    Running at about six hours, this game is a lot of fun with a decent story and some great action packed fights. If you haven't played either, I would recommend playing this first, then picking up last years release.

    A wonderful prequel to the New Order. Did you like the original game? Then you'll definitely want... nay, NEED this. What are you waiting for?

    Doesn't reinvent the wheel or go above last year's offering. Just a solid fan-service that delights much more that it 'infuhreriates'. [July 2015, p80]

    The Old Blood is a solid, fun and challenging shooter, with its distinctive mix between old and new school. Unfortunately, the original The New Order set the bar very high, and this expansion clearly can't keep up.

    Had The Old Blood been injected with more new blood, maybe it would have matched or surpassed the quality of The New Order. But by over-relying on nostalgia to drive the experience, it's well-crafted fan service rather than an attempt to push the series in new directions.

    The Old Blood is just OK. It’s a great deal for the price – as a $25 digital download via the PlayStation Store, the Xbox Games Store and Steam, it’s a rarity in an era when 25 bucks might get you a couple map packs’ worth of downloadable content – but I’ve discovered there’s such a thing as too old-school.

    Probably the best FPS in terms of value for money.
    You'll get the same gameplay that The New Order, which was very fun, great story and new characters, zombies, slightly better graphics, some nostalgia, a challenge mode and 7 hours campaign which is more than some games with a 70€ price-tag.
    The IA is still pretty dumb (even in Uber mode) but for 20€ I can easily look over that and say : The Old Blood is a perfect expansion and a more than fair offer and could also be a great entry before playing The New Order.

Its amazing, so fun and playing on Uber difficulty it's so rewarding, nice challenge, I ended the 3 Chapter now, always playing the nightmares. So fun! Old school! To everyone who is playing and like this type of game I suggest a try on Shadow Warrior, it's on the same boat =)

    I haven't played many FPS the last few months as Hardline disappointed me greatly but this has been fun. I've also never played anyI haven't played many FPS the last few months as Hardline disappointed me greatly but this has been fun. I've also never played any Wolfenstein games but found this up my alley. I wouldn't say it's hard but the difficulty whether you have played many FPS is on par no matter where you put the level at. Easy enough to get through and hard enough of a challenge. Lots of health, armor, bullets to get you through the tougher parts. I always review games from all levels before I blow my money on them....this one I didn't because of the lack of games I like on PS4. I'm happy my gut was right. You can't beat the gameplay for $20.

    Good fun, though doesn't last all that long. People talking about having to lower the difficulty level (Compudoc this means you) really needGood fun, though doesn't last all that long. People talking about having to lower the difficulty level (Compudoc this means you) really need to consider playing another type of game. Nothing too difficult in this one, but just hard enough (in places) to make it interesting. Good gameplay controls/mechanics and graphics make this a bit of a bargain game. Expand

    Lo mejor:
    No pierde nada de la esencia del original New Order
    Por el PVP es una duración mas que digna y tiene momentos para todos los gustos.
    Un final bastante interesante
    Variedad de escenarios, se agradece en como pasas de unos a otros a buen ritmo.

    Lo Peor:
    No hay variedad de enemigos
    No hay variedad de armas, ( solo un par nuevas )
    Mi sensación es que la ultima parte te la puedes pasar simplemente corriendo...

    Just like the last game, totally p**sed me off as got to the last level and couldn't finish it! Will never buy another in the WolfensteinJust like the last game, totally p**sed me off as got to the last level and couldn't finish it! Will never buy another in the Wolfenstein series again. Why does there have to be a ridiculous ending that I ended up getting totally stressed out over so deleted the disc and sold it for the 2nd time in a row!! Get real Bethesda, there is no fun in this type of game! Expand
