The success the previous games had shows that Machine Games has got everything under control. More emphasis is now on the story and characters. Yet, Wolfenstein II also goes even more over the top than its predecessors, with sharp and crude jokes, but without being offensive.
The voice acting and the script are the biggest force Wolfenstein II has to offer. Running and shooting is a more important part of the journey and fits well within the game both thematically and narratively. There is a lot of diversity in enemies and mechanics per level, with the graphics and levels being well-designed and great in detail.
Starting off in a wheelchair is brave and was pulled off perfectly, with the game feeling very tacky and rigid. When you come back to your feet again, as William “B.J.” Blazkowicz, you feel a sense of freedom and speed come back. It all makes sure that this game offers you a little bit of variety in a progressive story – not to mention how emotional the story gets.
All in all, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, has offered gamers more of what they were hoping to receive and thus allows this game to scale the top 5 of Game of the Year list. We can’t wait to see a new Wolfenstein appear on the scene, possibly in 2020. Great games only come around in scarce cycles.
