Wolfenstein: Youngblood isn’t bad, but it’s not amazing either. It’s a serviceable Wolfenstein entry with some great standout parts—like the gunplay—but also has odd coop mechanics that detract from the gameplay. The difficulty feels unbalanced: you start out super weak and enemies are super bullet spongy. This eases over time as you gain levels and purchase gun upgrades, but it’s a slow grind.

Overall, Youngblood is a welcome reinvention of the series, but lacks the personality of what makes a Wolfenstein game. Microtransactions aren't as bad they're made out, but it is still understandably going to impact each person differently. The extensive replay incentive and a charming, albeit short, story are appreciated. If you are a Wolfenstein enthusiast, this game definitely deserves at least one playthrough— just make sure you won't have any interruptions during your sessions.

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

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.

Youngblood is a meat-and-potatoes first-person shooter where all the systems work well, the enemies provide a brutal challenge, and a friend can come along with you through the whole thing. It seems like it was designed as a relatively inexpensive crowd-pleaser of an FPS, and I will admit that I was very entertained.

The new Wolfensteins have always encouraged multiple playstyles, but Youngblood is the first time they've actually felt viable.

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.

Maybe I just expected too much, but I find myself missing the careful balance of story and gameplay that The New Order had down pat. Youngblood makes plenty of strides forward for this series, but it also takes some steps backward that end up hurting the overall package.

A non-linear based campaign without a defined rhythm, a progression system taken from the RPG genre that does not adapt well to the personality of the saga, and a set of skins and payment methods that are, unfortunately, a great burden that the outstanding gunplay and the new cooperative mode can hardly drag.

Youngblood feels like Wolfenstein got drunk and ended up at the wrong party. It's still able to pull off some of the same old tricks, but it feels wildly out of place alongside RPG-style levelling from Destiny or The Division. The next entry needs to go back to the previous formula, let me shoot my way through hordes of Nazi's and spin a good yarn.  Go home Wolfenstein, you're drunk.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood falls a step behind previous games... Which doesn't mean is bad at all. The formula works as fine as ever, and there are some very welcome changes. You can kill nazis with a friend, too, which means this game freaking rules.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood feels like a short co-op experience stretched out over a barebones RPG skeleton. It doesn’t feel comfortable in its own skin. It’s too thin in some parts while being bloated and lumpy in others. Whatever it is, I don’t really want to touch it. Ultimately, it’s just a disappointing sidestep in an otherwise fantastic franchise.

MachineGames continues to raise the overall level of the Wolfenstein franchise, although it could have taken more advantage of the cooperative and there is excessive grinding.

Buy it if you have an ideal co-op partner, want a simpler co-op alternative to MMO-like shooters, or just really, really like newer Wolfenstein games. Otherwise, proceed with caution.
