Stellar voice work rubs shoulders with a superb score and suitably loud guns that sound every bit as lethal as they should. Wolfenstein is a beautiful blitzkrieg on the ears.
Brilliantly cinematic and stylish, The New Order encapsulates its twisted time period perfectly, mixing the familiar with the eerily alien.
A joy from start to finish, MachineGames' past Starbreeze pedigree shines through in its tight and robust gunplay. There are kinks, like dodgy enemy AI and a slightly fiddly radial weapon menu, but everything else is nigh-on perfect.
As a solely single-player proposition, Wolfenstein offers plenty of value with a lengthy campaign that's largely well-paced and tightly scripted. Collectibles, two timelines and a new game+ encourage a second playthrough, and we'd heartily recommend playing it twice.
Casually take a cursory look through Wolfenstein's list and you'd be forgiven for thinking it's rubbish. But as each perk is linked to a challenge in-game, it's a better list than its appearance would have you believe. Granted, there's are possibly a few too many collectibles, yet this is still a decent enough list.
