Wolfenstein: Youngblood Gameplay Trailer | Bethesda Press Conference E3 2019
Positive: 19 out of 50
Mixed: 29 out of 50
Negative: 2 out of 50
Jul 25, 2019MachineGames 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.
Jul 25, 2019Wolfenstein 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.
Jul 25, 2019The 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.
Jul 26, 2019The 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.
Aug 12, 2019It 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.
Jul 31, 2019Wolfenstein: 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.
Aug 5, 2019If 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.

Jul 26, 2019greate game with coop, but got some problem... some enemy 1shoot us... its not game for #yolo playstyle

The gunplay mechanics are really good actually. You can peak around corners and over objects ehich is somewhat of a rarity in fps games. At first I was slightly annoyed at the main characters, but eventually they grew on me. The developers really dared to take a risk with female characters and should be commended for that. It's sad to see how much hate this game has received because of it.… Expand

Jul 27, 2019Again, Bethesda failed big time. As Wolfenstein game it is very weak, very poorly made. I was expecting pretty same experience as it was withAgain, Bethesda failed big time. As Wolfenstein game it is very weak, very poorly made. I was expecting pretty same experience as it was with previous games. But in the end I was very disappointed. I paid for a fast-paced shooter, instead I got looter-shooter.
Coop is fun
Very well optimized
Buddy pass (only one copy of the game required in order to play coop - deluxe edition)
- 40% gameplay, 60% looting. As for Wolfenstein game, of course you're expecting some fast-paced gameplay, just running and shooting nazis all around you, but that's not the case with Youngblood. And it is one of major problems with this game - you gonna spend more time looting than actually playing/shooting enemies. This game is more like a Borderlands than Wolfenstein. You have to loot silver coins for weapon upgrades, skins and special abilities.
- Bullet-spongy enemies. It seems adding RPG elements to new games has become new trend. It was the case with Far Cry New Dawn, AC: Origins, Odyssey (it looks like new Ghost Recon game also gonna be the same crappy way), Youngblood is no exception - we got some goddamn RPG elements - health bars, level and skill system. Which means if you wanna keep going with main story, you going have to farm side missions, in order to proceed, because with health bars now enemies got those little skull icons above their heads, indicating you are too weak to proceed here further.
- Player has to constantly keep changing weapons, because with health and armor bars now, you have to use proper weapons in order to penetrate enemy's armor and kill them. And constantly changing weapons just ruins immersion for me. I remember in Doom and Serious Sam games (very similar to Wolfenstein, comparing gunplay), all you had to do was to pick your favourite weapon, make sure you got enough ammo and then just blast everyone in your way. Well, congratulations Bethesda, it seems you've managed to f**k this up with Youngblood.
-Dumb and buggy AI. I came across some enemies that were glitched. I was shooting them and they just weren't responding to that, just walking as usual.
-Microtransactions. Oh, what a surprise....
Maybe you will have some fun with this game at start, particularly if you're playing coop, but honeslty this could've been so much better. Instead of maintaining the basics of Wolfenstein's gameplay, they're trying to make this into looter-shooter.
P.S. Let me just add this. I strongly believe that devs and publishers are doing this only so they could monetize new games later. It's because they want to implement loot-box system and microtransactions, they wanna force gamers to spend more and more money for some random, useless in-game loot (when new AAA games already cost 60-90-120 euros). That's why they're adding all these RPG features like in Far Cry, Assassin's Creed, Ghost Recon, Anthem, Division and other games. That way, they can justify all this loot-boxes nonsense.
Ubisoft be like: "oh look at AC: Odyssey, it's very grindy game, so we're just adding some "time savers" for a real money, just to make it a little bit easier for you." EA by like "it's not loot-boxes, it's "surprise mechanics", like kinder eggs, people love getting surprises."
Wolfenstein: Youngblood is perfect example of why gaming has been going downhill for several years now. No immersion, no interesting characters, no more great stories or fun gameplays. Only SJW bulls**t and political correctness, that's what we're getting in games now.
FU Ubi, FU EA, FU Activision and FU Bethesda, ♥♥♥♥ing up gaming industry right now, and it just works...… Expand
Mar 26, 2020What an awful, poorly optimised game. I'm glad I didn't pay to play this game or I would be even more disappointed. Bethesda, sort your **** out.

After RAGE 2 Bethesda drops yet another stinker.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood has so many problems I don't know where to begin.
The game takes place many years after New Colossus and BJ Blazkowicz's twin daughters have grown up to be annoying brats. It's almost like the developers played way too much Life is Strange and decided that they want to introduce a Chloé-esque character to the Wolfenstein universe, but not just one but two! "Awesome right, dude?" "F'yeah dude! Very awesome, dude"
Which brings me to the next issue: this is a coop game. A forced coop at that. Even if you want to play alone you will have an AI companion, who wouldn't shut up for 2 seconds. The main objectives require both you and your human/AI partner to be alive, so if your companion is stuck elsewhere, then it's tough luck.
The game doesn't use checkpoints, but instead only saves your EXP and item progression.
What does this mean? It means if you and your partner run out of lives (3) then you are sent back to the beginning of the mission.
This can happen very often as AI tends to wander off and then get downed. If you don't save her in time, then that's -1 life even if you don't die.
Sounds fun huh?
Oh wait, but there's more!
There's no pause option in singleplayer.
Let that just sink in: There. Is. NO. Pause.
Alright, but is the shooting fun? Yes, it is. Granted if you are on the same level as your enemies.
Levels? What Levels? Oh, didn't you know? Youngblood introduces a tedious leveling system. Most story related activites are locked behind a level requirement, meaning even if you are very good at FPS games higher level enemies have so much HP and dmg it's not even possible to succeed. So have fun grinding the first few hours.
And to top all that up the game has microtransactions/in-game store.
Not much needed to be said about this.
Overall thoughts? Game is crap, and after 2 crappy FPS games in a row from Bethesda, both containing microtransactions I'm seriously worried how DOOM: Eternal will turn out. But one thing is for sure: Bethesda ain't getting another first day buy from me.
- Graphics are great
- No performance issues
- Gunplay is fun as long as you are in the same level range as your enemies
- Enemy variety is decent, with some new addtions (EG:Laserhund, Bombenhund) and some returning ones such as the Elite Guards
- Level design is interesting at times, when you discover shortcuts and hidden areas. Compared to other Wolfenstein games, this one's level design is less linear and incorporates more verticality.
- Extremely annoying main characters, who act and talk like infantiles
- Poorly implemented leveling system, forcing you to grind to be able to tackle specific objectives
- Pointless collectibles, which require you to revisit older areas with no real pay-off
- Forced co-op with horrible AI companion
- No pause option
- Very limited content, even for a 30€ game.
- Microtransactions… Expand
