Operation Wolf is certainly one of the game history makers and has had a great impact on many games to come after it. It is a very basic, but nonetheless very famous arcade game. It probably earned its fame because for 1989, when games looked like Pang, Digger and such, it was extremely realistic and placed in the real world. The surroundings are amazingly well drawn, and so are your enemies. The story is simple. You're some kind of a commando, and you have to kill the bad guys. At the end of every second level there will be a "boss" of some kind. Your gear consists of bullets and grenades which you will have to use very wisely in order to survive. But since all the actual movement in this game is automatic (you move sideways, as if you're in a car that is moving with constant speed), shooting enemies is the only thing you will have to concentrate on. There are all kinds of enemies, and vehicles that will come from every imaginable direction so you will have to keep your eyes open all the time. Some random nurses, civilians and harmless animals will run by every now and then and you will be awarded with negative points if you shoot them :) That pretty much wraps it up. As I've specified before, the graphics and cutscenes are amazing considering the year in which it was made, and the sounds – well I couldn't hear any both in DOS and DosBox mode. One thing that could also be taken negatively is the actual length of the game. You can finish it pretty quickly as there are only 6 levels (which you can see on screenshot 2). Also, if you die, you start all the way from the beginning :( After adding all the good and bad sides, Operation Wolf diserves a solid 4 mark. Try it out!
