    Wolfenstein: The New Order has been created as if God himself sent his divine blessing down on MachineGames and Bethesda Softworks. (Developer and Publisher) Although you may be to busy sending Nazi scum to the afterlife in a hail of bullets and war! This game is a beautiful masterpiece. The attention to detail is almost unrivaled in most fps shooters.

    In the 22 years since Wolfenstein 3-D pioneered the First person shooter, the series has had some ups and downs. Coming with the latest reboot Wolfenstein: The New World Order is by far the best story driven and cleverly designed iteration to date. In this new timeline, the Nazis ultimately won WWII and seize control of much of the world. So this will not be your typical WWII shooter. Instead you will fighting robots, maybe get entangled in future Nazi space program, or fight a giant robot dog. Yes, i did say a giant robot dog.

    Long time protagonist B.J. Blazkowicz returns! This time more revamped than ever. Instead of being a typical gun toting meat head, he has a pretty surprising amount of depth to him. He not only shows ruthless combat skills but also love, patriotism, and bravery. This put together with great voice acting and fantastic writing allows for The New Order to be very engaging.

    Now i do commend MachineGames for taking a more realistic approach on how we dealt with the nazis. Instead of focusing so much on the paranormal occult as in previous installments. I also give them major props for exploring actual Nazi war crimes such as; forced labor camps and the horrific treatment of the sick and mentally unstable.

    Wolfenstein: The New Order doesn't quite live up to the level of the story and detail of the game design in the aspects of an actual shooter. Although its fun to play i wish its game-play more evenly met its presentation. The opening sequence is a bit tedious due to it takes forever to actually get a damn gun! But once you do you will find a very responsive shooter that runs fluidly and plays even better. Its even complimented by a unique and well thought out skill tree. Skills are not unlocked by xp but you unlock them by successfully doing things in game. (certain number of head-shots or kills with grenades) Not much unlike Farcry 3's skill tree layout. Another con, and probably the most significant is the lack of a multi-player, which in today's fps world is a no no.

    Although Wolfenstein: New World Order isn't changing the game as far as First Person Shooters. Its story and production value is by far very commendable. As a fan of the franchise it was definitely nice that it felt more grounded and realistic. Even if the subject matter is less than realistic. Overall ill give the game a 8.0 for a solid shooter with production value and story on the level of a masterpiece. Receiving the 8.0 due to a lack of a multi-player.
