Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is amazing! - reviews round-up

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is a special game in FPS genre. It focuses on telling a story and offering the best shooting mechanic possible. It's going live tomorrow and now we have first reviews.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus seems to be another masterpiece for fans of oldschool shooters. The developer chose the singleplayer campaign and did not bothered with online modes. It's better to focus on one mode and make it perfect than throw in an additional mode, because it's shooter and it should have MP. Well, at least that's what they said.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus' main course is the story, the atmosphere and the shooting mechanic. The first reviews confirm that everything was done properly, although there are not many of them. The quality of the predecessor is still high, although this time the developer knew what works and they supposedly delivered an almost perfect game.

I had high expectations going into Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, but MachineGames managed to outdo them in every way imaginable. They’ve created one of the most ridiculous video games ever made, and one that is never afraid to be clear about its message of equality & justice. While it’s easy to focus on the over-the-top story beats and memorable scenes, The New Colossus is carried by an incredible amount of heart from start to finish.

And that’s the strength of this sequel. It balances a steady stream of suffering and hurt with exuberant humanity. It deals with our darkest impulses and our best, and plays them both up to a ridiculous degree. There’s nothing subtle aboutWolfenstein 2, but it’s all affecting in a way that makes the game feel special and coherent. There are moments in the game that made my heart swell, while others were so grisly I had to look away.

We’ve already seen that Machine Games can craft a great playing shooter, but with Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus they’ve also got a more interesting and varied story to tell this time around.

The ratings go as follows:

  • PlayStation Lifestyle 95/100
  • DualShockers 9,5/100
  • Gadgets 360 90/100
  • USgamer 90/100
  • GamesBeat 90/100
  • Polygon 90/100
  • Xbox Achievments 88/100
  • CGMagazine 85/100
  • IGN Italy 85/100
  • Hardcore Gamer 80/100
  • Spaziogames 80/100
  • Game Revolution 80/100
  • Attack of the Fanboy 80/100

Of course it's best to experience on your own if Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is really THAT good (though it sure is). An occasion for that will be tomorrow, when it appear in stores worldwide. Let's home that monetization of our hobby will not destroy the passion some of developers still have.
