Wolfenstein: The New Order
10 October 2014
Excerpt: Well, it's been some 5 years since we've seen a new Wolfenstein game and I must say, it's been worth the wait. Wolfenstein: The New Order looks absolutely spectacular on the PS4, whether you are swimming in the underwater sewers of Germany, making your way through a Nazi-infested bullet hell...

Conclusion: It’s a steep price for what you get at release. A rental will suffice for now unless you’re a dyed-in-the-wool Wolfenstein fan, in which case I’m sure you already have the super limited ultra mega edition.
Pros: + Wolfenstein has always been different from other WWII shooters + Decent length + Item pickup is clumsy
Cons: - Story could be stronger - Gun selection is thin
Summary: Wolfenstein: The New Order expands the series far beyond the 2009 reboot by delivering a surprising yet satisfying mixture of action and adventure. The lack of a multiplayer mode does little to detract from the package, given how well the perk system is implemented within the campaign, which...
