"A great follow-up to The New Order, which cleverly reuses all of its best features and yet still finds time to add plenty of new elements of its own." -[Metro GameCentral]
"Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is a great follow-up to The New Order, adding plenty of adventures for BJ, not to mention new enemies, weapons, and more. Throw in the Nightmare stages and you have a compelling package with great value for your money." -[Softpedia]
Wolfenstein®: The Old Blood™ is a standalone prequel to the critically acclaimed first-person action-adventure shooter, Wolfenstein®: The New Order. The adventure, which spans eight chapters and two interconnected stories, features the hallmarks of MachineGames – thrilling action, immersive story and intense first-person combat. As war hero B.J. Blazkowicz, arm yourself with new weapons such as the bolt-action rifle and grenade-launching Kampfpistole as you attempt to thwart the advancing Nazi war machine, and take advantage of duel-wielding pipes that can be used for wall climbing – or for vicious take-downs of never-before-seen Nazi adversaries.
The year is 1946 and the Nazis are on the brink of winning World War II. In an effort to turn the tide in the allies’ favor, B.J. Blazkowicz must embark on an epic, two-part mission deep within Bavaria….
Part one of Wolfenstein: The Old Blood - Rudi Jäger and the Den of Wolves - pits BJ Blazkowicz against a maniacal prison warden as he breaks into Castle Wolfenstein in an attempt to steal the coordinates to General Deathshead’s compound. In part two – The Dark Secrets of Helga Von Schabbs – our hero's search for the coordinates leads him to the city of Wulfburg where an obsessed Nazi archaeologist is exhuming mysterious artifacts that threaten to unleash a dark and ancient power.
Experience MachineGames’ intense first-person combat as you brandish all-new Nazi-inspired weapons such as the bolt-action rifle, 1946 shotgun, and the grenade-launching Kampfpistole. Unlock your potential with a new set of perks for hi-octane action and vicious stealth take-downs.
Explore breath-taking set pieces featuring rural Germanic towns, sprawling valleys tangled with cable cars and bridges, ghostly catacombs, as well as a return to the iconic Castle Wolfenstein. Use dual-wielding metal pipes to navigate the world with brand new wall-climbing abilities.
Go up against a new cast of vicious villains and enemies, including legions of hulking new Super Soldiers, elite shock troops, drones and the darkest and most terrifying Nazi creations yet.

Many people are against dlc's as a concept i fall in the middle sometimes it feels like it's just made to make a quick buck but sometimes there are some good polished one's, the old blood is one of the better one's if you have played the original game (Wolfenstein the new order) and enjoyed it then i would recommend this game. This game has more nightmare missions then the original game if you liked the nightmare "mode" from the previous game then you might enjoy this since it has more of those
Wolfenstein: The New Order was one of my favorite action games in the last decade. Developers MachineGames didn't just create a worthy entry in the legendary Nazi-shooting series, they built a genuinely great FPS that would be an instant classic even without its heritage. The Old Blood is effectively a standalone expansion to that game, and while it inherits a lot of greatness, it's held back by a lack of ambition and a couple iffy design choices. Combat is mostly the same: intense, bombastic, visceral, and satisfying. Every weapon "feels" good to use, and yes, you can still dual-wield absurd things, like double shotguns. The unobtrusive cover system returns, helping you take potshots from safety without slowing the pace or locking you into cover. Stealth is mostly well-implemented, giving you a sneaky approach to many areas while keeping firefights a viable choice should you be spotted. The exception is unfortunately one of the first areas in the game, which leaves you sneaking unarmed around heavily armored super-soldiers locked to patrol routes. This sequence is slow and awkward like nothing else in the game. Environments in The Old Blood aren't quite as spectacular as some of The New Order's scenery, but they're still gorgeous and detailed. For that matter, the entire game looks great in action. The largest area where The Old Blood's lack of ambition hurts it is the plot. It's a prequel showing how B.J. Blazkowicz raids a Nazi compound to find the location of General Deathshead's fortress, the assault on which is the prologue of The New Order. The more limited scope and lack of time given to characterization means that the story is fairly average for the genre, which is disappointing compared to The New Order, which could hit you surprisingly hard. Still, The Old Blood retains the core of a great shooter. It's great to have more Wolfenstein, and while you're in the action it's as fun as ever. Just play The New Order first.
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is a prequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order. Well it supposed to be. To me, it is a little too over-the-top to really match up with TNO. And TNO had Space Nazis..... The same game-play is here from the TNO with no real no additions. Not that is a bad thing. Really if you liked the TNO, then you should like this game too. It's half the length or so of the TNO. Personally I just think Nazi zombies were a little too much for a prequel to the TNO. Maybe in the sequel it would have been better. Overall, If you want a solid shooter experience, then the Old Blood is hard to pass up. Just play The New Order first.
Pros: awesome gameplay, mini-game that lets you play original Wolfenstein 3D levels as Old Blood BJ (sprinting in O.G. Wolfenstein? Oh yeah!) with Old Blood weapons, easy to understand story, killing Nazi's in the heart of the 3rd Reich with their own guns and a bunch of other weapons, supernatural elements, perks, tons of collectables to find. Cons: Story is not very engauging, short singleplayer mode, Challenge mode is pretty boring. In conclusion: it could be better but hey, it's still a solid game. Fun, fast paced action and a good 'ol American boi doin' 1 thang 'an 1 thang only: killin' Natzi's. What's not to love? 8/10 - would shoot up the Waffen SS again.
Uno de los mejores juegos de primera persona! Las armas se sienten incre?bles y los enemigos son abundantes. Me lo pas? genial soplando horas y horas disparando a los nazis.
