    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 game sets an incredibly dark tone in the beginning and never really lets up. Easily worth the money. Also it's worth mentioning just how beautiful this game it. They start the game showing a recap from the first one, and just looking at the graphics quality from then -- it's amazing to see how far the tech has come

    With all of that out of the way, it is disturbing to see how many nazi sympathizers there are purposely trying to down rate this game, obviously still butt-hurt about surrendering in 1945. Utterly pathetic and childish. Wolfenstein started in 1981 with virtually zero friction... but for some reason in 2017 this is offensive? We know you can't offer anything constructive to the conversation so you downrate a game to feel better about yourselves.

    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.

    Wolfenstein is back with another fast paced old school shooter that doesn't have time for you to hide behind cover while your healthWolfenstein is back with another fast paced old school shooter that doesn't have time for you to hide behind cover while your health regenerates. Unfortunately it's the kind of game that is way more difficult with a controller than a keyboard and that holds it back slightly on PS4.

    + it triggers the every living f**k out of right wingers who supposedly aren't 'nazis' but somehow manage to get offended anyway when you shoot FAKE ROBOT NAZIS in this game. The only reason this game doesn't have roughtly 8 or 9/10 in the user reviews is because it's being review bombed with 0 score reviews by right wing snowflakes who think shooting enemy nazis in this game is a form of oppression or some kind of agenda. Remember when it wasn't 'political' to fight nazis? I member.

New colossus is very buggy, it freezes, before cgi sequences start, has long loadingtimes and the difficulty is not balanced at all. The saddest thing: they messed up the stealth system. You can'take really kill someone silently, because there is always someone else, who is seeing you and rings the alert. This is annoying. I don't want to run in every situation and just kill everyone quickly. But thus game makes me do so. I am still missing a boss fight and some nps looks very crappy. And there is no excuse for playstation 2 like surfaces.
    I wanted more for the story of bj. Disappointing, machinegames.

    Decepcionante gunplay. Un gran paso atrás en la franquicia. No tiene nada que hacer ante el gran shooter que es The New Order
