Wolfenstein: The New Order First Impression

I am a huge Wolfenstein fan. My first Wolfenstein game was Return to Casltle Wolfenstein. After I played that game I went back and played all of the other games and fell in love with the series. Wolfenstein is probably my all time favorite fps game or it’s right behind Turok and Duke Nukem.

So how does this reboot of the series compare to the legendary Wolfenstein games of yesteryear? It’s pretty fucking fantastic right now. The game starts off with your average turret section that has you going up against Nazi planes that are trying to shoot you out of the sky.

Wolfenstein-The-New-Order 1Wolfenstein: The New Order is a throwback to old school shooters mixed with all the new mechanics that you would see in a fps today and they work perfectly together. You can aim down the sites or just pull the trigger and start blasting away at enemies in front you.

What I like most about this game are the decisions that are presented to you early on in the game. Will you go in guns blazing or try and assassinate every enemy in the room? Are you going in there dual wielding pistols? How about machine guns? What if you just want to blow shit up? You can do all of that in this game and it doesn’t punish you for choosing one play style over another.

I’ve mixed in some of everything and so far it all works pretty great. The keyboard and mouse controls are amazingly smooth and there have been some pretty intense moments in my first two hours of gameplay.

I was climbing up a building not to long ago while dodging debris and bullets. I almost got killed by a mechanical dog that stopped to play fetch with a grenade before it blew up and I saw my cover get shot to shreds while I was sitting there trying to think my next move.

Wolfenstein is an intense fps that’s thrown everything at me from the get go and I love that about the game. The story right now is pretty nonexistent, but I’m expecting it to pick up a little after I get out of what I can only assume is the prologue of the game.

Wolfenstein-The-New-Order_1I’ve unlocked quite a few perks so far. They’re mostly in the assault skill tree because I love dual wielding machine guns so much. Each perk has a different requirement for you to accomplish before they will unlock. You’ll have to get 50 headshots or kill a set amount of enemies from behind cover with a specific weapon before you’ll get your reward.

The rewards range from being able to reload both of your guns at the same time to getting bigger ammo clips for you to go on a shooting rampage with.

I’m really looking forward to trying to get all of the perks, but I have a feeling that it might take more than one playthrough for that to happen.

I’m really early in the game right now, but I love it. It’s intense and not to mention beautiful. I’m running it fully maxed out on my rig and I can assure that the minimum requirements for this game don’t require you to have an I7 processor, but you will need at least a high end I5 with a good graphics card to get a good experience while you’re gaming.

I love the way the blood justs splashes all over the place when I shoot an enemy in the head or blow them up with a grenade. I haven’t played a good WWII shooter in years so it’s good to experience all of the weapons and not to mention the setting of the world. Everything is beautiful and filled with details.

I have noticed some bugs that could be worked out, but it’s nothing major. As far as day one releases go this game is great. It doesn’t have the problems that most games have when they release. Batman and Rome II come to mind.

I can’t wait to jump back into Wolfenstein. Hopefully I’ll have my review of this game up by Friday. I like to take my time and do everything there is to do in a game before I write my review and I plan on doing that for this game.
