Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is a standalone prequel to the critically acclaimed first-person action-adventure shooter, Wolfenstein: The New Order. The adventure, which spans eight chapters and two interconnected stories, features the hallmarks of MachineGames – thrilling action, immersive story and intense first-person combat. As war hero B.J. Blazkowicz, arm yourself with new weapons such as the bolt-action rifle and grenade-launching Kampfpistole as you attempt to thwart the advancing Nazi war machine, and take advantage of duel-wielding pipes that can be used for wall climbing – or for vicious take-downs of never-before-seen Nazi adversaries.

I purchased this game after playing and enjoying New Order. This game follows a two part story that explores more of the Wolfenstein hero's backstory (no chance in me spelling his name right without looking it up).
It follows into New Order well enough, but there are certain things that feel a bit lacking. Wolfenstein Castle is gorgeous, but I would have wanted to spend more time there. The level design is a little flawed compared to the preceding sequel (if that makes sense). Still, it's a fun game that surprises in its second act, and there's a bonus set of classic levels that will appeal to old fans of the series.
Awesome game. I played the OG 1980s original Wolfenstein and most of the other games. I guess the same genre over and over again can get old. Lets be honest, when you play CS GO, Battlefield, COD, MOH, HALO, etc etc. Its all the same right? It blurs all together. Almost like Final Fantasy. Once you played like 10 of these, its all the same, BUT Awesome is STILL Awesome. So no complaints. If this was a stupid game I would say so. THANK YOU!
At first I thought this would be more of the same style game as the New Order. The cover of the game certainly is not as creative as the other Wolfensteins'. At first that kind of through me. (Made me think it was some kind of cheap add on) Make no mistake, It has the more action than the New Order and less boring cinematics. Well done Wolfenstein!!!!
One of the first games with graphics I ever played on a PC was wolfenstein. It was an amazing progress from solitaire and the minefield game they only had until that point.
This is a refreshing throw back to my high school days hanging out with friends trying to beat their high scores.
Great game for the retro fans out there.
I'm such a fan of old school shooters and Wolfenstein was one of my faves alongside Quake and Doom. Ever since Wolfenstein 3D and Spear of Destiny I've gone on to play Return to Castle Wolfenstein and the Wolfenstein from 2009. I absolutaly loved Wolfenstein The NEw Order and was so excited when I heard about The Old Blood coming out... and for only $20. The game rules! BUY IT!
I won't say this is better than New Order because I would consider them to be too different for comparison. The game play style is identical. Both can be a little over the top at times, but I'm not playing them for the realistic aspect. They are just fun games all around!
