Total Action FPS with a interesting story

Although I have played Wolfenstein games before, I always thought they were below some of the better FPS out there.. I rented this on the redbox since I was bored and the games can be so scarce on Gamefly... Still waiting for this and Watch dogs so I can complete Wolfenstein. From what I did play the story is good and interesting, graphics are nice, gameplay is solid.. If you want a challenge and constant brutal action this games for you.

I normally will disagree with the industry reviews (IGN, etc). However, with this title, IGN is dead on. It has weird ties to what "a Wolfenstein game" should be to a fault. These include:

-button presses to pick things up. There's seriously stuff everywhere, and you really won't find a situation where picking it up will hurt you or even hinder your gameplay experience.

-weird dual-wielding. The recoil, accuracy, etc., involved in the dual wielding are stupid. This should be a fun part of the gameplay, but it's become a thing I avoid doing (I'm on a harder difficulty) because it's only useful with the shotguns, and maybe not even then.

If you set those things aside, though, the game is fun. It has a pseudo-level-up system based on how you play, and it has a really cool art style. It also manages to be dark and twisted, and adult in a way that isn't only blood and gore and whatnot. It makes the normally undefined Blaskowitz into a likeable, reasonably deep character who loves and who feels real emotions, and who is well-acted.

The bottom line here is I really like this game more than I was anticipating, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to play a good story-mode-shooter.

this game is not what i expected, its a lot funnier then it seems. it just has something that a lot of the fps coming out today have, which is FUN. its not that realistic seeing as you get stabbed multiple times during some cutscenes and you get right back up like nothing is wrong. but i think thats what makes it such an exciting game. all the fps that come out today try to be too realistic and give you that wannabe simulation feeling. where this game just focuses on full out carnage against the NAZIs. while you are playing you will notice that you do not need to aim down sight while making your play through. its an option, but is definitely not required in this game. but beware this game is quite hard. your health barely regenerates and they are always hordes of Nazis and robots(that are impossible to kill) coming at you. sometimes going guns blazing isn't always the best way and you will get a little frustrated. but all in all this game is AMAZING :D
