Wolfenstein: The New Order

released on May 20, 2014

Wolfenstein: The New Order is an action-adventure shooter game played from a first-person perspective. It is the semi-sequel to 2009's Wolfenstein, however utilizes very little from the game and drops any direct references to veil or supernatural.

To progress through the story, the player battle enemies throughout levels. The game utilizes a health system in which players' health is divided into separate sections that regenerate; if an entire section is lost, the player must use a health pack to replenish the missing health. In combat, a cover system can be used as assistance against enemies. The player have the ability to lean around, over, and under cover, which can be used as a tactical advantage during shootouts and stealth levels. The game gives the player a wide variety of weapon options—they can be found on the ground, retrieved from dead enemies, or removed from their stationary position and carried around.

this game is an amazing shooter, and one hell of a way to reboot an older franchise. there are only one or two minor complaints compared to the overall fantastic story, characters, combat, set pieces, and soundtrack that combine to make an incredible fps.

Before I started this game I thought Duke Nuke 'em and Wolfenstein were the same thing.
Not a fan of FPS generally, but loved the look and story.

The gameplay just blows my load so hard bro. I just don't like it. The first 7 hours were fine, but never really getting me into that FPS zone. I know this game allows you to just press forward guns blazing because you can duel wield guns for that exact purpose, but it just doesn't feel that satisfying to me. The enemies also shred the FUCK out of you so most of the time I was just hiding behind cover picking off enemies with guns that didn't feel good to precision aim with. Most of the enemies are also just fucking bullet sponges. The stealth segments also just feel so unneeded. All of it was fine until the end where it just breaks open those cracks and I couldn't take it anymore.
Also for some reason pick-ups wouldn't respawn sometimes if I died and had to go back to a checkpoint. No idea if it was a glitch or on purpose, but thats fucked up if the game just gets harder for dying.
My friend told me that J is supposed to be Jimi Hendrix but his family didn't allow him to be used, and I wouldn't want him used like he was either.
The cinematography was good though.
