    The game exults in tomato-can headshots and arms blasted into gristle. Bits pop off bodies with enthusiasm, like giant fingers had flicked them at a wall. And as foes turn to wet paper, Blazkowicz remains a rock.

    Wolfenstein: The New Order feels like a game which really shouldn’t work. It transplants the feeling of a ’90s first person shooter into 2014; yet also has enough sense to mix in elements of modern game design to ensure it doesn’t feel antiquated. It is an action game which is fully functional as a stealth game. Its narrative is equal measures serious and ludicrous. Its lead character is a superman who feels vulnerable.

    Its mechanics are shallow, its gunplay is simple, and its story is something out of World War II obsessive’s wet dream. However, the things it gets right it does really well. The stealth is handled perfectly, the inventory and character progression are really well done, and the combination of regenerating health and pickups is actually something I wouldn’t mind seeing in future shooters.

There can be some muddy textures and some pop-in, but it's nothing that drags the overall experience down. The framerate remained buttery smooth throughout and overall everything looks incredibly pretty. I've noticed some people complaining about glitches, but I've played through the game twice and I haven't run into a single one (but maybe I just got lucky).
    I've always been a huge Wolfenstein fan, but the series has never been known for its narrative. Going in, I expected a fun, competent shooter - but I got so much more. While the premise of giant Nazi robots makes the entire setup sound ridiculous, the game gets so many things right on a narrative level - the heroes are complex and relatable and the setting is dripping with atmosphere.
    The gameplay is excellent, allowing for a lot of exploration, experimentation, and player freedom. There's plenty here for both stealthy gamers or those who like to go in guns-blazing (and even that has some added depth, allowing for either crazy duel-wielding or a cover system that allows for a more tactical approach).

Downloaded it from the marketplace, as i wanted a good single player game. Thats exactly what i got, but not good- extreamly good! What a truly fantastic story, with great voice acting. Not only that, but coupled with lots of collectibles, secret rooms, crazy weapons, and a crazy but effective twist on the ww2 setting- makes for an excellent game everybody should play. This game is one of the best story games iv'e ever played infact. Also, you can go guns blazing or stealthy on most levels! Highly reccomend this game for anyone who wants a truly thrilling experience Expand

Yes, if you're one that only likesWolfenstein: The New Order is horribly bugged and full of graphical glitches. Is this an overall issue...? Yes, if you're one that only likes to buy or play video games in general that are of quality control. It's a very simple game, though a "perks" system completely allows one to play as they wish, which is something the majority of first person shooters of the seventh gaming generation have been missing. The game is extremely fun and contains a great story and voice acting, though the graphics believe it or not are worse than the Play-Station 3 launch title Resistance: Fall of Man. Expand

    Graphics are absolute rubbish. Gameplay is both old and frustrating (run, shoot, stop to pick up ammo, run, stop to pick up ammo, shoot, stopGraphics are absolute rubbish. Gameplay is both old and frustrating (run, shoot, stop to pick up ammo, run, stop to pick up ammo, shoot, stop to pick up armour *yawn*) the cut-scenes are intrusive or overly long (get up make coffee wait for action to start again) and the AI is both dumb and glitchy.

    Worst of all it's just boring. I gave up half way through to watch a Tom Cruise movie - that's how boring this game is. Avoid.

    you will be so disappointed in this game if you get it. you'll want to buy it, because it's wolfenstein, and bethesda had a hand in its making...but i assure you, you will regret your decision if you purchase this. you will feel ripped off.

    don't look at the writer reviews on IGN or Gamespot, etc., or look at the nice screen shots they show....they're only for the PS4/PC version. The PS3 version is garbage. It's almost like they want you to buy a PS4 to get a PS3 experience, by making the PS3 version look like PS2 or PS1.

    If you read my review, and still purchase this game, I promise you...these words will haunt you.
