Wolfenstein: Youngblood Reviews Summary

Summary: 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.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is the first modern co-op Wolfenstein adventure. Nineteen years after the events of Wolfenstein II, BJ Blazckowicz has disappeared after a mission into Nazi-occupied Paris. Now, after years of training from their battle-hardened father, BJ’s twin daughters, Jess and Soph Blazkowicz, are forced into action. Team up with a friend or play alone. Level up, explore, and complete missions to unlock new abilities, weapons, gadgets, cosmetics, and more to complement your playstyle and customize your appearance. Wolfenstein: Youngblood features the most open-ended Wolfenstein experience to date. From a new base of operations located deep in the heart of the Paris catacombs, plan how and when to attack and dismantle the Nazi regime.

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

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.

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.
