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?
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. The world has seen a lot of evil, but nothing quite as sickening as the Third Reich.
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. I eventually turned off the music
Playability: The satisfying kickback of the guns is offset by the lobotomized A.I. How did this army take over the world, exactly?
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 . Of course, id aren't on development duties for Wolfenstein: The New Order , but their imprint, their legacy, can be felt through every facet of the game. It starts off slow.
Pros: + Decent gunplay, variable arsenal with alt-fire and dual-wielding, really interesting setting, quality B-movie storytelling.
Cons: - Some questionable AI, terrible weapon select setup, takes a while to warm up.
Excerpt: Det oprindelige Wolfenstein 3D var unægteligt med til at søsætte den ekstremt populære FPS-genre, hvis afkom i disse tider skyller ind over vores spilkyster. Der har været en del efterkommere, som alle på mere eller mindre succesfuld maner har holdt live i den nu 22 år gamle franchise (endnu ældre, hvis du medregner Muse Softwares Castle Wolfenstein fra 1981 – men det er lidt en anden boldgade).
Pros: Underholdende over the top action, Ganske fin variation, Flotte mellemsekvenser, God lydside
