Wolfenstein: Youngblood - Official Story Trailer
Jul 30, 2019Youngblood suffers as a result of the Switch's relatively underpowered hardware, but for all its technical shortcomings, the game still delivers intense, momentous, and challenging combat. Everything features-wise remains intact, and you'll get to enjoy taking a shotgun (or fully charged laser beam) to the heads of Nazi scum. The Blazkowicz sisters, Jess and Soph, bring their own unique swagger to the Wolfenstein franchise, too. So if the Switch version is your only way of playing Youngblood, you can be confident it's still one hell of a ride.
Jul 28, 2019Wolfenstein: Youngblood is an odd little thing that evokes the smaller scale approach given to Far Cry: New Dawn earlier this year. Like New Dawn, Youngblood is a spin-off that focuses more on gameplay freedom while losing the focus on story. In some ways, it takes the series forward in the way it tries new ideas and mechanics - such as co-op and more open-ended level designs - and we hope a number of these features return for the next full sequel, but without the mind-bending twists and turns of its narrative, Youngblood pales in comparison to The New Order and The New Colossus. A fun and enjoyable co-op shooter (and another porting masterclass), but one that both improves and diminishes its own winning formula.
Jul 31, 2019Wolfenstein: Youngblood offers exceptional gunplay the series is known for and brings a lot of interesting elements to the franchise for the first time. While the character-upgrades, sound design, and world are fantastic, the mission structure, lack of story, and awful checkpoint system bog down the experience.
Aug 19, 2019Overall, Youngblood is a welcome reinvention of the series, but lacks the personality of what makes a Wolfenstein game. Microtransactions aren’t as bad they’re made out, but it is still understandably going to impact each person differently. The extensive replay incentive and a charming, albeit short, story are appreciated. If you are a Wolfenstein enthusiast, this game definitely deserves at least one playthrough— just make sure you won’t have any interruptions during your sessions.
Nintendo Force MagazineApr 28, 2020A really confusing game, in that it takes some of what made the modern era of Wolfenstein so great, then copies and pastes modern looter-shooter tropes on top. [Issue #41 – September 2019, p. 76]
Aug 9, 2019All told, Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a rather baffling experience that doesn’t quite seem to fully understand what it’s trying to be. Many of the factors that made previous games enjoyable are still here: the core gameplay mechanics are solid and the presentation is legitimately impressive considering Switch’s hardware limitations. However, the changes they made both in terms of structure and the addition of RPG mechanics simply don’t work together in a cohesive way.

Nothing innovative about it and at the same time a great way for Bethesda to test the waters with the series by adding online co-op, light RPG elements, a fun buddy pass (allows a friend to play online with you for free without purchasing the game) and some challenging bosses (which the series has been known for). It's not the the first time a great series has had a good spinoff: Megan Man had Mega Man X and Resident Evil has had Resident Evil: Revelations.… Expand

The plot of the game is much weaker than the previous two tiles.
In fact, we have 4 missions and a couple of side tasks.
Weak graphics on the console.
The game seems to be designed for multiplayer, but when I spend 10-15 hours developing a hero, having difficulty killing opponents who are even 3-4 levels stronger than me, and then a level 1 player connects to me and easily beats the fascists who are stronger it at 40 levels - the question arises of balance, and when after an hour and a half it has already reached level 20 - I want to ask a question about the speed of accrual of experience.… Expand

They tried to make a hybrid fps/rpg game and failed really badly. It doesn't matter what you do, the enemies will feel the same. Guys with just a white vest on taking 5 shotgun shells to the chest and robots taking your ENTIRE stock of ammo to kill.
I played with my friend online and we were constantly asking "Did the devs even play their own game??"
The online multi worked well at first until their was a patch and from that moment on, one of us had lag so bad, that the game was unplayable.
The slow down is very bad in places and on the last boss fight? I was getting about 3-5 fps.… Expand

The mostAt first I want to say that Panic Button did. an Amazing job with the port. But, this is the worst Wolfenstein game in the Series. The most Enemy’s are bulletsponges and it make me absolutely no fun to play it, even with friends.
The Story is told in 5 Minutes and boring. The problem with the Level system is, that all the enemies increase their LV with yours. So if you’re LV 20, the Enemy is LV 20-25 too, so you feel never OP and sometime like with a airsoft gun. Pros:
- nice graphic for the switch
- good Leveldesign (thx Machiengames)
- no real Story
- lame Charakters - boring Gameplay - too many bullet sponges
- boss fight are repetitive… Expand
