You find yourself heading towards a hallway literally filled with enemies. There are 2 heavily armored shotgun enemies, which are extremely hard to kill on UBER. Nothing a few grenades and well aimed shots can't handle. I'm leaning and shooting from cover when I realize I'm getting damaged A LOT from behind. Thinking an enemy flanked me I turn around only to see my team mate. Yes, your team mate's shots hurt you. Keep in mind you can't even shoot at your team mate so why they thought one sided friendly fire was a good idea is beyond me. I overlook it, pick up some health and continue to clear the hallway. I see an enemy laying on his back in a last stand position, aiming his pistol at me. I shoot him a bunch before I realize he's dead, but glitched. Okay, one glitch isn't too bad.. I continue, getting to the end of the hall triggers a dog to pop out and obliterate your health. You head down and there's about 4 more tough enemies. Finally I get past this extremely hard segment and head outside. No checkpoint, more tough guys. The enemies I kill start to glitch, I kill them and they just stand there. My team mate rushes to the car after I clear the enemies. I can't get in. So I go explore a bit, at full health. No enemies in site, I turn to check out a narrow corridor. Instantly get peppered by phantom bullets and die. Forced to replay the entire segment.
TL;DR: The game is fun but glitches and poor design ruin it.

Uncomplicated story, great character writing, evil badguys, cool weapons, solid gameplay, simple controls.
It makes you wonder why some developers struggle so much with this genre. Wolfenstein: The New Order makes it look easy.
better than i thought

Don't be fooled by low reviews. Decent reboot.

"Get in the turret!"
"Uh, where's the turret?"
later, "slide under the robot dog!"
ok, I'll just grab this health kit that's glowing and in my field of vision. NOPE. Took too long. Dead.
Ok, made it out of the intro sequence. On a beach. Not telling me what to do, guess I'll walk forward. EXPLOSION. Dead.
Guess I'll go to the right this time. Get stuck in ground, have to reload from checkpoint.
Ok, that was weird, I'll try left. Get stuck in ground AGAIN.
HOW IN THE HECK IS THIS GAME GETTING 8's AND 9's!? I'm not the best when it comes to shooters, but after more than 150 games rented from this site in the past 5 years I should absolutely be able to make it through the first 10 minutes of a game without dying every thirty seconds and being unable to progress because of a game-breaking bug. Unforgivable. Highly recommend you stay away.

Are there glitches? No,but there was this part of the game where I jumped into an obscure location on the map and got stuck.I fixed this by restarting the level.
Does it look good? yes.The cutscenes looked great,and the graphics look good.
Are the controls easy to manage? It's ok.The weapon selection wheel was really sensitive and would often select the wrong gun.
Is the game challenging? yes,but also too challenging.I was deep into the game at the hardest difficulty,but was forced to lower it at a certain point.
Is the story original? Yes.I do not know of any other game that features the nazis winning the war and conquered the world.
Are the character likable? No. Although the characters have faced trauma,there were times when I question their actions.The protagonist is void of any personality.Villains are your basic evil maniacs with no reason for their malice.
Is the gameplay good? no.Although you receive a good amount of arsenal,there really aren't any creative ways to dispose of people save stealth kills.You are forced to kill nazis,so if you wanted to play stealthy without killing anyone then your out of luck here.
Is the replay high? No.The replay is low at best as the only reasons you would want to go back is to search collectibles,and make a different crucial story decision.Replay can be moderate if your goal is to get all trophies.
Do I wish I had bought this game instead? No.
Worth the rent? Yes.
