    Wolfenstien: The New Order, the game is great. It complements the original Wolfenstien games good, the story is very original for this game.

There are "skill trees" that are built up that experience is gained by completing challenges, for example: want to get better accuracy when throwing a knife? 50 knife throwing kills would give you a 25% boost reward.
    The only thing I find a bummer, expected anyways, is the price of the game. Wolfenstein: The New Order has a price of $59.99 in the US, which like I said expected, but I find it a bit of a downer since the game only has a single player campaign.

    I have a soft spot for Wolfenstein, ever since playing the original first person all those years ago so I was always going try out this game. What struck me was that the story begins so well and continues this way until it becomes slightly wayward and loses track which is a shame. There are some fantastic moments in the game and a hell of a lot of action so if it's an old school shooterI have a soft spot for Wolfenstein, ever since playing the original first person all those years ago so I was always going try out this game.

There are some fantastic moments in the game and a hell of a lot of action so if it's an old school shooter you are looking for then you will really enjoy this. If I could score it in two halves it would be a 9 for the first half followed by a 5 for the second (5 may seem harsh but I thought the ending was incredibly disappointing) Definitely worth a go but after a good start I really feel the makers of this game ever so slightly lost their way, perhaps some future DLC will rectify this feeling.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. While the gameplay, graphics (even on the X360), and overall story of Wolfenstein: The New Order are very good -- provided you accept the premise that a man in his late 40s could emerge from a 14-year coma with the physique of a Navy SEAL -- I was extremely put off by several of the main characters, who looked, talked, and acted like they had dropped straight out of the present day into 1960. Take Caroline Becker: it simply is not believable that a middle-aged German woman of that era, even in an alternate timeline in which Hitler won the Second World War, would have been covered with tattoos. And the Jimi Hendrix standin is just ridiculous. The characters in the previous Wolfenstein game, including the main character BJ Blaskowicz, felt far more authentic to the setting and time period.

    The other major thing I disliked was the soft-core porn cutscenes with Blaskowica and Anya. It would be one thing if these actually added something to the story, but they're just gratuitous and tacked-on, a lazy ploy to make the game feel more "edgy."

    So here is my initial review of this game which I purchased for $40 and comparing it to Bioshock 1 & 2 (which I've played n the PC and xbox 360 2 to 3 times already). I bought Bioshock 1 & 2 for $5 at the same time.
    If you played the old Wolfenstein games, you will probably really like this game. The reason I'm comparing this to Bioshock though is because the price difference I payed
    So here is my initial review of this game which I purchased for $40 and comparing it to Bioshock 1 & 2 (which I've played n the PC and xbox 360 2 to 3 times already). I bought Bioshock 1 & 2 for $5 at the same time.
    If you played the old Wolfenstein games, you will probably really like this game. The reason I'm comparing this to Bioshock though is because the price difference I payed for the 2 games is $35 and Bioshock has always been one of my favorite games. Wolfenstein is probably a lot better looking on the Xone versus the 360 but I haven't purchased an Xone yet because I haven't decided yet if I want to get this or the new Playstation. Note also that I've only just begun playing Wolfenstein new order and this is my initial opinion after playing the first few chapters.
    I expected a little bit better graphics from Wolfenstein since it is a new release compared to the older Bioshock games. I found myself going back to Bioshock since, well, The Rapture in Bioshock is something you have to experience if you haven't done so yet. Both games compare on par with each other on the graphics (360) which was a bit disappointing for Wolfenstein. I would even go so far as saying I think the graphics in Bioshock used the polygons that you still see on the edges better than Wolfenstein. playing Bioshock with the plasmids in one hand and the guns in the other was a lot more fun than the guns I've seen so far in Wolfenstein. Wolfenstein was also a lot more confusing getting started than Bioshock but hey, who doesn't love killing Nazis. I'm really trying to give Wolfenstein a chance but there are a lot of little things that have bugged me so far such as not being able to open lockers and everything you pick up is either a shield or guns/ammo which doesn't seem as fun as all the different plasmids/weapons in Bioshock. If you never played Bioshock, I recommend you play that first and then Wolfenstein to see what I mean. And I really hate when you can't do other things like pause the cutscenes in Wolfenstein. As a $40 game, that is a shame and it almost seems like Wolfenstein was trying to be better than Bioshock and other like games but I don't think they succeeded but again, I just started Wolfenstein where as I've played Bioshock several times. Wolfenstein will also take up to 7 gigs on your hard drive space which is precious to me since I have all of my 500 gigs filled up with a ton of other games.
    I'm really hoping to find new surprises in Wolfenstein but so far all I have to do is backup around the corner and the nazis lose track of you and don't seem to strategically follow like Bioshock does. All I've been doing so far is just run and gun, backup, run and gun, backup, run and gun, etc..etc... The big robotic dog is cool but all it does is just kill me and I can't seem to kill it.
    I would again recommend you buy Bioshock 1 & 2 (not infinite) before you buy Wolfenstein. For $5 you can't go wrong and you will not regret buying it. The Rapture city is something you need to simply experience and will never forget ( kind of like Half-life 1 & 2 which is also a must buy/play.)
    So I gave Wolfenstein a 6 simply because of the things I thought should be better than older 5 to 10 year games like Bioshock, Half-life and other classics which you must play before you die. But killing nazis is always fun regardless. I'm just hoping I'll want to play Wolfenstein new order again like I did with the older Wolfenstein game.. So far though, I don't see any fun in replaying this game again. But I'll finish the game so I can be fair and say I did so.

    The game is great but is constanly crashing on me. I hope they release and update soon because its really annoying. I would've gave this game a higher rating but because of the constant crashes i found my experience frustating and after a few trys i gave up and started playing something else.

    Wolfenstein: TNO is an interesting mix of things. The Xbox One port is easily an 8, but the 360 port is in need of some discussion.

    First: The graphics. They're awful. The resolutions I HORRIBLY low. You can hardly read the Nazi propaganda posters, even when youre right up to it. While that may be forgivable to some, the very common screen-tearing cannot be ignored and overall bogs down
    Wolfenstein: TNO is an interesting mix of things. The Xbox One port is easily an 8, but the 360 port is in need of some discussion.

    First: The graphics. They're awful. The resolutions I HORRIBLY low. You can hardly read the Nazi propaganda posters, even when youre right up to it. While that may be forgivable to some, the very common screen-tearing cannot be ignored and overall bogs down the game a whole lot.

    Second: The gameplay. This they did right with flying colors. The stealth is stressful (as it should be) and absolutely required in harder difficulties, when you're low on ammo and have little to no armor/health. Its so satisfying to slit the throat of an Officer so he doesn't call for reinforcements and then systematically eliminate all the remaining infantry and/or robots. The run-n-gun gameplay is phenominal. the feeling of your bullets literally TEARING their flesh is unique and morbidly satisfying. The weapons are also interesting, though the balance is not. I hope you like assault rifles that feel like an anti-tank rifle.

    Third: The Story. I love the story. It's unique and makes you think about what it would be like to live in the Nazi's fantasized Reich. The story of how the war went down is very cool and makes you wonder how close this reality came true, if such plausible events happened, minus the robots. The character is deep, though his love side-story isn't. His comrades in the reistance, besides Caroline and his romance partner, are very interesting and likeable characters and have a good amount of depth/story. The choices you make are very well-played out, Its all added onto a fantastic collectible system. This is a solid 7/10.

    OK, the stealth gameplay is not working and seems forced. But try Wolfenstein: The New Order as an old-school FPS and you'll have the best, gory, mindless time you've had with a game of this kind for a long time.
