    Thanks to the quality in both concept and function, this is one of the finest first-person-shooters I've ever played, and the best iteration of one of gaming's most storied franchises.

    The New Order’s got all the workings of a classic shooter. But in their trip back to the well, Machine Games has brought all of its talents to bear. The New Order is held together, even rocketed beyond the basic sum of its smart levels and effective mechanics by its characters. That humanity takes what would be a good shooter and makes it something truly memorable.

    Wolfenstein: The New Order is a successful comeback for Bethesda's IP. With an interesting plot, a caricature side and very old-school gameplay which brings back memories of id Software's hours of fame with the like of Doom and Quake, a masterpiece of a casting, MachineGames's new FPS has it all, or almost. We regret a story that's a bit short. Overall Wolfenstein: The New Order is a very good game, that fits well in it's family tree, and it's great fun to play.

    It’s a joyous, preposterous romp which sucks you in and takes you on a thoroughly enjoyable, surprisingly well-paced journey. Along the way, it even manages to hammer home the big advantage games have over films: that they can take “What if?” scenarios and explore them over a considerably longer period of time than two piffling hours.

    MachineGames have done a wonderful job capturing the essence of the old-school shooter while avoiding its pitfalls, and presenting it in a way that will attract new audiences. The result is a game that’s as good as you remember its forebears being, even though it facilitates the player in ways that games from a decade ago didn’t. This is Wolfenstein for the new generation, and it’s worthy of the legacy.
  6. The legend finally comes back. But, the idTech 5 is not enough for nex-gen consoles. The New Order has many graphical, texture and antialiasing problems. Still, MachineGames tells us the best Wolfenstein story in the entire history of Wolfenstein.

    The greatest problem in Wolfenstein: The New Order, then, is a jarring inconsistency of tone and cohesion... It's almost as if there's a tug of war going between the big dumb shooter and the attempt to be subversive, with the result being a game that's not really slick enough to be an action classic, and not dramatic enough to draw you in.

    Oldschool gaming is creeping it's way back, and I couldn't be happier!

    Amazing game, that's it, I don't have much more to say other than this game is blowing me away in almost every aspect. You own it to yourself to pick this up if you like FPS's and are fed up with those yearly releases that don't inovate in any aspect at all.

I traded in an over hyped new release for this and I have no regrets. The story line was the main reason for me. But then all the action and fighting really kept me playing. All the bad ass knife kills. I mean who doesn't want to kill a bunch of nazi's. Some scenes were quite confronting but it all went with the story line. Nothing felt like it was put in for shock value. The visuals were gorgeous. Each level was different and unique and it never felt repititive. Will get a few plays out of this for sure even just to get all those beautiful collectables! I missed out on so many was too busy killing nazi's! If you are in doubt. Wait for a sale! I paid nearly full price for this (au priced games are expensive ) but it was worth it! Loved the game. Can't wait to play again. Expand

Weaponry is incredible and you can dual wield practically anything, a solid FPS and a good storyline. I recommend playing the game on über difficulty and looking to unlock the perks throughout the game to mix stealth with run and gun for a full experience. Glad I bought this game but I do wish it had multi-player. Expand

    La simplicidad del control. Un shooter con los valores de antes.

    Contras: La simplicidad del control también puede ser algo malo si buscas un poco más de profundidad.

    i liked it. CoD and BF need to take a look at this and see how to actually make a campaign. the story was okay not the greatest but it wasn'ti liked it. CoD and BF need to take a look at this and see how to actually make a campaign. the story was okay not the greatest but it wasn't bad and it had it's moments.The gameplay was great, every gun felt different and each had it's use there wasn't a single gun i didn't think was useless. I've never played the older ones so i'm not sure how true it stays to the franchise. i felt like it took itself a little too seriously at points though like it forgot it was a game with space nazi's. i did notice a few bugs but nothing too bad or game breaking. Textures sometimes took a little bit to load in as well. Expand
