    BJ’s latest adventure is a wondrous exercise in how to tell a story, how to write a script, and how to shape characters that feel both human and superhuman simultaneously. It really is amazing that a big budget game like this got made at all. Thank goodness MachineGames got the chance – it’s one of this decade’s best.

    MachineGames does it again - The New Order was terrific, and The New Colossus is pretty much the same level. The new Wolfenstein appeared in 2014 out of nowhere and became one of the best shooters ever. The sequel is very similar even though the "wow factor" isn't as evident. It is a joy to play such a big and well-made game that focuses only on single player. Bravo!

    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]
  4. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is one of the best first person shooter games so far and living proof that single player games are still alive and well.

    Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a very good solo FPS (which is already a rarity in the current game market) with a good story and a great sense of humor peppered by intense gunfights.

    I’m torn between calling Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus brave or merely unexpected. The core of The New Colossus remains as good as, and largely unchanged from, the earlier game. It’s great, explosive, and violent. The other half, so to speak, the heavy emphasis on story doesn’t drive the FPS experience so much as shift your focus into directions that FPS games don’t normally go. That’s not to say that FPS games don’t tell a story or even a complex story (Bioshock told an incredibly involved story and even explored the extrapolation of a Randian economics as a political movement), but they rarely (AFAIK never) attempt to tell a story so full of sadness and self-examination. The two parts sometimes fit well, sometimes less than well, and I think individual gamers will react very differently to the result.

    Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus takes The New Order and multiplies everything tenfold (especially the silliness and the amount of cut-scenes) when it should just take the original and carefully build upon its foundation, smoothing its rough edges and offering the very best Wolfenstein game ever. The result is a FPS that's fun, but also one that doesn't really know what it wants to be.

A wild ride from the begining till the end. The focus on the single player campaign paid off and delivered an experience as intense on action as doom, and as intricate on the storyline as bioshock.

    Highly recommended.

    Everyone should learn how to correctly install a videocard driver before downvoting this game.
    I must have a magic PC, because running the latest nvidia drivers, the game runs silky smooth without bugs and glitches 150+ fps on max settings everywhere.
    The game itself is fun, definitely better for me than new order. I recommend it. Edit: the endig was a little bit meh

    Es war ein gutes Spiel der " alten Schule " ... Leute wie ich die über 30 sind und noch viel die alten Shooter kennen wo man HitpointsEs war ein gutes Spiel der " alten Schule " ... Leute wie ich die über 30 sind und noch viel die alten Shooter kennen wo man Hitpoints aufsammeln musste und sie sich nicht automatisch regeniert hat werden ne Freude daran haben. Auch passiert coole Dinge in der Story die ich so noch nie " erlebt " habe wo man sich denkt .. What the **** ..

    Was mir nicht so gut gefallen hat ist das der Höhepunkt eigentlich nicht das Ende des Spiels sondern sich in der Mitte befunden hat. *spoilerwarnung* Man besucht Area 52 ... jagt dort ne Atombombe hoch .. und unterhalb der Höhle soll Alien Technologie sein.. warum darf ich da nicht hin ... dann fliegt man zur Venus !!!!!!!!!!! und trifft sich mit Adolf Hilter ... den hätte ich verflucht gerne getötet ... das Ende dagegen wo man General Engel den Schädel spaltet ist zwar okay aber eben nicht dieses MEGA Highlight. *spoilerende* Auch Story mässig hätten sie mehr machen können wo man merkt ok wir starten eine Revolution. Man wird nicht belohnt dafür das man ein 100 % Ende versucht... die Enigma Maschine die paar Zusatzmissionen freischaltet hätte mehr Teil der Hauptstory sein sollen die die Story vorantreibt ... so ist es nur ein optionales unwichtiges nice to have ...

    Hoffe auf einen Teil 3 .. die Teile sind als Trilogie angelegt .. *spoiler* Seine Mutter ist noch immer verschollen und Adolf lebt auch noch ... *spoilerende* .. da lässt sich sicher noch ein guter dritter Teil zusammenbauen.
