Hello everyone… with my randomness going for Wolfenstein… lets see how it did imo
So I will break this review into a few parts to get my point across. Scoring from 1-5, 5 being Epic 1 Being Horrible.
- Randomness (Yes… Randomness)
Ok lets be real its a first person shooter… The game had its great points but overall it felt real basic imo for a first person shooter. You had moments in the game where it felt crazy and overwhelming so you had to run around with the timing… but overall it felt basic. The guns had a nice kick to it at times but the whole dual wielding 2 assault rifles didnt really get to me… felt so “fake” Another part that I found a bit off yet highly annoying was the items. SO many things to pick up off the floor at times having to look down and throwing me off. Didn’t feel all that great. Felt like I was cleaning a room everytime I cleared it out and needed some ammo.. a real chore to get ammo and gear.
The story is something I can deal with, it did pretty decent and you even get yourself a little rival at some point but it had a classic feel to it. The story was a bit basic but still with a twist going back in time and having it that the Nazi’s took over the world and how it would be as far as them in control. It was amusing in one scene where you make a game changing decision and it somewhat effects how the story goes in some occasions in the game but in all honesty the games story wasn’t bad it had its ups and downs, in the beginning it takes a bit to actually get into it but once the story actually kicks in… you will start feeling like you need to keep going to see what happens next.
The game look great but a bit shotty at the same time. I felt they could have done better with the graphics overall to get the game going. The actual storyline was tied in perfectly imo. As far as the shooting it just seem to get things going but not all that great…. It was pretty much put together in some randomness that we have called Wolfenstein… i do give them credit for dropping a little easter egg with the old wolfenstein gameplay. That really got things on an interesting level the moment your fighting through some 8 bit dungeon =O
Nothing really blew my socks off with this game. I mean I knew what to expect on every corner when it came to the game… a basic shooter… with random nazi’s and some crazy look robots to take out but really nothing out of the ordinary. To me this was a pretty basic game. Is it worth the 59.99? Maybe if your a fan of the series. I love Wolfenstein and didn’t mind spending the cash on it but for a casual gamer I don’t think this qualifies as the 59.99 game. The story delivered yet the gameplay didn’t.
Conclusion: Meh? aka 3
So overall the game lacked in the area for gameplay. Story wise it was pretty decent yet not quite. As far as presentation I honestly don’t kno where to go with it, looked great and played great yet felt obscenely basic. Wish they could have done more and hopefully we see something new from them on the line of this game with a better presentation…
