"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.

It should be said that Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is a successful pre-sequel that can be described as a separate game from The New Order and praised it. Using more cinematic techniques and more fluid gameplay , it will be possible for those who have not even experienced the previous version to have a re-run with this series. The Old Blood is the same as an expansion for a traditional PC game should be And if you were satisfied with the previous game, then you're sure to like the old blood and it may even be more than the original game because of its atmosphere.
I've loved the Wolfenstein games since the good ole' days. This game seems to capture the same feelings I got when playing the old ones, but with much more visceral combat and stunning graphics. I thoroughly enjoyed this game and will most likely play it again when I want that feeling back again.
The story isn't quite as character-driven as the first game, and there's a stealth section that gets a bit repetitive early on, but once it's over, things get awesome. The game spends more time letting you play it than the last game did, and what there is to play is fantastic. Is that a rocket pistol? Yes, yes it is. The challenge mode is awesome, the game's not as campy as some were expecting (campy is not a bad thing!); it's very much in line with The New Order in a good way. so yeah, if you liked The New Order, I'm pretty sure you're going to love The Old Blood. Glad we're finally able to actually visit Wolfenstein--was surprised we never encountered it in The New Order, but I'm okay with that. I love this game.
Similar to The New Order, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood takes place before The New Order in 1946 where BJ (the main character) has to stop the Nazi's from winning the war. BJ has to infiltrate Castle Wolfenstein in an attempt to steal the coordinates to General Deathshead?s compound. In the second part of the game BJ searches 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. The weapons are also similar to The New Order and the story isn't in as much as depth as The New Order, if you've played The New Order or are even interested in either of them I'd recommend getting both, both really fun games!
Again very good game from the Wolfenstein series. Old Blood is the prequel to The New Order, offering a solid, spoiler-free and, above all, seamlessly overlapping explanation of the events before the final battle for Europe. The graphics remain at the same high level, the gameplay has been slightly changed (the focus is more on stealh than in the main game and the laser cutter has been replaced by two pipes, with which one can fight with and climb). The story is once again fantastically told and is accompanied by coherent inner dialogues by the protagonist; But Old Blood, unlike the main game, treats a more morbid, more supernatural version of the war (in contrast to the very futuristic and technology-oriented New Order). The return of Old Blood is still very high, although the variety of collectable objects is significantly lower than in the original game. In addition, Old Blood has only 8 chapters compared to the 16 from the main game. In fact, the Campaign is completed in about 6-7 hours, where you collect the collected objects or play the new challenges. Overall, The Old Blood is worth the price.
