"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.

This game was extremely painful to play, i have one of the most high end PC's out there today. And i played this game on a steady 1 - 19fps. Boy was it painful, this game is like any other classic wolfenstein game, however the plot line was pretty pointless and it felt sorta waste of my time. Looking around for a piece of paper the whole time, feels rather empty its a sequel but empty. The longevity of a game should only be extended by a plot twist, or a longer more emotional part of the game; but no its zombies for some god damn reason. BTW this game is not the main story line, this is contextualised to before NEW ORDER.
The Old Blood consists of two interconnected yet different parts which makes it a distinct experience compared to The New Order, and even manages to do perfectly its job as a prequel which is to engage the players and fans in the game's atmosphere. The game, like The New Order, has been trying to provide a great environment for exploring and even for a short while succeeds it immerse the player in its details. also the presence of zombies and discovering Helga's secret and these elements change the style of the game continuously between action and adventure in the environment. The gameplay is exactly the same as The New Order but just this time with a little bit of special difference but not so much of course! the boss fights of the game are also more challenging compared to The New Order . so if you want know what led BJ Blazkowicz to become such a bad ass you should try this game!
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is a little more like movies and an interesting thing that most fans have been thrilled with this title is that you can adventure in the Wolfenstein Castle itself and hold two tubes in your hands as a weapon. It can be said that Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is considered to be a very good product as spin off, and with the Challenges included in the game, you can entertain yourself like two or three days compared the original version of the game released before it and it brings you back to the memorable Wolfenstein castle. I myself enjoyed this game more than The New Order, it was more like the Original Wolfenstein game and it has also some creepy zombies to kill too :) so if you are a fan definitely get this game especially if you saw it somewhere on sale because you won't regret it!
The story of the game is beautiful at first glance. But the numerous weaknesses in its narrative make it not so appealing. The fact that the rhythm of a story is too slow makes the player lose the story after a while. The "AI" of the enemies also depends on the degree of difficulty of the game. For example, in your easy mode, you can easily walk past several guards without anyone knowing it, but at higher levels, these guards can see you from the distance and from indirect angle of view. they will detect your location and come for you. The gameplay, although is slightly different from the classics and the old ones, and is more fancier, but it nevertheless maintains the main elements and has made a good experience for the fans of this genre or even this title. The game is powered by Id Software, the Id Tech 5. The same engine used to make the Rage game. This engine has been a standard engine for making the new generation games. But there are some defects, including low-quality textures that have been removed as much as possible in the game. The music plays a special atmosphere due to the specific story of the game. from classical music played in the Nazi camp which makes the soundtrack of the game completely memorable.
The Old Blood is a pre-sequel which is far more valuable than a dlc, and if you've played this game, you've definitely got to know that. In many major parts of this game, it reminds us Wolfenstein 3D, In its Gameplay, there is also a good variety between action and stealth genres that increase the excitement of the game and as an downloadable content for the original game, it has an acceptable quality. The Old Blood's story mode has two parts that focus both on the same subject and do not waste your time like some of the original game missions. The game, like The New Order, has been trying to provide a great environment for exploring for players. At the end, I must say that Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is a successful pre-sequel that can be described as a separate game from The New Order.
