Wolfenstein: The New Order Review
Every set piece in this game is designed with action in mind. And that’s for a very good reason, they always focus on making the gameplay more immersive and unique and they push towards making the game so much better and more interesting.
The story on its own gets better and better as you play. It does have a few moments where you will scratch your head. But overall it does a very good job for setting the tone of the game and allowing you to push the boundaries and constantly play off a very distinct and fun, immersive idea. It certainly works as a whole and it only makes the gameplay more and more intense, which is what you really want to have here.
There are hidden minigames, a stellar soundtrack that increases immersion, lore-friendly articles, gunplay and powerful melee. All these little things add up to create a super rewarding, fun and unique experience that you will enjoy and appreciate all the time. It does take a bit to get used to it, but in the end, the game is going to push you onward and you will have a whole lot of fun with it.
It’s also interesting to see that the voiceovers are authentic and they really went all-in to create an environment of insecurity and challenges that you have to overcome here. It makes a lot of sense to do that and you will be pretty happy with it and the entire process.
The facial animations are amazing in this game and you will be amazed by the stellar attention to detail. The game world is huge, so it’s clear that they put a lot of work into creating all of this. But there are some flaws too.
Moving down on ladders is a bit of a problem and it takes away from the immersion. The environmental textures are a bit bad at times, and you will not have a clear objective marker sometimes as well. This does make things more confusing, and you have to try and find some way to deal with the process.
It’s quite impressive to see a game that manages to put all these things together and explore all options in a meaningful manner. You will be quite impressed with the experience and the resounding attention to detail. Even if the game has a few flaws here and there, it’s insanely fun and it will offer you lots of enjoyment for what it is.
