If you like first person shooters then you definitely should not miss out on this title. Wolfenstein is all about killing modernized nazi soldiers in a world where world war 2 went in favor of the nazis. It has a good story that is going to immerse you in the futuristic nazi ruled world. These days first person shooters are getting really repetitive and its good for a change to see one that isn't or trying to be call of duty.

I got myself this game and tought "It could be fun". I played it for a while (18 hours) and here's what I can tell - game could be a little bit longer and harder. 9 hours for a game many people waited for and had expectations? Please. I completed it twice. Second thing - first big choice you make in game. It has no impact on whole game, except one different character, lockpicking/hotwiring is mainly the same and the biggest change that has actual impact on gameplay is the kind of bonus you are going to collect.
but this game has also some great things, like soundtrack. I mean, re-recording hits in german...it is so fitting for the universe. And dual-wielding sniper rifles. Also, graphics is great. Very detailed textures and even on lowest settings game looks amazing. Next thing...weapons. There should be more. 2 variants of pistols and sub-machine guns (depends on level only...), a sniper rifle, heavy laser minigun looted from soldier's corpse and Laserkraftwerk. If we count in weapon mods, multiply it by 2 and substract 3. I expected a lot more. Get it on a good sale. Or wait for price to drop down. If you waited for it for that long - you can wait a little bit longer.
Great throwback to older shooters884okeoJ | July 2, 2014 | See all 884okeoJ's reviews »
Wolfenstein: The New Order is an excellent return to the wide-open levels and ridiculous guns of older shooters. In an alternate timeline, where Nazi Germany won World War II and control the world, you must defeat them once and for all. The plot is not one of The New Order's strong suits, although the atmosphere is quite good.
The graphics are fairly good for a 2014 release, but some of the textures look quite dated. The game is well optimized for PC's, and rarely dips in frames. The most important part of the game is the shooting, which is done very well. Over the course of the game, you evolve into an unstoppable Nazi killing machine capable of dual wielding assault rifles and doing many more ridiculous things. If you are a fan of old school shooters, you should definitely give the New Order a try.

Great gameplay, easy mechanics, cool tools.Best value in a game for this year.The story is surprisingly amazing. Story is set in an alternate reality 1960s Earth, the Third Reich has won World War II and taken over the world. Only one man could possibly stand against the new mechanical might of the Nazis and he is William. This game will make you want to stay in this Nazi world just because of how much fun you can have in it.
The graphics are sublime!
A Solid Outing for Wolfensteinmrminecrafter1 | June 19, 2014 | See all mrminecrafter1's reviews »
This game is a pretty good addition to the franchise. Not one of the best shooters out in the market right now, but it certainly is more than above average. The story of B.J. Blazkowicz is just phenomenal. B.J. is a really like-able character alongside with all the other characters in the story. The diverse environment is really good which is essential for this game considering it's only single-player. Graphics are impressive at moments. I don't like the linear level design but it is being retailed as a classic shooter with modern improvements. It is still fun even if the level design is a bit weak, but that little flaw I noted is because I never grew up with old classic shooters. Overall this game is pretty good.
Recommendation Level: For FPS gamers, this deserves a bit of attention.
