Gaming’s Top NEIN Hitlers
WARNING! ADOLFS ONLY
Adolf Hitler, history’s biggest bastard, has bizarrely appeared in more games than Master Chief and Marcus Fenix put together. Here are NEIN! of his best…
No videogame series offers the player more chances to kill Hitler than Wolfenstein. He most famously appears as the final boss in Wolfenstein 3D wearing a heavily armoured mecha-suit, but his association with the series goes back further than that – he adorned the cover of 2D adventure, Beyond Castle Wolfenstein.
2. SNIPER ELITE V2
Hitler is, of course, the most wanted target for any World War II sniper, and that’s why 505 Games shamelessly took Sniper Elite V2’s ‘Assassinate the Führer’ mission out of the main game and made it DLC that you could get for free by pre-ordering the game. Charging extra for the best bit of the game? Someone should be shot…
Literally translated, Bionic Commando’s original Japanese name was The Resurrection Of Hitler: Top Secret. In the plot of the Japanese version, Hitler had been cryogenically frozen then revived by his Nazi pals, and one of your main objectives was to kill him. Outside of Japan, a lot of changes were made, with all references to Nazism removed and Hitler’s name changed to Master-D. He still looks like Hitler though. In Bionic Commando: Rearmed he became The Leader and was given a breathing mask so you couldn’t tell whether or not he was still Hitler.
The latest in a long line of Japanese games with an unsettling Hitler fixation, and this might be the strangest of them all. It’s a re-telling of World War II in which Hitler is some sort of necromancer able to raise his troops from the dead using magic. He can also summon dragons and vampires but can’t, for the life of him, speak in a convincing German accent. Oh, and you play as the S.A.S., who can turn into werewolves. Of course.
5. TOTAL CARNAGE
The final boss of this most bizarre of Midway’s arcade treasures is the oddly named General Akhboob, who appears at the end of the game as a giant head. Each time you think you’ve beaten him, he retreats then reappears with a different face, one of which is blatantly Hitler. And why not?
6. ASSASSIN’S CREED
According to Assassin’s Creed’s totally hatstand retelling of all human history, World War II was the deliberate result of a conspiratorial plan hatched by an elite group of Templar agents, including Hitler and Churchill. One of the Glyphs in Assassin’s Creed II refers to a mission in which they (referred to as H. and C.) are targets.
7. INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE
Hitler appears in the graphic adventure just as he does in the movie of the same name, with the scene in which Jones actually meets him recreated with all the wit and charm you’d expect from a classic LucasArts point ‘n’ click. Hint: don’t click ‘Throw punch at Hitler’ if you want Indy to survive the encounter.
Where Operation Darkness has Hitler resurrecting the undead and summoning dragons, this ultra-daft multiplayer Half-Life 2 mod has him bringing dinosaurs back to life and recruiting them to the Wehrmacht.
Yet another ‘Hitler didn’t really die, and he’s coming back’ story from Japan. This time, it turns out Hitler is actually Nyarlathotep – a demon originally created by H.P. Lovecraft – in disguise.
