    Wolfenstein 3D changed how we looked at first person games in 1992 and The New Order, while not as big of a step, may be just as important of one for the future of the genre.

    To put it briefly: The New Order deserves a sequel. And to make sure this dream comes true, I can do only one thing: convince you to buy the new Wolfensten game. Perhaps great trailers boosted expectations too high, perhaps fanatical Return to Castle Wolfenstein players won't be as amazed, as I am, but I'm sure of this: all FPS fans will have a great time and after finishing the game they'll want more.

    While the story never reaches the level of Bioshock or Portal 2, Wolfenstein: The New Order is a great experience both narratively and gameplay-wise, and has way more heart than it has any right to.

    Who was expecting such a big Wolfenstein return four years after the previous title? Not many, but MachineGames has developed a very good shooter with mixed gameplay (shoot&stealth), an interesting plot and great characters.

    If you've enjoyed shooters of old, you'll love how freshly packaged this one is.

    Wolfenstein: The New Order is an electric veg-o-matic of FPS gaming bits and pieces set thrown into the hopper and set for puree. It lacks some stuff that we’re sort of gotten used to seeing in our FPS games these days and adds, a thousand collectable widgets aside, not much that we haven’t seen elsewhere before.

    The only thing in the new Wolfenstein that turned out really well is music. Shooting is decent and some weapons give proper sense of power, but developers failed to build an interesting game on these foundations. It has some good moments but none of them lasts long enough to be satisfying. Plus the writing is terrible and the way the game constantly forces all that ‘war is evil!’ preaching and Blazkowicz’s moral dilemmas down your throat is ridiculous. I actually couldn’t decide whether the game is being serious or not. [07/2014, p.56]

Unashamedly old-school and at times very silly, Wolfenstein is the game that Duke Nukem should have been. In a market where over-hyped tedium like Watchdogs gets the sales it is worth remembering that games are supposed to be fun. Buy. Expand

The console influence, sadly, is rather evident the more you get into the game, with texture quality not being as good as it could have been, along with other niggles like radial menus. Personally i didn't find this too much of a problem, and is by no means intrusive, but for those who like to squeeze the utmost out of every game you might be a tad frustrated graphics-wise. Otherwise th story and the shooting are both excellent, in its own ridiculous, over the top way. The game doesn't try to be serious about dual-wielding sniper rifles, and neither should you going into the game. Fantastic for a good length old school shoot-em up, but don't expect it to win any oscars. Expand
