    In a year full of some of the best games we have seen in quite a while, there hasn’t been much on the lackluster side. So, if, you’re like me, with a backlog of games that goes back to the beginning of the year, choose your games to play wisely and put Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus on the top of your priority list. You won’t be disappointed.

    Machine Games and Bethesda surprise us with the second title of Wolfenstein, which is so entertaining that we didn't think it was so necessary. Thanks to the id Tech 6 engine and a development that catches the player, we are facing one of the best shooters of this generation.

    Despite some heavy patriotic messages that may sometimes distract the narrative, killing nazis is as fun as ever. Wolfenstein II expands over his predecessor with a rampage of old-school brutality, dual-wielding ass-kicking kills that makes it as one of the finest single player shooters of the recent days and a truly joyful experience. Highly recommended.

    Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a stellar follow-up to MachineGames’ 2014 reboot of the franchise, one with super-satisfying combat and a wacky, engaging story. Sure, it might go a little too far at times, but you’ll have a blast with The New Colossus from start to finish, that’s a promise.

    Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus isn't that much different from the last installment, but great visual/audio elements with strong encounters design keep the experience fresh. Highly recommended for fps fans.

    We've already seen that Machine Games can craft a great playing shooter, but with Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus they've also got a more interesting and varied story to tell this time around.

    A Breath Of Fresh Air

    If you get chance.... The storyline is as solid as I have seen after holding off a few days for the X and a 4K TV.
    A Breath Of Fresh Air

    If you get chance....

    The storyline is as solid as I have seen after holding off a few days for the X and a 4K TV. You won't be able to appreciate this game fully unless you have the appropriate equipment to see the detail. Savouring every moment would likely be an understatement as you delve into the futuristic Nazi development, discover the astonishingly good guns and battle huge mechs.

    I was hoping for better than Old Blood and more New Order and to see a New Order playback just affirmed the game's direction at the start.

    Starting off with a broken B.J. Blazkowicz, the game starts a little grim but it soon gives the gleaming chances every gamer savours.

    Graphics are beyond anything I have ever seen albeit going 4K and Xbox X at the same time, it's hard not to be blown away. The scene on the Sub where you chat to Grace Walker and it just goes full-on facial is amazing which is impacted further by the music.

    This game really is something to behold. If I said any more, I'd be spoiler alerting the crap out of this post. I would much rather you tried it. Game On!

My only gripe with it is I wish the missions were a little longer but that aside I enjoyed this game a lot of the best shooters I've played in a long time and one of the top games of 2017 Expand

The game play is fun, but really repetitive after awhile. The campaign is longer than a stander FPS along with some side mission, but their's not a whole lot to do after that. I wait for a price drop. Expand

There are no doubts that Machine Games know how to knock together a serviceable, linear first-person shooter. The sequel also offers greater depth to its characters this time around, resulting in a more compelling narrative overall. Like the original however, i do not feel that the game does enough to stand out. Level design is actually less interesting this time around, and my play-through, was plagued by graphical bugs that further tarnished what is a fairly ugly game already. Its a touch better than "okay". Expand
