    A very solid followup to TNO with a few missteps

    Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus once again delivers a very fun over the top game set in an alternate history 1960's where Germany won World War II. The gunplay is feels great, shootouts are satisfying, and the characters are once again excellent with fantastic performances from the VAs. If you enjoyed The New Order or just like crazy shooting games in general, you will no doubt enjoy New Colossus. However, the game does feel shorter than New Order, and for some reason there's no climatic final boss like beforehand. Plot wise it makes sense why this didn't happen, but it's still disappointing. In addition: the game just ends with a massive cliffhanger. There have also been technical issues reported for the PC version. These thankfully did not happen to me aside from a couple of crashes. These drawbacks do disappoint, however the game is still very fun and is worth your time.

    This game was simply BJ doing his thing. The story was fine for the most part. There is a part that's heavy on sci-fi but I didn't mind because it meant BJ getting back to doing what he does best. I won't spoil it. What else? I think it was just as much fun as The New Order and if I am being honest maybe a little bit easier. There are challenging parts, yes, but I felt like I got through this game a lot quicker. I didn't check to see if this game had fewer chapters though. Maybe I just loved it so much I breezed through it. Either way, if you liked The New Order then chances are you'll like this one too. Lastly, I laughed quite a few times unlike in The New Order which I thought was a bit more serious. That said, if you have the funds - and even better are a Gamer's Club member - pick it up and enjoy. Or alternatively, you could put it on your Christmas Wishlist. :-)

    Reviews have been out a while, and I don't have much to add. It takes the frantic action of the original entries in the series, adds in AAA production value and effects, and sets the player free to sow mayhem and stick it to the man with the 'stache. A good buy if you find it on sale. The story is give or take, but the action is where it's at. 4/5 Slurms.

    Wolfenstein 2 continues the remarkable story of BJ Blazkowicz. What makes this title great are the characters you encounter along the way and the development of one of gamings best stories. The gameplay is also good, but nothing out of the ordinary in the FPS genre. Graphics and visuals are good. Sound and music are also fantastic.

    I purchase the game during Black Friday and really enjoyed playing it quite a bit. Ended up liking the story so much, went back on steam and purchased the first part and the DLC. The game really puts you into the story and is really fun to play. I would purchase a sequel if they kept up with the quality.

    If you're buying this game you probably know what you're in for: gore, blood, and lots of bad guys. The game isn't a very long game and the lack of multiplayer hurts -- but the game is just so much fun...you've never had more fun with an axe before. This game is rated M for a reason. Not for the squeamish.

    The beginning is a little twisted but it gets a lot better as you plays. The graphics and gameplay are awesome. I loved the very first Wolfenstein when it came out years ago and this one is just as good. I havent played it much yet but plan to.

    The game is shorter than the other Wolfenstein’s due to the fact that they created many cut scenes it does get in the way of gameplay and some of the characters can be a bit annoying but overall I found the game very entertaining and action-packed

    Killing Naz-i never gets boring. Seeing a singleplayer AAA game is quite rare these day. I thought 18hr of gameplay and Im done. But no, there's actually quite a lot of task in this game. The story and character are something to get into.

    The performance is really good on this game for PC I'm maxing out a 144 megahertz 1440p monitor with a 1080 TI playing on Mein Lebein settings. I like the storyline. I like the fact that it is comical as well.

    Now Steam loads a bunch of garbage on my PC every time I start it but it does me no good because I can't get Wolfenstein to run anyway. Wasted time & money.

    This game is the best thing that I’ve played since Half Life. What a great and engaging story line. Gameplay is challenging. Loads of content here which will entertain for hours.

    I never played the first one but always heard great things. I'm a PC gamer and I think this is a great port. Game is very fun, runs smooth as butter and visually looks very nice.

    If you like a lot of action and you are familiar with the Wolfenstein series you won't be disappointed. A little difficult at times, but you wouldn't want it any other way!!

    You're going to have a great time destroying people who follow Hitler. Can you believe Best Buy won't let me use the word for his political party?

    I'm not really one for FPS stealth games, that's why I drop the game down to easy and came out both guns blazing! Great experience from start to finish.

    This game is an excellent sequel to previous reboot from a few years back. Can be argued that game is too hard to a fault.
