Jun 25, 2014Wolfenstein: The New Order feels like a game which really shouldn’t work. It transplants the feeling of a ’90s first person shooter into 2014; yet also has enough sense to mix in elements of modern game design to ensure it doesn’t feel antiquated. It is an action game which is fully functional as a stealth game. Its narrative is equal measures serious and ludicrous. Its lead character is a superman who feels vulnerable.

Gameplay is both old and frustrating (run, shoot, stop to pick up ammo, run, stop to pick up ammo, shoot, stop to pick up armour *yawn*) the cut-scenes are intrusive or overly long (get up make coffee wait for action to start again) and the AI is both dumb and glitchy.
Worst of all it's just boring. I gave up half way through to watch a Tom Cruise movie - that's how boring this game is. Avoid.… Full Review »

you will be so disappointed in this game if you get it. you'll want to buy it, because it's wolfenstein, and bethesda had a hand in its making...but i assure you, you will regret your decision if you purchase this. you will feel ripped off.
don't look at the writer reviews on IGN or Gamespot, etc., or look at the nice screen shots they show....they're only for the PS4/PC version. The PS3 version is garbage. It's almost like they want you to buy a PS4 to get a PS3 experience, by making the PS3 version look like PS2 or PS1.
If you read my review, and still purchase this game, I promise you...these words will haunt you.… Full Review »

Bethesda again lives up to its infamous reputation of releasing broken games on the PS3...would score this 7.7 really but since metacritic doesn't allow decimals.....7 is all I'm giving.… Full Review »
