Very fun...Great buy...Old school feeling shooter with modern upgrades....As noted above, the alternate 1960's world is incredibly presented, right down to frightening displays of the everyday application of the final solution, or whole cities leveled and rebuilt....I haven't played this game yet but I got this game for very cheap on black friday.
Have you ever asked yourself what our world would be like if history had unfolded differently? Have you ever wondered what would happen if one link in the chain of events was reversed? What if, for example, the Nazis had won World War II? The answer is that the face of this planet would be forever changed, irrevocably damaged. The year is 1960 and the worst has happened. The Nazis turned the tide of World War II in their favor with a new, mysterious brand of advanced weaponry that, along with unrelenting force and intimidation, brought even the most powerful nations to their knees. Who among this conquered planet has the courage to stand up to the merciless regime? What man has the guts and the skills to save the world from the grip of this iron fist? You are B.J. Blazkowicz, American war hero, and you are the only man capable of rewriting history. Only you can save us all.
Launch the most daring counter-offensive in history in Wolfenstein: The New Order, a game that puts you up against oversize Nazi robots, hulking Super Soldiers and elite shock troops in intense first-person combat. Break into hidden research facilities and heavily guarded weapons stashes to find out where the Nazi's advanced technology came from, and level the playing field by upgrading your own tools of destruction with what you find. From mountaintop car chases to underwater exploration, Wolfenstein: The New Order cultivates an unbelievably exhilarating adventure with high-octane action and an immersive game narrative, created by a group of seasoned developers at MachineGames and rendered in stunning detail with the id Tech 5 engine. So if you think you have the heart and the daring of a hero, go up against this terrifying Nazi regime and restore history to its rightful place.

5 STARS....Real fun...Great 'old school' game...The only downside is the fact that the game's online matchmaking has been plagued by problems such as long lobby waits and spotty connections to the host but Microsoft and 343 have both responded quickly and efficiently by applying some server-side updates (hooray for no updates required by the user!) and as of this writing, matchmaking wait times have decreased significantly and will only get better....Verdict: Whether you buy it today or hold out for (possible) Black Friday sales, you will definitely get the right amount of bang for your buck!
