If you have ever played Wolfenstien: The New Order, then you pretty much know what to expect in this game. It’s pretty much just more of the same. However, if you haven’t played it, and are unfamiliar with the story and events of W:TNO, don’t fret because that knowledge isn’t mandatory since this game is a prequel.

The game is a FPS, that takes place during WWII along an alternate timeline, where the Nazis have perfected robotics, cybernetics and weapon-tech. Meaning you will find yourself battling robotic super soldiers, cyborgs and well equipped soldiers eager to tear your head off.

While the game is a FPS, it does have many stealth elements. Sure, you can run in guns blazing and possibly survive. However the safer, and in my opinion way more fulfilling method, is stealthing your way through certain locations. Why blast a heavily armored super soldier when you can sneak through some air ducts and get behind him to shut off his power? Why run through a kennel and battle cyborg dogs when you can sneak up to them while they sleep and silence them quickly?

Basically, the game should appeal to both fans of stealth games, as well as FPS enthusiasts. There’s really a lot to love with this game! Although you should be warned that the game is not without it’s faults, which I will list below! First though,  allow me to tell you what it does well.

Pros
  • Flawless controller support
  • Incredibly long for a 20 dollar game
  • Breathtaking graphics
  • Excellent voice acting
  • Fantastic Storyline
  • Vent Crawling!
  • Good variety of enemies
  • Challenging gameplay with adjustable difficulty levels
Cons
  • No Multi-player
  • Inadequate Tutorial
  • Not much replay value.
  • Occasionally the AI can be a bit dimwitted
  • No manual save

 

RATING: 7/10
