Summary

Wolfenstein: The New Order is an action-adventure shooter game played from a first-person perspective. It is the semi-sequel to 2009's Wolfenstein, however utilizes very little from the game and drops any direct references to veil or supernatural. To progress through the story, the player battle enemies throughout levels. The game utilizes a health system in which players' health is divided into separate sections that regenerate; if an entire section is lost, the player must use a health pack to replenish the missing health. In combat, a cover system can be used as assistance against enemies. The player have the ability to lean around, over, and under cover, which can be used as a tactical advantage during shootouts and stealth levels. The game gives the player a wide variety of weapon options—they can be found on the ground, retrieved from dead enemies, or removed from their stationary position and carried around.

i hate Wolfenstein, its a bad shooting game that owes everything to its setting of killing nazis but that has nothing good to show for it,bad story,gameplay,atmosphere,mechanics,you name it and they butchered it.
Disgusting,and their little witty dialogue is even worse.

Played on: Playstation 5
Version: Playstation 4
Edition: Digital

Had some fun. This felt outdated even for its time that it was released. Played more like a PS3 title to be quite honest. The story is generic & the character you play as is even more so. I must also note that this game can be difficult if you aren't careful with its difficulty or play style.

All in all, this was fun but I will easily forget it in no time. That being said, it was fun enough to continue through the franchise.

Final verdict: Wait for a sale

Just another fps, a unnecessarily harder one at that. Neither gameplay, nor the story holds your attention for long. But if you are really into FPS games, you should give it a try.

Killing Nazis stealthily or brutally is fantastically satisfying. Mick Gordon doing the OST is always a win.

Only thing left for me is to finish the game on Über.

EDIT: My Über playthrough is finally done and so is the Platinum.
Final thoughts: for a first game, MachineGames knocked it out of the park. The gunplay feels great, and the perks unlock (for the most part) naturally as you play which feels great.
The level-design is fantastic leaving you the choice of either killing everything in sight or try to circumvent every fight (a must if going for Über).

All in all, a great game that has managed to breath some very needed energy into the Wolfenstein name

Game is quite imaginative on its setting of what if World War II had ended in the opposite fashion. Most of this being robots and machines, some of which shown in a cruel or wicked sense. The plot itself though not super great by itself, does lend to some fun environments, ie. the moon, underwater, etc.

On a lighter note, the ASMR whispering of the protagonist Blaskowicz never gets old, but his monologues maybe. The sex scene is out of nowhere and the difference in timelines is not all that big.

The game play is really fun, rhe bullets always sounds muffled in a way which makes shooting feel more clean? You get to use a variety of guns and some areas feel like a puzzle to navigate - which I personally enjoy. Some plot points like the man-machine at the end was quite evokative and the mechanics to defeat the final boss were great.

Difficulty: 2nd hardest one idk
