    The original reboot of Wolfenstein (New Order) was an exercise in greatness, and New Colossus keeps pushing forward. With the focus sharply on a single player experience that hasn't changed since New Order (and continued in the "1.5" Wolfenstein: Old Blood,) there remains proof that FPS games can tell excellent tales that do not feel the need to tack on an oversaturated multiplayer component. And that's what Wolfenstein brings to the table: it's not a multiplayer game trying to satisfy a need for a single player component with a paint by numbers story. Wolfenstein is an exciting, interesting story told in an equally interesting alternative history (that holds relevance in today's climate,) with unique characters. It's a FULL story, demanding your patience and attention between bouts of exciting gameplay. Wolfenstein 2 is a throwback to a time where a FPS told a better story than what's become the norm nowadays. If you're in it for multiplayer, there is none and you'll need to move along to the Call of Duties, Battlefields, and SW Battlefronts on the market. If you want a well-told story set in a genre that's long placed single player into "second thought" category, Wolfenstein has got you covered.

    The gunplay is really fun on normal and the story is intense and written well. The various weapons and mods also work real well for causing havoc. Unfortunately the levels are still boring grey hallways for the most part and the difficulty system is kind of broken. I play most games on one of the harder difficulties and rarely play on normal not just for the challenge but to get more playability from a game. In this game playing on anything above normal turns what should be a "run and gun" type shooter into a "hide behind cover" and occasionally "peek out" for a shot type shooter. Since your health doesn’t regenerate like in Call of Duty this is a big issue because your supposed to be constantly moving to pick up ammo and health while stealth/shooting enemies. Doom was all 'run and gun' and playing on the hardest difficulty didn’t change that. I played New Order on Uber and was still able to stay on the move for the most part.

    I hadn't played a Wolfenstein game since the original Xbox version of Return to Castle Wolfenstein back in 2003. This game is FUN! A lot of fun. It's refreshing to see a game that focuses on single player experience instead of lightly making a single player campaign and putting more of the focus on multiplayer. The themes in Wolfenstein II are dark but there is fun to be had as the story unfolds. The visuals are brilliant! The downside of the game would have to be the controls since this FPS doesn't feel exact when aiming compared to the other shooters that I play. I had to kick up the sensitivity a lot to find a happy compromise. My other complaint would be that the game has an odd way of having the player pick up ammo or health refills. Sometimes the game picks up them automatically and other times I am required to pick it up myself with the press of the Square button. This is frustrating when you're in the middle of a fight with enemies surrounding you. Overall, I'd say that this game is required gaming. Seeing the premise of an alternate reality where we lost World War II is intriguing while the game delivers a tongue in cheek tone at times.

    Brilliant game. If you have previously played New Order and Old Blood you wont be disappointed. Great fun to play, what I love about Wolfenstein games is they stay true to original shooters - there is nothing complicated or adversely clever about them. But that is not a bad thing. Like all Wolfenstein games, you can pick it up and play it again even after completing the story - and still have oodles of fun. The gameplay is slick although the occassional buggy moment can occur but nothing to ruin the game. Graphics are good, some nice effects throughout the game, the dark oppressive world - large imposing buildings/dark scary environments etc...this is something Bethesda does very well through the games. If you like shooters this is a must.

    I love the new orderr abd was looking forward to this game. I saw review scores of 9/10 and thought this could he better than the new order. But this game has some poor level design insanely hard cause if cheap deaths and over the top violence. I like hard games but this game would start you on missions where you were automatically getting shot at and you have no idea how to escape. You can’t really do stealth since you can’t hide very easily. It is way too much cursing in the game and gratuitous scenes. No one should play this game. The story was ridiculous and you will not believe how someone survives death. The only partifthe story that was interesting was William ( the main character back story). I will give the game a 7/10.

    If you played the preceding games to this trilogy, you'll know it can be pretty brutal and bloody. If you haven't played them, well, there's your warning. But it's definitely 'for a cause' and not just wanton violence. You can Google for more in-depth reviews for the plot, of course. GOOD: "Guns...Lots of guns". If you love shooters, this is an awesome one. Plot is pretty imaginative, IMO. A LITTLE bit far-fetched, but still enjoyable. Some dark humor too. BAD: Cut-scenes are a bit long. Not Metal Gear-level, but there are a little too much. However, one may argue with me that without them, there's less of a plot and less to care about the characters. I really enjoyed the game, overall. I got my money's worth!

    I've been playing the Wolfenstein and Doom games since the days I had the originals on my Atari Jaguar. The new generation on the PS4 are some of the smoothest, most entertaining and fast paced games you can find in the first person shooter genre. The stories and characters are fun - it's not only unique to experience this dark world where the "German party at the time" (BB won't let me use the actual term) won WWII, but it's even MORE fun to shoot up the "German party at the time" - and there's a lot of nice twists, while keeping the game consistently moving forward. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a shooter that runs smooth, and is a blast to play.

    Up until now, I was never a huge fan of Wolfenstein, not because I didn't like the series, but because I'd never really played one before. That all changed when I played The New Order and The Old Blood back to back in 2014. I was hooked by the chaotic action, an engaging story and characters, and frantic gameplay. When this game was announced, it was a no brainer purchase. Everything that made NWO and TOB great is here and cranked to 11. The graphics are awesome, the story and characters are charming, and the gameplay is just as fun and visceral as ever. If you like FPS's, you owe it to yourself to give Wolfenstein II and its predecessors a try!

    I'm in agreement with most of the reviewers here, but did not enjoy the sometimes insane difficulty in trying to operate the enigma machine. You almost need a photographic memory, and are only given 10 seconds, or so.....and if you fail the code is gone! The instructions are pretty much useless, as they flash by too quick to comprehend. It makes it impossible to look anything like the actual code machine. Overall, I enjoyed the game, but have to say that the game " PREY" was much more enjoyable.....from the story line perspective, as well as game play.

    Wolfenstein New World Order and Old Blood set a high bar for quality but I will say this game definitely feels just as refreshing. It is pure fun and lets you dual wield from the beginning. I think the length is just right and the story is somewhat forgettable. Each level design was new and there is just the right enough stealth compared to vigilante parts. On a vanilla PS4 it looks excellent and runs at a smooth 60fps. Lastly the normal difficulty is a decent balance and requires skill to complete. I appreciate the slight frustration and satisfaction thereafter. Dont skip on this game.

    What more do you want me to say? The title says it all! This game is amazing from begging to end. There are edge of your seat moments in this that feel like you’re in a theater waiting to see what happens! The graphics are good, a few pop ups here and there, the gameplay is fast and solid as it should be. The story is just amazing following up After the first two. This is a game you must definitely pick up and play as soon as the kids are out of the house!

    I very much like this game and am a big fan of the original. While I'm glad to see a new installment on the franchise I do like the 1rst game better. It may just be because its harder to follow on to a great jump out of the gate but I feel like the writing and development is about 80% of the 1st one. Still very good but I'm somehow not as drawn in as the original. This game still does plenty of things I like one or two even better but I think I'd like to see one or two more levels and slightly more polish on the writing. Id still highly recommend it though. Heres to hoping for another installment after this one.

    If you're on the fence about picking up Wolfenstein II, then let me help push you over the fence to the purchase side... the game is awesome! I had played the first game when it came out and was so excited when the sequel dropped which takes place right after the events of the first game. The story is engaging, the characters are memorable, and the difficulty is balanced and well rounded. If you are looking for a great FPS to play on PS4 or XB, pick up this game, but I suggest you play the first game in the series to help you familiarize yourself with the characters.

    Really solid game, just like the original. They are really pushing the bar with brutality in some of the cut scenes. It is a mature game, this is not a game for your children. Mechanics are tight and combat is fun just like the original. My favorite feature in ths game is the perk tree. You start to get pretty powerful once you get deep into the game. The heavy weapons are also a blast (pun intended). The story is pretty good, but nothing revolutionary. All in all a great game.

    Wolfenstein has been one of my top favorite video games. The story-lines have been fantastic throughout. But I must say that Wolfenstein II definitely met my expectations. In fact, it actually surpassed them. This was phenomenally made. It is intense! that it even makes you want to jump into the screen to fight alongside the not to be trifled with, William J. Blazkowicz. All in all, this game is just plain amazing! IT IS A MUST HAVE! JUST GET IT! YOU WON'T REGRET IT! (:

    A bigger improvement from The New Order and The Old Blood games. The downside though is not being able to replay old missions but there's this feature in the game where you get to go back to the places where certain main missions took place in and you have to kill commanders. If you love some shoot em up action then this is your game however I recommend you play the other two that I mentioned before, this continues right after The New Order and in order to understand the story.

    Amazing action sequences, gun mechanics, and overall gameplay. You're able to play the game in a variety of ways - which was a pleasant surprise - you can stealth your way through each zone or go in guns blazing and both experiences are enjoyable. The game has a great story and great supporting characters. The only downsides I have to the game are as follows: - I hated the main HUB for your character - the last quarter of the game feels incredibly rushed

    First, I have no idea why the internet went crazy briefly in regards to this game killing the bad guys (review system will not let me type what the name of the group of bad guys is, but they are WWII era bad guys). The premise is simple, the bad guys have done bad things, so you kill them to restore the world to be better than it is under their control. It is an excellent game with a surprisingly good story, but the real fun is taking out the bad guys.

    This game is not for kids. But if you like blasting N*zis into a brutal oblivion, it’s for you! You play an angry man who is out to remove N*zis from power after they have won World War II usinga secret technology. They’ve taken over the world and it’s your job to win it all back! The game runs very fast and looks stellar. It’s always satisfying to knock off a N*zi in a video game. And this is the cream of the crop.

    Boring generic shooter

    I just wasn't impressed with this game. The graphics look good and the guns are decent, but it's nothing special. It's a routine by the numbers shooter. There's very little depth here and the customization options are very limited. You got a lot more for your money with the previous versions of the game. I think this thing is living off of reputation more than it actually being good.
