Because the 3DO port of Wolfenstein 3D was developed by the same company as the Macintosh port, the two games are nearly identical. They both feature higher resolution graphics, an in-game map, more weapons, and superior audio. However, unlike the original DOS version, the 3DO lacks rotating sprites, so enemies are always looking at you, making it impossible to sneak up on them--a feature that was sorely missed. Also, the game takes less time to beat due shorter and fewer maps. The story remains the same. You play a WWII P.O.W. trying to escape from an underground Nazi prison. You shoot Nazis in a first-person perspective; collect treasure, ammo, health; find secret doors to help you escape.

The 3DO version not only features the console version stages, but also all 60 of the DOS version's levels as well. However, the bosses from episodes 4 to 6 were replaced by the ones from Spear of Destiny.

The 3DO version was critically acclaimed for its fluid controls, upgraded graphics and audio.

Utilizing the superior quality 3DO sound hardware, Todd Dennis was able to compose a higher fidelity soundtrack compared to that of to DOS version. His music features a fully orchestrated score with an epic sound that really fits the subject of the game. The only downside to the game's audio is that there's only a fraction of songs compared to the original DOS version. There is also a song ripped from the game itself, but is not used in the game. It may have been intended as either another level theme, or for the main menu (which continues the title music).

Also, it should be noted at approximately 0:22 into In-Game 1, there is a sort of "scratchy" sound that plays. This is a part of the song and not a problem with the game itself.
