Review Summary

FairCritic Consensus

Wolfenstein: Youngblood takes a gamble with the series' excellent gun play by adding open-world elements and an RPG system, unfortunately this gamble doesn't pay off, although the new co-op system is a welcome addition.

Great Co-op Gameplay

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a great co-op experience, building on the fantastic gun play seen in Two.

Lacklustre RPG Mechanics

A lacklustre RPG system gets in the way of the story and gameplay.

Repetitive Side-quests

Youngblood's open world is filled with repetitive, filler content.

Critic Reviews for Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Youngblood is aggressively okay, but doesn't come close to recapturing the joy of its predecessor.

Two players, two developers, but half the story: this spin-off isn't firing on all cylinders, but the combat is still hugely satisfying.

Youngblood's gorgeous, terrible world is worth exploring, despite a slight narrative and oppressively boring progression systems.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a spin-off with big ambitions let down by lacklustre execution.

A flawed but enjoyable co-op spin-off that's unfocused and scrappy but still manages to find lots of entertainingly imaginative ways to kill Nazis.

This side chapter provides a steady dollop of Nazi-massacring fun, especially if you have a pal along for the ride

The Blazkowicz sisters steal the show in a bite-sized cooperative spin-off FPS that packs a hell of a punch, further invigorating the franchise.

Intentions to do something different are appreciated, but the way these additions sabotage the previously pristine core mechanics will only make your blood boil instead.
