    It’s a game about killing Nazis, and reveling in that violence. It’s part righteous fury, part joy in the face of madness, and part dope-ass first-person shooter. To put it simply, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a lot.

    Even and without the absence of a multiplayer mode, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a great FPS that offers a fantastic, deep and really well told story. If you love the genre you should not miss it.

    Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus repeats the formula of delirious shooter, excessive and entertaining, and able to put any player in trouble. But this time it has a better story, one with deeper and loaded with critical, uncomfortable and even politically incorrect messages. Secondary missions and hundreds of collectibles bring many hours of game to their fans and the technical and artistic work is great.

    “Inglourious Basterds meets Fast and Furious” – a multicultural group of irreverent, colorful characters on a globetrotting quest to ruin Hitler’s day, week and life in a fantastic revenge fantasy setting. Brutal, absurd, clever, insightful and touching, The New Colossus is a rollicking adventure that has reset the bar for what first person shooters can, and should, be.

    One of the most charismatic shooters of 2017, attending to screenplay. Other features aren't as surprising, but overall we have a remarkable action experience.

    Wolfestein 2: The New Colossus is a gorgeous, fluid shooter with an delightful story and characters filled with good ‘ol Nazi killing satisfaction.

    Wolfenstein II The New Colossus is a good FPS game and a good followup that will make you laugh and kill a lot of nazis... exactly what we expected, but it still has some flaws, like its mediocre level-design and maps.

This game is even better in every way. Absolutely love this game. Buy it, you won't regret it if you like great gunplay, characters and story. It's like playing a game produced by Quentin Tarantino.

    Shooting is still pretty good.

    Difficulty is a step above the previous game so if you dont like a steep challenge you will be playing on the easiest setting.

    The main problem--

    The story is lazy and no fun. I was excited to see what they would do with America as the setting. They wrote exactly what you would write in your 8th grade fan fiction. Some seriously weird moments used as "shock value" but they miss the whole point of Wolfenstein as a series.
    Its full of typical mindless portrayals of people. This ones a redneck, that ones a communist....just disappointingly simplistic.

    Serious topics are handled like 19 year old rich suburban spoiled brats wrote about them after deciding they wanted to be a protester their freshmen year of college.

    Graphics are fine.

    A few satisfying moments.....but nothing worth buying the game for....

    Honestly, if you are a game journalist, you loved this game because its what you want from every game.....phony politics--- im not even sure they are in there, but im sure they enjoyed shooting Nazis ...you know...b/c we are all Nazis if we dont live in San Fran.

    Pick it up down the road on sale, or rent it, if you still think youre interested.......very few will enjoy it enough to warrant a full price purchase.

    I predict this game will kill the current series...but dont worry they will reboot it and 5 - 7 years.

    I would have given this a 9, but now the latest PS4 patch has hosed all my save games with a dozen hours lost. The previous patch only hosedI would have given this a 9, but now the latest PS4 patch has hosed all my save games with a dozen hours lost. The previous patch only hosed my in-mission progress, now every save game refuses to load (str_online_connection_error_03 followed by frozen game) - same as a large number of others. Such shoddy updates completely ruin an otherwise great game. Expand
