Excerpt: Wolfenstein: The New Order out Duke Nukem Forever's Duke Nukem Forever. No offense to developer Machine Games, but this game had zero buzz before release. Then it came out roughly the same time as Watch_Dogs, and the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. Why?
Conclusion: Fans of Wolfenstein of old will appreciate how it has grown and matured, and newcomers will enjoy playing in this horrific alternate history. Not to mention, every day is a great day to shoot Nazis.
Pros: A serious spin on the Wolfenstein franchise with far more mature themes, yet it never forgets how hilarious it can be, making it one of the most fun Nazi-killing games to date;
Cons: Sometimes it takes itself too seriously, contains more than one questionable plot points and a few tiresome combat zones that include too many waves of enemies.
Excerpt: There have been a lot of “what ifs” throughout history, but one of the biggest ones was “what if the Nazis won World War II?” Wars are always fought over conflicting viewpoints, distorted sense of right and wrong and most certainly greed.
Pros: + Fantastic group of characters., + Great level variety., + Tons of weapons to murder Nazi's with., + Tons of content for first person shooter., + Single player only., + Fun but challenging perk system.
Cons: - Would have loved more choices during the campaign., - Tedious armor/ammo pick up., - Clueless AI.
Conclusion: Concept: After Nazis take over the world, B.J. Blazkowicz takes it back with the help of a tight-knit band of resistance fighters
Graphics: Textures vary from muddy to sharp depending on the environment
Sound: The chugging, unimaginative guitar riffs get old quickly.
Wolfenstein: The New Order (Xbox One) Review – Ditch Your Other Shooters, This is The One to Own

Excerpt: Machine Games’ and Bethesda should be immensely proud of what they have accomplished. Wolfenstein: The New Order could quite easily be called the best shooter on the Xbox One to date. Yes it’s that good.
Conclusion: This is a series with some serious pedigree. While it may, at times, have disappeared amongst the throng of other first-person shooters out there (and there's plenty of them), Wolfenstein is the father of them all; the prototype laid down before id Software went on to blow us all away with Doom.
