    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.

    Smart, satisfying, brutal: Undoubtedly one of the best shooters of the generation.

    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.

It is not a long story but has muchThis is my favorite single player game that I've ever played. It is so much fun and has a great story. It is not a long story but has much more you can do after the 12 or so hours of main gameplay. It also has an amazing setting of the 1960's if the Nazis won the war. It seems very realistic with a focus on technology. This is such a good game and I recommend it to anyone who likes single player games. Expand

I don't want massive worlds where i have to spend hours getting from a to b, i want frequent gunplay with good weapons and good enemies and enough of a story to keep thing rolling along.. this is Wolfenstein.
    It does have some bugs, I lost sound at one period but that was it
    If your a FPS shooter fan of old , pick it up its good fun and the best Wolfenstein for some time

Its a fun shoot em up that's well designed and thought out, however i don't think it lives up to its predecessor. The story felt dull at a few points in the game while a few other points stood out. While the New order was almost stealth heavy, this game i felt lacks that and is a little disappointing. Bottom line If you like slaughtering Nazi and white supremacists, then this is the game for you.. Expand

As a Jewish American, the power fantasy of mowing down Nazis in the original Wolfenstein was intoxicating. That same cultural identity is what makes the newer games a depressing slog for me. This game is extremely well made, I just can't say that it's any fun. Expand

It's a shame because it has potential (Who in this modern day doesn't want to kill nazis and klansmen?) but they seriously need to hire at least one person who actually knows anything about game design and engine design before it could possibly get there.
