    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.

    The first reboot was probably my favourite FPS game of the generation. The visceral gunplay was unmatched and the story was awesome. BetterThe first reboot was probably my favourite FPS game of the generation. The visceral gunplay was unmatched and the story was awesome. Better than the majority of game stories. 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.

    Split right in the middle between a crappy first half and an awesome second, Wolfenstein 2 could have been a true legend and a round 10. ItSplit right in the middle between a crappy first half and an awesome second, Wolfenstein 2 could have been a true legend and a round 10. It will have to settle for an 8, because its first half does everything wrong - it turns your character frail, breaking the flow of action the series is renowned for. The plot plods along, fixating on the end of its predecessor instead of looking forward. Levels are boring - chrome and pipe mazes with no end in sight. As soon as it lets that go however - it shines. The action picks up, the plot picks up, the levels become varied and incredible.

    Overall - I loved it. I love the new Wolfenstein series. But if you don't like them, or aren't willing to push through and annoying first few hours... avoid it. And for the love of god, consider playing it on an easier difficulty than you're used to, it is DAMN hard.

    And remember - killing Nazis, even fictional ones, is always, ALWAYS good.

    Yeah wolfenstein 2 didn't even make sense in the slightest honestly they could've ended the series off with wolfenstein 1 but no they had toYeah wolfenstein 2 didn't even make sense in the slightest honestly they could've ended the series off with wolfenstein 1 but no they had to make a filler game and now their making a game about BJ's daughters which i can predict will be even more nonsensical you know wolfenstein the new order was and still is my favorite game right now it's just that it's one of those games that didn't really need a second game.

    The Level design in this game was frustrating, the story felt too focused on social issues rather than
    the actual story needed for this type of game, the characters we're ok, most of the dialogue was just "we hate the facists" "we hate white america" "we hate something else".

    The Gameplay was pretty fun i generally had a good time stabbing,mowing down, destroying nazis and robots, same as the first game just with **** level design.

    This game couldv'e been good without the social agenda this game seems to push on players.

    Gameplay was good, Level design was godawful and confusing, story was trying to hard to be something it wasn't, The characters were good with a few notable exceptions, The weapons
    were satifying to use. Overall this game was meh and it could've been more than meh if it only tried to be a game rather than a political argument.
