    For players more interested in narrative than challenge, look no further. With powerful storytelling, strong performances from the central cast and disturbingly relevant themes, The New Colossus is a high water mark for AAA stories. As it fires on all cylinders to deliver bombast and blood with its right hand, be warned — the most devastating hits come from its subtle left hook.

    This version of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus shows us that a Nintendo Switch can be powerful, adult and capable of anything possible.

    As it goes for a Switch game as a whole, this is certainly one of the better releases on the system from a third party company. While you get just the vanilla version of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, the fact that you get it on the Nintendo Switch in amazing form is something to behold. The game looks solid, the intensity of the original release is still intact, and the gameplay doesn’t drop off much when playing it portable. It’s a must-have for Nintendo Switch owners dying for a first-person shooter.

    Wolfenstein II is a deep and varied shooter. Its story, with few exceptions, is excellently written and performed. A reliance on long, pre-rendered cutscenes may bog down the pacing now and then, but even in those moments the story was compelling enough to keep me going.

    There are better-looking versions of this wonderful shooter, but Wolfenstein II on the Switch is a technical marvel in its own right.

    On the big N hybrid, the MachineGames shooter retains much of its disruptive play personality, keeping the rewarding properties of one of the best shooters of the past year substantially intact.

    Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus wants the Nazi-killing theme of the blood-obsessed Wolfenstein series to assert its modern-day relevance in a world where the word “resistance” has become a rallying cry.

It's an excellent port that keeps the experience intact. Panic Button did an amazing job as usual, maximizing the capacity of the Switch for a perfect handheld experience. If you want crisper graphics, play the other versions, but on the switch screen the game is just perfect! Expand

Keep exaggerating the resolution to justify your favorite platform not supporting mobile play. It always gives me a good moral boost. Expand

A narrativa é o forte desse jogo. Nota 8 pela boa jogabilidade e narrativa, mas também por falta de inovação pois muitas vezes vocês pensa "É um FPS comum". Se você gosta muito de jogos de tiro, jogue. Mas se não quer mais do mesmo, talvez fosse interessante considerar outro jogo. Mas não se engane: houveram "cutscenes" em que senti calafrios pois a narrativa é imprevisível. Expand

    Pros: This game is solid. I like Wolfenstein and DOOM titles, classical old-school FPS what a real man cannot ask for more. The storyline isPros: This game is solid. I like Wolfenstein and DOOM titles, classical old-school FPS what a real man cannot ask for more. The storyline is attractive. HD rumble of NS is good too.
    Cons: The font size of subtitle is too small, especially in hand-held mode. Maybe because of the hardware performance, the resolution ratio is a little bit low, making it vague when playing.
    In all, 8/10, recommended.

    Basura subversiva e ideología del NOM, la típica mierda hollywodiense para adoctrinar a las masas . Muy inferior a RTC Wolfenstein.

    While I'm impressed by the port from the technological point of view, I have to say: THIS GAME IS S**T.

    While I'm impressed by the port from the technological point of view, I have to say: THIS GAME IS S**T.

    This is a game for adult people, do you really believe that you need to tell adult people that Nazis are bad in the way you would explain it to a 4 years old? "NATSI BAAAAAAD. BOO BOO NATSI. NO NATSI".
    The storytelling of that game is an insult to my intelligence. In the beginning I thought this is a joke, but no, the really believe that their audience are a bunch of mentally disabled chaps that won't be able to process some serious storytelling. How could they **** this game up that baldy, after the first one was a true gem?
