    It’s a game about killing Nazis, and reveling in that violence. It’s part righteous fury, part joy in the face of madness, and part dope-ass first-person shooter. To put it simply, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a lot.

    Even and without the absence of a multiplayer mode, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a great FPS that offers a fantastic, deep and really well told story. If you love the genre you should not miss it.

    The New Colossus is a perfectly crafted FPS experience. It can stop your breath, slap your face, make you laugh and inject adrenaline. All of these within a single hour of gameplay. It’s a game built on emotions.

    “Inglourious Basterds meets Fast and Furious” – a multicultural group of irreverent, colorful characters on a globetrotting quest to ruin Hitler’s day, week and life in a fantastic revenge fantasy setting. Brutal, absurd, clever, insightful and touching, The New Colossus is a rollicking adventure that has reset the bar for what first person shooters can, and should, be.

    Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus follows up on its predecessor with a bang. With a dynamic protagonist and amazing characters, this is an entry in the foundation of what modern shooters, if not narrative games in general, can be. The mechanics are as stellar as the guns are loud, and it'll leave the player itching for more even when it's over.

    Improving on The New Order while raising the stakes at the same time may seem like a daunting task, but Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus manages to do exactly that.

    Wolfenstein II The New Colossus is a good FPS game and a good followup that will make you laugh and kill a lot of nazis... exactly what we expected, but it still has some flaws, like its mediocre level-design and maps.

When games have micro transactions and people don't like it, the game gets rated a 1.0 even though it often is a very good game in the mix and would deserve a decent rating. Just don't rate the game if you only want to do a protest vote. Also Wolfenstein II is a wonderful game that does what it promises with a very good and over the top story line and character build.

I also enjoyed the recent Doom and I'm not a noob when it comes to FPS (played them since the OG Wolfenstein). But The New Colossus is just...bad. And mostly because of the difficulty developers have set. I had to go to Reddit and read whether there was something wrong with the game (or myself) because I was simply dying every 3min. In some scenes it was happening over a dozen times before I had to simply switch it to the lowest difficulty. It shouldn't be so hard! It should be fun to kill the bloody nazis and not a chore.. Something the devs could've fixed with a patch was the feedback of you being shot. You just don't get that you're about to die until it's too late. The upgrade system in the game is miserable and the three abilities you're given are hardly necessary and only have to be used because of the level design. Speaking of which...It's a classic Bethesda world which I don't particularly like, but it's a matter of taste I guess. Anyway. I had to put the game on hold because I simple wasn't enjoying it and finished it almost a month after just to get rid of it. The amount of positive emotions I got from the previous game I played - Horizon Zero Dawn - was incomparable. Needless to say I'm not buying any of the DLCs Expand
