Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Review

Nov 03, 2017

Wolfenstein: The New Order was my pick for Game of the Year in 2014. It did things other shooters weren’t doing by telling a meaningful, heartfelt story amid a violent and righteous rebellion against the Nazi Reich overtaking of the United States. Machine Games didn’t exactly play it safe before, but now after the success of The New Order, are able to take risks with Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus in excellent and fantastic ways. “A colossus is a person or thing of enormous size, importance, or ability.” In this, I’d say the game can be summed up as such. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is important, bold, and emphatic with its refusal to let hate be all there is in the world.
