About Wolfenstein: The New Order

The New Order is set in an alternate history circa 1960, which depicts a world where the Nazis emerged victorious in World War II. Taking control of hero William “B.J.” Blazkowicz, gamers battle legions of Nazis across Europe and infiltrate enemy strongholds, in what is described as an “impossible counter-offensive” against the Nazi powers.

Summary

A triumphant return for the Wolfenstein series. Despite some lack-lustre boss battles, killing Nazis has never been so much fun.

We like

  • Great narrative, characters and voice-acting delivers an excellent production that engages throughout.
  • Strong level design encourages tactical play. Switching between combat and stealth gives the game a nice pace.
  • Meaty weapons, slick control scheme (including cover system) and impressive A.I. deliver an all-round challenging and immersive shooter.

We dislike

  • Boss battles lack originality.
  • Being forced to pick up ammo and med-kits by constantly tapping Square gets a little annoying.
  • A skill system with point assignment would have made more of an impact than a perk system that runs in the background and can easily be forgotten about

London landmarks such as Big Ben and St Paul’s Cathedral still stand but are dwarfed by a colossal Nazi fortress. The English capital ...
