Average User Score: 8.0May 23, 2014The ReReturn to Castle Wolfenstein...NO SPOILERS
Wolfenstein The New Order is exactly the kind of shooter I want to play.
It almost perfect in most ways. It doesn't pretend it's some epic blockbuster by using QTE. It's true to it's roots, and Machinegames did a superb job of delivering this title.
The story and the alternative time line is great fun given the subject is bleak and carnage is over the top, with limbs flying, heads popping, throat stabbing, there is humor still to be found. The atrocities committed by the Nazis are awful but remember folks it's just a game the real life was much worse.
The pacing is amazing and the levels are absolutely how they should be, incredible. It never feels like a corridor shooter, even as you are traversing a corridor :)
The gun play is really satisfying, the dual wielding, the perk system. The length is absolutely stop on , I think. It did not drag on and it was not finished too soon.
The secrets are fun to collect and it does not feel like a chore, as I said the environments are well thought out.
If had to nit pick on anything...here are some silly ones
How great would be to have this game with an MP add on? I simply love the SP but I have to imagine the MP would be a lot of fun.
Why can't I shoot up nazi flags ? Come on Next Gen LOL , I want to tear em up with the MP60.
Carrying a skinny german lady you are slower then carrying a gigantic turret gun .
The multi purpose buttons are too sensitive, the weapon wheal is too sensitive, why not notched wheal?I have died a few times trying to frag only to find myself starring at the weapon wheal.
I beat this on a PS4 and pretty soon I will play this on Steam, as I have played the other WS on PC for the most part. I have to say I am looking forward to playing it again.
The game looked pretty good and the frame rate was absolutely spot on except when I started playing on uber 999 mode it started to chug as the action was just to frantic.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.2Mar 13, 2014Pretty fun online only game, X1 or PC shooter. I passed on this on PC as EA is involved and is bound to be a catastrophic release as usual with them. Once the patches are in and bargain priced I will pick it up on PC, maybe ...
I've had xbox live for over 10 years so it is pretty disappointing to see this game drop frames quite often and have server issues. I could be wrong but I thought they whole we did not go 1080p to keep it at 60fps argument fails as it does suffer frame issues and screen tearing. A patch to address those two issues for me would raise this to a 9 for sure.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.1Mar 13, 201430 some years ago I started playing video games, in the arcades and on C64. I still play video games on most platforms. PC, consoles, handhelds.
The reaction of my kids when they started playing TFA is priceless. Within seconds it was screaming, laughing, joy. It reminded me of how I reacted to the games I played in the arcades so many years ago.
We are going to play this for a long time...
We played on PS4 with two controllers and a ps vita but I plan on getting this on steam as well to support the game developer, such a good job!!!
We just need another controller now.
Love it, it's a lot of fun and a challenge for sure. INSTANT PIXEL PERFECT CLASSIC.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.6Mar 13, 2014Outrageously fun and hilariously funny outrages game. If you like South Park even a little there is so much fun to be had being part of their little mountain town. The game is turn based RPG but it is so well done that even during fights it hard not to laugh.
There is no difference in the presentation of the show and the game it self, so the game graphics are 100% balls-deep on the money.
Killing a nazi zombie kitten that shouts nazi voice clips at you and then finding shiny boots as junk item, well does it get any better then this. Oh yes it does...
Talking about polish ...wow... no bugs, I played for hours and the game is solid as a mountain rock. So refreshing to get a new game that is not broken right out of the bat.
I don't think there is a better movie/series license game out there. DLC and sequels are more then welcome.
Are you not entertained...

Average User Score: 6.3Nov 27, 2013I played B3 on PC a lot but since I wanted to play B4 on new consoles I picked it up for ps4 and xbox one. I have friends on both that I play with.
The xbox one version just does not run as good as ps4, I don't know what the peeps at ign are smoking but in the week prior to xbox release we played a lot of b4 and virtually encountered no slow down, at one point I saw 4 people fire rockets at each other in a hallway and it slowed down for a slip sec. While firing the game up on x1 we almost immediately noticed the slow down both in sp and mp.
xbox one on the other hand has regular slow down, even when running you get frame drops and the jaggies oh the jaggies. That does not mean it is not fun, its a lot of fun on both consoles but the ps4 has better/more fluid graphics while the online experience on the x1 is better.
While I have been getting crashes on both consoles the ps4 def has more of them. I never got really to try the conquest mode on ps4 but playing conquest on x1 for 30 min and then crashing is not nice as well.
Sure we should all forgive them as these are new consoles with bugs and what not. Still sucks that the first map pack (to my knowledge) are recycled from b3.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.7Oct 31, 2012Alright I have to be harsh here, as I wanted to enjoy this game but so far it has been boring me. Will it get better after 15 hours? Maybe, but so far it has been boring. Controlling your character feels like controlling a drunk bicycle, many times when I wanted to approach a door to open it I would climb it instead. The shadows looks really bad, what is this dotted mess supposed to be? Yes it does look better then the previous games but it… Expand
Average User Score: 5.3Oct 3, 2012Always fun to see the web trool army in action. This is not a bad game, it's far from perfect but a bad game it is not. Since when are RE games perfect!!!!
I've only beat Leons campaign so far so ...it's a 6.5/7 for me but I am giving it a 10 since some of the reviews are just stupid. Yes the boss battles were weak so far, QTE are too numerous and half a**d and the camera is fighting you as much as zombies, the field of view is not as good as in 5 or 4, but I still had fun playing with a buddy. Why is there no health bar on the bosses?! well so that they can build their set pieces around it which is a big fail for me as it takes the challenge and fun out of it. Some stuff was just plain bad, Statue sequence and vacu-bots-mine-thingies were really stupid too and should get some one fired at Capcom
. Leon's campaing tries to be RE4 too much and the set pieces feel forced and timing feels off on a lot of the stuff. It's easier to list all the negatives but I feel these need to be mentioned. Even with all of this it still has atmosphere, WTF moments, uber the top gore...so you can have FUN with it, if you are looking for anything more then that you should pass.… Expand
