The New Colossus is a fun and frantic FPS, even if it doesn't feel quite as fresh as The New Order did.

Vicious, affecting, witty, spaced-out, crude, inventive, morbid and for the most part, a success.

9.1 / 10.0
Dan Stapleton

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is a fantastic single-player shooter, but what really got me invested was the brilliantly written characters and the performances of its cast. BJ and his crew are full of spirit and personality, and General Engel is as memorable a nemesis as you're likely to find in games. Machine Games has once again turned the well-worn act of mowing down Nazis into something to get excited about.

Some of the most fearless and idiosyncratic storytelling ever seen in a video game, married to one of the most viciously entertaining shooters of the generation.
