How long has it been since the Nazis went out of style? I can’t even remember the last time I run-and-gunned my way through the Third Reich. Call of Duty doesn’t play by those rules anymore, but Wolfenstein without Nazis is near sacrilege.
If that’s you’re thing, then you will be in for a lot of Nazi shooting if you pick up Wolfenstein: The New Order. Even if they are Nazis from an alternate history, they are still Nazis, just even more dangerous. My fifteen minute demo scaled me up a vertical wall, through a church, and into a raging battle, each of which had a healthy supple of enemy soldiers to kill.
Take a few shots, recover behind a wall, take a few shoots, recover behind a wall. Maybe throw a grenade good measure, but if you are an avid player of FPS games, then you know the drill.
Wolfenstein: The New Order was my first time getting a hold of the DualShock 4 and PlayStation 4 console, and if this is the future of gaming, then we will obviously be stuck in the present for quite some time. Nothing about this seemed impossible on modern consoles, but most likely because it has to compensate for the current generation builds.
It’s not the best first impression, regardless. Maybe I’ll stumble on something else to convince me otherwise on the TGS floor.
Wolfenstein: The New Order will be released for the PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Playstation 4 in 2014.
