Wolfenstein®: The New OrderTM reignites the series that created the first-person shooter genre. Under development at Machine Games, a studio comprised of a seasoned group of developers recognized for their work creating story-driven games, Wolfenstein offers a deep game narrative packed with action, adventure and first-person combat.
Intense, cinematic and rendered in stunning detail with id® Software’s id Tech® 5 engine, Wolfenstein sends players across Europe on a personal mission to bring down the Nazi war machine. With the help of a small group of resistance fighters, infiltrate their most heavily guarded facilities, battle high-tech Nazi legions, and take control of super-weapons that have conquered the earth – and beyond.
Armed with a mysterious advanced technology, the Nazi’s unrelenting force and intimidation brought even the most powerful nations to their knees. Awakened from a 14-year coma to a world changed forever, war hero B.J. Blazkowicz emerges into this unimaginable alternate version of the 1960s.

I went into this expecting a fun but mindless, generic shooter. Turn out Wolfenstein: The New Order is one of the most well crafted single player stories in recent memory. The story is incredibly well written and the characters surprisingly well rounded (especially considering the main character basically describes himself as a nazi killing machine). The gun play is fun, fast-paced and completely over the top (you can dual wield machine guns and shotguns...) and the game gives you the option between being stealthy and going all out - both options are valid and allow you to unlock different skills. What impressed me the most though, even though it might seem like a minor thing to most, is the use of the camera during cutscenes. Most games don't really think about framing (especially not AAA games) but this one had actually good cinematography during cutscenes, which give it that extra polish that made it stand out for me
Wolfenstein: The New Order has players stepping back into the boots of B.J. Blazkowicz, an American war hero and Nazi-killing guru, after Germany won World War II and conquered the world. I loved the action and smooth gameplay mechanics in TNO, but I wasn't as impressed with the atmosphere. For example: Berlin, the capital of the world-dominating Third Reich, felt both empty and desperate. This is a far-cry from the impressive, vain, and elegant megacity of a powerful and advanced empire that the developers seemed to be going for. In addition, I didn't much care for the inability of the Nazis to react to resistance threats in their own (seemingly-abandoned) capital. All in all, it's a great game with plenty of satisfying gunplay, enemy variety, and gritty action. The complaints I had with this game seem to miss the point of playing, but they were still enough of an annoyance for me to rate this game 4/5. I definitely recommend picking this up if you haven't played before.
Just when you thought that Wolfenstein wouldn't return, Bethesda striked back with a new Wolfenstein game. I have to applaud Bethesda actually, for delivering such a solid game without ruining it or adding extra DLC. Look, The New Order actually is a tremendous adventure that you will go through and you will wish that the game wouldn't end, mark my words. The New Order has to do about an alternative scenario of WWII, which the Nazis won the war. But even at those times, there are people that wanna bring it down and fight to make a change. And here, B.J. Blazkowicz joins to tell you about it (I'm not gonna spoil the game). First things first... brilliant mechanics. The shootings were so much fun, and by the way it has a nice arsenal of guns (but not really huge). It has nice scenery, nice story, overall it is astonishing in a lot of things, but there's one thing that kind of disappointed me and other people... and that is not being able to play two different campaigns or at least different stages here and there (I'm not gonna spoil anything, you will figure out what I'm saying at one point while you're re-playing the game). Don't mind me, but I'm gonna say that it IS well executed, though for sure it could have some changes here and there. For only 19.99$, and without having to spend extra money for DLC's, it is a great experience. It took me around 16 - 17 hours to complete it, but it is what it is. Anyhow, Wolfenstein: The New Order is a MUST game to own that includes a lot of action, in my opinion. Machine Games studios did a great job.
The gameplay of this game is one of the most fascinating parts of the game. The gameplay is based on the technology that the Nazis gained in the 1960s. The boundless charm of a new world that has been observed in fewer games. The gameplay is very wide and diverse. Another factor that has led to this game being taken into account is the use of a powerful graphic. The game environment has a high level graphics that can make the game even more appealing. Of course, the most difficult game graphics problem is the latent loading of game textures. On face design, it's also very interesting, and the main characters of the game have an impressive face design. Another important part in the graphics section is the lighting of the game. In this game, an interesting lighting has been introduced. Of course, at many stages, you'll see a perfect lighting, but in some other missions, lighting is completely unprofessional in the game. Musics in games is another factor which the game drive you to its charms, and many players are due to the music complete the game. In this title, music is also included at the acceptable level in the game. Interesting music in the game menu is one of the fascinating music that makes you entertained at the very beginning of the game! Finally, Wolfenstein's title, The New Order, was able to meet expectations somewhat. The game is completely in action and excitement is perfect, and it's a true shooter. Trying this fascinating title is never a breeze because almost all the elements of an ideal shooter lie in the game.
One of the factors that made Wolfenstein: The New Order so attractive to me is the storyline. The story of this game has a fascinating innovation, and it makes it easy for any player to care about the story. it goes back to World War II, but with a little BIG change and it is that the Nazis has won in World War II! This will intrigue players to realize how the world could continue to emerge after the victory of Nazis! there are different characters that shape the story in this fascinating game, The game's amazing character design is one of the most highlights of The New Order . This game is completely perfect in action and excitement, and it's a true FPS.
