finally a fps shooter campaign worth playing....

story - 9
graphics - 10
sound quality - 9

only thing bad about this game is no multiplayer, but you can see the extra time, effort and polish displayed throughout the game because of no multiplayer.

Also noticed it takes somes elements from dishonored slide/stealth, guess that makes sense since they own that dishonored IP.

I ordered this game thinking it would be kinda ugly linear generic story, (let me tell you what, the first hour of this game will set you straight real fast.)

stop reading this and go push the rent button!!!!

BEST RETAIL GAME THIS YEAR SO FAR

A FPS that is finally worth playing. Fun game play with multiple ways to beat levels. You can play it like a run of mill FPS crouch behind cover shoot crouch shoot. You can go ABSOLUTELY CRAZY and dual wield any type of gun spray and pray my friends. You can be an explosive expertise. Then there is my personal favorite the stealth. Crouch around,lean around corners. and throw knives across the room or doing awesome take down kills. All 4 with their own skill trees that give you perks by completing challenges (real simple stuff like to get more throwing knives you kill people with throwing knives while stealthed super easy).

Has amazing music every time the music the music would pick up it makes you feel exactly how you should. Probably the 2nd best modern music soundtrack right behind MGR:Revengeance (By modern music I mean it's not like Dark Souls or Skyrim music it's mainly heavy rock with awesome guitars.)

The story is what really makes it stick. I haven't played a game in years that I genuinely hated the antagonist. As soon as the antagonist comes on screen the first line out of his mouth made me disgust him. The characters just in this game just stuck to me and they all were unique and special in their own way. Extremely good voice acting and very well done character animation.

Over all I give this title a 9/10.

Why it isn't a 10/10 nothing major very little bugs like enemies die and freeze frame in walls (Happened 3 times on first play through which was roughly 12 hours on 2nd hardest difficulty so very infrequent) The stealth is very fun to play,but the enemy AI is kinda lacking they mostly look at you say something along the lines of "Huh?" or "What the..." my favorite though is "Curious..." then walk away like nothing happened. It's pretty much don't get seen killing people. Not that big of a deal though considering some enemies can't be killed with stealth.

A must play definitely rent it at the very least. You will not be disappointed. Have

Having skipped the 2009 Wolfenstein by id/Raven/Activision, and my last experience in the franchise being in the 90's/early 2000's, I was expecting this to be a completely different experience :) How could it not be of course.

It doesn't take long to get sucked into the storyline and the game play. For me, it was one of those games that makes you want to keep pressing forward because you cant wait to see what happens next.

Weapons = Awesome! Game play is very fluid and many times fast paced. Allows you to control the pace a bit by allowing you to take a stealth approach or simply run and gun which is kind of nice. There is enough difference in the levels and upgrades along the way that it doesn't feel like you are just grinding through the same thing over and over.

This game is a "Must Play" in my opinion. Even if you are brand new to the franchise, you can jump right in and feel at home.

I don't dare nit pick at the few items that made me give it a 9 versus a solid 10 as they aren't really worth mentioning. Very, Very minor imperfections that aren't present all the time, just in very few instances. You may not even notice if I don't plant the seed in your head ;)

Get it, play it and ENJOY!
