- Â If you ever see any screenshots for this game you will notice the fantastic graphical capabilities Wolfenstein: TNO has with it being powered by ID Tech 5(Rage, The Evil Within). Finally John Carmackâ€™s engine is finally put to good use in the dawn of the next gen.
- Thankfully there is no two weapon system to be found at all in Wolfenstein: TNO letting you carry a maximum of 6-8 Weapons (Excluding Dual Wielding Weapons). Take that Halo.
- There is a decent amount of character depth to be found not only in our main character but also in the side characters. You actually want to see the heroâ€™s conquer the third Reich for the hope of humanity.
- The campaign is divided up into 16 chapters with the Resistance Hideout serving as a safe haven till the next assignment. Side objectives are also available at the hideout along with interacting with the resistance members.
- Nice few references to Wolfenstein 3D Scattered throughout the game Such as golden treasures for you to collect in levels and eating dinners or dog food heals you for a small bit.
- Stealth is optional to use to take out a room ofÂ soldiers.Just don’t approach a mech from behind he will crush you.
- Enemy’sÂ come in quite aÂ varietyÂ ranging from Rocket Soldiers, Armour Plated Frankenstein Monsters and Metal Covered Dogs.
- Â Most of the levels take place indoors rather than in outside environments. Even though Rage was a disappointment it at least let you explore the outside desert, thatâ€™s one of the benefits ID Tech 5 has.
- The story takes itself a bit too seriously at times even becoming borderline dark. Not to get into spoilers but something very unpleasant happens to one of your squad mates early on in the game.
- Death is very easy to come by even when your health andÂ armourÂ is high
In conclusion can I recommend Wolfenstein: TNO to anyone? Well if you have a nostalgic feeling for the original I would say go for it but if youâ€™re a COD Fanboy than this game is not for you since it does have a couple of stealth missions here and there. As for me, I may have been late to the party but at least Iâ€™m happy with what I got. Now Iâ€™m really looking forward to The Evil Within to see how the graphics will pan out. Machine Games you have done the impossible, you have made and old franchise relevant again.
