Wolfenstein: The New Order - Train to Berlin Gameplay
Autoplay On Off
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.
May 20, 2014Its mechanics are shallow, its gunplay is simple, and its story is something out of World War II obsessive’s wet dream. However, the things it gets right it does really well. The stealth is handled perfectly, the inventory and character progression are really well done, and the combination of regenerating health and pickups is actually something I wouldn’t mind seeing in future shooters.
May 20, 2014What a fantastic game. Downloaded it from the marketplace, as i wanted a good single player game. Thats exactly what i got, but not good-What a fantastic game. Downloaded it from the marketplace, as i wanted a good single player game. Thats exactly what i got, but not good- extreamly good! What a truly fantastic story, with great voice acting. Not only that, but coupled with lots of collectibles, secret rooms, crazy weapons, and a crazy but effective twist on the ww2 setting- makes for an excellent game everybody should play. This game is one of the best story games iv'e ever played infact. Also, you can go guns blazing or stealthy on most levels! Highly reccomend this game for anyone who wants a truly thrilling experience… Expand
Nov 22, 2015Hands down the best FPS on the PS3. I've completed about 25 shooters on the system and this one takes the cake. Nevermind the users/reviewersHands down the best FPS on the PS3. I've completed about 25 shooters on the system and this one takes the cake. Nevermind the users/reviewers who give the game a low rating because they couldn't beat it or cos their system was laggy or cos it's not COD or Battlefield, it's better than both. The storyline is top notch, the characters are well thought out, the graphics look like it could be on the PS4, the level design is great, and there's a great mix of cut scenes and action (unlike the Fallout series where you spend most of the game watching cut scenes) The musical score in this game also kicks ass and there's a huge replayeability factor sicne you can gain new skills from your playing style. Game-wise I can't think of another FPS on the PS3 that handles like this, the closest probably being FEAR 2.
It's hard to think of anything bad to say about the game but if I really had to be critical, I guess a multiplayer mode would have been nice. Then again, they probably spent most of the time developing the single story mode which could explain why there isn't a multiplayer. Also sometimes the story can get a bit confusing if you're not following along. Lastly, the most annoying thing in the game for me was the tiny text on the documents you collect and newspaper clippings you can read. It would have been nice to have a zoom feature as the writing is imperceptible unless you have a 30'' TV screen or higher.
But nonetheless, if you haven't played this game yet you're really missing out.… Expand

There can be some muddy textures and some pop-in, but it's nothing that drags the overall experience down. The framerate remained buttery smooth throughout and overall everything looks incredibly pretty. I've noticed some people complaining about glitches, but I've played through the game twice and I haven't run into a single one (but maybe I just got lucky).
I've always been a huge Wolfenstein fan, but the series has never been known for its narrative. Going in, I expected a fun, competent shooter - but I got so much more. While the premise of giant Nazi robots makes the entire setup sound ridiculous, the game gets so many things right on a narrative level - the heroes are complex and relatable and the setting is dripping with atmosphere.
The gameplay is excellent, allowing for a lot of exploration, experimentation, and player freedom. There's plenty here for both stealthy gamers or those who like to go in guns-blazing (and even that has some added depth, allowing for either crazy duel-wielding or a cover system that allows for a more tactical approach).… Expand

A Rollercoaster of Emotions
Wolfenstein the New Order is a 9 and a half hour long first person shooter set in an alternate reality where the Nazis won in world war 2
Without spoiling the story, you play as us special forces operative captain blazkowicz, who’s been out of it for 14 years to learn its 1960 and the us lost
And you set out to rescue your squad and of course take down some Nazis…
The New Order is probably one of the most intriguing first person shooters I’ve played through…
not only thanks to the story of living through alternate history.. But because of how your characters story is told, there’s revenge, love, everything… your journey feels personal instead of generic...
You’re not some forgettable throwaway soldier like you get in most every other first person shooter campaign
And because of this this campaign immerses you deep inside of its world…
This isn’t your typical run and gun campaign..
There’s tons of variety here, missions will have you scaling buildings for targets... going in with stealth, infiltration, and undercover missions…
You never know what the game is going to throw at you keeping the campaign feeling fresh…
There are a variety of weapons and enemies to deal with, and the game mixes things up with a laser gun you get to cut through chain and metal in the game, giving you alternate routes inside of rooms and again stopping this game from just feeling constantly run and gun… you’re not forced to shoot here most of the time, as you can just go in missions with stealth taking out everyone from behind…
but if you do choose to shoot there are plenty of weapon choices and the ability to dual wield guns..
Enemies drop plenty of ammo... but eventually your laser gun is upgraded and able to shoot with unlimited ammo, though it has to be recharged so you’re not waiting for it to recharge on its own at a painfully slow rate after every couple of shots…
Combat can feel challenging if you’re not the stealthy type... especially thanks to the scouts that will call for back up if you don’t take them out before you start shooting...
You do have health that will regenerate slightly... but there are health packs and armor around which seem in abundance at the beginning... but towards the end you’ll be begging for them...
Mission structure all for the most part feels the same.. You’re given a map which rarely helps... I found myself just stumbling around the map until I found the item I was supposed to interact with...
Not the greatest natural progression... but I only felt lost a few times throughout my journey to the end..
I was having a lot of fun with this game thanks to its story and level design... however for me the 2nd half of this game really starts to feel a bit generic and I was ready for this game to be over hours before the final showdown…
While I do feel the final stretch of the new order is a drag, load times are painfully slow, and the occasional lock picking in this game is the worst and most annoying lock picking in video game history
The New Order offers a really unique experience worth picking up and seeing out through to its end

Yes, if you're one that only likes to buy or play video games in general that are of quality control. It's a very simple game, though a "perks" system completely allows one to play as they wish, which is something the majority of first person shooters of the seventh gaming generation have been missing. The game is extremely fun and contains a great story and voice acting, though the graphics believe it or not are worse than the Play-Station 3 launch title Resistance: Fall of Man.… Expand
May 21, 2014the graphics/textures and rendering are abysmal. this looks like a PS2 or even PS1 game. no joke. hard to believe that bethesda stamped theirthe graphics/textures and rendering are abysmal. this looks like a PS2 or even PS1 game. no joke. hard to believe that bethesda stamped their name on this thing. the cut-scenes are abrupt and the animations are choppy...and you can't hear what the characters say most of the time because the sound-mixing is atrocious. glitches galore. examples include: enemies getting stuck and running in place, you getting stuck and having to reset, and even weapons getting stuck in walls. also, it auto-saves constantly...which is fine, except it shows a huge, bright white circle spinning on your screen for long periods of time every couple minutes...it's distracting.
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.… Expand
