A worthy Return to Wolfenstein...Aufwiedersehen!,
This review is from: Wolfenstein: The New Order (PS4) (Video Game)
Love it. Single player game, lots of things to shoot, brain off - control pad in hand - let's go nuts.
Been a while since the single player game has had any love in the FPS world and the story just continues the Wolfenstein arc from all those years ago. Graphics are great although my review loses its final star due to sometimes craggy draw distances and the blurring effect used for distant models - takes me out of the moment sometimes and a bit annoying.
Game-play is as you'd expect: run, gun, stealth, knife, kaboom... Nice progression arc unlocking new abilities by performing in-game kill types etc (these include knife throwing for ranged stealth kills, silencers for pistols, faster health regeneration and so on). Ability to change the difficulty mid game should you feel you are getting pounded too much - although on the 2nd hardest setting it isnt really that difficult!
Action very rarely lets up and you need to make a pretty harsh call early in the game which affects the story arc - so plenty of re-playability for when you choose the other arc.
It is cartoon violence, but sometimes can be pretty brutal especially when things are shown up close, and even when they are not shown on screen (you'll know what I mean when you get to it).
Favourite part of the game so far? Going toe to toe with crazed commanders as you try and stab each other to death - hilarious yet ridiculously violent at the same time. And a final word? Panzerhund... only in Wolfenstein!
