Without further ado, lets get to it!
Story Thus Far
The year is 1960, and the Nazis have won the Second World War. Our hero, B.J. Bazkowicz (Blazko to his friends), must launch an impossible counteroffensive plot against the monstrous Nazi regime that has conquered the globe.
This game isn't for the faint of heart on the Uber difficulty setting (which, BTW, I'm playing on), so prepare to die a lot—and I mean a lot. There aren't enough health packs laying around to save you, which is fantastic to see, in my opinion. It's been a while since there was a good old fashioned health meter instead of my screen going red while I go hide for cover and wait for everything to be all right. If collectibles are your thing, there are a lot in this game, ranging from health meter boosts to Nazi stolen gold and to some concept art everybody loves concept art am I right leave me a comment below on your thoughts about concept art.
Regarding the Xbox One graphics, I must say that, apart from some texture popping, the game looks and runs well. I did run into an issue with a floating gun that bounced like a yo-yo, but otherwise the game looks smooth considering its post-WWII setting.
In this part I would normally write about the characters, but honestly there are only two that are worth a damn—B.J Blazkowicz and the love interest of the story, Anya. If you want know more about the other characters then pick up this awesome game.
B.J. Blazkowicz is the main protagonist of the game. He spent 14 years in a vegetative state, and after coming to he began to lead a small resistance group in Berlin with his old friend Caroline (who is stuck in a wheelchair for some apparent reason; this has yet to be explained [or if it was, I kinda drifted off]) with the hope that together they can liberate the world from the Nazis
Anya is a doctor who studied in London but had to become a nurse because there are no women's rights in the Nazi world. She looked after Blazko during his vegetative state. She witnessed the Nazis killing all of the mentally and physically disabled patients in the hospital and was taken prisoner. Blazko, being the hero he is, came out of his vegetative state and rescued her, and they fell in love. [Basically it's like Mario and Princess Peach.]
This game has been my surprise of the year, and I give it a solid 4 out of 5. The only reason for the mark down is that there is no multiplayer option. I would have loved see an old type of FPS multiplayer version where you find guns, armor, and health packs lying around. For me, that's what's missing from this title.
So this has been my review of Wolfenstein: The New Order. Hope you guys enjoyed reading it as much as I have enjoying playing the game!
