    MachineGames continues to raise the overall level of the Wolfenstein franchise, although it could have taken more advantage of the cooperative and there is excessive grinding.

    Wolfenstein Youngblood takes a different approach than previous Wolfenstein installments. Co-op instead of solo-adventuring and a bigger emphasis on exploring. Aside from some small hickups with stealth and enemies, it's a blast from beginning to end.

    The Blazkowicz sisters steal the show in a bite-sized co-op FPS spin-off that packs a hell of a punch, further invigorating the Wolfenstein franchise.

    The debut of the Blazkowicz sisters does not provide the fully-fledged Wolfenstein experience. Nonetheless it is an action packed, entertaining coop shooter which is definitely worth its 30 Dollar price tag.

    It breaks my heart a little to slap a relatively low score on this. Both The New Order and The New Colossus were fantastic reinventions of a venerated gaming franchise, delivering satisfying gunplay with surprisingly touching narrative hooks. Youngblood still has that great feel, it’s just wrapped up in a co-op focused bubble which detracts from the traditional flow of the game.

    Wolfenstein: Youngblood disappoints because Wolfenstein 2 was much more than a good shooting game. Youngblood is not. Though there are enough moments where the fast gameplay impresses and the co-op entertains, the game disappoints in almost everything else.

    If you're looking for combat, which I imagine most fans of a dystopian Nazi-killing game would be, look the other way. Likewise, if you're looking for a great co-op experience to try out with a friend, prepare yourself for disappointment. And if you do end up buying this game, for the love of all that is holy, please turn on your own music.

People didn't like that it isn't a linear shooter and that it is kind of feminist in its presentation but overall I thought the game was pretty good.
    Pros:
    Great Graphics
    Lots of content to explore
    Loved the skill tree options
    I actually liked the different armor types, kinda like Borderlands so why are people complaining?
    I loved the sounds of the weapons
    I loved the combat, the best of any Wolfenstein game IMO and I have them all

    Cons:
    The story and characters aren't nearly as good
    The levels were not big enough for an open world game
    The lifting doors and elevator loading screens were a bit monotonous
    The NPC sis was a huge liability in the major boss fights

    Overall the game was very fun IMO though. I REALLY don't get the hate. If you look at the reviews, I think it was review bombed. That many zeroes? Come on, that is absurd.

    First of all. You can't change the games language, meaning I was stuck listening to German fighting Americans talk German to one another.First of all. You can't change the games language, meaning I was stuck listening to German fighting Americans talk German to one another. Cool.

    Apart from that the game doesn't allow fullscreen, meaning I was stuck at 60hz, which let me tell you (because the developers have probably never player a shooter in their lifes) feels like **** in a run & gun shooter. I was surpised to find that there is a FOV slider, which I had honestly not expected in such a terrible game.

    The mouse sensitivity slider barely affects the actual sensitivity; I had to lower my DPI from 800 to 200 to achieve anything even close to what I usually play.

    To the gameplay: The movement is good. It's not DOOM but its fun. On the other hand, the gunplay feels very unsatisfying. There is zero feedback on whether I've actually hit an enemy or not and the terrible "recoil" thats literally the gun just jumping around obstructing my vision doesn't help with seeing what I'm aiming at.

    The NPC spawns are horrible. I kept dying to random NPCs spawning 2m behind me after I had already cleared an area so there was no way of properly finding cover I one is to rush straight into the action instead of having to deal with the garbage feeling of a long range gunfight in this game.

    There's a lot more that annoyed me about Wolfenstein: Youngblood, for example the fact that the menus are the most counter-intuitive I've used in ages but I think you get the point.

    This "game" is nothing but a waste of storage and I highly discourage anyone from buying it.

The series has died already and it will never be good again because Bethesda will not ever learn and care about gamers. In conclusion this game is as garbage as Bethesda itself. DO NOT BUY IT! Expand
