You can blow a Nazi to pieces among some lovingly-designed sixties furnishings and probably should.

Wolfenstein: The New Order's emphasis on storytelling and characters make it a shooter worth playing.

Wolfenstein: The New Order has all sorts of war stories it wants to share with you and it knows how it wants you to feel, but it's not convincing. Its stories are more sensational than poignant. It's a decent shooter with a good few impressive moments, but it can be buggy and it doesn't offer much you can't find elsewhere, with little to tempt you back when it's over. Where it most tries to stand out, in its narrative and setting, it often comes off as juvenile. Overall, it's built on an impressive world but it doesn't do enough with it, and as a result it's curious, but hardly compelling.

The best Wolfenstein game ever made and one of the best single-player shooters for years, with a brave attempt to tackle serious issues and still have fun at the same time.

An over-the-top shooter with fun action, memorable set-piece moments, and decent characters, Wolfenstein: The New Order successfully transforms an old-school game into a modern experience.

A more well-rounded outing than the last Wolfenstein game, but its more comfortable employing tried-and-true gameplay conventions than striving for innovation

In the Nazi-dominated alternate history of 1960, it takes more than big guns to topple this new regime.

The New Order's got all the workings of a classic shooter. But in their trip back to the well, Machine Games has brought all of its talents to bear. The New Order is held together, even rocketed beyond the basic sum of its smart levels and effective mechanics by its characters. That humanity takes what would be a good shooter and makes it something truly memorable.

A solid, satisfying run-and-gun first-person shooter that elevates iconic hero B.J. Blazkowicz from glorified holster to actual human being.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is smarter than a game called Wolfenstein probably has any right to be, yet it still manages to capture the hyperviolent spirit of its predecessors.
