Wolfenstein: The New Order is a follow up to the mediocre Wolfenstein game from 2009, which didn't really stand out against other WWII games and just generally failed to innovate. Coming from the team responsible for games like The Darkness and The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, I had very high hopes for a polished shooter with a riveting story. I can happily say I was not disappointed; from start to finish, Wolfenstein: The New Order is expertly crafted and memorable in every way. You are BJ Blaskowics, US soldier and steadfast killing machine, tasked with the elimination of General Deathshead. Standing out from previous game, BJ's character is extremely well characterised and likeable, supported by strong voice work and character movement/modelling. All of the characters in this game have excellent voice acting, and this really supports the role of the villains in the game; characters such as Frau Engel and Deathshead were memorable because of the terrifying non-combat encounters reminiscent of scenes from Inglourious Basterds. Gameplay generally borrows from thw work of Quentin Tarantino, with plenty of gory explosions and dismemberment. The shooting mechanics are tight and refined, including a wide range of weapons which can all be dual wielded for maximum carnage. This works fairly well and allows the player to mix up the gameplay whenever it is desired. You can also take cover and peer over obstacles. You also have a mostly non-regenerating health bar, and there is more empasis on old school mechanics like health-kits and armour pickups. The refinement of somewhat simple mechanics means that this game is a successful blend of old and new age shooters, meaning the game never grows boring and even breathes fresh life into the genre. The levels are less restricted than other games of the genre, and you are actively encouraged to explore in order to find new weapons and unlocks. New features of the game such as perks (new upgrades unlocked by performing specific tasks) are not necessary to the game, but provide an interesting addition for completionists. The visuals are also quite polished, and the game is often stunning to observe. However, there are occassionally texture pop-ins and slow loading textures, which can get distracting over the course of the game. Despite this, most of the game retains decent visual quality. Overall, Wolfenstein: The New Order is an entertaining, over-the-top shooter that surprises you with a quality story and characters you'll really invest in. The high quality of the game ensures a definite return for the series, and has given me high hopes for both this franchise as well as DOOM; Machine Games has lived up to their reputation and delivered a fantastic game not unlike The Darkness and Riddick. Excellent and surprising. 10 / 10.

Wolfenstein is back, baby! At a 10 hour duration (just for the story, not 100%), it has been the most fun I've had in a shooter for years. I was also very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the story. Amongst the frantic arcade blitz-every-Nazi-on-screen, there's a nice plot at play.
GGWP, MachineGames. Looking forward to your next title.
The New Order - A refreshing new Take!khawaja07 | July 19, 2014 | See all khawaja07's reviews »
Wolfenstein - The New Order ladies and gentlemen, the game which sets the bar for future First Person Shooters to come. In all Wolfenstein games i've played so far, i have never seen B.J "Badass" Blazkowicz wreck as much Nazi scum as in this game!
It surprisingly features a great touching story of B.J's rebellion against the Nazi atrocities, which in my opinion which was really great to play through, it also excels in what other first person shooters these days don't quite succeed in - No Regenerating HP, amazing looking textures, wielding two weapons at the same time while wrecking havoc among the Nazi's, classic Shooting battle royals in a finely created destructible environment which is really fun to play in and what not. It has quite a few difficulty levels which i had a ton of fun playing through as this game unlike the past entries involves a really nice bit of replayability as well. It however can seem extremely hard on some levels and on some, a smooth ride.
I really was surprised to see that it contains a really nice soundtrack to listen to, which in the past Wolfenstein games was absent.
Overall, totally my game of the year so far! totally worth its price! Its a great treat to play in all of its HD glory and at max. settings on my PC at 60 frames per second.
Cannot wait to play what Machine games works on in the future!

Wolfenstein The New Order really surprised me. I went into it expecting just another fun shooter but what I got was one of the best games I've played in 2014.
The game-play has what you would expect from a shooter, satisfying guns, explosions, blood and gore. Then there's stealth which the series of Wolfenstein has not had like this before. You can choose how you want to tackle a situation either guns blazing or sneaky with multiple paths you can take to proceed, which really helps to make the game feel less linear.
There is a perk system which allows you to earn special abilities by completing small objectives which also double as achievements. The graphics and animation are top notch which really shows off what the id tech 5 engine can do, but be in mind this game requires a pretty beefy pc to run well.
The sound design is also pretty exceptional with an excellent voice cast that make the characters come alive and music and sound effects that really immerse the player into the tense and scary world the Nazis have created.
For a story in a video game, machine games have really raised the bar when it comes to quality. The characters all feel very human and life-like which makes it very easy for the player to care for them and feel involved in the games setting.
Machine games is a brand new studio made up of ex Starbreeze veterans so I am not at all surprised I ended up loving Wolfenstein the new order so much. I can't wait to see what machine games does next weather it be a Wolfenstein sequel or a new game entirely.
So yeah I liked this game a lot you should buy it.
