Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

released on Oct 27, 2017

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is the eleventh installment of the Wolfenstein series and a sequel to the 2014's Wolfenstein: The New Order. The game follows the main protagonist, William Joseph "B.J." Blazkowicz, in his efforts to ignite a Second American Revolution.

The game is played from a first-person perspective and most of its levels are navigated on foot. The story is arranged in chapters, which players complete in order to progress. A binary choice in the prologue alters the game's entire storyline; some characters and small plot points are replaced throughout the timelines. The game features a variety of weapons, most of which can be dual wielded. A cover system is also present.

The gameplay in this one is just much funner to me. The base is the same, just all the other gameplay stuff makes it better. I really didnt like the difficulty spike at the end of the first one because it really showed off how not fun the game was. It really made me look back at the stealth and wonder why it was even there. The stealth in this one is better, but it feels better to just ignore it (from the last game).
I also liked how the narrative ties into your health/armor totals.

Wolfenstein ll: the New Colossus é um jogo fps muito divertido e usar certas armas (principalmente de curta distância) é muito satisfatório, a história é boa apesar das maluquices e os gráficos bons (o gráfico em jogo é melhor que o cgi das cutcenes inclusive), mas enquanto eu estava jogando o jogo crashou 5 VEZES, o que é muito irritante e a dificuldade é muito alta (mas as estrelas a menos nem é tanto por isso) sinto que poderia ter sido muito melhor mas é um bom jogo, e melhor que o anterior.

not as good as the new order was, but its still a fantastic entry into the franchise. i loved the soundtrack, combat, and characters even more than the last game, but found certain sections a little too over the top and annoying to play through. still, highly recommend the game if you want to play an amazing shooter.

Fuck yes. the epic return to the good old american passtime of killing nazis. The set pieces in this game are so fucking good. This GOES PLACES. the combat is tight, encounters are hard as fuck, and BJ is a BEAST. A ride from start to finish.

Narratively the game does slam you over the head with its themes and messaging but when your game is about Nazis ruling over America I can forgive that. Gameplay wise BJ feels a lot better to control, tearing through Nazis feels better than ever, but some of the newer mechanics dont do much for me; feels like they saw DOOM 2016's evolution of Quake's gameplay and thought they had to do something similar, ultimately feeling tacked on rather than really integrated into the gameplay flow. I also don't care much for the continued focus on stealth, I think Wolfenstein is a much better experience when you're firing on all cylinders. Still, I like your arsenal of weapons and when in the heat of the moment, Wolfie 2 is a lot of fun. There are key moments when the game threatens that fun with an onslaught of difficulty, but I was able to push through and come out satisfied. Overall I think I like New Order and Old Blood more, at least narratively and thematically, but New Colossus was an enjoyable affair and I wish MachineGames had continued down this road, rather than making the bizarre pivot Young Blood appears to be.
