    Bethesda is turning into EA. It's obvious that this is barely a mediocre gaming experience, and yet everyone praises it. Why?! It's the same game as the first Wolfenstein except worse from every technical aspect. Just a generic, nazi shooting game and it's poorly done. How does that happen in 2017.

Graphics are exactly the same as before only now the game chokes on shaders, LODs and other inane, unnecessary crap that in turn, amps up the system requirements for NO GOOD REASON. Also, crashes, freezes, lags. Seriously? What a load. To hell with its "messages", characters and whatever else you find to praise undeservedly. If it were a movie, this would make SOME sense. This is a game, and it's barely playable, so who cares about the characters, and political statements? Managed to bore me to tears in three levels. Utter nonsense. Expand

    I gave this game a Zero on release because it crashed and gave black screen and was unplayable. After the first update the game works now smoothly have not had a problem yet with R9 290 at 1080p Ultra settings. Some of you may still have problem but I am speaking for me and my hardware.

    Now on to the game itself. Well the game is fun if you loved The New Order then you will love this

    I hate all propaganda they put in games and moves and bunch of pure politician Bullsh*t and incorrect historical information and events. But this is the world we're living in today its based on a Lies. Either you play the game and ignore these stuff just like me or you skip the game. This game mostly base on shooting stuff and not a story driven game. If you are looking for story then there are better game choices out there.

    Be aware of all the critic reviewers today. They all have been payed on every big game made by a big company like Bethesda, EA, Ubisoft and so on. And most of the Critics gives the same reviews to PC as Consoles when they only played it on Console. Most of them have NO IDEA how the game run on PC. This is getting out of hand and there is absolutely no reliable source no more. To hell with this evil world... Do not trust the critics wait and see for yourself how the game is and runs by watching videos on release.

    Despite that i got a few hours out of it without crashing today and only minor issues with audio and video. The real issue was how bad the game is. If you ignore the cutscenes and setting, with the worst characters i have ever seen in a video game, you can get a few decent hours of fun out of the shooting, the problem is that you can't separate the plot, story and characters from the game.

    It beats you over the head with some of the dumbest commentary i have ever listened to. It's so bad it's like a caricature of a caricature. when you go that far it just becomes silly and tiresome. Idk what Bethesda was thinking giving this game to anyone in Sweden. but they've managed to pull a Mass Effect Andromeda in the worst possible way.

    The only people who will enjoy this are people who can ignore everything but the few hours of gunplay it gives you.

    Enjoyed the previous games. But this seems to be Bethesda laziness showing as usual. They haven't really created anything new and this just seems to be a rehash of what they had before with some blended cutscenes, like what they did with Fallout 4.

    The other part is there are numerous bugs and performance issues, again just like Fallout 4. I'm not sure what's happening at Bethesda

    Definitely not worth $59. Rent or wait until it goes on discount.

    Sadly, there are a lot more problems than just the politics. The characters themselves, the character models, dialog, and story are terrible. My favorite person in the game was Sigrun Engel. What does that say about the other characters in the game, including BJ?

    The actual game play is good, but it's almost impossible to enjoy the game considering all of the other flaws. It's hard to believe this game was made by the same developer that made the last game. I really liked that game. Now it seems like even that game is tarnished. It makes me wonder if some of the programmers from Mass Effect Andromeda got hired by Machine Games.

    I was wrong.

    The whole central point of wolfenstein was killing nazis. This game instead tries to make it as if you are what the far left believes is the antithesis of nazis: Communist revolutionaries. This game isn't fun, it's politics with some gameplay.

    The gameplay is extremely bland. They wanted to make this a story game but the plot is awful. The level design is worse.

    The game itself is extremely unstable and crashes frequently. The only people that would defend this game are partisan to the politics endorsed by it.

    What a sad follow up to a great series. The PC version is ludicrously buggy, and is clearly not ready for release yet. This is probably more on the publisher than the developer, but, from a consumer standpoint, its hard to see a distinction.

    The 'punch a Nazi' refrain goes well beyond the traditional villains of the series and expands the virtue signaling to anyone who is white. We discover our hero was abused as a child by his white father who, surprise surprise was a terrible racist and anti-semite. We discover that the great hope for the world is the multi-ethnic group of resistance fighters which are a carbon copy of other SJW productions like Star Wars The Force Awakens.

    The developers here have gone OUT OF THEIR WAY to push a particular narrative here and it is visible in the opening minutes of the game and continues throughout. Its poison, and it should be rightly rejected and called out for the damage it is doing not only to gamers, but to what is left of Western Civilization.

    Gameplay - 5/10, gunplay doesn't feel powerful, levels are extreme corridor-minded. AI, super agressive - cool BUT you are can die from 3-5 good landed bullets even on easiest difficulty. You'll be dying a lot and you'll rage because epic moments gonna be ruined by insta-death from nowhere.
    Story - 6/10 - US under nazi setting is old and doesn't really work. Character's actions are not very natural.

    I start a game, excited and so on, it is Wolfenstein II let's kill some nazies.. oh.. what I'm looking at? Some unneeded drama from main hero's childhood. For some reason main hero is super attached to a character who was just a cardboard background in 1st game? O_o... Ooookay. Further cutscenes are trying to show me why Nazi's are a bad thing - I get it... but where is cheesy killing mfking nazies action I loved 1st game for? Nope.. still don't see it.

    Next 2-3 hours into the game, I'm raging because of super sensitive main hero's health bar.. it drops from 1 bullet to 10%... I lower difficulty level, nope, still same **** - AI is shooting with 100% precision. Oh! Epic moment, huge experimental soldier-robot appears in the middle of corridor, and...... shoots me dead with 1 bullet,replay from checkpoint>replay from checkpoint>replay from checkpoint>replay from checkpoint.... "i'd better stop playing for today.. may be tomorrow".

    So.. you get the idea. BUT I'd say it is very classic FPS from 2000-2005 times. Sadly gameplay is absolutely NOT like DOOM, which was fun, adictive, balanced.

    overall score: 6... sadly.

    To address both, no it is not a SJW peice, it is rather condemning of a Nazi ideology though so if that makes you uncomfortable maybe have a conversation with yourself.

    And secondly, the game is about as well optimised and polished a release on PC this year, hell even the last few years. Both this and Destiny 2 are fantastic examples of how to leverage the power of PC and deliver a visually stunning experience, with performance that scales very well across various configurations.

    The gunplay is fantastic, story is engaging, visual and aural presentation is phenomenal...honestly a standout title of the year. The current 5.6 user rating it has on metacritic is sadly a reflection of the community of gamers and not at all representative of the quality of this title

    This game is seriously badass! Weapons feel great! They really pack a punch which makes shooting nazis very very satisfying. I love how slick and smooth movement feels. The graphics are an eye-candy. I spent much of the game just looking at how nicely detailed the enviroment is, especially when exploring Eva's Hammer. The post-war enviroments combined with some very cool soundtracks and sound design make for a great atmosphere which makes just simply moving around in the world a delight.

    Another thing I loved is how lovable each character in the story is. Everyone feels really fleshed out, there's great chemistry between the Kreisau members and the voice acting is top-notch! The cinematics between gameplays are great especially during some wonderfully done comedic moments.

    BAD

    Wolfenstein II is very badly optimized and extremely demanding. Even though I have more powerful hardware than the recommended requirements I still had to lower Image Streaming down 2 levels to High and Shadow Quality down 1 level to Ultra. Even then I still had some very noticeable FPS drops in certain expansive areas. I had just upgraded my PC specifically so I could play this game on max, so this was very disappointing.

    Furthermore, for a game that gives you the power to be a hardcore killing machine it gives you very little opportunities to fully unleash your fury and shoot and destroy to your heart's content. In quite a few action sequences I was like "yeaah finally let's shoot some nazis bang bang die die!" and 20 seconds later everyone is dead. I mean, the action was still satisfying, but I felt like much more could have been done by letting you go on an insane killing spree every once in a while.

    However, I am extremely disappointed - the writing is plain bad, the humor and humanity so present in the first game vanished and were replaced by unfunny jokes by unlikeable characters. The impact and authentic emotions portrayed in New Order are just not there, it feels forced and is so badly written that the only thing missing are full-on fart jokes.

    And then there's the gameplay. The level design here is abysmal. You frequently have no idea what to do or how to get there. You're stopped by invisible walls, ledges that can't be jumped on for no apparent reason, vague objectives. The combat feels worse than in the previous game. All in all, this is a much, much worse game than the stellar Wolfenstein New Order. Avoid.

Wherever you went it was all about ruins and hangars. The other chapters were interesting to explore while in The New Colossus I was eager to finish the level as quickly as possible.
    The humor was awful, not to mention the political thematic and the racism that were leading throughout the whole game.
    The different weapons dual wielding wasn't a bad idea but it was terribly executed.
    Side missions- beyond terrible.
    Somebody should' ve put a mini map or some signs in the submarine, because I spent nearly half an hour to find where the bloody aircrafts are...
    Collectibles were basically impossible to spot, I guess the idea of the collectibles are to be more or less highlighted so when you get your eye on them, to know that is a collectible and just a common object.
    The only good thing about the game was the music, especially while in combat.
    I hope that Bethesda will read some user reviews and the next game will be better done, because overall The New Colossus is nothing more than a catastrophe.

    PROBABLY THE WORST SHOOTER I HAVE ENCOUNTERED THIS YEAR. I liked Wolfenstein New Order and did not mind the Old Blood spin off either. Both had decent stories and enjoyable balanced game play. Then along came the New Colossus. Its well named because in my opinion this is a colossal mess, in every sense.

    PROBABLY THE WORST SHOOTER I HAVE ENCOUNTERED THIS YEAR. I liked Wolfenstein New Order and did not mind the Old Blood spin off either. Both had decent stories and enjoyable balanced game play. Then along came the New Colossus. Its well named because in my opinion this is a colossal mess, in every sense.

    Lets start with the game play. Most of the weapons that worked so well in the other games are missing much of the up-gradable aspects that made them fun to use and more importantly effective against waves of enemies. By contrast the latest game might as well have armed you with a spoon and a blunt bread knife. The result of under-powered weapons is an exhausting corner shooter where if you are lucky you can use a choke point to pick off opponents one or two at a time. If not be prepared to die again and again even on lower difficulty settings. The balance on hit points to armour and health seems horribly skewed in favour of your opponents too. Just to make a frustrating un-enjoyable experience even more so.

    Putting aside the crummy game play is an equally crummy story that makes no sense in the context of the past game stories, holding together about as well as a Chinese Rolex. Unlikable key characters don't help either nor does a overdose of political correctness with a dash of misandry. Being a white male, who of course no doubt makes up the majority of players, is seemingly, not such a good thing if this nonsense is to be believed. A Gone with the Wind long string of pointless video cuts scenes does not help things along either.

    Lastly to top off this crap sandwich there's the bugs. I could not get this game to run on my high end gaming rigs native resolution of 1920 x 1080 and instead had to apply a setting I have not used in many years. I also had to tone down the high end textures and graphics I paid handsomely for, for no obvious reason.

    Is there any upside? Well the graphics, even on lower settings, are nice and the level design creative and interesting.

    Regrettably that's all I find to like here. I have played games since Space Invaders days and I know the gaming world inside out. For me this title epitomizes what poor game design looks like which is inexplicable as the previous games in the series whilst not show stopping, were least playable and enjoyable.

Above all this - IT JUST ISN'T FUN! All of the things I've listed so far are annoyances or little things, but above all of that I'm just not having fun playing it.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I give it a 3/10 for sheer visual effort most of which is taken care of by id's engine anyway. The game is insanely short, just when it starts to get going -- it ends. I felt like I was watching a bad movie with an okay FPS shooter sprinkled around it. There are massive gameplay flaws relating to ammo and overall direction in the game that will leave you tearing your hair out at how frustrating some points can be. I never felt Wolfenstein needed a more fleshed out story but here we are I guess -- and how does that story pan out? Terribly. The main villain is defeated unceremoniously by an FMV sequence and the game ends. Such a cop out honestly. Expand

    another problem is politics. the inclusion of bj's father. the stereotypical boogie man of the click bait press: straight white male, wife beater, anti-semite, racist anti black, complaining about the plight of the straight white male.

There will be situations where I have to hunt for minutes to find the way forward, and even scenarios where I can hear the enemies running and shouting but cannot find them. I can't emphasize how bad the level design is; this game feels like an expensive chore.
    -The default enemy encounter involves a bunch of soldiers/robots/dogs and a commander who can trigger endlessly spawning enemies. But ANY enemy spotting you triggers the alarm, even if said commander is sixteen rooms over. So you can either attempt stealth or dash for the commander and pray that enough shots miss you that you don't have to reload. Sadly, stealth in this game is not functional or fun. So grab that rosary and get ready to reload often!
    -You can double-fist any weapon in the game, but the interface for switching weapons is BEYOND AWFUL. Let's say that you're dual wielding silenced pistols and see an enemy that requires more firepower. Switching to your machine guns should be fluid, right? WRONG! You select the machine gun, but that leaves you with one machine gun and one pistol. So you press the machine gun key again, and you put away the pistol and fold out the stock on one machine gun. The THIRD press finally allows you to dual wield machine guns. But each of these transitions takes several seconds, and this is not a game where enemies will give you a chance to leisurely swap out weapons for ten seconds every time.
    -I'm not sure if it's the weapons bob, but movement in this game feels off and is slightly unsettling to my brain.
    -Plot and characters is really stupid. You're basically taking on all of occupied America with about twelve people, including old men and pregnant women.
    -The tone of the game is schizophrenic. You spend half the time moaning about dead friends and a broken body and the other half mowing down legions of Nazis with ease.

    Skip this game and play Doom 2016 again. As a Wolf:TNO fan I literally registered on Metacritic just to warn people off this game.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Oh boy. I dont know where to start... Well, first off lets just get the good things out of the way.
    The game was stable for me and ran very well with a mid-range PC. Probably due to all the patches since release.
    The graphics are pretty good and sometimes I was really impressed, like when a light source behind a characters ears made them light up red, like in real life. You can kill over the top bad Nazis.
    Yeeeaaahhh.... Well, thats about it.
    Now the bad.

    Ill get straight to the point: This game is proud to be a game made for racists, while claiming to be anti-racist (Nazi killing DUH!). It displays racist mentality and ideology all the time and sees it as good and even funny. But only against whites - and BJ agrees. The whole game is a complete and utter propaganda piece for modern neofascists. A few examples:

    Socialism/Antifa:
    Communists are the good guys. Forget history. Communists are the good guys now. Even though much more people died under Communism than under Nazism and held millions hostage for many decades. Who cares! They are our friends now and are displayed as funny and relatable, and contrary to real history, they didnt hook up with the Nazis instead (yes thats what German communists and socialists did, they were even in the SA - the vast majority of the SA)! Sure sure.
    Yet somehow they display them in the right light by accident. They fool stupid BJ easily when he meets them for the first time, like the liars and hypocrites they were in history.
    In the end credits you see resistance fighting, which almost exactly look like Antifa with "Rise" displayed and "Were Not Gonna Take It" playing in the background. Can you be even more obvious?

    Feminism:
    BJs girlfriend is displayed as a complete uber-woman, saving his life all the time, while being in the last few weeks of pregnancy. One scene is so ridiculous and obscene that I even fear this gets censored when I type it out. Lets just say it involves her saving BJ again, ripping off her clothes and then letting out a Rambo-yell while killing dozens of Nazis and getting showered completely in Nazi blood while grinning like a lunatic. Yes, you see it all.
    Also 70-80% of the resistance is female. A whole submarine with 80% women.
    The biggest racist is a woman too, btw. Shes more racist than the actual daughter of one of the worst Nazis depicted.
    Men are generally displayed as doofuses and **** Even the black ones.

    To make this all a little more logical: I have recently seen an interview with Bill Whittle on Youtube called "The Left Killed Star Wars". He explains in great detail how the left is doing propaganda and using old well known IPs to rewrite history (even in culture) and use it for their propaganda. This game falls perfectly into his prediction. It is exactly done like he explains. For example he says how they mostly do prequels to rewrite the story to their liking, ignoring what happened before or how characters were before, even if it completely contradicts the original lore.
    This game has a lot of sequences where BJs history is explained, and they do exactly what Whittle describes. Its amazing and disgusting at the same time.

    Well, this is a game, so lets also talk about the gameplay:
    Its boring and bland. The weapons are boring (you end up using the same 1 or 2 all the time and they dont even sound powerful), the difficulty of the game is just sheer numbers of enemies coming from all sides and you not being able to get into a well defendable position quickly enough. But if you play smart and always have enough ammo (which is easy), even the biggest enemies are a laugh and cant even hit you once before you kill them. You just sit back and let the enemies come to you and pick them off one by one. Yeah. Very thrilling...
    The maps are completely streamlined. Some rooms have several ways to enter (stealthy and ramboey), but its still straight forward.
    I only kept playing because the game made my jaw drop to the floor the whole time because of the blatant and extreme propaganda and I wanted to see if they can top it even more (and yes, till the end it gets worse and worse). I have honestly not seen such blatant propaganda anymore since I was in school and got taught about the horrible things Nazis and Soviets did and how they fooled their own people to believe their lies, made up their own "science".

    So all in all this games only purpose was very obviously the propaganda. The story is ridiculous and boring. The gameplay was the worst of them all. Even playing the old Wolfenstein 3D was more fun. Yes, I played every single part since the first one. I loved the series. Until now.

    My prediction for the next game: The twins of BJ will fight against more Nazis and they will be women, lesbian and/or transsexual while wearing communist symbols.

    Gameplay is repetitive and frustrating. The difficulty of the game doesn't stem from problem solving and some kind of skill cap, it stems from poor level design, enemies that constantly appear out of thin air behind you, and playing a character that seems to be wearing paper for armor.

    The story is cliche, but ok. My issue is that well over half the bloody game is wound up in long cutscenes or wandering around a horribly confusing U-boat doing errand missions.

    The fights are frustrating as you are constantly running around looking at the floor pounding the pick up key to grab armor shards and what not... you hardly get to spend any time actually shooting.

    As mentioned before, the level design is really piss-poor and horrifically un-intuitive. Half of the missions have you crawling through endless vent shafts or cloned hallways trying to find some obscure room or button. It's really not that fun.

    I thought the crazy bits were genuniely creative and well done, but the "serious" bits were very superficial, boring and drawn out. The characters, although plentiful, were one-dimensional and I didn't really care about any of them.

    The game itself is a lot of fun. Visually it looks great and runs very well, the controls feel good and the shooting is satisfying. Given the crazy unrealistic setting the enemies could have been a bit more diverse, particularly in terms of strategy, but they're still quite fun. The stealth mechanic is very questionable but luckily not forced.

    Very good game that keeps to it's roots. The graphics are great and what is the most fun is that this is a true first person shooter I've played since the last wolfenstein came out.
    The story is good, the animations, script, gameplay is great. There is a slight sjw element in this but thank god it's not overbearing.
    Best of all, no microtransactions, no lootboxes and no bs. Just a FPS

    I also love the heavy metal / rock music that plays throughout the game. The credits are great, I know it's weird I'm praising credits but the music mix is great at the end.
    Also I had zero performance issues or sound issues as everyone mentions. I think it's people just looking for reasons to **** on this game.

    while The New Order was new and fresh, and actually was a true "Wolfenstein" game, this one is nothing of the sorts.

    Instead here you're forced through endless stealth section, poorly executed, killing enemies with your axe. It's just stupid.

    Of course stealth sections were added to hide the fact that this game is 4-5 hours in length without them, it's a cheap gameplay tactic when you have no idea what to do, so you just thrown in lengthy stealth sections that will stretch the gameplay a few hours and call it a day.

    The next issue falls in the "Alien: Colonial Marines" (or No Man's Sky..) category: THIS GAME HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT WAS SHOWN AT E3!!! It's impressive that no one noticed that! They clearly rushed an unpolished and unfinished game, just to cash in on the success of previous Wolfenstein entries, without spending too much money on development. The games feels unfinished and released "as-is". There's nothing here of what was shown during the presentation.

    On the technical side, I was not expecting much, the idTech engine used here is old and it shows, but that's rarely an issue with me, I don't care much about graphics.

    Yes the game is very politicized and it has all the "pc" cliches, but that's a cheap trick to get high reviews today, don't fall for it. You make a bad movie/game, you throw in a woman/black/whatever hero and boom, you get 10/10. Same that happened with Star Trek: Discovery. But we should review the game here, not the politics, so I'm not commenting on it. And it should not cloud your judgement in anyway. In the end, Bethesda has to sell, like every company. And to sell you need to follow trends. Today "politically correct" is a trend, a sort of "product" to sell, and you have to exploit it if you want to survive. Then it's up to you making a good or bad product with it.

    I had no technical issues of the sort, no freezes, no crashes, nothing. But this does not change the fact that the game is as bad as it can be.

    Don't buy this game at full price, what until it drops to something like 29 or 39.

    I normally wouldn't bother writing a review but I'm writing one for this game to counter what I feel is undue praise heaped on a sub-mediocre game. There is absolutely nothing remarkable about this game, well at least nothing remarkably good(plenty of remarkably bad elements) First the minor but numerous problems: the graphics are sub-mediocre(would have been nice 8 years ago I suppose), the gun design is uninspired, the character design is generic, and the story is just sloppy. Taken together these minor flaws are enough to ruin any otherwise potentially good game however they are not the main problem with this FPS. The main problem I have with this game is that the controls are terrible. Swimming is ridiculously stupid, you feel like you're swimming through some extremely odd viscous fluid and you can only hold your breath for about 20s before you start taking damage. Beyond that traversing the world is made artificially difficult. You will often find yourself in position where any normal human being would jump a half a foot up, grab a railing and climb over it. In this game however such feats of common dexterity are made impossible resulting in janky puzzles you have to solve when you really just want to vault the f'ing railing. I find this type of gameplay/level design inexcusably amateur.

After some point all my save files were corrupted and caused bsod on start. Only game able to bsod my 4 year old pc and it has done it about 6 times. Weird texture bugs, some clipping problems are icing on the cake.
    While story and the characters being arguably good and voice acting perfect; in the first half of the game there is a cutscene or level transition for every 10 nazis you kill and it gets very annoying getting murderblocked like that. After every mission you go to hub and get some exposition, which promotes storytelling but diminishes gameplay. If you are expecting constant nazi killing and action, too bad. The storytelling parts are trying to give too many political messages, you'd think the game is made as progressive leftist propoganda material. It would be good if it had diversity and anti racism undertones but in here they tried to fit every issue ever brought up by leftists to this day. The mild wackiness of the previous titles has gone up to eleven and prevents you to take this game a bit more seriously. Hovewer intentionally or not, some moments are going to make you laugh out loud. There are no boss fights, the only thing closest to a boss is the big mechs similar to the previous titles. The ending makes the game feel like it's cut short, like MGSV.
    Gameplay is very similar to the previous titles with some new types of enemies like combat robots. For some reason footsoldiers have more health but armored enemies are weaker. You can upgrade your weapons and later in the game you can get some interesting character upgrades. Gameplay is bloody and fluid, enemies play agressively and will give you a fight but it doesn't mean they are smart.
    Game looks good and yields high performance even on older rigs. The only issue I had with graphics aside from bugs is the contrast, everything is either too bright or too dark. Good for setting a style, but hurts the gameplay.
    Overall, it can be bought a year or two later with DLCs as an actually finished and playable game, I recommend you to avoid it like plague in its current state and price.

No regenerating health (well you do regenerate up to the next 10 health points, whee), so if you don't constantly just keep pressing E all the time, you'll die. Sure, you can usually spot health bonuses and ammo, but when the sh*t hits the fan, good luck spotting this easy-to-miss items. So in firefights, you're just running around hitting E all the time.

    Sometimes you get stuck on the edges of obstacles that look like you should be able to get around, there's the stupid "hold a button to pick up an item" trope that makes you die when you're trying to unmount a heavy weapon. The controls and gameplay feel slow and sluggish, a horrible fit for this kind of game. There's terrible input latency, which would be fine for a JRPG, but for Wolfenstein or any really fast-paced shooter, this really hurts the quality of the gameplay severely.

    The graphics are just okay. They're not bad, but in 2017 in a major-budget action game, I expect a lot more. There's barely even any dynamic lighting. With games like Quantum Break showcasing passable global illumination a couple years ago, there's no excuse why Wolfenstein II shouldn't also be using some sort of GI technique, except that they went with the ID Tech 6 engine when better choices exist. While the graphics in this game won't make your eyeballs bleed, don't expect to have your socks knocked off.

    The often slow-paced and frankly boring-as-hell cutscenes really break up the gameplay momentum. Fortunately, you can skip these, and you might as well, since the story is unoriginal, uncreative, and just plain boring. At least the voice acting is good, but with such a boring story, it all goes to waste.

    This game is yet another overhyped pile of crap. If this is what people think is a good game, then I fear for the future of the video game industry in general. I hope you like free-to-play Android games, because if Wolfenstein II is any indication of what's considered cutting-edge triple-A material, then it won't be long until people get sick of AAA titles, stop buying them, and nobody makes them anymore.

    So don't get your panties in a bunch like a lot of others appear to have you'll get:
    - A wonderful game that ran smooth as silk for me. A lot of reviews seem to suggest otherwise so I might just have been lucky (hell I never even bothered updating my graphics drivers lol).
    - Excellent gun-play
    - Weapon customisation and a perk system that rewards your particular play style

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Before I could properly play the game, the game itself crashed my graphic drivers. I spent 2 hours, looking how to fix that, and all I had to do was, I just had to turn off motion blur.
    Game itself is meh. Stealth got ruined, if your shot is not well placed and an enemy spots you, that's it, the alarm will go up. Enemies can easily spot you and instantly alarm goes on, stealth mechanics in TNO were way better. You will not be able to complete a level 100% stealth. New guns feel weak, they sound like guns from CoD. Storytelling is kinda ok, but they push leftist agenda over proper storytelling.

    The leader of Kreisau circle dies, her place is taken by most unlikable character ever. Grace. MachineGames probably tried to make her look cool and badass, but I hated her, she tries to be a leader, she swears a lot, tells everyone what to do, and it made me cringe so hard. Creators of the game pushed most of that agenda through her (how America is weak and submitted to Nazi's, white people are racist, it's men's fault that Manhattan got nuked, "balls of steel" is a term, that Grace thinks should be more feminine and doesn't like that and the only ones that put up a fight against Nazis are mostly black people, so on and so on). From a zero-f*ck giving Nazi killing machine, Blazkowicz got turned into a little-b*tch, that constantly whines about everything. Internet is full of political correctness and such, I expected to play a game where I can brutally murder Nazi's but instead I got a game, where political correctness, anti-white propaganda is showed down your throat. Soundtracks aren't heavy metal anymore, which pumped me up in TNO, instead it's some loud music, even doing stealth plays. When you f*ck up during stealth in TNO, heavy metal starts playing. But here, the same type of music is playing throughout the level. Heavy enemies, for example supersoldaten are less threatening, and its enough to shoot half a clip of submachine gun into his head to kill him.

    During the section where you find out who is sending signals, Supersoldaten that are in Section F are the new type of Supersoldaten, not the old ones. Same goes for the new type of cyber-dogs, that you kill in a sealed off section of the U-Boat, when you try to close a gas leak. You can see how low of an effort was put in.

    During the most dangerous missions (for example the New Orleans one), Anya tags along with Fergus (or Wyatt) to help him. Now, what the actual f*ck. The U-boat is FULL OF REBELS, but instead they send Anya, who is pregnant WITH TWINS to fight the war! What about Bombate or many other "fighters"?

    Overall, the game is a flop. Storywise it's a huge flop, because it has many plotholes in it, gameplay wise it's a flop too, because the stealth is ruined, guns are weak, enemies are not threatening. MachineGames f*cked up for good, and this shows, that you shouldn't get hyped up for a game. I got stuck at levels, because I didn't know where to go, because there were no proper objective markers. And the most annoying were U-boat intersections, because U-boat is a labyrinth, and you have to navigate your way through it, doing side quests and whatnot.

Thousands of killed Poles, Hungarians, Russians, Americans and another nations who "weren't killed" by communists confirm it. Creators in MachineGames says to us "communists are good guys never mind".

    Gameplay in New Colossus, is more "Take Cover and fire back" than the old-school Run-and-Gun style especially at higher difficulties. The issue is that B.J's Health is limited to 50 for 2/3 part of the game. This makes combat less, "fluid", since you're forced take cover more often.
    Honestly, I just used 2 weapons at most, throughout the entire game: the default

    Honestly, I just used 2 weapons at most, throughout the entire game:
    the default Nazi submachinegun and the Assault rifle. Fully upgrade those two, and you can kill 90% of the enemies in the game.

    Story is overblown to becoming downright ridiculous and stupid. It's CRINGEY at most, and many of the characters are annoying, to be honest.
    In fact, there's more cutscenes than actual gameplay.
    I also have this weird feeling that, this game is CONSTANTLY trying to push its SJW agenda onto player's faces? Its kinda irritating.

    Since, I'm playing the PC(Steam) version, I suffered several crashes, which forced me to replay missions occasionally. My PC isn't the fastest, but I believe its more than enough to handle this game. (i5-4690K @ 3.5Ghz, RX 580 8GB)

    New Colossus is still a GOOD shooter, despite my issues with the game. But New Order, in my humble opinion, was still far, FAR superior than this sequel.

    Story & characters: 3/10
    Gameplay: 7/10

    Iterative, boring, and wholly unnecessary. This installment of the series is roughly as samey and plodding as the original was refreshing and innovative. I had come to enjoy the mini FPS renaissance we've been having in gaming over the last few years with Wolfenstein: The New Order and the revamped DOOM. This game, however, just isn't on par with those titles.

    Perhaps then, that's this

This game, however, just isn't on par with those titles.

    Perhaps then, that's this game's purpose. Where the first reboot was very much right place, right time to remind us what made story driven linear FPS's great and why they dominated the gaming scene for so long, then Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus exists to remind us why they fell out of favor so dramatically. Save your money, this one isn't worth the time.

    Note: I have no problems with the political controversy surrounding this game. Shooting Nazis is fun and if you find yourself upset with the idea of a brutal Fascist regime being taken apart brick by brick, it says more about you than the media. I will say, however, I believe the developer embraced the controversy as a way to hype a game they knew was deeply mediocre. This game earned it's rating on a wonky story, crummy gunplay, and it's penchant to spawn enemies behind you and in blind spots.

    Unfortunately the game feels unfinished and lacks the diversity of the New Orders level designs. A lot of the levels are very bland and you find yourself repeating some of these levels, it begins to feel like filler after a while. That's not to say there aren't some great levels here, but not as many as the original. Also the story as crazy as it has always been is absurd in places.

I enjoyed my time here but it could have been better. You should play this game but not at full price

    Overall Wolfenstein 2 is an oK game, but it falls short of the original greatness of the New Order. There are however some great moments of fun to be had.

    Personally I don't understand why at this game such high ratings and all so eulogize it. It is just ordinary linear shooter. Yes the shooter old school and to shoot in it it gives pleasure.

But all spoil typical stereotypes about people and the biggest that I hate - tolerance. If you white - you are a Nazi (Russians and Poles will precisely estimate) if black - you battle for independence of the USA. I also didn't hear bigger nonsense. And why the black aunt fills with everything? Who is she in general such? The ending in general crosses out everything as it is possible to make the plot culmination murder of some cranky Nazi, it is simpler only in games of the Assassin's Creed series.
    PS. To kick the lying Hitler it is invaluable.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Cutscenes. lots of Cutscenes. I was screaming at my monitor by the end of the game, how dare they put those moments in grainy, 30FPS, 720p cutscenes. even a quick time event would have been preferable.
    The gameplay is a little rough. They took TNO's gameplay, and applied sandpaper. Stealth is pointless now, you aren't going to be able to successfully stealth it, yet the game features so heavily on commanders and stealth kills.
    The story is OK. not quite as grasping as the previous games, and quite wishy washy and muddied.
    Back to cutscenes. so many cutscenes. anything important that happens is in a cutscene, and this is a shame. there are many beautiful interactive moments back at the home base, and it is a shame this wasn't expanded to the rest of the game. Of course certain scenes have to be cutscenes, but there were far to many.
    Lets also not forget the "it as only a dream" level. And how there are many obvious open ended plot points (and a few plotholes that only a second playhtouigh may clear up)
    As for the bugs, the game ran very smooth for me on a mid-high PC, but a few issues with mouse pointer popping up, broken level waypoints and the odd texture / mesh glitch. two hard crashes (during cutscenes, now you see why i'm not keen on them!)
    Either way, 15 hours of entertainment, may consider trying to 100% it, don't feel empty, but don't feel full (and i'm someone who very much focuses on 100% games)
    Its not the bombastic power fest that TNO was, but a steadier gentler trudge through the Wolfenstein world.

    This weekend just past I played 'Wolfenstein II The New Collossus' for more than 10 hours. I am far from finished but even at this stage I can say without doubt that for me personally this may be the best PC video game I have ever played, at least so far. This was unexpected.

I am far from finished but even at this stage I can say without doubt that for me personally this may be the best PC video game I have ever played, at least so far. This was unexpected. 'Wolfenstein' is an old franchise. One with a wonderful pedigree for sure but by now I thought that perhaps I had tired of shooting nazis and storming wildly imaginative military industrial complexes. I was wrong.

    The first thing that surprised me is both the depth of the story line and the emotional nuance of the characters. Our hero B.J. Blazkowicz is introduced us through a series of memories from a childhood that is unpleasant to put it mildly. I really like the back story and how we learn it as a frame to his current attitude. But the story line from there only gets deeper and more involved. I haven't cared this much about a character or story line since Vampire Masquerade all the way back in 2004.

    This serves to makes some of the plot changes and 'Game of Thrones' like deaths that much of a shock when they occur. For shocks there are. Be prepared for decapitations and violence on an epic scale. But these are built into the story and game play brilliantly. For this is a thoroughly enjoyable game to play as well as experience. The stealth/melee attacks as as good or better for example as those in 'Far Cry' whilst upgrade able weapons and ranged attacks offer variable options in how to progress levels.

    I also really like the way that sometimes when it seems impossible to make progress, for example after many failed attempts to jump to a rescue, I had to finally realize that I really wasn't meant to escape that way. Pausing, rethinking years of standard game play, I found alternatives ways to move forward. This is refreshing and Machine Games deserve kudos for taking a fresh approach.

    There is also much humour in the game. I laughed out loud to find one nazi officer in his room with a VR headset on oblivious to the carnage going on around him. Another time you get to over hear an enemy celebrate finding a working toilet. These lighter moments are terrific and add enormously to the games enjoyment. I would not describe the scene with Hitler the same way but it was still amazing. This was the first FPS game where I had to grab a pen and paper to write down and memorize an actors lines. That too made me smile.

    If I could ask for more it would have been for more outside, open levels. At one point we come across a parade of nazi soldiers. It would have been enormous fun to wreck havoc with that. All in all this is a wonderful game and for those like myself that may feel the best days of the FPS are over I am pleased to say that this is not so. This game is really terrific.

    Intresting story with equal parts action, story, humor and grittyness. Doesn't overbear with a ton of guns you don’t need. Straight and to the point the whole way through.

    Shooting is super tight and feels great, a little slow paced but very satisfying. Gorgeous, great story, lots of dead nazis and salty incels. If you liked Doom or the Wolfenstein reboot you'll like this

    Had no problems whatsoever playing this game. No technical issues as opposed to other reviewers.
    As for the game itself, well obviously everyone sees in it what they want. I really don't see any threat to white people, or the western civilization or negative/positive discrimination for that matter. There are 2 (two) main characters which are black and 7 (seven) or more main characters

There are 2 (two) main characters which are black and 7 (seven) or more main characters which are white. So like wtf people? It goes very well in the settings of occupied U.S. of A. as, surprise surprise, there were (and are) a lot of black people in the country. Deal with it you racist pricks.
    Story is not too complicated but well executed. The cruelty of Frau Engel and her band of morons gave me shiver up my spine. The readable documents nicely contributed to the complexity of the world and pictured the nazi hate to untermenschen and their total lack of care for the lives of non-nazis, which were treated as livestock.
    Gameplay is nicely fast paced and fluent as in the previous games.
    I would give it a 10, but it seems that they focused primarily on the story and forgot to implement boss battles or any remarkable enemies.
    All in all a very good game which could be better if there were bosses or any other notable (and killable) enemy characters other than Frau Engel which you also see like 3 times total.

    Also Hitler gave it a zero. That means it cannot be bad ;)

    Shooter of the year! It plays great, looks spectacular and sounds amazing. What’s more, despite an apparent lack of seriousness it’s not afraid to bring up difficult subjects, mixing comedy and tragedy in a stunning way. It’s a ridiculously good game. [13/2017, p.30]

    The re-ignited fight against the swastika is great action fun once again. It is a pity that a story is not intriguing enough, and it applies to it: what’s long, is stupid. [Issue#280]

    Hopefully, by the time Machine Games starts work on Wolfenstein 3, they will find a writer who understands that fast-paced action does not mix well with protagonist’s constant complaining. [Issue#225, p.52]
