The Terror-Billy takes a backseat to the Terror Twins as they carry the Blazkowicz name into the 80s with the same fury to kill all Nazis, just like their daddy. Wolfenstein: Youngblood comes from the joint efforts of Machine Games and Arkane Studios, blending amazing gunplay with detailed locations, but the game on the whole feels like an experiment and less story-driven as the series is known for. This is a standalone entry that ties into the former and upcoming mainline games that tries many new things, and not all elements are as well executed as others, but manages to be a fun time overall. The best thing Wolfenstein: Youngblood does, is give a glimpse at where the series is heading, and it’s so very exciting.
“What’s old is new again.” Wolfenstein: The Old Blood comes out not even a full year removed from the fantastic and absolutely surprising Wolfenstein: The New Order, and MachineGames has cranked out a standalone prequel. It is a game that requires no prior knowledge of the events of The New Order to enjoy and get accustomed how it plays. While it didn’t give the same impression that The New Order left me with, but The Old Blood is still an incredibly solid shooter with interesting events making it a worthwhile, albeit short playthrough. It is good to return to Castle Wolfenstein.
The first-person shooter that started it all, Wolfenstein, returns. But this old dog has learned new tricks. Unique twists and turns with a decidedly old-school mentality with new-school technology proves to be intriguing and challenging task that pays off in spades. In a “What if” scenario, Nazi Germany has won World War II in 1946. What exactly would that change? Bethesda Softworks and MachineGames answers that question with a resounding: everything.
