Bullets, Bloodshed, Machines and an American Hero

Wolfenstein: The New Order was released on the 20th of May this year. The game had been in a 4 year development since 2010 by Machine Games and formally published by Bethesda as a first person shooter adventure game.  Wolfenstein has had a lot of various games released since the beginning in 1981 however each game has made itself capture a different story that grasp only a few key areas within the time line or between characters.

The Game begins in 1946; World War two has surrounded the battlefield. You take charge as Captain BJ. Blazkowicz is an American war hero. Your main desire is to kill all the Nazi’s and win the War. The game consists of ridiculous amounts of bullets, bloodshed and slaughter but don’t forget the mechanical robotic beasts that lurk around each corner with some being half animal and half machine.  Luckily enough BJ carries vast amount of guns and can even change to dual at any time however to upgrade your gun it is not as simple as other game where you gather experience or such but rather you have to find them.

It is easy to find supplies throughout the game but depend upon the difficulty which comes with a humour sayings and fantastically detailed pictures to fit which ever difficulty chosen from ‘Can I play, Daddy?’ as BJ is pictured with a bib and a baby dumpy to ‘Uber’ where BJ has darkened red eyes with splotches of blood splatters around his face as well as an awfully nerve shaking grin.

The Four Difficulties.

The story unfolds at a very nice pace as it goes from scene to scene with different ways to kill or find obstacles for the player. An amazing feature is the way in which the player can interact within the environment to find further clues and secrets beside Easter eggs hidden. Another thing that is very interesting about the game is by the in-depth features of critical detail even the tiniest sense of horror and gore lodged in the action through the scientist experiments on humans. Theirs even within the first few sequences a chance to make a choice which is not really common in first person shooters. (I will not spoil that for you.)

Sadly as the game goes on with its perfectly made next gen graphics, our main character goes into a broken state that takes him 14 years to cope with the broken self he was. A love interest is slowly made between BJ and the nurse Anya. As 14 years past it goes to 1960, the war is over and the Nazi’s have won. America surrendered due to the Atomic Bomb and everyone is captured. BJ is the only hope for survival for all.
