybe we can bring dead guys back to life as flesh eating ghouls who will fight for the Fatherland", I bet that crazy bastard would have dispatched an SS regiment to look into it posthaste. It's one of those weird things that's totally implausible, but feels like it could have happened.
Anyway, there's a new Wolfenstein game coming out—and it's all about killing Nazi zombies. The official website is up and now I've got a trailer for the game courtesy of the guys over at Game Trailers.
So, enjoy this glimpse of what's to come and get your rifles ready. The new Wolfenstein hits the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 this July.

A film critic by trade, specializing in Euro-horror, cult exploitation, and Asian action cinema, Mike has written reviews for a diverse group of print and online publications. He covers horror news, movies, books, and games at TheHorrorGeek.com and Horrorsquad.com and spent two seasons as The Horror Geek on Comedy Central's pop-culture game show, Beat the Geeks.
Mike's childhood was spent playing videogames any time he got a chance. His parents had a Pong console and his grandmother had an Atari 2600, where Mike cultivated his skills by playing hour upon hour of games like Space Invaders, Berserk, and Asteroids. From those early experiences Mike learned one thing: he loved games.
In 1999, Mike became a staff reviewer at Cinescape Magazine's website where he spent a year learning the craft of game criticism. After internal changes led to Mike leaving Cinescape in late 2000, he joined up with RPGFan in 2001 and spent several years writing reviews for them. Happy, but looking for an opportunity to expound on a wider variety of titles, Mike joined GameCritics.com and hopes to help Chi, Dale, and the rest of the GC staff bring a higher level of respect to the field of game criticism.
