Just a awesome single player game. Can be replayed at least twice. (Alternate timelines giving you different puzzles and various ways to navigate a level. Easily one of the best first-person shooters I've have played for a while. Easily some of the most fun I've had shooting and navigating levels since Half-Life and Metro.
- Shooting Feels Fantastic. Let's you dual-wield everything.
- Game allows for stealth in many areas and if excecuted correctly, you can kill many guards with ease.
- Highly Satisfying to Kill, Headshots are very rewarding.
- Game looks fantastic, sure there are low-res texture, but it still easily one of the best looking games i've played for a while. Blood splatter is everywhere.
- Story is simple, yet highly entertaining and engaging. Nothing Mind-blowing.
- Upgrade/Perk system does not distract, upgrades and unlocks depending on your playstyle.
- Soundtrack is brilliant, including 3 fake German songs.
- Negative... Not enough fake Nazi music.
I wish more modern shooters could feel this good, buy it if you like FPS.
A solid rebootDBOT187 | Aug. 15, 2014 | See all DBOT187's reviews »
I quite enjoyed this reboot. It made me laugh, the gameplay was solid and its nice to see for once a studio stick to a single player only game and not shoehorn in multiplayer in for the sake of it.
Be warned its a 50GB download though and some of the textures are a bit low res (plus the options menu for graphical tweaking could have really been improved as its too technical and doesn't really tell you what it actually does)

Unexpectable return of great legend! One the best games of 2014! Cool, cool and again COOL! For all FPS lovers it will be an incredible addition to the gaming collection! Cut story short, the New Order is a game about american soldier whose purpose is to destroy Nazi's regime and free world from Germain expansion. The best side of new Wolfenstein is a hurricane gameplay: kill enemies everywhere, use old and modern weapon, travel through amazing locations. Wolfenstein The New Order is an excellent first-person shooter which makes you to feel spirit of oldschool! MUST HAVE!
The return of the first-person shooter.PrimalHunter779 | July 28, 2014 | See all PrimalHunter779's reviews »
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.
Damn, that was awesome.Duracell410 | July 22, 2014 | See all Duracell410's reviews »
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.
