We don’t usually dig the FPS thing, but Wolfenstein: The New Order has changed that. So, suffering a blue Monday? Give in to temptation, run wild, have a fine time on a vicious streak and hurt a procession of low-life Third Reich dickheads until they’re evil dust!
Game Revolution (May 20, 2014)
Wolfenstein: The New Order is a shining example of how to revitalize an old-school franchise. Its alternate history of World War II with the Nazis coming out on top is both far-fetched and over-the-top, but it keeps it grounded by being an extremely fun shooter, having a compelling story with well-developed characters, and a main protagonist who you’ll truly care about to the end. For some gamers, the $60 asking price for a shooter with no multiplayer might stop them at the door, but in the end they’ll be the ones missing out on one helluva ride!

In Short: The best Wolfenstein game ever made and one of the best single-player shooters for years, with a brave attempt to tackle serious issues and still have fun at the same time.

Pros: Superb gunplay mixed with largely optional, but extremely rewarding, stealth mechanics and non-linear set pieces. Great variety in locations and a daring, if schizophrenic, storytelling style.

Cons: As understandable as it may be the story pulls its punches when it comes to the greatest horrors of the Nazi regime. The characters are all very thinly written.

Er zitten een paar fantastische schrijvers bij MachineGames die van B.J., zijn mede-verzetsstrijders en hun geflipte vijanden zulke boeiende characters gemaakt hebben, dat Wolfenstein: The New Order verrassend leuk blijft. Het verhaal, plus een paar slimme trucjes op het gebied van gameplay, tillen deze vrij simpele, last-gen-achtige shooter zonder multiplayer naar het niveau 'fucking stoer, moet spelen'.
Giant Bomb (May 21, 2014)
Giving credit where credit's due, Wolfenstein: The New Order is a great deal more ambitious than you would ever expect yet another Wolfenstein reboot to be. This is a game that could have easily just slapped another quick-and-dirty Nazi invasion plot together and leaned entirely on the shooting of things to get by. Instead, MachineGames has obviously gone to great lengths to turn The New Order into something more than that. It tries to create stakes that go beyond the basic scope of "kill those bad guys because they're bad," and even when it fails to completely take advantage of those stakes, there's still enough excitement, enough intrigue, enough humanity in its story to keep you interested. Even if its ideas only scratch the surface of something deeper, Wolfenstein: The New Order still delivers an experience well worth your time.

Wolfenstein: The New Order has a chance to be one of the best first-person shooters of the year. It’s a title that is almost like its hero Blazkowicz – coming from an era of old and slowly adapting into the current times, but keeping enough of the old to distinguish itself from the wave of all the similar looking military shooters that the genre is plagued with, while focusing on bringing an exciting and lengthy campaign. If you’re looking for great gunplay, an amazing visualised alternative Nazi ruled 1960s with a surprisingly good and appealing plot, and of course, want to shoot Nazis in the way of the old school, then Wolfenstein: The New Order is just what the doctor ordered.

Wolfenstein : The New Order, c'est donc un FPS old-school pur jus bien efficace, qui s'offre quelques petites nuances et une ambiance s'appuyant sur des gros clichés parfaitement assumés et maîtrisés. Ça ne va pas changer votre vie ni révolutionner le jeu vidéo, mais vous passerez assurément 15 bonnes heures en sa compagnie, ce qui est plutôt pas mal pour un shooter purement solo.
Destructoid (May 19, 2014)
In many ways, Wolfenstein: The New Order is "First-Person Shooters: The Game," but it gets most of the important details right. It's still weird to me seeing Wolf games developed over and over by new devs, but MachineGames did a great job adapting the franchise in its own way. With a few tweaks, the next iteration could be something truly special.
Cheat Code Central (May 20, 2014)
Overall, Wolfenstein: The New Order isn’t exactly the best FPS on the market. Its mechanics are shallow, its gunplay is simple, and its story is something out of World War II obsessive’s wet dream. However, the things it gets right it does really well. The stealth is handled perfectly, the inventory and character progression are really well done, and the combination of regenerating health and pickups is actually something I wouldn’t mind seeing in future shooters. Overall, Wolfenstein: The New Order isn’t a must own title, but if you need an FPS to hold you over until Call of Duty: House of Cards Starring Kevin Spacey Edition, you could do a lot worse.
Games TM (2014)
Ignore the discordance within its narrative and get your way past the incredibly dull opening stretch: Wolfenstein is a brawny, gratifying shooter experience – the likes of which you probably haven’t played in some time. Consider it a history lesson.
PlayFrance (May 30, 2014)
Lorgnant sans complexe sur des séries B qui voient les Nazis comme l’expression universelle et intemporelle du mal absolu, ce Wolfenstein : The New Order offre un honnête défouloir pour combler cette phase d’attente entre deux titres plus aguicheurs. Jouable uniquement en solitaire et doté d’une réalisation surtout optimisée pour l’ancienne génération de machines, le FPS de Machine Games peut au moins se vanter de proposer deux façons de jouer, l’une rentre-dedans et l’autre plus discrète, à défaut d’offrir de régulières décharges d’adrénaline. Comme certains fruits et légumes à consommer quand c’est la saison, Wolfenstein est à jouer maintenant, avant que de meilleurs titres ne viennent siéger sur PlayStation 4.

Avec un grand nom, on a de grandes responsabilités, comme dirait un mec en collants que je connais bien. Ainsi, Blazkowicz, notre héros, monte au front de fort belle manière, sans révolutionner les codes pour autant, mais en montrant qu'à partir du moment où l'on fait un boulot carré, le résultat est là. Bien entendu, on peut rechigner sur certains aspects comme l'absence de multi, l'I.A à la ramasse, une réalisation efficace mais qui ne fait pas d'étincelles, ou encore le manque de subtilité global du titre, mais ce serait franchement bouder son plaisir tant les gunfights sont kiffants, tant l'atmosphère globale est prenante et tant les clichés proposés dans l'histoire nous parlent. Alors, si vous aimez tâter de l'artillerie lourde pour vous détendre après une bonne journée de boulot, vous avez trouvé votre bonheur, ou votre sauveur, c'est au choix !

Wolfenstein: The New Order macht viele Dinge richtig: Es konzentriert sich mit einer umfangreichen Kampagne sowie cineastischen Videosequenzen bewusst auf das Einzelspieler-Erlebnis und verhilft dem Shooter der alten Schule zu einem kleinen Comeback - auch wenn das manuelle Aufsammeln gewaltig nervt. Es gibt einige Längen und öde Suchaufgaben, aber die abwechslungsreichen Schauplätze mit ihrem sehenswerten Art- und Gegnerdesign halten bei der Stange. Die Technik der id-Engine sorgt im Detail allerdings nicht für Begeisterung und ein übler Checkpunkte-Bug hat den Spielspaß merklich gedämpft. Schön ist, dass ich oft die Wahl zwischen dem Schleich- oder Actionweg habe und ich durch meine Vorgehensweise die Verbesserungen in eine Richtung lenken kann.

In short bursts, it's everything you'd assume it would be, and if your expectations don't go any further than that you won't be disappointed. Ignore the (awful) narrative, shoot some fools and enjoy.

As a total package, though, Wolfenstein continually feels disjointed and doesn't know exactly what it wants to be - the overall experience is jarring.
Joystiq (May 20, 2014)
The greatest problem in Wolfenstein: The New Order, then, is a jarring inconsistency of tone and cohesion. The quiet moments in your Berlin hovel feel like they belong in a more contemplative game, yet each new mission dumps you into the next sewer or train with little substance or explanation. It's almost as if there's a tug of war going between the big dumb shooter and the attempt to be subversive, with the result being a game that's not really slick enough to be an action classic, and not dramatic enough to draw you in.
The Video Game Critic (Sep 13, 2014)
Wolfenstein: The New Order is a competent game but after a while I got the sinking feeling I was playing every first-person shooter I've ever played in my entire life.
Diehard GameFan (May 28, 2014)
The New Order has come out of nowhere and done an amazing job of revitalizing a moribund franchise. I very much hope a sequel is in the works. Go get it if you have any love at all for old school FPS games.
