Hello, all. I was doing some digging on the Wolfenstein wiki and I looked at the articles for Return to Danger and Ultimate Challenge. The story given for both seems very similar, and the level bosses are identical. I've been a fan of Wolf 3d since I started playing it so I might do both those mission packs, just for the fun of it, but is the story similar enough that Ultimate Challenge is just a re-skin of Return to Danger, so that I wouldn't be missing much skipping it(Ultimate Challenge)? I realize most people don't play Wolf 3d or its expansion for the story, but I like the few nuggets of storytelling there actually are.

I recently played through SoD, RtD and UC. Basically, both of the FormGen packs have no in-game story (the in game plot items are a carbon copy of the plot items from SoD - i.e. the end sequence is exactly the same). Both RtD and UC have the full story listed in the manual/online - in the first, Hitler steals back the Spear and in the second - he steals it back again.

I still enjoyed playing through them, but they're basically just reskinned SoD with worse level design. You won't miss out on anything by not playing them, but they're enjoyable enough.
Thanks for the quick response, pds41. To clarify, I recently beat Spear of Destiny and I started playing Return to Danger. I still haven't decided if I want to go through 21 more levels, or basically 42 if I do both Return to Danger and Ultimate Challenge, or whether I want to move on to a game like Doom, Sin, or Shadow Warrior Classic Redux that I have in my backlog.
