    Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a terrific shooter with nice characters, an online co-op mode and a brand new level design, but the graphics on Nintendo Switch are heavily downgraded.

    Wolfenstein: 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.

    Youngblood 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.

    Might not please established Wolfenstein fans, but Youngblood is still a great shooter on Switch.

    Overall, 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.

    A co-operative, almost looter shooter with RPG elements sounds good in theory, but it's not Wolfenstein. Then again this isn't meant to be just another game in the series. So the developers should be applauded for trying it, even if it's not perfect and perhaps it's just not my cup of tea.

    All 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.

The cutscenes lag in handheld, that is the main complaint. Docked they run fine and look good enough.

    Gameplay is fun with a friend and ok alone. Mostly been playing with a friend and in handheld. A major bonus is that the in-game voice chat works straight out of the box, no need for Nintendos own, just plug your headset into the audio jack and your done.

    Yeah sure. Well done trolls. Since you expected this game to be Wolfenstein 3 and it never meant to be that, you rate it 1. Very mature...Yeah sure. Well done trolls. Since you expected this game to be Wolfenstein 3 and it never meant to be that, you rate it 1. Very mature...
    This game is good. It plays just fine, the hub-like, non-linear missions structure is interesting. The characters may not be as deep as in mainline games, but the gunplay is fun and the co-op works well, even when playing solo. I’ll never understand why some people like to be complete idiots and ruin ratings for reasons outside the game itself. If you thought this game was a mainline one just because you can’t read and get informed, *you* should be rated 1, not the game!

    I was originally quite positive on this but the more I play the more the cracks start to show. The idea of using different ammo on differentI was originally quite positive on this but the more I play the more the cracks start to show. The idea of using different ammo on different enemies is illogical in this type of game and works poorly. Changing weapons is too slow and often you don't have enough of the ammo you need. They need to remove this mechanic in all future titles. Level gating content is also annoying especially as some missions don't have a recommended level attached so you may end up wandering into an area and getting mowed down in seconds.

    Worst of all is the AI companion. This game shouldn't be advertised as having the option of playing in single player mode. I tried one of the raid missions and made it to the final boss. It was challenging but I was wearing it down and enjoying myself but then my partner died and I had to resurrect her. I did so and noticed she was standing still in the middle of the area while the giant robot boss shot her... she died within seconds... I resurrected her several times and she continued to die until I ran out of health and we both died. As there are no checkpoints I had to restart the whole mission and lost 30 minutes. This shouldn't have made it past play testing.

    I really love wolfenstein, more than Doom to be honest but a large part of that is the story and the varied level design. Running through the same areas again and again shooting nazis who keep respawning just isn't all that much fun. It's enjoyable but gets old quite fast. I really hope the developers use youngblood as a lesson in what not to do when making wolfenstein 3.
